TuxMachines: Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

8 hours 9 min ago
  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released

    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp.

    Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs.

    I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one.

    UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.

  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals

    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.

TuxMachines: Emma A LightWeight Database Management Tool For Linux

8 hours 26 min ago

Today who does not interact with databases and if you're a programmer then the database management is your daily task. For database management, there is a very popular tool called, MySQL Workbench. It's a tool that ships with tonnes of functionalities. But not all of us as beginner programmers use all Workbench features. So here we also have a very lightweight database manager in Linux, Emma.

Reddit: What's the big deal with Linux vs GNU/Linux?

9 hours 28 min ago

I have seen a lot of info online about GNU and Linux, and this tends to be a slightly controversial topic around these parts with some people referring to a distribution as simply Linux vs some people adamantly describing it as GNU/Linux. I understand that Linux is the Kernal. What part does GNU actually play into a popular distribution like Fedora or Ubuntu and why do some people insist on GNU/Linux vs Linux? Aside from the GPL and some tools the OS uses, where does GNU fit into the whole Linux ecosystem?

LXer: Vale, LOGO creator Seymour Papert, who taught us that code can be creative play

10 hours 21 min ago
Arduino-fiddling kids, and the rest of us, owe Papert a debt of gratitudeBack when dinosaurs ruled the Earth and I was a kid, I received the gift of a "100-in-1 Electronics Kit" that taught me the basics of electrical circuit design as I strung pre-cut wires between springy posts. At the very centre of this kit - its beating heart - a single transistor could be wired to work in an amplifier, or AM radio, or tone generator.…

TuxMachines: LLVM Clang vs. GCC Compiler Benchmarks On FreeBSD 11.0

11 hours 6 min ago

FreeBSD 11.0 continues to ship the LLVM Clang compiler by default (v3.8) while GCC is available via ports and pkg. For this benchmarking, I compared the Clang 3.8 performance to GCC 6.1, GCC 5.4, GCC 4.8.5m and GCC 4.6.4 as obtained via FreeBSD pkg. All of the tests were done on the same system and no other changes were made to the FreeBSD installation between switching out the used compiler.

Reddit: No connection after fresh Arch install.

11 hours 26 min ago

Hello !

I just installed Arch. I had internet during the installation and had no problems. After the installation, XFCE boot and all is working except wifi connection ...

I installed netctl with "wifi-menu", I try to connect to my wifi but I have this message :

• Job for netctl@wlp3s0\x2dSFR\x28ba3.service failed because the control process exited with error code.

• See "systemctl status "netctl@wlp3s0\x2dSFR\x2d8ba3.service"" and "journalctl-xe" for details.

Is somebody able to help me ?

Thank you per advance !

Reddit: Does Android use any bits from GNU?

13 hours 23 min ago

Android uses the Linux kernel, but does it use any bits from GNU? This would affect the way could classify Android.

If we define GNU/Linux (kernel) = Linux (OS), we can call pretty much every distribution Linux and this is the way people commonly use this word. So if Android has GNU+Linux (kernel) we can actually call it Linux (OS). However, if it has <isert_something>+Linux, we cannot call it Linux (Remember how we just defined Linux). It just has the Linux kernel, but not the other stuff that people normally speak of when referring to Linux (OS). Therefore, the real question is: is Android Linux (as in the OS sense, not kernel sense).

Phoronix: Making Use Of eBPF In The Mainline Linux Kernel

13 hours 31 min ago
One of the exciting innovations within the Linux kernel in the past few years has been extending the Berkeley Packet Filter (BPF) to become a more generalized in-kernel virtual machine. The eBPF work with recent versions of the Linux kernel allow it to be used by more than just networking so that these programs can be used for tracing, security, and more...
