So, I wanted to try out Debian on my Surface (already got it on my other computers) and got as far as creating a bootable USB-Stick. It works fine on other computers I tried it on, but the Surface just starts into Windows. I also tried Ubuntu (just for testing if it would work), and it worked without a flaw... :/ What I already did: UEFI is completely disabled I know that you can "manually" start from an USB Drive by pressing Volume Down while starting, this works with the Ubuntu Stick The normal routine of starting it in the system restore settings does not work either - on Ubuntu it does I downloaded the x64 version of debian 7.4 kde from here and also tried my luck with one of the small CD images... completely out of ideas now, what is going wrong? why is only this image not bootable? submitted by Daniel93A [link] [2 comments]

I just bought a laptop with Ubuntu Linux preinstalled. Everything works great, but I want to experiment with other distributions. What is the best way for me to record all the drivers I'm using and configuration settings, so that I can hopefully get things like media hotkeys, audio, wifi, etc., working in other distributions? submitted by TheAethereal [link] [comment]

I've just installed Linux Mint 16 and I've got some wifi issues. At the beginning, it was connecting to the wireless network, but I couldn't load pages, so I disabled the Broadcom driver. After that, it worked decently (weaker signal and slower connection compared to Windows7, but I didn't mind that much), but after the first restart, it went back to the initial state (Broadcom is still disabled, by initial state I mean that it detects wireless networks, connects to them, but doesn't load pages). It appears to be loading the pages, but I waited around 20 minutes with no result. The wired connection works perfectly (I'm using it now), and other devices don't have any problem with the wireless router I'm trying to use submitted by thegreattimics [link] [comment]

Linux noob here... The company I work for currently has two servers (Windows Server 2012) that handle their email and various websites (one of them is just a backup, really). I am currently in the process of bringing their normal HTML-style site (which I also built a few years ago) into the future with WordPress, and my luck with combining WinServer2012 and WP has been non existent (way too many IIS issues). I've convinced them to add another server on their rack (they currently rent half a rack of space) and install Linux on it (and then Wordpress etc). I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on where to buy a server from. I've been looking at some of the System76 servers, which seem nice because they pre-install the OS and seem geared towards Linux, but was wondering if anyone else had suggestions. I don't necessarily need the OS pre-installed (as the more I learn about Linux, the better). I'm also fine with building my own server, except I'm not sure that's an easy option when dealing with rack servers (never built a computer into that type of shape before). The websites don't get super heavy traffic or anything, as it's a software company, so a lot of the traffic is just large downloads (~100mb or so). They get maybe 3k-5k of visitors each day, usually during US business hours. Anyone got any suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated. Also, pointing me to a thread that already answers this question would work, too. submitted by z64dan [link] [1 comment]
