You will have to download and install OpenBLAS. Download latest stable version from https://github.com/xianyi/OpenBLAS/zipball/master. Extract and run make and make install. You will need gfortran to compile. Make sure you have numpy installed as well, you should be able to install that from an archive.

Seems like an HW component is the best idea. There are some HW generator IC out there, but you have to trust them as they come. Two probably good solution are to induce component to create noise; two major solution seems to be temperature bias and the avanche noise created with a diode (see ...

You could use pycsprng.py. Cryptographically secure? I'm not quite sure, but I would like some peer-review. python pycsprng.py | pv | dd of=data.file bs=1024 count=1000 The pipe to pv is optional, and will just help you know how much data has been transfered. You may find that larger block-sizes (bs) increase perfomance. You will have to adjust the ...

Two programs that can increase the entropy pool without requiring extra hardware are rng-tools and haveged. rng-tools uses RNGs available in modern CPUs and chipsets, haveged uses modern CPU randomness (cache behaviour etc.). Both are available in Arch, and the Arch wiki has an interesting page discussing them. I haven't tried using them to generate a ...

If it's a rolling-release that's not so bleeding-edge you're after, take a good look at Tumbleweed from OpenSuse. Arch is generally intended to be a pure upstream system, and as such is pretty bleeding-edge. Antegros and Manjaro are Arch based systems that can lag a week or so behind, but that's probably not what you're after.

I hate to tell you this, but I have bad news: Start at the Linux Foundation Open Printing Project Database. Click Printer Listing. On the Printer Listing Page, choose Manufacturer: HP, and Model: deskjet 1050 j410a. Click Show This Printer, and arrive at this results page The results Page states: Color inkjet printer, this is a Paperweight and ...

Unfortunately /dev/random is also not suitable for use in a one-time pad, at least not the kind of one-time pad (with provable security guarantees) that most people imagine when they think of or implement one-time pads. Most of the information below is summarized from the (very long) article at http://www.2uo.de/myths-about-urandom/ The problem is that ...

After experimenting with the BIOS settings I finally was able to get Linux to boot using WoL! Apparently I had to enable both Power On By PCI Devices and Power On By PCIE Devices for it to boot under Linux using WoL. To be sure that was the cause I tried all combinations. Just to be thorough I tried disabling them both to see whether that would make it ...

As yoonix noted, you are Doing It Wrong: the configure script should be run ONCE with ALL of the options you want to specify: ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-pdo-mysql \ --with-openssl --enable--mbstring --with-libmbfl Calls to configure are not cumulative - they overwrite each other. The last one wins. Each ...

On Arch you can use debootstrap to set up Debian or Ubuntu chroots. It's as easy as debootstrap jessie ./jessie-chroot http://httpredir.debian.org/debian (to set up a Jessie chroot; Ubuntu variants are similar). You can also deploy the Open Build Service locally and use that to build for all the main distributions. That's a bit more complicated though... ...

Some clarifications: nvidia-340xx-utils is not the driver itself, it is utilities for the (if I've understood correctly) proprietary driver which you haven't installed. xf86-video-* is open source video drivers, of which xf86-video-nouveau is the nvidia compatible one. pacman -Ss searches for packages, whereas sudo pacman -S installs them. Use sudo pacman ...

As with all questions like this, the answer is to write a PKGBUILD for the package yourself (after you are done, consider putting it on the AUR to make other folks' lives easier :D). Note, you should not ever manually install programs on Arch (or really any distribution with a package manager unless you are willing to deal with manually updating that ...

This read error is likely a problem with the DVD. Consider using ddrescue which can read past the error. Remember that the error will remain as zero's in the copied image.

This is pretty complicated. Let's explain the commands in order you've enumerated them. telinit Various arguments to telinit directly translate to various (different) subcommands of systemctl. As per telinit(8) (documentation from systemd package): 2, 3, 4, 5 Change the SysV runlevel. This is translated into an activation request for ...

Use a modern partition editor, such as gparted. Live boot using an Gnu/Linux that has gparted. ( There is a partition editing live distro that you can use). Start gparted Resize the Windows partition Add a new partition in the gap left behind. Done.

Look at the first line in /etc/shadow: it seems that one field is missing
