TuxMachines: Desktop GNU/Linux/Chromebook

Sunday 19th of February 2017 11:05:48 PM
  • A Minimal Chrome OS Theme for Tint2

    I used to (and sort-of-still-do, I guess) run a sister site focused on Google Chrome, Chromecast and Chromebooks, i.e. the Chrome ecosystem.

    As such I am a fan of Chromebooks and Chrome OS, a Linux-based distribution based on Gentoo. The appearance of Chrome OS has waxed and waned in sync with Google’s ambitions and positioning for the OS, going form hyper-minimal to a full desktop clone (with the desktop-y Chrome Apps platform) through to a Material Design inspired Android + Chrome hybrid today.

  • Off-The-Shelf Hacker: Linux for Cheap Hardware, Then and Now

    Most people, don’t realize how prolific Linux has become. With the Embedded Linux Conference just a week away, I’ve been reflecting on how Linux has provided a sort of computing “circle of life” experience for me. It’s powered my computational hardware 20 years ago and continues to do so today.

LXer: Configure centralized syslog server The Right Way

Sunday 19th of February 2017 09:56:19 PM
How do you experience when something goes wrong on your system. You look at the system logs, of course! In all seriousness, understanding system logging is important so that you can troubleshoot when something went wrong. In Linux system we have syslog which captures every activity occurring on the system. Generally logs are stored on the local system at location “/var/log/messages” .However we can configure centralized syslog server where we can dump all the logs centrally to monitor all the logs in one go.

Reddit: Protip: `sudo torsocks $packagemanager` works exactly how you'd think

Sunday 19th of February 2017 09:49:48 PM

Some package managers (notably Debian) are working on native Tor integration with .onion mirrors, but this little torsocks hack is completely distro agnostic. Hell, it should even work with FreeBSD/DragonFly BSD's pkg(8).

  • Top Lightweight Linux Distributions To Try In 2017
    Today I am going to discuss the top lightweight Linux distros you can try this year on your computer. Although you got yourself a prettyLinuxle linux already but there is always something new to try in Linux. Remember I recommend to try this distros in virtualbox firstly or with the live boot before messing with your system. All distro that I will mention here will be new and somewhat differ from regular distros.

  • Comparing Mobile Subscriber Data Across Different Sources - How accurate is the TomiAhonen Almanac every year?
    You’ll see that last spring I felt the world had 7.6 Billion total mobile subscriptions when machine-to-machine (M2M) connections are included. I felt the world had 7.2 Billion total subscriptions when excluding M2M and just counting those in use by humans. And the most relevant number (bottom line) is the ‘unique’ mobile users, which I felt was an even 5.0 Billion humans in 2015. The chart also has the total handsets-in-use statistic which I felt was 5.6 Billion at the end of 2015. Note that I was literally the first person to report on the distinction of the unique user count vs total subscriptions and I have been urging, nearly begging for the big industry giants to also measure that number. They are slowly joining in that count. Similarly to M2M, we also are now starting to see others report M2M counts. I have yet to see a major mobile statistical provider give a global count of devices in use. That will hopefully come also, soon. But lets examine these three numbers that we now do have other sources, a year later, to see did I know what I was doing.
