A very special post…

by on Jul.20, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

You do know I hate Intel & now you if you did not know I HATE NVIDIA more then Intel. Fanboy no, the first computer I built was AMD a DX-40 at the time and pretty much solid AMD from that point on. I bet you did not know this back then the motherboard could take an AMD CPU or an Intel CPU. Just an adjustment of pins then. Things have vastly changed.

This is a very special post. I own a ROG (Republic of Gamers) Laptop integrated Intel CPU and Intel Graphics as well a 1050 Nvidia Video card for gaming. Never could I get it to install Ultimate Edition goodness, that is until today!!!

I would call this a special post. How did this transpire? Mr. Breeg one of my leading Admin had started dabbling in Zorin O/S. Why? He was forced to buy an NVidia card, best buy had 0 AMD cards (probably sold out). Ultimate Experience gone. Evidently, Ultimate Edition does not play well with NVidia Graphics.

I have rectified that, how? I pulled in Zorin O/S, re-built the Nvidia deb exported it and took it up a notch. They may want my source code. This is an Open Source world. I am here to help.

My Rog now rocks Ultimate Edition & does not have one AMD part in it. This is going to open a world of Ultimate Edition. I have not started putting it on the net yet. Rest assured it is happening. I may have left a couple of things out. It is a ROG I built a Gamers Edition for it with “Maximum compression” It just scrolls & scrolls by with the number of games. It is no Joke. I thought about uploading a Video of it building / testing, nah we will wait. Huge doors are about to open.

Testing first.

Alpha on Ultimate Edition 6.6?

by on Jul.08, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

I just opened a new can of whip ass. Deepin? Ever heard of it? It will be the Operating System in China. Pretty. Desktop Environment to be honest. I have not started digging into it yet. I will adjust it to be USA friendly. Just a DE (Desktop Environment). I do have software that changes things at a blink of an eye.

Evidently, Ubuntu likes to think so.

I will not have you in the brink. I will adjust it massively. Lets start at Alpha.
I have been told my alpha releases should be final, we have not got there yet. Not close to what I would call a beta. I am providing you a chance to check it out openly.

I did not use compression=maximum, still sucked up 4.5 GB (uncompressed today).

I would not install it, nothing wrong with checking it out.
total size is 4,072,335,360 bytes That will go way down when I am done.

You will have to wait while it mirrors. I am going to bed, I have to work at my other job.

Oh, no not again. I get tired of upgrading websites. Guess where this website is at? That would be the basement… I have already compresses the 9.1 GB of data downloaded it and shoved it to the basement at over 600 MB a sec. Took I think 14 Seconds: Starting upload of /home/theemahn/forumubuntusoftware.info.tar.gz
Status: File transfer successful, transferred 9.1 GB in 14 seconds.

SSH in impregnated the database & running on the 12 Core / 24 thread server in the basement. Look at the address, the forum is offline until I complete the object at hand, will I set the server online? From the basement? I promise you faster then any server I have ever paid for in the past. This one I do not have to pay for it is paid for in full. Unlimited please. A AMD 3900X on a x570 with 60TB of space. It is no slouch. I do have 2 X AMD 32 core opterons offline, down there as well. Almost makes me feel like a hosting company.

Probably wondering why I am looking for a lawyer. If I can see it so can you. My Wifey has domestic Violence on her record from yes get this 25 years ago a M1 (misdeminor 1) violent crimes do not go away. They call it a “no bill”. Never convicted of it, but still on her record. Total Bullshit. Pay to get it expunged. A fight with her sister. 25 YEARS AGO.

Funny, felonies go away in 7 years. I had 7 of them all are gone. Child support, what were they thinking there? Took my Drivers License first so I could not find a job, they did not stop took my second house I bought, then gave me a felony, to ensure I could not get a job. All that is gone now. I honestly can not say that they screwed with my un-employment as well, actually locked it up, apologized & sent me a check.

I bet you are wondering what the other 6 are. Criminal Tools X 3, Fraud X 3. I cashed a check from a company I used to own & pre-dominantly why I no longer accept money from you even as a donation.

A fella ordered for his hotel. Roughly $3,000 worth of shit. In bedding. Comforters etc. Sent me U.S. Postal Money orders for the transaction. They were fraudulent. Sent me 3 X $1,000 US postal money orders. The end resolve? A pen I used to sign the checks is called a criminal tool. 3X, fraud? I did not know. I am glad that is behind me. I shut down that company, did you know they wanted to fly me to California to put me on TV I did have the highest in sales across the board. I was making PHAT Money then, as I sleep. Still charged that is solid BS.

