    It's not a bug. It's a safety measure. See Features/OfflineSystemUpdates for the rationale. There's nothing wrong with installing updates using yum/dnf and determining the best time for a reboot...

    Aside from extensions, there's also a gsettings switch for turning animations off:

    $ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations false

    Choice is just the concept of picking an option. It has zero practical value by itself. Options have value. An environment where new options can be developed freely has value. FLOSS is such an...

    In what sense are you using the term multimedia here? Most big distros (Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Debian) qualify as fully multimedia capable. Sometimes you'll be required to enable a few extra repos...

    Is there something wrong with the statement I made? It's a simple statement of
    fact, nothing more. Nobody's going to fix the underlying problem simply by ignoring statistics.

    I was trying to understand why someone would get offended over a photo of a female in a geeky context, hence the analogy. The male-female ratio in IT is roughly inverse to what one can expect to find...

    If someone had written an article talking about an outreach program for men in child care and put a photo of some dude doing child care stuff in it, would you be equally offended?
  9. Not sure whether I've grasped what the issue is,...

    Not sure whether I've grasped what the issue is, but in case you were trying to use `systemctl isolate ...' for this: don't. This is likely not what you want and will almost certainly kill processes...

    The ironic part of this conflict is that those gentlemen who like to present themselves as legitimate followers of the `School of True Unix Paradigms & Ideas' are in fact actively contributing to...

    But the name is dnf's best feature, since it's so easy to type on a QWERTY keyboard. In contrast, y-u-m is assigned to only one finger (right index). That's an ergonomic catastrophe.
  12. I'd say this is the sort of situation that a)...

    I'd say this is the sort of situation that a) should almost never happen in practice and b) should be handled by an admin manually, given that the OOM killer was likely disabled on purpose for that...

    That ain't so. Hell, would our systems suck if they were *that* fragile. I mean, we're not talking about MS-DOS here.

    To begin with, each and every program is inherently limited in terms of memory...
  14. This whole comparison between cgroups and nice is...

    This whole comparison between cgroups and nice is pointless. Cgroups does resource partitioning. Nice works on isolated processes. The two concepts do overlap to some degree but are otherwise...
  15. Right. However, practically speaking, those...

    Right. However, practically speaking, those `kernel features' aren't features at all as long as they're not exposed in a meaningful way. A feature that's not usable without e.g. hacking together a...

    Seriously, from where Lennart stands there's not much to worry about:


    Almost every general purpose distro that matters has adopted his work.
    Having a healthy number of notably incompetent...

    Arch users who reinstall on a regular basis are not doing it right. The whole point of using a rolling distro is to avoid reinstallations.

    When Galileo Galilei was accused of heresy and put before a tribunal of the catholic church, he invited his judges to take a look through his telescope. They refused and said: ``Don't bother us with...

    I'd recommend getting a Qualcomm Atheros based card that works with the ath9k driver on Linux. A few examples:

    3T3R MIMO:
    SparkLAN WPEA-128N

    2T2R MIMO:
    Unex DNXA-116
    Unex DNXA-97
    Unex...

    Actually, that's not all it does. Speed was never even the primary motivation behind it. In fact, socket activation solves the exact problem (manual configuration of relationships between services)...
