My company is looking to buy some linux tablets for us sysadmins. Why is it so hard to find a good linux tablet? Do you use one? If so, can you write a simple review? submitted by /u/drakehfh [link] [comments]

Hello I manage a couple of servers and I've setup a simple backup procedure which involves: an ssh key from each client box back to the single backup box a cron job a script which: takes a mysqldump gzips it tagging the file with date rsyncs it to the backup server rsyncs some website asset folders back to the backup server also copying all these in a local folder under /backup/whatever retains db dumps in /backup/whatever for last X days So, noob question here: would I benefit in any way by learning bacula? I saw some examples and they involve some configuration scripts, but also the installation of the bacula client. Is it worth? Thanks submitted by /u/cherouvim [link] [comments]

Maybe if you just put it back right away after the first topic and didn't respond thus just implicitly communicated "We were wrong to do so, we see that now, sorry", but after repeated removal of topics that asked why, demonstrating you saw the topics and you saw the demand for answers, we need an answer. 1) why was it removed when all the other just-as-off-topic posts get to stay 2) why did you decided to bring it back 3) who were the moderators involved in what part I'm sorry, as a moderator, you waive anonymity, you're a leader, be accountable, this hiding behind "the mod team" isn't acceptable. Leaders do not get a privilege of anonymity like that, they are to be held responsible for their decisions and people are to know who makes them. submitted by /u/a_tsunami_of_rodents [link] [comments]

To summarize the issue for people who have no context it started when r/linux moderators removed this[1] topic, ostensibly it's not entirely relevant to /r/linux, the problem is that many threads which are about BSD, about VLC, about Firefox, even other threads about Github are allowed to stay, but the mods have an issue of removing anyting that touches upon this particular part of Github's policy. Maybe they have a good reason, maybe they don't, the issue is, they just delete the threads asking for a reason. We don't want to send a signal that they can just do that and we'll go away. That is why we continue to make new threads. For all we know they had a good reason to remove the original, but they certainly don't have a good reason to not tell us and to remove any topic that asks about it. It's a problem of communication and transparency. I imagine that at some point this tactic will stop working because they'll write an automod rule. If that happens, post from pastebin, imgur, or any other offsite location. I'd just say, as advice to the mods: Reddit now supports locking comments in a thread and stickying a mod comment at the top. So, instead of deleting the post outright and riling up a bunch of users about censorship, it would be better to just lock the post and make a sticky comment at the top along the lines of "This post has been locked due to [reasons]" - It feels more transparent than just deleting something and hoping people don't notice. When this gets taken down, up the counter by one and post again. Add a link to this one at the bottom of the page. (This post is compiled from the best comments on various censorship threads.

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/44l4oo/rlinux_censorship_thread_two_electric_boogaloo/ asked an explanation for this being removed https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/44kqnw/rlinux_censorship/ which asked one for this: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/44keqp/whats_up_with_rlinux_censoring_the_github_stuff/ Which asked an explanation for this https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/44hrga/github_is_undergoing_a_fullblown_overhaul_as/ Which finally ased for an explanation about that one Again, the issue isn't even any more about that the mods removed the original one, but that they refuse to justify themselves and just remove any thread that asks why they removed it and why they refuse to justify, this is not how you run a community, it just results into people continuing to ask. Also, don't hurt the boogaloo. submitted by /u/a_tsunami_of_rodents [link] [comments]

The issue here is that /r/linux took down a relevant article without providing any kind of adequate explanation. They may have a very good reason, but that's not the problem. The problem is that they refuse to explain it to us, and continue to take down threads asking for an explanation. I imagine that at some point this tactic will stop working because they'll write an automod rule. If that happens, post from pastebin, imgur, or any other offsite location. When this gets taken down, up the counter by one and post again. Add a link to this one beneath the line. https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/44hrga/github_is_undergoing_a_fullblown_overhaul_as/ https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/44kqnw/rlinux_censorship/ submitted by /u/neurotheurge [link] [comments]

Please provide an official response and engage with the community instead of simply removing posts. This behavior is unacceptable, and you will only make the community more angry and unreasonable by using heavy-handed tactics.

The question says it all. Almost every serious linux professional I've come across swears by postgresql name. Yet, mysql continues to be the most popular or preferred database choice for people building their sites. Why is that so? submitted by /u/rms_returns [link] [comments]

First this gets deleted The this pops up asking why, also gets deleted, with a lot of comments in that topic asking why and most people being very unsatisfied. I guess it's easier to just delete and hope it goes away rather than having to explain yourself. submitted by /u/a_tsunami_of_rodents [link] [comments]

So here we are again, the ever ongoing issue of screen tearing and video stuttering in every Linux DM. I have forcefullcompositionpipeline in my xorg, and it definitely helps, but I still see occasional tearing and major stuttering in video. Games are harder to tell, but they do have occasional tearing. This issue is persistent in chrome, Firefox, and VLC. I've played with powermizer, xorg, many different driver versions, but I can't seem to make it go away. I had an installation of xubuntu that seemed perfect, and then I updated the driver and is is now occasionally tearing. Rolling back the driver leads to the same issue. I can't get the stars to align to make this work. Nothing comes close to how smooth video is on windows. I've also tried in gnome3, same issue. If anyone has any ideas, I am all ears. Setup: Debian stretch (kernel 4.3 with ACS patch), XFCE, no compositor, GTX 970 (352.63 proprietary), 4790k. submitted by /u/GrayBoltWolf [link] [comments]
