Looking for resources to become more familiar with terminology and concepts.

Command Line - 1 hour 22 min ago

So I am more or less a complete beginner when it comes to anything command line. I just really understood what a "shell" even is earlier today. I am finding it hard to keep all the different aspects of this topic straight. For example, I have been googling definitions for: shell, git, git bash, MinGW, powerShell, command line, etc. As well as trying to learn the basics of Linux/Unix environments. Basically, I don't know how to keep anything straight in my head, and haven't drawn the "mental borders" so to speak, for each concept. Does anyone know of any good resources that compile a lot of this knowledge/info? I have been doing my due diligence in reading and researching myself, but I've come to the point where each search leads to 3 more, and so on.

Any stories of your personal journeys in this field would also be appreciated! It just feels so binary from my perspective, like people already know everything or they know nothing. Just trying to break through!

winbind or sssd for Samba AD member and why?

So, I am going to implement a Samba AD DC server. We also have a handful of Samba file servers which are going to be AD member servers.

The Samba wiki still say, you should use winbind for auth stuff against AD. But I heard from several sources, that the cool kids are using sssd nowadays.

Why is that? And do I have stable uid/gid mapping across the entire domain (we going to use RFC2307)? I heard, that id mapping can be messy with sssd.

Or should I use winbind for stability reasons?

How can I display the android emulater in a browser window?

Developing Android Apps - 1 hour 47 min ago

Does anyone have any idea how I can display the Android Studio emulator inside a public facing web page similar to what some of the app building websites do?

Sites like appypie and buildfire are able to let users build in the browser and then test a running mobile app in the user's browser. Anyone know how they achieve this?

Thanks for any help.

Stop snapd services to control snap updates

Linux - 1 hour 49 min ago

It has recently come to my attention that ubuntu snap updates are controlled exclusively by the snap developer (i.e. users don't have complete control over updates, by design). To regain control over the snap update process, stop all relevant snapd units (services, timers, etc). Don't forget to restart these units if you want auto updates to resume.

Curiosity : where do you install SDK ? on ssd or on hdd ?

Developing Android Apps - 1 hour 52 min ago

Hi ! I'm so curious ! We all know that the SDK takes up a lot of space on our hard disk. Where do you install it ? On primary ssd or on a second hdd ? Currently I have installed it on the primary SSD , but i'm wondering if install It on the hdd compromise build performance or not.. mmm..

There are a lot of things to learn as a professional Android Developer, I feel like I'm lost..

Developing Android Apps - 2 hours 32 min ago

I started working as a fresh CS graduate Android Developer a few months ago, I can make apps using Java , I know how to write clean code with proper naming conventions or how to debug properly etc. Last month I started to learn Kotlin, It's pretty easy to pickup but then I found out about Dart and Flutter.... I was learning about reactive programming, RxJava, RxAndroid or RxKotlin, then Kotlin coroutines came out... I was so used to Butterknife but then Data binding became a thing... then people started to use Kotlin Anko... I can't even understand Dagger or MVP but people started using MVVM+LiveData.... Yesterday I saw an article about Android Jetpack and Android APK Bundle... seriously I can't even follow anymore, I'm lost and depressed, I don't want to loose my job. Is there a website to learn every new Android thing:(

RISCV accelerates Linux adoption on PCs

Linux - 2 hours 37 min ago

I feel, One of the reason for dominance of windows in desktop market is due to the popularity (monopoly?) of x86 architecture. With the arrival of ARM processors, Microsoft lost grip on the mobile segment completely.

RISCV Will most likely bring more adoption of Linux on desktops & laptops as it loyality free, Which makes possible to produce more cheaper laptops & desktops. These things need an operating system to run & Linux is will be the choice of ODMs & thus gains popularity eventually.

What do you think?

Serious doubt over the Android One program - Nokia 7 Plus still on 8.0 February 1st update in the UK

Android - 3 hours 9 min ago

I got the Nokia 7 Plus (unlocked from Amazon) on the promise of regular and fast updates, but it's not the case. There's plenty of people complaining about it:

Seems to be tied to sim cars perhaps? People have said factory resetting and removing the sim card will get you the update, as well as swapping out an EE sim (which people are saying are blocking the update) for another network will also get you the update. I was hoping that Android One would work independent of the carriers but this doesn't seem to be the case...

Do you guys have an "Emergency" plan?

Android - 3 hours 14 min ago

Hey guys, does any of you have a backup way to get in touch with someone when you use a password handler (i.e. lastpass, dashlane, etc) and let's assume your device gets taken (just happened to a friend of mine)?

So what I mean is this: like I said, a friend of mine had this happen to her (she was mugged & attacked) and somebody lent her a phone but she didn't know any of the phone #'s so she did the next best thing she could think about and she just signed into her Fb account.

Cool, that worked for her, however, it got me thinking. If something like that were to happen to me (knock on wood), I can't get into my Fb account because it's using 2FA for which I'd need my phone...then I realized I'd be locked out. I do know some phone #'s but if I'm out (say traveling) then those might not be helpful. So now I don't know how I'd handle this kind of situation.
