Reddit: Bridge Linux or Antergos?

Sunday 8th of February 2015 08:55:50 AM

I have been using newbie distros for a while and wish to upgrade to Arch. I am probably spoilt and reluctant to spend time on installing the OS itself. Based on what I read, these were my options for an easier install while providing close to real Arch experience. I have no real desktop environment preference. I am looking for opinion on which to prefer as my primary. I am just looking for suggestions. So please guide. Keep it constructive please.

TuxMachines: PC-BSD 10.1.1 Cinnamon review

Sunday 8th of February 2015 08:45:23 AM

The last PC-BSD release I reviewed was PC-BSD 10.1. And that was actually just late last year. You may read that review at PC-BSD 10.1 review.

It was the worst edition of any distribution I have even reviewed.

An installation of the Cinnamon desktop, which shipped with Cinnamon 2.2, was especially bad. Out of the box, it was unusable. When PC-BSD 10.1.1 was released (on February 2 2015), I knew I had to take another look at a Cinnamon installation.

So that’s what this article is about – a cursory review of an installation of PC-BSD 10.1.1 Cinnamon.

Reddit: Need help on finding a Chromebook to run Linux xpost /r/Ubuntu

Sunday 8th of February 2015 06:37:20 AM

I am currently dual booting Ubuntu 14.10 and Windows 8.1 on my MSI GT60-2OC. This has worked great so far, but the GT60 is a fairly large model and is proving to be a little too bulky for my needs. So, I am looking to get a Chromebook for college and work. I was wondering if you guys could help me out in finding a good fit for me. I would like to put Ubuntu 14.10 on it as I am most familiar with it. I know very little about Chromebooks, except that they are pretty cheap and seem to be a good fit for my needs.

I need to write in C/C++, python (2 and 3) and HDL, although HDL will not be as important as I will most likely use a python wrapper for it. For the most part I will be doing most of the script running through ssh on a server. So gigabit WIFI/Ethernet capability is preferable. I know that there are adapters to for Ethernet to USB 3.0 that can handle the fast connection, so if Ethernet is not available USB 3.0 would need to be.

I will also need to be able to run smaller scripts on the Chromebook itself so a little bit of power will be a plus but not totally necessary. But I will need a fair amount of space on the SSD to hold files, music, and whatnot.

If anybody has experience with Chromebooks and installing Ubuntu on them, or if you have a suggestion of a better laptop to get, I would be greatly appreciative if you could point me in the right direction.

TuxMachines: Risk of the Commons

Sunday 8th of February 2015 12:35:09 AM

Free and Open Source software has revolutionized how the world consumes software. Linux, BSD, httpd, nginx, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and thousands of other software products are consumed voraciously. But almost universally people are only consuming. And generally that’s okay. Sharing is one of the key tenets and strengths – that we are able to freely share code to help our neighbor.

Reddit: Is there a version of linux, if booted from a USB, that can edit files in another operating system?

Saturday 7th of February 2015 11:52:15 PM

I need to move a kext file from my desktop to 'System/Library/Extensions' in my hackintosh. My issue that every time I boot, even with different kernel flags, it freezes within seconds after logging in. If I could just move that one little file without booting into OSX, it would make my life so much easier.
