Today, October 3, 2016, Git developer Junio C Hamano proudly announced the release and immediate availability of the first maintenance update to the latest stable Git 2.10 series.
The first days of October already brought many exciting new technologies for GNU/Linux users, and today we would like to tell you about the recent release of the FFmpeg 3.1.4 "Laplace" open-source and cross-platform multimedia framework.
Open source software offers benefits like high quality and faster application development, but some businesses have concerns about support and security.
I'm shopping for a new laptop and am pulling my hair out trying to parse all the reviews that say things like "it crashes all the time." Does one just assume, in such cases, that crashing is a Windows issue and hope for the best once the hardware has been linuxized (assuming the hardware is known to be compatible)?submitted by /u/whenwasyesterday
Was looking at some Linux stuff, and couldn't figure out what theme they were using. Help me out please :) http://www.tecmint.com/progress-monitor-check-progress-of-linux-commands/submitted by /u/marioo1182
This just seems non-nonsensical to me? Dont get me wrong, I like systemd at this point and I think it brings a lot of benefits and I have my own reservations/opinions on what its doing annoyingly wrong but they are mostly benign issues. This kind of goes hand-in-hand with the hangup created from the assert() call we saw recently on here
That being said, the only way to reboot in this case is with sysrq-trigger? I was in single user mode and was mounted r/w to do some fixing and my only way to reboot at this point is to hit sysrq-trigger?
I hope its relatively straight forward and im simply missing something obvious or a document somewhere, but this seems off to me. The init daemon shouldnt stop me from rebooting if its down or unavailable in some capacity and shouldnt force me to sysrq-trigger my systemsubmitted by /u/ckozler
- Security updates for Monday
Impossible is impossible!
Sometimes when you plan for a security event, it would be expected that the thing you're doing will be making some outcome (something bad probably) impossible. The goal of the security group is to keep the bad guys out, or keep the data in, or keep the servers patched, or find all the security bugs in the code. One way to look at this is security is often in the business of preventing things from happening, such as making data exfiltration impossible. I'm here to tell you it's impossible to make something impossible.
As you think about that statement for a bit, let me explain what's happening here, and how we're going to tie this back to security, business needs, and some common sense. We've all heard of the 80/20 rule, one of the forms is that the last 20% of the features are 80% of the cost. It's a bit more nuanced than that if you really think about it. If your goal is impossible it would be more accurate to say 1% of the features are 2000% of the cost. What's really being described here is a curve that looks like this
What is the spc_t container type, and why didn't we just run as unconfined_t?
If you are on an SELinux system, and run docker with SELinux separation turned off, the containers will run with the spc_t type.
The importance of paying attention in building community trust
Trust is important in any kind of interpersonal relationship. It's inevitable that there will be cases where something you do will irritate or upset others, even if only to a small degree. Handling small cases well helps build trust that you will do the right thing in more significant cases, whereas ignoring things that seem fairly insignificant (or saying that you'll do something about them and then failing to do so) suggests that you'll also fail when there's a major problem. Getting the small details right is a major part of creating the impression that you'll deal with significant challenges in a responsible and considerate way.
This isn't limited to individual relationships. Something that distinguishes good customer service from bad customer service is getting the details right. There are many industries where significant failures happen infrequently, but minor ones happen a lot. Would you prefer to give your business to a company that handles those small details well (even if they're not overly annoying) or one that just tells you to deal with them?

I have just purchased a notebook running Linux and I'm looking to change it to windows. I have downloaded the ISO file but I'm struggling to install a program to mount the ISO onto a USB. Would it be possible for me to mount the ISO on the USB on another windows computer the use it on the Linux? Or would it have to be done on Linux for it to be able to be read? Any help would be greatly appreciatedsubmitted by /u/Archiethere

Hi friends, I have a question. I am doing my masters of Electrical Engineering. I have no programming skill. I came to know about Linux certification course, and I thought I should learn it. But when I browsed the website of linux foundation, it showed me two training program options. One was System admin while the other was system engineer. So if I want to learn linux from scratch, which one should I start with ? Which one is better in terms of job pay scale ? please help me. thanks a lot.submitted by /u/rising_batman
