Reddit: What can we glean about you from your ten most-used commands (xpost from /r/commandline)

Thursday 6th of August 2015 11:51:32 AM

Everyone, quick! Run:

history | awk '{print $2}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -10

This will give you the ten most-used commands you run. Mine are as follows:

[~/Pr] history | awk '{print $2}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -12 274 ssh 61 host 39 ls 33 cd 30 ping 26 vim 24 cal 18 telnet 17 cat 16 traceroute

I wonder what you can tell about a man by his bash history...

TuxMachines: Korora 22 (Gnome3) Review: Works Right Out Of the Box & Includes Lots of Apps

Thursday 6th of August 2015 11:29:28 AM

Korora is an old GNU/Linux distribution (originated in 2005) that used to be based on ‘Gentoo’. But in 2007 the development of Korora was abandoned, yet in 2010, it was reborn, but this time it was based on ‘Fedora’, rather than ‘Gentoo’.

But to be honest with you, I’ve never had used ‘Korora’ before. Yet, after installing ‘Korora 22′ (based on Fedora 22) and using it for the past three days, it’s goals became pretty clear to me. It is this good looking ‘Fedora remix’ that strives to be the ‘Fedora’ that hosts a mild attitude & a sense of practicality, although good folks at ‘Fedora’ don’t have that luxury. In a world that’s dominated by ignorance & selfishness, their struggle is a difficult one. I admire their courage.

TuxMachines: KDE and Akademy

Thursday 6th of August 2015 11:22:58 AM
  • A Frank Look at Simon: Where To Go From Here

    As I had previously announced, I am resigning my active positions in Simon and KDE Speech.

    As part of me handing over the project to an eventual successor, I had announced a day-long workshop on speech recognition basics for anyone who’s interested. Mario Fux of Randa fame took me up on that offer. In a long and intense Jitsi meeting we discussed basic theory, went through all the processes involved in creating and adapting language- and acoustic models and looked at the Simon codebase. But maybe most importantly of all, we talked about what I also want to outline in this blog post: What Simon is, what it could and should be, and how to get there.

  • Akademy 2015: An awesome experience.

    So this was my very first Akademy, and I was excited about attending it ever since the beginning of when I started contributing to KDE a couple of years back. Feels great to have finally made it. Although I had some visa problems at the New Delhi airport because of which I reached A Coruna quite late and missed out on the entire first day of the conference, still I’m glad I could at least reach Rialta by sunset of that day and be able to attend the rest of all the days at Akademy.

  • Kubuntu Podcast #3 - Akademy 2015
  • Fiber Update; WebEngine vs CEF

    I also spent a good chunk of my time reading Qt and KDE coding guidelines and documentation on how files and classes should be structured, and then I applied that information to Fiber. The result now is well commented code, and consistent naming conventions in-line with other Qt/KDE projects.

  • Report from Akademy 2015

    A week has passed since I’ve been back from Akademy, so it’s more than time to make a little report.

  • Akademy 2015 – an unforgettable experience

LXer: WifiTransfer App Lets Users Move Files from Ubuntu Touch to Any Other Distro

Thursday 6th of August 2015 03:25:37 AM
Ubuntu Touch might be an operating system for mobile devices for now, but first and foremost, it's a Linux distribution. And like any Linux distro out there, it's really good at connecting to other devices, in this case a PC via the FTP protocol.

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.

  • Sick of memorizing passwords? A Turing Award winner came up with this algorithmic trick
    Manuel Blum, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who won the Turing Award in 1995, has been working on what he calls "human computable" passwords that are not only relatively secure but also don't require us to memorize a different one for each site. Instead, we learn ahead of time an algorithm and a personal, private key, and we use them with the website's name to create and re-create our own unique passwords on the fly for any website at any time.
  • Car thieves use 'mystery device' to break into vehicles
    A car manufacturer recalled more than a million cars following security concerns about car hacking, as the National Insurance Crime Bureau issued an alert about a "mystery device" being used to break into vehicles by defeating the electronic locking system of later-model cars. So-called connected car "convenience technology" could put consumers at risk. "Right now, what has happened is the digital key fob has become a way for someone to steal your car," NICB investigator James "Herb" Price said.
