LXer: Collaboration isn't what they taught you in school

Monday 28th of July 2014 06:13:52 PM
Throughout most of my education, I was taught that collaboration was cheating. With the exception of teacher-sanctioned group projects, I had learned that working with others to solve problems was not acceptable. So when I got to college and the first assignment in my computer science class was to read an article about the benefits of pairwise programming and open source, I was very confused.read more

Reddit: can run two none SLI graphics cards in linux?

Monday 28th of July 2014 05:41:49 PM

He all.

Odd question I know but what happens if I install two Nvidia 750ti's into my machine? I have two monitors will each one get the power of a whole card to its self?

I know you can make this work under windows but I'm just not sure about linux. The reason I ask its that at the moment I have two machines both with 750ti's in them one runs windows for the express purpose of streaming games over to my other Arch machine. As I have a dedicated gaming 'box' for streaming to other rigs I was thinking about spending some cash on a better GPU for it. so I will have two 750's knocking about. I thought maybe i could dedicate each card to a single monitor.

I alwasy run 2 Monitors and don't have any massive problems but a graphics card each can't hurt right? anyway, as its a none SLI Card im not sure what the drivers will make of it.

As i said i use Arch, and the Proprietary Nvidia Driver.

is it even worth it?

anyway, any thoughts would be welcome.

Reddit: How can I help Linux?

Monday 28th of July 2014 05:33:49 PM

I am a Engineering PhD student. I use Xubuntu 14.04 and really love linux. I have donated small amounts of money to Elementary OS and to Ubuntu.

Sadly though...I have no programming experience and I don't really have time to become good at it (my time goes into being a scientist/engineer). Is there any way that I (and people like me) can contribute to Linux besides financial donations? I am so grateful that FOSS developers have put in this work so that I can use all of this for free. I wish I could contribute more though..

Reddit: How do you manage gigabytes data like entertainment, holiday pics and music on Linux

Monday 28th of July 2014 03:35:47 PM

On windows, Drive partitions are named as C,D,E,F. With time user becomes quite familiar with this drive letters.

When using any distro however many times you see a string of characters(quite less user friendly) and have to recognize partition by its total size.

I don't use Home directory since I like to try different distro. Also GUI tools(like nautilus) are not that friendly when browsing through files.

Any solutions??

Edit - This is my home computer with slow internet connection. I don't really want to use a media manager. I just manually navigate to file location to open it. I am not talking about a file server

LXer: Home Stretch For Supporting Our Net Neutrality Reporting

Monday 28th of July 2014 02:25:08 PM
As I mentioned in the past, our reporting on SOPA was toxic to many advertisers. On the advertising side of things, the blog went from profitable to unprofitable as a result of the SOPA fight -- even as our traffic doubled. Our revenue from advertising was cut by more than 50%. And the net neutrality fight is the same way for many as well. I'm not complaining about it, because we knew that was a risk of standing up for what we believe in, and we wouldn't change a thing. But, because of that I need to ask directly for your help today. If we can reach this goal, it will allow us to do a variety of things, including bringing in some additional writers and guests, spending more time digging through various FCC filings and other paperwork for important details (rather than spending time trying to find advertisers).http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140725/16014828011/home-stretch-supporting-our-net-neutrality-reporting.shtml

Phoronix: Even With Re-Clocking, Nouveau Remains Behind NVIDIA's Proprietary Linux Driver

Starting out the last week of July's Linux benchmarking on Phoronix is a fresh comparison of several NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards when comparing the performance of the latest open-source Nouveau driver against the latest NVIDIA proprietary Linux graphics driver. While the Kepler cards now support GPU re-clocking, the results aren't quite ideal yet.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more

New Human Interface Guidelines for GNOME and GTK+

I’ve recently been hard at work on a new and updated version of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, and am pleased to announce that this will be ready for the upcoming 3.14 release. Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become increasingly similar, and new design patterns have become the norm. During that period, those of us in the GNOME Design Team have worked with developers to expand the range of GTK+’s capabilities, and the result is a much more modern toolkit. Read more

Linux is Evolving

Again, using the flexible building blocks that Linux is built out of in interesting and creative ways to build something new and amazing. It is incredible to look at the previous generation of server operating systems, which often threw in everything plus Firefox, KDE, and the kitchen sink, and compare that to where we are going now. Small, modular, special purpose server distributions that are miles away from the desktop or what we had before, but still sharing the same open source Linux core. The evolution of Linux continues to be endlessly fascinating, I can’t wait to see what comes next. Read more
