VPS or Virtual Private Server is a virtual machine that’s hosted somewhere in the world. A VPS provider divides a physical computer into multiple virtual computers and one can buy and access those virtual machines as a service.
This is the first 10 things article in a series of articles about the Raspberry Pi. In this article, we feature 10 best Raspbian alternatives for your Raspberry Pi. Although the question here is not which is best for but which is best for which task. ?
The netstat (short for network statistics) command line tool helps in retrieving information such as network connections, network interfaces in use, routing tables, masquerade connections. It lists out all the TCP, UDP socket connections, and the UNIX socket connections.
Though Debian stretch is the latest version, it lacks one thing i.e., Firefox Quantum. However, it comes pre-installed with Iceweasel which is an ESR version of Firefox. Today, I'll demonstrate through step by step instructions on how to download the latest version of Firefox from its official website (Mozilla) and then setting it up as the default web browser on your computer. And succeedingly remove the ESR version of Firefox; if it bothers you.
Remember the good old times when the internet was run by humans and used by humans. Well, it is still run by humans but we now have robots using it too.
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has recently been released and what’s better than trying out a freshly launched distro. Lucky for us, it is extremely easy to make an Ubuntu bootable drive that can not only be used for installing Ubuntu but you can use that to run Ubuntu live(without installing) as well. So let us begin step by step.
From time to time, you may want or need to compile a software/program from the source code. This involves compiling C or C++ code into something we can execute in Linux. Depending on the software you wish to compile, it’s often unnecessary to do so. This is because your distribution will likely have the binary form of the program already in the software repositories. In fact, you should choose the binary packages over compiling from source. One reason is that it could potentially introduce problems for your system. However, if ever the time should come where you need compile from source, this guide will give you some basic pointers.
Think about this situation, you have a Ubuntu server and with your home videos or movies, books and other important files that are worth having a backup. You don’t have enough space on your laptop and also on your server the available space is almost gone. You go to a shop and buy a new HDD to make more space on your server but, when you connect it and you run lsbk you see two different discs on your system and you can’t have for examples home videos1 and home videos2 because you want to get them organized properly.
SSH is a famous way to connect to remote machines securely and easily. You can use SSH to connect to your cloud server/VM or a friend’s PC or almost anyone remotely to perform certain activities you want. For instance, I use SSH to connect to my Google Cloud Console so that I can manage my VM via my terminal rather than opening an ssh connection in the browser. Your reason can be different but in the end the goal is to connect to a remote machine locally.
Hello newbies, welcome to the world of Ubuntu [oh wait there...] Xubuntu! So what’s fancy about this distro. Well, I say lightweight, then, in turn, lights up this tiny bulb in your brain faster computing speed, resource saving and ... (you guess what’s more).
Welcome back to our Raspberry Series. This time we are going to touch on how to acquire a Raspberry, set up the raspberry with all the required peripherals and get the essential installations, especially a perfect Linux distro.
Redshift is a program that adjusts the color temperature of your computer screen according to daytime and nighttime. This program is suitable for those people working on computers during night shift as it will hurt your eyes less.
In the last article, we covered the basics of Raspberry Pi. We talked about what Raspberry Pi is and how it can help make amazing projects. In this article, I'll talk about the parts of Raspberry Pi board. So let's get started!
There is a web server that is very conservative in its resource usage and memory footprint. That server is known as lighttpd (pronounced ‘lighty’). Setting one lighttpd instance can be a bit tricky, so this tutorial serves as a clear guide on how to properly configure a lighttpd server on Linux. Understanding the configuration file for each web server instance is key to successfully running lighttpd. This tutorial will also cover adding PHP support for your web servers.
At times system administrators and developers need to use many, complex and lengthy commands in order to perform a critical task. Most of the users will copy those commands and output generated by those respective commands in a text file for review or future reference. Of course, “history” feature of the shell will help you in getting the list of commands used in the past but it won’t help in getting the output generated for those commands.
It is thrilling to explore some of the possibilities technology can introduce. Hiking through mountain thickets for a herbalist, will not be quite an adventure without the interesting possibility to discover a new herb, an indigenous weed or a revolutionary cure for a rare disease.
Gedit is the default text editor that comes pre-installed on Linux with GNOME as its desktop environment. It is extensible with plugins while at the same time simple and easy to use for newbies; pretty much like notepad you find on your Windows PC.
We continue on from part 1 of the LMMS tutorial where we got to do a little experimenting with melodies and beats using the sounds, instruments that came with LMMS. Today we begin exploring options of how to compose music with different time signatures, tempo, or beats per minute. We will also continue to experiment with drum tracks and basslines.
Continuing on from the previous tutorial, we move on to boot DOS systems from floppy images. Many floppies contained games or other software that would have automatically booted once the system started (using the autoexec.bat script). This can be simulated by using a floppy image which is simply a file that represents an entire floppy disk drive.
DOSBox is a great piece of software that allows users to run a huge collection of very old PC software dating back to the 1980s and 1990s on your Linux system. Versions for Windows, MacOS, and others exist as well.
