Reddit: In the next five years, do you see Ubuntu or RHEL/CentOS based Distros capturing the server market?

Sunday 23rd of October 2016 02:54:31 AM

I'm a Freelance Web Developer who wants to shift more on the DevOps side of things and I want to fully specialize in one of these: the Debian/Ubuntu/apt based systems or the Fedora/CentOS/yum/dnf based systems.

I don't want to learn both and try to sail in two boats at the same time. So, I want to know from experts in this field, where is more business opportunity between these two?

Presently, (from what I've read and seen), Red Hat is the king on server side. Many linux variants used in the industry like Amazon Linux, Oracle Linux, CentOS, etc. all have Red Hat as upstream, and Red Hat uses Fedora as upstream. So, by learning Fedora, I can tap into a much larger server side market, am I right in assuming that?

OTOH, Canonical is also pushing hard their Ubuntu LTS on the server side of things. However, they seem to be focused on different directions (Unity 8, Ubuntu Phone, etc.), so I'm not sure how committed they are towards the server market.

So in brief, do you see Ubuntu or RHEL making it big in the server market after a few years? I might add that presently I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 on my laptop and whether or not I'll switch to Fedora will depend on the answer to this question. As I said, I want to focus on one thing exclusively.

Reddit: Multi monitor deliema

Sunday 23rd of October 2016 02:12:08 AM

This is not only a Linux problem, as Windows does this too, but long story short, when you have a multi monitor setup, when you open a program, or when a program opens a dialog, there is often situations where for whatever reason stuff will open on the wrong monitor, the wrong monitor being any monitor except for the one said program/dialog was launched from. So you set the centre as primary in a 3 monitor setup, and at times when you launch a program it ends up on the left one. Or you're working on the left monitor and a dialog launched by an app opens on the centre. etc... KDE has some rules you can set, but it does not work all the time.

So I've been trying to figure out a solution to twart this once and for all. My first attempt was to have the main machine be single monitor, and each monitor is hooked up to a Raspberry Pi. Then use Synergy for seamless mouse/keyboard across each one. This works, except Synergy crashes all the time, and the newer versions are very hard to install due to all the dependencies. I gave up trying to get that to work. Now experimenting with X2VNC. I sorta have it working, but it's very sluggish. Cursor is very jumpy, and God forbid you try to move a window. It's terrible. I still need to try it with a separate VNC server then just have the raspberry PI's VNC into that server too. That MIGHT be faster, though I don't imagine so.

Another option is separate X sessions on main computer. Except even with separate X sessions, it seems some stuff decides to open on the wrong session! I would have figured that would be impossible because each session should not even know the other exists, but... it does not work that way.

I can't be the only one that shares this frustration with multi monitor and it's always been a problem regardless of the distro or OS. Is there any solution to this? What about Wayland, will that possibly fix this by working differently with multi monitor? Is this something that is actively being worked on and I just need to wait? Any key people that can be contacted to suggest a way to fix this?

I've posted on various forums about this issue so not so much asking for help specifically, but mostly starting conversation to see if anyone else shares the same frustration with multi monitor implementation and if anything is known as being in progress to make it better.

Reddit: Send commands to Linux via text messages?

Sunday 23rd of October 2016 12:53:21 AM

Hi /r/linux

How to control a remote machine via text messages? Is it possible at all? Did anybody do this?

Send from the phone > Input: Basic shell commands

Receive to the phone> Output: Result of previous sent command

why? Because a) it's cool b) convenient, the phone is always near. Any mobile phone, regardless if its smart or not, can send texts. Wifi or 4g is not always fast or available.

LXer: Basic Guide To Encrypting Linux Partitions With LUKS

Saturday 22nd of October 2016 09:40:37 PM
There are plenty of reasons why people would need to encrypt a partition. Whether they're rooted it privacy, security, or confidentiality, setting up a basic encrypted partition on a Linux system is fairly easy. This is especially true when using LUKS, since its functionality is built directly into the kernel.

What is the GRUB2 boot loader?

There are various things that make up an operating system. In any operating system, one of the most critical parts is powering on the machine. During this process, the computer will execute a small program in read-only memory (ROM) to begin initiating the startup process. This small program is known by many names, but most often called a boot loader. In almost every Linux distribution, including Fedora, GRUB2 (or GRand Unified Bootloader 2) is the default boot loader. Even though it is a critical piece of the operating system, many people aren’t aware of the boot loader, all that goes into it, or how it can be customized. Read more
