AndEX (Android-x86) Marshmallow 6.0.1 64bit with GAPPS and Netflix (!) working very well Build 170923

Posted 09-23-2017 at 12:33 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

My build of Android-x86_64 Marshmallow 6.0.1 has GAPPS pre-installed. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Google Chrome, Gmail and more apps. For example: Netflix, Spotify, Firefox, Aptoide App Manager, Termux and Clash of Clans. The ISO is called android_x86_64-marshmallow-6.0.1-gapps-netflix-970mb-170923.iso. AndEX Marshmallow 64bit Build 170923 is totally error-free (as far as I know). Everything just works!

systemd haters resource page

Posted 09-20-2017 at 11:05 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I've been putting links to relevant systemd resources into this page for my own reference, but enough folks have appreciated it that I thought y'all might like it too:

http://ciar.org/ttk/public/systemd.html

It's very ugly and primitive at the moment. I might turn it into a "real" web page later, or might not.

The "sed" command doesn't need quotes

Posted 09-15-2017 at 02:20 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 12-01-2017 at 11:24 PM by the dsc

You may have some trouble when trying to make sed replacements along the lines of:

sed 's|$originalpath|$otherpath/$filename|'

If the variables contain things like the "-" character, or some other special characters, some of the sed commands may be terminated before they should, in error, as it's taking part of the variable as sed commands, rather than parameters. Something like that. Then the variables would ideally be quoted, but with the outermost quotes,...

SONY XPERIA X Compact - data transfer

Posted 09-15-2017 at 08:29 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

SOLUTION

KDE Connect works just great
