Reddit: Intel chip power consumption states?

Saturday 25th of February 2017 11:51:48 PM

I understand that Intel processors have various powersaving states, e.g. ranging from C2 to C3 and C6 to C10. My X1C3 (Broadwell) only hits C2,3,6,7 according to powertop. C8-10 remain at 0.0%. Does this mean there is still room to improve power consumption on Broadwell? Is somebody working on such further optimizations?

LXer: Master the Open Cloud with Free, Community-Driven Guides

Saturday 25th of February 2017 11:45:23 PM
One of the common criticisms of open source in general, especially when it comes to open cloud platforms such as OpenStack and ownCloud, is lack of truly top-notch documentation and training resources. The criticism is partly deserved, but there are some free documentation resources that benefit from lots of contributors.

Reddit: Which version of Linux to start off with?

Saturday 25th of February 2017 10:43:19 PM

Hi, I recently just tried installing Arch Linux on my computer but I could not get i3-gaps installed on it after many tries. Which distribution of Linux do you guys recommend for someone who is fairly new? I want to be able to use i3-gaps to customize my desktop.

Reddit: Text-to-Speech similar to Mac OS X quality?

Saturday 25th of February 2017 10:23:43 PM

I used to use TTS to Mac quite often. Now that I am using linux, I haven't been able to find any good replacement.

I am on Fedora and right now festival is broken on the latest release but I have read that it isn't great as far as voice quality goes. I've tried spd-say and espeak but they really doesn't sound great with any of the built in voices.

Anyone have any good suggestions?

Reddit: Help with Kali install

Saturday 25th of February 2017 09:36:21 PM

I'm a long time Linux user, over 8 years now

And for the life of me I can't find this solution anywhere!

When trying to boot to Kali, in brings me in emergency mode. I can't even login from it there

The only way I can boot and read logs is in the recovery mode in grub. I can boot fine from there with control d but in the logs the only error is: Kali kernel: intel_soc_dts_thermal:request_threaded_irq ret -22

Edit: forgot to mention I am dual booted with windows 7

Saturday 25th of February 2017 09:11:02 PM

For those curious how Ubuntu 17.04 is shaping up, considering this week was the "beta" release for participating flavors, I decided to take a fresh Ubuntu 17.04 x86_64 daily ISO and see how its performance compares to Ubuntu 17.10, Clear Linux 13600, Antergos 17.2, and openSUSE Tumbleweed.

TuxMachines: DebianDog Is a Useful Pocket Pup

Saturday 25th of February 2017 08:12:57 PM

The earlier versions of DebianDog work flawlessly, but the latest release seems to suffer from some work-in-progress flaws.

I had very little trouble running the default software as-is. When I changed system settings or configured applications a certain way, those changes either did not work or were accompanied by a variety of glitches.

I also had some trouble getting the persistent memory options to work. A related problem was setting up the personal save storage file. These issues cropped up or did not appear at all, depending on the hardware I was using. I used the same boot CD and bootable DVD drive on all of my test computers.

DebianDog Linux is a good alternative for Linux users looking for something different. It is a very good OS choice if you work on multiple computers or travel around to various work locations and want all your work files on the same OS configuration that you carry in your pocket.

DebianDog can be a very workable alternative to lugging a laptop around.

Reddit: how to teach linux to networking people?

Saturday 25th of February 2017 08:08:49 PM

Hello there fellow linux users :-)

My Employer has asked me to teach some basic linux knowledge to some of our staff.

The target audience are network technicians that are familiar with Cisco Products and know their way around IP/BGP and Layer 2 in general.

Apart from that, very few have ever really touched anything but their windows pc.

Does anyone have any advice or tipps on how to structure such lessons so they are interesting and as relevant as possible to their daily application?

Should i start out with basic history of Unix, explain the filesystem, package managers, the shell and how to use it?

Should i skip all that and try to create real world examples that can help with daily tasks? Show network diagnostic tools, etc...

Another Option would be grapping some old Notebooks and have an Install Exercise for everyone. I could get them to install Arch and explain it while doing so...

Any input is welcome :-)

LinuxInsider: DebianDog Is a Useful Pocket Pup

Saturday 25th of February 2017 06:40:00 PM
DebianDog offers a lot of functionality and customization that frees users from many of the restrictions of a Linux community tied up in developmental red tape. DebianDog is fast and focused on getting work done without a lot of distractions. However, it also is a disorganized desktop environment that can leave new users floundering. For example, the main menu is a mashup of standard system tools, DebianDog-specific utilities, Debian software, and tools to import some Puppy Linux software that's not designed to run on a Debian-based distro.

Reddit: New to Linux. How do I get my Graphics card working?

Saturday 25th of February 2017 06:39:24 PM

Just installed Mint 18 (Cinnamon), and was wondering how to get my Graphics card to work.

I have an AMD Radeon HD 7560D. It won't output from the Graphics Card, and I can't find any drivers for it in the Driver manager.

Is there something I'm missing? Will I have to install another Linux distro just to use this card? it's the only card I've got.
