Hi, I am wondering if it's possible recover a botched Linux file system without performing a total restore. In the current state the OS will boot, but networking fails to start and at first glance the networking portion of the file system is corrupted. Other than reload, is there a manual procedure to recover the networking portion of the file system?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank yousubmitted by Catmandeux

When you install a Linux distribution, a set of programs comes along with it. It's easy to add and delete elements of the programs that don't fit with your needs, but what about altering the look and feel of the distribution to suit you? The key is to add a second desktop environment or window manager.
This is an example of how Linux is all about freedom of the user, by the user.
It's long been the case that the world of Linux distributions offers at least one compelling choice for virtually every taste and purpose, but -- much like those dissatisfied with the weather in New England -- users who don't see a distro they like need only wait a few minutes.
We've lost a few distros since 2013 began, but we've also gained some interesting fresh blood. "You win a few, you lose a few," as the old saying goes; fortunately, the overall pool of choices remains as rich and diverse as ever.
Mozilla, which makes Firefox OS for budget smartphones, announced seven new devices that will ship to emerging markets in 2014. Alcatel is building the Fire C, Fire E and Fire S along with a Fire 7 tablet. Huawei will be releasing the Y300 while ZTE has two new devices in the Open II and Open C. In addition, Mozilla announced the Firefox OS Flame, a reference phone for developers to tune their HTML5 Web apps to Mozilla’s range of devices.
Hello, I have a small lab consisting of the following: Win8, Kali, Mint, MAC OSX, Lubuntu, and a couple vms.
I am looking for the best virtual KVM option that works on all three OS. Anyone have a similar set up in their lab and if so what do you use. Thanks in advance.submitted by liberty71

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Mozilla announced the first formal reference smartphone for its Linux-based Firefox OS — the self-branded Firefox OS Flame phone — as well as the first developer tablets. The latter comprise an already tipped 7-inch Via “Vixen” tablet, and a 10-inch “InFocus” tablet from Foxconn.
If you've ever used Linux, you've most likely used OpenPGP without even realizing it. The open-source implementation of OpenPGP is called GnuPG (stands for "GNU Privacy Guard"), and nearly all distributions rely on GnuPG for package integrity verification. However, far fewer people have actually used GnuPG for what it was originally designed for -- secure exchange of information in an untrusted medium (such as the internet), and even fewer have a good understanding of how the trust relationships are supposed to work. In this mini series of articles, we'll take a look at what the web of trust is and how to use it to set up a secure and trusted communication.
Reddit: Cannot access tor .onion in linux but am successfully connected to tor network. Please help!
For one reason or another I cannot get by browser to connect to .onion sites when running tor. Yes I have tried the bundle and this is not an option for me in Kali Linux.
What I have done is install and run the tor service. Then run Vidalia. And connect my iceweasel through proxy. I can get to the tor check page and it says I am connected fine.
2nd I ran the tor service without vidialia and then then used 'proxychains iceweasel' command to connect to tor. Once again, Tor check says I am successfully connected to tor and my IP confirms this.
But I can still not connect to .onion /hidden service sites!!
Please help guys.. Been at this for 2 hours now and I'm about to throw my computer across the room!
Thank you so much to anyone that can help..submitted by x631
