Reddit: Pinning confusion....

Sat, 19/04/2014 - 1:56am

I am running a moderately cusomized distro. It is Crunchbang (which is debian based) that runs only OpenBox. Further, I have integrated Kali tools into it (Kali is also Debian).

My problem is that I find the openbox/XFCE file manager Thunar lacking as a file manager. Preferably, I would like to use NEMO, which is a file manager that is from a Mint gnome fork.

What I would like to do is install and update NEMO from the appropriate Mint repository, but nothing else... I know I am asking for trouble as it is since I have Crunchbang, Wheezy stable, and Kali repositories, and there could conflicts already within these three repos.

But I really would like Nemo. So, if I modify apt_preferences, could I set it to only go to the LinuxMint repo for the Nemo package???

Sat, 19/04/2014 - 12:17am
Canonical is no stranger to trying to attract Windows users to the Ubuntu Linux platform. Back in 2008 with the Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Herron" LTS, Canonical introduced a technology called "Wubi," which is a Windows-based installer for Ubuntu.

Phoronix: Getting Hit By The Variable Performance Of The Public Cloud

Sat, 19/04/2014 - 12:11am
With yesterday's official release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS I set out to do some benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS vs. 14.04 LTS in the public cloud. Unfortunately, that testing was drawn out due to the variable performance out of instances/droplets in the public cloud that are even of the same instance type...

LXer: IPSEC/L2TP VPN on Ubuntu 14.04 with OpenSwan, xl2tpd and ppp

Fri, 18/04/2014 - 11:19pm
This is a guide on setting up an IPSEC/L2TP vpn server with Ubuntu 14.04 using Openswan as the IPsec server, xl2tpd as the l2tp provider and ppp or local users / PAM for authentication. It has a detailed explanation with every step. We choose the IPSEC/L2TP protocol stack because of recent vulnerabilities found in pptpd VPNs and because it is supported on all major operating systems by default. More than ever, your freedom and privacy when online is under threat. Governments and ISPs want to control what you can and can't see while keeping a record of everything you do, and even the shady-looking guy lurking around your coffee shop or the airport gate can grab your bank details easier than you may think. A self hosted VPN lets you surf the web the way it was intended: anonymously and without oversight.
