    RaspAnd Oreo 8.1 for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Model B+ Build 180717 with Google Play Store, Aptoide TV and TeamViewer

    Softpedia 180717: You Can Now Install Android 8.1 Oreo on Your Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Computer

    "Just two weeks after releasing the first build of his RaspAnd operating system based on Google's Android 8.1 Oreo mobile OS, Arne Exton today announced a new version with support for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ computer.

    RaspAnd Oreo 8.1 Build 180717 is basically identical with RaspAnd Oreo 8.1 Build 180707 except for the fact that it now also supports the latest Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computer, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, which features a more powerful 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE 4.2, faster Ethernet, and Power-over-Ethernet support."

    There is more to sed(1) than s///

    As a followup, bradvan had asked about using sed to delete a block if it contains specific text.

    The following deletes all blocks of text that begin with 'aa' and end with 'cc' if they also happend to contain 'bb' somewhere in between:

    Code:
    Begin='aa';
    End='cc';
    
    sed -e "/^$Begin/,/^$End/{H;\$!d;}; x;/bb/d;\${p;x;}" somefile.txt;
    This makes use of the hold buffer.

    15-year-old desktop kept alive with Debian 9 and Xfce (but not GNOME)

    Yes, I am being dragged, kicking and screaming, as it were, to that conclusion.

    I guess it is hard to put a positive spin on new noises from a disk drive. At some point we will just have to let these old guys go to their well-earned reward of infinite sleep.

    Your issue sounds like a problem with the Nouveau graphics driver. I think you are stuck between a rock and a hard place because your machine is so old. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to use the proprietary Nvidia graphics drivers.

    The hard drive on my Dell Inspiron 700m is showing signs of disk failure. There is a consistent clicking noise while the disk is idle. Everything else works great.

    Crap! I just had another machine crash immediately after going full screen with terminal. So my workaround isn't a workaround.

    Debian 9/Xfce crash resolution (work around)

    Addendum: Debian 9/Xfce crash resolution (work around)

    After installing Debian 9 with Xfce, I quickly discovered that the machine usually had a crash (freeze, lock up, ... whatever) after double clicking the top bar of an application window to maximize the window. It didn't happen every time, but most of the time. The last messages in the previous kern.log after rebooting usually seemed to be coming from the Nouveau graphics driver.

    I doodled with things a while and finally came up with what might be a work around: at the Xfce menu item:

    Code:
    Applications/Settings/Window Manager/Advanced
    I set 'Double click action' to 'Nothing', which had been set to 'Maximize window'. Since doing this a week ago, I have not had a crash.

    Machine Description:
    Pogo Linux Altura (purchased 2003)
    CPU: AMD Athlon(TM) XP 2400+ 2GHz (32 bit)
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. A7V8X
    Display: NVIDIA Corporation NV28 [GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP 8x]
    Display driver: X.Org X server -- Nouveau display driver
    RAM: 3 GB
    Current OS: Debian 9.4
    Desktop Environment: Xfce4
    Disks: 2 120-GB Maxtor IDE hard disks

    This...this should *never* happen

    As it's systemd, I would take a wild guess that you're not supposed to use sudo/su/root login to reboot...

    As I recall, systemctl handles all that... and the reboot/shutdown/poweroff/halt/init/runlevel, etc are all replacements for the sysvinit originals which essentially call systemctl and are only there for compatibility.

    (I'm not a fan of systemd either, not for philosophical reasons, but because it's an ill conceived and poorly designed mess)

    The decline and fall of the Linux forum - Episode V : You can't "educate" people, so just give up...

    Thanks for posting.

    Can't imagine who would feel targeted...

    All I know is didn't want my anti-social "style" to become an annoyance to the Members of this Community.
    Or have the Leader of this board kick me out for not playing nice. And it made me an *sshole.

    I feel as if I have few "peers", so it became Important for me to not do that any more, as I will likely need help also, in due time. And it doesn't cost anything to "be nice".

    Like "now" with this AT&T "gig"...

    Respectfully:
    John J.

    This...this should *never* happen

    I don't know *precisely* what happened, but there are a few changes on that machine that might account for it. This machine was installed via pxe/preseed initially to be an Openstack compute node. At some point down the road, I'd dropped it out of the Openstack cluster and installed Minecraft on it. It served as a Minecraft server for some time, and it always bugged me that it had an Openstack name instead of a minecraft-related hostname. So I switched the hostname on it.

    This is speculation, unfortunately, as the machine has been repurposed again (it's way too powerful to run Minecraft and the 2-3 other services I have on it, so it is now an infra node in the Openstack cluster and one of the other infra nodes was repurposed for Minecraft (fully re-installed with appropriate hostname/disk layout/services this time haha)), but I think the hostname change and systemd didn't agree, or perhaps an Openstack service I *thought* was disabled was causing issues? IIRC I rebooted a few times prior to the above error messages after those changes, though, so I can't say for certain what caused the issue.

    Excellent news. I did a quick Google search on "Dell Inspiron 700m" and saw links going back to 2004. Your painless install is certainly a strong recommendation for Slackware. May your wireless network card connect on the first try!

    Well everything works as expected on this 15 year old laptop. I ended up with Slackware 14.2 32 bit. I did not have to jump through any hoops at all. I will be adding a wireless N usb WiFi network card because the internal NIC only supports wireless a/b protocols. Most recent routers only support g and n wireless protocols these days.

    I am not a fan of SystemD, primarily for philosophical reasons, but I have used a number of distros with SystemD and must say I've found it reliable. I've used Mageia since v. 4 and found the presence of SystemD completely transparent to the user.

    Have you checked journalctl or the logs to see if they cast any light on what broke?

    Dual-booting Again

    I seem to have lost interest in trying other distros now, unlike when I first "discovered" Linux and indulged in frenzied distrohopping.

    Wouldn't happen on Slackware either. If the insanity ever spreads to Slackware I'll likely be joining you in BSD world. I'd have already moved if OpenBSD base was utf8 clean (or still supported iso8859-1) but it looks like they still have work to do on that regard.

    Yeah systemd was jacked. Not sure what caused it. Hard reboot "fixed" it.
