TuxMachines: Preparations for Debian-based Tails 3.0 and Ubuntu 17.10

Friday 21st of April 2017 10:39:52 PM
  • The Road to Tails 3.0 Anonymous Live OS Continues Based on Debian 9 "Stretch"

    Just one day after the launch of the Tails 2.12 maintenance release to the Tails 2.x stable series of the amnesic incognito live system based on Debian GNU/Linux, the development is pleased to announce the release of the fourth Beta of Tails 3.0.

    Coming exactly one month after the third Beta milestone, Tails 3.0 Beta 4 is here with all the latest and most important security updates and bug fixes ported from the repositories of the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" operating system. It also includes all the changes implemented in the Tails 2.12 release.

  • Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) Hits the Streets on October 19, with GNOME 3.26

    It's probably the last thing hardcore Ubuntu fans want to know, but it looks like the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 operating system was codenamed Artful Aardvark, and a preliminary release schedule is already online.

    It would be awkward for Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth to announce the codename of Ubuntu 17.10 considering what happened lately with the layoffs, etcetera, so some of our readers spotted the release schedule of the upcoming Ubuntu Linux release on the official wiki.

    Tor Project announced the release and immediate availability for download of the second and probably the last scheduled point release of the Tor Browser 6.5 stable series of the anonymous web browser based on Mozilla Firefox.

The Project Quantum component included in Firefox 53 is known as the Quantum Compositor; it is designed to help reduce the number of browser crashes due to graphics issues.

TuxMachines: The new replication features in MySQL 8

Friday 21st of April 2017 09:34:23 PM

This year at the Percona Live open source database conference, I will present a talk on the latest replication features in MySQL 8.0.

It was a huge amount of work to get the MySQL Group Replication plugin out with MySQL 5.7.17. Group Replication is a new plugin that gives the user some nice replication properties by resorting to group communication and state machine replication. This makes the system able to protect data against split brain situations, enables fault-tolerance and high availability, and provides coordination between servers committing transactions that change the data.

In addition to Group Replication, the team has also invested quite a bit on core replication features. Some of these features were already released, and others will be released at some point in time in a MySQL Development Milestone Release (DMR).

  • Welcome to Devuan Jessie 1.0 RC

Reddit: Win 10 Bash shell and Linux-based plugins

Friday 21st of April 2017 08:55:11 PM

Sorry if post this in a wrong place, but to be honest, windows subreddit...doesn't seem like a good place to ask technical questions

A while ago I came across an article explaining how to install linux programs using windows 10 bash shell. At first I shrugged, I'm a bit of a power user but I had no use for such feature.

Recently one crossed my mind. Would it be possible to use bash shell to install mozplugger and use it in conjunction with mpv (or any other 3rd party player really) and viewtube script with firefox developer edition?

I also read that handling(installing, updating) GPU drivers in linux is leaps and bounds better than in windows (no need to restart, no need to use DDU). Would it be possible to download thise drivers via bash shell and use in windows?

I like tinkering with stuff but I'm still a greenhorn for the most part, pls no bully

LinuxInsider: A Window Into the Linux Desktop

Friday 21st of April 2017 08:37:11 PM
"What can it do that Windows can't?" That is the first question many people ask when considering Linux for their desktop. While the open source philosophy that underpins Linux is a good enough draw for some, others want to know just how different its look, feel and functionality can get. To a degree, that depends on whether you choose a desktop environment or a window manager. If you want a desktop experience that is lightning fast and uncompromisingly efficient, foregoing the classic desktop environment for a window manager might be for you.