Takes one bad apple.

It is no longer on my record, any of it. Did I have to tell you no. My mother always taught me honesty is always the best policy.

Yes, I am still TheeMahn

A new type of O/S is inbound.

by on Jun.13, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

I thought I would share the building of Ultimate Edition 6.9 Minimal Server running Ultimate Edition 6.9 Developer (also un-released currently). Based on Groovy Gorilla base. No GUI (Graphical User Interface) here, less resource hungry. I will not release it until it is installed on a server in the basement. Which one? It is not definitive yet.

JackHammer (main rig) is:
Operating System: Ultimate Edition Developer (6.9)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16 Core (32 Thread) – 360MM Liquid Cooled
Motherboard: Asus Hero VIII X570 (PCIE 4.0)
Memory: 16GB GSkill RGB Series 3200
Video: AMD X570 Gaming (8GB), 2 X LG 43″ Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitors
Storage: 1 X 1TB Inland PCIE 4.0 NVME, 3 X 1TB Sabrent Rocket PCIE 4.0 NVMES on a ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 PCIe 4.0 X4 Expansion Card
1 X USB 3.1 (Gen2) 6TB X 2 Seagate drives in Raid Enclosure (SilverStone SST-TS231U-C) Raid 0
1 X USB 3.1 (Gen2) 8TB X 2 Seagate drives in Raid Enclosure (SilverStone SST-TS231U-C) Raid 0
Network: 2 X 10 Gigabit SFP+ (Fibre optic), 2.5 Gigabit Onboard, 1 Gigabit Onboard
PSU: 850 Watt Rosewell Modular

Storage (server) is:
Operating System (will be): Ultimate Edition 6.9 Minimal Server
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Core (24 Thread)
Motherboard: ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS
Memory: 16GB GSkill RGB Series 3200
Video: Garbage (don’t care – this is a server)
Storage: 2 X 512GB Samsung 960 EVO’s, 5 X 8TB Seagates Raid 0, 2 X 10TB Western Digitals Raid 0
Network: 2 X 10 Gigabit SFP+ (Only using one currently), Gigabit Ethernet, 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO support, Bluetooth 5.0, TUF LANGuard and TurboLAN technology
PSU: 1,000 Watt (can not remember who made it)

Server #2: 32 Core AMD Opteron shutdown currently

Server #3: 32 Core AMD Opteron shutdown currently

Did you know shutting down Server #2 & #3 my electric bill went down substantially. Like running a microwave 24/7 & they are nasty loud (5 X 10,000 RPM fans each), the reason I threw them in the basement to begin with.

Wifey won’t let me buy more RAM (Random Access Memory) currently, in case you wonder why I am struggling in the memory department. I have been dumping money into the house. Server #3 has 128GB of ram if ram becomes a real issue. I will fire it up and put it to work. Took me 22 seconds to build the actual O/S & while benchmarking a drive, jamming out, and recording the video itself . That is nasty fast. How do you like my animated wallpapers? I wrote a package for that as well. Big things are coming.

WOW! That is a fast computer! No, a AMD Threadripper (didn’t the godfather of Linux just buy one of them) would make that look like a joke, same with an AMD Epic. A new ERA in computers is also inbound. The big difference and also why Linux has been gaining ground? Linux will use 128 Cores, thousands to be honest with you. Intel has corrupted you into thinking a quad core is enough for 10 years. I wonder why I am an AMD man. Call me a fanboy all you want. NVidia is next. Did you know I bought shares in AMD at $6.97 a share, how are they doing today as the rest of the market crashes thanks to COVID-19? Wait until the Playstation 5 drops & the new XBOX drops sporting AMD hardware, Your cellphone is also on the chopping block. NVidia will soon look like a pathetic joke. I do have a Genius I.Q. Even if I am drinking. I drink to dumb it down. Did you know next year I have been writing software for 40 Years? Building Operating Systems since 2006.

The server side of AMD is $51 Billion dollars a year. Intel has nothing a Thread Ripper can take down from the fastest Intel Server. I have not told you how fast an AMD Epyc is at 128 Cores. They are taking Market share from Intel in large scale & big money. 3 or 4 years ago, Intel Fanboys gave me crap, welcome to reality. Nvidia a new pill is coming & it is called reality it will be hard to swallow.

