I work with a rather old Thinkpad X200T which is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo SL9400 processor. I am curious if there is any use case for thermald for such type of an machine or whether thermald should be only used on more recent Intel laptops.
Furthermore I think that the following kernel error is caused by thermald when being activated:Feb 21 23:59:25 thinkpad kernel: Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason 21 on CPU 0. Feb 21 23:59:30 thinkpad kernel: Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled? Feb 21 23:59:32 thinkpad kernel: Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
Essentially this tells me that the thermald and the kernel do not know how to handle my CPU with the new power settings, I assume?submitted by orschiro

“Well shoot,” I thought to myself. I was already planning my exit strategy and trying to figure out how I was going to get out and maintain the slightest credibility for Linux. The last thing I wanted to say was, “Sorry, Linux won’t work with your present printing system.”
I'm not much of a programmer (Have a tad of visual basic under my belt. Like, the basic commands, if;then statements, variables, and arrays. Almost nothing), but I am taking my CompTIA A+ certification exam soon. Also, I've worked on computers personally since I was 13; owned my first two when I was 6. Also, that's irrelevant.
I want to give Ubuntu a shot. So I downloaded the .iso. I went to create a bootable flash drive with it. But every tool that I use (Burning to make a bootable DVD, Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool, a couple other bootable drive utilities from download.com, and even mounting the .iso as a virtual drive so it acts as a bootable drive to install from within Windows 8) fails. Every time, there is an error (the type, code, and info eludes me). And whenever I search online for the error, I can find no working results.
Ultimately, I have no clue why my download of Ubuntu fails to be written as a bootable drive with every utility I try.
Any ideas, fellows?submitted by drewbiek

I recently came up with the idea of building a home file server. I'm a Sophomore CS student so I figured it was also about time I learned Linux. What I want to do with it is use a 60GB SSD for boot drive Debian being the OS, and I have 4x4TB WD Reds that I want to run in a RAID10 setup. Since I am very new to Linux in general, many of the guides i've looked at including the Linux RAID wiki presume knowledge of Linux already.
So my question to you guys is, do you know of any really noob guides to accomplish such a task? I haven't even installed the OS yet, I just want to be prepared for when the parts get here.submitted by Ezaraku

Softpedia: Linux kernel 3.13.4 brings several fixes and updates for the ARM64 architecture, especially a coarse clock handling fix.
I downloaded the 32 bit Python version of Enthought Canopy, opened my terminal, changed directory to "Downloads" where the file is located, then typed the command "bash canopy-1.3.0-rh5-32.sh". All I am receiving on my terminal is this:
" ERROR: wrong file size The file size of: canopy-1.3.0-rh5-32.sh should be: 294870687 bytes"
what do I have to type on my terminal to install this program?submitted by irwt

You don’t have to look too hard at the slate of new smartphones to see Android’s “bigger is better” ethos. While iPhones have remained resolutely conservatively sized, Android manufacturers continue to push the limits with phones like the 5.5-inch LG Optimus G Pro or the 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega.
There are some newer phones that do have sub-5-inch screens, fitting the “mini” trend. But these phones also have diminished internals. If you want the latest and best inside, a large outside is unavoidable.
The research group asked organisations still using Windows XP about their plans post-April, when Microsoft ceases providing official support and security fixes for the 11-year old OS.
11% of the (admittedly small) 641 companies queried stated they intend to switch to Linux. The low-cost, robust security and growing reputation in enterprise use are likely key factors informing such plans.
It has been a while since I last wrote a review about Zorin OS. Time moves pretty fast and with other distributions making great strides, is there still a place for an operating system like Zorin which basically deploys a familiar looking desktop on top of Ubuntu.
It has been a couple of versions since the last review so it is a bit pointless for me to just write the differences between now and then, so instead I am going for the full review as if I had never seen it before.
Some work really well with Linux installations, dual-booting with no problem right from the start. Others are difficult, unpredictable and downright maddening in their inconsitency, and seem to go out of their way to prevent Linux booting. So if you want to dual-boot Linux and Windows, try to find a description written by someone with the same system you are using, or at least a system from the same manufacturer.
