Creating a network share on Linux is quite a bit different than on Windows, but that doesn’t mean that it requires a degree from Tux U. In this article, we take a look at installing and configuring Samba, creating some shares, and then accessing those shares across a variety of platforms.
Valve’s much-anticipated Linux distribution, SteamOS, is here – at least in beta form. Despite it being early days, we couldn’t wait to see what the OS brings to the table (at this point), and what it’d be like installing it to a custom PC (hint: it’s hit-or-miss). One thing we know for sure: Linux’s gaming future is bright.
Keeping good backups of your data is important; don’t be the sucker who loses important files and has to deal with it afterwards! In this in-depth guide, you’ll learn about using rsync and lftp to transfer files, writing your own scripts and automating them, and backing up to external storage, a NAS, and a remote server without passwords.
Tired of dealing with slowed performance or some bizarre partition error with your SSD? Sometimes, the solution is as simple as a secure erase – that is, to bring the drive back to its innate, factory-fresh state. Thanks to Linux, getting this job done is easier than ever. Join us, as we cover multiple methods for getting the job done.
Though still in beta, Valve’s Steam client for Linux is stable, fast, and from what we can tell, matches the feature-set of the Windows and OS X clients 1:1. That being the case, there felt like no better time than the present to dive in, give a tour and relay our experiences with both the client and a slew of games.
