LXer: How the open source model will soar above the rest

Monday 10th of April 2017 07:50:18 PM
Defining a project is more than just discussing the results of the deliverable. For a project manager, this definition is about learning how to balance a series of interrelated elements. When it comes to the process of creation, the project manager has to manage the dependencies and the project's critical chain. The project manager also has to communicate effectively with the various stakeholders' personalities and the dynamic differences between Waterfall and Agile development methods.read more

Reddit: Any ideas for simple, quick commands to mess with a fellow classmates Linux VM? OpenSuse. Fun class project.

Monday 10th of April 2017 07:26:48 PM

Basically what the title says. I plan on removing directories/files or merging them, renaming files, deleting file contents, and changing user privileges to start. Any other fun ideas I can try? Nothing too long, it's a "live response" hack so I cant spend a long time trying to accomplish one thing, I just need to cause chaos and make it difficult for them to fix. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!

Firewalls are disabled and SSH is enabled on the machine. The opponents have to define their firewalls via iptables and monitor and log any changes to the system, then fix them.

TuxMachines: 3 Linux Foundation networking projects that your business needs to know

Monday 10th of April 2017 06:54:10 PM

It's difficult to achieve critical mass for an open source project—even the largest enterprise IT vendors have challenges. It requires product management skills when there's no actual product. In addition to traditional product management expertise, open source projects must have an active community.

I'm a firm believer that enterprise IT shops will soon find themselves in a position where open source becomes a necessity for delivering IT infrastructure. Highly publicized companies like Capital One, Comcast, and Walmart are all increasingly embracing open source.

TuxMachines: Tiny Core 8.0: A complete desktop Linux distro in 16MB

Monday 10th of April 2017 05:53:20 PM

Looking for a light-weight, but capable operating system? It doesn’t get much lighter than Tiny Core Linux.

The disc image for the most basic version of this operating system is just 16MB, and it boots on most computers in a matter of seconds. But once it’s up and running, you can install all sorts of desktop applications including the Firefox web browser, GIMP image editor, of LibreOffice suite of office applications.

Reddit: Ubuntu Library Issue [HELP]

Monday 10th of April 2017 05:53:05 PM

I'm not sure if this is the right location but I am in desperate need of help. I am an electrical engineering student working on my senior design project which is a UAV that is Linux based using a Jetson TX1. Anyways, I am trying to test 2 sensors, a Lidar Lite v3, and a dfrobot Microwave Sensor. I need to grab useful data from these sensors but I do not know how to do so on Ubuntu as I've never used it before. I installed i2c-tools to detect that the sensor is there but I am having trouble understanding how to run a script to collect data. I mostly need the microwave sensor info as it has much less documentation. Any help is appreciated.

Distributions News: Ubuntu, Manjaro, and Lakka

  • Ubuntu founder retakes the CEO throne, many employees gone
    Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonincal has once again returned to his positition of CEO, as Jane Silber, the previous CEO now heads to the Board of Directors; and big changes happen to the staff lineup as a result. In a blog bost by Sibler, she says, “I originally agreed to be CEO for 5 years and we’ve extended my tenure as CEO by a couple of years already. We’ve been preparing for a transition for some time by strengthening the executive leadership team and maturing every aspect of the company, and earlier this year Mark and I decided that now is the time to effect this transition.”

  • Make your own NES Classic Edition with Lakka 2.0 LibreELEC Linux distro and Raspberry Pi
    The NES Classic Edition is a very fun nostalgia-based gaming console. As someone who grew up with Nintendo, I knew I wanted the mini system as soon as it was announced. A family member was able to score me one on launch day, and I've been very happy with it. Unfortunately, other people have not been so lucky. Supply was very limited and it has since been discontinued. If you do not already have it, you are sort of out of luck without paying high prices on eBay or Craigslist. If you are only looking to replay the NES games of your youth, and you are OK with doing it in an unofficial way, emulation is another route. In fact, if you'd rather not play these games on your PC, you can instead use a Linux-based operating system and a Raspberry Pi (or other devices) hooked to a television. One such distro is Lakka, which just reached version 2.0. It is arguably better than an NES Classic Edition as it can also play games from other systems, such as SNES, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, PlayStation 1, and many more.

Linux Mint's Plans

  • Some Of The Features Coming To Linux Mint's Cinnamon 3.4 Desktop
    In the latest monthly progress report on Linux Mint, some of the upcoming changes for the GNOME3-forked Cinnamon Desktop Environment were shared.
  • Monthly News – April 2017
    Many thanks to all the people who donated to us and who help to fund our project. Donations are down to about 60% of what they were last year, but they’re still quite high. In the first trimesters of 2015, 2016 and 2017 we respectively received $23k, $40k and $25k. Our development team has gotten bigger and our budget is being extended to include some administrators and designers. Other figures and metrics indicate we’re growing so this probably just reflects an exceptional year for donations in 2016.
  • Linux Mint Is Adopting LightDM as its Login Manager
    Linux Mint is adopting the LightDM display manager to handle and authenticate user sessions. Revealing plans in its latest monthly update, Mint says it will formally drop the MDM Display Manager (MDM) in favour of LightDM with Mint 18.2, release date for which is as-yet unknown. The popular Ubuntu-based Linux distribution mooted a possible switch earlier this year, noting that it had a key feature MDM lacks (guest sessions), and has become something of a standard across distributions.
  • Linux Mint 13 support ends, LMDE to get MATE 1.18 soon, big changes heading to Cinnamon
    The news from the Linux Mint team was quite interesting this week. First up, Linux Mint 13 has officially hit EOL (end of life), so you really do need to upgrade. LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is set to get the MATE desktop version 1.18 "this week" and they have ported mintMenu over to GTK3, since the rest of MATE is now using GTK3 too it makes sense.
