Today we released an updated Netrunner 17.01.2 Desktop ISO, which ships the just released version 3.0 of Calamares Installer and KPMCore 3.0.2.
This hopefully will fix the UEFI bootloader issues that some people reported, so if you experienced those with the previous ISO, this might fix it.
Reddit: Is it possible to turn a hard drive with a disc image file into a true clone of the original image source?
If I have a disc image file (for example created with ddrescue) on a hard drive, is it possible to convert this hard drive so that it becomes a direct copy of the original source so that you can mount it and make changes to it as with any other hard drive? In my specific scenario, the image file is more than 50% of the size of my hard drive.
Basically, what I'm trying to achieve is to set up a workflow where I can clone one of my hard drives to another hard drive without having write directly (sector for sector) to the new disc, but rather to an image file first. I want to have this workflow as a precaution and safeguard against me accidentally confusing the source with the destination and erase all my data.submitted by /u/Speldosa
Hello, I have been using Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit for the past few months. I switched away from Windows after it took a pretty big dump on me. Now having been using Linux for a bit I feel like switching back. Since using it I've encountered bugs (which I've fixed), what feels like a degradation in hardware, etc. I want to continue to use Linux but I'm not really seeing its benefits as of right now. Maybe you guys could convince me otherwise?submitted by /u/macalonypeperoni
I am a 15yo high school student and I am using windows 7(windows 10 sucks in my opinion) but recently a thought of changing to linux came to my mind after reading a lot oarticles and watching some videos.
Some for reasons for that are:
-Windows 7 seems ugly and not clean at all
-Slow startup and its slow even if my pc is fairly good.
-I hate microsoft word and powerpoint its so clunky and ugly
Also i heard that linux is better for productivity,for school work and for programming (which i am learning).Also linux is clean and beatiful
I usually learn how to program on my pc,surf through social media,do school work (powerpoint and word) and I programm a lot.
Would you recommend me to change to linux? Or i should just stick to windows 7? My brother told me not to changesubmitted by /u/Tigir24
I have spent several hours this weekend migrating to a dual-boot situation (Win 10 & Ubuntu 16.04). I'm loving linux...especially for my dev work.
My company uses Skype though and there are some problems. The official skype app appears to be 3 years old. Messages don't go through..in general it's complete shit.
Skype online sort of works but I can't do things like screenshare. Am I missing a more obvious solution or am I just kinda screwed here?
We actually aren't using Skype for businesssubmitted by /u/tspek
Hey, I took a class in undergrad on operating systems. We used virtualbox to try out the different operating systems and do basic maintenance and tweaking of preferences.
I don't remember much of it (it was maybe 8 years ago), so I'm asking what Linux version I should try just to get my feet wet again. Hopefully I can familiarize myself with the basics of just using it, before trying console commands further down the road (possibly with a different version if and when I get to that point).submitted by /u/AlphaKiloCarrillo
Reсеntlу, I understood dаting wеbsitе in thе Intеrnеt - it’s the most еffectivе wау tо mееt а girl.
I registеred оn the most poрular dating sitеs, but with these girls hаve a long timе to corresрond, theу wеre reluctаnt tо аnswеr and rarеly agreе оn thе life dating.
Persоnally, I wоuld likе tо find a girl just fоr sex, without аny rеlations.
Оne my friеnd аdvisеd tо lооk fоr оnline dating sitеs fоr sех. At which the girls registеr with the sаmе рurposes - to find a partner tо fuck.
It turnеd оut thаt thеsе sitеs аrе vеrу muсh more men than wоmen.
"Which dаting site is free and рroven?" - I аsked thе questiоn in the differеnt men forums.
I’vе rеgistеrеd аt mоst of thеm, but I found one suitablе dating wеbsitе. I note that it's without chargе and аlwауs a lot оf girls frоm diffеrent cities and cоuntriеs are оnlinе.

I have a netbook with an Atom N450 (1C/2T) @ 1.66Ghz and 1GB DDR2 with an Atheros wifi chip. What is the lightest linux that I can actually install to the disk without having to do weird things. I have tried lubuntu, but even that performs crap on this. All I want it to do is do semi-smooth internet browsing which lubuntu failed to do regardless of browser. I would use Puppy or DSL but they dont really like to install sadly.submitted by /u/boredherobrine13
