Reddit: Could you suggest a German university with an expertise in Linux?

Friday 6th of April 2018 01:23:31 PM

Hello, can somebody suggest a good uni in Germany with a good expertise in Linux-related technologies (virtualization, access control, file-systems). I want to obtain a PhD degree in Germany and now looking for a place that can help me most.

P.S. I am more interested in middle-size cities because cities like Munich, Berlin, Stuttgart or Frankfurt are too expensive and too large for me.

LXer: Mainstream academia embraces open source hardware

Friday 6th of April 2018 01:03:06 PM
Twenty years ago, even staunch proponents of free and open source software like Richard Stallman questioned the social imperative for free hardware designs. Academics had barely started to consider the concept; the number of papers coming out annually on the topic were less than could be counted on someone[he]#039[/he]s fingers.

Reddit: Help me diagnose why linux on my Mac Pro 5.1 doesnt work well at all.

Friday 6th of April 2018 12:27:35 PM

Hi, I installed arch on my mac pro, and unfortunately i get horrible lockups when using linux. At first when I use gnome it stalls for 5 seconds before I can use it. After that that the whole ui gets more and more choppy. Going in activites animation results in a 5 second freeze. When playing games they very often crash. When I use a different card this does not happen. The rx 580 im using works well on arch linux on other systems, so I don't understand why it doesnt work well on my Mac Pro.

Reddit: [OT] "Jethro Meets the Pope" - Looking for info

Friday 6th of April 2018 11:39:37 AM

Posting this here because I think I will have more luck then in r/Music.

Many years ago when mp3.com had music on it, I found an album call "Jethro Meets the Pope" and I want more information on it.

I have found a link to the orginal MP3.com page, which is now dead, on this page http://blur.cx/linux/. The page references the "Director" of the documentary "The Evolution of Linux" as the artist, but it was not clear to me who that was/is.

  • Huawei Unveils Open Source DMM Project That Redesigns the Protocol Stack Container in Networking

    At the 2018 Open Networking Summit North America, Huawei introduced the new Dual Modes, Multi-Protocols, Multi-Instances (DMM) open source project—a protocol stack framework—which elevates different protocol stacks for networking application developers. DMM is a Fast Data Project and a part of the FD.io community, which is tailored for open source software and aims to provide high-performance networking solutions. Leveraging Huawei's expertise in providing cost-effective network solutions to customers, DMM will make it possible to use diverse protocol stacks for different apps, as well as simplify the process of developing a new protocol stack. This new framework will provide the enterprise industry with a more open, pluralistic, and reliable networking solution.

  • FOSSASIA experience

    I spend most of my time at the Debian booth. People swing by the booth and they talked about their experience with Debian. It was fun to meet them all. Prior to the conference I created a wiki page to coordinate Debian booth at exhibition which really helped.

    I met three Debian Developers - Chow Loong Jin (hyperair), Andrew Lee 李健秋 (ajqlee) and Héctor Orón Martínez (zumbi). Andrew Lee and zumbi also volunteered at Debian booth from time to time along with Balasankar ‘balu’ C (balasankarc). Hyperair was sitting at HackerspaceSG booth, just two booth across from us.

  • Is Python a Good Choice for Entrerprise Projects?

    If you follow me for a long time, you know I've been doing Python for more than ten years now and even wrote two books about it. So while I'm obviously biased, and before writing a reply, I would also like to take a step back and reassure you, dear reader, that I've used plenty of other programming languages those last 20 years: Perl, C, PHP, Lua, Lisp, Java, etc. I've built tiny to big projects with some of them, and I consider that Lisp is the best programming language.

TuxMachines: Submitting my first patch to the Linux kernel

Friday 6th of April 2018 10:02:15 AM

I started using Linux three years ago while attending university, and I was fascinated to discover a different desktop environment. My professor introduced me to the Ubuntu operating system, and I decided to dual-boot it along with Windows on my laptop the same day.

Within three months, I had completely abandoned Windows and shifted to Fedora after hearing about the RPM Package Manager. I also tried running Debian for stability, but in early 2017 I realized Arch Linux suits all my needs for cutting-edge packages. Now I use it along with the KDE desktop and can customize it according to my needs.

Reddit: Parrot OS

Thursday 5th of April 2018 09:51:02 PM

trying to get a parrot os live persistent usb working and running into problems.
When it boots and I select persistence, I get the following error:

"a start job is running for live-config contains the components that configure a live system during the boot process (late userspace). (X:XX / no limit)"

I can work around it by editing the boot params each time and adding "nouveau.modeset=0" but am looking for a more permanent solution instead of having to edit each and every time I boot. Any suggestions?

LXer: Getting started with Vagrant

Thursday 5th of April 2018 09:41:18 PM
If you're like me, you probably have a "sandbox" somewhere, a place where you hack on whatever projects you're working on. Over time, the sandbox will get crufty and cluttered with bits and pieces of ideas, toolchain elements, code modules you aren't using, and other stuff you don't need. When you finish something, this can complicate your deployment, because you may be unsure of the actual dependencies of your project—you've had some tool in your sandbox for so long that you forget it must be installed.read more

  • The Role of Site Reliability Engineering in Microservices
    You can always spot the hot jobs in technology: they’re the ones that didn’t exist 10 years ago. While Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) did definitely exist a decade ago, they were mostly inside Google and a handful of other Valley innovators. Today, however, the SRE role exists everywhere, from Uber to Goldman Sachs, everyone is now in the business of keeping their sites online and stable. While SREs are hotshots in the industry, their role in a microservices environment is not just a natural fit that goes hand-in-hand, like peanut butter and jelly. Instead, while SREs and microservices evolved in parallel inside the world’s software companies, the former actually makes life far more difficult for the latter.

  • ONNX: the Open Neural Network Exchange Format
    The good news is that the battleground is Free and Open. None of the big players are pushing closed-source solutions. Whether it is Keras and Tensorflow backed by Google, MXNet by Apache endorsed by Amazon, or Caffe2 or PyTorch supported by Facebook, all solutions are open-source software. Unfortunately, while these projects are open, they are not interoperable. Each framework constitutes a complete stack that until recently could not interface in any way with any other framework. A new industry-backed standard, the Open Neural Network Exchange format, could change that.
  • L.A. Lawmakers Looking To Take Legal Action Against Google For Not Solving Long-Running City Traffic Problems
    The city's government believes the traffic/mapping app has made Los Angeles' congestion worse. That the very body tasked with finding solutions to this omnipresent L.A. problem is looking to hold a private third party company responsible for its own shortcomings isn't surprising. If a third-party app can't create better traffic flow, what chance do city planners have? But beyond the buck-passing on congestion, the city may have a point about Waze making driving around Los Angeles a bit more hazardous. For several months, it's been noted that Waze has been sending drivers careening down the steepest grade in the city -- Baxter Street. Drivers seeking routes around Glendale Ave. traffic choke points have been routed to a street with a 32% grade, increasing the number of accidents located there and generally resulting in barely-controlled mayhem. When any sort of precipitation falls from the sky, the city goes insane. Drivers bypassing Glendale are now hurtling down a steep, water-covered hill, compounding the problem.
