Anyone familiar with Linux likely has some knowledge of the Raspberry Pi. That may not necessarily equate to having experienced one of the greatest embedded platforms on the planet.
There are basically three main gaming consoles on the market. These are the Playstation, Xbox and the Wii. Each of these have different varieties or versions. The PlayStation has a version 1, 2, 3, and 4. In a previous article about RecalboxOS I covered an Operating System (OS) which included a Playstation 1 emulator (the OS is for the Raspberry Pi). In this article I want to cover the emulators for the Playstation 1 and 2 for a standard Linux system.
Not only has the DNS become the standard but lazy way to serve out domain-related information for other purposes and protocols, DNSSEC is now relatively easy to implement.
For the past year, I've been teaching students how to build and program robots using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 platform. From the outset, I wanted to find a way to use Scratch and other open source programming languages to extend the capabilities of the platform. That search led me to BrickPi, a Raspberry Pi add-on board from Dexter Industries that easily interfaces with Mindstorms sensors and motors.read more
If you want to know what's going on with your Linux server, start with these Linux monitoring commands.
The developers of the PCLinuxOS distribution announced the release of PCLinuxOS 2017.03 KDE Edition, an updated install medium that ships with all the latest KDE technologies and applications.
The Ibus typing booster is a predictive text input method. The project goal is to empower existing keyboard layouts with predictions to allow users to boost their typing speed without compromising on data accuracy. This project started in 2010 with... Continue Reading →
I sat down at the Open Source Leadership Summit to record a podcast with Mikeal Rogers, who heads the Node.js Foundation, a collaborative project under the Linux Foundation.read more
OSX-Arc Collection Optimized from the original Arc theme with transparent elements for Linux.
Raspberry Pi is built to boot up and run from the SD card. This tutorial shows you the steps to boot up and run Raspberry Pi from an external hard disk.
You know, when you email someone and you get back a bounce that says the person is out of the office, and that they won't be reading emails (even though they probably are reading them anyway and probably will respond anyway, because, really, who goes off email these days?). Anyway, the application for this patent was filed in 2010, way, way, way after OOO messages were quite common... ... As the EFF notes, going over the history of this patent demonstrates why the US Patent Office is so bad at this stuff.
Many people may want to tweak their own version of a Linux Operating System (OS) but are unsure how to do it. Some may think it is too hard to do. If you have a Raspberry Pi and a few free hours to play around with it then you may want to try this out.
In this tutorial, we will be going through the installation steps for Elasticsearch followed by the installation of Kibana and then we will use Kibana to store and retrieve data. Elasticsearch is a production ready search engine written in java and is extremely powerful. It can be used as a standalone search engine for the web or as a search engine for e-commerce web applications.
Three years ago, the Heartbleed vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library sent the software industry and companies around the world into a panic. Software developers didn't know enough about the open source components used in their own products to understand whether their software was vulnerable - and customers using that software didn't know either.
Java, the famous programming language that is useful to us at almost every time in our daily work. Directly or indirectly we work on Java software almost everyday. My fellow developers, coders, programmers also use to develop Java software that is why I decided that it would be worth to write an article on it.
When I first started considering container use in production environments, a question came to mind: When a container may exist across a cluster of servers, how do I get others (people, or applications) to connect to it reliably, no matter where it is in the cluster?
Croteam have put out yet another stable build of The Talos Principle, which brings improvements for the Vulkan version. I did some fresh benchmarks and the different is quite amazing.
Aries’ “M6UL” COM expands on an i.MX6 UltraLite SoC with 4GB eMMC, dual Ethernet ports, and dual CAN ports, as well as DRM ID, encryption, and secure boot. Germany-based Aries Embedded has announced a “M6UL” computer-on-module as a drop-in replacement for its earlier i.MX28-based M28 COM. The new device keeps the SODIMM-style form factor, but advances to NXP’s i.MX6 UltraLite (UL) SoC.
