Reddit: What laptop to buy for Linux?

Wednesday 9th of November 2016 05:24:52 AM

With Lenovo being idiots about supporting other OSs and quite frankly none of their recent stuff is any good, what should I look at for a good Linux laptop? Preferably something with a dedicated GPU so I can dual boot.

Reddit: How does Linux handle Microsoft Precision Touchpads?

Wednesday 9th of November 2016 02:46:31 AM

These touchpad eschew the traditional driver and instead dump a raw event stream to the host OS, and the OS is responsible for interpreting it. In Windows, these touchpad are excellent, and rival Apple hardware.

If I buy a laptop with a Microsoft Precision Touchpad, how does Linux handle it? Does the pad work with the Synaptic drivers because the hardware is made by Synaptics? Or does whatever distro you're using itself handle and interpret the event stream, like Windows 10 does?

People (including Dell!) have installed Ubuntu on Dell XPS machines which feature PTP hardware, so I know it works. I want to know if it works as well in Linux as it does in Windows, and if it doesn't, what the configuration options are.

Reddit: What's the point of pseudo devices?

Wednesday 9th of November 2016 02:40:09 AM

I've been reading through Linux Journey to learn more about Linux. In the Device Names section of the Devices lesson it talks about pseudo devices, specifically /dev/null, /dev/random and /dev/zero. I was wondering what the point of these devices, and similar devices, are. Isn't it useless to have a device file that just outputs zeros or random digits? Any sort of clearance on this would be appreciated.

LXer: Python List Methods

Wednesday 9th of November 2016 02:23:50 AM
Using methods with lists gives you the power to manipulate the data stored in the lists quickly and effectively. Many of these methods are concerned with finding, adding, and removing pieces of data stored within the list they are being called on. Others are more concerned with the structure of the list itself.

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
