Yesterday I was playing around with an Intel NUC box that I had been using as a kodi box and have decommissioned due to getting some snappy little S905X boxes.
I'd like to set the NUC up as a Linux torrent box that I can access remotely (not connected to a monitor/keyboard/mouse).
I had a bit of a play yesterday and installed Ubuntu without any issues but the computer doesn't show up on my home network (windows machines and Libreelec kodi boxes do) and I haven't been able to work out how to access via remote desktop.
Ideally what I would like the box to do is:
Run as an unattended torrent box Remote desktop access only from the local network as it will not be connected to a keyboard, monitor or mouse Be able to share files with my NAS Use a VPN on this machine only (no other machines on network need to use a VPN)
Is anyone able to assist with how to do this?
I'm pretty tech savvy but a newb when it comes to Linux.submitted by /u/blackshadow
Linux is known for offering tremendous overall hardware compatibility, but Linux is most famous for its compatibility with older laptop hardware. This article will share some of the best Linux distros for old laptop hardware and also touch on what the minimum requirements are for each distro.
Raspberry Pi Trading launched the Raspberry Pi Zero W, a WiFi and Bluetooth version of the Pi Zero selling for $10. There’s also a new case for both Zeros.
In honor of the 5th anniversary of the original Raspberry Pi, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and its Raspberry Pi Trading hardware unit has launched a wireless version of the stripped-down, $5 and up Raspberry Pi Zero. The Raspberry Pi Zero W is identical to the original except for the addition of the same Cypress CYW43438 wireless chip found on the $35 Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, featuring 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0.
What positions do you hold? Do you have degrees or certifications? I'm 35 and do construction. Should I just keep doing what I'm doing?
Sorry if there is somewhere else that I should be posting these questions. I just figured this would be the best place to get answerssubmitted by /u/_codename_duchess_
Ok so this is the first time I've actually posted anything. This may be a stupid question and the complete wrong place to post but I figured I'd give it a shot. So I was attempting to install arch linux which is new to me...I've been playing with linux for about a year now and wanted to give it a shot. I connected my laptop to a server in my work area just to have an Internet connection. I ran dhcpcd to get an ip address and started the install. About 5 mins later everybody's Internet went down. I have no idea if it was my fault or if it's even possible for that to happen. Did I just lose my job?submitted by /u/alwayslearning89
Manjaro-Arm for the Raspberry Pi and embedded devices is shutting down
I really like to make positive, interesting, and informative posts here. Unfortunately, the real world does not always cooperate with me on that. Today is one of those days.

Samsung Z4 SM-Z400F could be the phone that runs Tizen 3.0 out of the box
It has been over six months since the launch of the last Tizen Smartphone which was the Samsung Z2 and hence we should soon be seeing a successor to refresh the series. Earlier today, we reported on the leaked specifications and features of one such upcoming Tizen device which is the highly anticipated Samsung Z5. Now, we are getting hints on another Tizen device in the making bearing the Model name SM-Z400F which should logically be the Samsung Z4.

Pi Zero Wireless out now for $10
Today, on the fifth anniversary of the release of the original Raspberry Pi, the Foundation has released Pi Zero W, a Pi Zero with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, for $10.
The original Pi Zero was great (and still is!)—but many people found its lack of wireless connectivity an inconvenience. Now with Zero W, you can connect to the Internet without using any adapters, and you can even use a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard rather than wired USB, or use a Bluetooth speaker for audio.
On ZFS in Debian
I’m currently over at FOSDEM, and have been asked by a couple of people about the state of ZFS and Debian. So, I thought I’d give a quick post to explain what Debian’s current plan is (which has come together with a lot of discussion with the FTP Masters and others around what we should do).
Debian has always prided itself in providing the unequivocally correct solution to our users and downstream distributions. This also includes licenses – we make sure that Debian will contain 100% free software. This means that if you install Debian, you are guaranteed freedoms offered under the DFSG and our social contract.
Complying with Creative Commons license attribution requirements in slides and powerpoint
When I was at Mozilla and WMF, I frequently got asked how to give proper credit when using Creative Commons-licensed images in slideshows. I got the question again last week, and am working on slides right now, so here’s a quick guide.
