It already powers the hardware behind some set-top boxes and in-car infotainment solutions, but few realise that some development work on Wayland, the proposed display server replacement for X, is thanks in part to the Raspberry Pi…
A DRM-fixes pull request for the open-source Radeon Linux graphics driver for the Linux 3.16 kernel is going to enable BAPM by default for some APU systems.
BAPM is a power management feature that handles power budgeting between the CPU/GPUs on APUs. Up to now BAPM has been disabled by default, but for fixing some power-related bugs, this feature is looking to be turned on post-3.16 merge window for some AMD APU hardware.
The top story in today's Linux news is the IRS denial of nonprofit status for Open Source projects. Carla Schroder show us how to easily load up the old Quakes and Jos Poortvliet posted part two of his "where KDE is going" series. And finally today, Dedoimedo isn't entirely happy with Mint 17 MATE.
As of right now, I can do cat /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler which shows that my system has noop [deadline] scheduler. If I do echo schedulerdesired > /sys/block/mmcblk0/queue/scheduler then it will change it for me on the disk. Does this include ALU related tasks though?
I wrote a program that creates three threads that do different things: read, write, and some addition. However, changing schedulers don't seem to affect the order in which they complete, so I'm thinking maybe perhaps I have to tweak the scheduler somewhere else? Does tweaking the scheduler in the disk device also affect performing ALU or would it be read/write only?
I want to be able to show different threads that do different things simultaneously and how a scheduler would affect them but so far, it doesn't really show a difference.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!submitted by iBlowAtCoding
I have a relatively basic question about setting permissions for directories.
On a server, I have three directories, A, B, and C, and I have three users X, Y, and Z. User X owns directory A, Y owns B, and Z owns C. Pretty straightforward. I'd like to configure the directories such that X, Y, and Z have full permissions to their respective directories, but in such a way where X can read and write to all three directories, but users Y and Z can only read/write to their own directories. How would I do that?
The reason I'm asking is because I currently have lighttpd (user "www-data", group "www-data") configured to read out of its own directory (/var/www, owned by www-data) which also contains symlinks to the _HTTP folder in the home directories of two other users, which are owned by them. I want lighttpd to be able to read/write to both user's _HTTP folders, but neither of the other two users should be able to access, read, write, or execute the other's files. I've locked down /home so that the user's names can't be listed, but I don't have an ideal setup because each of the user's directories are globally read/writable as a workaround for this problem. Obviously I want to minimize access and secure things as much as possible.
Any assistance would be appreciated.submitted by DemandsBattletoads

Hello, I have searched through hours of forums and nothing has worked, so I have come here. I am running Kali Linux in virtual box. I have an AWUS036NHR usb adapter. I have set it up as a bridged adapter in Vbox setting but it does not appear in the lusb list. I can access the internet, but can find no indication that I am connected other than I can use the browser. I am relatively new to Linux and was hoping for some help. I have tried the following:
- changing the Vbox settigns
- ifconfig wlan0 up
- Based off a youtube vid, I downloaded compact-wireless-2010-06-26-p.tar.bz2 from the kali wikia
dmesg has revealed no errors and my adapter is not in the rfkill list.
If this is the wrong place to post this, I apologize and would ask to kindly be directed towards the proper sub for this question.submitted by ROFLicious

Hey guys noob here, so I downloaded the iso file on my USB drive and changed my BIOS settings to restart with USB. This worked fine and I installed Linux Mint. After installation the system restarted but instead of giving me the option to choose windows 7 or linux , it took me back to the installation part of Linux.
Now I can't access my BIOS menu to switch the start up process from USB to normal. Neither can I access my windows. Is there a way to fix this? I am using an Asus windows 7 64 bitsubmitted by youngballer
