Andrew (aka mcnalu), Dave (aka thelovebug) and Kevie return after summers that were cold, hot and just right, respectively. They start off with the usual roundup of new releases on distrowatch and then look at the linux distro Xebian, and even try to pronounce it properly. Those who like complex data wrangling may be interested in our look at the GUI database management software DBeaver (community edition), but if you prefer to browse through your snaps then perhaps Simple Gallery might be of more interest.

Along with the usual mix of Creative Commons music:

He started podcasting with TuxJam back in 2011 and followed this by co-hosting tech-themed, discussion show Crivins along with Gordon Sinclair. A full time Linux user, currently using Debian as his distro of choice, and a keen promoter of unknown artists/bands, especially those who release their music under a Creative Commons license, this led Kevie to starting the CCJam community podcast.

One thought on “TuxJam 96 – Xeger Beaver”

  1. TuxJam 96: just listened (I’m *so* behind with podcasts), and found a lot of interest.
    Amarok: I had been very keen on this at one time, but it was broken at some point in the past, then was abandoned. I moved to Clementine for several years, but when you mentioned Strawberry on this episode I installed it and am very impressed! I’d never heard of it before.
    Trains on ferries: my father and I used to go and spot steam trains in London in the 1950’s. He told me (or I misunderstood) that the Golden Arrow to France actually crossed the channel on the ferry. Not so, I find now, but there have been train services where the ferries can cater for trains ( – so I was almost right!
    DBeaver: heard of it a month or two back and looked at it. Seems great, but for now I use SQLite Browser, PHPMyAdmin and pdAdminIII for accessing the databases I use. I suspect that DBeaver will be much better for MySQL/MariaDB.

    Great show!
