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.

Mageia Beta Delayed, Christmas Quiz, and 7 Best Alternatives

Today in Linux news the Mageia project announced another delay in version 5 Beta 2. The Linux Voice is running a Linux quiz for Christmas and Gary Newell offers up his list of the seven best alternative Linux distributions of the year. The Register says 2015 will be the year of Linux - on mobile. Three reviews need to be highlighted and, finally today, Matt Hartley says everyone should switch to Ubuntu MATE.

Christmas rest for the braves

We planned initially to release Mageia 5 beta 2 around the 16th of December. We still have some work left to complete to release a proper beta 2 that would drive us through to the final release. Releasing development ISOs is a good way to test all the functions of the installer with the largest possible scope of use cases and variety of hardware. We still have some issues left with EFI integration and some tricky bugs in the installer. So in order to allow some time to fix them and also to still enjoy the Christmas period with friends and family, it has been decided to delay beta 2 until the 6th of January 2015, the initial date of the RC, and then postpone the final release.

Enterprise Advances Brought Linux Success in 2014

For Linux, 2014 could easily be labeled the year enterprise really and truly embraced Linux. It could just as easily be labeled the year that nearly forgot Linux on the desktop. If you weren’t Docker, containers, OpenStack, or big data ─ chances are the spotlight didn’t brighten your day much. If, however, you (or your product) fell into one of those categories, that spotlight shined so brightly, it was almost blinding. Let’s glance back into our own wayback machine and see where Linux succeeded and where it did not. The conclusions should be fairly simple to draw and are incredibly significant to the state of Linux as a whole. Read more

But how can you actually leverage that project work to obtain a full-time job? Read more
