Reddit: Version 4.4 kernel causing system freezes?

4 hours 52 min ago

So the story:

I was using an HP laptop with a weak AMD processor using Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS. It worked perfectly. I had no freezes or any glitches to speak of.

My fiance has another HP laptop with an Intel Pentium processor, and after the latest update for Ubuntu MATE, it system freezes. It could be after a couple minutes, sometimes after a couple hours.

So I figured I should just reinstall Ubuntu MATE on her computer. No dice. Same problem. Then I tried Linux Mint MATE. Again, same issue.

From what I gather, these system freezes could be attributed to a bug in the 4.4 version of the kernel that affects the microcode of the Intel processor, specifically Pentium, I believe. If this is true, why the hell hasn't it been fixed yet? Or is there another reason why my system would freeze using two different operating systems? The graphics are integrated Intel HD graphics and the CPU is 2.16 Ghz with 4 GB of RAM. So it's not about the CPU being overworked or the RAM being overused.

If this problem persists, I may end up just not using Linux altogether because this is, quite frankly, utterly ridiculous.

LXer: Reviving Old Macs Using Linux

5 hours 24 min ago
All Macintosh computers from about 2006 onwards were made using Intel CPUs and installing Linux on these computers is a breeze. You don't need to download any Mac specific distro -- just choose your favorite distro and install away. About 95 percent of the time you'll be able to use the 64-bit version of the distro. On CoreDuo Macs, from 2006, you'll need to use a 32-bit version.

  • Red Hat CEO Tells LinuxCon Crowd What Makes Linux Stand Out

    Five years ago, on the 20th anniversary of Linux, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst delivered a keynote address at LinuxCon. Today, he returned to the LinuxCon stage here to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Linux, bringing a message not all that different from the one he shared in 2011.

    The Linux world, however, is a different place in 2016, with one-time mortal foe Microsoft now embracing the open-source model. Whitehurst briefly shared the keynote stage with Wim Coekaerts, corporate vice president of enterprise open source at Microsoft, which is something that wouldn't have happened five years ago. Red Hat and Microsoft today partner at multiple levels, as the message and value of open source has continued to expand.

    During his keynote, Whitehurst said that it's hard to talk about the history of Red Hat without talking about the history of Linux and vice versa, as the two are very much intertwined. Back in the 1990s when Red Hat got started a few years after Linux's birth, Whitehurst said his company didn't have a great business model. At one point, Red Hat actually tried to sell shrink-wrapped boxed software at big box retailers. Around 2001, Red Hat first introduced the enterprise open-source software model that is the core of the company's business today. The basic idea is to bundle open-source software together, test and certify the software, and then provide multiple years of enterprise-grade support.

We invited people from different diverse background to join us for a night of fun and open conversations (Singapore is a cosmopolitan country!)

  • Sysprof + Builder

    After the GNOME 3.20 cycle completed I started revamping Sysprof. More here, here, and here. The development went so smoothly that I did a 3.20 release a couple of weeks later.

    A primary motivation of that work was rebuilding Sysprof into a set of libraries for building new tools. In particular, I wanted to integrate Sysprof with Builder as our profiler of choice.

    On my flight back from GUADEC I laid the groundwork to integrate these two projects. As of Builder 3.21.90 (released yesterday) you can now profile your project quite easily. There are more corner cases we need to handle but I consider those incremental bugs now.

  • GUADEC… Its been fun.

    I’m not really much of a traveler or outgoing in any way. So when I was invited to GUADEC, I wasn’t very sure about it. It took some encouragement from my mentor and a fellow GSoC mate to convince me. And… I’m glad I went!

    It was one of those things that I could not have experienced from my comfy chair to which I reserve myself for the greater part of my day. In fact this trip makes me feel I might be wrong about social interactions not being time well spent for me (but then again I don’t exactly buckle down into ambitious projects, so you’re free to call me ignorant).

  • gnome-boxes: GSoC Evaluation

    This post is meant to be a final self-evaluation and self-analysis of my work for gnome-boxes during the summer. The initial project idea was about implementing/fixing a bunch of SPICE-based features/bugs to/in Boxes. The list of bugs of the SPICE component has since changed, as some new bugs have been discovered and some old ones have been closed, so I made a summary of my involvement...

3 open source alternatives to Office 365

It can be hard to get away from working and collaborating on the web. Doing that is incredibly convenient: as long as you have an internet connection, you can easily work and share from just about anywhere, on just about any device. The main problem with most web-based office suites—like Google Drive, Zoho Office, and Office365—is that they're closed source. Your data also exists at the whim of large corporations. I'm sure you've heard numerous stories of, say, Google locking or removing accounts without warning. If that happens to you, you lose what's yours. So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis. Yes, the plant actually asks to be watered. Read more
