Reddit: Help on getting wifi-adapter working

Saturday 30th of May 2015 10:00:21 PM

Hi guys,

I'm a total linux newb. Today I tried to install Elementary OS and it went fine.

I can't get my wifi-adapter to work though. It's called Asus-ac56. I tried to install a driver from ASUS website with an ethernet connection. It said 'script complete' in the terminal when I installed the .sh file but when I restarted it's not working - and ethernet isn't either.

Opening network in system preferences displays the message 'the system network services are not compatible with this version'.

What do I do to fix this and get my adapter working?

TuxMachines: Why your next database will be open source

Friday 29th of May 2015 08:58:49 PM

While open source databases have long been popular for niche use cases, over the past decade they've steadily grown in maturity and importance.

In fact, as Feinberg and Adrian note, "open-source RDBMS products have matured in the availability of DBA skills, availability of DBA tools and near-equality of RDBMS functionality. OSDBMS is being used successfully in mission-critical applications in a large percentage of organizations."

TuxMachines: Letter to the Fedora council - is the Fedora community forgetting its primary goal?

Friday 29th of May 2015 08:30:14 PM

I've been around in the community for quite a bit, and while I'm not a kernel-dev or a team lead, I still like to think I belong to the community - helping where I can. Why I've stuck around over the years, other than because I've made friends in the community that I'd miss, is the philosophy of Fedora - the stance we take towards FOSS - which distinguishes us from any other Linux distribution.

If a phone manufacturer produced smartphones with ARM, EFI, and open-source touchscreen drivers, would anything stand in the way of a completely GNU/Linux Smartphone, that used only a different DE/WM?

How to Make Money from Open Source Platforms, Part 3: Creating a Product

What is the value of an open source platform? Would someone ever pay for it outright? Indeed, how does someone use an open source platform? Let’s start with the oldest and most significant of open source platforms, Linux. For the longest time, Linux was dismissed as a non-viable data center technology for “enterprise-grade” or “business critical” operations because it had no support model, no applications that ran on it and no obvious way to make money from it. How, then, did Linux become the engine that fueled the growth of the world’s open source ecosystem, an ecosystem that could be valued in the trillions of dollars, when calculating the percentage of the world’s economy that relies on open source systems? Was it just a bunch of hippies sharing the software and singing about it, or were there clear business reasons paving the way to its eventual victory? Read more
