(Subgraph community isn’t that much) help.

Sat, 2018-03-17 05:18

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?

Sat, 2018-03-17 01:03

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, 2018-03-16 23:07

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.

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

Dell Latitude D630 Linux recommendations

Fri, 2018-03-16 21:20


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, 2018-03-16 20:16

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 !
