Reddit: Linux driver support for Thunderbolt PCIe cards

Tuesday 8th of November 2016 09:21:13 PM

Our research center plans to purchase a decent (expensive) Dell Precision 7810/7910 workstation with Thunderbolt PCIe card for future upgrades with an external GPU. However, I found the card is not compatible with the Ubuntu 14.04 that Dell can install at purchase. Has anyone make a Thunderbolt PCIe card work properly on more recent kernel? If not, any plan from the Linux community to support this card for connecting external GPUs in the near future? Thanks!

LXer: IoTSeeker Scanner Finds Smart Devices With Dumb Credentials

TuxMachines: SUSE: Unleash the Tiger!

Tuesday 8th of November 2016 06:42:08 PM

This is our first dispatch from the front lines: Washington DC. And I am not speaking of the election front lines, but of the Linux front. Linux Journal has come to SUSECon this year to, among other things, gauge the state of the world concerning all things open source. To plagiarize every president at the start of every state of the union address, the state of Linux is strong!

Especially so if the “state of SUSE” is any indicator. Suse revenues and total billings have increased 18% this year, 24% in the US. More interestingly, and perhaps more indicative of the global, tidal-wave sized trend, their number of $1 million++ contracts signed this year grew 22% while the dollar value of those deals grew a staggering 65%. So SUSE has signed more larger contracts for more, much larger deployments than ever before.

TuxMachines: Embedded PC runs Ubuntu on Tegra TX1

Tuesday 8th of November 2016 06:32:04 PM

Connect Tech’s “Rudi” mini-PC runs Ubuntu on an Nvidia Jetson TX1 COM with 4GB LPDDR4, eMMC and mSATA, 5x USB, 2x GbE, mini-PCIe, and -20 to 80°C support.

Like many recent embedded computers. Connect Tech’s 135 x 105 x 50mm Rudi Embedded System fudges the line between mini-PC and a full-fledged industrial PC. Aimed at “deployable computer vision and deep learning applications,” the system ships with a Linux For Tegra R24.2 distribution based on 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 pre-installed on 16GB of eMMC. Like Connect Tech’s Rosie embedded computer, the Rudi runs Nvidia’s quad-core, 64-bit Tegra TX1 SoC on Nvidia’s Jetson TX1 computer-on-module.

Reddit: [IDEA] Create a choose your own adventure text-based game you play from the console which teaches you Linux.

Tuesday 8th of November 2016 06:13:59 PM
  • Movement: cd, pushd, popd, symlinking (directories)

  • Inventory: files

  • Look: ls

  • Describe: cat

  • Search: find, grep, egrep

  • Inventory transport/management: cp, mv, symlinking, rm

  • Inventory protection: chmod, chown

  • Communicate: vi, emacs, cat, echo, touch, IO redirection

  • Fighting: rm, watch

  • Other ideas???

Basically, the "game" would run as a daemon or process and monitor for the accomplishment of certain milestones and present challenges to the user to overcome by using Linux commands.

Thoughts? Has this already been done?

LXer: Open is a means, not a movement

Tuesday 8th of November 2016 05:43:30 PM
In the humble beginnings of the GNU and Linux projects, open source was a primitive and narrowly-defined idea. It applied only to programming, and was a largely legal designation that sought to guarantee that source code remained available to users even as others augmented it through subsequent contributions.Now, thirty years later, "open" is sweeping the enterprise. On top of "open source," we also have "open data," "open management," "open design," "open organizations,"—and even just "open," which we often take to imply something vague about a progressive policy.read more

Reddit: Do Skylake systems work properly now? (Linux 4.8+)

Tuesday 8th of November 2016 04:17:43 PM

Back when Intel first rolled them out, I heard they had power management and general stability issues with Linux systems. I'm looking at getting an i3-6100, are there any issues I should be aware of? Thanks.
