Mastering ATA over Ethernet

LXer - Thu, 2017-05-25 07:21
At one point in time, when you wanted to attach an external block storage device to aserver, you mapped it as a Logical Unit (LU) across a Storage Area Network (SAN). Inthe early days, you would do this over the Fibre Channel (FC) protocol. More recently,iSCSI (SCSI over IP) has usurped FC in most data centers.

LinuxAndUbuntu Distro Review Of The Week - Deepin OS

TuxMachines - Thu, 2017-05-25 06:46

​Depth/Deepin OS is not just another Linux Distro, but one with something new to show. Deepin OS is simply speaking, just beautiful. Deepin OS, formerly known as Deepin, Linux Deepin, and Hiweed GNU/Linux is a Linux distro with an identity crisis. Seriously, this distro has undergone name changes you always have to check twice if the name is still the same. And that is all the negative you are going to say about this distro. Honestly speaking, Deepin OS is surely going to blow you away. I have been keeping an eye on this distro since 2013 and it still manages to impress me.

Best Practices for 2-Factor Authentication and Password Creation on Linux

LXer - Thu, 2017-05-25 06:07
As we mentioned in the previous article, web browsers present the largest and the most exposed attack surface on your Linux workstation. We’ve already discussed some best practices that Linux sysadmins can follow to reduce the impact of a compromised browser, such as upgrading to Wayland, using a different browser for work/high-security sites, and using Firejail to create a sandbox around Linux applications.

ISP cache cause apt update failed

Reddit - Thu, 2017-05-25 04:49

I live in China, few days ago 'sudo apt update' goes error like below logs, after I force apt update via a secure proxy in Japan, apt update success with no errors , and 32 more 'new' updates.

So I guess:
1. my ISP (China Telecom) has cached those files, but has a much lower update frequency.
2. something goes wrong when they cache files from upstream. (cause me to update failed).

some other users said that China Unicom also cache HTTP files. and that may cause problems.
reference link (Chinese): https://www.v2ex.com/t/363571

SO, I think its time to consider using https for Linux udpate?
you may say ISP cache those files is for "good" purpose to save bandwidth etc, but what if they want to do something else? and that has cause problem now.

error logs:
' E: Failed to fetch http://cn.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/xenial-updates/main/dep11/icons-64x64.tar Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/cn.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_xenial-updates_main_dep11_icons-64x64.tar.gz - open (13: Permission denied)

Clearly Adobe can release some form of running Creative Cloud on *nix system and still charge people license for it, why do they drop Linux users?

Reddit - Thu, 2017-05-25 03:39

Sad when you need terminal + Adobe and the only choice you have is that expensive-af Mac line. I mean, clearly Adobe can release some form of software and still charge people money right? MATLAB, others have been able to do this.

Are we popular enough for Adobe to care, though?

And also I am aware of GIMP and Inkscape, but they are again just GIMP and Inkscape. There are reasons why Photoshop and Illustrator are still go-to for content creators.
