Linux professionals are well paid and highly sought after by job recruiters, but that's not why they chose their careers. They are motivated by their love of Linux and working with the latest, cutting edge technology, according to the annual Dice.com and Linux Foundation Linux Jobs Report released today.
Systemd – the d is for dominates: The Debian Technical Committee decided that, after quite a bumpy process, that it would follow Fedora, Arch Linux, Mageia and openSUSE in planning to switch to systemd in the next release. The Debian change rippled down to Ubuntu where, probably sooner than anyone anticipated, Mark Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu would switch too.
I'm trying to go through a user listing (for Red Hat Linux) and there are groups and usernames that have a (+) plus sign preceding it.
There are also user accounts with no (+) plus signs:
What does the plus sign mean? Does it have to do with the level of access the account has got?submitted by genfireterian
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?

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
