Reddit: Has anyone else had issues installing Linux on a Eluktronics laptop?

Wednesday 12th of April 2017 04:18:09 AM

I got one of these because their specs seem to be that of far more powerful systems at the fraction of the price, and because I'm uncomfortable opening up laptops and replacing hardware.

I started trying to install my distro of choice, Elementary, which booted, went to the logo screen, and then appeared to have hung.

I tried the old standby Ubuntu, which started to load, then went to a black screen, then went back and forth between a black screen and the logo screen. I tried hitting ESC to see what it was doing, but it had no effect.

I can't even get puppy to boot.

I feel like I just spent $1200 on a fucking brick.

TuxMachines: APT Package Manager With Some Basic Commands

Wednesday 12th of April 2017 01:59:32 AM

Hey..! So finally installed Linux Mint or Ubuntu on your system? Cool! But wait there’s more to be done than already done. What about software installation, uninstallation, managing files and so on. Well installing software on Linux Mint and Ubuntu is simple (or basic A for Apple, B for Ball, and C for Cat). Why? You would ask me and the answer is because of the way Debian manages software dependency files. Luckily, Mint and Ubuntu are Debian-based distros and that puts you in a good place to learn apt (which is the short form for Advanced Package Tool).

Reddit: How tiny can Linux get?

Wednesday 12th of April 2017 12:49:06 AM

Right, hopefully this'll be an interesting one!

I'm looking for a tiny Linux OS, and specifically one to be installed, not one to run from a USB drive. How small? It needs to fit on a 1GB SSD! Apart from that fairly adequate specs, 1GHz Sempron and 1GB RAM. My only requirement from a distro is that it has a GUI. Any input will be gratefully received!

TuxMachines: Open hacker board takes aim at Raspberry Pi 3

Wednesday 12th of April 2017 12:48:02 AM

The $30 Orange Pi Prime combines a quad Cortex-A53 Allwinner H5 SoC with 2GB RAM, wireless, MIPI-CSI, GbE, and a 40-pin expansion header.

Another Orange Pi has shaken loose from Shenzhen Xunlong’s highly productive Orange Pi tree in the form of an Orange Pi Prime that matches up nicely with the Raspberry Pi 3. There were already a half dozen distinct Orange Pi models by our year-end Linux hacker SBC roundup, and in only about three months, that tally has almost doubled if you include every new variant. Within a few years, the company’s engineers will no doubt have tested out every possible combination of size, RAM, I/O, and hacker board layout possible with an Allwinner processor.

Distributions News: Ubuntu, Manjaro, and Lakka

  • Ubuntu founder retakes the CEO throne, many employees gone
    Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonincal has once again returned to his positition of CEO, as Jane Silber, the previous CEO now heads to the Board of Directors; and big changes happen to the staff lineup as a result. In a blog bost by Sibler, she says, “I originally agreed to be CEO for 5 years and we’ve extended my tenure as CEO by a couple of years already. We’ve been preparing for a transition for some time by strengthening the executive leadership team and maturing every aspect of the company, and earlier this year Mark and I decided that now is the time to effect this transition.”
  • [Video] Manjaro 17.0 KDE Edition - See What’s New
    Manjaro 17.0 KDE is the latest release of Manjaro Linux. This release brings new KDE Plasma 5.9.x as desktop environment include the most of KDE applications 16.12 and KDE Frameworks 5.32.
  • Make your own NES Classic Edition with Lakka 2.0 LibreELEC Linux distro and Raspberry Pi
    The NES Classic Edition is a very fun nostalgia-based gaming console. As someone who grew up with Nintendo, I knew I wanted the mini system as soon as it was announced. A family member was able to score me one on launch day, and I've been very happy with it. Unfortunately, other people have not been so lucky. Supply was very limited and it has since been discontinued. If you do not already have it, you are sort of out of luck without paying high prices on eBay or Craigslist. If you are only looking to replay the NES games of your youth, and you are OK with doing it in an unofficial way, emulation is another route. In fact, if you'd rather not play these games on your PC, you can instead use a Linux-based operating system and a Raspberry Pi (or other devices) hooked to a television. One such distro is Lakka, which just reached version 2.0. It is arguably better than an NES Classic Edition as it can also play games from other systems, such as SNES, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, PlayStation 1, and many more.

Linux Mint's Plans

  • Some Of The Features Coming To Linux Mint's Cinnamon 3.4 Desktop
    In the latest monthly progress report on Linux Mint, some of the upcoming changes for the GNOME3-forked Cinnamon Desktop Environment were shared.
  • Monthly News – April 2017
    Many thanks to all the people who donated to us and who help to fund our project. Donations are down to about 60% of what they were last year, but they’re still quite high. In the first trimesters of 2015, 2016 and 2017 we respectively received $23k, $40k and $25k. Our development team has gotten bigger and our budget is being extended to include some administrators and designers. Other figures and metrics indicate we’re growing so this probably just reflects an exceptional year for donations in 2016.
  • Linux Mint Is Adopting LightDM as its Login Manager
    Linux Mint is adopting the LightDM display manager to handle and authenticate user sessions. Revealing plans in its latest monthly update, Mint says it will formally drop the MDM Display Manager (MDM) in favour of LightDM with Mint 18.2, release date for which is as-yet unknown. The popular Ubuntu-based Linux distribution mooted a possible switch earlier this year, noting that it had a key feature MDM lacks (guest sessions), and has become something of a standard across distributions.
  • Linux Mint 13 support ends, LMDE to get MATE 1.18 soon, big changes heading to Cinnamon
    The news from the Linux Mint team was quite interesting this week. First up, Linux Mint 13 has officially hit EOL (end of life), so you really do need to upgrade. LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is set to get the MATE desktop version 1.18 "this week" and they have ported mintMenu over to GTK3, since the rest of MATE is now using GTK3 too it makes sense.
