Red Hat loading issues.

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-09 06:44

Morning! I am attempting to fire up an old Compaq Presario 1220 laptop. My brother has the OS set as Red Hat, not sure of the version.
It popped up with an initial error to fix the date and time in the BIOS. Done.

After loading initial Compaq screen, it shows the normal Red Hat screen. I can either wait for loading scripts Or I can hit control-x for text mode.

After the loading screen credits it says "Welcome to Red Hat Linux. Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
Mounting proc file system: [ok] Configuring kernel parameters: [ok]

I have done as directed to no avail. Any suggestions. Mind you, it has been ages since I worked with Linux.

My 10 year old son screamed with excitement after seeing the word kernel. He is expecting a popcorn game inside.

I have not gotten any womans number from using Linux, even if I tell them I use Arch Linux they do not seem impressed. How many numbers have you gotten and what distro sealed the deal?

I just bricked my first linux system

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-09 06:26

And i feel pretty dumb. But I'm kind of glad it happened. Learning this OS feels like solving a puzzle, and now that I've screwed up, I'm back to the beginning with a better idea of what to do.

Just felt like sharing this. Seemed like a milestone in a weird way.

There are no open source phones (software and hardware) correct?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-09 05:44

From my understanding Openmoko phones are not available anymore, and the boards have been out of stock for more than a year. The only other phone I can think of is the upcoming Neo900 which will be around $700 which is way out of my budget. Im looking for dumb and smart phone projects. Openmoko seems like what I want but I cant get the parts.

The most important Firefox command line options

LXer - Mon, 2017-10-09 04:41
The following guide lists important command line options for Firefox. It is not a complete list of all available options, as many are used only for specific purposes that have little to no value to users of the browser.

How do I get updates to Libreoffice via command?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-09 04:15

Hi I tried getting libroffice update via its settings and followed its instructions but it seems to be wrong as I can’t find what it claims.

So is there a command line to check updates for specific programs I can do?

Thank you in advance.

Dream Backup Solution [Question]

Reddit - Mon, 2017-10-09 03:34

Sup Nix'ers,

So, question is; if you own a server, what would be some of the most desirable traits that you would look for in an external backup solution? (not looking for internal server solutions, self backup options or big player outlines) To clarify, if you had the choice of any options you could think of (price is no object) what would you look for in: a service, options, price range, security features, UI/UX or anything else you can think of... Hard, honest answers would be appreciated...
