Videos: LFNW2012 Teaching Linux and SysAdmin via Distance Ed

| |

David Mandel's Teaching Linux and Linux System Administration as Distance Education Classes.

I arrived right as the talk was starting and during the first minute or so I am franticly setting up the camera. Sorry about that. There is quite a bit of interaction between David and several audience members who also teach Linux in an academic setting. I teach a Linux SysAdmin class myself and enjoyed this. It was on the later track on the second day so it was allowed to run a bit long. Enjoy.

Videos: LFNW2012 Krita - Digital Graphics for Real Artists

| |

Oscar Baechler's introduction to Calligra Krita

As you may be able to make out from the poster image, Oscar is running Krita on Microsoft Windows 7. He wanted to show the new 2.4 release and had trouble getting it for his preferred Linux distro and had to settle due to time constraints.

While Oscar is fairly new to Krita, he is a very skilled and experienced digital artist and didn't take long to adapt to it (1 week). With his Wacom tablet, he makes it look easy. Room conditions and video resolution / quality make it hard to see some finer details so make sure to have your own copy of Krita active so you can play with it as you watch, pause, watch this video.

Video: Opencast Matterhorn

| | |

At Montana State University - Bozeman, they use Camtasia Relay for lecture capture and distribution. I wasn't even aware that there was an open source alternative until I saw an "Ask Slashdot" type article where someone asked about lecture capture software... but yes indeed there is the Opencast Community / Projects and the system they have produced, Matterhorn. Check out the embedded video below which is an introduction. As far as I can tell, it (only) offers Flash-based video but I'm relatively new to it and haven't gotten all the details yet. So far as its capabilities and features go, it seems quite impressive.

Screencast: Pear OS Linux 3.0 "Panther" for Mac OS X fans

| |

I threw together a quick screencast that shows the recently released Pear OS Linux 3.0 "Panther" in action. Pear OS Linux is stylistically patterned after (some would say ripped off from) Mac OS X. It is my understanding that this is based on a customized GNOME 3.2 that shows yet again, just how malleable GNOME 3 can be with some effort.

Please excuse the SPICE connection glitches witnessed in the video. I generally don't run into issues with SPICE but this setup was a bit different with the visual affects that are turned on by default in Pear OS.

Screencast: History and differences of Xen and KVM

| | | | | |

I threw together a quick screencast for Dann from the Linux Link Tech Show explaining the history of and differences between Xen and KVM. Feedback is encouraged because I'm sure I have some mistakes in there.
