How do you do this? I have the source file, and when I run
../configure/ --prefix=$HOME/.local --enable-languages='c c++'
It spits out this

I'm scratching my head as to why this doesn't seem to work.submitted by DomMk

Users who like flat icons might want to give Flattr a try. It's probably the flattest theme that you can find on the Linux platform and it's been recently updated.
BackBox Linux is a distribution based on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, that is built to perform penetration tests and security assessments. A new version has been released and is now available for upgrade and testing.
Reddit: Pro-tip when archiving entire disks: overwrite each filesystem's unallocated space with zeroes for a perfect compression ratio
If you're archiving personal disks and don't care about the pseudo-random unallocated data, write a file containing all zeroes to each filesystem:$ dd if=/dev/zero of=zerofile
Once it's done, delete it:$ rm zerofile
Later on, if you archive your images, the empty space will compress to a near-zero total size where it would otherwise be wasting space for no benefit. This works kind of like a zip bomb, but intentional. This also applies to pushing an uncompressed image over a network: if you use compression, you'll use minimal network traffic for the zeroed areas in the image.
I'm archiving a disk over a network right now, so I thought I'd share in case it would help anyone!submitted by synthead

I have to configure a barebones Amazon Linux AMI at work, which doesn't have access to internet (deals with sensitive data). I was hoping to access it over the weekend but their instances seem to shutdown on non-work days.
Is there a way to get access to something similar? I was thinking of getting my own Amazon Linux AMI, but I have to transfer a few large files and I don't have the fastest internet (Australia).submitted by DomMk
