TuxMachines: Linux Foundation LFCS and LFCE: Jorluis Perales

Monday 30th of January 2017 08:51:53 PM

I became interested in Linux a few years ago, when I realized how easy it was to use a different OS that required less resources and the best of all, was available for free. I downloaded a CentOS image and created my very first machine. Staring at the terminal, I thought, “Now what?”. It was hard at the beginning, coming from a stylish GUI interface and then facing a terminal. I started to read lot of Linux books, followed step-by-step tutorials, and of course not giving up. Within a month, I created multiple Linux servers like Apache server, NFS, Mail and Proxy server, started to participate in several local Linux conferences, and made good connections which helped me to understand the benefits of using Linux for everything.

Reddit: Using "apt-mark showauto | xargs apt-get install" will still upgrade packages? xpost /r/debian

Monday 30th of January 2017 06:55:00 PM


I marked the packages which could be removed with

apt-mark showauto | xargs apt-get install

know I am wondering if these packages will still be upgrade (when there is an upgrade available) with

sudo apt-get upgrade

or are these packages now marked as "on hold and don't upgrade"?

Thank you.

I was just wondering what the difference between the ";" command and "&" command is. They both allow me to execute multiple operations on one line in the terminal but when using the & command a weird number pops up sometimes.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Linux Kernel News

budgie-remix 16.04.2 Comes Equipped with the HWE Kernel from Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

The great folks from the Ubuntu Budgie (formerly budgie-remix) GNU/Linux distribution had the pleasure of announcing the general availability of budgie-remix 16.04.2. What's budgie-remix 16.04.2, you may wonder? Well, as Ubuntu Budgie did not yet have a stable release, and because many people are still using the distro on their PCs with its previous name (budgie-remix), the developers updated it to be based on the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, which inherits the newer Linux 4.8 kernel and an updated graphics stack based on Mesa 12.0 3D Graphics Library from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), budgie-remix 16.04.2 comes equipped with its HWE kernel and graphics stack, as well as the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment.
