Wazi: These two Apache modules can be useful in creating a staging environment, fixing unsupported web applications, or just adding custom HTTP headers for troubleshooting and monitoring.
I tried searching google but haven't got any decent results, so I ask you kind folk.
Do you know how well Rhythmbox works with new iPhones and iPods? I have an iPhone 5 with iOS 6 and am thinking about getting a previous gen nano. Should I just expect it to work seamlessly or is there a chance it might just not work (I haven't done any non-iTunes sync since the third gen iPods when there still a bit or reverse engineering needing to be done so I don't know where the current state is)
Thanks a bunch!submitted by Nymunariya

I have an old EEE PC 900 netbook with 12 GB of storage total. It has 4 GB of faster flash and 8 GB of slower flash. I want join it all up in 1 partition with consistent performance across all space. Is it possible to do something like striping with 2 different sized drives in LVM? Like when you write something, it is striped between X fast blocks of the 4 GB drive and 2X slow blocks of the 8 GB drive.submitted by semyon2105
I am new to the linux space and i keep hitting this problem. I want to have 2 groups of users on a linux installation. One of the groups has read and write access to a particular folder,while the other group only has read access. I have not been able to do this with the linux permissions sistem because i cannot set the owner as a group. I may be approaching this the wrong way or i'm missing a very basic fact about the linux permissions system. Any help would be appreciated.submitted by andreeii

Luckily there are a lot of options of “cloud storage” for Linux users, at the moment I’d suggest copy.com, that should be one of the provider that offer more free space, they offer 15 GB for free + 5GB for every referral that sign in with your code, or + 5Gb if you sign in using a referral code (please be aware that in the link there is my referral code).
Or I’d go with Google drive, there are a lot of interesting options for Linux Desktops and also for Android Smartphones.
As last choice the old, but always good, dropbox that offers a smaller space, but has great features on their clients, both on the web than on multiple platforms.
So in short, don’t forget to save your data, and goodbye Ubuntu One, i loved the old Tomboy integration to keep notes synced among multiple computers…
Today in Linux news, Geary 0.7.0 was recently released despite the programmers' troubles with the IRS. Debian released an update the 6.0 branch of their old stable Linux distribution. A new Duke Nukem enhanced compilation game has hit beta. "GCC 5.0 is expected next year" and Linus is getting grumpy! And finally today, two new Mint 17 reviews round out the Linux news on this Monday July 21.
it’s no secret that I like Deepin 2014. But what’s not to like about something that’s good and has the potential to be even better. There are features (on the installer) that need to be implemented and several rough edges on the desktop that calls for more polishing, but in general, this is one desktop distribution that I think you should, at least, take for a test drive.
While we maybe living in a post-PC era, there is no denying the fact that the desktop OS still matters. Mac OS X is an operating system that is still ahead of Ubuntu when it comes to the race towards the number one desktop. Apple knows that, and that is why they seem to have put a lot of work in making Mac OS X 10.10 "Yosemite" as good as their mobile operating system, which is iOS. The goal here is convergence. Apple wants to build an ecosystem in which the desktop, the mobile, and the wearable operating systems work seamlessly together in harmony. This is the same thing Microsoft is aiming for and so is Google. And yes, Shuttleworth's brainchild Ubuntu is shooting for the same thing by working really hard on the next iteration of the open-source OS. But, with all these efforts, can Canonical match up with its competition?
Well, it can if it takes some of the great things its competitors are doing. Both Apple and Google are known for "borrowing" each other's ideas. If Canonical does a bit of that, its desktop might be able to reach a whole new level. So, if you are an Ubuntu fan wanting some of the best things from Apple's latest Yosemite on your desktop, here is a list of few things Canonical can steal or copy from Cupertino right away.
