LXer: Debian, Ubuntu Touch & More…

Saturday 29th of November 2014 06:20:00 AM
While we in the States were dealing with family and turkey, the EU was busy working on preparing Google’s head for the platter. The European Parliament yesterday passed by a wide margin a non-binding resolution urging anti-trust regulators to break up the company. For those keeping score, the final vote was 384 yeas and 174 nays.

Reddit: files copied from vfat usb

Saturday 29th of November 2014 06:10:23 AM

I copied from a vfat usb, I can no longer modify permissions/ownership of the files, and it's hell to try and open them in applications. Is there anything I can do to restore the acl's? (To be clear, I'm not trying to modify the files on the usb, rather the one's on my hard drive. I know that vfat doesn't allow for file's permissions/ownership to be modified.)

Reddit: Linux From Scratch. Which iso to download and which documentation version to read? The site is unclear.

Saturday 29th of November 2014 03:25:43 AM

Hello all.

The LFS subreddit has no activity at all and that is why I am posting here.

I want to start LFS. I downloaded the .ISO that is setup appropriately to build LFS. However it is not. The Kernel version is 2.6.22 instead of 2.6.32 and the "xz" package is not installed. These requirements are explained in their documentation

The version of ISO I downloaded and the only one I could find was version 6.3. However, the documentation is version 7.6.

What is going on? Can somebody give me a link with the appropriate ISO?

Thank you.

TuxMachines: Make Your Mark on the World With Linux

Saturday 29th of November 2014 02:31:30 AM

Linux and FOSS have already changed the world, and we're just at the beginning. This is a great time to learn to be a maker, in contrast to being a mere consumer. Clicking buttons on a smartphone is not being tech-savvy; hacking and building the phone is.

Some people give Make Magazine the credit for launching the Maker Movement. Whether they launched it or just gave it a name, it is a real phenomenon, a natural evolution of do-it-yourselfers, inventors, and hackers in every generation. Remember Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Hands-On (for Shopsmith projects), photography magazines, woodworking magazines, electronics...remember Heathkit? Remember when Radio Shack was still an electronics store? How about Edmund Scientific? That is still a wonderful playground of anatomical models, microscopes, telescopes, dinosaurs, prisms, lenses, chemistry sets, lasers, geology stuff, and tons more. All of these still exist, and have moved online like everything else. It's a feast of riches, plus we have all the cool new stuff that Make Magazine covers. This is absolutely the best time to be a curious tech adventurer.

Phoronix: Devuan: Debian Without Systemd

Saturday 29th of November 2014 01:16:06 AM
Last month we wrote about a group of administrations planning to fork Debian GNU/Linux over not liking its direction due to adopting systemd over Upstart or SysVInit. The Debian administrators have made good on their word and announced the Devuan fork of Debian...

LXer: Devuan, DevOne. Here comes a fork of Debian

Saturday 29th of November 2014 12:36:54 AM
Ha, from ongoing discussions surrounding Systemd/Init in Debian, anybody could have predicted this was going to happen sooner or later. Well, it has happened. A fork of Debian has been announced by the “Veteran Unix Admin collective.”

The Machine with Open Source Carbon OS is the Next Big Thing – if HP can deliver

HP has recently been facing some serious difficulties and has opted to betting all its resources on the new PC called ‘The Machine’. Probably the most intriguing thing about the machine is that it will rewrite basic computing on a very fundamental level. While the topic has been covered extensively, I realized we haven’t actually touched it here and thought it was about time. Read more

YEAR of the PENGUIN: A Linux mobile in 2015?

It's nearly impossible to sum up an entire year of developments in something as large and nebulous as the world of desktop Linux, especially in a year like this one which has seen some the best releases that projects like Mint, Fedora and openSUSE have put out to date. At the same time the distro that's closest to being a household name, Ubuntu, has been nearly silent since 14.04 arrived in April. To paraphrase author Charles Dickens, the past year of Linux releases has been both the best of times and the worst of times. At the very moment that Linux desktops seem to be reaching new levels of sophistication, polish and "just works" ease-of-use, the entire future of the desktop computer (by which I also mean laptop) feels in doubt.

Google is planning a big push into in-car infotainment systems with an upcoming version of Android, sources claim.

The first Android Auto–compatible cars are expected to arrive early next year. Read more
