LXer: OPEN SOURCE WON. SO, NOW WHAT?

Sunday 8th of April 2018 06:42:31 PM
The government is now a little more open. This week, the White House released its first official federal source code policy, detailing a pilot program that requires government agencies to release 20 percent of any new code they commission as open source software, meaning the code will be available for anyone to examine, modify, and reuse in their own projects.

Phoronix: Intel Optane 800p SSD 118GB

Sunday 8th of April 2018 06:40:00 PM
Last month Intel launched the Optane SSD 800P series as a step below the ultra-fast Optane 900P solid-state drives but still a big step ahead of other SSD options like the Intel 760p series. Here are our first Linux performance benchmarks of the Optane 800p series with testing the 118GB SSDPEK1W120GA 800p SSD on Ubuntu.

Reddit: DBAN gives invalid partition table error at boot

Sunday 8th of April 2018 06:25:52 PM

I used unetbootin to make the USB bootable with DBAN. Then I renamed the syslinux.cfg to something else and isolinux.cgf to syslinux.cfg. Now when I boot I get an invalid partition table error.

I've seen this method in a blog post. Is there any other way to make DBAN work? It can't be that hard right?

LXer: Making cloud-native computing universal and sustainable

Sunday 8th of April 2018 04:48:09 PM
I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to build an open source foundation from scratch the last couple of years by serving as the founding executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Since late 2015, the foundation has grown to comprise more than 200 members worldwide and 18 innovative cloud-native projects.

Reddit: Small linux tablets?

Sunday 8th of April 2018 02:19:26 PM

Do such things exist? Something small enough to fit in a purse or pocket? 4.5" to 9" ?

I know Ubuntu had some plans, but they were ultimately scuttled. Android is a basically a gaping security hole, and both app market places (iOS and Android) are predicated on owning and selling your data. This wouldn't be so bad if you controlled the OS. You could block parts of the apps comms, or even disable microphones or cameras at a hardware level.

Reddit: Floating DE that handles workspaces like i3-wm does

Sunday 8th of April 2018 02:04:16 PM

Does anyone know of a DE that handles workspaces like i3-wm does?

i3-wm handles workspaces independendly of monitors, so on monitor 1 you can go to workspace 5, and on monitor 2 you can go to workspace 10. Every other DE i've tried changes workspaces on both monitors.

LinuxInsider: Valve Soothes SteamOS Fans After Yanking Steam Machines

Sunday 8th of April 2018 12:00:00 PM
Valve has been working to reassure members of its community that it has not yet thrown in the towel on SteamOS and Linux gaming systems that have been hampered over the years due to performance issues, soaring sales on mainstream rival platforms, and generally weak demand. Valve recently withdrew SteamOS machines from its direct online sales portal, saying it was working to reconfigure the platform. That move did not go unnoticed by the Steam for Linux community, which prompted developer Pierre-Loup Griffais to offer reassurances.

University students create award-winning open source projects

In my short time working for Clarkson University, I've realized what a huge impact this small university is making on the open source world. Our 4,300 student-strong science and technology-focused institution, located just south of the Canadian border in Potsdam, New York, hosts the Clarkson Open Source Institute (COSI), dedicated to promoting open source software and providing equipment and support for student projects. While many universities offer opportunities for students to get involved in open source projects, it's rare to have an entire institute dedicated to promoting open source development. COSI is part of Clarkson's Applied Computer Science Labs within the computer science department. It, along with the Internet Teaching Lab and the Virtual Reality Lab, is run by students (supported by faculty advisers), allowing them to gain experience in managing both facilities and projects while still undergraduates.

Linux 4.17-rc2

So rc2 is out, and things look fairly normal. The diff looks a bit unusual, with the tools subdirectory dominating, with 30%+ of the whole diff. Mostly perf and test scripts. But if you ignore that, the rest looks fairly usual. Arch updates (s390 and x86 dominate) and drivers (networking, gpu, HID, mmc, misc) are the bulk of it, with misc other changes all over (filesystems, core kernel, networking, docs). We've still got some known fallout from the merge window, but it shouldn't affect most normal configurations, so go out and test. Linus Read more Also: Upstream Linux support for new NXP i.MX8
