LibreOffice 5.0 was released a week ago, and one of the things mentioned in the announcement was the fact that it's a cornerstone of the mobile clients for Ubuntu Touch and Android. A developer wanted to clarify what that actually meant.
Ubuntu will have a dedicated PPA for video drivers, for now only for the Nvidia ones, and third-party developers are already praising the devs for this decision.
I have a growing YouTube channel on tech stuff, which as of now is mostly Android videos. I am looking to expand and I was thinking about making videos on common Linux tutorials as well as those hard to find things, like getting NVIDIA's 900 series cards working on older kernels.
Any ideas or thoughts?GrayBoltWolf

Quickest path to a local apt repository
As I’m writing this, DebConf 15 is coming to an end. I spend most of my time improving the situation of the Haskell Packages in Debian, by improving the tooling and upgrading our packages to match Stackage 3.0 and build against GHC 7.10. But that is mostly of special interest (see this mail for a partial summary), so I’d like to use this post to advertise a very small and simple package I just uploaded to Debian:

pressed 'default' at the unetbootin menu.
after about ten minutes at a screen completely devoid of any useful information, which i spent reading dilbert, it ended up with a warning about root not existing and dropping me to a root shell.
This is not what i was promised when i went to the fedora page with its nice graphics and a lady saying "it just works".submitted by fwipyok
