Texas Linux Fest:  Met Joe, Ed Leach, and Danny Meeks.  Hung around with them and Mordancy

KansasLinuxFest.org Aug. 9-11 2019, Wichita State University Campus.  No reserved rooms, no hotel near campus.  If coming from out of town, I suggest getting a room in “Old Town”.

After 24 years, new version of Amiga OS released https://gigazine.net/gsc_news/en/20181011-amiga-os-new-version/

A new “Amiga” to go with it https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/05/the-a-eon-amiga-x5000-reviewed-the-beloved-amiga-meets-2017/

Netminer:  Folks, there are three Amiga OS lines due to licensing.   There is the 3.1 series, the 3.9 series, and the 4.1 series.   I am not an Amiga person,  but I am a retro computing person.   I follow the continuing  Amiga saga with interest.

Got  DietPi on my Pine64.  Ran Pi-Hole, 64 overheated and locked up.  Will try without pine case before trying a different SBC

On way home from airport, found Arcade1Up Asteroids for $150 clearance at WalMart.  Bought 2.  Discovered one open box, assembled, no worky.  Ultimately, this was to be a Retro-Pi cabinet, but I’d have liked to have tested the 1Up.  Second cabinet was for investment, but I could help a bro or sis out.

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.

Basic rsync commands are usually enough to manage your Linux backups, but a few extra options add speed and power to large backup sets.

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.

Tony Hughes:
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 was hoping we had put this to bed last year.  Once again, the EU is considering regs that says a web host can’t allow any posts to “copywrited” content, including news articles or pics, including the link in this post, or face stiff fines.  This means I would not be able to  make the Mattermost server I planned for my Scaleway instance open to the public.  Worse, if I read the article right, they may be able to go after content on non-EU servers.  Sorry Europe, we may just have to block you.  https://www.zdnet.com/article/the-eus-new-copyright-laws-threaten-to-destroy-the-internet/

[FiftyOneFifty apologizes to the TrueOS devs.  Lack of Steam support really had nothing to do with the changes to TrueOS.  He sees now he should have waited until he did more research before criticising the distro]

  • From the “You ain’t gonna believe this one department” (rant level 5 warning).  In our last ep, I was trying to triple boot my new system to Windows, Fedora, and TrueOS.  TrueOS (fork of FreeBSD) because they had been claiming Windows versions of Steam games would play as fast or faster on FOSS as they would in Windows thanks to PlayOnBSD.  BSD doesn’t use GRUB and I have UEFI active so even though the install was successful, TrueOS didn’t show up in the bootloader.  netminer actually read the Wiki better than I did and directed me to where it said I’d need a third party bootloader to make BSD play with EFI.  They recommend reFind. http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/getting.html  Besides .deb and .rpm files to install reFind easily, there are also thumb drive and CD images so you can “try before you” buy.  BTW, apparently there are more than one “run anything from UEFI” bootloader options, more on that next show.

 

  • OK, so I spend the evening beating on my new Fedora install because my USB stick is not automounting.  Unetbootin gives me a permissions error and a different one after I install RPMFusion https://rpmfusion.org/Configuration  dd’ing the image seems to work, but no luck starting from the thumb drive.  Eventually, I give up and unpack the CD ISO and burn a CD.  I can hit that using the hardware boot menu, but it seems to jump right to Windows (gave me the opportunity to bring Windows up to date after several weeks).  Put CD-ROM before the hard disks in the boot order, then I had the chance to pick my OS, including TrueOS.

 

  • OK, so now I’m into my TrueOS environment for the first time since install, but it’s in the command line.  I’m thinking, OK, there are a number of conservative Linux’s that have you log into CLI, then run startx.  Probably easily solved with a few config file tweeks once I Google how to get the GUI up.  I got on another PC and Googled TrueOS and GUI and found THIS:  https://itsfoss.com/trueos-plan-change/
  • [Note: Apologies to the TrueOS devs, you will learn below the abandonment of suport for Windows Steam games was the fault of PlayOnLinux not updating to Python 3] This was a truly “Why is it getting dark in here and why can’t I feel half my face?” moment.   HOW IN THE BLOODY HELL DO YOU GO FROM “WE’RE GOING TO SHOW THE WORLD YOU CAN RUN WINDOWS GAMES BETTER IN A FOSS OS”  TO “GRAPHICAL INTERFACE?  WE DON’T DO THAT ANYMORE” IN LESS THAN A YEAR?  Seriously, the way I understand it, graphical desktops are not  even in the “repos” (or whatever the BSD equivalent is, right now I couldn’t give a turkey).  The TRIAL/installer image was quite graphical.   There is a further fork, www.project-trident.org , that is supposed to be TrueOS with the GUI.  From the download page : “TrueOS and FreeBSD recently changed their bootloader to a new tool written in Lua rather than the traditional bootloader written in Forth. If you experience issues with booting the ISO or the installed system, please file a bug ticket with the FreeBSD project.”  Sorry, if I wanted system breaking updates, I’D RUN WINDOWS ONLY.  Four out of Five hackers recommend anything but Trident for their clients who run games.

 

  • I can erase the partitions TrueOS  created easily enough.  I guess I am now in search of a BSD with enthusiasm for PlayOnBSD [FiftyOneFifty won’t, unless he can find a Python 2 diehard BSD].

 

  • From the “TrueOS Community” Telgram chat:

@all / @channel : The TrueOS “desktop” edition has been discontinued and TrueOS is now a distribution platform (with it’s own server-focused release images as well).

 

  • Project Trident – Community Chat
  • Project Trident Community Channel

 

  • Plot thickens, FiftyOneFifty contacted Rodney Myers (author of the above post).  He was able to tell be PlayOnBSD was stuck in Python 2 (likely all BSDs have moved on) and gave me the handles of a couple Trident devs in the chat who could tell me why TrueOS dropped the deskop alltogether.

 

  • JT (q5sys) “TrueOS decided to focus completely on the base OS, as an attempt to help advance FreeBSD by being a testing bed for future changes.  An example of this would be TrueOS’s implementation of OpenRC and AutoFS enabled by default.”

—-And also from FiftyOneFifty

  • From +DoorToDoorGeek.  Finally, “The promise I was kingdomed”  Pine has announced a PineBook Pro, Rockchip based, metal case, 4Gb RAM portable.  At $199, you could argue you could get a faster Intel on the secondary market, but no way it’s this slim.  Also, a Rockchip upgrade for the 14″ PineBook, phone kits, gaming enclosures, a tablet with specs similar to the original Pinebook, a camera, more.  https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=7093
