why you should always have a live cd in your pocket

Filed under
Linux

How many times one of your friend has called you to his home to complain about a problem with the PC? What to do there then? If he’s a friend we try to give him a hand. So we improvise as computer technicians. I can only give you a hand improvising, in turn, I’ll give you a list of things to have with you when you go to their home.
I focused the article, as you can see from the title, mostly on the Live Distro. Why this choice? Simply because if the PC does not want to start after a corruption of the Operating System what remains to do is only one thing! Format all. So we must first find a way to recover the data from the PC that not start.

Let’s start as first thing, it is always good to have with us a laptop with an Internet Key. None of us is omniscient and so a search on the Web could be very helpful.

Rest here

V2 Of KDBUS Published For Linux Kernel Review

The second revision to the Linux kernel based D-Bus implementation is now available for review. Greg Kroah-Hartman on Thursday night posted the "v2" revision of the KDBUS implementation for providing the kernel with a new IPC implementation that resembles the existing user-space D-Bus daemon while adding extra features. Among the changes in this revision to KDBUS are exposing its control files and other information via a new kdbusfs file-system, KDBUS expects to be mounted to /sys/fs/kdbus, a new KDBUS domain is created for each time kdbusfs is mounted, and various other low-level changes. More details via the patch-set series. It's not clear yet whether KDBUS will be ready for merging in the Linux 3.19 kernel or will be held off until Linux 3.20 or longer. Read more
