During regular software updates in Ubuntu Linux distros, you may encounter a situation where some packages have been kept back and are not updated. This could lead to disparities in the version of packages across different systems.
Harnessing the power of NVIDIA GPUs on Debian and Ubuntu systems often requires navigating a maze of configurations and dependencies. NVIDIA’s CUDA Toolkit, essential for GPU-accelerated tasks, can simplify this with Docker. By containerizing the toolkit, developers ensure a consistent, streamlined, and optimized environment across systems. In this guide, we’ll detail the steps to seamlessly integrate the CUDA Toolkit within a Docker container for these popular Linux distributions.
Creating a static website and hosting it has never been easier, thanks to modern web development tools such as Jekyll. Jekyll is a static site generator powered by Ruby that allows you to create fast, secure, and easily maintainable websites. When combined with Nginx, a powerful HTTP server and reverse proxy, you have a powerful and flexible website deployment mechanism. This guide explains how to set up Jekyll with Nginx as a reverse proxy on Debian and Ubuntu systems.
Your Debian Linux installation may include multiple Python versions and thus also include multiple Python binary executables, and it’s possible to change the python version that the system is using. In this tutorial, you will see how to install multiple versions of python, and change the python version on Debian using the
update-alternatives python command. This will allow you to run various Python programs including legacy scripts. Check the sections below to learn how.
netstat Linux command is used by system administrators to see information about network connections. Netstat is a powerful utility that can print network connections, routing tables, interface statistics, masquerade connections, and multicast memberships. It has been superseded by the ss command in recent years so you may get the “bash: netstat: command not found” error, but is still a viable tool for network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
More often than not, on our Linux system, we can find two or more applications of the same type installed: it is typically the case of text editors, but we can also have multiple web browsers, for example. Setting the default application used to perform a specific task system-wide, however, can sometimes be problematic. To solve this problem, on Debian and Debian-based Linux distributions, we can use the alternatives system and the “update-alternatives” tool.
OnlyOffice is an open source office suite compatible with both open and proprietary documents formats. The suite includes applications to create and edit text documents, spreadsheets and presentations. The “community” version of OnlyOffice is cost-free and can be installed both as a service, or in the form of classic desktop editors.
A file that has the
.DEB file extension is a Debian software package file. They contain software to be installed on Debian Linux or another Debian-based Linux distro such as Ubuntu Linux. When you install software from a DEB file, your system may need to install dependencies for it to run correctly. This is common behavior for
apt package manager as well, so you may already be familiar with package dependencies. In this tutorial, we will show you how to check the package dependencies for a DEB file on Debian and Ubuntu via the Linux command line.
The jDownloader application allows you to download files from many links simultaneously. It comes with handy features like pausing and resuming downloads, extracting contents from compressed archvies automatically, and setting maximum bandwidth usage, among other things to help you manage all of your downloads. It is an open source tool available for Linux systems and will make bulk downloading much easier for you.
The Linux kernel sits at the core of all Linux systems, including thousands of GNU/Linux distributions, the Android mobile operating system, and tons of embedded systems, networking devices, etc. Its popuarity and ubiquity can be credited to the fact that it is free and open source. Anyone can download the Linux kernel, make changes to it if they wish, and compile it for their own commercial or private use.
