I'm using the Virtual Machine Manager GUI to test different features, and I noticed that on my install of CentOS 7, the VMM is missing the box for "Kickstart URL" when I select a Network Install for a new VM and expand "URL Options" under the first URL box for the OS.
I was trying to follow the documentation for RHEL 7.
I installed a copy of RHEL 7 to see if the Kickstart URL box was there and it was. I thought CentOS 7's VMM was identical to RHEL 7's, or am I missing something? I'm still able to use virt-install on CentOS 7 to install the VM with kickstart.submitted by /u/mars_ignis
Just bought a new PC, machine came without an OS, just like I wanted.
Installed Xubuntu 16.10 as I normally would, but the mouse pointer is stuck in the top left hand corner. It is really strange because the mouse works the pointer just does not move, I can navigate around the screen and click and interact with objects. But obviously not well since I have to guess where it is.
I tried a live Fedora 25 workstation one the machine and got the exact same result.
Switched to a completely different mouse and having the same problem.
Mouse works fine in the BIOS, just not the OS, both nice also work just fine on a Windows box I have. I should mention both nice are wired USB.
I am completely stuck here any ideas?submitted by /u/powertoast
Web server NGINX powers more than 317 million sites around the globes, and has rapidly replaced Apache as the engine of choice for the world's 100,000 busiest, counting Netflix, Airbnb and Dropbox among its high-profile clients.

NGINX began life as a web server written by a Russian engineer called Igor Syosev in 2002 while he was working as a system administrator for the portal site Rambler.
The hostname is used to identify the server when connected on a network and it is configured during the initial server setup.

Once day after the release of the GNOME 3.24 Beta desktop environment, the developers behind the GNOME Builder IDE (Integrated Development Environment) announced the release of a first Beta build towards the next major version of the application.
Today's Beta milestone (technical version number is 3.23.90) is also the first development release of GNOME Builder 3.24, which means that we can finally get a taste of what's coming next in the IDE.

If you're a small business looking to take the next step in your evolution, you may be looking at implementing a customer relationship management (or CRM) solution. But with enterprise-grade vendors like Oracle and Salesforce charging such a high premium for their services, how can smaller companies afford to get started with CRM software?
The answer lies in open source. As with many kinds of software, there are multiple vendors who provide open source CRM solutions that are completely free to use. They may have restrictions on them, such as limited features and support, but for small businesses looking to try out CRM, they can be an excellent starting point.
Adoption of free software applications in the public and private sectors in the Sultanate was one of the recommendations of the just concluded Free and Open Source Software Conference.

After being in development for the past two weeks, IPFire 2.19 Core Update 109 has today hit the stable channel and it's a recommended upgrade for all those who use the IPFire 2.19 series of the open-source, Linux-based firewall distro.
As noted in our previous report, the most important feature of IPFire 2.19 Core Update 109 is the inclusion of the unbound 1.6.0 recursive and caching DNS resolver in the distro's built-in DNS proxy to address some important bugs, re-activate QNAME minimisation and hardening below NX domains, and implement the ability for the firewall to check if a router loses longer DNS responses.
With last weekend mentioning ten exciting features of Linux 4.10, the tables have turned and now we are looking at ten features not found in the mainline our complete Linux 4.10 feature overview for all of the great stuff shipping in this kernel that should be out on Sunday. You may consider this article now as a bit of satire with some of these features weren't expected to appear in Linux 4.10 in the first place, but I am just mentioning several things that aren't in Linux 4.10 but some users would have found nice if they in fact happened.
