I recently found my old Nexus S and I decided I'm going to refurbish it as an audio player (that plays off my file server) in the kitchen. The problem is that it's still running the ancient kitkat so I imagine apps are going to stop supporting it soon. Is there any alternative to Android? Any way to run Linux on it?submitted by /u/some_random_guy_5345
EnterprisersProject: Laugh, it's good for you (and your code).
There are now three technologies competing to make developers, packagers and users' life better on Linux:
All of them have more or less the same goals: contained applications that can be packaged once and deployed everywhere.
What's the pros and cons of each of them? Have you tried them personally, and if so, what do you think? Is there a comparison somewhere online?submitted by /u/ePierre
I moved a bunch of files over to a folder on a USB drive.
Almost all of the files are accessible and I can manipulate them in every normal way. There are a handful, however, that I can't do anything with.
They do not show up in Nautilus, but they do in terminal. However, in terminal, here are the file details:
? -????????? ? ? ? ? ?
That is the file ID, permissions, owner, group, size, and date. I can't rename them, chown, delete. They are stuck. As a result, I am also unable to recopy the files either b/c they are being seen by the O/S.
Any ideas would be very welcome.
Edit: I did try to remove the USB and plugged it into a different port. Unmounted/remounted and verified that I could copy over other files and rename files without that issue.submitted by /u/spaceman757
After a few accidents leaking out before it was due, Feral have today officially (and finally) properly confirmed F1 2015 is coming to Linux.
A COMPUTER EXPLORER has managed to take a PS4 and turn it into a Linux box that can be used to play Steam games. Why? Progress, people, and porting. If you can think it, you might as well give it a go.
Alert the masters! YouTuber OsirisX must be banished, for they have orchestrated an unholy union. OsirisX installed Arch Linux on a PlayStation 4 that still had version 1.76 of its firmware, and then installed Steam on the desktop OS. Blasphemy!
Linux and Sony used to be on good terms, if not the best of friends.