Facts are facts.

Fun facts,

You are BANNED!!!

by on Jun.09, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

Not you, certain applications. I have started working on applications into tmosb (TheeMahn’s Operating System Builder) to ban an application from being installed. Don’t worry after it finishes building the Operating System removes the Ban, so you will be able to install it if you like.

What applications?

The above Function functioned perfectly, just too damn slow & I don’t like to wait for anything.

Package not available? Find it and rebuild the array, in one clean sweep.

QuestForSpeed () {
HOLD=$(apt-mark hold fonts-noto-*)
HOLD=$(apt-mark hold snapd)
Font-noto in compressed size is 1/2 a GB, plenty of other fonts are available.
I hate snap another bloated piece of software. I am not the only one that feels this way. I do not care if Linux mint accepts their software or not, this fella will not.

I did buy a few toys, Operating Systems are being built with the quickness. Pretty close to a $700.00 upgrade to my main rig. I wanted to drop it in the server, but have ran out of PCIE 4.0 slots for now. One in video and one in 20 Gigabit networking. This is a server, I do not care about Video. I will eventually replace it with a 4.0 1X and drop the NVME’s in a 4.0 X 16 slot.

3 X 1TB NVME Sabrient Rockets in Raid 0. On a Asus Hyper M.2 PCIE 4.0 card.

Do not think for a second 4 X NVME’S will not push over 20 GB/s. That is not gigabits, that is GigaBytes. Noted by the big “B”. Write speed I am working on optimizing. Funny, in Windows I get 8.7GB/s write speed off 2 Rockets. Plenty of room for improvement. I am eventually going to replace the Inland NVME. I get 4.3 GB/s from it, when I mix it with the Rockets slows everything right down.

Game on!

by on May.21, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

I got tired of building and destroying my work, because I overloaded the O/S to fit on a DVD. I let my Icon set go (19,000 of them), we are not here for pretty Icons, right? We are here to play games. A huge and I mean huge collection of games on a single DVD using maximum compression on mate a lite O/S (more games). I can scroll on a 4K screen, yes there is that many games. These are not tiny games, some are most are not. Linux has 20 GB in compress format games, you probably did not know that. I do believe me. after you install it type:

sudo apt-get install game* # you will see

What are we looking at? The first of it’s kind. I did not rob you of a web browser, some applications are essential. I go back to work Saturday, time is not on my side. You can download it from Sourceforge:

Distro: Ultimate Edition 6.6 LTS “Focal Fossa” – Release x64 (20200521)
FileName: ultimate-edition-6.6-x64-gamers-mate.iso
FileSize: 4,351,467,520 bytes (4.3 GB)
Desktop Environment: Mate
MD5Sum: eedde02b8273e7458f887c8006168692
Type: Gamers
Installed Size: 9,830,129,664 bytes. (First pass), probably closer to 40 GB – the ISO was roughly 2.0 GB, when that was recorded.

I will eventually to reflect that in “buildiso” function to re-caclulate it everytime. What is crazy? I told no-one and 75 people have already downloaded it. Today 06/03/20: 4,871 X 4.4 GB? That is 21 Terabytes in short order & only one O/S. I am excluding any traffic I have seen or any other Operating System I have currently written.

I have to come back to reality. I grant you RepoStorm (formerly RepoMaster) has advanced in multi-folds since then (yes that is in 2014). It now processes entire repositories in a single stroke.

I spent so much time I hate the application, does it do it’s job? Yes, absolutely. Why do I hate it? When you write a single function wipes out sometimes 1/2 a million errors in one stroke, love it for that. It is the errors I can not fix w/o re-building the developers software, could I sure & i mean from the source code level. I have already written it for 7 years I am done.

Patenting gave me shit for trying to patent it, they can fuck off. What I actually I have is better. I do not have to release it, how would you like if I use my software to stoke the planet? Should I charge each developer or each O/S developer? Do you see where I am at? Sorry, there is the Cocky coming out on me. I am pissed they fucked with me.

I can build an Open Source Operating System with all errors fixed. Only one on the planet, using my software. Things turn around quite quickly.

I would prefer to run a O/S with an extra 1/4 of a million errors (fill in names here), it is not rocket science. This is not my first Rodeo & I do know what I am doing. I deliberately left out your names, no slander here today.

