What is the most stable mini-PCIe WiFi interface for Linux?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-07-24 14:40

I currently have an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205, but it sometimes completely disables itself with only option being a reboot. So now I'm looking for a replacement and was wondering what the most stable WiFi interface I could get.

I don't really care if there's no 802.11ac, just N is fine. Preferably with MIMO 2x2 or better.

I don't know how I should feel about what I have done.

Reddit - Mon, 2017-07-24 14:02

As a rule of my own I donate about 10% of my total income. I mainly donated to groups like local animal rescue team and Medecins Sans Frontieres, and I was a godfather of 3 African kids. Not much money, but I've done it since when I started my first job, 6 years ago.

Than I came across to this reddit post few months ago. It hit me so hard. I love Linux. I love open source software. I sometimes don't, but mostly love the community and I always wished I could code well enough to make some contributions. But I don't code well, I am better of leaving developers alone than making useless pull requests.

Long story short, now most of my donation money goes to support open source. Again, not much money, but they are monthly donations. I don't know how I should feel about this change. I was always thankful about developers and happy to support their awesome projects, but at the same time I had to cancel all but one previous monthly donations. Today I got a mail from one of my formal godsons and it broke my heart.

Huge differences in RAM consuption across different OS's

Reddit - Mon, 2017-07-24 13:38

I've tried MATE under FreeBSD and Ubuntu-MATE and these are the figures: -FreeBSD11.0, mate 1.12, RAM consumption: ~150MB. -Ubuntu-MATE 17.04, MATE 1.18, Ram consumption ~540MB. Why such a huge disparity in RAM usage?! I removed startup apps from Ubuntu such as the automatic updater and Blue tooth man and still got Ubuntu-MATE to eat up 490MB RAM. Is this discrepancy because of using versions 1.12 and 1.18 of MATE?! What the hell is going on?

ps: these RAM figures were obained by starting up both systems and inspecting the respective gnome-system-monitor apps, without running anything else. Checking the usage by process, Ubuntu MATE has a lot more tiny kb processes going on than FreeBSD. However, the processes that take more RAM are the same, CAJA, Gnome-system-monitor, ... I wonder if all this tiny kb processes are essential and could add up to 300MB?!

    The last month was not easy. Some things had to be re-written because they were not very well written. For example, I wrote a system of “sensors”, the logic of which was laid in the destructors of objects. This is a non-obvious logic of work, it had to be rewritten.

  • Polkit Support in KIO - Progess so far

    In this post I intend to report the whereabouts of my project. First of all me not posting any updates about my project was due to two problems that showed up when I was two weeks into the coding period. One, which I had anticipated, was to decide from where to show a warning dialog during the brief period of time when privileges are elevated. The problem was that showing the prompt from KIO::Slave resulted in repetition and to show it from KIO::JobUiDelegate permissions of destination folder was needed beforehand which required additional computation. So for this I decided to add a signal in KIO::Slave and all the necessary code for additional prompts in KIO::Job. This way the KIO slave emits the signal whenever it encounters ACCESS DENIED error and then job decides whether or not to show the prompt. The other problem was to figure out how to modify files created by a privileged process by an underprivileged one. By the way the latter was completely uncalled-for and it took me around two weeks to decide on a solution. To send data between processes I tried every possible IPC mechanism involving shared memory, pipes and sockets. At last I decided on sharing file descriptor between the privileged and under-privileged process and to accomplish that I used Unix local domain sockets.
