I've had to wipe my OS multiple times because the driver starts getting buggy after a bit. I get these XOrg errors, and one time on Ubuntu the Unity just disappeared.
Gahhhhhh. I don't want to switch back to Windows. I really enjoy navigating the CLI and I love linux. But this driver is driving me insane.
I have an 860M w/ optimus for my Linux Ubuntu 14.04 laptop.
I've been using sudo apt-get install nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 nvidia-prime to get my driver to work (and it does work) but then it gets buggy after awhile.
Has anyone had any luck?submitted by song_of_stormz

The Debian Linux kernel team has discussed and chosen the kernel version to use as a basis for Debian 8 'jessie'.
This will be Linux 3.16, due to be released in early August. Release candidates for Linux 3.16 are already packaged and available in the experimental suite.
If you maintain a package that is closely bound to the kernel version - a kernel module or a userland application that depends on an unstable API - please ensure that it is compatible with Linux 3.16 prior to the freeze date (5th November, 2014). Incompatible packages are very likely to be removed from testing and not included in 'jessie'.
Magellan unveiled an Android-based navigation tablet for RVs with a 7-inch, 800 x 480 touchscreen, WiFi and Bluetooth, and real-time traffic updates.
The RoadMate RV9490T-LMB appears to be Magellan’s first Android-based automotive GPS, and it’s specifically aimed at recreational vehicle owners. Magellan still uses Windows Mobile in many of its navigation devices.
That is where my time with Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" MATE ended. I'm slightly disappointed to see the dependency issue crop up with M64Py, considering that the issue seems exclusive to Ubuntu and its derivatives; I'm just as disappointed to see Mupen64Plus not work even in its CLI form despite the absence of any indication of what the problem actually is. These issues of course may well be more the fault of those programs than of this distribution, but I can't deny that the experience was very slightly marred. Those are more personal opinions, though, and I still think that otherwise overall, Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" MATE continues to deliver a solid and reliable experience that is suitable for total newbies to Linux.

(I'm sorry if this is the wrong subreddit for this type of problem. I will delete if it is wrong) So, I bought a cheap laptop to mess around on. I decided to install Elementary OS on it. I turned it into a bootable USB drive. I install Elementary OS, no problem and then restart. Here is where the trouble started. Nothing boots. I get the "Please insert bootable drive". I went into BIOS and checked the make sure HDD was number one on the boot list. It is. If I plug the USB stick back into the computer, I can boot into GRUB and even reinstall Elementary OS. But if I try to install EOS over EOS I get the message "The grub-efi" package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot." Once it shuts down, it will not boot into it. I know that it is on the HDD because in the EOS install screen it shows HDD space being used. Honestly, I have no idea what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankssubmitted by abryant0462

I'm hoping to get some ideas for a realistic Linux hacking war-game, to be run on cheap VPS's between myself and a few mates.
I've had a few ideas for rules (Working on a honor system) like so:
- No firewalls
- Minimum software requirements (Forums/Mysql/apache/named ETC)
- Must be at least one way to gain root - simple to begin with
I'm looking for further idea's/rules that could make this a meaningful exercise.
Have at it :)
