• Why can't Ubuntu 16.04 LTS shut down?

    update 2016/07/01 6pm: SOLVED. Details here (but DO read anyway the whole post, because the cause of this problem on your computer may still be one of those below!) I just installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a relative’s laptop (HP Pavilion G6, in case it matters) alongside Windows 8. So far, everything works so well (*) that Ubuntu doesn’t want to shut down. If I click on shutdown, the user session ends, and nothing happens.
  • Review, The CentOS 6 Linux Server Cookbook

    The CentOS 6 Linux Server Cookbook is a Packt Publishing title first published in April 2013. You can buy it in paper format (about 370 pages) or as an ePUB or PDF file (black and white only, whereas the ePUB version is in colours). In general I believe, especially in these times of PRISM and widespread economic crisis, that the more people learn how to run their own Free Software servers, the better.
  • Help request, why is my Linux so damn slow?

    I’ve discovered Linux in 1995 and I have been using it as my only home/work operating system since then. I still love it and want to continue to use and promote it, but in the last 2⁄3 weeks it’s become almost impossible. In this page I explain why, hoping to get and collect useful suggestions. First, hardware and software details. These days, I’m using Fedora 14 x86_64 on a computer with an ASUS M3N78-EM motherboard and 8 GB of RAM.
