Reddit: Linux news sources

1 hour 13 min ago

A comment on a post in r/linuxquestions made me think about other resources (besides wikis, forums, manuals, etc) that might make the migration for new users easy. One of the most relevant things might be having a podcast or something like that to play on the background while doing other things, so you can get your dose of new without taking time away from other things.

So I thought we might gather resources to be up-to-date on the latest news on the Linux world, to learn about new technologies, be aware of issues issues, know a bit more about the community, find tutorials, reviews, etc.

Of the top of my head, I'd recommend:

Reddit: What happen when you write a file smaller than the chunk size in a RAID ?

1 hour 50 min ago

Hi folks,

Quick question, I was reading some stuff on mdadm and I came accross this definition of the chunk size:

we choose some chunk- size, which we define as the smallest "atomic" mass of data that can be written to the devices

So I was wondering, what happen when you write to your RAID 0 for example, a file that is smaller than the configured chunk size?

For example, I set the chunk size to 1024K and I write a file of 16K (RAID 0 with 2 disks). What happens ?

Thank you !

Reddit: Avast is interrupting connection with Ubuntu archive

1 hour 54 min ago

So Avast is interrupting connection with us.archive.ubuntu.com, saying that it is infected with "ELF:Agent-RA". Googling for "ELF:Agent-RA" shows absolutely nothing. Is it even relevant or is it just a figment of Avast?

I hope I added post to good sub.

EDIT: Actually it happens when I am updating ubuntu and blocks only one of all the connections to us.archive.ubuntu.com and it's not even first one, rather middle one.

LXer: How to Benchmark Your Linux System

Monday 16th of July 2018 05:43:36 AM
There are a bunch of reasons that you'd want to benchmark your Linux system. Most people benchmark out of pure curiosity or to measure the system's performance for games. Benchmarking can also help you identify problems with your system, though, and improve weak points for a smoother and more efficient experience. Benchmarking also helps you identify possible software issues and problematic upgrades with regressions.

TuxMachines: Want to Make Linux Mint Look Like a Mac? This Theme Can Help

Monday 16th of July 2018 05:02:44 AM

We’ve established how easy it is to make Ubuntu look like a Mac but theming Linux Mint, the popular Ubuntu-based offshoot, is a little trickier.

But no more.

It’s now possible to make Linux Mint look like a Mac too, and it’s all thanks to a customised version of the uncannily accurate macOS Mojave GTK theme we highlighted here, just a few weeks ago.

If you’ve longed to add some Cupertino styling to the Cinnamon desktop, keep reading!
