Occasionally as seasoned Linux users, we run across simple things we never knew existed—and are amazed. Whether it's tab autocompletion, sudo !! for when you forgot to type sudo or even recursive file listing with ls, the smallest tricks can be so incredibly useful. Not long ago, I had one of those moments. Most people know rc.local is the file where you put commands you want to have start on system boot. Sometimes the rc.local script is disabled, however, and it doesn't work. It also can be difficult to remember the syntax for starting a particular program as a specific user. Plus, having a long list of programs in rc.local can just become ugly. Little did I know, cron supports not only periodic execution of commands, but it also can start programs when the system starts as well!

However, say you have a Linux box already assembled with a modem and a LAN card. The modem […]Continue reading...The post How to set up Internet connection sharing with iptables on Linux appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:How to run iptables automatically after reboot on Debian What are available iptables management tools with GUI?

The case for open source dominating the cloud rests on the fact that it’s already the foundation for many popular cloud services and enterprise applications. Whitehurst aptly notes that outside of Microsoft Azure, the underlying infrastructure of all the major public cloud services is built upon open source software. Furthermore, software like Linux, Apache, MySQL, WordPress and many others are already widely used and trusted by most enterprises.

The OnePlus One uses a version of CyanogenMod 11 called 11S. This is based around Android 4.4.2 Kitkat (for those of you keeping track, the current version in the handset is 11.0-XNPH22Q). As one of the first phones to ship out of the factory with CyanogenMod installed (as opposed to sitting down with a multitude of flashing tools, roms, and long linux command line incantations to switch over an existing Android handset), this significantly reduces the barrier of entry into the world of CyanogenMod.

Announcing global private internet access for all of your Internet devices. Protect your privacy and say good-bye to the NSA, also stops ISP torrent throttling. Now you can protect your PC, laptop, phone, tablet, TV and gaming console too. In fact anything you own that is connected to the Internet can now be protected with just one VPN account. The Robolinux VPN is fully integrated to a global private Internet access provider and takes less than 30 seconds to set up. We added Lucky Backup. The 64-bit edition has a new kernel from Debian upstream; Robolinux has also released an updates repository so users no longer need to reinstall Robolinux when new versions come out.
While it initially seemed revolutionary, open source software is actually rooted in traditional IT processes. Technology, after all, has always been about collaboration and continuous improvement. (In the early days of the ARPANET, for example, researchers established a "request for comments" procedure to improve the project.)

A Conversation With Linus Torvalds, Who Built The World's Most Robust Operating System And Gave It Away For Free
In 1991, 22-year old Finnish computer programmer Linus Torvalds released his own operating system. Now, some 23 years later, Linux is everywhere. It powers your Android smartphone. It sorts mail for the US Postal Service. It runs the controls for CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, it steers nuclear submarines, and it powers more than 95% of the world’s 500 fastest supercomputers.
So, it looks like The Witcher 3 will really be coming to Linux thanks to SteamOS, but will you be buying it?
