Wed, 2018-08-15 12:14

Just got handed a new Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 and the first thing I plan to do is install Linux.

I’ve been a Linux user for years, but wondering if the hive mind has any tips for the install. What say you?

wont the removal of lustre hurt linux with supercomputers?

Wed, 2018-08-15 08:45

In the recent kernel release lustre was removed. lustre was a filesystem for supercomputer architectures and environments.

Won't this hurt linux? or are there alternatives? Is anyone here, who can tell how supercomputers and their filesystems are build/constructed/implemented (on an engineer/admin view) nowadays?

Linux Unit in H.S.

Wed, 2018-08-15 05:28

Hello, I am a high school engineering teacher, and I want my students to get familiar with Linux through a unit of study in our class. I already have some laptops, desktops, and internet access ready for them, and I want to do the unit some time before winter break. I also have around a dozen or so complete sets worth of miscellaneous computer parts, and lots of cases. I am pretty familiar with Ubuntu in the GUI and basically a beginner in the terminal, although I have used the terminal a lot to get things done on a computer.

Anyone want to throw some cool project ideas, or maybe some progression of topics you can think of? I guess the end goal of the unit is to have them be able to make a USB install media, install Ubuntu, set up a user, install Chrome, and send an email. I also found and 'Bandit' on .

Netgear A7000

Wed, 2018-08-15 01:08

So I have a netgear A7000 I use for getting Internet to one of my machines. I've come to realize that there are no Linux drivers for this device. (There's one unofficial driver for it, sadly it does not work) I'm wondering if there's any way I could get this adapter to work on Ubuntu 18.04.1? Either some work around or a way to get the windows / osx drivers to work in Linux? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Any projects working on combining different Linux-based AV Rescue CDs?

Tue, 2018-08-14 23:09

I've been working on a program which will automatically test and clean an offline system (usually Windows) using multiple AV scanners and I've been frustrated with non-commercial Windows scanners available. Then I realized that most popular AVs use Linux for their AV Rescue CDs. I've taken a look and can make some of the scanners work in an live environment like SystemRescueCD's just by copying the files from /opt/. Before I give myself yet another personal project to play with I was curious if there's any known projects out there like this still in development? The only one I know of was Trinity Rescue Kit.

Thinking about switching to Linux

Tue, 2018-08-14 18:37

Since I got my PC in late 2016, I hated using microsoft's windows 10 for reasons such as the ads in the start menu or windows update. I was wondering, is there a way of playing games like overwatch and GTA 5 on Linux ?
