Looking for a file manager.

Just upgraded to Arch and remembered how much I hated the built-in file manager in pretty much every distro I've ever tried, but honestly, it's an issue I've never tackled either so what file manager would you all recommend?

Linux users urged to protect against 'Dirty COW' security flaw

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-10-21 02:12

Organisations and individuals have been urged to patch Linux servers immediately or risk falling victim to exploits for a Linux kernel security flaw dubbed ‘Dirty COW'.

This follows a warning from open source software vendor Red Hat that the flaw is being exploited in the wild.

Phil Oester, the Linux security researcher who uncovered the flaw, explained to V3 that the exploit is easy to execute and will almost certainly become more widely used.

"The exploit in the wild is trivial to execute, never fails and has probably been around for years - the version I obtained was compiled with gcc 4.8," he said.

Leslie Zhai Talks 20 Years of KDE in China

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-10-21 02:06

In 2002, as a computer science major university student, I went to a Legal Authoried software store in Wuhan, Guangputun, and bought Redhat7 including four install CDs, three src.rpm CDs and a very exquisite user manual for only RMB 50, because other software for Windows 98 was too expensive to a univerty student! It was my first time to use KDE 3. Yes I chose KDE as my default desktop enviroment, but I tried GNOME of course. Then I tried to migrate my university's course assignment developed in Turbo C to compile with GCC. I used Konsole and VIM to edit my source code, I tried Emacs but I did not know how to make coffee with it, so I switched to VIM and my teachers switched to use Redhat8 instead of Windows 98 when teaching operating system courses.
