TuxMachines: Learning More About Explicit Fencing & Android's Sync Framework

Sunday 28th of August 2016 10:11:35 AM

With the sync validation framework leaving the staging area in Linux 4.9 and other work going on around the Android sync framework and explicit fencing, this functionality is becoming a reality that ultimately benefits the Linux desktop.

Collabora developer Gustavo Padovan presented at this week's LinuxCon 2016 conference about explicit fencing support in the mainline kernel with a "new era of graphics."

TuxMachines: Leftovers: Software Development

Sunday 28th of August 2016 08:53:44 AM
  • fakecloud
  • A new version of pristine-tar
  • Getting RSS feeds for news websites that don’t provide them

    On the technical side, this seems to be one of the most stable pieces of software I ever wrote. It never crashed or otherwise failed since I started running it, and fortunately I also didn’t have to update the HTML parsing code yet because of website changes.

    It’s written in Haskell, using the Scotty web framework, Cereal serialization library for storing the history of the past articles, http-conduit for fetching the websites, and html-conduit for parsing the HTML. Overall a very pleasant experience, thanks to the language being very convenient to write and preventing most silly mistakes at compile-time, and the high quality of the libraries.

  • Quick Highlight

    Martin Blanchard put together a new “quick highlight” plugin for Builder this last week. It was a great example of how to submit a new feature, so I just wanted to highlight it here. Post to bugzilla, attach a patch, and we will review quickly and help with any additional integration that might be necessary.

Reddit: Running a desktop purely with QT?

Sunday 28th of August 2016 03:27:09 AM

Has anyone done this? I was just wondering since I decided to move some of my apps to QT based ones (plus try coding a text editor using QT) and also tried LXQT. The QT stuff actually looks nicer, and the font rendering is a hell of a lot crisper (perhaps I haven't set up gtk properly?)

I'm aware that more than a few taken-for-granted apps like firefox use GTK.

LXer: ConnochaetOS 14.2 Screenshot Tour

Sunday 28th of August 2016 02:44:28 AM
I am proudly announcing ConnochaetOS 14.2, based on Slackware and Salix 14.2. As always it contains only free/libre software as defined by the Free Software Foundation (FSF).

ConnochaetOS contains: The de-blobbed Kernel Linux 4.4.19, IceWM 1.3.12, Iceweasel 45.3.0. In our slack-n-free repo we provide the current versions of Iceape and Icedove, the brand-new qt5-webengine based web browsers Qupzilla and Otter-browser and LibreOffice 5.1.4 as provided by Eric 'Alien' Hameleers.

Reddit: Why is slackware (live CD) so large?

Sunday 28th of August 2016 02:04:18 AM

When comparing Slackwares installer image to ubuntu, fedora, mint, or even manjaro, it seems as if Slackware beats all of them in size. All except Slackware read as under 2GBs while Slackware is sitting at 2.6 GBs. This is especially strange considering that Slackware seems to be a minimal live CD. I searched this question on google and got no results. Could someone clear this up?


EDIT: /u/becauseicantresist corrected me, Slackware does not come with an official live CD. Liveslak is an actual live CD for Slackware.

Reddit: Run Linux and programs from an USB

Sunday 28th of August 2016 12:47:03 AM

Hey, quick question. I managed to install Ubuntu on my USB stick and boot it on an clean laptop. After installing certain programs, I realised that they are not there after restart my computer. So my question is, is there a possibility to install my programs on the USB and keep them there when I boot the OS from different computers?


If yes, any suggestions on where to find more information?

Not sure if this is possible but I have copied some files from gdfuse onto a Ubuntu server and I have mislabeled the end folder name and it has created it as either a file or im not sure on what it would be. Is there a way to chmod it to a directory or change it another way to act as a directory

University fuels NextCloud's improved monitoring

Encouraged by a potential customer - a large, German university - the German start-up company NextCloud has improved the resource monitoring capabilities of its eponymous cloud services solution, which it makes available as open source software. The improved monitoring should help users scale their implementation, decide how to balance work loads and alerting them to potential capacity issues. NextCloud’s monitoring capabilities can easily be combined with OpenNMS, an open source network monitoring and management solution. Read more

Linux Kernel Developers on 25 Years of Linux

One of the key accomplishments of Linux over the past 25 years has been the “professionalization” of open source. What started as a small passion project for creator Linus Torvalds in 1991, now runs most of modern society -- creating billions of dollars in economic value and bringing companies from diverse industries across the world to work on the technology together. Hundreds of companies employ thousands of developers to contribute code to the Linux kernel. It’s a common codebase that they have built diverse products and businesses on and that they therefore have a vested interest in maintaining and improving over the long term. The legacy of Linux, in other words, is a whole new way of doing business that’s based on collaboration, said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation said this week in his keynote at LinuxCon in Toronto.
