I was recently installing Debian 8.. When it asked me to enter a password for the root user I just hit enter without putting anything in, and it accepted it... After it installed I fired up terminal and tried to do some tasks using sudo... When it asked me for the root password, I hit enter without putting anything in and it said "Authentication Failure"
Is there a way taht I can change the password for root? Thanks :)submitted by ExplosiveBrainPower

I want to buy a new laptop. I'm going to add it to my student loans which are already high, and I'm a cs major, so it doesn't seem like that bad of a choice. I'm willing to go up to $1700 probably. I want something durable with like an i7 processor and good graphics. and then as long as everything else is upgradable i can put more ram and a solid state drive in later if it didn't have one. A nice video card would be good too. Can anyone recommend a laptop like that? Also i plan to run Debian on it exclusively probably.submitted by 5methoxy

Point Linux 3.0 (Agni) is the latest release of the distribution based on the stable branch of Debian - the current version of which was released in April of this year and is code named Jessie. Point Linux aims to provide a very stable system - thus the Debian base, but with modifications to improve the user experience over a stock Debian system. One of the things the Point Linux developers do to achieve this goal is to provide their own repository, where current builds of Firefox and Thunderbird are available for installation (unless the full installation medium is used, in which case these programs are installed by default). This is in contrast to the Debian experience where only unbranded versions of these programs are available. Point Linux also chooses default desktop environments for the distribution based on the ease of use of the desktop. This choice has traditionally been the MATE desktop environment, but with this release Xfce has been added as an official desktop environment.
Xfce has a long history of being the third most popular Linux desktop. For over a decade, it trailed behind GNOME and KDE. Then, a few years ago, during the revolts against GNOME and Unity, it became a major contender, and ever since has consistently polled a strong second to KDE. Nothing had changed in Xfce, but users' search for alternatives made them appreciate Xfce in a way they never had before.
We are proud to announce the release of Tanglu 3 (Chromodoris willani) today!
Tanglu 3 comes with fresh new packages, a Linux 4.0 kernel, systemd 224,
KDE Plasma 5.3 and the latest GNOME release, GNOME 3.16.
