TuxMachines: Arch Linux 2016.08.01 Is Now Available for Download, Ships with Kernel 4.6.4

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 06:52:06 AM

It's the first day of August 2016, and, for us, Arch Linux users, it means that we can get our hands on a new ISO respin that can be used to deploy the popular GNU/Linux operating system on PCs without going to all the trouble of downloading lots of updates.

Yes, you're reading it right, Arch Linux 2016.08.01 is now available for download today, August 1, 2016, distributed as a dual-arch, bootable ISO image that supports installations on 64-bit and 32-bit computers and includes all the up-to-date core components that have been pushed to the distro's main software repositories since July 1.

However, Arch Linux 2016.08.01 ships with a kernel from the Linux 4.6 series, as the distribution's maintainers have not yet moved to the latest Linux 4.7 kernel branch. Linux kernel 4.6.4 powers the Arch Linux 2016.08.01 ISO image, despite that fact that the latest release from the series is Linux kernel 4.6.5.

LXer: OpenWrt router card plugs into a mini-PCIe socket

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 05:15:22 AM
AsiaRF’s “AP620-MPE-1” is an OpenWrt WiFi-ac router based on Mediatek’s MT7620A. It plugs into a mini-PCIe slot, but is somewhat non-standard mechanically. Unlike many other OpenWrt Linux router boards running on MIPS-based WiFi chipsets, AsiaRF’s AP7620-MPE-1 board is not a standalone SBC, but an add-on card that give its host WiFi-ac routing capabilities.

LLVM Clang vs. GCC Compiler Benchmarks On FreeBSD 11.0

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. Read more

OSS Leftovers

  • First FSFE Summit Will Focus on Social Issues and Strategies
    Free Software advocates from all over Europe will be meeting in Berlin Sept. 2-4 at the first ever Free Software Foundation Europe's summit. This 2016 event, besides being long overdue, also marks 15 years since the creation of the FSFE. Throughout its history, the FSFE has had its fair share of landmark achievements. It has been instrumental in a successful antitrust-case against a big software corporation that intended to dominate the market of personal computers. It managed to keep software patents unenforceable in Europe, thereby avoiding a veritable apocalypse for European small and medium-sized tech companies. And, it worked alongside gpl-violations.org to get free licenses vindicated in German courts, setting ground-breaking precedents for the whole of the EU. One of the main missions of the Free Software community in general, and the FSFE in particular, is to put users back into the driver's seat, so that people control technology and not the other way around. This may seem like a lofty goal, but it would likely not be an exaggeration to say that the FSFE has transformed the foundations of IT in Europe and that it has had a deep impact on anybody who has used a computer, a smartphone, or a tablet in the last decade or so.

Microsoft 'Loves' (Pays) Linux

  • Microsoft at LinuxCon: Building Open Source Cred One Conference at a Time [Ed: Wim Coekaerts received just one salary from Microsoft and now he's being painted as "Microsoft", which still attacks Linux. Microsoft is just purchasing the illusion that it is loved by Linux and vice versa.]
    Coekaerts came to Microsoft after some off campus meetings at a Redmond area Starbucks with Scott Guthrie and Mike Neil, two vice presidents with the cloud and enterprise group, who convinced him that "open source is very important to Microsoft."
  • How Cloud Native Computing Is Evolving
    "Cloud native" is a relatively new term that isn't particularly well understood, but the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) aims to change that. At the Cloud Native Day here following LinuxCon, Dan Kohn, CNCF executive director (pictured), detailed what his organization does and how the cloud native approach is now evolving. The CNCF was formed in July 2015, as an effort to help unify and define the Cloud Native era. Kohn started off his keynote with a brief history of the cloud and the movement of workloads from physical servers.

  • Common hardware causes Windows 10 Anniversary Update crashes, again
    Microsoft’s Anniversary Update is causing headaches yet again, this time for owners of Kindle e-readers. Some Kindle Paperwhite and Voyager devices are causing PCs running the Anniversary update to lock up and display the dreaded blue screen of death (BSOD) whenever the e-readers are connected via USB, as first reported by The Guardian. The reason for this odd behavior is unclear, but Microsoft says it’s working on it. “We are aware of an issue with a small number of Kindle Voyager and Paperwhite e-Readers causing an unexpected behavior when plugged into Windows 10 devices after installing the Anniversary Update,” Microsoft said on its support forums. The impact on you at home: For now, there isn’t a solid workaround for anyone who’s experiencing this problem. Some users are reporting, however, that leaving the Kindle plugged in to the PC while rebooting will allow them to use the Kindle normally and transfer files. Rebooting the PC and plugging the Kindle back in again just causes another lock-up.

5 Reasons to Switch to Ubuntu Phone

You’ve had Android phones, and you’ve had iPhones. Buying a smartphone for most people is a polarized, A/B choice. And for some, the experience of choosing a new phone is becoming… jaded. You might think that Android and iOS have the mobile market sewn up, but what if I was to tell you that you don’t need to look at Windows 10 Mobile or BlackBerry as alternatives? Various others are available, but perhaps the most impressive of them all is the Ubuntu Phone, which uses the Ubuntu Touch platform, and can be found on devices such as the Meizu Pro 5.
