softpedia: NASA is constantly working on projects that will eventually be useful in the outer space and on alien planets, and it looks like they are going there with the help of Linux and Ubuntu.
This November, Mozilla is up for renegotiation with Google for placement of Google search as the default search in Firefox and for the related subsidies that Google pays Mozilla, which reached almost $300 million last year. That comprised the majority of Mozilla's income. With Chrome establishing itself as a leader in the browser wars, its unclear what relationship Google will continue to pursue with Mozilla.
The Linux Foundation has created all of the content for the course, including the videos, written text, activities, and labs. It's clear to me that their content team has made an effort to space out the videos between the written material in a way that gives you a break from endless reading. Also, each video is only approximately 30 seconds to 2 minutes long. They avoid getting into the weeds too much at once, giving you chunks of knowledge, letting you test it out, then moving on to another topic. Each chapter points out that as the course progresses, you will go into further depth with each topic.
This release particularly means full exploitation of VT-d DMA and
interrupt remapping to isolate assigned PCI devices from the hypervisor
and foreign cells. Moreover, the usability of Jailhouse was greatly
improved by the introduction and continuous extension of a generator for
system configuration files. Finally, a framework for writing basic cell
applications is available now. With a few lines of C code you can set up
timer interrupts, read clocks or configure PCI devices for the use in
simple bare-metal real-time applications.
Many users might have something against the Unity desktop environment that's being used in Ubuntu, but the truth is that Unity comes with a great app launcher. Coincidentally, the same kind of launcher might work very well on phones and a similar implementation is being done for Ubuntu Touch.
Haiku, the open-source operating system that maintains compatibility with the defunct BeOS, now appears to have basic support for Haswell graphics.
A commit hit Haiku Git today entitled Add support for my Core i3 integrated graphics. The commit just adds Haswell desktop PCI IDs and that's about it, but was apparently enough to have Adrien Destugues' Core i3 Haswell system now light up with Haiku.
Reddit: Motherboard fails at "waiting for uevents to process" or "waiting for hardware to initialize". Anyway to see what's going on there?
This is an ASRock Extreme6 (open box on NewEgg.com that I'm trying to use for a server mobo with Gentoo and ZOL. Started out trying to install FreeNAS but it wouldn't boot.
Just finished a centos install from PXE boot and the install went fine. Froze after install. Yesterday I thought I was almost done setting up services and the like on Gentoo but it began to fail to boot stopping at waiting for uevents to process.
Also the reset button is less than perfectly responsive. I guess I'm just curious if there is anyway to get information about what or how it is failing rather than blindly dumbly switching it out because it "no worky".
Thanks for reading.submitted by not-hardly

LinuxJournal: Legacy support—it's a big challenge for every software developer, and although Bash and the Linux command-line world hasn't changed that much in the past few years, it's still something to consider before you ship your own software (even if it's free software).
