Axiomtek’s PICO300 is a Pico-ITX SBC with Intel Braswell, SATA-600, extended temperature support, and both a mini-PCIe and homegrown expansion connector.

Axiomtek has launched a variation on its recently announced Intel Apollo Lake based PICO312 SBC that switches to the older Intel Braswell generation and offers a slightly reduced feature set. The board layout has also changed somewhat, with LVDS, SATA, and USB ports all changing location.

Reddit: Completely destroyed MBR, can no longer boot anything.

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 08:29:51 AM

So after windows completely destroyed itself yesterday I decided I would just go back to linux mint because it was easier. Somewhere along the line I decided to give arch linux a try, hoping to end with the awesome WM.

That didn't happen.

Instead, I now have a computer that has such a fucked master boot record that it's beyond saving. I cannot boot form USB or CD because it's so broken.

Attempted to remove the hard drive I installed Arch linux on, and nothing changed. My only hope is that I can replace the motherboard.

Will this fix my problem? I have no OS to boot to (not Arch, not windows), and cannot boot from any form of media.

Reddit: Linux Server Direction

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 06:23:10 AM

Hi All,

I have setup an old macbook now running Ubuntu. I have set up OpenSSH and have everything ready to have it act as a server for home media, fun scripts/crons, learning more programming, etc. My keys are on the Ubuntu system for my other three machines. It works great on my local network but obviously it doesn't work when I am not on my own home WiFi.

It would be awesome if I could SSH in from any WiFi on any of my machines (which keys are added). I am not sure how I go about setting this up -- I have been reading some about port forwarding, static IP, DNS, etc. but I am struggling to figure out how this works exactly or how to get it set up.

I am playing with the Subnets of my AT&T router a bit but am having no luck. I would love to have a real word to ssh username@domain.com but what's important to me right now is just being able to SSH in out of home network even if its typing the IP everytime...

Can anyone point me in the right direction or offer some guidance? I apologize for my ignorance.

Thanks

LXer: Persistent Memory Usage in Linux

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 05:25:54 AM
In most cases, when a machine crashes or fails, we lose whatever we had loaded into memory, which for some applications can result in quite a bit of time and effort to recover when the system comes back online. At LinuxCon Europe, Maciej Maciejewski, Senior Software Engineer at Intel, talked about how persistent memory can be used to retain its contents after a power failure.

Reddit: Why arguments in bash are specified after a minus sign and NOT + sign?

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 03:51:48 AM

Is it not more logical to have + for additional arguments than a dash or minus in bash commands?

Reddit: Determine PID that is generating DNS queries

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 03:49:14 AM

Howdy all,

I've got a single Ubuntu 14.04.5 system that keeps asking my DNS server for its own hostname as a AAAA record about once every 60 seconds, give or take a second. I have no idea what process on this server is so eager to get an AAAA record of its own hostname, and I'm exhausted on ideas to capture it.

The server is running salt-minion and salt-master, but IPv6 is disabled for both of those. The processes are also set to know the master is arbiter.lan not arbiter. Another hitch is that every tcpdump capture states bad upd cksum.

Has anyone seen this? Has anyone tried capturing this before?

Thanks!

Reddit: Ubuntu Server Config Help

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 02:02:41 AM

Hi All,

I have setup an Ubuntu server using openSSH on the desktop version of Ubuntu 16. I have this old laptop running 24/7 and acting as a server.

I SSH into servers all the time to work on Python and SQL stuff at work but it has all been setup for me. I want to have this laptop/server for media, fun cronjobs and just general enrichment for my own personal use.

I have several computers at home I want to set up to be able to SSH from each of them (currently works if on network). Right now, it is simply setup with a password. It doesn't take a genius to figure out this is not a great idea and I should be using a key. However, I am having a hard time finding a guide that doesnt go right over my head on how I go about doing this. So a few questions

  1. How can add the keys from my other computers so I can SSH in more securely to my server. (w/o a password preferably)
  2. Can I change my server name from username@1.1.1.1 (fake IP) to something more friendly like joe@smith.com (kinda like I do at work)
  3. Is there a way I can safely SSH into my server on a different network? I assume this is possible once I get my keys set up.

Thanks in advance,

Noob who wants to learn :)

Reddit: Recommendations for a Google Calendar-compatible Calendar App?

Tuesday 28th of February 2017 01:31:01 AM

Regrettably I'm running Cinnamon DE (tried GNOME, didn't like it), so I can't leverage GNOME accounts for Google Calendar integration.

Is there anything else I can use that will let me sync some kind of desktop-accessible calendar with my Gmail account? I've tried getting it to hook in with Thunderbird and various extensions, but no dice.

Four Things a New Linux User Should Know

If you’re making the move from Windows or Mac (or even from Android or iOS), welcome to our world. These days, using Linux for doing everyday computer tasks isn’t that much different than using other operating systems — meaning the learning curve is only slight. In fact, my colleague Phil Shapiro works at a library that uses Linux on the computers its patrons use and says that hardly anyone even notices they’re not using Windows. It’s that easy. Read more
