(Subgraph community isn’t that much) help.

2 hours 7 min ago

Want to dual boot with sub graph, so I used Rufus and tried to do graphical install until it said unable to install from a media drive, so I downloaded usb Linux installer (forgot the name) and it had the option to boot with grub so I choose it when my computer boot up it said failed and gave me a link to get a download (idk what grub does and should I use it with or without iso). And is there a way to fix my earlier problem? Thanks.

Question: How to do experiments to better understand Linux system performance?

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 20:03

There are a lot of metrics (memory usage, system load, disk system usage, interrupts, entropy available, ...) that one can read off a working Linux system.

I am very intrigued by the idea of running experiments to text how a Linux system reacts to different factors. However, I do not have a lot of ideas about what I should be toying with.

I have a home server, and I monitor how running services, SSHing, and high performance computations (e.g. compiling) affects it. What else can I do?

In fact, is there a way I could access a larger system to play with? Are there disciplines that study those things?

A very specific situation...

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 18:07

I’m not having any technical issues I just want to know how to do something very specific. I want to do something along the lines of echo -n randomword(every 4 digit number) | sha265sum > file.txt. How could I do this, I’m a bit new to linux so try not to include complex scripts.

Happy birthday to a pioneer of the free software movement, Richard Stallman!

I wonder where the state of software would be today without him.

Dell Latitude D630 Linux recommendations

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 16:20


I have had this laptop for around 10 years now, it's currently running kali-linux which I feel is a bit heavy and making it sluggish. I was thinking of installing Arch and a light WM (which one?) - any recommendations on that? It currently has 4GB RAM and the Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz proc. I don't know if I should upgrade to an SSD as well since it's so old that I'm not sure if there will be a real speed boost.

Completely Headless Firewall Distro, with OpenVPN ?

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 15:16

Hi guys, I have a PC that the video card ( internal is busted ), and it's an old OLD box that only takes AGP or PCI video cards ( and I have non ) so I thought I could make it a firewall box, and use it for OPENVPN, I've tried pfsense, but at the end it did not run because I had to setup the ethernet so it got messy, so is there a distro like a router where you connect the cables and manage it all from a web server ? Thanks !

TIL that Linus Torvalds makes more in Salary than Jim Zemlin, contrary to another post

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 14:16

Another post on this subreddit claims that Jim/James Zemlin makes more than Linus according to a tax filing. The reference is a video from Bryan Lunduke. I like Bryan Lunduke a lot, hell I was even a patreon supporter for a period when I could afford it, but I think his video is actually wrong. Look at the tax document Bryan is referencing. In his video, Bryan is hiding the column for other compensation.

  • Jim/James Zemlin - 608,000 + 37,017 = 645,017
  • Linus Torvalds - 451,672 + 281,921 = 733,593

If you include all the compensation that they make, Linus makes more than Jim.

It's good to know how our charitable donations get spent, though I'm sure that Jim and Linus really hate that we're talking so much about this. I'm not a huge fan of the Linux Foundation, though out of respect for the individuals I'm going to delete this post in a couple days. I hope the OP for the other post will do the same.

What is your setup?

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 12:01

Is there a sub/community where people share their linux setups? I don't mean like r/unixporn but more along the lines of partitioning, filesystems, local and remote storage, personalised scripts and workflows. Basically what is your environement like? I would be keen to test out some more exotic setups in a VM as a learning experience and would be keen to hear how people have customised their systems. Cheers
