Linux flavours in businesses

Reddit - 2 hours 55 min ago

I'm often seeing jobs advertise that they use linux in their production systems, which is great, but there's always a something in brackets following it. For example "(centos)"

Why are places getting so hung up on a specific distro of linux being on their systems ?

Creating Live USB stick on Arch Linux won't work

Reddit - Sun, 2017-11-19 18:32

I have some problems with my Windows PC. I want to diagnose it and decided to create a Live USB Stick with some Linux like SystemRescueCD or Ultimate Boot CD. I have a Laptop with Arch Linux installed, so I need to do it there.

But whatever image I paste to the USB stick, it won't work. As soon as I boot from the USB-stick I get:

"this is not a bootable disk. please insert a bootable floppy and press any key to try again"

I have done it like this way: http://www.system-rescue-cd.org/Installing-SystemRescueCd-on-a-USB-stick/

Budget hackable mobile device for Linux?

Reddit - Sun, 2017-11-19 18:28

So I’m currently a Mac/iPhone/iPad user (boooo, non-GPL, I know) with an Arch desktop at home that I don’t use that often because it’s a desktop and I’m always out somewhere. I don’t want to mess with my Macbook, as it’s my primary “work” machine, i.e. not for experimentation. However, I am raring to screw around and learn the innards of Linux on a cheap, mobile device, roughly phablet to small tablet sized, that I can ideally connect to external devices (keyboard, display, USB disks) and install x86 Unix/Linuxes on.

Any suggestions?

A soft push for the fairer sex

TuxMachines - Sun, 2017-11-19 18:08

International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS), an autonomous institution under Government of Kerala and Society for Promotion of Alternative Computing and Employment (SPACE), an NGO promoting free software, have been conducting ‘Women Hackers,’ a project to bring more women into free software. The programme involves intensive residential workshops on college campuses.

It was during one such hackathon that the idea for ‘I install’ was put forward by the students of LBS College of Engineering, Kasaragod. A GNU/Linux installation camp, the event aims to promote the idea of taking control over the technology that you use. Those students who received training at the hackathon will be part of ‘I install’ where they impart their learning to other students.
