TuxMachines: Kaby Lake is unleashed with Linux kernel 4.10

Wednesday 1st of March 2017 09:41:19 PM

The guy behind the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds, has built version 4.10 of the mainline kernel—nicknamed “Fearless Coyote.” Like any new kernel, version 4.10 has a slew of improvements for compatibility with a wide range of hardware. As I was digging through the commit log to see what’s new (a lot, actually), an entry on Kaby Lake caught my eye.

TuxMachines: How my new laptop illustrates one of the best things about Linux

Wednesday 1st of March 2017 09:12:17 PM

In January I wrote several times about my new low-priced ASUS X540S laptop, and how I loaded a variety of Linux distributions on it. I've been using the system for over a month now, and during that time I have come to like it even more than I did initially.

TuxMachines: Power stingy i.MX7 SMARC 2.0 module has Yocto and Android BSPs

Wednesday 1st of March 2017 09:10:37 PM

Embedian’s Linux-driven SMARC-FiMX7 is a SMARC 2.0 COM with a single- or dual-core i.MX7, up to 1GB RAM, 4GB eMMC, LVDS, GbE, and an optional starter kit.

The SMARC-FiMX7 is Embedian’s first SMARC 2.0 computer-on-module, and the first SMARC COM we’ve seen that taps NXP’s i.MX7 SoC. The company is no stranger to the 82 x 50mm SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) form factor, having released several SMARC 1.x COMs including the i.MX6 based SMARC-FiMX6 and TI AM437x driven SMARC-T4378.

TuxMachines: Linux hacker board has WiFi, BT, GbE, 8GB eMMC, and $30 price

Wednesday 1st of March 2017 09:08:38 PM

FriendlyElec has launched a $30, open spec “NanoPi M1 Plus” SBC with a quad-A7 SoC, onboard wireless, 8GB eMMC, a 40-pin RPi interface, and a GbE port.

FriendlyELEC (AKA FriendlyARM) has released a more feature-rich version of its community-backed, $15 NanoPi M1 SBC. The $30 NanoPi M1 Plus retains the 1.2GHz quad-core, Cortex-A7 Allwinner H3 SoC and 600MHz Mali-400 MP2 GPU, but adds features that meet or exceed those of the quad -A9 Samsung Exynos based NanoPi M2 ($25) and octa-core -A53 Exynos NanoPi M3 ($35). The NanoPi M1 Plus joins nine other NanoPi boards listed in our most recent Linux hacker board roundup — the most of any other vendor.

Phoronix: More Benchmarks Of The Latest Ubuntu 17.04 vs. Clear Linux

Wednesday 1st of March 2017 08:37:36 PM
Last week I posted Benchmarks Of Ubuntu 17.04 Beta vs. Antergos, Clear Linux, openSUSE Tumbleweed. Those results were interesting and as usual Clear Linux had led many of the benchmarks due to Intel's investments into highly optimizing this Linux distribution for the maximum out-of-the-box performance. For curiosity sake, I ran some fresh benchmarks of Ubuntu 17.04 daily vs. Clear Linux on another test system and have those results to share...

  • Announcing the Shim review process [Ed: accepting rather than fighting very malicious things]
    However, a legitimate criticism has been that there's very little transparency in Microsoft's signing process. Some people have waited for significant periods of time before being receiving a response. A large part of this is simply that demand has been greater than expected, and Microsoft aren't in the best position to review code that they didn't write in the first place.

    Neofytos Kolokotronis from the Chakra GNU/Linux project, an open-source operating system originally based on Arch Linux and the KDE Plasma desktop environment, announced the availability of the latest KDE updates in the distro's repositories. Those of you using Chakra GNU/Linux as your daily drive will be happy to learn that the stable repos were filled with numerous up-to-date packages from the recently released KDE Plasma 5.9.3 desktop environment, KDE Applications 16.12.3 software suite, and KDE Frameworks 5.32.0 collection of over 70 add-on libraries for Qt 5.
  • YaST Team: Highlights of YaST development sprint 32
    One of the known limitations of the current installer is that it’s only able to automatically propose an encrypted schema if LVM is used. For historical reasons, if you want to encrypt your root and/or home partitions but not to use LVM, you would need to use the expert partitioner… and hope for the best from the bootloader proposal. But the new storage stack is here (well, almost here) to make all the old limitations vanish. With our testing ISO it’s already possible to set encryption with just one click for both partition-based and LVM-based proposals. The best possible partition schema is correctly created and everything is encrypted as the user would expect. We even have continuous tests in our internal openQA instance for it. The part of the installer managing the bootloader installation is still not adapted, which means the resulting system would need some manual fixing of Grub before being able to boot… but that’s something for an upcoming sprint (likely the very next one).

    One of the many strengths of the Asus Tinker Board is its multimedia support. This 4K video capable machine is a mouthwatering prospect for the multimedia enthusiast. The machine has a respectable 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor. It’s only 32-bit (unlike the Raspberry Pi 3) but has a higher clock speed. The Tinker Board also sports an integrated ARM-based Mali T764 graphics processor (GPU).
