Docky keeps crashing and I can't figure out why. What exactly does this error message mean, and how can I fix it? Or is it just an issue for the developer?Cairo.Surface is leaking, programmer is missing a call to Dispose Set MONO_CAIRO_DEBUG_DISPOSE to track allocation traces [Fatal 16:38:59.026] [GLib] Source ID 751 was not found when attempting to remove it submitted by ansabhailte

Itus Networks is set to launch a $149 “iGuardian” network security appliance on Kickstarter that runs OpenWRT Linux and the Snort IPS stack on a MIPS64 SoC.
Few vendors have targeted the consumer network security appliance market, and even fewer have done so with pricing under $500. A San Jose, Calif.-based startup called Itus Networks, however, plans to protect your home WiFi router with a $149, open source Linux iGuardian device that offers both a network intrusion prevention system (NIPS) and a network intrusion detection system (NIDS). The device blocks cyber attacks while also filtering out malware “and other undesirable content,” says the company. Like other network security appliances, it sits between your Internet source and your WiFi router, acting as a security firewall.
Hey everyone, just a few days ago I updated Skype to version 184.108.40.206, and there's a major problem: it refuses to close. Up until the last update, the wm's (x) button didn't quit the app, but pressing C-q did. Now, however, that simply closes the window, but the process keeps running. Here's a list of the things I tried, in order, to kill the stupid process:
- Click the (x)
- Alt-F4 (Skype being owned by Windows, I thought this might work)
- Click on icon in the toolbar (I'm using Unity) -> click "Quit Skype"
- killall skype
- ps aux | grep skype -> kill -9 <skype pid>
Only the last one finally worked. This, to me, is malware. If browser hijackers count as "potentially unwanted software" and as malware, then so should this - it deliberately violates all expectations about keeping processes running, essentially lying to users. If I didn't need Skype for my job, I would have uninstalled it already.
By the way I'm not looking for sympathy, I just wanted to call attention to this terrible behavior. Seriously, if they wanted a daemon, then they should have written a fucking daemon!submitted by Ununoctium118

The development process of RHEL was always a bit of a riddle for me. As far as I understand - RHEL is forked from an older version of Fedora. The RHEL team is responsible for back porting security patches for the packages available in RHEL repositories. Red Hat does seem to have a large group of developers. Are they mostly contributing to open source projects available in RHEL? If so, does that mean that Red Hat pays its developers mostly to help the open source world?submitted by Reish
