I want to host multiple sites on same server. Each user will have their own ssh keys and stuffs. Also, I want to allocate specific storage space to each user's home directory. Also, is there anyway to achieve bandwidth control option. Most of the application will be php based. Any resources should I read or any related links will be helpful.submitted by /u/procipher
Say I have another monitor and a raspberry pi. Is there some combination of software that can be used to output my display to the raspberry pi?
I use i3 and I use xrandr to output to a wired external monitor. Then I can scroll between the two and use the other monitor as an extended desktop. Is it possible to set up a raspberry pi so that xorg and i3 see it as just another display?submitted by /u/5methoxy
1- Is it worth it to put Linux onto a computer as a operating system? I just bought a Lenovo P50 and it came with windows 10 and I have other computers so I was thinking about putting a linux disto on it and use windows in VM.
2- Is this good for pentesting?

So to start off, I downloaded Ubuntu about a year ago. I have a small cheap HP laptop that isn't very powerful, and I wanted an OS that wasn't so slow like Windows 8. I decided to install Ubuntu, as I had friend who had recently downloaded it, and only had good things to say about. So, I made a USB stick/start thing, booted it up, and made Ubuntu my new OS. All was well for about a week, and then things fell apart. My screen would just glow, and then go black when I booted. I have to press F5 to even get it to wake up. None of my toolbars display on my desktop. To get into Firefox, I have to right click one of the images saved to my desktop, and click "open in Mozilla Firefox". Another problem is that none of my open windows display a Close/Shrink/Minimize bar, so if I open a window, it just stays open. My terminal will also not open at all, so I’m not able to even try any of the suggested fixes I’ve read. I'm just wondering if there is way to wipe Ubuntu clean and start fresh, or if there is a simple way to download a simpler OS like Linux Mint. Any help or feedback is appreciated.submitted by /u/kooldude2878
CEO and founder of Dell, Michael Dell, has long been a Linux supporter. By 2007, under his guidance, Dell became the first major OEM to offer a laptop with pre-installed Linux. His Linux of choice? Ubuntu Linux. Ten years later, Dell is still selling Ubuntu Linux-powered laptops.
- VMware Becomes Linux Foundation Gold Member, Pledging Increased Support for Open Source Development
VMware affirms its open source commitment by becoming Gold Linux Foundation member
Linux and other open source projects are changing the world. If you don't believe it, just think of Android -- the most used mobile operating system is a Linux distro. Not to mention, many consumer products license open source code. Heck, even major companies like Microsoft and Apple are embracing open source nowadays.
Today, VMware shows its commitment to the open source community by becoming a Linux Foundation Gold Member. The company joins many other successful companies at that level, such as Facebook, Toshiba, and Toyota, to name a few.
Red Hat expert: OpenStack May Not Be As Complex As You Think
OpenStack is perhaps best known for its complexity. It’s not a single open source project but a framework meant to contain several projects with the different pieces able to work together. Different teams are working, each at their own pace, on each subsystem.
There's Cinder for block storage and Swift for object storage, Quantum for networking and Nova for compute. There's also Keystone for identity management and Glance for system image management, along with Horizon for dashboard monitoring information.

Why Android 2.0 won't save the smartwatch
Over the past few months, there has been a discussion among tech gurus about whether the smartwatch, so hyped a few years ago, is doomed. Optimists can point to the success of the Apple Watch, which dominated the smartwatch market in the 2016 4Q as it accounted for half of smartwatch sales and over 75 percent of revenue. Pessimists can point to the fall of smartwatch startup Pebble, Fitbit, and other manufacturers’ ongoing struggles, and observe that many people still are uncertain about what a smartwatch is for.
The future of the smartwatch may be up for debate. But the Android Wear 2.0 software, which was supposed to be a big competitor against the Apple Watch, is not going to move the needle one way or the other. Android Wear 2.0 is an improvement compared to its previous version, but it is not enough and there are problems with the two watches it will be on. The smartwatch is going to live and die not on Android, but on Apple as well as its competitors’ ability to distinguish itself by going into specific niches.
Turkey Is Latest to Investigate Google's Android Bundling Requirements
The focus of the investigation is on whether the practice unfairly prevents other developers from getting their apps on Android handsets.
The government in Turkey has become the latest to open an investigation into Google’s business practices.
The Turkish Competition Authority on Monday said it will examine whether Google’s application bundling requirements for Android handset makers are consistent with the country’s fair competition rules.
Another painful reminder of Android’s most infuriating problem
That’s right, it’ll be two years before the majority of Android phones gain access to some version of Android 7, and by then Android 9 will have been released. According to Google’s own data, the most common version of Android right now is Android Lollipop, which was first released two years ago back in 2014. Meanwhile, the six-month-old Android Nougat is currently installed on a whopping 1.2% of active Android devices.

I have broken my first linux device within hours of booting it up. Running Raspian lite (CLI only) on a humble little pi 2b. This isn't a troubleshooting help question, that isn't my reason for posting. Even though i broke it to hell i am just actually excited to keep playing with it until i get a better handle on the system.
For the curious, i am pretty certain i screwed my sudoers file into oblivion when trying to get my user account sudo privelages. I used the visudo command to get in and edit it and it is adamantly denying any sudo commands pitched at it from all accounts. No big deal. Gunna spend some time trying to fix it if not burn it and start over.
This isn't a story of defeat. Just my first bold step into the unknown. Carry on!submitted by /u/QuillVance
I keep finding new things that make me think that. Lately I've been playing with M4. I was wanting a way to use C-style macros in other languages and even tried implementing it native to whatever language I was using. M4 already does what I wanted, and does it well.
I found that it's also useful for standard text processing a la sed, tr, awk etc.. You can do stuff like set a macro name to a single character and replace it with whatever text you want, evaluate math expressions inside it, save your settings to scripts, and a lot more. The learning curve has not been steep either.
I feel like there's probably a lot of stuff I'm missing out on that will make my life a lot easier.submitted by /u/cbbuntz
