LXer: Top 5: Linux on a Chromebook, building DNS servers, VoIP on Raspberry Pi, and more

Monday 17th of April 2017 02:30:35 AM
In this week's Top 5, we highlight putting Linux on a Chromebook, building your own DNS name servers, creating a VoIP (voice over IP) solution on a Raspberry Pi, comparing Python and Ruby for web development, and the top five programming languages for DevOps.

Reddit: Run this command and post the result

Monday 17th of April 2017 02:07:46 AM

history | awk '{CMD[$2]++;count++;}END { for (a in CMD)print CMD[a] " " CMD[a]/count*100 "% " a;}' | grep -v "./" | column -c3 -s " " -t | sort -nr | nl | head -n10

or if you're using zsh:

history 1 | awk '{CMD[$2]++;count++;}END { for (a in CMD)print CMD[a] " " CMD[a]/count*100 "% " a;}' | grep -v "./" | column -c3 -s " " -t | sort -nr | nl | head -n10

I thought that it would be cool to see how differently use the shell. Maybe we'll all learn some new tricks :)

Reddit: Manjaro touchpad options greyed out.

Sunday 16th of April 2017 11:27:17 PM

I just install Manjaro KDE and the opions to tweak the touchpad sensetivity, scroll, etc. are all greyed out. Mouse-click point emulation is enabled. Turning it off or on has no effect. The packages xf86-input-libinput and libinput are installed.

Reddit: Disappointed....

Sunday 16th of April 2017 11:14:13 PM

Switching from Windows 10 to Linux was going to be my stand of defiance. Now, I am immensely regretting my rash decision. It seems you trade privacy for ease-of-use. Anyway, getting to the issue I need some help with: My CPU NEVER runs at its max frequency and I've found this is probably due to the frequency governor that is inherent in my Linux Mint 18 OS. Despite the 50+ google threads I've followed on how to enable performance mode in order to get the max frequency from my processor...I cannot. There seems to be no straight forward answer and I might honestly just remain with Windows 10 and deal with the fact that I'm being spied on in order to get the full performance of my machine. (Why don't I just use on demand over performance and save myself the stress? Because it's horrifically slow to respond to loads on Windows or Linux and my workflow demands response.) Any help would be greatly appreciated as Google Fu turns up many threads that do not seem to work on Linux Mint 18. Something that W10 and lower could do in a single click...change from on demand (balanced) to performance mode is something that seems to takes a damn computer science major on Linux. Maybe I'm wrong, again, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Reddit: Elementary OS on Surface Book, black screen after waking from sleep

Sunday 16th of April 2017 10:21:13 PM

I've just installed Elementary OS on my Surface Book, and anytime I put it to sleep then wake it up, the keyboard lights up, but the screen stays black and I have to restart my device in order for it to work again. I've tried a few things I've found online but so far nothing has worked. Anyone have any fix?

TuxMachines: Graphics in Linux

Sunday 16th of April 2017 09:09:53 PM
  • Trying AMDGPU-PRO 17.10 On Ubuntu 17.04

    In early April AMD released the AMDGPU-PRO 17.10 driver as their first hybrid proprietary driver update in some time. With this update came support for Ubuntu 16.04.2 (and also 16.10, unofficially) but to little surprise it doesn't work out-of-the-box with this week's Ubuntu 17.04 release. But it can be made to work.

  • RadeonSI Polaris: Mesa 12.0 vs. 13.0 vs. 17.0 vs. 17.1 Git

    With Mesa 17.1 branching this weekend I figured it would be a fun Easter running benchmarks of Mesa Git compared to previous branches with a Radeon RX 470 Polaris graphics card. Here are these Mesa 17.1 benchmarks while other tests and on more GPUs is forthcoming.

  • Comprehend X86 Assembly Language with Open Source Books

    An assembly language is a low-level programming language for a computer, or other programmable device. Assembly language is used by almost all modern desktop and laptop computers. It is as close to writing machine code without writing in pure hexadecimal. It is converted into executable machine code by a utility program referred to as an assembler.

  • Xfce Session Manager 4.13 Released, Ported To GTK3

    An updated version of the Xfce4 session manager was released this Easter weekend.

  • Relm: A GTK-Based GUI Library In Rust For Async GUI Apps

    With there being many Rustlang fans reading Phoronix, many of you will probably be interested in Relm: a new GUI library for Rust.

    Relm is a new crate/library for developing asynchronous GUI applications in Rust. Using GTK up to now in Rust looks rather messy, but Relm aims to change that and also make the applications more responsive by making the user-interface asynchronous and makes use of the language's futures capability.

TuxMachines: Linux 4.11-rc7

Sunday 16th of April 2017 09:06:25 PM
  • Linux 4.11-rc7

    You all know the drill by now. We're in the late rc phase, and this
    may be the last rc if nothing surprising happens.

    Things have been pretty calm this past week (the beginning of the week
    seemed particularly calm, and then as usual Friday happened..). We
    have a number of reverts for things that didn't work out and aren't
    worth trying to fix at this point, that's also normal (and people will
    look at it for the next version instead).

    So not too big, and things look very normal with two thirds of the
    changes being to drivers, and the rest being a mixture of arch updates
    (arm, x86, ia64, parisc), networking and filesystems (btrfs, cifs,
    orangefs). With a smattering of other stuff (tooling, header files,
    core kernel).

  • Linux 4.11-rc7 Kernel Released: Final Might Come Next Week

    Linus Torvalds has announced the seventh weekly test build of the upcoming Linux 4.11 kernel.

TuxMachines: Freedom Doesn’t Have to Be Free: Revenue and Open Source

Sunday 16th of April 2017 08:53:43 PM

In 1983, Richard Stallman kicked off the free software movement with the launch of the GNU Project. From that point onwards, free software was commonly associated with being free in the monetary sense as well.

Most all open source projects, especially those in the world of Linux are available free of charge. And while this is very nice in itself, it can result in developers not being able to fully commit to their projects.

In turn fantastic open source projects going nowhere in development when the lives of the maintainers catch up to them. But there is another way to go about open source!

TuxMachines: Could A New Linux Base For Tablets/Smartphones Succeed In 2017?

Sunday 16th of April 2017 08:48:13 PM

Over the years we have seen many mobile/smartphone focused Linux efforts come and go from OpenMoko, Moblin/MeeGo, webOS, Firefox OS, and most recently Ubuntu Touch while others like Sailfish OS and Plasma Mobile appear to be somewhat stagnate or at least not gaining much marketshare nor advancing rapidly. But what if more of these mobile Linux efforts were to collaborate on a common base? There's a new effort being worked on in this area.

A Phoronix reader involved with this new project codenamed HALIUM shared with us some early details on the work. This open-source project is trying to pool resources and developers from UBports (one of the groups forking Unity 8), Sailfish OS community developers, the open webOS Lune OS project, and KDE Plasma Mobile contributors, among other developers.
