dnsmasq redirect all domain requests to local web server

Reddit - 1 hour 3 min ago

I have configured dnsmasq using address=/#/ to redirect urls like google.com, foo.com. But I also want to redirect such as requests from browsers when you enter a keyword and enter i.e https://www.google.com/?search= to redirect to my local web server. Basically I want all request to return back to my http web page until they read the terms and conditions for using my wireless network.

Linux 4.9-rc8

TuxMachines - 3 hours 31 min ago

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no
surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been
bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made
me go "no point in doing another week".

Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying
"modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it
to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding
a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We
already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know
exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.

Linux 4.9-rc8 Kernel Released

Phoronix - Sun, 2016-12-04 22:36

SD corrupted any good advice how to get info off?

Reddit - Sun, 2016-12-04 22:04

Okay so I left my sd card face up by the window and I believe the sunlight corrupted it.

I am currently using photorec to get the images off but so far it is about 50% done and hasn't found anything (card was 60% full). It has already been running for 20 hours and has an estimated 15 hours to go.

I used another software set that got a bunch of things off but it saved it all as a single .img file that was unmountable. I was unable to convert it to a .rar and extract it either.

Linux has surprisingly few option for data recovery, but I am hoping I am wrong. Help!

Xarchiver made me fail class in college.

Reddit - Sun, 2016-12-04 21:39

Long story short, my teacher wants us to send him essasys in .tar.bz2 archive. Using Xarchiver I compressed it and sent it to him a month ago. Today I have another essay to send and I noticed that after compressing my essay it has .bz2 not .tar.bz2 extension.

My teacher uses command line to extract essays for whole class so those who don't do it properly are omitted by command so my previous essay did not count which equals failing class.

I compressed new essay using tar command and it gives me .tar.bz2 properly, but as you fail when you won't send even one of three essays I just spent 8 hours of my life to know that i failed whole class.

I will never use gui archiver again.

Gnome is pretty damn quick to setup on wayland!

Reddit - Sun, 2016-12-04 18:56

So I wanted to install sway on my new laptop, but the screen was HiDPI and nothing rendered nicely. I gave in and decided I'd go with a fully fledged DE. I've been a sucker for KDE since the new plasma design, however I opted for gnome since I was using gdm to launch anyway. So after an initial issue of installing the full gnome environment (Don't try install when you're in the basic gnome environment it will break!), I cleared all the packages and gave it another go... it just worked! O.O Rendering is beautiful, all my keyboard controls work, touch screen works, audio works. The only thing I had to mess with was network manager because it has a stupid camel case service file.

Now all I have to fix is suspend, because other than that everything is working...

Except a bunch of stuff wayland makes hard but this is a dev laptop anyway so I'm not bothered. No wayland hate in the comments please!
