After about a year or so the harddrives fail. My app is streaming and writes to disk constantly, about 50 or so streams are constantly writing to disk. Getting overwritten.
Anyway, about a year and the drives fail. Is this normal? This is the first time I've had any kind of real load on a disk. Usually my home fileserver which is linux only loses a drive after about 8-10 years.submitted by /u/agentf90
I wonder if people with SSD drives could have a look at the output of hdparm -I /dev/sdX and report whether "Device Sleep (DEVSLP)" is enabled. I have two laptops and in neither of them the ssd seems to be using DEVSLP, which is a pity as it saves a lot of power.
Thanks!submitted by /u/kitestramuort
Been looking for something to waste some time with. I liked Grimrock, it was well done if a little tedious. I like the old school feel - lands of lore, stonekeep, final fantasy early games, etc. Doesn't have to be free, and I would prefer native apps instead of steam games, but that's not a dealbreaker.submitted by /u/scsibusfault
Is it possible to have an Active Directory domain trust a FreeIPA realm to allow FreeIPA users to access resources in the Active Directory domain? I'm having a hard time finding a definitive answer on this. Everything I find talks about accessing FreeIPA resources using Active Directory users.submitted by /u/med00d
I've tried a lot of DEs in the past including Unity, KDE, XFCE, LXDE and even GNOME-3. I recently tried Ubuntu-MATE for the first time however, and found this to be the most efficient and complete DE experience.
I don't know whether its the DE itself or Ubuntu customizes it that way, but being a minimalist I like the following two qualities of this DE:
I think these two features make MATE a unique DE in its own right and there is no other DE that matches MATE in this regard.submitted by /u/prahladyeri
Hello, everyone! I originally created this tool for personal use, and through the kindness of my friends, I decided to release it into the wild for anyone to use. It was born of the lack of any tool on Linux that compared to Snip for Windows for writing the metadata from media players to files so they could be used in an overlay for art or gaming streams. Since then, I now have a co-programmer, and a potential third.
Grab-Song is compatible with just about any media player that either supports MPRIS, or has a plugin for MPRIS support.
I hope this is useful to somebody out there.

For nearly everything I've tried running through wine it just doesn't work and even if it does, it's a real hack, like with photoshop, it was just terrible.
Games rarely work on wine for me. Some new error comes up. If linux worked on it's compatability with games, and windows software it could actually take over windows, but people will continue to windows because they can game, they can load things like photoshop etc. I just find next to nothing works on wine.submitted by /u/Lone_Templar
I'd really appreciate anyone expressing their opinions about the recent Skype Alpha for Linux stuff. My main worry is that I can't understand why Microsoft would all of a sudden start aggressive developing of Skype after ignoring it for years. Is it like, stuffed with spyware and stuff? I just really want to discuss it with someone. Thankssubmitted by /u/ArchLinuxAdmin
