Reddit: [Question] Ubuntu and Android, sharing the kernel?

Wednesday 2nd of July 2014 05:04:35 PM

So I got down to thinking, about how Android and Ubuntu operate on a similar kernel. I also am aware that it is possible to run two desktop environments on the same kernel (possibly using a chroot environment?) My question is: Could it be (theoretically) possible to run Android(x86) on the same Linux as Ubuntu, forcing Android to use Ubuntu's libraries instead of its own? Yeah I know about emulators and whatnot, but actually switch between X server and Android display?

Reddit: Help me start from scratch

Wednesday 2nd of July 2014 04:33:06 PM

Hey /r/linux ,

I need help with starting from scratch. By scratch, I really mean from scratch.

I'm going to high school in september and I think that my current knowledge of computers is absolutely horrible ( 3 years of IT a really shitty IT class with a bad teacher ). While I do understand some basics, I feel that almost everything I was taught isn't correct. I need a few good books to explain computers to me, from turning it on to hard stuff like advanced linux stuff.

Help is appreciated!

Wednesday 2nd of July 2014 03:59:36 PM
I have used various Linux desktop environments over the years: GNOME, KDE, LXDE and XFCE. As for the best Linux desktop? Each experience has its advantages. Some Linux desktops offer lots of glamour and neat effects, while others provide a solid (be it simpler) user experience without making the end user feel like they’re using a desktop from the late 20th century.

LXer: Python Foundation uncoils as membership opens up

Wednesday 2nd of July 2014 02:05:14 PM
By relaxing its rather constrictive membership process, The Python Software Foundation is starting to uncoil. And Nick Coghlan, Provisioning Architect in Red Hat Engineering Operations, couldn't be happier.Coghlan recently earned a seat on the Foundation's Board of Directors, where he'll help oversee the open source programming language's governing body. He assumes his position at a critical juncture for Python. Many high-profile Linux distributions are beginning to offer Python 3 by default, encouraging developers to transition to the latest version as Python 2 support dwindles. And the PSF is altering its membership structure—making joining a much more straightforward matter for developers all over the more
