Reddit: Can linux output to another device as an extra display?

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 04:08:42 AM

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?

Reddit: 2 quick question, I think.

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 04:05:54 AM

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?

Reddit: Ubuntu is messed up bad. Need help, asap.

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 03:14:01 AM

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.

LXer: Low-cost COM/baseboard combo taps power-sipping -A5 SoC

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 02:35:07 AM
MYIR’s SODIMM-style, 200-pin MYC-JA5D2X module has the same 67.6 x 45mm dimensions as its MYC-JA5D4X computer-on-module, and similarly runs Linux on an Cortex-A5 based Atmel SAMA5 SoC. Instead of tapping the SAMA5D42 or SAMA5D44, however, the MYC-JA5D2X moves to the newer, more power efficient SAMA5D2.

Reddit: Rite of Passage? My first step into linux

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 02:01:10 AM

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!

Reddit: What software made you think, "wow, how come I didn't know about this sooner?"

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 12:56:08 AM

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.

  • A Snapshot of Linux Gamers, Just One Year Ago
    It’s about time we share the analysis of that Q1 2016 survey (fielding occured in March last year), especially as we are about to launch the Q1 2017 one pretty, pretty soon. That way we will be able to compare how things have changed over the course of 12 months. As usual, the whole disclaimer about online surveys is valid here (data is only as good as your n size, the appropriateness of your sampling, and the quality of the responses, etc…), but assuming it’s not all that bad and all that unreliable, let’s dig in the results. As a reminder, most of the respondents for this survey were recruited through the r/linux and r/linux_gaming subreddits, as well as the readership of BoilingSteam. This is not our first survey, and you can see our previous ones done in the second quarter of 2015, and the following one in the last quarter of 2015.

  • CodeWeavers Announces CrossOver 16.2.0
  • The Wine Revolution is ON!
    As you know Codeweavers (and other WINE contributors) have been working on DX11 support for a while – they were supposed to have DX11 support by the end of 2016, but as with all complex projects, timelines tend to slip and only very DX11 titles could run a few months ago. Since then, there was no major announcement, but it seems that the progress has been very significant in the recent WINE versions (2.3 is already out).
