Reddit: NTP - burst and iburst

Monday 30th of May 2016 11:50:04 AM

Hi,

Can burst and iburst options coexist in the same line in NTP config file?

I've ran across an ntp configuration like that, but I'm not sure if that's functional. As I understand, burst is aggressive form of iburst and I don't see the point of using both in the same line. Can this be the cause of NTP not syncing at startup?

This is what the line looks like.

server <pool> burst iburst minpoll 4 maxpoll 4

Thanks!

TuxMachines: Ubuntu bq Aquaris M10 Review Part 2: Software

Monday 30th of May 2016 11:41:46 AM

In part one of our rather lengthy review, we took a look at the bq Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet's hardware. Suffice it to say, it perfectly played the role of a mid-range tablet. While the device had a few ups, like its lightweight design, bright display, and substantial battery, it would have been easily passed for a mediocre slab if not for the software running on it. In this round, we take a deeper look into what makes this tablet truly one of a kind, and almost literally too. This time, we take a dive into the alien world of Ubuntu Touch.

LXer: Seeing Red and Getting Sleep

Monday 30th of May 2016 09:58:08 AM
I'm always leery when I hear, Recent studies show.... But the idea thatlooking at electronic device screens before bed can cause sleep issuesseems to be fairly accepted. The fascinating part for me is that it isn'treally the screen itself, but the blue part of the color spectrum thatcontributes to the sleeplessness.

TuxMachines: Mozilla turns Firefox OS into IoT hub

Monday 30th of May 2016 09:16:47 AM

As an operating system, Firefox OS has undergone a massive transformation in the past 24 months – it’s far more than just a web browser nowadays. But now Mozilla is looking to take Firefox to the next level by using it as a hub for a plethora of Internet of Things projects.

Mozilla is currently working on four IoT projects behind the scenes: Project Smart Home, Project Link, Project Sensor Web and Vaani. Each of the projects will deal with IoT technology in different ways, but all are aimed at making the end consumer’s home and devices smarter. In a blog post, Mozilla’s SVP of Connected Devices, Ari Jaaksi, posted: “Everything is connected around us. This revolution has already started and it will be bigger than previous technology revolutions, including the mobile smartphone revolution. Internet of Things, as many call it today, will fundamentally affect all of us.”

TuxMachines: Kicking the Tires on Arch Based Antergos

Monday 30th of May 2016 08:55:03 AM

We decided to take the Arch Linux based distribution Antergos out for a test drive. Here’s how it handled, out in traffic and on the track.

A few months back, a fellow tech writer mentioned in an email exchange that I might try using the Arch Linux based Antergos distro as a way to grab the latest and greatest versions of popular software titles for review. Mainly because of Arch’s community repositories, in which users suggest and vote on packages to be included, many popular software titles are available within days after a new release. And since Antergos is a simple install compared to Arch, it would be easy to quickly throw up an installation on a test machine just to look at the latest and greatest from LibreOffice, GIMP and the like.

Reddit: Issues with HDMI output and Kali Linux

Monday 30th of May 2016 08:07:52 AM

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the community and was wondering if you guys could help me out. I'm running the latest distribution of Kali-all with intel integrated graphics on a Zotac ZBOX-C. Using the GNOME desktop environment, my adafruit 7" backpack display (without touch) would show signs of an HDMI mismatch (probably from the TFP401 driver issues), but as most of us would agree, XFCE4 is a much better environment.

After switching over to XFCE4 I am unable to get any response from the screen past a quick flash, until it powers off. I know that this isn't an issue with connection, as I am able to use HDMI and VGA with other displays, and the display works perfectly fine with my other debian machine and windows machine.

The main issue, I believe, is that I am unable to edit the /boot/config.txt, since it does not exist. The adafruit tutorials all want you to use a raspberry pi installer or a manual config.txt addition to force the display settings. xrandr cannot find the display either.

Any ideas on how I would enable this display? I was really hoping it would provide the fix I need, since I don't want to run everything headless, I don't have space for a fifth monitor, and HDMI KVMs are pretty much shit. (I plan to use synergy to integrate my mouse and keyboard)

I will be readily available to provide any console outputs that you guys need to get to the bottom of this head scratcher.
