TuxMachines: 2016 LiFT Scholarship Winner Alexander Popov: Linux Kernel Contributor

Friday 26th of August 2016 08:42:34 PM

Since 2012, Alex has had 14 patches accepted into the mainline Linux kernel. With his employer, Positive Technologies, he has helped develop a bare metal hypervisor that they hope to open source soon. And this year he spoke at LinuxCon Japan about his work porting Kernel Address Sanitizer (KASan) to his company's bare-metal hypervisor.

He is using the free training and certification provided by the LiFT scholarship to take the Linux Kernel Internals and Development (LFD420) course from The Linux Foundation.

Reddit: Why do you hate systemd?

Friday 26th of August 2016 08:22:05 PM

I started using systemd and found it to be neat and concise. Why is there a lot of hate for it? Does anyone like it?

Reddit: SSH question

Friday 26th of August 2016 08:10:37 PM

Dear community,

i have a questions about SSH: i want to connect to my to my computer at work. To do so, i need to connect to the ssh server of our institute at first, from where i can than connect to any computer in the network.

The issue is, i would like to use some sftp or fish protocol in dolphin for easy GUI file drag-and-dropping.

Does anyone know how to accomplish that? Like can i access my work computer directly via some command i just don't know?

Reddit: Weather Report 1.12.0 Stopped Working on Mint 17.3 Mate

Weather Report 1.12.0 has worked great on all of my Linux machines until about a week ago. Thought I'd check to see if it was working on other machines before taking an action.

Reddit: Taking a Second Look at the Linux Documentation Project

Friday 26th of August 2016 07:52:57 PM

Hello internet, I am just posting a quick little idea I had that you may be interested in.

I, like many (I would hope all) of you, am a GNU/Linux user. And during my quote-unquote 'linux journey' have found myself on The Linux Documentation Project website many a time. My visit typically consists of viewing a how-to of some sort. And every time it irks me that while likely thousands of people have viewed this very same page, it is still unstyled HTML. Not to mention many of these articles have not been updated for a decade (give or take). This is what we refer to as The Linux Document Project, and yet we choose to leave it in shambles. It is seemly a dead project, yet it still receives many visits annually.

So my idea here is to take a second look at what we have, and make an attempt at reviving this project for modern day use. My idea consists of a few things in this order:

  • Fork the existing LDP project hosted on GitHub, and convert it into a simpler format (I like to use Asciidoc since it is standardized unlike its more popular Markdown cousins)
  • Add a static site generator to the project (Again, my preference is Middleman since it is extremely simple and can be extended)
  • Style the converted docs into something more pleasing to the eye (I find this especially important for new users). This will be quite simple using the static site generator mentioned above
  • Try our best to modernize these documents where needed (This will obviously be the hardest part)

All in all, I think it is an achievable goal for a small group to get this up and running through git. My only concern is overall interest in the Linux community. So here are a few questions for you readers to answer:

  • Would you be interested in using such a site?
  • Would you be willing to contribute (small or large) changes to such a site?
  • Do you have any naming suggestions for said new project? :P

Thank you for your time, and please, if you're interesting, tell your friends! And please, if you have any criticism for my plan, feel free to share that too.

P.S., I am aware of the Linux Journey, but it irks me for a few reasons, including that it is not truly open source (only the markdown is available through a repo) and it attempts to brainwash new users occasionally. For example, on its kernel installation page it uses apt-get as the way to install a kernel. If find this extremely short-sighted to cite this as the only method. While it is far from the worst resource, I do not condone Linux Journey as a suitable guide to GNU/Linux as a whole. Thus, we need an alternative.

TuxMachines: Rugged 3.5-inch SBC runs Linux or Android on i.MX6

Friday 26th of August 2016 07:08:05 PM

Logic Supply has introduced a “ICM-3011” 3.5-inch board with a dual-core i.MX6, wide-range power input, and extended temperature support.

Like the recent Pico-ITX form factor ICM-2010 SBC that’s also available in an ICS-2010 mini-PC, the ICM-3011 was built by Taipei-based Embux, and is being distributed and supported by Logic Supply. Like the ICM-2010, the $253 ICM-3011 runs on the 1GHz, dual-core DualLite version of NXP’s Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 SoC. It similarly is supported by images for Android 5.0.2 “Lollipop,” Yocto “Daisy” Linux 1.6.2, or Ubuntu Linux 12.04.

TuxMachines: An Everyday Linux User Review Of Antergos Linux

Friday 26th of August 2016 06:24:09 PM

So Antergos was recommended to me by a number of people and I have to say that the experience was decent.

It isn't difficult to install Antergos but if you have a slow internet connection then you have to be a bit patient.

Most things worked ok and hardware support was fine across the board.

The Steam thing I put down to something that the Steam developers need to resolve. Come up with a better installer.

Would Antergos make my top five now that I have tried it? I would say no to that. It isn't as good as Manjaro and that is the best distribution to pitch it against because they are both based on Arch. Manjaro has a more polished look and feel.

Nevertheless Antergos is a good distribution and well worth a try.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
