Filed under
Ubuntu

System76’s Ubuntu-based Oryx Pro is a Linux laptop loaded with features also found in some of the fastest Windows laptops.

The Oryx Pro can be the ultimate Linux gaming laptop. It can be configured with a 15.6-inch 4K screen and Nvidia’s latest Pascal GeForce GTX 1070 GPU.

The laptop with those features starts at $1,987, and goes higher as more storage and memory are added. The ultimate 4K Oryx Pro configuration with 9TB of SSD storage prices out at $7,012. It comes preloaded with Ubuntu 16.04 or 16.10.

What To Do When Ubuntu Can't Use Free Unallocated Disk Space

Filed under
Ubuntu
HowTos

This only affects people who are using a computer with a legacy BIOS that already has 4 primary partitions in use.

To fix the issue remove one of the 4 primary partitions.

Important: If you decide to remove a data partition make sure you have backed up the data first. If you decide to remove a recovery partition make sure you have created other recovery media

After deleting one of the 4 partitions you should be left with 3 primary partitions and an area of unallocated disk space.

When you run the Ubuntu installer you should now see the option to install alongside Windows 10.

If you do not get the option to install alongside Windows 10, choose the something else option as the installation type and create 2 extended partitions in the area of free space, the first taking up most of the disk space and mounted to root (/) and the second taking up around 8 gigabytes for swap space. The amount of swap space can be reduced or increased depending on the age of your machine and amount of memory available.

System76 adds 4K display to Ubuntu Linux-powered MacBook Pro competitor Oryx Pro

Ubuntu

Apple makes a damn good laptop, and its new MacBook Pro computers are no exception. Unfortunately for some, Apple's latest offerings are too expensive and fall short -- most models lack the ability to upgrade the SSD, and the RAM maxes out at 16GB. Interestingly, many upset Apple fans even turned to System76 and its Ubuntu-powered machines following the big MacBook Pro unveil.

At the time, I compared the MacBook Pro to the Oryx Pro to highlight that you could get more performance from System76 for less money. Obviously, it was not an entirely fair comparison, as they are different in many ways. For example, the Oryx Pro only featured a 1080p screen. Today, this changes, however, as System76 adds a 4K display option to its MacBook Pro competitor. Will this make macOS users more likely to switch to Linux?

JuJu Offers Speedy Model-Driven Software Approach

Filed under
Ubuntu

The JuJu cloud platform developed by Canonical integrates a wide variety of cloud services and servers on both public and private clouds using an innovative model-driven software approach.

That success has changed fundamentally the nature of software operations as organizations move to cloud-scale services, according to Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical.

The impact on cloud operations is very much like the transition that happened with the big data community, Shuttleworth told technology writers and analysts during a teleconference earlier this week.

"That brought about a velocity of change in the data field -- the same thing we believe is happening with the cloud software," he said.

Juju is an interesting approach to managing installation and configuration in a visual or model-driven way, observed Al Hilwa, program director for software development research at IDC.

"In this sense, it brings many of the benefits of modeling which have typically been used in software development to the realm of software configuration and life cycle management," he told LinuxInsider.

  • Debian Contributors Survey 2016

    In order to better understand and document who contributes to Debian, we (Mathieu ONeil, Molly de Blanc, and Stefano Zacchiroli) have created this survey to capture the current state of participation in the Debian Project through the lense of common demographics. We hope a general survey will become an annual effort, and that each year there will also be a focus on a specific aspect of the project or community. The 2016 edition contains sections concerning work, employment, and labour issues in order to learn about who is getting paid to work on and with Debian, and how those relationships affect contributions.

    We want to hear from as many Debian contributors as possible—whether you've submitted a bug report, attended a DebConf, reviewed translations, maintain packages, participated in Debian teams, or are a Debian Developer. Completing the survey should take 10-30 minutes, depending on your current involvement with the project and employment status.

    In an effort to reflect our own ideals as well as those of the Debian project, we are using LimeSurvey, an entirely free software survey tool, in an instance of it hosted by the LimeSurvey developers

  • Ubuntu Continues Working On Netplan For Network Configuration

    Earlier this year Ubuntu developers announced Netplan as a new, consolidated network configuration tool. Netplan was added to Ubuntu 16.10 and more improvements are on the way for Ubuntu 17.04.

  • Ubuntu Developers Continue Talks To Discontinue i386 & PowerPC Images

    Discussed today during the Ubuntu 17.04 Online Summit was the dwindling state of PowerPC (32-bit PPC) and i386 (x86 32-bit) support for Ubuntu and overall Linux for that matter. Images are still being produced but likely for not much longer although the package archives are anticipated to remain.

    Routinely the past few years there have been discussions over discontinuing Ubuntu i386. No announcements were made today but from the sounds of it, the official images might not be produced much longer while other Ubuntu spins may still produce them. The Ubuntu i386 archives also aren't endangered of disappearing anytime soon as they are still needed for 32-bit software compatibility, etc.

  • What’s In Store for Unity 8 in Ubuntu 17.04 (And Beyond)

    October’s release of Ubuntu 16.10 gave us our first real look at Unity 8 in its formative desktop guise.

    But as we noted in our hands-on article at that time, Unity 8 on the desktop, while somewhat functional, offers a somewhat basic user experience.

