Reddit: [Help]OS

2 hours 25 min ago

I’m currently on Elementary OS. If I wanted to completely switch to regular Ubuntu without burning a USB install, how could I go about that? Just installing it as a partition? Then how would I delete Elementary? Sorry for the newbie questions.

TuxMachines: GNU/Linux on Devices: RasnAnd, WinSystems, and Cincoze

  • RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 for Raspberry Pi 3 – Build 171019/170805 – with GAPPS, Aptoide TV and Kodi 18.0-ALPHA1 to be installed in Linux

    RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 Build 170805 can be installed in Windows using Win32 Disk Imager. This method has one disadvantage. Only about 5GB can be used as data storage no matter which card you use. I have therefore today uploaded a new version, which can be (must be) installed using a Linux system. The new system from 171019 is basically the same system as the RaspAnd system from 170805. I have only added AIDA 1.47 and replaced Google Chrome with Firefox 56.0. Kodi has been upgraded from version 17.3 to version 18.0-ALPHA1. Now say, for example, that you use Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) of 64GB about 56GB can be used as data storage. This is of course a big advantage. When you are done with partitioning of the card it shall look like the screenshot below shows. The needed partitions for RaspAnd are created with GParted in Linux.

  • Rugged PC/104-Plus SBC runs Linux on a Vortex86DX3 SoC

    WinSystems has launched a rugged “PPM-C412” PC/104-Plus SBC with a dual-core Vortex86DX3, dual LAN ports, and -40 to 85°C and dual display support.

    The PPM-C412 is being promoted by Arlington, Texas based WinSystems as an upgrade path for users of the circa-2009 PPM-LX800, a PC/104-Plus SBC with a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 processor much like its circa-2008 cousin, the LPM-LX800. Like the recent WinSystems PCM-C418 PC/104 SBC, the PPM-C412 runs Linux, DOS, or other x86-based RTOSes on DMP’s x86-based, dual-core Vortex86DX3 SoC.

  • Highly modular industrial computer offers Kaby Lake or Skylake CPUs

    Cincoze’s rugged, “DX-1000” system offers 6th or 7th Gen Core and Xeon 3 chips plus triple displays, dual hot-swap SATA, 4x mini-PCIe, and other expansion.

6 hours 25 min ago
The Linux Foundation on Monday introduced the Community Data License Agreement, a new framework for sharing large sets of data required for research, collaborative learning and other purposes. CDLAs will allow both individuals and groups to share data sets in the same way they share open source software code, the foundation said. "As systems require data to learn and evolve, no one organization can build, maintain and source all data required," noted Mike Dolan, VP of strategic programs at The Linux Foundation.

Reddit: Has anyone had issues with bluetooth on Kernel 4.13.x?

6 hours 28 min ago

I've been having a lot of bluetooth issues with the newest kernel provided both by Arch and Fedora. Will, with Arch, the problem had resolved itself somehow, but since I started school, I wanted to use something I knew would be stable. I didn't want to waste time reading the Arch site to see if I had to do any manual intervention before updating. I want something that worked. I switched to Fedora, which has kernel version 4.13.5. I tried to connect my headset, but it would disconnect. While my phone was also detected, I couldn't connect to it. The issue was resolved by switching to kernel 4.11, but am I the only one with these issues?

Reddit: Firefox vim addons (now that pentadactyl officially is borked)

8 hours 11 min ago

I loved pentadactyl. It was such a good firefox addon, but alas it is no longer compatible with firefox as of version 56. So there are a bunch of other well-known vim addons for firefox, such as vimperator, vimfx, and vimium. Does anypone in here have experience with all or most of these and can give feedback about which one is worth using?

Yes, I did google this, but like many Linux questions, the answers are very old and due to programs developing and maturing at different rates, are no longer relevant to right now.

I have no experience with any of the above-mentioned addons, only pentadactyl, which no longer works.
