TuxMachines - Tue, 2016-07-19 22:52

ArduCam unveiled a 24 x 24mm module with the ARM11-based core of the original Raspberry Pi, available with 36 x 36mm carriers with one or two camera links.

The promised second-generation version of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module featuring the same quad-core, 64-bit Broadcom BCM2837 SoC as the Raspberry Pi 3 will be out within a few months, according to a recent PC World interview with Raspberry Pi Foundation CEO Eben Upton. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a smaller computer-on-module version of the Raspberry Pi and are willing to settle for the old ARM11 foundation available on the current Raspberry Pi Compute Module, ArduCam could have you covered sooner.

Hi guy, I hope you will help me to solve this little problem.

Now, after an update to the linux image 3.19.0-65 the battery has a life which is half of the previous one, such a disappointment! Do you guys have had the same problems? I heard about wi fi problems and I did not had them but this battery problem is really annying.

Fedora-based Korora 24 'Sheldon' Linux distro now available -- 32-bit ISO dead

TuxMachines - Tue, 2016-07-19 20:06

While there are many Linux-based operating systems to choose from nowadays, not all of them are great. Quite frankly, there are probably only a handful of distributions that I would truly recommend.

My absolute favorite Linux-based operating system is Fedora, but understandably, it is not ideal for all beginners. While I like the focus on free software only, some folks need some non-free stuff. Adding repos and setting up some of this software can be tricky for some. Luckily, Korora is a distro that takes the work out of setting up Fedora for beginners. Today, it achieves version 24, code-named 'Sheldon'.

How can I install bc on a Raspberry Pi?

Reddit - Tue, 2016-07-19 19:49

I'm trying to run a program and when I run it I get this error:

bc is NOT installed. Needed by 'make modules_prepare'. On Raspbian, run 'sudo apt-get install bc' to install it.

But when I run the command I am told to run I get this error:

Package bc is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'bc' has no installation candidate

Does anyone know what this is happening?

Respinning Linux

LXer - Tue, 2016-07-19 19:04
In those early days we meandered from Knoppix to Mandrake, and ultimately found that MEPIS proved to be the most stable. The system installed without drama and the user forums were kid-friendly. The fact that Warren Woodford was often found active in the forums was a bonus.
