Problems installing Linux on my Laptop

Reddit - Wed, 2017-06-28 11:29

I have OpenSuse Tumbleweed installed on my Laptop and systemd hangs at "Create Volatile Files and Directories". Because I wasn't able to fix this and because I don't have anything important on that machine I tried a fresh installation of Tumbleweed from an USB Stick but it fails with "Kernel panic: No working init found". As I said there is nothing I need on that machine I just want a working operating system. Has anyone an idea?

Looking for an Ubuntu Unity close cousin? Elementary, my dear...

TuxMachines - Wed, 2017-06-28 11:10

Ubuntu's Unity interface is gone, which means there's one less desktop to choose from in Linux-land. And while dozens remain to choose from, Unity was one of the most polished out there. Many will miss its detail and design.

Why The Ubuntu Phone Failed

TuxMachines - Wed, 2017-06-28 10:57

In April 2017, Canonical's Mark Shuttleworth announced that their support of the Ubuntu phone convergence was no longer something they were going to invest in. Looking back on this decision, I can understand where they were coming from. Let's face it, we live in an Android/iOS landscape and all other entries into this space are just spinning their wheels.

Considering other projects that failed to garner needed traction such as WebOS, Firefox OS, among others, it's understandable why Canonical decided to refocus their efforts into other areas. Well, at least with cloud services. I differ with them on IoT and believe they're destined to repeat mistakes found with convergence.

Intel Core i9 7900X Linux Benchmarks

TuxMachines - Wed, 2017-06-28 10:55

Since the Intel Core-X Series were announced last month at Computex, I've been excited to see how well this high-end processor will perform under Linux... Linux enthusiasts have plenty of highly-threaded workloads such as compiling the Linux kernel, among other packages, and thus have been very excited by the potential of the Core i9 7900X with its ten cores plus Hyper Threading and sporting a 13.75MB cache. With finally having an X299 motherboard ready, here are my initial Ubuntu Linux benchmarks for the i9-7900X.
