GoAccess is an open source real-time web log analyzer and interactive viewer that runs in a terminal in *nix systems.
My grandmother's computer is a second-generation Mac Mini currently — the late 2005 1.5GHz G4 SuperDrive, bought when it was going out of style in 2006. Currently runs the last available OS X 10.5.
By now that computer is starting to show its age a tiny bit.... But actually it still almost works for the purpose.
I'm thinking it's time for something that can still get updates that are newer than 5 years ago. Ideally something inexpensive, silent, not particularly powerful, but with decent accessibility features (screen zoom etc is important).
So I figure this sounds like something that would be almost ideally suited to a raspberry Pi, running either raspbian or Ubuntu or kUbuntu. I don't wanna skimp on important things, so what I came up with:
-Raspberry Pi 3 -Samsung Evo+ 64G (these seem to be by far the fastest microSDs available for random write) -Anker 2 port 24W (power supplies really need some headroom for this usage, I've found) -random case & heat sink kit -hdmi to DVI cable -Anker 30cm USB power cable
The lot is about 100 euros, give or take.
Is there an even cheaper alternative that gets me a working system for less?
Conversely, are there alternatives where I can spend just a little more for significantly better functionality?
I've looked at odroid, bananapi, cubieboard, and beaglebones, but I remain to be convinced any of them are relevant to me.submitted by /u/JasperJ

Folks, I've been doing sysops stuff for a couple years, and using Linux as a hobbyist for many years before that, but I've never really figured out how to diagnose the root of uninterruptable system wedges - I've always simply rebooted a system when this happens, skimmed the system logs & sar for anything obvious (almost never), and gone on with life.
I'm starting to be responsible for much larger systems and if a system wedges up and needs to be rebooted, it's likely that answers about the cause will be demanded.
Are there any resources you can send my way for learning to diagnose these sorts of hard system wedges?
Thanks!submitted by /u/hohumcamper
