Getting Apparmor not to allow programs that do not have a profile.

Reddit - Sat, 2016-08-13 02:32

I am using a Debian system ( techinically LMDE ) without systemd. I tried to use SELinux on it, but it turns out that the ref policy gets confused without systemd, mislableling a lot of things.

So I thought I would give apparmor a shot. The thing is that I've looked at some intros and they all say that AppArmor does not restrict applications unless they have a policy.

Is there a way to specify that no application can be run unless there exists a policy for it?

The LeEco Le 2S's alleged 8GB RAM may put other Android phones to shame

TuxMachines - Sat, 2016-08-13 02:18

Chinese technology company LeEco might be slowly inching toward a U.S. launch sometime this fall, but that does not mean it will sit on its laurels until then. On the contrary, LeEco is rumored to be launching the Le 2S, which is seemingly a refreshed version of the Le 2 and the first Android phone to include a whopping 8GB RAM.

You did not read that wrong — according to GizChina, the Le 2S will include 8GB RAM, practically unheard of in the Android world. As we have seen with Samsung’s 2015 flagship phones and the OnePlus 3, however, the RAM amount does not matter as much as how it is utilized. Even so, the 8GB RAM will finally turn our dream of playing five games at the same time a reality.

Trends in corporate open source engagement

LXer - Sat, 2016-08-13 02:08
In 1998, I was part of SGI when we started moving to open source and open standards, after having been a long-time proprietary company. Since then, other companies also have moved rapidly to working with open source, and the use and adoption of open source technologies has skyrocketed over the past few years. Today company involvement in open source technologies is fairly mature and can be seen in the following trends:read more

phone os's?

Reddit - Fri, 2016-08-12 23:42

if I use linux on most of my computers, think i would enjoy that ubuntu os for phone over android or ios? (even though im not a huge fan of ubuntu, although its probably unity as I like a lot of ubuntu derivatives)

I have about zero phone experience other than using someone else phone to make a call maybe once a month

any other good linuxy phone os? (or even not linux, but underrated phone os)

Everybody Should Be Haiku Writing

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-08-12 23:39

As many of my readers have probably figured out, I am a fan of the stuff that’s “out there.” You don’t even have to use it. It doesn’t need to be something that will necessarily set the world on fire. If there’s passion in its development and design, I’m pretty much on board. And I can’t wait to try it.

Question relating to usb wifi adapter.

Reddit - Fri, 2016-08-12 23:08

I have a question related to how I got my USB Wifi adapter to work.

I am damn near brand new to linux, and enjoy surfing the web to complete tasks.

So, i tired my luck to get this to work on my own, and it did... i just don't understand how..here's what i did.

It came with a disk.

On the disk was a tar.bz2 file.

I used terminal to extract it to a Folder I made on the desktop.

Then boom! My wifi adapter worked...

Please point me in the right direction so I can understand how this happened.

Or, Just tell me.

Either way,
