    SE-Linux setup failure

    Hello guys! I am using Debian GNU/Linux 11. Even though Linux is already a very secure OS, I need today a higher security level again. I am trying to setup SE-Linux, following the steps described in this article: https://wiki.debian.org/SELinux/Setup Everything runs fine, until I try to reboot...

    Framebuffer graphics: scaling and colors problems

    Hey guys! I'm still having fun with the prehistoric laptop I got from my grandmother. I'm now having problems with framebuffer graphics. In order to use the framebuffer to display complex shapes, images, etc. I followed this tutorial...

    It's time for a poll. How long have you used Linux?

    I am new to Linux (≈1y7m), but I everyday get a great satisfaction. I completely agree to Open Source ideas, and Linux was exactly the thing I was looking for. Good performance (way better than I ever achieved with any proprietary software), stability and – the most important – the Open Source...

    Convert a "smart"phone to Linux

    I know about these phones. But today I am REALLY not in position to buy any phone, even these ones! I also looked at Ubuntu Touch, but none of the current "smart" phones – neither my current one, nor my garbage ones – are on the list... I read an article about Lineage OS, PostMarketOS, and...

    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    I have the same concerns! I already did some research. I created a thread about it: https://www.linux.org/threads/manjaro-plasma-mobile-install.37260/ There are not many ideas (Only one at that time: Manjaro with Plasma Mobile), but I am still searching. I swear one day I'll come back on this...

    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    These last years I had fun tinkering with a very old and very low hardware laptop (512 Mb RAM + 1.6 Ghz single-core 32 bits CPU), first running Alpine Linux before switching to Raspbian OS x86. On my two other laptops I use Debian and Linux Mint, but I think I'll soon switch to Debian everywhere.

    Post a screenshot of your Desktop

    Who said geeks and Linux users never goes out of their dens, and never leaves their computers? The creator of the wallpaper really took a photo of my "ideal ride", still a dream for now. Good old Debian, XFCE desktop, on a quite old computer (2008) still running surprisingly fine.

    Linux Mint laptop: screen remaining off/black

    it seems you are right! I can see something displayed when I shine my pocket torch on the screen. How do we achieve this?

    Linux Mint laptop: screen remaining off/black

    Hello, I am using Linux Mint on my HP laptop. I have a screen problem: When I turned on my laptop this morning as usual, the screen was very very dimmed (I think 1.5 to 2.5% of the usual brightness). After a hard shutdown (I forgot the battery is dead ), I turned it back on to see the screen...

    Convert a "smart"phone to Linux

    Hello, I has the project to get a "real" Linux phone (not an altered Linux like Android), both to support Open Source development and because I'm a Linux fan. After some research on the web, I discovered Manjaro with Plasma Mobile. I also found phones shipped with this OS, but I am not in...

    Linux vs solar weather

    You are right, after further research (and reflection) this kind of scenario appears to be unrealistic. This speculation was based on what I know about electromagnetic waves and high-speed and high-energy particles (But this proves I still have to learn, I am still a student). I missed some...

    Linux vs solar weather

    Hi ! I am both a Linux and astrophysics enthusiast. Thus I asked myself a question. Do you know what a solar storm is? It's an emission of very fast particles (protons, neutrons, electrons and ions) and energetic waves (UV, maybe even X-rays) from the Sun. Minor eruptions occurs every cycle...

    Disallow an app to run on WSL

    Yes, you'e right, I have no right to force users to follow my commitments or to agree with my personal opinions, let alone in the context of a Free Software. I had not considered all the approaches to the problem... I still need to think before launching my project. Thanks for this new light...

    Disallow an app to run on WSL

    Ok thanks everyone! I know there is no interest in running Linux in windows rather than as a main OS, but I know it's possible. As I am morally and ethically opposed to Microsoft, I want to make sure they won't ever take any advantage of my work.

    Disallow an app to run on WSL

    Hello, How can I disallow a Linux app from running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux ? (I want it to work only with plain Linux installations)
