With the Fedora 21 Alpha freeze looming in the rear view mirror, although the object wasn’t as close as it would appear, I thought it was high time that I gave a brief overview of the state of ARM aarch64 in Fedora. Some might assume the silence means not a lot has been happening but this is extremely far from the truth!
Until now, as with most new versions of software, new code for a new version of OpenSUSE had been bottled up for group testing at a beta or milestone stage.
In the OpenSUSE world, this milestone stage had taken place in something called the "Factory".
The milestone approach is now being abandoned.
The goal is to get more users and contributors involved in development and testing phase, speeding up fixes and improving quality.
Ugoos is prepping an Android 4.4 “S85″ media player dongle with a quad-core Amlogic S805 Cortex-A5 SoC clocked to 1.5GHz, and a quad-core Mali-450 GPU.
Ugoos has spun a variety of Android media player boxes and dongles over the last few years, including a UT3 box, featuring Rockchip’s quad-core, Cortex-A17 RK3288 system-on-chip with a 16-core Mali-T760 GPU, now selling for $130. Before that was the Ugoos UT2, with the quad-core, Cortex-A9 RK3188 SoC clocked to 1.6GHz, with a Mali-400 GPU. Last year, the Chinese company introduced a dongle-style UM2 stick, running on the same RK3188 and Mali-400 GPU.
The Samsung supported Flash-Friendly File-System (F2FS) will sport some new functionality with the Linux 3.17 kernel release.
The user-facing work found with the F2FS file-system for Linux 3.17 includes the major following work:
- A nobarrier mount option has been added to F2FS, similar to other file-systems. With this option the file-system keeps the I/O ordering but ignores information about cache flushes inside the storages.
The Intel Graphics Installer for Linux, a tool that allows users to easily install the latest graphics and video drivers for their Intel graphics hardware, is now at version 1.0.6 and is ready for download.
I am looking for a lyrics pop up window that will hopefully render me most the lyrcs of my songs I listen to. I use Clementine but Was wondering if there is a different app out there that will show the lyrics, i would rather find a totally independent one cause I switch distros every once in a while. The main thing I would want it to do it popup on the screen and stay on top just to see the lyrics instead of me searching for them all the time. Please let me know if there is something I am unaware of, thanks!submitted by n0hc
This seems like such a simple question, but I've used windows all my life, and am a pretty proficient user, I've really never needed to ask for help or how to do something, but with Linux I'm really flying blind and I'm not really sure where to turn. Are there any subreddits/sites that are good for extremely new Linux user's questions?submitted by echocage

eWEEK: Docker sells its platform-as-a-service business to cloudControl to ensure that "dotCloud PaaS customers have a good home with an experienced PaaS provider."
I've got it basically working, but I can't get it to read username/password from my l2tp-secrets file properly. I have to hardcode name/password in the xl2tpd.options file. I also don't have routing setup properly. My traffic doesn't flow through the VPN tunnel by default. If you have something working, would you mind sharing your config files so I can compare against them?submitted by paladine01
One thing that MATE has in common with both Enlightenment and Awesome is the general peppiness. Everything in MATE is just plain snappy and light on resource usage. And you could say that memory/CPU usage isn't a huge deal with modern hardware. But, in my testing on this i5 with 8 gigs of RAM, MATE is so much more responsive than GNOME Shell, KDE or Unity that it's just plain silly.
