I say Debian based distributions as they have plenty of user friendly branches. Feel free to compare to other distributions, I say Debian because I like Arch but it isn't the most stable. Edit: By stable I mean in terms of package versions so more bleeding edge Edit2: I actually say Debian based distributions because I can't really compare Linux to Mac OSX as Linux is a kernel so I thought of something popular. submitted by totallynotahologram [link] [3 comments]

I have a laptop that dual boots Windows and Xubuntu. I wanted to replace Xubuntu with Debian. I downloaded Debian to a flash drive, booted from it, and ran the install. At the partition stage of the install, I deleted my Xubuntu partitions and replaced them with / and swap partitions. I continued and the installer told me "No EFI Partitions found." and asked if I wanted to continue. Not wanting to potentially cause any problems with my Windows install by messing with the boot partition, I continued. The install completed and I chose to reboot. Now I am just brought to a 'minimal GRUB command line' that I assume is from the old installation and I can't boot Debian or Windows. I went into boot devices in BIOS and saw four listings: Debian, Ubuntu (x2), and Windows (which when selected boots Windows fine). However, I think the Debian option may be from a previous install of Debian I ran. I selected it and it brought me to a Debian GRUB screen that showed Debian as an option for booting. I selected it and it starts to go through the boot process, but it never loads Debian. Additionally, I get these errors while booting from this mode: usb 1-7:unable to read config index 0 descriptor/st... usb 1-7: chopping to 0 config(s) usb 1-7: string descriptor 0 read error: -71 The second two lines constantly repeat while the boot hangs and the number at the end of the string descriptor error can change to -110. I'm not really sure if this part of the problem though, or if Debian is not properly installed. How can get GRUB properly installed and showing Windows as an option? I am fine with reinstalling Debian. submitted by cmorris14 [link] [comment]

I have to admit I purchased a mac 3-4 months ago. A Mac book pro (cost $2500). Its got some really nice specs: CPU: I7-4850HQ RAM: DDR3L 16gb GPU1: Intel Iris Pro 5200 GPU2: GeForce GT 750M SSD: PCIe 512gb SSD Display: 2880x1800 IPS screen The big things here are that the specs are awesome! (price point, thats a little tough to justify). I like the mac but dont like a lot of things about it that I am use to being able to do with a linux box. So I am thinking of selling the mac book pro in hopes of finding a good laptop that I can through linux on and be back in my comfort zone. There are so many laptops out there its hard to limit myself to which ones are best. Main things I would like: -i7 quad core (preferebly one pretty recently launched) -PCIe SSD (512gb is plenty :) ) -High res screen (must) I like IPS and anything around 2048x1280. -Ram (Anything is going to be good enough, prefer 16gb) -Multitouch trackpad (must) I really like scrolling with two fingers and going back and forward in a browser with a two finger swipe. I would like to spend around $1000 (if I have to step it up a little higher for something nice, im completely fine with it). If you guys could point me in a good direction or recommend some good models that would be awesome! Thanks! submitted by n0hc [link] [2 comments]

After 3 months of research and 48hrs of hell all i can say is stay away. Two or more screens? Due to bugs in arch and kde/gnome expect to reset the settings on each restart Play games on steam? It works, but thats if you can get the drivers to work. Want to set up ur machine as a media server? Plex doesn't work, at all. Neither does XBMC (as a media server) Keep hearing about how great the wiki is? Expect to find no information on such issues as: makepkg wanting root then warning against using root xorg needs to be updated daily if you dont want random issues uninstalling one program will break another 3 I would suggest Ubuntu, SteamOs or Debian. Stay away from Arch, unless your a fan of headaches submitted by ijuzwantfamous [link] [5 comments]

Hi,I've searched and searched forums-google-etc but I cannot find the solution.I'm on Linux Mint and Tv card works after I've inserted module with card number,but I have no sound.Then I've noticed if I reboot to Windows and start some Tv software (I'm using media player classic) then reboot again into Linux I have sound. The card is Hercules Smart Tv Usb 2 ,the module is em28xx.On Linux I use TvTime,but any other software is same,no sound until I reboot to windows,and after that as long I don't boot windows again I have sound (I can turn off the computer and turn it on 2 day after and there will be sound). Anyone experienced this and has solution ? submitted by gokily [link] [comment]

I don't see a recent post here on this topic after minutes of searching; any suggestions for decent wireless cameras that play well with Linux? I'll probably use motion to handle things on the Linux side, anyone have experience with this or other packages (zoneminder?) submitted by nizo505 [link] [1 comment]

(Intro) Hello. I have been searching for a while on reddit and google but I believe I am missing some keywords I should search for and have therefore decided to ask it in a form of a question here. Also I believe that this should benefit to more than just me if it is doable. (Skip intro - Configuration) I have a computer (obviously), that has virtually nothing but: main-board (mother-board), CPU and RAM. The I/O capabilities are: USB slots (3 slots) 1 Ethernet input. (Trying to do...) I would like to insert a Linux USB Pendrive (I like Linux Mint) and connect to the computer via Network (search the network with ping 255.255.255.255 or sth. the broad cast address.. some way of getting the IP of the running computer) and than use the computer a music machine, sensory input etc. So basically i would like to avoid connecting Computer screen, Mouse, Keyboard to it. I thing that does this sort of a thing that i have come across with already is BAMT for mining. Are there any others solutions that do the same thing? BAMT comes preinstalled with xrdp so I can connect with that which is pretty great. TeamViewer is also something I like, but you can not have that pre-installed with your credentials so that is out of the questions. Thank you for you answers. I hope my English was understandable. I will try to edit this question so that it will be more understandable in time. submitted by HumanPeace [link] [1 comment]
