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.
The EOMA68 Upgradeable ARM Board/Computer Passed Its Funding Goal
The open, upgradeable ARM development board that traces back to the failed KDE Vivaldi project managed to pass its funding goal just in time. This open-source hardware project currently powered by some older Allwinner hardware managed to raise more than $170k.
It looked unlikely up until the very end that they would pass the $150,000 USD goal for this EOMA69 project that makes it easy to upgrade ARM boards (assuming newer and compatible ARM boards/cards do indeed get rolled out) and even an interchangeable laptop. However, on the final days they managed to beat their goal and raise a total of $171,000 from 2,306 individuals. Less than one month ago they were just at $50k.
Vale, LOGO creator Seymour Papert, who taught us that code can be creative play
Back 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.
All of these projects, detailed in the accompanying instructional guide, really only served to whet my appetite. I quickly ditched that book because I’d learned enough to be dangerous and try wiring my own circuits.

LLVM Clang vs. GCC Compiler Benchmarks On FreeBSD 11.0
For those interested in C/C++ compiler performance, for some fun numbers to dive into this weekend are LLVM Clang vs. GCC benchmarks atop FreeBSD 11.0 RC1 AMD64 on an Intel Xeon Haswell system.
- LLVM 3.9 RC3 Released, Final Coming Out Soon
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.
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?submitted by /u/YourBrainOnJazz
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.
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 !

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).submitted by /u/punaisetpimpulat
