I just switched to Ubuntu and I was wondering if there were any brick mortar books to learn Linux that all of you would suggest? I say brick and mortar books because I want something I can take to work, we can't have cell phones on us. So, any y'all would suggest?submitted by xnickx45x

I've accidentally deleted a physical disk which was part of my primary volume group on a virtual server.
I don't think any extents on the disk (/dev/sdb1) were actually being used, as the server is still functioning correctly.
pvscan shows this:/dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Input/output error /dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 274877841408: Input/output error /dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 274877898752: Input/output error /dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Input/output error /dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 4096: Input/output error /dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Input/output error PV /dev/sda2 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [49.88 GB / 0 free]
Is there a way to remove the deleted disk cleanly from the config, assuming it isn't actually being used?submitted by pskipw
Fedora is a global Linux distribution, as soon as we say the word “Global”, immediately internationalization (i18n) and localization(l10n) become a utmost important part of the distribution.
In the tests shared yesterday of looking at the AMD FX-9590 CPU on Linux and other CPU benchmarks from this weekend, some Phoronix readers raised concerns about the CPU scaling governor differences between the AMD and Intel hardware. The AMD FX CPUs continue to use the CPUfreq driver by default to handle their scaling while modern Intel CPUs have the new Intel P-State driver. Beyond the Intel-specific P-State vs. CPUfreq, the AMD CPUs generally default to using the "ondemand" governor while with Intel desktop CPUs on P-State it generally ends up with the "performance" mode. Some Phoronix readers found performance vs. ondemand differences to be unfair, but for AMD FX CPUs, there isn't much of a difference in our common CPU torture test benchmarks found in the Phoronix Test Suite.
Google has sent invitations for an event in India on September 15. While the invite itself says "More details closer to the date!", it is expected that the much-awaited Android One smartphones will make their debut at the event.
Android One was announced back in June at Google I/O with India's Karbonn, Micromax, and Spice the confirmed launch partners, though more Indian companies have reportedly joined the list since then.
Is there any projects that are along the lines of this idea?
User Space binary distribution package manager like Docker that also tracks its system's /etc/*-release then reads distro specific dependancys (via apt rpm portage etc) sees what needs to be installed and runs that installer, runs its local package install.
This would make a singular binary package feasible across multiple distros.
This seems like an acutally simple and elegant solution that I do not believe exists. Torvalds cited f20/f19 compatibility but unless were jumping glibc or other major dep the User Space package would work across multiple distros. It seems the only problem we are facing is interfacing with system deps to make sure it runs.submitted by lavacano
Linux kernel developer Dmitry Monakhov was detained for 15 days for disobeying a police officer on Saturday. The debacle came about when Monakhov decided to protest the recent invasion into Ukraine by Russian armed forces.
This was not the first incident of aggression towards Monakhov. During a rally in July of 2013 he was reported to have been beaten in one of the police vans most likely for participating in expressing his discontent with Putin’s policies regarding human rights.
According to Monakhov’s tweet the day before his most recent run in with the authorities, he announced, “I am a Russian. Not cattle. Not a killer. And it is not the occupier. I am ashamed that my president Putin. At 9.00 I go to Manezhku [Manezh Square] against the war.” after this tweet, pictures surfaced a day later of four Russian policeman arresting him.
