Because of my own fault (opened too many browser windows at the same time) my Knoppix hung up. It's working VERY slowly now and I have no chance to close the browser manually.
But I need the tabs, if I just turn the laptop off and restart I'll lose the websites. That's no option, I'll never find them again (school project). :/
The last time this happened I just waited, he calmed down after some time and I was able to close the browser. But now he didn't calm down for 6 hours. And going.
I need a shortcut to close the browser (5 are open with every window having ~10 open tabs).
STRG + W and STRG + C don't work somehow.
Please, I really need help. :/submitted by Knusperkuhsnack
Declining sales of online music can be serious concern for Apple as the industry may start to shift towards that player which dominates the sales and that player is Google/Android. One way for Apple to increase the sales of iTunes music could be by taking the iTunes store to the next most popular platform.
Tarballs are due on 2014-03-24 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.12.0 newstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that will probably be too late to get in 3.12.0. If you are not able to make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll the tarball for you!
I recently got a used laptop: Acer aspire M5-481PT-6644 and I seem completely unable to boot from anything other than windows on the HDD.
What happens: with the right BIOS settings, I am able to get to GRUB. But then selecting to boot live, the screen just goes black. It seems to be working though, because I hear the "welcome" sound, at least in the case of Mint. ctrl-alt-delete doesn't restart, I can only do so with the power button.
What I've tried: Naturally the first thing I did was a complete factory reset from within Windows 8. Then at first I thought it was an issue withe SecureBoot, since with that enabled I can't even get to GRUB. But I was able to disable it after setting a BIOS password and still no success.
I've tried three distros (Mint, Bodhi, Ubuntu) on two different media (live usb and DVD). At least two of them had been used to successfully install before, so a faulty media shouldn't be the problem.

I am planning to make my own Linux distribution, and being a sysadmin for 4+ years now, I know very well what changes I want to make to the distribution, which packages I want to choose, and even which GTK theme I will be using. What I don't know is how I will make the filesystem.squashfs image and the installer. I am certain I will be using the Ubiquity installer. I am basing my distribution on Ubuntu. I do not want to use something like remastersys, so I am interested in knowing how like Linux Mint is made. They base their distro on Ubuntu, so do they like install it on their computer first, and use something like remastersys? Or what do they do?submitted by dbfvhfdb

I'm using Debian Wheezy on my laptop, and all of a sudden today my wireless connection disappeared. When I opened wpa_gui, it read "could not get status from wpa_supplicant". When i restart networking from /etc/init.d it says "cannot read contents of /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf". My wpa_supplicant is empty.
I tried purging and reinstalling everything that basically had wpa in its name, but no dice.
Is there any other solution?submitted by Black_Wasp

I mean the official streams. I've tried on a few different computers, but every time I have the same issue. The videos won't load in firefox (running latest version of flash), but I can log in through my cable provider. On chrome (running latest, also tried beta), the free games will stream, but I can't log in. I click to select my provider and nothing happens. I know I can get like 4 hours for free, clear all saved flash data and start over, but I've had this same problem streaming ESPN games on watchespn.
I've cleared all browsing data, restarted the browser. I installed a brand new distro in a VM. I thought maybe it was similar to the HAL issue for streaming Amazon prime, but no luck with that either.
Tried on Manjaro, Ubuntu and Scientific Linux.
Has anyone had these issues?submitted by k3ithk

Reddit: Ubuntu rc.local argument--I can successfully launch something on boot, but it doesn't recognize an argument correctly.
In Terminal, it works perfectly fine, but when the command is put in rc.local, it didn't work. Here's an example.
/path/to/file -argument /file/in/argument/not/working.txt
The "/file/in/argument/not/working.txt" my main concern. How do I fix this?
What I've tried so far for the argument:
How do I correct this?submitted by jinnyjuice

Xmodulo: Before going into the details on how DNS works, a little on the background may be helpful.
