Increasingly, as open source technology becomes more pervasive, tech and DevOps workers are choosing to or being asked to build out and oversee their own open source projects. From Google, to Netflix to Facebook, companies are also releasing their open source creations to the community.
The Linux Foundation’s Certification Program is designed to give you a way to differentiate yourself in a job market that’s hungry for your skills. But, how well does the certification prepare you for the real world?
SUSE Studio is pretty awesome for building custom Linux spins. When you have designed your spin to your liking, you can download what’s known as a "raw image" that you can copy to a USB thumbdrive, and... Hey presto! You've got yourself a tailor-made distro on a stick!
There is one serious caveat, however: If you want to add external packages that are not in the otherwise very comprehensive repositories, things can get complicated indeed.
first a little tl;dr: None of the listed Linux distros would boot on my notebook (more important hardware-specs listed below); can you help me get a live system that boots on my notebook so that I can install Gentoo on it?
I've bought a notebook last year and decided to try to install Linux on it.
After some searching in the web, trial-and-error-sessions and asking in IRC for help, I'm at a point where I never was. It seems like no live-system I tried so far (last tried in April) fulfills my demands.
Here are some Live-Systems I've tried:
The result was always the same: something didn't work.
Some of these systems weren't able to boot with UEFI; some weren't able to get any further than the boot-screen where I was able to choose to boot into the live-system, then the system booted until it had an error at trying to communicate with one of the processor units (hardware specs are below); others got as far as to a terminal... but without a GUI I didn't want to install Linux with a wireless connection; and Fedora and Sabayon managed to boot with a GUI, but the network driver (neither LAN nor WLAN) didn't work...
So after a bit more searching the web, I found this entry in the Arch Wiki, and the notebook is very similar to mine (I have a MSI GS70 6QE Stealth Pro).
Now I probably found a way to install Linux, but therefore I need a live-system with altered drivers. And that's where I need some guidance. Can you tell me how add files to an already built live-system, or can you link a guide on how to build a live-system on your own, with the drivers you need?
Thanks in advance. :)Hardware CPU Intel i7-6700HQ GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M Wifi Killer ac (according to my findings i need the ath10k driver for it) LAN Killer GbLAN (same as Wifi) HDD M.2 SATA SSD 256GB + SATA3 HDD 1TB
If you need more info, please write it in the comments.
P.S.: If you'd like to know why I've tried it last time in April, it was at the end of April when an IRC user suggested me to update my BIOS with the file provided by MSI. This busted my BIOS and I had to file a RMA which took some weeks and when I came back I hadn't much time to try it again, so I waited until I have more time again.submitted by /u/green1t
Phoronix: There are some new feature proposals to talk about for Fedora 25, which will be officially released around November.
SiFive announced its flagship Freedom family of system on a chip platforms.
Lithuanian police has announced yesterday that they will be ditching Microsoft services in favor of Ubuntu. One department has already done so, while others have migrated from MS Office to LibreOffice. Lithuanian police, despite being one of the most trusted institutions in Lithuanian public polls at all times, is still very underpaid. The latest reform focuses on allowing the department to pay decent and respectable salaries to their officers. They say that getting rid of huge Microsoft's licensing prices will contribute greatly to that cause. As a police volunteer and hopefully soon to be a police cadet within the Lithuanian police, I am very happy to hear about this :)submitted by /u/Rytuklis
