LXer: Tiny i.MX6 module has a trim little carrier too

Thursday 1st of December 2016 09:00:31 PM
E-Con’s Linux-ready “eSOMiMX6-micro” COM offers an i.MX6 SoC, optional WiFi/BT and GbE, and a 54 x 20mm footprint. Its “Meissa-I” carrier is only 80 x 40mm. In 2014, we called the E-Con Systems eSOMiMX6 computer-on-module “tiny” because it used the 70 x 45mm “?Qseven” form-factor to expand upon the i.MX6 SoC. Now E-Con has bested […]

LXer: Uncommon but useful GCC command line options - part 2

Thursday 1st of December 2016 07:51:54 PM
The gcc compiler offers a seemingly never-ending list of command line options. Of course, no body uses or has expertise on all of them, but there are a select bunch that every gcc user should - if not must - know. While some of them are commonly used, others are a bit uncommon but no less useful.

Phoronix: Apple's 2016 MacBook Pro & Linux Don't Mix

Thursday 1st of December 2016 07:08:02 PM
Last month I shared that Linux tests of the 2016 MacBook Pro would be coming and now I've finally managed to complete a few, but I highly encourage you not to get the new MacBook Pro if you plan on using anything other than macOS as the experience is a wreck. This is one laptop I don't mind seeing returned!

TuxMachines: Announcing OSS-Fuzz: Continuous Fuzzing for Open Source Software

Thursday 1st of December 2016 06:12:05 PM

We are happy to announce OSS-Fuzz, a new Beta program developed over the past years with the Core Infrastructure Initiative community. This program will provide continuous fuzzing for select core open source software.

Open source software is the backbone of the many apps, sites, services, and networked things that make up “the internet.” It is important that the open source foundation be stable, secure, and reliable, as cracks and weaknesses impact all who build on it.

Arduino-Compatible RISC-V and More

  • HiFive1 Is an Open-Source, Arduino-Compatible RISC-V Dev Kit
    Bay Area startup SiFive has announced the Freedom Everywhere 310 (FE310) system-on-chip — the industry’s first commercially-available SoC based on the free, open-source RISC-V architecture, along with the corresponding low-cost, Arduino-compatible HiFive1 development kit.
  • Samsung Defection From ARM to RISC-V.
    It was always thought that, when ARM relinquished its independence, its customers would look around for other alternatives. The nice thing about RISC-V is that it’s independent, open source and royalty-free. And RISC-V is what Samsung is reported to be using for an IoT CPU in preference to ARM.
  • Neutralize ME firmware on SandyBridge and IvyBridge platforms
    First introduced in Intel’s 965 Express Chipset Family, the Intel Management Engine (ME) is a separate computing environment physically located in the (G)MCH chip (for Core 2 family CPUs which is separate from the northbridge), or PCH chip replacing ICH(for Core i3/i5/i7 which is integrated with northbridge).

Moving From Microsoft to GNU/Linux

  • Is Linux the Right Choice for My Business?
    In these hard-economic times, cutting expense is among the keys to the success of a business. Licensing costs can be a huge drain on the wallet of any service. Of course, Microsoft Windows servers are still the standard in a lot of offices, however, there is an unsung hero out there simply waiting to be discovered by more business-owners. This article is obviously describing Linux. While it does have some appeal in both the general public and economic sectors, it is widely used for servers and still not a really popular operating system for workstations but among geeks. Why? You might ask. Microsoft has the marketplace cornered and remains the norm simply by being the standard. This is not to state that Microsoft does not produce quality software application; this post indicates absolutely nothing of the sort. Microsoft got where they are today by their sweat and devoted developers, in no way is this article lessening the quality of Microsoft or their line of products.
  • Moving with SQL Server to Linux? Move from SQL Server to MySQL as well! [Ed: SQL Server DOES NOT (!) run on Linux]
    Over the recent years, there has been a large number of individuals as well as organizations who are ditching the Windows platform for Linux platform, and this number will continue to grow as more developments in Linux are experienced. Linux has for long been the leader in Web servers as most of the web servers run on Linux, and this could be one of the reasons why the high migration is being experienced.
  • Does Linux community trust Microsoft?
    Does actually Linux community like Microsoft? Does actually Linux community trust Microsoft? I cannot answer the first question for sure, but I have a sure answer for the second question.
