Reddit: Stolen Chromebook- Is it Trackable?

Thursday 26th of June 2014 07:05:42 AM

Yesterday my chromebook was stolen in a home burglary attempt. Pretty sure the thieves don't know linux, or have ever used chrome's OS. I have already filed a policed report.

Assuming they somehow got it reset and went online (It has 3g built in) Would there be anyway I would be able to track the computer?

LXer: My first Linux based robot

Thursday 26th of June 2014 06:38:32 AM
I successfully connected my BeagleBone Black running Angstrom Linux to a Dagu Rover 5 Tracked Chassis using the Rover 5 motor driver board. I then wrote Python client/server scripts that allowed me to control the robot over a Bluetooth RFComm connection. These three blog posts document the steps I took to create the robot, from start to finish, with videos and images.

LXer: Automation controller taps Raspberry Pi Compute Module

Thursday 26th of June 2014 05:51:12 AM
Techbase has designed a Raspberry Pi Compute Module into a Linux-based “ModBerry” automation computer backed by an “iMod” cloud platform for remote control. The computer-on-module version of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, which began shipping this week, was anticipated by many, but perhaps nowhere so acutely as in Poland. First, we heard about A Sherlybox private cloud storage device based on the module from Polish startup, and now Gdansk-based industrial computer manufacturer Techbase has opened pre-orders for an automation computer called the ModBerry 500 based on the COM.

Reddit: webhosting/htpc/server help

Thursday 26th of June 2014 05:50:33 AM

I'm in the process of building a new multi-purposed home computer for work, photo editing, and gaming. My old computer is still fine, so i was thinking about repurposing it to a DIY home server, but I need reddit's help. I believe it's more than up-to-the task for what I want (2.4ghz q6600 intel quadcore, 4gb DDR2).

What I want for the old computer: backup and redundancy for my photography hobby and website. 2.I'm still learning webdesign, but I wanted to implement a download upon purchase feature instead of my current process of fielding emails and paypal payments, finding the photo, and sending the original. This would require the machine to be open to the internet. 3.On that note, as long as this machine will always be on and always be connected to the internet, I could ditch my current webhosting provider and presumably use my old computer to host the website (very light traffic ~300 sessions per day). 4.Hook it up to my projector and create an htpc where I can stream my home media library, music, netflix, hulu, etc...

Can my computer handle all these tasks? I'm especially interested in #2 and #3, I could live without #4, and feel comfortable with some sort of raid configuration with #1.

Thanks in advance

I was hoping someone might know a Valve developer who can shed some light on what issues it had to get removed during the beta and/or some idea when it would return?

LXer: New icon browser tool for GTK+ developers in development

Thursday 26th of June 2014 04:16:32 AM
As someone that has dabbled from time to time making small GTK applications for Fedora, one of the pain points when making an interface was just figuring out what specific icons were named, and what they looked like. My previous workflow was to open up /usr/share/icons/ in Files, and search for the icon and the icon name.

Reddit: fail2web, a fail2ban web GUI

Thursday 26th of June 2014 04:10:47 AM

This is a bit of self promotion, but hopefully other people will find this helpful! fail2web is a project that I have been working on for the past two weeks, and have found it really helpful on my VPS, and production Asterisk servers.

I don't know how many times I have accidentally locked my self out of SSH and SIP, and it is really helpful to quickly open this up in a web brower and quickly remove myself from the ban list. I hope to make it even more full featured in the future.

I also have a small REST server fail2rest and a library in Go that could be used easily for other things fail2go

LXer: Three-year upgrade cycles no longer make sense in cloud-mobile age

Thursday 26th of June 2014 01:54:32 AM
For a long time, IT's job was about procuring, installing and managing large enterprise systems and it took a long time and a ton of money to get them working right. That's why once they were working they tended to leave them in place for years. Today, however in the age of cloud and mobile, stability has given way to agility and the cloud's incremental updates make so much more sense.

Reddit: Recommend me a remote admin tool for KVM?

Thursday 26th of June 2014 01:41:10 AM

I'm looking at moving from esxi over to KVM on ubuntu 14.04 server for my home virtualisation box, but am a bit lost when it comes to remote admin tools for KVM.

Ideally I want something that does the same job as the vsphere client does in vmware land - and a windows client or a web interface (preferably both) is pretty much a must-have feature.

Any suggestions? I've tried googling around but the fact that 'kvm' means more than one thing in the computing world is fucking up my searches.
