  • Devuan Beowulf 3.0 release continues to resist the Debian fork's Grendel – systemd

    The Devuan team has released Beowulf 3.0.0, based on Debian Buster, but with the systemd init system - now standard in Debian - removed.

    The project began in November 2014 as a fork of Debian with an announcement citing "diverging perceptions of the Debian project" after a battle over the adoption of systemd, and promising to be "free from bloat as a minimalist base distro should be." The "vua" in the name stands for Veteran Unix Admins. It is sponsored by Dyne.org, which describes itself as a "non-profit free software foundry."

    This is the third stable Devuan release, the first being Jessie in May 2017 and the second ASCII (based on Debian Stretch) in June 2018.

    Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman told The Reg: "Everybody who has ever worked at that level in the operating system has agreed that systemd is the proper solution. It solves a problem that people have. Distros have adopted it because it solves a problem for them." But he added: "If you don't want to use it, you don't have to use it."

    Devuan is a "protest distro" that is a fork of Debian but without systemd. I've never looked at Devuan before, so I downloaded their standard desktop-live ISO and run through a quick installation.

Python Programming

  • Find the coefficients of the Quadratic Equation of the given two roots with Python

    In this example, you are expected to find the coefficients of the quadratic equation of the given two roots (x1 and x2) with a python function. The Quadratic Equation looks like this ax^2 + bx + c = 0. Our mission is to find the coefficients of the equations which is a, b, and c. The return type from the function is a Vector containing coefficients of the equations in the order (a, b, c). Since there are infinitely many solutions to this problem, we fix a = 1. Below is the method to find the return Vector.

  • 10 most useful Python Dictionary Methods

    Dictionary is used in python to store multiple data with key-value pairs. It works like an associative array of other programming languages. The curly ({}) brackets are used to define a dictionary and the key-value is defined by the colon(:). The content of the key and value can be numeric or string. Python has many built-in methods to do different types of tasks on the dictionary data such as add, update, delete, search, count, etc. 10 most useful dictionary methods of python are explained in this article.

  • 10 most useful Python String Methods

    The string data is the characters of an array that contains one or more characters as value for any programming language. All printable characters such as alphabets, numbers, special characters, etc. are commonly used in the string data. ASCII code and Unicode are mainly used for converting any character to a number that the computer can understand. Python uses Unicode characters for string data. We need to perform different types of tasks based on the programming purpose on the string data such as searching the particular character or characters, capitalizing the first character, making all characters uppercase, etc. Python has many built-in string methods to do these types of tasks very easily. The 10 most useful python string methods are explained in this article.
