Reddit: I want a non-standard resolution for an HDMI screen from a laptop, but xrandr throws an error.
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) Major opcode of failed request: 156 (RANDR) Minor opcode of failed request: 18 (RRAddOutputMode)
Directions such as these, at http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/qgctu/how_to_change_into_a_new_graphic_mode_that_is_not/, are pretty common, but the discussion of this error always leads to xorg.conf changes. Is there another way, or a fix for Xrandr?submitted by zoveighkuX

So I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my roommate's 2008 Macbook recently because he was complaining about OSX not running well on it. Ubuntu runs a lot smoother on it but he is still getting the occasional freeze. What's the best linux distro for older computers like this? Something more lightweight maybe?submitted by rancordeli

Title. I'm going to be needing to be able to dual boot Linux for college, is it possible?. I've heard it's easy to set up dual boot, I just need to make sure it's possible with the laptop in question before I pull the trigger on buying it. I'm relatively inexperienced with Linux but I'm willing to learn.submitted by KevinCamacho

LXer: Short Stack: Why OpenStack Matters, Plumgrid raises $17.2MM open source foundation loses non-profit status
It's OSCON time again, and this year the tech sector is abuzz with talk of cloud infrastructure. One of the more interesting startups is Docker, an ultra-lightweight containerization app that's brimming with potential
I caught up with the VP of Services for Docker, James Turnbull, who'll be running a Docker crash course at the con. Besides finding out what Docker is anyway, we discussed the cloud, open source contributing, and getting a real job.
