Dear Apple Computer,

Can you please make a new, high end MacBook Pro?  One that is competitive with the Dell Precision line, like the old MBPs used to be?  Upgradable parts, high end GPU, and NOT paper thin?  Oh, and a good keyboard like you used to have would be nice too.

Thank you,
An old customer that is unhappy with every laptop you now sell.

Are you sure he wasn't just trying to squash a nasty spider? #Funny #Sysadmin #Unix #Linux #Humour

Are Dell and Panasonic really the only laptop manufacturers that still use decent keyboards on their systems?

Looking at options for moving away from Fedora Linux on my laptop (Dell Precision M4500) - it simply does not fit my needs any longer (Fedora 21 does not do what I need it to do, and I do not have the time to figure out what changed).  For a Unix compatible environment, options include Slackware, FreeBSD, and Solaris 11.  While I would prefer to stick with Linux, it is not a hard requirement for me (I like Steam, but also have Windows on a second SSD that I can simply use for all that) as nVidia drivers work well in other Unix environments.  Comments welcome. #Fedora #Slackware #FreeBSD #Solaris

Fedora people!  Any thoughts on why XDMCP no longer works in Fedora 21?

This is a change since Fedora 20 - and it does not matter if it was a clean install of F21 or upgrade.  I've tested multiple installs all to the same result.

I seem to be having an issue with XDMCP and Fedora 21.  When I attempt to connect to the remote host (either Solaris 10 or IRIX 6.5.29) the login screen loads, but the mouse and keyboard become completely unresponsive.  Results are the same with firewalld and SELinux enabled or disabled.  I've tried using both "X -query octane :1" and "X -indirect octane :1" with the same results.

Confirmed working in a clean install of F20, but not in a clean install of F21.  Any thoughts?

I'm noticing Nekochan (the IRIX page) is down.  Anybody know what happened?

it's been up since Jan 3rd or so. Went down due to nekonoko's (siteadmin) issues with AT&T line.

How do I change the default of $TERM from being xterm-256color back to xterm for remote connections? It's an issue for me when connecting to UNIX systems that do not support xterm-256color (Solaris 10 and IRIX 6.5.29 in my case).

Dunno. I'd just test and hope that it works. If it doesn't you always have the option of recompiling.

Question for you all: Who supports their previous versions of an OS the best?  Microsoft or Apple?  Seems to be that they all suck at it....

Any chances of a Fedora MIPS build in the future?  I'm considering adding one of these to my collection, and I've always been a fan of MIPS anyway: http://store.imgtec.com/us/product/mips-creator-ci20/

There's interest and one of the vendors was even advertising for someone to do a bringup although the last I heard anything was nearly a year ago
