Hello guys,
Please tell me, what's the difference between Distribution Sever (2.1GB) and Distribution Cloud edition (100MB).
(In fedora if there isn't any common difference)

Guys, I am running Debian 7.8 ( AMD 64 ) and I am trying to install proprietary NVIDIA driver. However, it failed and show me this ( picture below ). I google something like ' --compat32-libdir' but got nothing. Can anyone tell me what is that means?

i really think thats the problem with all those binary distris out there... i really managed to bring ubuntu systems in nearly unusable states by installing e.g. binary ati-drivers... while in gentoo where you compile at least parts of those drivers it simly recognizes if your system and hardware can be used with those drivers, rather than first install and reboot to check.
That's the reason i upgraded my nvidia-card lately, because the current driver-updates with recent kernels simply did not build instead of leaving me with black screens. 
Same crap with kernels... On [x]buntu systems you have to enable external sources, hope they also satisfy all dependencies, ... instead of just emerge the current vanilla kernel and compile it with your current config. 
Rolling release distris (and if you dont mind getting a little bit deeper - source based distris) are so much better than those LTS-crap. Daily updated software instead of just fixes, allways up-to-date repos instead of backports,...

Question, why is linux considered better than Windows? I agree it's good for supercomputers and servers, but do you really think it is good for the average Joe? They have a tough time with Windows already and Windows is the easiest software to use.

also, recommended linux distro? I generally find them ugly, but ElementaryOS is good looking, but I heard it's going the paid route.

I agree that competition just for competitions sake is useless.
Better help Elementary OS, Papyros or Solus Project.

About this community

This is a friendly community all about Linux (or GNU/Linux if you prefer) Please avoid posting other groups, links to your own sites (unless its relevant one off), or similar spammy type posts. Pays to avoid posting nudity, or men/women in skimpy outfits for any reason (including wallpapers) if you can help it, not everyone finds this acceptable. Anything else Linux related is fine . Try and avoid posting anti-windows,anti-anything. We do not need to put down other OS to make ours seem good - its already the best! *Moderation* Some people appear to be under the idea that moderators can somehow edit a post, or close comments on it. What we can actually do, is only remove the post from the group. This does not remove the post from google+, and any new comments on it will still notify you if you have commented on it. Google catches a vast majority of spam, particularly if you click the report button on it. When you click the report button on it, it immediately hides it from view of other users and flags it for us to either delete or otherwise. Thus , your powers to click report, are equivalent to ours to remove, either one will remove it. We just get the option to ban also. So if you see things that are not Linux related, offensive, or otherwise, click that report button so it hides it from other and flags it for us to remove. Feel free to tag us if you think its vitally important to ban somebody for some reason (not just because you disagree with their opinion). Feel free to suggest new categories!

We all have our favorite distros that we love to talk about and use and a lot of us love to try different distros but have you tried Amazon Linux? Well, I tried it and I have to say I am liking it so far.

Just put any *buntu - Ubuntu, Lubuntu etc. DVD in your drive, restart PC and in your boot menu select to boot from DVD drive. Then simply select something like "Try *buntu" and the linux will start directly from the DVD without need to install it.

Linux commands use a feature called "getopt" to read the parameters.
Any parameter can have an "option flag".
"Long options" start with doublw minus, like --help.
"Short options" have one minus & only one letter, "-h" often means help.

Search for "getopt" on the Internet.

я за прогресс. Благодаря прогрессу я могу сейчас общаться со всем миром. Благодаря google переводчику я понимаю больше языков чем мог бы выучить. Но компьютер это не сам прогресс. Это только первый шаг к прогрессу. Я это стал понимать когда я смог подключаться к интернету.
Я поддерживая то о чем говорится в сообщении. Но мне кажется, что разработчики не совсем понимают что необходимо для успешного компьютера для развивающихся стран.
