LXer: Linux cksum command explained for beginners (with examples)

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 11:54:35 PM
In Linux, there's a command line tool that you can use to create/verify checksum. It's dubbed cksum. Most vendors offer a checksum (or a checksum-like code) corresponding to the file(s) being downloaded. If the file doesn't behave in an expected way, user's can recompute the file's checksum and compare it with the original checksum provided by the vendor to see if the file is intact or got corrupted.

Reddit: Why does ChromeOs have such great battery life?

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 11:12:14 PM

I know its heavily optimized for their specific use case, but its still Linux and still running Chrome. I've tried to run a Linux distro on chromebooks, and battery life is nowhere comparable, even after using things like tlp, powertop etc.

Just wondering what Google does. Maybe its inevitable with running a full OS vs just a browser, but I was getting 30-40% less battery.

Another useful command for the Linux Foundation Certified SysAdmin (LFCS) is the 'sed' Command. The initials stand for 'Streaming EDitor'.The 'sed' Command is an editor that edits the file as a stream. To stream a file is to pass it from another command using pipes ([he]gt[/he] or |) or load it directly into 'sed'.

Reddit: What's the weirdest bug/problem you have ever faced and solved on Linux?

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 09:22:07 PM
  1. Just few days ago, I have installed Debian 9 on my computer. I had other distributions on the hard disk. I installed the firmware-iwlwifi package for Debian 9 in order to get a wireless connection. Suddenly, the Internet stopped working on openSUSE Tumbleweed (Which was on the hard disk too). I have no idea about how or why, but I solved it using netconfig update -f.

  2. I had some power and heat issues with one of Ubuntu versions. I tried everything possible to solve it. Later on, I downloaded a vanilla kernel from the Kernel Mainline. Fixed everything for me. Turns out there some patches in the Debian/Ubuntu kernel which toggles some things in my hardware.

  3. I transferred a website from a shared apache-powered hosting into a nginx VPS. I have made and tested everything correctly as it should be. But when I tried to browse the website from the new VPS, it just doesn't output anything, a blank page. The log files didn't record anything about it. Turns out the hidden .htaccess file which I transferred from the shared hosting doesn't work with nginx. I removed it, and it made it work.

What's your stories?

Reddit: The github knowledge download

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 09:14:31 PM

Is there a way to download all github public repositories? It would be hard to go through them all but still, it would be interesting. Is there a way to do such a mass download? It's mostly code, so it isn't like downloading the entire movie history but still an intersting idea in my mind at least. I am aware of downloading all repos of a single user or organisation but all public repos on github? I don't know but maybe someone does. Thank you

TuxMachines: Moto E4 review: Keeping it simple

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 08:29:19 PM

The Moto E4 is fine. It's not particularly good looking or powerful, nor is it filled with features. When you think a generic smartphone, this is kind of what you think of.

And yet, for $129, I would probably recommend it, warts and all, over any other phone. At $70 on Verizon's prepaid service, it's an absolute steal. Here's why.

TuxMachines: Moto E4 Android smartphone review

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 08:27:53 PM

Motorola’s G series has been the benchmark for exceptional budget smartphones, and the lesser-known Moto E series strives to do the same to do the same at an even lower cost. With the latest entry — the Moto E4 — Motorola hits the ball out of the park with an impressive phone that offers plenty of value for $130. There will always be some compromises on budget devices, and the Moto E4 is no different. But price is very much the spotlight of this phone, and it’s quite competitive given the solid features you get. In our Moto E4 review, we’ll take a deeper look at what Motorola cut, what it kept, and how it all works in the end.

Reddit: Putting open source on production

Thursday 22nd of June 2017 08:08:40 PM

Hi everyone! I ask me if you can share your open source company experience. Im trying to introduce open source solutions on the coorporate world and my first step is to cover the gaps that closed-code solutions left. By now I'm using Vaadin to cover these gaps by doing some webs interfaces. What do you guys do? and in which scenario?

Desktop: Popcorn Linux, Purism, Distro Hopping, System76, and 2017 Linux Laptop Survey

  • Popcorn Linux OS gives processors a common language
    Thanks to a new operating system called Popcorn Linux, the Navy may be able to speed systems development and cut maintenance. Developed by engineering researchers at Virginia Tech with support from the Office of Naval Research,  Popcorn Linux can compile different programming languages into a common format. The operating system takes generic coding language and translates it into multiple specialized program languages. Then it determines what pieces of the code are needed to perform particular tasks and transfers these instruction “kernels” (the “popcorn” part) to the appropriate function, ONR officials said. Chips for video systems might be programmed in one language and those for networking functions in another. These multicore processors improve computing speed, but they also force programmers to design or upgrade applications based on what programs run on which processors. That means complex systems like battlespace awareness and artificial intelligence that require specialized processors must be manually adjusted so components can interact with each other.

  • Are You a Distro Hopper?
    Is distro hopping a dying sport or have I just gotten too old? When I first started to use Linux I was the quintessential cliche distro hopper.

But now we are hosting the 2017 Linux Laptop Survey to hopefully further improvements in this area.

Software and GNOME: Pass, Popcorn Time, Nixnote2, Grive, Curlew, and GtkActionMuxer

  • Pass – A Simple command-line Password Manager for Linux
    Keep tracking the password is one of the big challenge to everyone now a days since we has multiple password like email, bank, social media, online portal, and ftp, etc.,. Password managers are become very famous due to the demand and usage. In Linux so many alternatives are available, GUI based and CLI based. Today we are going to discuss about CLI based password manager called pass.

  • Nixnote2 – A Clone of Evernote for Linux
    When I created a list of Alternative Evernote Clients for Linux, the formerly known NeverNote was on the list as NixNote since it hadn’t gained a “2” to its title yet. It has been 4 months since and I decided to give the app its own review for you guys. Without further ado, let’s get to it. NixNote2 (also called NixNote) is an unofficial client of Evernote for Linux. It possesses most of the features Evernote provides including the use of Notebooks, tags, themes, emails, and multiple accounts.
  • Grive – A Dockerized Google Drive Client for Linux
    Not too long ago I reviewed Grive2 as an alternative Google Drive client for Linux. Today, I’ll introduce you to Grive, a Docker implementation for the Google Drive client, Grive2. Docker (if you don’t already know what it is), is a tool designed to benefit both system admins and developers thanks to its use of containers. Docker’s containers provide a way for developers to create and distribute their apps using containers.
  • Curlew is a GTK Media Converter for the GNOME desktop
    There are plenty of free multimedia converters for Ubuntu available, with command-line champ FFmpeg arguably the most powerful of them all. But this power comes with a complexity. Using FFMpeg to convert media through the command line can be intimidating and arcane. Which is why FFMpeg frontends are popular.
  • Dazzle spotlight – Multi Paned and Action Muxing
    The way the GtkActionMuxer works is by following the widget hierarchy to resolve GActions. Since the HeaderBar is a sibling to the content area (and not a direct ancestor) you cannot activate those actions. It would be nice for the muxer to gain more complex support, but until then… Dazzle.
