There are tools that notify users when problems occur as well as when problems have been solved. And others are very good at spotting just about anything out of the ordinary or providing analysis of trends.
Reddit: non guru blog site where copy-pasting to get something to just work without full understanding isn't a bad thing
I'm documenting the horrible procedure (to me) of building the targetcli package from sources on Centos 7 which I really don't like so far (coming from Ubuntu)
Using Centos because QLogic Linux packages are stupidly only released for RHEL.
Anyway...So I will put it on my blog site when I have time (I say my site but it doesn't exist yet) which is really only for me to reference, but if anyone else finds it useful then so be it.
On many other blogs with bash commands the writers precede the commands with the $ to indicate - $ <bash command>
I figured I wasn't going to do this on mine as that will break copying and pasting a list of commands to achieve some desired outcome...which for me will just be for reference to achieve that same outcome on some other system.
Now the best blogs explain what each command in a listing does and have some nice font formatting to boot, but I don't mind a bit of copy pasting (great to use the &&) without full understanding, especially when I'm trying to quickly achieve something in testing in some virtual environment that can easily be restored from a snapshot if said commands make things go tits up.
Probably guess I'm fairly new to Linux ('bout 4 yrs...mostly loving the XP so far), so I wanted to ask more experienced hands how best to present written out bash commands.

I try to find a solution to use a smartcard or sdcard for system encryption instead of a typed password. The motivation is that i do not want to remember a real strong password. I searched the web, but can not find a solution to do it in Linux. Has anyone an idea what to search for or know any tutorials, anything?
Thank you in advance!submitted by Rootix

Sadly there's nothing new to report on the awaited AMDGPU kernel driver for supporting the R9 285 Tonga and newer GPUs that's needed for the new AMD unified Linux driver approach. Due to the change last year in how DRM-Next is handled, there's just one or two weeks left before the 3.20 DRM merge window will close. The AMDGPU driver would also have to go through public review by upstream developers outside of AMD, which already would make this new driver more like a Linux 3.21 (or later) feature. At least for 3.20 there's other changes worth getting excited over.
Open source software has morphed from its underground DIY roots to become a common tool that runs essential parts of many businesses. In turn, commercial companies have sprung up around open source projects. These companies make money offering updates, support, and services.
The intersection of open source and commercial interests raises questions about authority, authenticity, and culture.
Is the project driven by the commercial sponsor or outside contributors? Will commercial interests trump the wishes of the community? How and where do you draw lines between a commercial entity and the open source community?
The Enterprisers Project: In this interview, Red Hat CIO Lee Congdon discusses the role he sees for openness and collaboration in the innovation process.
The Linux Foundation original video, "How Linux Was Built," reached a huge milestone in 2014, surpassing 1 million views on YouTube. The video, one of the ten most popular on the Linux Foundation YouTube channel last year, illustrates how thousands of software developers from all over the world contribute collectively to the Linux kernel codebase. It's the kind of video you can show to your parents and friends that will help them understand what makes Linux such an amazing software project. And its popularity also illustrates just how mainstream Linux and open source software have become.
