The trick It seems impossible to separately set wallpapers for the main screen and the second screen. What can be done however is to set a wallpaper, and have it spanned over two screens.

Packages (like postfix) may install or generate configuration files (files that usually go in the /etc folder). During this process, there may be options that can be changed by the user. On installation, you are usually asked to set these options. In the case of postfix, it involves what type of server you're running, the hostname, and allowed IP addresses ...

There are a few GUI tools available to control and monitor AMD open-source graphics under Linux but none of them are as easy to use or install as AMD's CCC: DriConf - GUI for controlling the direct rendering settings (OpenGL) of all open-source drivers.

It seems that /lib/udev/rules.d/64-xorg-xkb.rules is responsible to put in in the udev database. I guess the evdev driver picks it up from there. (Udev maintains an in-memory(?) database, and the driver reads the entries related to “input”.) The application of the rules “evdev” is probably hardcoded in that driver. (I.e. xkb_model and xkb_layout is from ...

A rootkit is the nastiest piece of malware you can have on your system and basically they're mostly self-hiding toolkits used by blackhats, crackers and scriptkiddies, to avoid the prying eyes of the sysadmin. So it also takes a lot of skill to detect these and rootkit removal is always done through re-install. In the README of Rkhunter, it is clearly ...

The tutorial step 2 asked to create a new user: hduser. So if you decided to adopt this username for the Hadoop user, the path of start-all.sh should be: cd /home/hduser/hadoop/bin/ start-all.sh Or if installed system-wide: /usr/lib/hadoop/bin/
