Reddit: Need advice for choosing a good linux OS for server

Monday 20th of February 2017 05:06:04 AM

My company have agreed to provide a server for me to build a linux server, to setup some api

Actually I am not a sysadmin, I am just the only guy who know how to use linux, and only use linux on desktop not on the server.

I do know some linux OS like fedora,openSUSE,redhat, but I need to know more.

Which linux OS good on the server and the hardware spec to use it ?

Reddit: Why do userspace drivers exist (for touchpad)?

Monday 20th of February 2017 04:45:50 AM

This is quite confusing for me. I have a HP Chromebook 14 that I run Linux on. By default, the trackpad doesn't work so I install xf86-input-mtrack and I use the following config file:

Section "InputClass" MatchIsTouchpad "on" Identifier "Touchpads" Driver "mtrack" Option "TrackpadDisable" "1" Option "Sensitivity" "0.45" Option "FingerHigh" "0" Option "FingerLow" "0" Option "ButtonIntegrated" "false" Option "ClickFinger1" "0" Option "ClickFinger2" "0" Option "ClickFinger3" "0" EndSection

I was thinking today that I should probably upstream it so that it works out of the box for other users but I hit a weird dilemma. Even if I upstreamed this to xf86-input-mtrack, it would be pointless because most distros use xf86-input-evdev by default. And even if I upstreamed it to xf86-input-evdev, evdev is going to be replaced with libinput anyway so my work will be wasted.

So my question is: why do userspace drivers even exist? Why can't everything be done in the kernel? If everything is done in the kernel, I can upstream a fix and it will always work. But because we userspace drivers exist, I have to upstream my work to every single userspace driver if I want it to work out of the box for everyone.

Reddit: Using virtual box

Monday 20th of February 2017 03:37:55 AM

I have to do a homework assignment for my linux class so I was downloading VB to use it and it asks me "how much RAM should i give to it". I don't have much RAM so sorry if this is a stupid question, but does it permanently stay on it? Like am i basically losing the RAM i put in? Or is it just while it's open it uses that much? My labtops only got about 4GB of ram so I don't really want to perma lose it. Sorry if this is a dumb question, thanks.

Reddit: [Help] I can't get wifi to work

Monday 20th of February 2017 02:42:51 AM

(I am very new to linux, so please excuse my stupidity)

So I installed linux and there is no wireless.

I am using fedora 25 on a late 2013 macbook pro with an airport wifi card (802.11 ac)

The wireless is not working and my troubleshooting attempts have failed. There was no kmod installed and I installed akmod then rebooted, but it still does not work

Ten Years as Desktop Linux User: My Open Source World, Then and Now

I've been a regular desktop Linux user for just about a decade now. What has changed in that time? Keep reading for a look back at all the ways that desktop Linux has become easier to use -- and those in which it has become more difficult -- over the past ten years. I installed Linux to my laptop for the first time in the summer of 2006. I started with SUSE, then moved onto Mandriva and finally settled on Fedora Core. By early 2007 I was using Fedora full time. There was no more Windows partition on my laptop. When I ran into problems or incompatibilities with Linux, my options were to sink or swim. There was no Windows to revert back to. Read more
