Ubuntu 18.04 Gnome, Mint 19 Cinnamon pros and cons

Tue, 2018-07-10 09:10

I've been a long time Mint user, but now that Ubuntu 18.04 has Gnome instead of Unity, I am wondering how it compares with Mint 19 with Cinnamon. What are the pros and cons of each?

Network switch that can run pure linux based on broadcom shipset

Tue, 2018-07-10 06:11


I am looking for any network switch 12 ports+ at a reasonable cost that can run just linux nothing else preferably debian or ubuntu. Do you guys know of such a unicorn? That doesn't cost an arm and a leg (cumulus, dell, etc too expensive).

I want to run openflow and all the goodies that comes with linux without paying the high cost by openswitch vendors.

Good idea for a crowdfunding project. Please let me know if you know if it exists.

Tried installing the Ubuntu 18.04 server ISO yet?

Tue, 2018-07-10 01:10

God bless whomever made this installer, you are a sir!

It is markedly better in almost every respect to every other linux distro installer I've encountered in my life.

LiveUSB of PureOS won’t boot (Windows 8.1)

Mon, 2018-07-09 23:48


I thought i finally cracked down the distro-choice madness i threw myself into and discovered the one - PureOS, BUT when i made the live key (tried Rufus - both ISO & DD option, tried Etcher) and did everything just like the previous 25 times, it just wouldnt boot. The bootloader sees the USB but goes straight to Windows, without any sort of reference

Downloaded the ISO off of the original pureOS page multiple times, so that shouldnt be the issue

I’m using ASUS laptop from 2013

Ubuntu taking around a min to boot

Mon, 2018-07-09 19:41

I dual boot my system with Windows 10 on a SSD and Ubuntu on a 1TB HDD. I have been trying to reduce the boot time for Linux Ubuntu but it always around 45s. I have managed to get it below a minute but this 45s looks more than expected.

ambarish@aptlinux:~$ systemd-analyzeStartup finished in 4.897s (firmware) + 4.250s (loader) + 4.050s (kernel) + 34.367s (userspace) = reached after 34.330s in userspace

As a experiment, I installed Linux Mint 18.3 and the boot time was less than 30s which is pretty cool.

To me, it looks like the issue is with how Ubuntu handles the booting in itself. The plymouth service taking some time is one of them. To get rid of the dev-sda* mounts time, I installed it in a VirtualBox on the SSD and it takes almost the same time - when a Linux Mint Virtual Machine is up and running in mere 13s.

Is anyone able to boot in less than 30s,?
