Rarely a website butchered its own interface so bad as Yahoo did to yahoogroups

Posted 07-04-2017 at 01:19 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

You barely can search within a given group you're subscribed to -- better luck searching from google search with "site:groups.yahoo" and things like that.

Congratulations, yahoo, now hackers/defacers don't have anything to do there.

It's an old, massive transformation of a previously functional UI into a useless, unintuitive, clump of "featured bugs". I thought it would be fixed eventually, but it's just as bad as the first time they've ruined it....

Create your own Linux distro based on ExTiX 17.5/Ubuntu 17.04!

Posted 07-03-2017 at 04:22 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

In ExTiX 17.5, Build 170508, with KDE 4.16.12 and KDE Frameworks I have included (pre-installed) Refracta Tools, which makes it possible for you to very easy and fast make your own Ubuntu 17.04 (or Ubuntu 17.10) distro.

Watch a slideshow showing how Refracta Snapshot works...

OpenRC+sysv fixes Debian's (my Debian's) shutdown/reboot problem

Posted 07-02-2017 at 11:50 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 07-05-2017 at 11:31 AM by the dsc

For some reason it was failing to unmount everything, and then simply halting indefinitely.

OpenRC/sysv seems to work fine, so far.

A console install is probably advised, if anyone is considering doing the same. After installing openrc, the install script will suggest a kind of pre-reboot line that will "manually" deactivate the services and then you should reboot. Which I did with sysreq, even though I probably shouldn't have.

I think they...

NFS-RAMBOOT - How-To for Debian 9 Stretch

Posted 06-30-2017 at 05:09 PM by IsaacKuo

NFS-RAMBOOT adapts my RAMBOOT hack to NFS root (PXE or not). On boot, it extracts an OS tarball from an nfs share into local RAM (recommended 3+GB of RAM). The result is like a very fast SSD.

Why do this? Compared to RAMBOOT, loading (and saving) the OS tarball over gigabit ethernet can be faster than a local hard drive or USB drive, if the file server has an SSD or a faster hard drive (compare 3.5" drives to 2.5" laptop drives, for example). Also, having the OS tarballs...

Hurdles of a customizer

Posted 06-30-2017 at 04:42 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 06-30-2017 at 04:44 PM by the dsc

So I've recently learned that Slim Display Manager is obsolete and ideally should be replaced with something else. Perhaps that's why systemd doesn't always actually turn off the power or reboots when it should, I thought, as I've read that it wasn't keeping up to date with systemd's stuff.

I've spent almost "the entire day" testing some other ones, and somehow none works just right. They mess with environment variables so that either the notification daemon doesn't work...
