Chromebook + Android apps = Trouble for Windows PCs

TuxMachines - Sat, 2016-05-21 00:57
  • ​Chromebook + Android apps = Trouble for Windows PCs

    Chromebooks are already outselling Macs. So Linus Torvalds is wondering if this really might be the year of the Linux desktop. With the addition of Android apps to the Chromebook, maybe it really will be.

  • Shipments of Chromebooks integrated with Google Play set to increase

    Google has announced that new Chromebooks rolled out by its notebook partners will start supporting Google Play, a move which is likely to substantially ramp up shipments of Chromebooks.

  • Chrome OS to get Android apps via the magic of containers

    Google has pulled the move the software market has been waiting ages for, and built a system to run Android apps on its desktop operating system.

    The system works by setting up a Linux container in the Chrome operating system that runs a complete version of Android in a locked-down environment to minimize security issues. It's not an emulated version of Android, so there should be a minimum number of issues, Chrome OS team leader Kan Liu told developers at the Google I/O conference.

  • Chromebooks Gaining Share
  • Why do you use Linux?

    Regardless of what caused you to first make the switch, it's exciting to be a part of a community that supports so many different needs with a single ecosystem of overlapping project. The Linux community gives you choice, through a variety of distributions, to find an operating system that finely matches your individual needs.

Assigning a static IP on OpenSUSE. No experience modifying any network settings in the past

Reddit - Sat, 2016-05-21 00:23

So, up until now, all I've done with network settings on any machine is just use dynamic IP (router assigns the address). Now, though, I want my machine to be accessible publicly via ssh. I've got ssh set up wonderfully, port forwarding from the router, encryption key, the whole shebang. But I know that it's recommended to set a static IP too, to ensure the port forwarding always works. And that is where I'm getting a bit lost.

I used yast to open up my network settings and assign a static IP of It automatically gave me a subnet mask of /32, and a hostname of linux-o2az. I made no other changes.

The result was I lost internet access until I switched back to dynamic.

So, I know I'm doing something wrong here. I'm very proficient with the command line btw, I just don't know what config files to change, etc. As I said, messing with network settings is something I'm an uber noob at.

Advice would be nice. Doesn't have to be yast specific, if someone could guide me through what config files to edit, what to change, etc.

btw, doing this on my wireless card. Thanks.
