TuxMachines: Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon and MATE

Monday 1st of December 2014 10:32:42 AM

I was very impressed with Linux Mint 17.1. The common feature upgrades and bug fixes add real value to this distribution. The changes in Update Manager, the Login Screen, Language Settings, Kernel Menu, and artwork should please almost all Linux Mint users. And the huge range of background wallpapers, along with the slideshow feature make it a great choice for those who want frequent changes to the look of their Linux Mint systems.

LXer: What is a good free control panel for VPS

Monday 1st of December 2014 09:20:37 AM
Anyone with a reasonable level of Linux skills knows that no control panel can beat the plain-old command line interface for managing a virtual private server (VPS). One can still argue that there is a place for a good server control panel though, due to the streamlined interface for getting routine administration tasks done easily […]Continue reading...The post What is a good free control panel for VPS appeared first on Xmodulo.No related FAQ.

The vivid difference of opinion over Debian's future direction has ended with a new fork of the Linux distribution. The dispute centred on plans to replace the sysvinit init system management toolkit with systemd, a similar but less-Linux-specific set of tools.

TuxMachines: Fedora 21 vs. Ubuntu 14.10 Performance Benchmarks

Monday 1st of December 2014 03:50:24 AM

With the official Fedora 21 release due out soon and the release candidate being available this weekend, I ran some basic performance benchmarks comparing the speed of Fedora 21 64-bit to that of Ubuntu 14.10 on an Intel Xeon workstation.

Fedora 21 Workstation was compared to Ubuntu 14.10 using the x86_64 version of each and maintaining the default settings. Fedora 21 is shipping with the Linux 3.17 kernel, GNOME Shell 3.14.2, X.Org Server 1.16.2, Mesa 10.3.3, and GCC 4.9.2. The package versions this time around aren't too far off from the Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn release from back in November with the main change being the use of the Linux 3.16 kernel.

TuxMachines: Linux 3.18-rc7

Monday 1st of December 2014 03:48:01 AM

Things are calming down nicely, and everything looks pretty normal.
In fact, if it wasn't for the pending issues with odd watchdog (and
possibly rcu) lockups I'd be pretty happy. As it is, that isn't a
regression from 3.17, but is still very disturbing.

At the same time, with the holidays coming up, and the problem _not_
being a regression, I suspect that what will happen is that I'll
release 3.18 on time in a week, because delaying it will either mess
up the merge window and the holiday season, or I'd have to delay it a
*lot*.

We'll see. Maybe DaveJ will be able to bisect it a bit now that the
false lead of "3.17 was ok" has been shown to be wrong (right now it
looks like the problem seems to have crept in between 3.16 and 3.17).

Annoying, because as mentioned, other than that we seem to be doing
well. The rc7 patch looks very normal, with two thirds being drivers
(spread all over: usb, networking, staging, thermal, gpu, sound..) and
half of the remaining being arch updates (mostly mips, arm, powerpc).
The remaining is mainly networking and some filesystem fixes (nfsd and
btrfs).

Reddit: Im building an HTPC, I am looking for some good software and deas.

Monday 1st of December 2014 02:31:37 AM

I am making an HTPC, I am using a ful desktop for a few reasons; I want to be able to stream games from a windows enabled PC if i want, I am more comfortable with a full desktop(But i want an easy way to use it to stream music and videos.). I am just wondering What software is best for this?

Are there any applications that i can open when i just want to use it like a tv?(more of a traditional carousel type app selector.. for lack of better words)

Are there any other uses for this (what im going to call) server, that arent going to take up to much resources? (Should i try to make a DNS server for the home? Is there a way to make it serve a page like hotels, where when you get on the network, you sign in through a web page? any other cool networking ideas?)

Why You Should Switch to Ubuntu MATE Edition

When I first came to Linux, I gravitated to KDE and then later on, early GNOME. Back then, these desktop environments were designed mostly to provide a usable X environment from which to use Linux compatible applications. Today, however, our need for a desktop environment is more varied. Some individuals prefer to have a desktop experience that is rich, full of nice effects and looks great. Others still, prefer a desktop experience that provides a simple, hassle free interface. My own desktop needs, reflecting on the ideas above, have also evolved. I went from wanting a fancy, slick GUI desktop over to leaning with a lighter weight desktop. XFCE started off as my go-to lightweight desktop preference, while keeping Gnome 3 around on another machine because it was fun to use. After a lot of recent thought and reflection, I have decided to commit full time to a "no frills" desktop environment. My desktop of choice: MATE on Ubuntu. Read more

The 5 Best Linux Stories of 2014

Two Thousand and Fourteen was an exciting, tumultuous and rather funky year for Linux. Great consumer news, forks, death threats, hardware delays and... something truly unthinkable just a few years ago. Truth be told I'm still trying to wrap my head around, what feels like, the zaniest year of Linux shenanigans I have ever seen. Here are the 5 stories that, I feel, best sum up what happened with Linux (and the related Open Source world) in 2014. Read more

How To Install Puppy Linux Tahr On A USB Drive

Puppy Linux is a lightweight Linux distribution designed to run from removable devices such as DVDs and USB drives. There are a number of Puppy Linux variants including Puppy Slacko, which utilises the Slackware repositories, and Puppy Tahr which utilises the Ubuntu repositories. Other versions of Puppy Linux include Simplicity and MacPUP. It is possible to use UNetbootin to create a bootable Puppy Linux USB drive but it isn't the method that is recommended. Puppy Linux works great on older laptops, netbooks and computers without hard drives. It isn't designed to be installed on a hard drive but you can run it that way if you want to. Read more
