Power Management, pc states on Ivy Bridge

Reddit - Tue, 2016-06-14 21:08

Hello everyone, not sure if it's the best place to post this.

I have a Latitude E6540 running Debian Jessie (stable) so with the 3.16 kernel.

I'm doing some tweaks to get better battery life so I'm using tlp and I have a few arguments in my /etc/default/grub file.

Anyways I managed to get into pc6 (package c states) when the computer is idle and the wifi card is disabled. I am wondering if it is possible to get to pc6 with the wifi enabled.

If you need more information about configuration or hardware ask me I'm not sure what I should include in the initial post.

TuxMachines - Tue, 2016-06-14 20:49

When Frank Karlitschek, co-founder and former CTO of ownCloud, forked ownCloud into Nextcloud , I expected it to do well. I didn't expect it to have its first major release less than two weeks after the company opened its doors. Well, the first Nextcloud release is out now.

LAN based Netflix type application

Reddit - Tue, 2016-06-14 20:33

Problem: Tonnes of videos and TV shows exist in a central repository running Linux Mint. Kids don't want to SFTP files, they just want to view a preview (or boxart etc) and tap their finger to view a video, like Netflix. If they are going on a long car ride, it'd be nice to have some caching.

Solution: Something like Netflix, but localized to a Linux server on the lan with a light client, perhaps just web based or maybe android.

Does anyone know of something very close to this? I don't want to go the full media server route as many of those cost money and do much more than I/we need. I'm thinking a python web server or maybe some php with apache, or maybe something Node.js based that's serving content. The viewers can be just straight web browser or maybe a bit more fancy and an (open source) android client.

Do I have to build this myself or does something like it exist?