My sister may disagree, next year I have been writing software for 40 years. This is easily traceable, I started writing Ultimate Edition Operating Systems in 2006. All you care about is Linux based O/S’s? Lets pull back, prior. I used to write software for Windows, DOS as well basic to be honest I have wrote software in ASM, Delphi, Easy Amos, Logo & a bunch of programming languages I prefer to forget. Assembler is all I care to remember. C000 in hex is 49152 in decimal.

Did you know a application that is less then 100,000 lines in code takes out Millions on Millions of applications & it is not for dinner. Guess who owns that application. It is not the Patent Office, they had their chance.

The Patent officer told me that. You do not have to release it. What I write, things change. Now, I have to question weather I want to be a prick. I would have never had the time to finish it minus covid & being laid off. I see a new TMOSB coming.

Thanks COVID-19.

Can you say HUGE?

by on May.17, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

I just installed Ultimate Edition 6.6 Developer on my main rig. As an ISO is only 4.3 GB (4,314,519,552 bytes to be exact), however sucked up close to 50 GB once installed & is downloading 1.7 GB of updates & I just built it. It took me about 1/2 an hour to install on high end hardware. I fired up Pithos (Pandora Client) to listen to tunes as it installed. I am forewarning you it takes a long time to install. I just upgraded to an X570 Asus Hero VIII 2 or 3 days ago. Still on water 360mm cooling.
Installing 6.6 Developer
Finished Installation

You may wonder how the hell did I fit 50GB of data on a 4.7 GB DVD?
tmosb –build ultimate-edition-6.6-developer-x64.iso defaultde=kde kde compression=maximum -YES

Large and in charge

I let it finish, was probably roughly 2 GB in size, then I “Modified” it.
tmosb –modify ultimate-edition-6.6-developer-x64/ edge #edge=”cutting edge”

tmmount –add full
tmmount –add lite
tmmount –add server
tmmount –add wine
tmmount –add extra
tmmount –theme 6.6
tmmount –dist-upgrade

exited the chroot environment with: exit #(which resets sources to LTS – Long Term Supported)
Built the ISO with tmosb –buildiso ultimate-edition-6.6-developer-x64.iso compression=maximum

Filesize? I did tell you above.
md5sum ultimate-edition-6.6-x64-developer.iso

Source Build platform:

JackHammer is an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16-Core Processor resonating at 4725 MHz
CPU Core(s) / Thread(s): 32
MEMORY: 16384620 bytes
HOST ARCH: 64 bit
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=”Ultimate Edition 6.6 Server LTS”

Installed Size: 10,539,712,512 bytes. <<- do not buy into that, after re-built is close to 50GB.

I want you to be aware I have been writing a frontend Graphical User Interface (GUI) for a new program called Ventoy for Linux based Operating Systems & it is off the chain. I can load hundreds of Operating Systems on a single thumbdrive as an ISO, no conversion no extraction required. I used Ventoy to install Ultimate Edition 6.6 Developer off a PNY Pro Elite 256GB thumbdrive at 400 MB/s and still took half an hour I want you to be very aware installation is VERY SLOW. The end resolve is phenomenal.

You can download the Linux Version from our UETOYS folder. Yes, I see longpanda has released a newer version & yes once again I will update the deb. Great guy.

I do know what you want. Gamers, Lite, etc. If I do not have my software, how can I build that for you? I am taking care of developers first.

Imagine a 50GB Gamers on a DVD? Give me time. I am a “Game” Changer. I have been building Operating Systems since 2006, think about that.

Did you know? I send information across my local network faster then any locally raided Hard disks also on 10 Gigabit USB 3.1 Gen2 (raided) . I am on dual 10 Gigabit fiber optic. Networking over a Gigabyte a second, not Gigabit. Data flows, up in here. I am fixing errors at that same speed.

Is it a warning?

by on May.01, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

Is it a warning, because I fixed your error?


The command is listed both in a menu file and a desktop file

Per the tech-ctte decision on #741573, this is now prohibited.

Please remove the menu file from the package.


Not Called – fixes 1 Warning and creates 2 warnings via calls from postinst, postrm

CommandInMenuFileAndDesktopFile () {
cat “${FILE}.deb.errors” | while read ERRORS
FOUND=$(echo “${ERRORS}” | grep “command-in-menu-file-and-desktop-file”)
if [[ “${FOUND}” ]]; then
SCRAP=$(echo “${ERRORS}” | cut -d “:” -f3 | sed “s/ command-in-menu-file-and-desktop-file //g” | cut -d ” ” -f2)
if [[ -f “${FILE}/${SCRAP}” ]]; then
Encapsulate “Removing menu file, since we have a desktop file.”
rm “${FILE}/${SCRAP}”
Encapsulate “File does not exist: ${SCRAP}. Already fixed?”

