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 I've found, the problem was related to motherboard ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+. I've replaced it by warranty, but after half of a year of usage the problem was reproduced by a new one. The further story is: I've bought another motherboard, and when I bring ASRock, that was resting for a month, to the warranty center, it was found, that it works Ok again.

ntfs-3g is fuse-based, I suspect you can't use it to replace such a vital part of a Linux filesystem. Instead you could mount it somewhere in your home and put files you need there.

Makepkg doesn't clone the repository anew every time, there's a check for an already existing clone in its source. If a non-empty clone is found that has the correct remote URL, all makepkg does is fetch the new commits. This will look like the following in makepkgs output: ==> Retrieving sources... -> Updating mpd-git git repo... Fetching origin ...

Sometimes, particular services on some Linux distributions haven't been transitioned to fully comply with systemd, e.g. mysql on Debian. In that case, users are still able to use init startup scripts in /etc/rc*.d or /etc/rc.local. For instance, here's my rc.local file on raspberry pi with debian to restart mysql one minute after bootup: #!/bin/sh -e # # ...

Use schroot to run the other distribution in a chroot. A chroot lets you run programs with the paths that they expect, on the kernel that you're already running. The schroot program helps set up a chroot which is created on demand and has access to home directories, /proc, etc. Running other distributions or other distribution versions is what it's for. To ...

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... ...

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 ...

I think the command you're looking for here is udevadm. You'll use the trigger and test parameters to trigger a rescan of the udev events, and to test a specific event, respectively. I learned this the hard way when putzing around with the new network device naming in EL 7. Good luck!

I've managed to get it running; installed plasma desktop package: pacman -S plasma (more details here) and pointed X to it(appended the following line to ~/.xinit): exec startkde Running startx launches KDE.

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 ...

So, the misbehaving plugin turned out to be windowed widgets. Once I disabled that plugin in the Krunner settings I no longer experience any crashes. I have not yet determined what it is about that plugin that led to the crash but I will report back if I do.

It took me a while to understand how to create a live-usb with arch linux. The solution is simple. I just wrote: $ dd if=/adress/of/iso-file of=/adress/of/usb-stick/sda/not/sdaY/don't/write/the/partition/number I worked a lot with gnome disk utility and gparted. It's okay to clear the partition table of the USB-Stick. One interesting fact is important. ...

The only two options I am aware of that may work are vnc and vpn. with a vpn you would appear to have a static IP address. With vnc your state would be preserved. ssh tunneling would hide ip address issues from X11 but it would still not survive a ip address change. The only reputable advice I have seen regarding changing IP addresses with X11 is don't.

Many programs including firefox write all kinds of files (caches, config files, etc) in the user's home directory or a subdirectory of it and if the partition fills up they crash because such writes fail. 2 options: delete some stuff from your homedir to make more room (you want at least some 10s of MB free for firefox alone, probably more for the others, ...

If you use other window managers with XFCE you can manipulate windows in many ways you don't currently have with XFWM. Compiz in particular with the grid and put plugins give you shortcuts to place windows in various positions like a tiling window manager. You'll want to install ccsm (compiz config settings manager) to manage plugin settings and set your ...

About the duplicate entries, you should change the scanfor option on refind.conf. It is well documented in there, but in your case you would need to set it to use just the manual option, this way: scanfor manual About the default stanza for Arch, you can use the provided ones, just adapt them to your needs. The default one is probably pretty basic too.

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.

You can install dpkg by: yaourt dpkg. If you don't have yaourt, do sudo pacman -S yaourt or pacman -S yaourt. Then just cd to where you put it and dpkg -i package.deb whatever the package may be

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.

What you get from an analog microphone channel when you don't plug in a microphone is usually just static. Pipe that through bzip2, for example, for whitening, mix it with another source of randomness (urandom or another microphone jack), maybe pipe the result through openssl for good measure and what you get should be pretty random. It would be difficult ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Some devices lose firmware on suspend, but btusb does not notice that. For some devices it has been fixed in newer kernels. The fix is that the module is automatically bumped, like you do manually on resume. Anyway it is a kernel bug. You can test newer kernels or report it upstream. A workaround is to make a wake up script that will restart it on ...

10- as mentioned by jasonwryan, use high numbering (90's good). So you rule is not going to be overridden by another one. Use the minimum keys just as you really need. Example, != & GOTO/LABEL instead of directly == ACTION=="add", KERNEL=="sdb*", RUN+="/usr/bin/mount /dev/sdb1 /media" Your target was sdb1 with fixed command, minimize the blind match ...
