LXer: Hackathons bring open source innovation to humanitarian aid

Friday 3rd of June 2016 06:07:29 PM
Humanitarian and development aid is about helping people suffering from both short-term and long-term problems. These problems can be natural (e.g., droughts, floods, and earthquakes) as well as man-made (e.g., poverty, war, and oppression). A recent example of a humanitarian crisis is the refugee situation in Europe, and the disorder in Syria and its surrounding region.read more

Reddit: Corel Linux OS Deluxe - Getting it to run in a VM

Friday 3rd of June 2016 05:40:24 PM

I found an old set of Corel Linux CD's lying around, and before they go to the recycle bin I would like to setup a VM. I have tried VMWare Player (setup locks up) Oracle Virtual Box (setup reboots and then no boot device found).

Has anyone ever gotten this to work?

Reddit: Question about Linux...

Friday 3rd of June 2016 05:25:54 PM

Sorry I am not a Linux user, but I do have a question about it. What are the minimum specs for a computer to run a Linux Distro that can be my media PC and play up to SBS 3D 1080p movies with 7.1 audio?

I have a couple older smaller machines and Windows can't quite do it and my Mac Mini can't pull it off so I am just hoping I can re-purpose one of my older units for this purpose.

Thanks

Reddit: Korora (Fedora remix for beginners and lazy pros) readying F24-based release

Friday 3rd of June 2016 04:19:45 PM

Chris Smart wrote: “Work has begun on Korora 24. I have some alpha images, but it will be a few weeks before a beta is ready for release, I expect.

I should add that we're planning to drop 32bit ISO images for the Korora 24 release, but still provide 32 bit repositories for upgrades. Only about 20% of our downloads are for 32 bit images, and it has been getting less and less. This should free us up a bit.”

  • COMs run Android on quad- or octa-core Samsung SoCs
    Boardcon announced a pair of 70 x 58mm COMs that run Android on Samsung’s quad-core, Cortex-A9 S5P4418 and octa-core, Cortex-A53 S5P6818 SoCs. The MINI4418 and MINI6818 computer-on-modules are “compatible” with each other, as well as with Boardcon’s earlier MINI3288, which is based on the quad-core, Cortex-A17 Rockchip RK3288. The new COMs instead tap two Samsung SoCs: the quad-core, Cortex-A9 S5P4418 for the MINI4418, and the octa-core, Cortex-A53 S5P6818 for the MINI6818. The MINI6818 supports applications such as “sensitive home automation, security, and industrial applications,” whereas the MINI4418 supports “MID, multimedia advertising, intelligent control terminals, and smart instrumentation,” says Boardcon.
  • Expansive Mini-ITX board runs Linux on Skylake
    Axiomtek’s “MANO0500” Mini-ITX board supports 6th Gen Intel Core, Pentium, and Celeron CPUs, and offers three SATA, two GbE, and mini-PCIe with SIM. Mini-ITX boards are typically among the first form-factors to support new Intel Core chips along with COM Express modules. We’re not sure why Axiomtek, one of the more prolific of embedded vendors, waited so long to launch its first 6th Generation Intel Core (“Skylake”) based Mini-ITX board, but it’s a welcome edition. Back in April, the company announced a Skylake-based PICO500 SBC using the smaller Pico-ITX form factor.
