I'm trying to install Google chrome and steam in my Gnome ubuntu Virtual machine. I'm running it in VMware Workstation 12. Whenever i click install, though, the bar under the button moves just a little bit, then disappears like i never pushed the button. Sorry if this is an easy answer, total noob to Linux. EDIT: nvm. Didn't realize it straight up doesnt work. used Gdebi.

  • Open Source at SanDisk

    More than ever, traditional companies are embracing open source and find that it can get out of control if they don’t have a coordinated plan to manage it. And what do I mean by a traditional company? Companies that are pre-open source (or born before 1995). Also companies that are not in the hardware or software product space, but more in the services space – financial, telecom, healthcare etc.

  • SysArmy Joins OSI Affiliate Member Program

    New affiliate membership highlights diverse communities of interest supporting open source software beyond programmers.

    The Open Source Initiative (OSI), the steward of the Open Source Definition (or OSD), is announcing the affiliate membership of SysArmy. SysArmy, a community of system administrators and IT professionals from Argentina, was founded to provide, "support for those who give support."

  • Open source will revolutionise the enterprise storage market

    Mobility, social media, the Internet of Things, Big Data and the cloud have caused data volumes to reach new heights. Businesses already have too much data to cope with, and it’s unlikely that the growth of ‘Big Data’ will slow down any time soon. Analyst firm IDC has said that the amount of data in the world doubles every two years, and that by 2020 there will be 44 trillion gigabytes of data stored. This data presents massive opportunities for businesses and IDC has also predicted that those organisations that analyse all relevant data and deliver actionable intelligence will see an additional $430bn (£300bn) in productivity gains by 2020 than those that don’t.

Reddit: What browser do you use? Firefox? Chromium? curl? Something else?

Friday 10th of June 2016 11:46:07 PM

I'm curious to see which web browsers you guys use, and what the consensus is on them. I use firefox, but lately I've been bothered by the way that tabs run in a single process (and crash together).

How do you prioritize performance, stability, privacy? Do you use add-ons? Do you use a fork of a firefox/chromium, or the main one?

How about Opera? Any Opera fans here?

Or something else that I've forgotten?

Reddit: The situation on the issue of mobile OS.

Friday 10th of June 2016 10:27:49 PM

I am not really happy with the situation that is the mobile phone industry in terms of software.

We have mainly 2 operating systems for phones and some derivatives, 1 is hardware locked and cant be changed nor added to a different phone.

Most users will have much trouble chaning OS on a phone for a multitude of reasons. One being that most users have a contract with their phone service provider which requires them to pay for a phone that cant be rooted, unlocked, or modified easily. The other is that even if you do have a fully bootloader unlockable phone it isnt an easy process.

When installing a different OS on an Android phone, it seems it has to be compatible with the bootloader which is still Android.

Will we ever see a hardware open phone where it is untethered of any standing software with easy manipulation of OS?

Will we ever be able to transition from these devices being smartphones to becoming pocket computers where we can install and compile our own kernels/distros and our own choice of desktop environments that are phone and desktop compatible so that we may be able to easily switch from using it as a smartphone to connecting it to our desktop and using it as a home computer?

TuxMachines: Red Hat and Fedora

Friday 10th of June 2016 08:40:13 PM
  • Setting up Vagrant for testing Ansible

    As part of my Google Summer of Code project proposal for the Fedora Project, I’ve spent a lot of time learning about the ins and outs of Ansible. Ansible is a handy task and configuration automation utility. In the Fedora Project, Ansible is used extensively in Fedora’s infrastructure. But if you’re first starting to learn Ansible, it might be tricky to test and play with it if you don’t have production or development servers you can use. This is where Vagrant comes in.

  • Some tools for working with Docker images

    For developing complex, real-world Docker images, there are a number of tools that can make life easier.

  • Fedora 24 delay, and more openQA work

    You probably read a more sensationalized version of this on Phoronix already, but we had the Fedora 24 go/no-go meeting today and decided to slip for a week. The sole reason for this was this blocker bug, which is to do with booting Windows from the Fedora boot menu on a UEFI system, wasn’t fixed in time. If you don’t need to do that, you could frankly go ahead and grab a Fedora 24 nightly and use it. It’ll be fine. Go ahead, have a ball.

  • Contributing to Fedora Quality Assurance

    Every day, people from all over the world work together to create and support new releases of Fedora. One of the many important tasks is QA, or quality assurance. The QA sub-project in Fedora helps test software updates and new versions of Fedora. This includes testing in Rawhide, the “constantly changing” branch of Fedora development, as well as the alpha and beta releases.

  • Getting started with Fedora QA (Part 1)

    This article is a part of a series introducing what the Fedora Quality Assurance (QA) team is, what they do, and how you can get involved. If you’ve wanted to get involved with contributing to Fedora and testing is interesting to you, this series explains what it is and how you can get started.

  • 32nd Chaos Communication Congress (32C3)

    At the end of last year Zacharias and Jacob joined me in representing Fedora at the 32nd Chaos Communication Congress in Hamurg, Germany. It was the first Fedora Event that I organized as Fedora Ambassador, therefore I was quite nervous. Until I arrived at the hotel it was unclear whether I will have any swag to decorate the assembly (there are no classic booths at the Congress), but I also packed some blue sweets, chocolate and Aachener Printen to lure visitors to our assembly. Luckily as you can see on the picture, additional swag also arrived in time.

TuxMachines: Leftovers: Debian

  • Reprotest has a preliminary CLI and configuration file handling
  • Reproducible builds: week 58 in Stretch cycle
  • Working to pass GSoC

    Habits are a powerful thing. Successful students have a habit of making at least one commit every day. The "C" in GSoC is for Code and commits are a good way to prove that coding is taking place.

  • Google Summer Of Code

    This the title of my project for this summer. It sounds good, but what am I going to really do? Well, since I’m a student at Université du Québec à Montréal, I have had the opportunity to meet with the company Savoir-Faire Linux in Montreal last year and that’s when I found out about their exciting project: Ring.

  • You'll thank me later

    Consent culture was not part of my education, and it was something I've had to discover for myself. I assume that to be a common experience, and that pushing against boundaries does happen, even without malicious intentions, on a regular basis.

TuxMachines: Why Rust for Low-level Linux programming?

Friday 10th of June 2016 08:31:49 PM

I think Rust is extremely well-suited for low level Linux systems userspace programming — daemons, services, command-line tools, that sort of thing.

Low-level userspace code on Linux is almost universally written in C — until one gets to a certain point where it’s acceptable for Python to be used. Undoubtedly this springs from Linux’s GNU & Unix heritage, but there are also many recent and Linux-specific pieces that are written in C. I think Rust is a better choice for new projects, and here’s why.

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
