Best Linux distro for laptops with Intel Celeron

Fri, 2018-06-08 10:46

Greetings. I have my younger brother's Asus E202SA laptop which he bought back in 2015 and no longer in use. It is powered by Intel Celeron processor.

It came with Windows 10 out of the box. As much as I deeply love Windows 10, it was running effingly slow. Even with Windows 8.1 installed, things didn't get any better significantly.

Since I'm familiar with Linux, I wonder which distro works best with Celeron.

What does /r/Linux community think about the future of Docker?

Fri, 2018-06-08 10:35

It has been very popular lately, has a ton of features, but I'm still not sure whether it does more good or harm if you consider the overall app deployment and configuration process. Is "containerizing" apache, php and mysql into separate docker containers and bundling the whole thing as a deployment really a step forward than how we traditionally used to deploy lamp apps?

Going forward, do you think docker will increase or decrease in prominence for server side linux and devops?

What are the possibilities in the future, that a Windows admin is a valuable job than a Linux Admin? What is more valuable for a career in System Administration? submitted by /u/dhanika95

How to forbid connections from a set of IPs (CentOS)?

Fri, 2018-06-08 08:23


We're running a CentOS 5.6 production server which has to be stopped and started several times during upgrade procedure. Yes, we sent notification to all users to tell them not to use it at upgrade time, but there is always some smartass who tries it anyway. In short, I'd like to temporary ban all IPs except few who are participating in upgrade procedure (it would be unwise to ban meself, for example! :) ).

Coming to Linux via Ubuntu 18.04 from not being a Linux user previously, I've had a really good experience and quite enjoyed Gnome. It seems like Gnome gets criticised a lot here, however, and I'm curious as to why. Can someone educate me?

Fri, 2018-06-08 08:11

I've been primarily on Windows for the last few years, and I've made the switch to Ubuntu 18.04 now that I don't game anywhere near as much as I used to. The experience has been quite a stable one, and I really like the UI.

As a lurker on /r/linux, I get the impression that there isn't universal praise, and there is a lot of talk of "politics", but I've never understood the details.

Microsoft has not embraced open source

Fri, 2018-06-08 05:05

Is Microsoft open sourcing Word ? No. Is Microsoft open sourcing Windows ? No. Because Linux and Writer are open source. If it isn’t, then Microsoft has NOT embraced open source.

What's the right way to run an acpi_listen event script as non root?

Fri, 2018-06-08 03:30

The headphone jack does not get assigned the right profile in my laptop. The profile should be digital, but it always get set to analog-stereo. I have made a keyboard shortcut with ‘pacmd set-card-profile’ to reroute it properly, but I would like to automate this. I tried setting up an acpi_listen event for headphone jack plugged, but the pacmd command fails because it’s not supposed to run as root. I tried sudo to my user in the shell script, but that didn’t work. What is the right way to implement what I’m trying to do?
