A hard link is actually nothing more than a regular directory entry, which in turn can be seen as a pointer to the actual file’s data on the disk.

Ken Starks to Keynote At Ohio LinuxFest

Friday 22nd of August 2014 12:18:34 AM
Everyone who submits a kernel patch, everyone who writes a system call to fix a broken link, everyone who answers a question in a Linux forum, everyone who creates the artwork that makes desktop Linux shine…at the end of that line we, as users, are direct beneficiaries of those efforts.

Paul Venezia is back on the case today saying folks are continuing to blog, thread, mailing list, and forum about their problems with systemd.

Simplicity Linux 14.10 Alpha Is an OS Based on Slacko 5.9.3 and Linux kernel 3.15.4

The developers of Simplicity Linux have based their system on Slacko 5.9.3 and they are using the 3.15.4 Linux kernel. This kernel is one of the newest available and should provide adequate hardware support for the latest devices. Also, unlike previous releases in the series, the new version covers only two flavors, Netbook and Desktop.

It's also a smaller ISO, so users won't need too much space for the actual size of the Linux distribution. Read more

Systemd is a topic that's been discussed in heated terms many times before, of course -- including a lively debate here in the Linux Blog Safari back in May. Read more
