  1. But now that I'm thinking of it, I'm interesting hearing about container platforms and cloud platforms under Linux, and anything that is has to do with Linux where the IT world is going to cloud and container based solutions and automation and configuration management etc. And also Ubuntu/Debian, and CentOS/RHEL, and Linux security etc. And reading some about power shell under Linux would be nice too, and am interested in bash shell scripting and python scripting, does that help?
  2. I heard of wayland, but will be sticking to xorg for now since all my video card are nvida cards. If there is no nvidia support I won't be able to play games under Linux with wayland. Let us know once you test wayland with gaming under Linux will be interesting to hear your experiences.

    Fedora 29

    Cool Desktop! How are you liking Gnome3? I was running MATE desktop before but I switched to Cinnamon a while back.
  4. Thanks for posting! I stepped away from fedora a few years back because during upgrades stuff kept breaking. Ran on Scientific Linux for a while, but running Ubuntu and Debian now, never had any problems with upgrading since.
  5. Hey anyweb, This is feedmebits here, new looks of the forums look nice! I'm willing to help out when I can and when I have time. Not sure yet what I would like to read, I mostly like reading topics where people have a question, problem or need advice, and like to learn stuff from others as well I usually get my news sources from other sites, what are you ideas to starting over? btw I sent an email to your hotmail acount did you ever receive it, chances are it might have arrived in your spam folder. Cheers, inittux/feedmebits
  6. Never tried it, looks interesting! If I have too much time on my hand I may try it. Thanks for your contribution to the forums!

    Fedora 22 onward

    Only two people that were on there were hybrid and Dungeon-Dave, but hybrid hasn't been on in a long time, but there are some other nice people there just usually not about Linux.

    The only irc channel I know that some people from here were on is on irc.foreverchat #linux, but they rarely talk about linux there. What server and channel was it on before?

    Fedora 22 onward

    No I meant, I'm still running CentOS7(based on RHEL7), dnf wil probably be in the next RHEL version, so als on the next CentOS version

    Fedora 22 onward

    Still using CentOS7 here, this will probably be also in the next version of RHEL
  11. Hello Oroshi, You've probably noticed but the forums have kind of died, rarely anyone on here anymore, but nice to seen another face around here again
  12. You seem to have enough space on /, did you check the logs for an error messages /var/log/messages(syslog). Wat distro are you using and what version?
  13. Trying to blow some life into the community

    1. anyweb


      keep trying, one day i will re-focus on this site, let me know if you have any good ideas.

  14. I know this is an old post but you could use iptables to block the ip but since scans like this usually come from random ip's you could use fail2ban
  15. lol nice to read up on an old post. Learned alot since then

    DNS issues

    Been learning and working more with DNS lately. I actually understand of more how dns works now, now I can actually talk the talk
  17. Sorry for the late reply, the forum has been quite inactive lately. You probably found your answer already but just for the sake incase someone might run into here. You could do that, download the iso burn it, boot from cd and then install. Or you could download the iso and create a bootble usb drive and install from there. Try unetbootin
  18. Interesting how that would work. Would that mean you could ssh into a windows machine from linux. Or that I could just ssh from a windows machine to a linux machine. Or does it go both ways? Have you tried it yet?

    cmake 2.8

    Try opening the terminal and run the following command rpm -qa | grep cmake Copy the list you get here. What I'm guessing is you probably only installed cmake and not cmake gui. cmake.x86_64 : Cross-platform make system cmake-gui.x86_64 : Qt GUI for cmake try install cmake-gui as root yum install cmake-gui
  20. If you downloaded the source code and tried to configure make make install and got the error that command is not found you probably haven't not install the development tools . You can install them by using the following command: yum group install "Development Tools" But installing rar from the repos is better practice since you don't have to manually rebuild the package again each time a new version is out. When the repo has an update version you can just use yum update rar or during a full system update yum update Don't forget to do it as root.
  21. Yes this is possible with linux, what do you want to use authentication for, you mean like having users kept in central place. LDAP could be used for this. That would cover your Authentication and user management. Limiting access to files is also possible by putting users in groups or bij using ACLs together with either NFS or Samba, and with samba you can configure using network printers with cups. Does that answer your question?
  22. Did you try to install flash manually? Cuz the opt directory usually is a place where you install other software that is not really standard. With my experience with Mint, flash should be automatically be installed by default during the installation process. If two versions of flash are installed they might be in the way of each other.
  23. Spring is on the way :)

  24. Under Mint 15(Olivia) that option of "addition drivers" is under: preferences --> driver manager.
