Today marks the day when (mostly) open-source firmware for off-the-shelf modern servers becomes an option.
Open-source firmware is the right choice for humanity. As our devices effectively become extensions of our minds, it becomes critical that the hardware and software we use are trustworthy._

Hello all

iTunes has worked in wine for about 10 years, but the phone/tablet will never get system updates via that iTunes, updates only come down in Windows/Mac
I believe iTunes in a Windows VM on a Linunx host cannot even get updates for hardware
If you can get updates over mobile data than I believe most of iTunes will work “fine”, DRM video might have issues
Thanks

next recording date will be Sept 6, 2019

We would like to thank Delwin for the use of his mumble server.
We would also like to thank “000webhost” for web hosting
Finally we would like to give a special thanks to Faherfinch, and Tony Beemus for all their help and support over the years.

Hello colleagues, I leave a video tutorial with their respective English translations, this very didactic, is simple, short and accurate. To learn how to create bootable usb memory in linux. Whether they want to try a Linux distribution without installing it on their machine, or installing it, you can do it with a bootable USB memory. You should only choose the distribution of linux that your prefer.

All companies, regardless of how large or small, run on their data. Consider the financial and business cost of losing all of the data you need to run your business. There is not a business today ranging from the smallest sole proprietorship to the largest global corporation that could survive the loss of all or even a large fraction of its data. Your place of business can be rebuilt using insurance, but your data can never be rebuilt.

Today we are going to learn some command line productivity hacks. As you already know, we use “cd” command to move between a stack of directories in Unix-like operating systems. In this guide I am going to teach you how to navigate directories faster without having to use “cd” command often. There could be many ways, but I only know the following five methods right now! I will keep updating this guide when I came across any methods or utilities to achieve this task in the days to come.

So I’ve been playing with Fedora for the last week or so in preparation for the next Distro Hoppers podcast and yesterday I decided to update to F30, so the short of it is it broke Mumble and even a clean install did not resolve the issue. So I’m back to F29 as I can’t talk to the mintCast guy’s or Moss to record any podcasts without mumble installed and working. Trying F30 again will have to wait until I get home as I will have another spare PC to try it on and 100Mb internet, only having 4Mb where I am at the moment means updates and iso downloads take Hours, yes that is not a miss print it took me over 2hours to do the original OTA update from F29-30 and downloading an iso took over an hour.

At least 67 percent of global businesses in the past three years have faced data breaching. The breaching has been reported to expose hundreds of millions of customers. Studies show that an estimated 93 percent of these breaches would have been avoided had data security fundamentals been considered beforehand.

FiftyOneFifty:  https://www.gofundme.com/help-eric-arduini-and-family  Eric passed the end of last week.  PodNutz did a 24 hour videocast in his honor last weekend.  Reposting the GoFundMe link.  Proceed will now go to defraying medical and final expenses.

Found a newer copy of DietPi for Pine64 on the DietPi website https://dietpi.com/downloads/
than is linked on the Pine64 distribution page.  Next Cloud/Pi Hole/VPN/CertBot  Once the partion is expanded, you are prompted to change the root and user passwords.  This always results in the root password not being recocgnized (ditto in editing the password in /boot/dietpi.txt before you remove it after imaging the SD).  I’d also been shortcircuiting the install, setting a static IP (for Pi-Hole) and then rebooting via the option under Security/Change hostname in the Configuration menu.  This time, picking my applications and letting the install run like Setup wants.  After config is complete, I’ll ssh in, make the “user” account a “sudoer”, clone the account, then change passwords.

A Linus Tech Tip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co6FePZoNgE last week led me to Lutris for installing Windows games of Linux.  It is able to access your Steam Library and install games you own there.  Glitched a little on first run because I hadn’t updated Steam in a while.  Closed Lutris, updated Steam, and re ran.  Appears to have opened my Steam account, verified I own “Metro 2033”, ran the Windows .msi.  Now I have a window that says “Installing Game Data”.  Doesn’t seem to impact my bandwidth, no progress meter.  Not sure if anything is actually happening.

Credit to Door on PodNutz.com Linux for the Rest of Us #221 for this link https://github.com/leon-ai/leon  leon-ai is a personal assistant that runs on your own server.  Perhaps a salve to the disappiontment I had with Sirius/Lucinda

I will miss next show because https://2019.penguicon.org/  https://2019.texaslinuxfest.org/ 5/31-6/01  HearseCon 6/13-6/16

Some bad news related to your previous discussion on the show. This is what happens when people in power who think the entire internet is just Facebook and YouTube actually make decisions.
