Reddit: Question about Selling Customized Linux Iso

Sunday 3rd of August 2014 11:27:41 AM

Just an honest question before I even consider doing something remotely illegal: Would it be okay to take a rather generic Linux distribution say Debian or Arch, then pre-install and configure some free software packages, maybe customize the look and feel etc, create a bootable iso and then sell this?

If not, would it be okay to only provide the download to someone who purchased a different product (like a sticker, a screencast, something else ...)?

To be clear, the source would still be open and all licenses would remain the same of course and it would be labeled as "Special blah blah Linux, based on Debian/Arch" etc.

Just trying to do the right thing and inform myself before I potentially step on someones feet or break any laws.

Thanks in advance!

Reddit: Why does linux font rendering sucks so bad?

Sunday 3rd of August 2014 10:33:02 AM

Recently I switched from Windows to Ubuntu and my eyes are bleeding cause of font rendering. I've installed infinality patches and unity tweak tool, but still I am not satisfied. Here I made a little comparison. Notice how text in Windows is thin, sharp and easy to read, whereas in Linux fonts are slightly blurred so there is not enough light between the letters. I hate it :(

Reddit: How do I scroll with touchscreen in UBuntu?

Sunday 3rd of August 2014 03:11:05 AM

When I drag with my finger on my touchscreen, it performs like if I clicked and dragged with my mouse left click instead of scrolling down the page. How do I configure this in Ubuntu (the latest version)?

Reddit: Any way we can get more people speaking up on this KDE feature request to get this design hole patched?

Sunday 3rd of August 2014 02:58:50 AM

For some reason, kwin's quick tile doesn't tile to the top of bottom half. It started as a bug ticket (the proper place, imho), and was moved to a feature request.

Looks like it's been sitting there for a year with only 15 votes.

Take a look and vote if it's a feature you'd like to have implemented:

Reddit: Is there a way to add rerouting tables to a hosts file? (Not sure if this is what it's called, please read the description for more info)

Sunday 3rd of August 2014 02:23:28 AM

Hi guys :)

I got myself a dedicated server from Kimsufi, and I managed to install windows 2008 R2 on it by following this guide:

My question is about that last command I put in:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i vmbr0 -p tcp --dport 3389 -j DNAT --to

Per default, all ports are open on the server, but by using this method of installing windows, I have to use that command to get access to those ports in windows, which means I have to use that command a lot. Now, when the server crashes, or if I just reboot the thing, all the ports are closed again, and I have to use the command over and over untill all ports have been reopened. Is there a way to add the ports to hosts file somewhere, or is there some other way to avoid sending that command every time the server restarts?

I'm not an experienced Linux user at all, so if you know a way to help me, it would be greatly appreciated if you could explain the steps I need to take in a step-by-step way.

Thanks in advance!

Intel Beignet Is Working Out Surprisingly Well For OpenCL On Linux

Beignet is the project out of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center for exposing GPGPU/compute capabilities out of Ivy Bridge hardware and newer when using a fully open-source Linux stack. While Beignet differs greatly from Gallium3D's Clover state tracker, this Intel-specific open-source OpenCL implementation is working out quite well for Ubuntu Linux. While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
