Reddit: Got RHEL 7.1 Workstation running on a Thinkpad T450s, if anyone is curious

Thursday 6th of August 2015 03:20:26 AM

I've got a couple new workstations for the office and decided to go with RHEL 7.1 workstation (Fedora was going to be my choice, but it is too disruptive to upgrade employee's machines). Two things of note;

  1. The touchpad is a pita on the stock kernel. However, elrepo's kernel-ml (4.1.4 as of today) works like a charm. Note that 4.1.3 worked, but there was some funny video artifacting when bootings/shutting down.

  2. The iwl7265 wireless worked with the stock kernel with the firmware RPM from RH, but did not work with elrepo kernel. To fix this, I checked out the kernel wireless git repo and copied the files manually and it worked like a charm.

Cheers

Reddit: Can someone recommend a cheap laptop that will run linux well?

Wednesday 5th of August 2015 03:57:03 PM

I'm looking for a preferably sub $300 laptop that will run linux well and is known not to have incompatibility issues. Would like a cd/rom drive in it. I know what I'm gettng at that price level. I intend to wipe windows and run linux and xfce full time.

Thanks for recommendations. Dell refurbs from their site are fine, too - if someone can let me know how well they work.

I'm not a gamer, but I would use gimp alot.

Wednesday 5th of August 2015 01:25:25 PM
Data is the new black.And not without reason—it's keeping companies in the black. It helps them understand consumer interaction with their products, make tailored recommendations, improve their services, and optimize everything from supply chains to talent acquisition.

LXer: Design electronic circuits with MeowCAD

Wednesday 5th of August 2015 11:31:03 AM
At the heart of most electronic circuits is the printed circuit board (PCB) that serves to both physically support electronic components and connect those components together. PCBs are often designed and laid out using Electronic Design Automation software (EDA). There are many desktop EDA software packages available and with some EDAs now running in browsers, there’s been a recent trend to place PCB design entirely 'in the cloud', executing the design software in the browser and communicating back to a central server.read more

5 Reasons Not To "Not Use Linux"

2000+ people have already watched Tim's video and that is potentially 2000 people that might not use Linux based on invalid arguments. Hopefully a few more people will read this article and therefore redress the balance somewhat. Before I go I wanted to mention that Tim has produced his own counter argument called "5 Reasons To Use Linux". The points in that video state that Linux is multikernel, is open source, has support for many different hardware devices such as the Raspberry PI, has lots of distros (which kind of counters against point 5 in the reasons not to use Linux) and finally it is free.
