How to Install Windows Subsystem for Linux

The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) runs a GNU/Linux Environment which includes most of the command-line utilities and applications on top of Windows OS. Traditionally there are many ways we can set up Linux OS to work with. Either it can be a dual boot, running through VMWare or VirtualBox, or installing it as our main OS.

Now with Windows Subsystem for Linux, adds a new capability eliminating the overhead of setting up the OS from scratch. It is easy to set up with WSL and Install Linux and get going. To know more about the architecture of WSL refer to “Microsoft Build 2019 – BRK3068”.

Here we will be setting up WSL 2 which is the latest release. WSL 2 is part of Windows 10, version 2004 released in May 2020. WSL 1 used a translation or compatibility layer between Linux and Windows while WSL 2 uses virtual machine technology to allow you to run a real Linux kernel directly on Windows 10.

Using Docker in Windows for Linux Subsystem

Last June, the Docker team announced that they will be investing in getting Docker running with the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). All of this is made possible with the recent changes to the architecture of WSL to run within a lightweight virtual machine (VM), which we talked about in an earlier blog post about WSL 2. Since this announcement, the Docker team has released a Technical Preview of Docker that includes support for running with WSL 2.

This article explains how the Docker Desktop technical preview works as well as how to use the Docker extension with the technical preview.

How it works
This new Docker architecture works a lot like Visual Studio Code’s WSL remote development support in that the Docker CLI running on the host machine executes commands within the Docker Integration Package, which runs on the remote WSL VM.

How I Switched from Windows 10 to Linux Mint

This article is all about my journey on switching from Windows 10 to Linux Mint 20, how I got easily adapted to the Linux environment, and some resources that helped me to set up a perfect Desktop environment.

Uncertainty

Ok, now I have decided to switch to Linux but here comes the first question. Which distro will satisfy my needs both in terms of GUI and other aspects? Linux is not something new to me since I have been working with RHEL based distros in my work for the past 4 years with the command-line.

I know RHEL based distros are good for enterprises but not for personalized desktop environments, at least that’s what I am thinking till now. So I started my research to find the distro that should be easy for me to use and at the same time should have good community support if in case I ran into some problem. Among many Linux distros, I drilled down my list to 4 flavors.

Before deciding the Distro it is necessary you formulate the list of tools/programs or packages needed and check if the distro you choose provides all those features.

For me, I use Linux for two main purposes: one is for my professional development work, writing articles, and second for my personal use like Video editing and Movies. Most of the popular software are created to be compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux like Sublime TextVSCodeVLC Media PlayerFirefox/Chromium browser. Other than these software, cloud-based services make our life easy Like Microsoft Office 365 or G Suite.

How To Install A Device Driver On Linux- 2 Methods › Servo Node

Itching your head due to missing device driver on your machine? Looking for how to install a device drive on a Linux system? Just switched to a new OS, but hardware is not working well? Check out this article to learn how you can install a missing device drive on your Linux system.

Installing and configuring a driver on a Linux based machine is quite daunting for those who just switched to Linux from Windows/Mac, or trying the new OS with dual boot. The widely used windows and Mac operating system often makes it a user-friendly experience when it comes to install device drivers, but in case of a Linux OS, the user might find some of their hardware is not working. Well, this would not be an issue anymore.

Is it challenging to install a device driver on Linux?
For Windows and Mac OS users, it’s really an easy approach to install any device driver as the OS detects those automatically. Also, the users can download the missing ones from the internet, and just click on a simple wizard to have the driver installed.

However, in case of a Linux platform, the process is not enough simple. One of the most common reason is, Linux is an open-source OS and a number of variations available. So, there can’t be a single method that can suit all Linux platforms, and every of the distribution has its own way regarding how to install a device driver on system.

In addition, most of the default Linux drivers are open-source and integrated in the system, and this makes the installation of missing drivers quite complicated, if not included already with OS. Still, most of the useful drivers are automatically detected with popular Linux distros.

Another reason why installing a device driver on a Linux can be complicated is license policies which technically vary among Linux distributions. Such as Fedora restricts to include drivers which are legally prohibited or violate cyber laws. Even Ubuntu asks its users to prevent using closed hardware.

Means, installing a device driver on a Linux can be a bit challenging, but still here mentioned 2 approaches can be helpful.

Two Methods To Find Drivers & Install on Linux
Approach 1: Using Built-in Interface
Approach 2: Using Command Line
