How does a distribution with 25 packagers maintain 8,600 packages in their repository and come back for more? Here's a look at the new Unity Linux Build Server (buildserv) which was recently designed to allow developers and packagers to point and click RPMs into a testing repository after building both x86 and x86_64 in a chroot...all done "automagically" in the background.

PC Linux Build Mostly for Programming and General Use.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2014
This is the first time I've sought to build my own computer. I'll need to use it for programming tasks such as building/running large and complex software, unit tests, debugging etc. which would ideally benefit from CPU and RAM. I will likely use virtual machines (building/testing on other systems etc.) and so I would need power to let me comfortably do that without the system going slow. The graphics is less important but I'd like a smooth experience at 1080 full HD including some desktop effects and video. I don't need a whole lot of storage space. I will probably go with Linux Mint as I'm most familiar with debian-based systems.
It would be great to have some input into the components that I have currently selected. Should I make substitutions, or rethink entirely? What considerations would I need to make in relation to Linux? As far as I can tell, what I found should be compatible with the latest Linux kernel/drivers. Once again this is my first time, so I might be ignora

Is Ubuntu going to loose users/fans, because of Unity maybe in favor of Linux Mint?.Is really Linux Mint experimenting with Debian, because Ubuntu is changing too many things?This post explores a little about Unity, Ubuntu and Linux Mint, the conclusions are yours.
Unity Linux where is it on list of distros?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2010
Looking through LinuxQuestions' list in Distro Reviews, I find no mention of Unity.
I downloaded this distro from the University of Idaho mirror the other day and loaded it on my ancient Dell PIII I had maxed out at a 996 MHz CPU, 512MB RAM and an 80GB ATA 133 hard drive -- it runs GREAT!
I did run into a problem with the new Linux kernel -- it is too much for the P3 to handle (but this was my fault for not knowing the CPU's limitations). Otherwise, the boot time is a tremendous improvement over anything else I've tried, so far on my old machine.
Be careful with passwords on install, per usual. Also, the repos are limited. I recommend downloading the Open Office iso to install on this distro later, if so desired.
Overall, this minimal distro performs admirably and deserves a spot on your review list.
Installing Nvidia proprietary driver 343 on Ubuntu (Unity)/Linux Mint (Cinnamon) x64
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 24, 2014
Hey guys. So I just went out and bought a Sager 8268-s (clevo p150sm-a) With an i7 4910mq and a Nvidia 980m gt. As I am a computer tech by trade, every time i see Windows i get horrible PTSD so i decided to try Linux instead. After many hours of trying to get a dual boot working finally got Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon installed on my computer, but when I went to install the Nvidia driver it landed me in fallback mode which I could not escape. So then I tried Ubuntu 14.04 LTS thinking maybe Mint was incompatible with the driver and the same thing happened.
So here is my method:
(sorry i don't know how to make a code box :/ )
First I log in to get root access:
Then I Update the xorg:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
Then update my system:
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then i go into Virtual terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1) and disable the display manager:
$ sudo service mdm (or lightdm for Ubuntu) stop
Then i install the drivers which i have do
Lightweight custom linux build
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 22, 2011
I am looking for a Linux build that takes up very little memory to boot up. I don't need any of the UI modules.
I need help on choosing from the ones currently available or pointers on building my own. I looked at some Linux distros like Arch Linux and Damn Small Linux, but I haven't decided yet. And also it would be great if someone could help me on how to run a custom program immediately on bootup.
Thanks for the help, in advance.
How to change tty group on Linux (build with buildroot)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 15, 2015
I'm working on Linux Kernel 3.14.28 build with Buildroot for an embedded device.
In /dev/, all ttys are root:root and not root:dialout like a standard Linux. So it is not possible to access any ttyX without being logged as root.
How can I change the tty group permanently to root:dialout? I try to change it with chown command, but it became root:root again on reboot.
