Reddit: Cannot figure out how to install Ubuntu on my MBP partition.

Wednesday 7th of September 2016 04:45:46 AM

I've tried everything.

I have Ubuntu on a bootable USB that I imaged with Unetbootin. When the USB is in REFINED prompts me at start up with the options, and I am able to run Linux just fine.

I see a lot of videos demonstrating to install and it shows that there is an option that says 'Install alongside OSX' when installing from the USB, but mine does not have that option.

I have tried to create a partition with Disk Utility, and then install it manually from the USB to the partition that I created, which seemed to work. It took ~10 minutes and displayed all your normal downloading/installing screens, and then appeared to be finished.

When I rebooted it was there with a password login and everything. When I booted back into OSX and took the USB out, the next time I rebooted I no longer saw the option for Ubuntu...

Any ideas?

Last month, computer scientists discovered a serious flaw in Linux kernel that allows hackers to hijack your internet connection and terminate the communication between two machines. This flaw also affects about 80% Android smartphones. Now, Debian GNU/Linux has released a series of fixes that address this issue by increasing the "rate limit for TCP Collect ACKs."

Phoronix: Trying Out The FreeBSD-Powered TrueOS With Its Custom Qt Desktop

Wednesday 7th of September 2016 12:00:00 AM
While I've been running PC-BSD on some systems for years I hadn't tried out any of its rolling-release FreeBSD 11.0-based spins under the new TrueOS brand nor had I tried out the project's Qt-based Lumina Desktop Environment since it reached 1.0. That changed today with trying out the latest weekly spin of TrueOS x64...

LXer: Giving proper credit to designers in 3D printing

Tuesday 6th of September 2016 11:15:44 PM
Have you ever wondered who designs the colorful 3D printed demonstration objects commonly found in social media posts, online videos, hackerspaces, advertisements, websites, and trade show booths? If yes, then you have unknowingly recognized a major problem in the 3D printing community. Many of those objects are shared under Creative Commons licenses that require attribution be given to the designer, but there are no established standards on how or where credit should be given.read more

Licensing resource series: Free GNU/Linux distributions & GNU Bucks

When Richard Stallman set out to create the GNU Project, the goal was to create a fully free operating system. Over 33 years later, it is now possible for users to have a computer that runs only free software. But even if all the software is available, putting it all together yourself, or finding a distribution that comes with only free software, would be quite the task. That is why we provide a list of Free GNU/Linux distributions. Each distro on the list is commited to only distributing free software. With many to choose from, you can find a distro that meets your needs while respecting your freedom. But with so much software making up an entire operating system, how is it possible to make sure that nothing nasty sneaks into the distro? That's where you, and GNU Bucks come in. Read more

Linaro beams LITE at Internet of Things devices

Linaro launched a “Linaro IoT and Embedded” (LITE) group, to develop end-to-end open source reference software for IoT devices and applications. Linaro, which is owned by ARM and major ARM licensees, and which develops open source software for ARM devices, launched a Linaro IoT and Embedded (LITE) Segment Group at this week’s Linaro Connect event in Las Vegas. The objective of the LITE initiative is to produce “end to end open source reference software for more secure connected products, ranging from sensors and connected controllers to smart devices and gateways, for the industrial and consumer markets,” says Linaro.

  • Linaro organisation, with ARM, aims for end-end open source IoT code
    With the objective of producing reference software for more secure connected products, ranging from sensors and connected controllers to smart devices and gateways, for the industrial and consumer markets, Linaro has announced LITE: Collaborative Software Engineering for the Internet of Things (IoT). Linaro and the LITE members will work to reduce fragmentation in operating systems, middleware and cloud connectivity solutions, and will deliver open source device reference platforms to enable faster time to market, improved security and lower maintenance costs for connected products. Industry interoperability of diverse, connected and secure IoT devices is a critical need to deliver on the promise of the IoT market, the organisation says. “Today, product vendors are faced with a proliferation of choices for IoT device operating systems, security infrastructure, identification, communication, device management and cloud interfaces.”
  • An open source approach to securing The Internet of Things
  • Addressing the IoT Security Problem
    Last week's DDOS takedown of security guru Brian Krebs' website made history on several levels. For one, it was the largest such reported attack ever, with unwanted traffic to the site hitting levels of 620 Gbps, more than double the previous record set back in 2013, and signalling that the terabyte threshold will certainly be crossed soon. It also relied primarily on compromised Internet of Things devices.
