The Ibex Pro is one supercharged machine that will probably hurt your electric bill.
System76's fastest Ibex Pro with Ubuntu Server 16.10 packs some crazy horsepower with Intel's latest 22-core Xeon E5 v4 chips and eight Nvidia Tesla P100 graphics processors.
It's got the same number of GPUs as Nvidia's superfast DGX-1, which is being used for deep learning. System76 is targeting the Ibex Pro -- which is a rack server -- at the same market as the DGX-1. The server has fewer, but newer, CPUs, compared to the DGX-1.

The Italian Association for Free Software Geographic Information Systems (GFOSS.it) is conducting a survey to collect information about the use of this kind of software in Italy’s public sector. The results will be made public at the GFOSS.it meeting, in Genoa from 8 to 11 February.
Public administrations in Austria need to increase their use of free and open source software, the government of Austria says in its Digital Strategy. The strategy proposes to ‘push’ (forcierung) open source by public administrations. This is intended to accelerate its uptake, explains Federal Chancellery for Digitalisation.

Hello, my mother's computer has recently decided to slow to a crawl on windows, so I convinced her to give Linux a try. So far so good, she was using mint for a while, and since it was almost the same for her but I use arch I switched her to manjaro in order to make it easy for me to troubleshoot.
For some strange reason her computer (both in mint and manajaro) puts the headphone volume to 0 after every reboot, and what's even weirder is that when the headphone volume is 0 no audio comes out of the speakers. I taught her how to change the level using a graphical interface, but it's ridiculous she has to do that after every reboot.
I have tried alsactl store, but didn't work. So I did some tests on my machine and I can reproduce the issue by doing the following
- open alsamixer and change the volume settings
- sudo alsactl store
At this point if I change the volume again and perform an alsactl restore it goes back as expected, but if I reboot the settings go back to their default (ignoring the stored alsa conf).
For what I read this might be pulse overwriting the alsa configs, but I can't seem to make it stop. Anyone has any idea on how I can make alsa (or pulse) not mute the headphones on reboot (or discover why muted headphones mean muted speakers).

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Well I didn't do that but I'm not running Ubuntu either, so if that's the standard then I guess I'm non-standard.
I need to back up on version of InkScape. 0.92 is broken in annoying ways and I have things to do. Installing 0.91 from source can't find any libraries, all of which seem to be present and were installed by the package manager of Fedora (yum/dnf)
Anyone got a quick answer to how to figure out what I should set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to?submitted by /u/tsingi
Google is giving me different answers on this and a couple didn't work right. I want it so users are unable to browse other users home directory. Admin and/or root is fine just not normal users. Both from a file manager or from the terminal. What is the proper chmod for this?submitted by /u/solidcore87
