Reddit: Could setting up be any more difficult?

Friday 25th of September 2015 07:11:56 AM

So yesterday i decided to install Linux on a partition of one of my spare SSHD's The installation of the Ubuntu OS went smoothly, but that was about it. Upon logging in I first tried to download steam, ok downloaded and installed... But wont open? Welp thats enough for tonight lets go back to windows and play a game...

NOPE! no bootloader and no way to enter windows... that was an easy fix though that after a few hours i spent googling why, I found out all i had to do was run terminal command:

sudo grub2-update

The following day i decide to get back to the steam issue. After some googling i find out "oh i might need to install the gpu drivers as stated in this online thread i found." Downloaded the .run file direct from nvidia but guess what? I CANT INSTALL IT WITHOUT A GPU DRIVER INSTALLED!

Why? Because to install it you need to log off and hit


to enter a shell and then you can cd your way to the directory and sudo sh install that file but the shell only shows a blank black screen when you don't have gpu drivers installed.

So upon using some terminal commands i get to installing the drivers from the repository only to have shit thrown at my face once again and now i am at this point where i cant login to ubuntu due to a login loop where my pc will ask for the password, i will enter the password, a few purple and black flashes happen and voila i am back at login screen.

LXer: Could Ubuntu 15.10 be the end of the road for boring upgrades?

Thursday 24th of September 2015 05:06:05 PM
You know the drill. Over the last couple of years, each major and minor Ubuntu upgrade has been, well, boring. There's been little to report on, save for the constant droning of "When will we finally see Unity 8?" In fact, I can't remember the last time Ubuntu had an exciting upgrade to roll out. That, in and of itself, says a lot about where we are as consumers and technologists. We live very much in a show me something exciting state. When a company or platform has nothing exciting to offer in an upgrade, the product loses its appeal.

LXer: Security wares like Kaspersky AV can make you more vulnerable to attacks

Wednesday 23rd of September 2015 11:56:47 PM
Antivirus applications and other security software are supposed to make users more secure, but a growing body of research shows that in some cases, they can open people to hacks they otherwise wouldn't be vulnerable to.

Reddit: btrfs is a bust. Should we standardize around bcachefs?

Wednesday 23rd of September 2015 11:54:56 PM

Btrfs cannot handle virtual machine or database loads on spindles and may have cpu spikes on ssds. This is extremely limiting.

Should we start to look toward bcachefs or some other filesystem to have the the performance of ZFS if we want an advanced native linux filesystem?

TuxMachines: Evolution of Apache Hadoop

Wednesday 23rd of September 2015 11:44:18 PM

The year 2016 will see Americans lining up to elect their new president. While passion and sentiments will dictate the outcome of the elections on the surface, deep down, modern technology will be at play, helping determine who will be the next president. These elections will harness the power of Big Data on a scale never done before. We have already seen the role that Big Data played in 2012 elections, and it’s only going to get bigger. This Big Data revolution is led by, as expected, open source and Apache Hadoop, in particular.

Wednesday 23rd of September 2015 11:19:27 PM

I have been helping folks break away from Windows and switch to either Linux Mint or Ubuntu for a while now and I’m going to share part of an email I got this morning with you.

Moto 360 (2015) Review: The Most Watch-Like Android Wear Device Yet

Motorola kicked off the age of Android Wear when it announced the original 360 more than six months before it was finally released.

The second generation device addresses many of the shortcomings of that wearable, but some of them are still staring you in the face. Still, it might be the watch you've been waiting for. Read more
