Reddit: Apache server won't start.

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 5:06pm

My parents have a arch linux box for a server. It runs apache as one of its ~30 deamons.

My father called me saying that he can't connect to the web page. Shortly he admitted he was messing with electrical breakers to get a oven going. And the server has a surge protector. So I go in and see that everything is running except httpd.

the journal ctl xn or something like that stated that a line in the .conf can't find a module. Some .so file.

apache coincidentally updated so I thought it would fix itself but it didn't.

what should be my next steps when I have a chance to get back at it? Remove and reinstall?

LXer: Curtiss-Wright Low Power Processing Card Runs Linux/DSP BIOS on Multicore TI OMAP-L138

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 4:51pm
The MAT/101 is based on Texas Instruments’ OMAP-L138 embedded platform, which houses both an ARM 9 core and a TI digital signal processor (DSP). Linux is typically supported on the ARM while DSP BIOS or another DSP realtime operating system such as Enea OSEck runs on the DSP.

Reddit: Web Browsers with a Client/Server model?

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 4:35pm

The vast majority of my work is a browser and a terminal. For the terminal work I fire up a tmux server with 10 windows with multiple panes (CTL, Email, DNS, BD-Rt, Dist-Sw, acs-sw) and such. I have about 50+ persistent ssh connections running and I just connect from which ever station I'm at and and i'm right where I left off. It has the added benefit that you can set up two(or more) clients so that I can connect to the same session twice on dual monitors and have different windows up side by side.

I'm looking for a web browser that could be used in the same way. I've poked around, but googling client server web browser turns up a bunch of stupid pictures and explanations of the client server model. Ideally there would be a server that runs on one box and holds a persistent state then It could be connected to with one or more client browsers. Not to mention the performance from a server in a datacenter with 100Mbps down 48 gig ram and could basically hold thousands of tabs.

Any one heard of this? Any Idea how difficult it would be to fork a major browser and separate client server tasks?

Anyone interested on working on this with me?

Thoughts, comments, recommendations, insults all welcome below. Thanks guys.

Reddit: Help running Studio 13.37 distro

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 3:17pm

I've bought the 64 bit digital download of Studio 13.37 and can't seem to get it to run. The iso was loaded on an sd card using universal pen drive installer or whatever the correct name is. I chose unlisted iso since it was not available in the drop down. When I boot the desktop with the drive, it shows the main page of the distro, then shows the process of it loading files to ram, and once that is finished my monitor looses signal. I was too impatient to let it run overnight, but I doubt symptoms would've changed. Can anyone please help? I've used Linux, but let's call me a beginner :)

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 3:17pm

Software companies have long realized the economic and strategic value of using and contributing code to external open source projects. But they're much slower to understand and apply the same open source methods of collaboration to their own projects internally, said Phil Odence, vice president of business development at Black Duck Software in a Collaboration Summit presentation today.

Reddit: Use YUMI the create a bootable usb that stores more than one boot image!

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 1:37pm

I recently learned about YUMI

It is a multi-boot installer that uses syslinux. It is customizable and very organized.

Ordinarily I use UNetbootin It is great for making a bootable usb stick. However, unlike YUMI, it is not a multiboot. So you can only hold one bootable image with it.

LXer: Brazil's - Marco Civil - Internet Civil Rights Law Finally Passes, With Key Protections Largely Intact

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 12:54pm
We first wrote about Brazil's 'Marco Civil' back in October 2011, when we described it as a kind of "anti-ACTA". That's because it was designed to protect online rights, not diminish them, and was the product of a democratic and transparent process, not of secret corporate lobbying...... Precisely because it was not yet another corporate wishlist, but sought to enshrine fundamental user rights, it was fiercely attacked by an array of industries. In November 2012, it looked like Marco Civil had been killed off by the lobbyists, but in 2013 it showed signs of life again. Now comes the good news that it has finally passed a key vote in Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies; significantly, digital activism once more played a crucial role:
