Linux laptops with Fedora pre-installed?

Fri, 2018-03-09 19:03

Can anyone recommend a laptop vendor that offers option to have Fedora pre-installed?

System76 & Dell seem to offer only Ubuntu or derivatives.

Printer Drivers

Fri, 2018-03-09 18:08

Every single printer that my family seems to get doesn't have an officially supported drivers, we recently got an HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw.

I haven't found a 3rd party driver for it either, but that could just me being bad at searching for it.

Is there a good tutorial on how to make my own driver

Linux Fundamentals

Fri, 2018-03-09 17:21

So I'm a network engineer with a reasonable background in Linux. I use it a lot at home and have used it pretty extensively in my current and past jobs. I just recently applied for a Linux System Administrator job which is far more heavily focused on Linux than networking. I did well in the interview with the exception of some of the fundamentals that I should have known, but didn't because I don't use this information on a daily basis (ie. the boot process of linux, the process of creating SSL certs and SSH keys, etc.)

For you Linux gurus, what are some bare bones fundamentals that you think that EVERY Linux professional should know. Up to this point I've just been learning as I go and I've done pretty well but I'd like to get back to learning the fundamentals that everyone should know and then start to build up from there.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Custom Linux Distribution

Fri, 2018-03-09 16:40

I had two friends ask me last night about possibly financing a project they have been interested in for some time & the project really caught my ear. I am just starting to do my research to understand all aspects of this possible investment. This project is outside my expertise, so I am going to ask some very basic questions. I am an entrepreneur with an issue on a project I am researching & considering investing into. With out going into much detail & sharing the entire concept for the entire world to see, this project could have an enormous impact for a large & marginalized population- specifically prisoners in the US. One of the things that my project would need is a custom Linux OS build. I have serious safety & security concerns… I don’t want the product to be broken down into weapons or have the device used for purposes it was not intended for or to bypass correctional facility rules/regulations. I am simply the finance for this project & the hardware is being handled by two life long friends. I would prefer to hire a third party for the OS because I would like to control some rights to this distribution.
Building a custom Linux OS from scratch & to my specific specifications would be above my current abilities. Which leaves me with two options that I can see. 1. Try to find a distribution that best fits my specification (from the 1,000+ distributions already available) & hire a 3rd party to modify it to my specifications. 2. Hire a third party to build my own distribution that meet my specific specifications. Where can I turn to find & hire a third party whom could help build from scratch or modify an existing distribution? What would my costs look like (VERY rough idea) & how long should I expect to be spending time wise on this aspect of the project?

stop hidden files written by different apps in directory

Fri, 2018-03-09 15:12

continually deleting .swp files , save files from nano etc cos I never exit correctly. . I want to stop hidden files of any type being written to a specific directory

they're irritating .. I don't need any 'recovery' from the nano text editor.
