Happy New Year!

Here's hoping that all your links are good ones. Your site is one I come to every day.

Maybe vonskippy will contribute a negative amount.

Good Job Dumbass, I'm sure srlinuxx appreciates you pissing off future donations.

re: dumbass

I was trying to figure out what exactly he meant. I figured it had some connection to your comments which some may characterize as "negative."

Vonskippy has done a lot for tuxmachines. Many of you know that he provided the server (with a spare mobo) that our site runs on, but he also sent me a new monitor and harddrive for my desktop a few months ago when mine went out. So, Vonskippy has been a good friend to us.

I'll take this opportunity to thank those that did send in a donation in response to Poodle's request. They are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Someone's a little touchy. Looks like I hit a nerve.

Happy Belated Birthday

Happy Belated Birthday, Susan! I know a couple people born on the 31st, I've always considered them special/lucky for it. Let's hope that always holds true for you!


I know I don't agree with Von Skippy on everything. Where's the fun in that?

I have seen him post interesting opinions and include information to back up his opinions.

That in itself is a meaningful contribution to any forum or interactive site.

Personally, I don't think it would "feel' like TuxMachines without him.

Just my two cent.

re: wow

Then there's the priceless gift of laugher that he (Vonskippy) and Poodles (and sometimes others) have provided.

Sometimes those little jewels of silliness (and/or sarcasm) come at the most opportune times for me.

You got that right!

Thanks to everyone who donated a little something

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who stuck a few dollars in srlinuxx's g-string this year and to those who have contributed hardware to keep this wonderful news site up and running.

Systemd — unit dependencies and order

Welcome back to our continuing series on systemd features. As you’ve guessed from our previous articles, systemd brings more power and flexibility to service startup and management. One of the most important changes in systemd from legacy SysVinit is how it starts up units. You may have heard from casual users that systemd starts everything together. Some people believe this is true, and that’s why the system starts faster. But the reality is not quite that simple. Let’s look a little more deeply at how systemd understands unit relationships.

  • AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition Is A Letdown On Linux

  • New HPCG Benchmark List Goes Beyond LINPACK to Compare Supercomputers
    The High Performance Conjugate Gradients (HPCG) Benchmark list was announced this week at SC15. This is the fourth list produced for the emerging benchmark designed to complement the traditional High Performance LINPACK (HPL) benchmark used as the official metric for ranking the TOP500 systems. The first HPCG list was announced at ISC’14 a year and a half ago, containing only 15 entries and the SC’14 list had 25. The current list contains more than 60 entries as HPCG continues to gain traction in the HPC community.

  • Distro hopping: feeling good with my time on LXLE
    Well the time has come to officially switch off from LXLE. This time around however I find myself in a weird spot. I’ve honestly struggled with LXLE; not in using the distribution itself but rather coming up with things to write about it. That isn’t to say that LXLE is bad by any stretch of the imagination, in fact it is quite good, it’s just that once you get used to the light weight desktop environment (DE) there is a perfectly capable “heavy weight” distribution underneath. What I mean by this is that once you get used to the DE and it fades into the background you’re left with a perfectly functional distribution that could just as easily have been Ubuntu or Linux Mint or Fedora or {insert your favourite one here}.
  • Netrunner 17 'Horizon' is here -- download the Kubuntu-based Linux distro now
    About a week ago, the Netrunner team released an update to its rolling release operating system. Based on Arch/Manjaro, I advised Linux beginners to steer clear, and instead opt for the Kubuntu-based variant. There are a couple of reasons for this. For one, the Ubuntu community is arguably friendlier and better for newbies -- there are a ton of instructions and .deb files available too. More importantly, however, the rolling release could be less stable overall.

  • Tumbleweed install for November
    For this month, I installed Tumbleweed on my laptop. I had installed Leap 42.1 to overwrite my previous Tumbleweed install on that laptop. This computer uses legacy booting. I gave Tumbleweed a 40G partition, which I formatted as “ext4”. I also allowed it to use the swap and home file systems from my encrypted LVM on that computer.
