In Linux, Cron is a daemon/service that executes shell commands periodically on a given schedule. Cron is driven by a crontab, a configuration file that holds details of what commands are to be run along with a timetable of when to run them. Knowing how to use Cron is key to mastering automation with Linux.
How many times do you run a specific set of shell commands, before you create a script to automate the process? Sometimes, I think I wait far too long.
Running Fedora 39 on my Razer Blade 15 and it's almost silent with very little fan noise. Running Windows 11 on the same machine and it sounds like a Boeing 747 on takeoff. WTF is that about?
Looking at an AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT as a replacement for my NVIDIA GTX 1660 Super. I hear AMD cards are better supported under Linux, but I've only ever had NVIDIA cards, so I've got no clue myself. Any AMD users out there want to testify?
Lincoln LUG haven't had any IRL meetings since before COVID, but we all still meet on Discord and say hi every day. I've simplified our website to reflect this: lincolnlug.org.uk
I recently read a toot from someone who was frustrated with Ubuntu because of snapd and was asking for recommendations for other Debian based distributions. Why was Debian itself not the obvious choice?
Deleting session files and pushing the limits of rm: exec: Failed to execute process '/usr/bin/rm': the total size of the argument list and exported variables (5.5MB) exceeds the OS limit of 2MB.
Giving the Firefox Nightly .deb package a spin. I normally just download the binary and set-up my own .desktop file etc, so it's nice that Mozilla are providing this option now. I'm hoping that now I'm not using a Nvidia display driver, Firefox runs a bit better.
Just configured fingerprint authentication on my ThinkPad T14s under Debian and it worked first time. The device is listed as '27c6:6594 Shenzhen Goodix Technology Co.,Ltd. Goodix USB2.0 MISC'.
Every time I remove a Linode from my pool and the IP address is assigned to another Linode customer, I receive an early warning report from the National Cyber Security Centre about potential security vulnerabilities on the customer's new server. I'm thinking there is a potential business opportunity here.
Giving Fedora 39 a try in a virtual machine. It looks and feels like another solid release. If I wasn't a Debian user, I'd be a Fedora user, no doubt.
Does a good job of explaining the whole Red Hat/CentOS/Oracle/Rocky Linux thing, which as a Debian user, I've found a bit confusing.
Prompt is a terminal that marries the best of GNOME Builder’s seamless container support, the beauty of GNOME Text Editor, and the robustness of VTE. I like to think of it as a companion terminal to Builder.
A set of scripts for extending the functionality of the GNOME Files (Nautilus), Caja and Nemo file managers.
A customizable cross-platform graphical process/system monitor for the terminal, supporting Linux, macOS, and Windows. Inspired by other tools like gtop, gotop, and htop.
Turn any webpage into a desktop app with Rust with ease.
