Reddit: Question about VPN

Friday 22nd of April 2016 11:09:24 AM


I connect to my company's VPN from time to time. I don't know the VPN technology enough to know if all my internet requests go through the VPN, or if I only go through the VPN if I access one of the machines of the private network?

Basically, I want to know if my company will know all of my web history if I am connected to their VPN.

  • kver’s definition of anarchy
  • Travis-CI builds of KDE projects on Archlinux chroot

    How many of you knew that KDE has a github mirror? The mirror is useful for github users/fans (who can for example star their favorite KDE projects), but can also be useful to KDE developers who don’t care about github. I was on of them, until today. Github features an excellent integration with Travis-CI. This means that you (as github user) get for free a Continuous Integration system already up and running, waiting for your commits.

  • An Easy Way To Build An Ubuntu Kernel With Hopefully Better Scheduler Performance

    Since the recent news about the Linux kernel being in worse shape than some people imagine, there's already been some downstream corrective action taking place. Clear Linux is one of the distributions already patching/tweaking their kernel for better scheduler performance but so far we haven't heard anything from the Ubuntu camp. Fortunately, there's been others working on their own solutions.

    A Phoronix reader contacted me this week about his build_ubuntu_kernel_wastedcores script. This script makes it easier to spin your own Ubuntu custom kernel and integrates the "wasted cores" patch cited by the earlier research into the poor shape of the Linux kernel scheduler.

  • Ubuntu 16.04 Released: See what’s new

    For those who might not be aware of that fact that Canonical keep the funkiest name for their project. All the official Ubuntu release names are like Ubuntu X.YY where is X is the Year of release Minus 2000 and YY is the Month of release. Since the date of release is not known and cannot be predicted till release, Canonical conventionally names all it release as Adjective + Animal. In Ubuntu 16.04, Xerial is an Adjective and Xerus is an Animal.

TuxMachines: Tesla hacker installs Gentoo and can now watch movies on the Model S’ 17-in display

Friday 22nd of April 2016 09:59:43 AM

For obvious safety reasons, most jurisdictions across the US and the world prohibit someone from driving a car if a “video monitor” is clearly visible from the driver’s seat. Hence why even though Tesla’s 17-in center display could certainly be capable of playing videos, the automaker disabled any video playing capabilities other than the video feed from the rear camera.

It didn’t stop a hacker who recently managed to install Gentoo, a Linux-based operating system, in her car and can now play videos directly from her Model S’ 17-in display.

I am using ‘her’ here because the hacker is staying anonymous but goes by ‘Hemera’, the Greek goddess of daytime.

TuxMachines: Snap Not Contained, Shuttleworth Says Don't Talk Back

Friday 22nd of April 2016 09:57:04 AM

Ubuntu continued to dominate the headlines today with some reporting the new version being actually available and all the usual accompanying posts. One of the more interesting Ubuntu articles of the day came from Matthew Garrett who said that Snap applications could expose your private data. In other Ubuntu news, Mark Shuttleworth announced the new codename for the next release already. Elsewhere, Gentoo was hacked onto a car computer and Microsoft is hiring Linux developers.

TuxMachines: Retiring 32-bit Cloud Images

Friday 22nd of April 2016 09:12:05 AM

The Fedora Cloud Working Group has decided to retire the 32-bit Cloud images. As of the Fedora 23 release, we will no longer produce the 32-bit images. We will, of course, continue to make 64-bit cloud images available.

Why are we doing this? We’ve been producing 32-bit images for years, and it’s a solved problem, right? Surely it’s as easy as “just keep doing it,” right?

Reddit: Is Xubuntu 16.04 stable?

Friday 22nd of April 2016 08:09:58 AM

According to the release notes

Thunar is the subject of a few bugs, though they all appear to revolve around similar issues. We have 2 patches applied that, while not completely fixing the issue, do lessen the impact.

I know Thunar used to crash a lot during copy/paste and it looks like the devs haven't repaired it. So, can you say that the newest Xubuntu is stable at all? I don't want to install the second file manager because it won't be integrated well with Xubuntu.

Ubuntu 16.04 Review: What’s New for Desktop Users

Ubuntu is a tricky distribution. As much as I love it on my home server, my desktop is a different ballgame. In my experience, releases between LTS versions have many new technologies that may or may not survive in the next LTS. There were many technologies or features that Canonical thought were ambitious -- HUD, experimenting with menus, online dash search, Ubuntu Software Center, etc. -- but they were abandoned. So, if I were to use Ubuntu on my desktop, I would still choose LTS. Read more

Workflow and efficiency geek talks Drush and Drupal

I started using Drupal because I needed an open source content management system (CMS) to use in several community projects. One of the projects I was involved with was just getting started and had narrowed its CMS selection down to either Drupal or Joomla. At the time I was using a different framework, but I had considered Drupal in the past and knew that I liked it a lot better than Joomla. I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency. I started working with Drush because I wanted a unified mechanism to work with local and remote sites. My first major contribution to Drush was site aliases and sql-sync in Drush 3. Read more
