TuxMachines: An Everyday Linux User Review Of Xubuntu 14.10

Sunday 4th of January 2015 09:34:59 PM

It has been just over a year since I last reviewed Xubuntu, so this review is well overdue.

Xubuntu has been one of my favourite distributions for a long time and for a number of very good reasons.

Xubuntu comes with the XFCE desktop environment which means that it is lightweight and highly customisable.

What I also like about Xubuntu over some of the other XFCE based distributions is that it doesn't overload you with applications. You get just enough to cover the bases but it is then up to you to install what is important for your needs.

Reddit: sshd spawning tons of children

Sunday 4th of January 2015 09:21:00 PM

I'm trying to help a friend out, but currently, it seems something has caused 500+ sshd child processes to spawn, and were a bit flabbergasted how and what is causing it. The system is CentOS 6.5/latest and sshd is the latest as far as I know, we don't think its compromised, as its actually sshd processes, and we've also inputted stricter ssh ratelimiting into iptables.

Reddit: Looking for AudioBooks on Linux, networking, SAN, Storage, Servers, etc.

Sunday 4th of January 2015 07:03:00 PM

Hi all, I am an up and coming Linux/AIX/HP-UX server admin. I have the basic knowledge I need to handle day to day activities, but I want more knowledge. I also have an hour drive each day in which I have been listening to music, but I want to make the most of this time and listen to audiobooks that may help build my professional career. Any ideas?

Reddit: How do I copy specific files, in Linux and from a dying PATA/IDE HDD, to another drive like with dd(rescue)?

Sunday 4th of January 2015 07:02:15 PM

How do I copy specific files, in Linux and from a very old dying PATA/IDE HDD, to another drive without messing it up like dd(rescue) commands? I only need to force copy specific files and not the whole drive!

Thank you in advance. :)

Elementary Extensions for Python-EFL

For those who are unaware the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries and Elementary are the tools that power the Enlightenment desktop and a growing number of other applications. To learn more about getting started with Elementary and python you should check out the full API reference here, the examples on git, or stop by #e.py on Freenode. I have been working on a number of small applications using Elementary. While building these applications I found myself reusing a few of the same gadgets in different places, so I had the idea others might find some of them useful as well. Read more

‘Enterprise customers are now more willing to implement open source’

Jim Whitehurst expects India to play a larger role in NYSE-listed Red Hat’s global strategy, thanks to the rapid pace of infrastructure creation. “When a new system’s put into place, it’s increasingly likely that it may be built on open source. We like places where there is a lot of infrastructure going in,” Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer, Red Hat, said. Red Hat is the world’s largest commercial distributor of the open source-based Linux operating system. Open source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. In an interaction with BusinessLine, Whitehurst throws light on the opportunities in the Indian marketplace for open source. He also explains why the company is keen to increasingly move more support functions to India. Read more

The Navy's Newest Linux-Powered Command Center Is Right Out Of Star Trek

The DDG-1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer could very well revolutionize the way the Navy does its surface warfare business. One of its biggest innovations is ditching the cramped, darkly lit Combat Information Center (CIC), a fixture for many decades on past USN combat ships, and replacing it with the state-of-the-art, spacious, Star Trek bridge-like Ship's Mission Center.

Today we are pleased to announce the release of Black Lab Professional Desktop 6.0 Service Release 3 or SR3. Black Lab Pro Desktop 6.0 SR3 is a major upgrade to our pro desktop line of distributions.
