Sighthound Alternative

Hey Community! So I'm about to invest in a home server. Probably a Dell R750. I'm planning to use it to run Plex, MythTV, and hopefully my IP cameras. Unfortunately, Sighthound doesn't think Linux users are important enough to develop for. Does anyone know of a comparable Linux alternative for Sighthound. Doesn't have to be free. I was prepared to drop the full $250 on the Enterprise version of Sighthound. 

Also, i'm thinking I'm going to shell out a bit more cash for a beefier server so I can get into home automation. Any good recommendations of platforms to head towards? Will probably port over to Brillo when it's finally ready for prime time but we're most likely still a year or so off from that.

Does home automation really take that much horsepower? I know the CNC crowd loves Intel Atom mATX systems because they can build that right into their control cabinets. Those systems are plenty powerful enough to handle the work too.

I found the background this morning while searching for "Debian Inside" on Google images. I had a desire for something clean.
My latest Debian 8 is making me a real happy Linux user. Everything has as with any install to be set-up to suit the individuals personal taste.

That looks so evil! I drink tons of coffee, and that looks to me like the most poisonous cup of piss mixed with pollen I've seen! 8D

You need to fix the color balance. Also, look at how the creamy foam on coffee looks like - its cream colored, not poison yellow...

Much of the power behind Linux comes from the command line and the ability for a system to be managed easily remotely. However, for most users from the Windows world or novice Linux administrators, there may be a preference to have access to the graphical user interface for remote management functionality.  

#linux #debian #x2go
X2Go tunnels the remote desktop session through SSH. This part of the process will require setting up the X2Go server and client to access remote desktop

I keep encountering an error when trying to install certain packages.  For instance, I was trying to install devede and got this error:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 devede : Depends: ffmpeg but it is not going to be installed or
                   mencoder but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Search for pinning under apt, especially in https://wiki.debian.org/AptPreferences for Debian.  Check out the warnings, also.

Just completed another Debian 8 install. This time on my wifes desktop. The netinstall cd I used gave me the option of choosing desktop environments which I like. I've have never cared for the Gnome desktop which is the default for Debian. I prefer XFCE.
Unfortunately upon completing the install the drive would not eject and when it finally did, it did not kick out the mini iso disc. I now believe it is damaged and I do not have an extra copy of it.
The copy I do have installs Gnome by default and doesn't give me any other option.

I have Debian installed on a 32gb flashdrive and have set up a desktop just so I can check hard drives for damaged sectors, plus I use it to transfer any data such as documents, pictures, and my billing statements.

I was playing for a while with mintUpdate, and I like the points system, which helps to decide what update and what not.
I mean if there is a correlation in apt-get
How could I use that update approach just with apt-get ?

+Mario Daniel Carugno​​ yeah, I guess we got a little off your original question, was just trying to find ways if you want to be selective about updates, but honestly if it's a recommended update you should do it.

I am having a problem while changing the System Locale to Tamil. I want the default folder names (Downloads, Desktop) etc. to be in English and only the System in Tamil. There seems to be no automatic way to do it. Also when I used the ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and ~/.config/user-dirs.locale it still reverts back to Tamil values on login from English. I find it difficult to use Tamil names on the terminal and wanted the English ones. Any ideas?

I remember you can install two or more language in your system! If this takes no effect , I have no idea about this! I'm sorry!

Tethered netinst on a 2015 11" MacBook Air. The usual suspects (wifi, backlight, suspend, etc) didn't work initially, but can be worked around. The PCIe FaceTime camera doesn't work yet, but it's being looked into. Battery life was fairly lousy compared to OS X, but once you've configured TLP, you can squeeze ~8 hours of actual usage (idles at 4-5W). Sid, with Xfce and compton for compositing. Runs blisteringly fast and no major issues just yet.

It is always good to try to gather information to help form some sort of plan. Examining syslog, and dmesg may provide some clues too.
