One of the most common reasons people give for not contributing (or not contributing more) to open source is a lack of time. I get it; life is challenging, and there are so many priorities vying for your limited attention. So how can you find the time in your busy life to contribute to the open source projects you care about?
Monitoring IT infrastructure is essential to ensure its stability. Choosing an
efficient, scalable, customizable, and light-weight solution for this has always been a
challenge with changing requirements. Custom scripts can be used to achieve this smartly
unlike the agent-based monitoring method in which all data defaulted by the monitoring
tool used will be collected. This article describes the custom script method for
monitoring system resources. In this method, the data collector(s) scripts running on
data collector node will poll the target systems for data and so can decide on what data
to be pulled.
Linus Torvalds took to the stage in China for the first time Monday at LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China in Beijing. In front of a crowd of nearly 2,000, Torvalds spoke with VMware Head of Open Source Dirk Hohndel in one of their famous “fireside chats” about what motivates and surprises him and how aspiring open source developers can get started. Here are some highlights of their talk.
What’s surprising about Linux development
Sometimes on a network it is beneficial to know the Operating System (OS) of a machine. Accessing a system is easier when you know the OS because you can specifically search the Internet for known security holes in the OS. Granted, security holes are usually patched quickly, but you need to know when a security hole exists.
Scanning your own network to detect the OS types can help you to see what a hacker will be able to see about your network.
in this article we will be discussing diagnostic Linux network command that you should know!!
In Linux, there's a command line tool that you can use to create/verify checksum. It's dubbed cksum. Most vendors offer a checksum (or a checksum-like code) corresponding to the file(s) being downloaded. If the file doesn't behave in an expected way, user's can recompute the file's checksum and compare it with the original checksum provided by the vendor to see if the file is intact or got corrupted.
Another useful command for the Linux Foundation Certified SysAdmin (LFCS) is the 'sed' Command. The initials stand for 'Streaming EDitor'.
The 'sed' Command is an editor that edits the file as a stream. To stream a file is to pass it from another command using pipes (> or |) or load it directly into 'sed'.
Ubuntu Cleaner is a tool that makes it easy to clean your Ubuntu system.

The Ztorg malware hid in apps on Google's Play Store to send premium-rate SMS texts and delete incoming SMS messages on Android devices.
Sometimes, while working on the command line, you arrive at a point where there's too much text on the terminal screen, and none of that is relevant to you. So, in order to avoid distraction, you'd want to clear the terminal screen. Those new to the Linux command line may not know that there exists a dedicated command line utility that does this work for you.

Robert Kaye is definitely a brainz-over-brawn kinda guy. As the creator of MusicBrainz, ListenBrain and AcousticBrainz, all created and maintained under the MetaBrainz Foundation, he has pushed Free Software music cataloguing-tagging-classifying to the point it has more or less obliterated all the proprietary options.
In the history of computer games, very few are as influential as Colossal Cave Adventure. Initially developed in 1976 by Will Crowther and expanded by Don Woods in 1977, Adventure was the first interactive fiction game and inspired countless other computer games. Adventure directly or indirectly led to the entire corpus of text-based adventure games, and by extension, graphical adventure games.
Thecorpora’s Scratch-ready “Q.bo One” robot is based on the RPi 3 and Arduino, and offers stereo cams, mics, a speaker, and visual and language recognition. In 2010, robotics developer Francisco Paz and his Barcelona-based Thecorpora startup introduced the first Qbo “Cue-be-oh” robot as an open source proof-of-concept and research project for exploring AI capabilities in […]

Many people find it way too hard sometimes to enter long commands or search forums to find the way they can solve it. Today I am going to tell you how to use a simple, small software to solve most of the boot related problems. This tool is known as Boot Repair Tool. Now no more talk and get to work.
Lua is a lightweight, compact, and fast programming language designed as an embeddable scripting language. This cross-platform interpreted language has a simple syntax with powerful data description constructs. Lua aims for simplicity, small size, performance and portability. It has automatic memory management and incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.
Kdump is a way to acquire a crashed Linux kernel dump, but finding documents that explain its usage and internals can be challenging. In this article, I'll examine the basics of kdump usage and look at the internals of kdump/kexec kernel implementation.
