Posted this in r/leagueoflegends and all I got was a question about why I don't just switch to Windows. So trying here . . .
Hey folks, I realize that linux is not officially supported. So let's skip over that.
I want to play League on my linux box.
I know nothing about Wine. I've never used it and have no idea how to configure it.
I'm trying to get League working on my Arch box because I'm tired of rebooting into Windows on a daily basis only to play League.
While I know a few things about computers, I'm not in any way an expert. I can, however, follow well-written technical instructions (managed to get Arch installed following the Wiki, for example).
I have been looking around for a good instruction set for setting up Wine and installing League and making it work. Everything I've found is either out of date or well, wrong.
Is there anyone out there who can walk me through getting League working on my Linux box?
I don't' care if I'm doing it in Wine or using something like VMWare to play it off of my already working windows partition (if that's possible). But again, I know nothing about emulators or virtual machines and just need some quality instructions to make this work so I don't have to reboot every day.

I consult for a few companies, and when they need to get rid of computers, I usually take them, wipe them, and donate them to Goodwill. Lately, I have been installing Linux on the computers before donating, hoping that the next owner will somehow end up with the OS I install. I know this is a bit silly, but I want to know what reddit thinks about which distro/apps I should install.submitted by jcluthe

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, tried the search function but found nothing that addressed exactly what I was looking for.
I've an old laptop, running XP, 512ram and 2ghz processor. I was thinking of installing Linux on this machine, for generally educating myself and so it is safer as support ends for XP.
My problem is, I have no idea where to start/how to go about doing this. Any advice guys and gals?submitted by TCamilo19

Using open source software solutions is helping a Welsh pilot project to manage flood risks and provide a stepping stone for future research. The Citizen Observatory Web (Cobweb) project involves citizens using their smartphone or tablets, to submit data observations within the Dyfi area in Wales, to help collect environmental data for use in evidence based policy.
NVIDIA has today released ther 331.89 Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD graphics drivers within their long-lived 331.xx graphics driver branch.
The NVIDIA 331.89 graphics driver for Linux (and Solaris/FreeBSD) includes support for the GeForce GT 730 graphics card, support for X.Org Server 1.16, and a variety of bug-fixes. The bug-fixes are great and the GeForce GT 730 hardware enablement is also great while nearly all NVIDIA 331 graphics driver users will be able to appreciate the X.Org Server 1.16 support considering the xorg-server update isn't even scheduled to be released until next month, will make it into the H2'2014 Linux distribution updates, and chances are the AMD Catalyst driver won't even support the new server for some months based upon their historical turnaround times.
The KDE Community introduced the concept of convergence way back in 2008 with the arrival of KDE 4.x (back then it was still KDE Desktop). If you ever tried KDE on your netbook you would have noticed that the desktop that got installed was different from that you would get when you install the same iso on your desktop.
Following the approval of the Simple Patch policy, all the necessary pieces are now in place.
