Today in Linux news, LinuxInsider said "KaOS calms down" that unruly KDE desktop. Several places are reporting that the "catastrophic" flaw in LibreSSL has been patched. Mutkware.com has a look at KDE Plasma 5 and Jos Poortvliet tries to clear up some of the naming confusion. Robert Pogson says his Linux desktop isn't broken, and there's more in tonight's Linux news review.
An MIT spinoff has launched an Indiegogo campaign for a $499, Linux-based “Jibo” robot billed as a social, self-learning companion for families.
Like SoftBank’s Aldeberan-built Pepper, the Jibo bot runs on Linux and is designed to communicate and interact with people in a social, human-like manner. While the $1,930 Pepper is dubbed an “emotional” robot, Jibo is referred to as a “social” robot, and sells for a modest $499, via its $100,000 Indiegogo campaign. The device is expected to ship to funders Dec. 2015, followed by a commercial launch in 2016.
LXer: Docker, FESco Election, Android App for Flock, Flock Video Volunteers, and Release Naming (5tFTW 2014-07-15)
Some background: I make movies with my brother as a hobby, and make commercials for businesses in our community. When we were in school, the Macs there had Final Cut Pro. We graduated, and I switched to Windows 8 and used Adobe CS6. But soon, decided that Windows was shit, didn't want to buy a Mac, so switched to Linux.
Lack of PhotoShop wasn't an issue, as GIMP was much better, but lack of a professional video editing software was. Is there a good replacement for Final Cut/Premier/Sony Vegas?
Also, I experimented with Wine once, ran into problems, so preferably something that runs natively.submitted by eLyUKayEe

Here's the setup:
- Dell and HP servers, including console (oob) connection via MRV switch, in-band (DRAC, iLO), and SSH, although this post is primarily concerned with OOB console access.
- Accessed via Solaris bastion, with screen (the window manager) to allow multiple saved sessions to various hosts
- Accessed via Oracle Secure Global Desktop
- Accessed via VPN on OS X Mavericks via Firefox and X11 Quartz
Here's the issue:
I'm constantly faced with situations where I need to press a key or sequence of keys during boot. Often times I either get no response or a response other than the one I'm expecting.
- Pressing F2, F5, F8, etc during the boot process to get into various configuration managers, BIOS, etc. Usually these are accessed via ESC+[#], but that currently does nothing for me.
- Pressing ESC+SHIFT+r , ESC+r , ESC+SHIFT+r to send CTRL+ALT+DEL.
Are there any resources you're aware of that would help me understand this "stack" of terminals better so that I can troubleshoot this kind of thing myself? I'd like to avoid asking favors of our data center folks or other systems folks whenever this sort of thing comes up as it's just not a sustainable approach.
More specifically, what I'm looking for is:
1. Something like a list of terminal keypresses that translate into various keypresses on the actual server, for each server type.
2. A description of which part of the "stack" is supposed to catch what type of keypress
3. How to troubleshoot when things aren't going as planned.
Ok so I'm kinda new to linux and trying to figure stuff out. I've browsed google to no helpful avail.
I have Kali-Linux 1.0.7 on a live USB with persistence. The USB is 16gb, the Linux partition is 5 gb and the persistence is 9gb. Now for whatever reason when I try to install any new package, update or upgrade anything dkpg comes up with error 2: no space left on device. I tried cleaning my root folder but the property windows says it has 10mb of space left. Gparted says I have ~3.2gb free on the root partition, so why am I seeing this error?
Points to whoever helps me out! :)submitted by nathank1989
