Linux greybeards release beta of systemd-free Debian fork

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-04-29 10:21

The effort to create a systemd-free Debian fork has borne fruit, with a beta of “Devuan Jessie” appearing in the wild.

Devuan came into being after a rebellion by a self-described “Veteran Unix Admin collective” argued that Debian had betrayed its roots and was becoming too desktop-oriented. The item to which they objected most vigorously was the inclusion of the systemd bootloader. The rebels therefore decided to fork Debian and “preserve Init freedom”. The group renamed itself and its distribution “Devuan” and got work, promising a fork that looked, felt, and quacked like Debian in all regards other than imposing systemd as the default Init option.

[Help] Linux headset

Reddit - Fri, 2016-04-29 03:51

I am trying to get my bluetooth headset working as the input/output device in kali linux 2.0

Bluetooth is running, it picks up and connects to the headset without issue, but when I get to sound settings, the only option for input or output device is the built in speakers for my laptop.

Anyone have any idea how I can get my headset to display as an input/output device? i've tested on more than one headset and it is the same result.

I've posted in the kalilinux subreddit however it is simply unpopular to be honest.
