That's it for now. As I said the last time I wrote about KaOS, if you are looking for a smaller Linux distribution, and KDE Plasma is your desktop of choice, and you don't mind using QupZilla instead of Firefox or Chrome (or you don't mind installing your browser of choice from the KaOS repositories), and you don't mind using Calligra instead of LibreOffice (or you don't mind installing LibreOffice), then KaOS is definitely worth a try. It's a good distribution and it just keeps getting better and better. The KaOS developers have shown an admirable ability to maintain their focus on what they originally said they wanted to do.
myDevices announced Arduino support for its web- and mobile-based, Raspberry Pi compatible “Cayenne” drag-and-drop IoT development and management platform.
Cayenne, with which developers, designers, and engineers can “quickly prototype and share their connected device projects,” has expanded support beyond the Raspberry Pi to Arduino boards, says myDevices. Billed as the world’s first drag-and-drop Internet-of-Things Project Builder, the currently free, still Beta-level Cayenne lets users remotely monitor and control IoT projects from the web, including via Android or iOS apps. According to myDevices, Cayenne has 40,000 users who have collectively tracked some 4 billion IoT events such as threshold alerts, sensor history items, and rules engine triggers.
SolidRun launched an OpenWrt networking-focused ClearFog Base SBC with a Marvell Armada 38x dual-core -A9 SoC, dual GbE ports, SFP, and mikroBus expansion.
Last December when SolidRun launched its ClearFog Pro sandwich-style networking SBC featuring an Armada 38x-based computer-on-module, it also announced a lower-end ClearFog Base model that uses the same COM and was said to be “coming soon.” The ClearFog Base has finally arrived with a $90 price, down from $170 for the Pro. The price includes the cost of the COM, but not options including a microSD card, eMMC, or a power adapter.
Robotical's hackable, mostly open source, WiFi-controlled bipedal bot has a 180MHz Cortex-M4 MCU, and is primarily designed to teach kids about programming using Scratch. It accommodates an internal Raspberry Pi.
I was just wondering if it was possible to choose which OS I boot into with just a keystroke. Like how you can usually press f2 to boot into your bios. Could I do something like set L to boot into Linux and W into Windows on startup? I did a little poking around but I only saw solutions where you were already in one OS and trying to boot to the other. Thanks!submitted by /u/defusedbomb
Question 1: Is it possible to encrypt a disk on a running system?
Question 2: Is there a way to implement disk encryption without having to enter a password on startup? (i.e. on a server, I'd like to make it boot without needing a password input. It needs to be autonomous).
I apologize if this question has been asked before on here, but I didn't see it anywhere. Thanks!submitted by /u/jaimeaux
It's 2016 and most distros can't fix screen tearing and you want people to ditch Windows? LOL! For example, the same settings that should fix Nvidia screen tearing on Arch is not working on Ubuntu, because LightDM will override any xorg.conf settings (At leaset in Ubuntu 16.04). Not matter which driver version, flavour. It can't be fixed. Better use Windows than Linux for now. Too many issues with complicated solutions!submitted by /u/XxBrazilianoxX
