TuxMachines: Five Great Applications For Systems Admins

Monday 29th of December 2014 09:26:45 AM

Being a systems administrator is a difficult, often thankless job. You’re one of the people responsible for keeping the entire IT infrastructure of your business up and running. What that means is that whenever something doesn’t work the way it should, all eyes immediately turn in your direction.

You can hardly be blamed for looking to make your life a bit easier. I’d actually recommend that you do so, truth be told. The less time you spend slogging through all the basics of administration, the more time you can devote to improving your server.

To that end, I’ve compiled a list of a few of the best sysadmin apps on the web; tools that any Linux administrator worth their salt should consider using.

Reddit: Install Manjaro 32-bit error

Monday 29th of December 2014 04:19:17 AM

I put the ISO on a USB using YUMI. I went to the CLI INSTALL. When I clicked on "Install system" it just said "installation failed". When I went into the regular GUI install it said "Base Filesystem does not exist".

I have redownloaded and rewrote it to the usb 16 times today using multiple different programs. The ones that say "Write" or "Read" (The programs that write the iso to the usb) corrupt my USB btw.

Reddit: Tribes Ascend

Monday 29th of December 2014 04:15:26 AM

Is there some way to get tribes ascend running on linux? Specifically Ubuntu? (whatever the newest version is). I'm not sure if wine works, as people say that it doesn't work for them because of launcher issues, but can someone try it out for me? I haven't gotten my linux machine yet.

Reddit: So I got this server, need ideas for what to do with it.

Monday 29th of December 2014 03:48:06 AM

My brother gave me a rack server he won in a raffle at his job, its a poweredge 2950 with 2 quad core 3.0 ghz processors, 6 hard drives, 32gb ram. I setup raid5 and ubuntu, I got general utilities set up, web hosting, programming language support, ftp, ssh, etc. Now I'm trying to figure out what would be a good or a cool use for it. I considered using it to mine bitcoin (which I know nothing about, except it probly isnt a good idea without specialized hardware) and I considered using it to just host alot of files for myself personally on the web using dynDNS or something. But I feel like there's something better I can be doing with it. Can anyone offer some ideas? Thanks!

Reddit: Linux Live USB not booting on Gigabyte z97x gaming 5 with intel i7 4790k and R9 290 Vapor-X.

Sunday 28th of December 2014 11:55:55 PM

Hello everybody... I need some help about this.. Can anyone tell me what to do?

Actually I'd like to boot backbox live usb, but I can't boot ubuntu nor backbox or, I think, any other distro. Is there some incompatibility or am I missing something? I used unetbootin to install 64bit OS in the USB. I tried 32bit with Ubuntu, but same result.

Thanks in advance

  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
