Reddit: What is the latest stake on the necessity to be in certain Linux user groups?

Saturday 12th of July 2014 05:46:36 AM

Hi there,

I remember in the past years to have read controversial discussions on whether or not it is necessary to still be in certain groups as a user.

I take my latest /etc/group update as an opportunity to re-validate the question in the light of the latest systemd developments.

Thus, is it required as a user to be in groups such as adm, wheel, network, video, storage?

Thanks for your shared opinions!

LXer: Understanding the metrics behind open source projects

Saturday 12th of July 2014 02:35:57 AM
What do the numbers behind an open source project tell us about where it is headed? That's the subject of Jesus M. Gonzalez-Barahona's OSCON 2014 talk later this month, where he looks at four open source cloud computing projects—OpenStack, CloudStack, Eucalyptus, and OpenNebula—and turns those numbers into a meaningful analysis.

Reddit: Is the edx.org verified certificate for Intro to Linux necessary to use on a resume?

Saturday 12th of July 2014 02:13:18 AM

I plan on taking the course on August 1st, but $250 is a bit steep for me to pay. I know edx.org says that if you are going to be using the certificate professionally (resume, applications, etc) then you need the verified certificate. Would it be possible to just list the honor code certificate in the applications/resume instead though?

Reddit: Dual-booting w/encrypted Linux: Could use some advice before taking the plunge

Saturday 12th of July 2014 12:07:56 AM

Hey r/linux maybe you can help me. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but this isn't specific to one distro so I thought I'd post it here. I'm dual-booting for the first time ever and don't want to screw everything up.

I want to install Win7 and linux+XFCE (either Debian Jessie or Mint, probably Debian), but I want the linux partition encrypted. I don't want Win7 to be encrypted as I use it for gaming. All the tutorials I've found focus on full-disk encryption, which is a pain in the ass and not really what I want/need.

I did manage to find two tutorials and think I have a decent grasp of what I need to do (see below). If worse comes to worse I can just encrypt my Home folder in Mint (I don't recall the Debian installer offering this option), but I'd rather have the whole Linux partition encrypted if it's not prohibitively complicated. Thanks

Here are the tutorials. The Debian install seems a bit more complicated than the Ubuntu install, but I think I can handle it. Would these be good to follow for what I plan to do?

Reddit: How to run command inside screen for Minecraft server through a bash script? - Read post for more info

Friday 11th of July 2014 10:58:25 PM

Hey guys,

Trying to create a simple bash script for my Minecraft server that attaches itself to the screen, and runs a command in the MC server itself (such as 'stop', or 'say [message]'). Simple as that, yet I cannot figure out how to do this.

Any clue?

Thanks
