Our Oz readers attending the forthcoming linux.conf.au 2016 shindig in Geelong might like to catch Andrew Tridgell's presentation on "Helicopters and Rocket-Planes", which will include a look at our Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) Vulture 2 spaceplane.
As regular readers know, Linux guru Tridge has been working on the custom ArduPilot parameters for the vehicle's Pixhawk autopilot, seen below with our Raspberry Pi rig during an avionics rejig in 2014.
Hi all. Apologies if this isn't a good sub to ask this in but I didn't see a better one in the sidebar.
I'm looking to get the smallest, thinnest, lightest device (not necessarily a regular laptop) with a keyboard that I can run Linux on and expect decent hardware support. Initially I'd like to put Kali on it and use it for some pentesting work, but would probably go to another distro later on. I don't need much in terms of specs (CPU, graphics, RAM, battery, etc.) as this would be a secondary device to my primary laptop.
Any suggestions? Should I consider ARM devices in addition to x86?
Thanks.submitted by timewast3r

I am currently trying to use a pi (raspbian jessie) to communicate to my computer across the LAN. I have tried using a ssh tunnel (ssh -t pi@ip -L 1234:localIPofMyComputer:5902) I have tried using this tunnel for vnc, ssh and ftp but I have had no luck would there be a better way to do this at all? When connecting I use localhost:1234. Also when trying vnc it found the computer but hung on negotiating connection then looses connection.submitted by callum-99

High Performance computing and parallel computing amateur linux test lab
I dabble in trying to build high performance applications, and parallel computing stuff. I don't do a good job at it, but I would like more practice. I tried to conceive of the type of hardware I would like for my continued practice. These are their stories:
I know from bitcoin mining that some instruction sets are better at somethings, so I'm pretty sure I want two servers, with dual graphics cards. One nvidia, and one ATI (or maybe I'm just an ATI guy but nvidia is kind of sort of blowing them out of the water). I also know I'm probably going to want two Parallella's.
Ocean is an amazing Linux based battery-powered, pocket sized wireless server
Ocean, a mobile server launched by Redwood-based hardware repair company iCracked, can run all Linux-based operating systems that is built on top of the Linux kernel. It can easily fit into your pocket but is capable of being a full-blown battery powered wireless web server.