  • A Couple New Vulnerabilities, Unity 8 Futures

    Another day, another vulnerability; The Register today reported that a new local vulnerability that can allow someone root access. Hack A Day also reported on a bug, this one sounded so fun the way they explained it. Elsewhere, OMG!Ubuntu! and Phoronix previewed Unity coming attractions sourced from Ubuntu 17.04 UOS summit notes and DarkDuck gave Debian 8 a quick run-through.

    [...]

    The last look at Unity 8 gave users a bit of pause, but upcoming releases promise to be much improved. While focusing on a "full desktop experience," convergence is still the key word of the day. They plan to make Snaps more important and rely less on .debs (eventually removing them altogether), they want to move the apps scope and dash into an "app drawer." They hope to add multi-monitor support and implement full window management (app windows, dialog boxes, context menus, tool tips, and the like). OMG!Ubuntu! and Phoronix have more on that.

  • Unity 8 & All Snaps-Based Ubuntu Still Expected For 18.04 LTS

    Today during the Ubuntu Online Summit for Ubuntu 17.04 was a convergence Q/A talk where Unity 8 and delivering a all-Snaps image (no Debian packages) were talked about for nearly one hour.

  • A Very Basic Ubuntu Online Developer Summit Is Happening Now

    Today and tomorrow is a very basic Ubuntu Online Summit (UOS) where the developers are plotting their work for Ubuntu 17.04, the Zesty Zapus.

  • Ubuntu Online Summit for Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Starts Today, November 15

    Today, November 15, 2016, is the first day of the Ubuntu Online Summit (UOS) event put together by Canonical for the upcoming Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Linux-based operating system.

    It's not the first time we inform our readers about Ubuntu Online Summit taking place between November 15-16, 2016, but today is the big day, so we had to write another story just to make sure we've got your attention. The event welcomes all members of the community, as well as Ubuntu developers, and takes place online, so it's free.

Reviews
Ubuntu

The one thing that made me not try to blowtorch my laptop in anger after I was done reviewing the terrible Yakkety Yak was the inclusion of the Unity 8 desktop environment in the distro, allowing for some fresh testing. The word desktop is probably not the best vocabulary choice here, as this hybrid-like environment already blithely powers touch devices like the Ubuntu Phone and the M10 tablet. But we're on a laptop, so.

Anyhow, I wanted to explore Unity 8 some more, but I did not want to do it as part of the distro review. This is why we have this article here, to explore the merits and failings of Unity 8, and see whether we should be really afraid this may become the default and only choice for our desktops one day. Which it might. So read carefully.

The drug name is Contrave. Using two separate drugs to shed weight can be very effective you can find combinations before the FDA now awaiting approval. When dealing with fat loss and the people that go through it you ought to err to the side of caution and let the FDA do its job and demand some study be done in order that the public understands the side effects and dangers of the medications before we bring them. Keep in mind that drug companies will be in business to generate income and that they would say almost anything to keep people on his or her medications. Researchers found out that participants taking this drug for the year, dropped excess weight within one month and have kept the weight off through the entire 56 weeks from the study. Contrave can be a combination from the drugs naltrexone and bupropion, which seems to reflect a whole new trend of weight-loss drugs that are made up of several active ingredient, which may make them more efficient and safer. Combo-pilling may be the newest fad or also the newest in the future under scrutiny and so it is just more publicly known in recent months, comb-pilling for weight loss has been around since the eighties. The biggest reason that employing a combination of pills is starting to become popular will be the fact that since right now there aren't long term prescription weight loss supplements that have been authorized by the FDA besides orlistat. The truly disturbing part is that doctors are prescribing these combinations of medications even though some of the combinations happen to be rejected or have yet to be authorized by the FDA. Seizures certainly are a side effect with Contrave and mustn't be taken in individuals with seizure disorders. The drug may also raise blood pressure and heartrate, and really should not be used in individuals with a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months. Blood pressure and pulse should also be measured before commencing the drug and throughout therapy using the drug. The FDA also warned that Contrave can raise hypertension and heart rate and must not be used in patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure levels, in addition to by you are not heart-related and cerebrovascular (circulation system dysfunction impacting mental performance) disease. Patients using a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months, life-threatening arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure were excluded through the clinical trials. Those taking Contrave should have their heart-rate and pulse monitored regularly. In addition, considering that the compound includes bupropion, Contrave comes having a boxed warning to alert health care professionals and patients to the increased probability of suicidal thoughts and behaviors related to antidepressant drugs. The warning also notes that serious neuropsychiatric events are actually reported in patients taking bupropion for quitting smoking. The course of recovery, even for those using the medications, centers more about talk and much less on pills because while drugs like acamprosate and naltrexone help change brain chemistry, they just don't change minds. Once you adopt away the alcohol, sometimes using the successful usage of prescribed medicine, the minds still need work. Alcoholics who slip in recovery and non-alcoholics drink for fundamentally the same reason: It relieves social/physical/emotional tension. With alcoholics however, their own health are programmed differently genetically and react to drinking with more drinking. So counseling or even a 12-step meeting helps those abstinent keep from using the first drink. Recovery has very little to do with stopping the drinking and the ones successful in recovery admit they're success is founded on learning or relearning the way to manage life's tensions.
