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 ?submitted by /u/duc123
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.submitted by /u/some_random_guy_5345
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.submitted by /u/ThousandFootOcarina

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 worksubmitted by /u/soroushm
