LXer: Creating Virtual Disks Using Linux Command Line

Saturday 7th of April 2018 06:29:33 AM
Linux is indeed a great system with excellent tools at our disposal. There are lots of things that can be achieved using the terminal. One such activity is creating virtual hard drives. Your Linux system should already have the tools required to do this without the need for virtual machine software.

Reddit: NPM should not force us to install as root

Saturday 7th of April 2018 06:03:48 AM

Hey,

Packages installed through NPM are not that well audited as distro packages are!

With that in mind, why ain't it oriented to install those packages as user?

To install packages as user will demand hackish solutions.

Gem, Pip, and Cargo are great implementations in that regard.

Sorry, if my rudeness does offends any NPM developers!

TuxMachines: Red Hat News and Development

Saturday 7th of April 2018 03:17:47 AM
  • OpenShift Commons Briefing: Introduction to Quay with Joey Schorr (Red Hat)

    In this briefing, Red Hat’s Joey Schorr gave a in-depth introduction on and demonstration of Quay, CoreOs’ Application Registry for Kubernetes with OpenShift. Quay is an container registry for building, storing, and distributing your private containers to your servers.

  • Latest CRIU for CentOS COPR

    The version of CRIU which is included with CentOS is updated with every minor CentOS release (at least at the time of writing this) since 7.2, but once the minor CentOS release is available CRIU is not updated anymore until the next minor release. To make it easier to use the latest version of CRIU on CentOS I am now also rebuilding the latest version in COPR for CentOS: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/adrian/criu-el7/.

  • Kerberos Sidecar Container

    The challenge facing this team was how best to implement the Kerberos client for processes running in containers, and how to ensure that the authentication remained valid for long running processes.

    For those not familiar with Kerberos, it is essentially a protocol for authentication, commonly used to allow users or systems to connect to other systems. Tickets are used to authenticate, avoiding the storing, or sending, of passwords, and it is based on symmetric key cryptography.

  • Red Hat Summit 2018: Develop Secure Apps and Services

    Red Hat Summit 2018 will focus on modern application development. A critical part of modern application development is of course securing your applications and services. Things were challenging when you only needed to secure a single monolithic application. In a modern application landscape, you’re probably looking at building microservices and possibly exposing application services and APIs outside the boundaries of your enterprise. In order to deploy cloud-native applications and microservices you must be able to secure them. You might be faced with the challenge of securing both applications and back-end services accessed by mobile devices while using third party identity providers like social networks. Fortunately, Red Hat Summit 2018 has a number of developer-oriented sessions where you can learn how to secure your applications and services, integrate single-sign on, and manage your APIs. Session highlights include:

  • Red Hat scripting languages for beta: adds Ruby 2.5, Perl 5.26; updates PHP 7.1.8

    Twice a year, Red Hat distributes new versions of compiler toolsets, scripting languages, open source databases, and/or web tools, etc. so that application developers will have access to the latest, stable versions. These Red Hat supported offerings are packaged as Red Hat Software Collections (scripting languages, open source databases, web tools, etc.), Red Hat Developer Toolset (GCC), and the recently added compiler toolsets Clang/LLVM, Go, and Rust. All are yum installable, and are included in most Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions and all Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Subscriptions. Most Red Hat Software Collections and Red Hat Developer Toolset components are also available as Linux container images for hybrid cloud development across Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, etc.

  • Red Hat adds/updates web tools for beta: HAProxy 1.8, Varnish 5.0, Apache httpd 2.4

  • OpenShift Commons Briefing: CyberArk Conjur Secrets Management on OpenShift

    In this briefing, Naama Schwartzblat and Kumbirai Tanekha (CyberArk) discuss and demo how to securely inject secrets into your applications and manage machine identities with CyberArk Conjur. Kumbirai Tanekha and Naama Schwartzblat,the lead developers on Conjur both of whom worked directly on the Conjur-OpenShift integration. They demonstrated how secrets can be managed and delivered securely to applications running in OpenShift without developer impedance, and how OpenShift security policy for secrets and machine identity can be managed as code.

TuxMachines: Graphics: The Forge, DXVK, Vulkan, OpenTracing

Saturday 7th of April 2018 02:59:32 AM
  • "The Forge" Rendering Framework Adds Linux/Vulkan Support

    The Forge, a cross-platform rendering framework developed by Confetti, a graphics research think-tank and consulting company, has rolled out Linux and Vulkan support.

    The Forge rendering framework supports Windows 10 with DirectX 12 and Vulkan, as well as the new DirectX Ray-Tracing API. There is also Metal 2 support on iOS/macOS, preliminary Android Vulkan support, PS4 and Xbox One console support, and now PC Linux support in the form of Vulkan graphics officially supported on Ubuntu.

  • DXVK, the Vulkan compatibility layer for Direct3D 11 and Wine has a fresh release reducing CPU overhead

    Since there's a lot of excitement around DXVK we've been following it closely and a fresh release made it out last night.

    For those who don't remember it, DXVK is the compatibility layer for running Direct3D 11 games in Wine using Vulkan. It's a very promising project, with a lot of people having fun with it already on Linux.

  • Vulkan 1.1.72 Released With Three New Extensions

    Vulkan 1.1.72 is now available, which for simple terms is really "Vulkan 1.1.2" except for the patch number having not been reset when Vulkan 1.1 was launched last month.

    Vulkan 1.1.72 has several documentation fixes and other corrections/clarifications. But of course what has most of our interest are three new extensions. The new extensions are VK_AMD_shader_core_properties, VK_NV_shader_subgroup_partitioned, and VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing.

  • Efforts to standardize tracing through OpenTracing

    Industry efforts toward distributed tracing have been evolving for decades, and one of the latest initiatives in this arena is OpenTracing, an open distributed standard for apps and OSS packages. APMs like Lightstep and Datadog are eagerly pushing forward the emerging specification, as are customer organizations like HomeAway, PayPal and Pinterest, while some other industry leaders – including Dynatrace, NewRelic, and App Dynamics – are holding back from full support. Still, contributors to the open-source spec are forging ahead with more and more integrations, and considerable conference activities are in store for later this year.

Nginx is a great alternative to apache & has been gaining popularity in recent times. Though Nginx has been known to being a web server with less modules/add-ons & more complex settings than apache but if you are hosting a single website that you want to work at fast speed, than Nginx is right fit for you.

Reddit: Having Issues with Skype

Friday 6th of April 2018 10:01:43 PM

I’m running a KDE Mint set-up on my home PC, however I’ve been having issues with Skype on it. The sound quality is very bad and sounds almost robotic. Is there anyway to improve this? My current solution is dual booting into Windows instead but I’m really not a fan of it. Are there any alternatives to Skype in the chance that there is no way to fix it? I use Skype everyday to talk to my long distance family so this is a crucial point for my day to day use.

How to Upgrade from Ubuntu 17.10 or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Before we go through the upgrade process in more detail, there are a few things you should know. First and foremost, make sure you have a recent backup of your most important files on an external drive, do it now! Second of all, if you're upgrading from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, you'll have to deal with some major desktop changes if you use Unity. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) uses the Unity desktop environment by default, but Ubuntu 18.04 LTS uses the GNOME desktop environment with a highly customized interface to make it look like Unity, which Canonical said it won't be removed during the upgrade process and will remain available as an alternative if you still want to use it.