Do not worry does not run. I already looked into it, more code then I want to write. I am writing code to try to remove errors and warning not add them.

We are on pass #2, pass #3 we are done. I have already installed the software on the server.

Who has their shit together?

by on May.01, 2020, under Ultimate Edition

That would be libc the basis of much software in Linux in general.

We have built a totally perfect deb.
Recursively removing libc6-dev-sparc64-cross_2.31-0ubuntu7cross1_all/ since we have a perfect deb.
Moving libc6-dev-sparc64-cross_2.31-0ubuntu7cross1_all.deb to .debs/

Over and over and do not care the architecture, evidently I did fix something all have in common, an exception to the rule:
Warning: W: libc6-hppa-cross: shlib-with-executable-stack usr/hppa-linux-gnu/lib/libutil-2.31.so Logged to all_warnings.txt.
Do we question: NFO: N: 27 tags overridden (23 errors, 4 warnings)

I have seen Googles “Go” Language possess perhaps the most errors. I am not going to fix them. They have phat money, pay someone to do that.

We are moving forward: 46,131 perfect packages & have not launched nfo’s yet on the server, pulling in packages.

Beginning build of libdeal.ii-doc_9.1.1-9build2_all/ 5424 of 17306 deb(s).
Warning: W: libdeal.ii-doc: privacy-breach-generic usr/share/doc/libdeal.ii-doc/html/doxygen/deal.II/step_10.html Logged to all_warnings.txt

Look at the list of effected software on that one. It get’s much heavier when you start looking at it a singular package at a time. Probably over a Million Warnings when you start to think about it that way?

We will talk after Repostorm finishes. 5892 of 17306 deb(s). Right now, a deb every second. Not to say large debs are coming.

Warning: W: libghc-gi-gdk-doc: privacy-breach-generic usr/share/doc/libghc-gi-gdk-doc/html/GI-Gdk-Objects-Cursor.html Logged to all_warnings.txt. Is that on the list? The answer is no.

Let me be clear here, the 46,000+ debs are solidly perfect, zero invention of nfo, chewing the piss out of my server days at a time. That number is growing. Repostorm is chewing up data & fixing your packages. I guess that is the bottom line. No, it is not. Corona, gave me the time to write the software.

I stand corrected:
We have built a totally perfect deb.
Recursively removing libgo-10-dev-sparc64-cross_10-20200411-0ubuntu1cross1_all/ since we have a perfect deb.
Moving libgo-10-dev-sparc64-cross_10-20200411-0ubuntu1cross1_all.deb to .debs/

Non-dev file are error pact, just telling you. Do you remember when I was deliberately fixing Microsoft Visual Studio (VSCODE) errors?

I am processing the entire Ubuntu Focal Repository a LTS (LONG TERM SUPPORTED). I am a bad man. Can you imagine I build a Operating System off the resulting Repository? Only one word: Bulletproof. 6757 of 17,306.
40,018 Perfect deb(s) of 60,890 deb(s) when I started. If I fix one error, does it not make Ultimate Edition better then Ubuntu? I have fixed 1,000’s and thousands. Note the 17,306 what is 60,890 minus 40,018, i can promise you it is not 17,306 as soon as this pass finishes even less.

Thank you Repostorm. Wait until it is embedded in your O/S and fixing packages as they are coming in. My server can take a breather.

Yes, I know my limitations: this function is never (called):
CommandInMenuFileAndDesktopFile () {
cat “${FILE}.deb.errors” | while read ERRORS
FOUND=$(echo “${ERRORS}” | grep “command-in-menu-file-and-desktop-file”)
if [[ “${FOUND}” ]]; then
SCRAP=$(echo “${ERRORS}” | cut -d “:” -f3 | sed “s/ command-in-menu-file-and-desktop-file //g” | cut -d ” ” -f2)
if [[ -f “${FILE}/${SCRAP}” ]]; then
Encapsulate “Removing menu file, since we have a desktop file.”
rm “${FILE}/${SCRAP}”
Encapsulate “File does not exist: ${SCRAP}. Already fixed?”


The command is listed both in a menu file and a desktop file

Per the tech-ctte decision on #741573, this is now prohibited.

Please remove the menu file from the package.
