So I just got hired to a very small company that works with oil and gas. The boss asked me to build setup a sever and database. We are using a Mac Mini (put your pitch forks down). I tried using homebrew to get the benefits of linux but decided that maybe dual booting into linux and using that for production services instead. My requirements of the setup: the database must play nice with JSON, so I opted to use Postgresql. Also need a stable OS environment while still being easy for me to maintain and learn. I'm new to all of this. Any advice on whether I'm on the right path and what distro I should use (I was thinking of using Ubuntu). submitted by lawsof3 [link] [comment]

I'm a full time college junior and work 30+ hours/week (retail), I'm extremely interested in learning Linux. Is there any advice you could give me to make the transition simpler? (Distribution to start with?) My anxiety comes from the idea that I may end up spending 6 hours getting some software function in linux so i can begin work on a 5 hour project with 3 hours left to complete it. I've been considering loading a VM of Linux in windows, but I've read that i probably wont learn to really utilize Linux unless I dive in. Is there a significant downside to loading a VM of windows on Linux? I know it messes with games, but I don't really have time for games right now anyway :'(... submitted by iPood4u [link] [7 comments]

I've got VirtualBox up and running with Ubuntu (both the latest versions), and can't seem to get screen resizing to work (it's stuck at something in the 600's/700's). So far I've looked all over online, and I've gotten this far: I hit ctrl+alt+t and open the terminal, type "sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11", but it changes nothing after a restart - the screen resolutions are still greyed out in the display options for the virtualbox. Random details (since I don't know what's important): I'm doing this logged into ubuntu using my main account (not guest). Before I found that longer command which seems to install three packages, I found a smaller one, just containing the 'virtualbox-guest-dkms'. That one, and 'vbox-guest-utils' seem to install fine. The error message crops up at 'vbox-guest-x11'. The message reads as follows: "Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of incoming. Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages." Can anyone help me out with this? EDIT: Nevermind, I found a solution here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/104440/how-do-you-resize-the-standard-ubuntu-desktop-inside-of-virtualbox First option in the first reply worked like a charm. submitted by wscuraiii [link] [1 comment]

Hi r/linux, long time lurker here, so sorry in advance if I am doing something wrong. I wrote a small open source script to automatically create and delete snapshots for ZFS on Linux. It is a very simple tool, but I think it serves it purpose very well and it would mean a lot to me if some people, who are using ZFS on Linux, could tell me their opinion about it.
