Reddit: Need help running a command on login -- chroot

Thursday 21st of August 2014 11:04:11 PM

Hi. I have successfully chrooted a user so when he logs in he is at /home/user.

I want to automatically cd him to /home/user/subdirectory when he logs in.

I tried entering the cd command in .bashrc and .bash_profile yet that does not work. Any ideas?

LXer: Another great experience in Fedora bug reporting: Wine font fix solves my web-browsing problem

Thursday 21st of August 2014 10:24:12 PM
Fedora‘s motto is “Freedom. Friends. Features. First.” I’m here to tell you Fedora lives up to that billing. Why do I say this now? I’ve just had another positive experience with Fedora, this time in finding a bug in my system, adding my information to an existing bug report and now seeing updated packages pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repositories and onto my system, where the problem has been fixed.

Linux.com: What is Docker, Really? Founder Solomon Hykes Explains

Thursday 21st of August 2014 10:03:23 PM

Docker's meteoric rise is still puzzling, and somewhat problematic, said founder Solomon Hykes in his keynote at LinuxCon and CloudOpen on Thursday. Most people today who are aware of Docker don't necessarily understand how it works or even why it exists, he said, because they haven't actually used it.

LXer: Beer and open source with Untappd

Thursday 21st of August 2014 09:27:01 PM
Greg Avola loves beer and coding. He loves beer so much that he made an app, Untappd, where users track their favorite brews. He loves coding so much that he wrote a book about mobile web development. According to him, if it weren't for open source software, his app—and the projects of many other developers—simply wouldn't exist.

LXer: How to sniff HTTP traffic from the command line on Linux

Thursday 21st of August 2014 08:36:20 PM
Suppose you want to sniff live HTTP web traffic (i.e., HTTP requests and responses) on the wire for some reason. For example, you may be testing experimental features of a web server. Or you may be debugging a web application or a RESTful service. Or you may be trying to troubleshoot PAC (proxy auto config) […]Continue reading...The post How to sniff HTTP traffic from the command line on Linux appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:What are useful CLI tools for Linux system admins How to configure Nagios for audio alerts and mobile notifications How to monitor common services with Nagios How to set up RainLoop webmail in Ubuntu server How to set up MailScanner, Clam Antivirus and SpamAssassin in CentOS mail server

Reddit: I'm designing a project/lab based class for senior ECE students for C++ development on ARM processors. Advice welcome! (x-post /r/raspberry_pi)

Thursday 21st of August 2014 08:12:59 PM

The administration is only giving us a week notice that there will be a course and they would like to take me on part time to teach it, but whatever. That is big school bureaucracy for you!

The class will be heavily lab and project based, because let's be real, lectures on this type of thing are less than valuable.

If you were taking such a class your senior year, what skill sets would you be hoping to get out of it? What types of projects do you think are interesting and valuable? What - in your opinion - would motivate a student to use an ARM processor instead of a smaller and cheaper microcontroller? How would you want the course structured? What ARM platform do you feel would be most appropriate for this type of class and why? Even a list of "Knowing these 7 topics is essential to really get going with involved projects" would be very helpful.

More than anything else, I want these kids to walk away from the class feeling competent in making their cool projects ideas a reality. The administration is requesting a C++ coding element be involved, however that is less important than having a bangerang class that students feel give them the tools to do instead of just dream.

All advice welcome!

TuxMachines: LinuxCon: What's Going On With Fedora.Next

Thursday 21st of August 2014 07:49:11 PM

For those curious about what's going on with "Fedora.Next" in revolutionizing the Fedora Linux distribution, Matthew Miller -- Fedora's new Project Leader -- is presenting at LinuxCon Chicago today covering the ongoing working for the Red Hat sponsored distribution.

Matthew Miller's presentation is entitled "How Linux Distros Became Boring (and Fedora's Plan to Put Boring Where It Belongs)." It doesn't look like I'll make it over to LinuxCon Chicago due to the weather over here in Indiana today, but fortunately for all those outside of Chicago, you can already find Matthew's slides online.

Making of GNOME 3.14

The release of GNOME 3.14 is slowly approaching, so I stole some time from actual design work and created this little promo to show what goes into a release that probably isn’t immediately obvious (and a large portion of it doesn’t even make it in). Read more

systemd for Developers I

A service capable of socket activation must be able to receive its preinitialized sockets from systemd, instead of creating them internally. For most services this requires (minimal) patching. However, since systemd actually provides inetd compatibility a service working with inetd will also work with systemd -- which is quite useful for services like sshd for example. Read more

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.11 to Be the Last Update for RHEL5

The developers of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.11 have said that this will be the last update to be released in the series and that it concludes one of the longest support periods for a Linux distribution. The distribution was released back in 2007 and it's been updated numerous times. The devs have continued to provide updates and various fixes for this OS, keeping it grounded in the present as much as possible. The truth is that RHEL 5 uses a very old Linux kernel (updated) and it still sports the old GNOME 2 desktop. Read more
