I've been running Debian Jessie, and Wheezy before, on my laptop for a couple days now. I've noticed that in both versions that there is a lot of screen tearing when scrolling or watching video. I've tried to look for solutions to fix the tearing, but haven't found any. Tried enabling SNA in xorg.conf.d but that just kept X from starting at all. Any ideas? Laptop has a Sandy Bridge i5 with HD 3000.submitted by c_h0use

I am learning about various CPU schedulers in my OS class. I am aware that CFS (completely fair scheduler) utilizes priorities by assigning each process a weight, so a process of high priority will exhibit its time completing at a slower rate, resulting in more CPU time for higher-priority tasks and vice-versa. However my question is, on what basis does the scheduler assign these weights? What criteria would cause a CFS scheduler to give more weight to one than another?submitted by Ken_from_Connecticut

Hello all I would like to thank you all for reading and for any help that you can give. I came into possession of a pair of Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 servers. I can install an OS on them without any problems and it runs smoothly as is. I do have one issue though. There is a support package from HP that can be installed to control the fans. Though I cannot get it to install on any newer OSs like debian 7 or ubuntu 13. The only OS that I have had success with is Red Hat 7.2 and I'd prefer to not have to use that particular OS. I was hoping anyone had any tips for installing this support package on either Debian or Ubuntu. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all.submitted by archamond5

I'm trying to use curlftpfs to mount my ftp server to a raspberry pi running raspbian. I try:sudo curlftpfs ftp://192.168.1.7 ftp
to try and mount it to /home/ftp, but i getError connecting to ftp: couldn't connect to host
The ftp server is set up for anonymous access, so I don't need a user or password. I can successfully access it through chrome, and I can't figure out what I need to do to get this to work. Any help?
P.S. I'm fairly new to linux, still trying to get my feet wet with it.submitted by JuhnSnuh
Hey all, after several problems with Windows 8, and after these problems resulting in the resetting of my laptop 2 times, (and I really don't like Windows 7 anymore) I've decided to venture for something new.
I'd like to start using Linux, only thing is, I have no idea where to start as the title says, and I do not know CommandLine in the slightest.
I want something that is learn-able within a reasonable amount of time, unique, and lets me get the most out of my computer (I have a year old Sony VAIO laptop). Also, until I learn it, I'd like to have both Windows 8 and Linux available (I've heard it's possible to run dual OS, just selecting the one you want at boot).
I've heard good things about Ubuntu and Mint, but this is the extent of what I know.
So would any kind souls be willing to point me in the right direction? Thank you!submitted by Otter_Baron

If you follow networking vendors, you know they get along with one another about as well as a dog whose tail has just been pulled and a cat who’s had a bucket of water dumped on him. That’s why it was more than a little surprising when the Linux Foundation managed to get Brocade, Cisco, Juniper, and many other network powers on the same page when it came to software-defined networking (SDN). More surprising still, it got them to work on SDN together in an open source project: OpenDaylight.
