Fix Installation Issues

 

We are going to discuss a problem that we are hearing of from time to time with some new user of Linux or Peach. The issue stems from the new user not being able to install Peach OSI onto their computer. Typically I will get an email informing me that something is wrong with Peach OSI and the new user will say something like, “I’ve tried to install Peach OSI Barebones repeatedly and each time the installation hangs during the installation process.” This can be frustrating and if the user is trying to install Peach with Windows or any other operating system the failed installation can render their computer incapable of booting any operating system.

Let me start off by saying that the following may not be true of everyone who has this issue. But something like in 95 of 100 times that I get an email like this – the solution turns out to be what I am going to describe to you below. You need to understand that this failure to install would have happened to you no matter which version of Linux you would have chosen to use. The issue is not a problem with Linux, it usually is a problem with how you have equipped your particular PC. Sometimes you may have unwittingly added some hardware to your PC that cannot be allotted for during the boot process. Let me explain…

14 Practical Examples of the Linux Find Command for Beginners

One of the most common questions that I get is "How do I find a file that I've saved somewhere in Peach?" Well here are some examples of how to find specific files from HowtoForge.com by using the "find" command. Another way is by using an application that is installed on every Peach distro named Catfish. To load Catfish - simply click on "Applications" in the top left taskbar of any peach distro and type in "Catfish" without the quotes into the search bar.

Here is the article about the "Find" command from howtoforge.com for those who would like to learn about who to search for files with a terminal command inside Peach.

2017 - Top 16 Best Popular Free Linux Games For Installing on Peach OSI

Linux Games Article

Time being what it is - relentlessly moving forward - Linux has had a bad rap in the past when it comes to game play. If you consider that most all of the popular game set top boxes run on one form of Unix or the other - this perception is not deserved. In this article I'm going to give you a condensed review and comparison of 16 Linux games that you should give some serious considerations if you like games and gaming. In order to make this list the game had to rate at least a 7.5 out of 10, it had to be free and each game had to be readily available for download and installation in any Peach OSI distro offering. Each of the 16 games are available from either the Gnome Software Center or the Ubuntu Software Center. (Icon links to both of these software centers are available on the bottom dock of every Peach OSI distro.) In most cases you will have better gameplay with the following games if you install a 64bit version of Peach OSI (suggested Peach distros are: - "Barebones" or "The Works"). Please note that we have made links to video for each of the included 16 Linux games and we have included those videos on one single page. Convention says that placing 16 video links with the graphics thereof on one page is not the best way to create an efficient web page and the next page to our Linux game review may load slowly because of the video pre-loading into the page. But more importantly, I believe that this is a small trade-off in order to keep the continuity and importance of the page. Once the following page loads you will be able to watch an onscreen video of each of the actual 16 games complete with sound so that you can best get a feel for the game. Personally I cannot think of a better way to review a game. Somehow just placing a screen shot of each game did not give a true depiction of the game being reviewed. In order to view each video simply click on the video. Please note that you can also watch each video in full screen mode. There are hundreds - if not thousands - of more Linux compatible games available in the Software Centers available inside Peach OSI. Feel free to comment and add your own favorite Linux games at the bottom of the page. Click "Read More" below to load the entire article.
