Thursday 11th of May 2017 12:06:23 AM
Issue 40 of the MagPi magazine changed everything I thought I knew about computing and technology. In the 1990s and early 2000s, tech publications drew subscribers by giving freebies with their magazines. First, with CDs and then DVDs, magazines came with free demos of games, shareware applications, and even limited internet service provider memberships. In the open source world, magazines gave away Linux distributions ready to be booted and installed. Although it's not done as much in the more

Using screen - the basics

Wednesday 10th of May 2017 06:23:17 PM
When you're connected via ssh on a remote server, a sudden disconnection will likely wreck whatever you're working on and make it difficult to find where you left off. This is where screen comes in handy. It's like working in a virtual terminal that will stay open until you exit out of it. If you suddenly lose Internet connectivity at your workstation (power loss at home, office, etc..) you can reconnect to your server, enter your screen session and continue where you left off.

Getting started with the Orx open gaming engine

Wednesday 10th of May 2017 05:14:40 PM
There is a sea of game engines available on the internet. Some specialize in 2D, some 3D. The languages vary. Some are Java based, Javascript, C#, C++, or perhaps their own special scripting language. The licenses vary. Some are free to use but pay on sales. Some are completely free to do anything you like with.Some have large communities, rich toolsets, and big businesses behind them.

GNOME News: Black Lab Drops GNOME and Further GNOME Experiments in Meson

  • Ubuntu-Based Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 Drops GNOME 3 for MATE Desktop
    Coming about two weeks after the release of Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11, which is based on the Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system using the HWE (hardware enablement) kernel from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 appears to be an unexpected maintenance update addressing a few important issues reported by users lately.
  • 3.26 Developments
    My approach to development can often differ from my peers. I prefer to spend the early phase of a cycle doing lots of prototypes of various features we plan to implement. That allows me to have the confidence necessary to know early in the cycle what I can finish and where to ask for help.
  • Further experiments in Meson
    Meson is definitely getting more traction in GNOME (and other projects), with many components adding support for it in parallel to autotools, or outright switching to it. There are still bugs, here and there, and we definitely need to improve build environments — like Continuous — to support Meson out of the box, but all in all I’m really happy about not having to deal with autotools any more, as well as being able to build the G* stack much more quickly when doing continuous integration.
