Screen: Connecting to serial to ethernet -> ethernet to usb c device

Reddit - Tue, 2017-10-17 19:37

I'm trying to connect to the console port on a Dell 2816 switch. I'm using a laptop that uses a USB-C to Ethernet adapter, and the serial to Ethernet adapter that came with the switch is plugged in. I'm trying to figure out what the console redirect command is to connect to the switch. Can I get any love? Using screen on Fedora.

Image Processing on Linux

TuxMachines - Tue, 2017-10-17 17:47

I've covered several scientific packages in this space that generate nice graphical representations of your data and work, but I've not gone in the other direction much. So in this article, I cover a popular image processing package called ImageJ. Specifically, I am looking at Fiji, an instance of ImageJ bundled with a set of plugins that are useful for scientific image processing.

The name Fiji is a recursive acronym, much like GNU. It stands for "Fiji Is Just ImageJ". ImageJ is a useful tool for analyzing images in scientific research—for example, you may use it for classifying tree types in a landscape from aerial photography. ImageJ can do that type categorization. It's built with a plugin architecture, and a very extensive collection of plugins is available to increase the available functionality.

Pixel 2 and 2 XL review—The best Android phone you can buy

TuxMachines - Tue, 2017-10-17 17:39

Welcome to year two of Google Hardware. In 2016, Google jumped into the Android hardware space with its first self-branded device, the Google Pixel. Google's software prowess shined on the Pixel 1, offering up exclusive features like the Google Assistant, the best Android camera thanks to advanced software processing, fast day-one OS updates and betas, and the smoothest, best-performing overall build of Android. The killer software package made it the best Android phone of the previous generation.

The Pixel still represented Google's first foray into smartphone hardware, though, and it didn't offer anything special in the hardware department. It was a bland-looking iPhone clone. It had the same specs and basic design as everything else. The Pixel even skipped water resistance, which had become an expected feature at that price point. Google said it wanted to make its own hardware, but it didn't actually build special hardware.

Linux Capability Scheme

Reddit - Tue, 2017-10-17 17:15

Hey guys, So I've recently learned about the Linux capability scheme. I used Michael Kerrisk's The Linux Programming Interface. The book gives a meager overview of the capability scheme. It doesn't cover much about API or implementation. The further readings doesn't give any references to further resources (unlike other topics the book cover).

So here I've few questions relating to the Linux Capabilities:

  • 1) What are the other resources the (e.g. texts or online resource) other than API man pages, covers Linux Capability more vividly and API & implementation? Which text you used to learn?

  • 2) What are the advantages of capability-based programs over set-user-id programs? Why would you & how often do you use capability scheme ? (or why wouldn't ?)

  • 3) How much popular is still set-user-id environment ? Is it considered old & new programs are encouraged to use capabilities?

  • 4) [Unrelated] What are the best places [i.e internet forums] to ask this type of questions (e.g. linux related)?

Why does GNOME get so much hate?

Reddit - Tue, 2017-10-17 17:12

Reading this subreddit and other comment sections (eg omgubuntu) it seems like everybody that is not using a distro that comes with gnome by default hates it.

Is it slow? It never was for me - 200 mb of memory is perfectly ok for a DE to use IMO.

Is it the customization? It seems like it can be customized to a large extent - I can get a great looking desktop with minimal effort and next to no code (a little css to set the shell font).

What's the reason GNOME 3 gets so much hate/dislike? I understand that some people want more control (I used i3 for a year) but I don't understand why people like Unity over GNOME.
