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.submitted by /u/insideofus
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).
Telegram is a messenger designed to overcome the limitations of other messengers like WhatsApp or similar ones. It is different and better than other messengers on more than one level. A few of the important features that make it stand out among other messengers are:
Canonical's Michael Vogt is pleased to announce today, April 11, 2017, the release and immediate availability for download of the Snapd 2.24 Snappy daemon for Ubuntu Linux and other supported GNU/Linux distributions.
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!submitted by /u/danthetucker
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.
GNOME Project's Florian Müllner announced today, April 11, 2017, the release and immediate availability for download of the first maintenance updates for the GNOME Shell and Mutter components of the GNOME 3.24 desktop environment.
The developers of the independently developed KaOS GNU/Linux distribution were proud to announce today the release and general availability of the KaOS 2017.04 ISO snapshot for the month of April 2017.
