liquidat: Ansible now fits right in between these two classes of tools: it does provide the possibility to serve recipes from a central server, but does not require the clients to run any other agent but ssh.
This thing here. It runs a modified OpenWRT by default. Doing research, the processor on the board is an Atheros AR9331, which is a 400MHz MIPS32 24k processor. I'm here to report on research and possibly collect tips and help from any of you guys for the completion of the master plan.
Master plan itself: Create a working MIPS workstation from an Arduino Yún, running Debian.
Secondary objective: Get an onboard Arduino IDE running to program the microcontroller from within Debian.
USB hubs will be used.
USB monitor will be involved (Or a USB>VGA converter, such as this one.)
I will have a keyboard/mouse attached, also USB.
USB DVD drive will be used.
Since the Yún has a MicroSD slot, I will buy an 8 or 16GB MicroSD card to install Debian onto.
I am looking for a virtual machine program capable of emulating the exact processor I need (MIPS32 24k 400MHz), with the Yún's 64 megabytes of RAM.
Evolve OS is a new upcoming Linux distribution based on openSUSE and sporting a new desktop environment based on the Gnome 3 stack. You may immediately be thinking, is this yet another 'Ubuntu Killer' promising a lot and ultimately delivering little? But Evolve OS has a different philosophy and some interesting ideas. Read on to find out more.
There are a lot of digital TV channels that rely on Microsoft’s silverlight. For linux there was moonlight to replace silverlight, but it was only compatible with silverlight up to version 4. Unfortunately most digital TV services require version 5 or higher. Pipelight delivers the solution.
Pipelight is a special kind of browser plugin, that acts as a wrapper for Windows plugins like Silverlight, Flash, … and allows you to use them in native Linux browsers. Pipelight installation instructions for various distros can be found here. Typing the following instructions in a terminal window installed pipelight on both my Xubuntu 12.04 and 13.10 pc’s.
YaCy is a Linux OS and software stack designed to de-centralize the Internet by allowing users to build their own peer-to-peer search portals, limiting its potential only by the number of active users connected to the Internet. The technology can also be used for Intranet searches on corporate and school sites. The user only needs to download and install the software stack on a dedicated machine in order to contribute to the network.
For months now David Herrmann has been working on a new project known as OpenWFD for open-source WiFi displays on Linux. OpenWFD is an open-source implementation of the WiFi Display Standard / Miracast. That work is now showing success and as part of that Herrmann has just announced Miraclecast as a component to providing open-source Miracast/WFD support on the Linux desktop.
