If Linux and the GNU had a tagline, what would you have it be? My personal favorites are "For a GNU generation" and "For you. For everyone." The former being one I stumbled upon on a forum, and the latter being a reference to how customizable Linux is, and how anyone can use it because of such.submitted by /u/dvdmuckle
Back to my Sunday schedule, things look fairly normal. Calm first part
of the week, with most fixes coming in towards the end.. I'm used to
it by now.
Things have definitely gotten smaller, so a normal release schedule
(with rc7 being the last one) is still looking possibel despite the
large size of 4.9. But let's see how things work out over the next
couple of weeks. In the meantime, there's a lot of normal fixes in
here, and we just need more testing.
The stats for rc5 look extremely boring (which is a good thing). Two
thirds driver updates, 10% arch updates, 10% filesystems, the rest
"misc". Nothing really stands out, with the possible exception of the
re-enablement of "-Wmaybe-uninitialized" again after Arnd fixed it all
Hi guys, I'm running Kali Linux with Virtualbox on my Macbook Pro with OSX El Capitan.
I've got an ASUS AC51 wifi adapter and I'm trying to install the Linux driver using the instructions that were provided with the install CD but I'm not having any luck.
Please tell me what I need to do - starting with where I need to place the mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3001_dpo_20130725.tar install file.
Currently the mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3001_dpo_20130725.tr install file is sitting on my Kali Linux / VirtualBox desktop and the AC51 wifi adapter is plugged into my computer.
Please give me a step by step install guide from this point as none of the instructions below seem to work...
Maybe it's because I have the mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3001_dpo_20130725.tr file on the Kali Linux / VirtualBox desktop when it should be somewhere else?
Thanks in advance!
MT7610U Linux Driver quick start
*Before install driver, please check already install compile tool and kernel source code
1>Install compile tool $yum install gcc-c++
2>check kernel source code exists /usr/src/kernels/ "kernel name"
Download your kernel source code *http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/
or $yum install kernel-devel
1> $tar -xvf mt7610u_wifi_sta_vxxxx_dpo_xxxxxxxx.tar.bz2 go to "mt7610u_wifi_sta_vxxxx_dpo_xxxxxxxx" directory.
2> In Makefile
set the "MODE = STA" in Makefile and chose the TARGET to Linux by set "TARGET = LINUX"
define the linux kernel source include file path LINUX_SRC
modify to meet your need.
3> In os/linux/config.mk
define the GCC and LD of the target machine
define the compiler flags CFLAGS
modify to meet your need. ** Build for being controlled by NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant wext functionsPlease set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'. => $wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d
** Build for being controlled by WpaSupplicant with Ralink DriverPlease set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n'. => $wpa_supplicant -Dralink -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d
# compile driver source code, need administrator.
# To fix "error: too few arguments to function °•iwe_stream_add_event"=> $patch -i os/linux/sta_ioctl.c.patch os/linux/sta_ioctl.c
5> $make install #install driver #copy RT2870STA.dat to /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat
6>$vi /etc/rc.d/rc.local #input "ifconfig ra0 up"
** Ubuntu 13.04 don't have this file. $reboot
7> unload driver
$ifconfig ra0 down
$make uninstall $reboot
Note: If you want to change os/linux/config.mk setting, please remove driver and reinstall.submitted by /u/101linux
The dhcpcd device name changes to enp5s0 from enp0s3. First I couldnt start the dhcpcd ser ice with systemctl because there were no PID file. I copied the dhcpcd file and changed the name. After that I could start it, but it still gave me an error
Then I went to the dhcpcd.conf and added interface, with IP, router IP and DNS. *Still not working, I can only successfully ping the IP, with the rest I get "Host destination unreachable" *
There's been a long time since I > pacman -Syu
Do you think that has something to do with it?submitted by /u/1ngar
I've been an avid mac user for most of my life. I love working on mac and I can be extremely productive on mac. On top of that I love gaming which has made it difficult to justify buying a new mac, so I bought a Windows desktop computer which I mostly use for gaming and studying, but I still use my mac for other work related stuff (I still prefer mac over windows for productivity stuff, I feel that windows is a pretty shitty OS in comparison). In the last couple of months Linux has caught my attention and so I installed Apricity OS on my mac and I'm interested in learning Linux, but I feel that simple stuff like installing programs and updating packages and drivers can be a hassle which is why I am having second thoughts. I just feel like mac OS is a lot more polished that apricity OS. So what advantages are their to using Linux? Am I using the wrong distro or do these problems have simpler solutions? I mainly want to use my Linux computer for programming and productivity.

Reddit: Applications in what programming languages can be run on most Linux systems easily, with no add. libraries to be installed?
Applications/scripts in what programming languages can be run on most Linux systems with no additional libraries to be installed at all? Assuming that only the standard runtime or library of a language is used in an application/script. Python, C, Assembler? Perl? If Perl, is it 5 or 6?
Or in case of complicated languages, a compiled application in any language such as Haskell or Rust can always be run with no issue? By run I mean it doesn't require installing any additional libraries, and by issue I mean the same thing -- requirement of installation of some libraries that don't come by default with a certain Linux distributive.submitted by /u/Todaa81
