LXer: Linux Mint 18 improves security, but at a cost

Thursday 7th of July 2016 09:36:02 PM
Version 18 of the popular Ubuntu derivative Linux Mint was released in late June, bringing with it a much-needed emphasis on security, and a refocusing of organizational resources to deliver a more polished distribution. While Linux Mint 18 moves in a positive direction overall, the direction that founder and project leader Clement Lefebvre envisions is likely to raise some eyebrows.

TuxMachines: Rugged, network oriented module dishes up 12-core QorIQ SoC

Thursday 7th of July 2016 09:16:37 PM

X-ES announced an “XPedite5850” COM Express Basic Type 5 module that runs Linux on an NXP QorIQ T4240 SoC with 12 e6500 PowerPC cores.

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) regularly taps NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ system-on-chips for its Xpedite SBCs and modules, both the newer ARM-based variety, as in the XPedite6401 and XPedite6370 (QorIQ LS1043A or LS2088A) and the PowerPC-based Xpedite 6101 (QorIQ T2081, T1042, or T1022). The new XPedite5850 COM Express module uses NXP’s highest-end Power Architecture chip, the QorIQ T4240, and appears to be the first COM Express module based on the SoC.

Reddit: LC3 Simulator install help

Thursday 7th of July 2016 08:19:38 PM

I need some help installing the LC3 Simulator. I've tried everything I thought of, and everything I have found online (which is not much, honestly). I also looked here on reddit using google and found nothing that helped me.

I haven't been able to install it correctly or make it work. Could somebody please help me? I need it for a class.

Please and thank you.

TuxMachines: Tsuru open source PaaS puts developers first

Thursday 7th of July 2016 07:31:16 PM

A new open source PaaS, Tsuru, is out to ease the application deployment process by reducing it to little more than a Git push command.

The workflow for Tsuru, according to its documentation, consists of writing an app, backing it with resources like databases or caching, and deploying it to production with Git. Tsuru handles the rest, including crating up the apps in Docker containers and managing their workloads. Its creators claim it can be deployed both locally and on services like AWS, DigitalOcean, or Apache CloudStack.

Reddit: Linux noob...feel like I'm missing out

Thursday 7th of July 2016 07:28:43 PM

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop about a year ago because I valued the privacy of Linux and I just thought it was cool. I felt like a programmer setting up my dual boot and using the terminal (even though I was doing very basic stuff). I'm very much still a noob when it comes to Linux. I only use computers for everyday things like browsing, school work, and gaming so I haven't done anything else in Ubuntu. But seeing how much knowledge people have regarding Linux on this sub makes me feel like I'm missing out on the Linux experience and I could be doing more. So is there any cool stuff you guys would recommend I do? Whether it be move on to other distros or customize what I have. Thanks.

Reddit: Guys you should check out git-annex!

Thursday 7th of July 2016 06:41:47 PM

https://git-annex.branchable.com/walkthrough/

It will keep track of your files, synchros to the latest version and can be used to work with unstable drives by keeping track of copies.

Normally i have a main laptop and know i have a movie saved somewhere, but i dont know where. So i just redownload because i dont want to search all my folders/hard drives/usb sticks etc. With git annex it creates a folder with links to the files. So if i want to watch a movie it checks first if it's already available on a mounted drive. If not it tells you on which device you can finde it!

So awesome. You should definitely check it out. For me its a Dropbox killer.

Works best if you have a nat or a raspi in our home network.

Here is a video where some guy explains it: https://youtu.be/IjHqIgPRQyA

Debian and Ubuntu News

  • Snap interfaces for sandboxed applications
    Last week, we took a look at the initial release of the "portal" framework developed for Flatpak, the application-packaging format currently being developed in GNOME. For comparison, we will also explore the corresponding resource-control framework available in the Snap format developed in Ubuntu. The two packaging projects have broadly similar end goals, as many have observed, but they tend to vary quite a bit in the implementation details. Naturally, those differences are of particular importance to the intended audience: application developers. There is some common ground between the projects. Both use some combination of techniques (namespaces, control groups, seccomp filters, etc.) to restrict what a packaged application can do. Moreover, both implement a "deny by default" sandbox, then provide a supplemental means for applications to access certain useful system resources on a restricted or mediated basis. As we will see, there is also some overlap in what interfaces are offered, although the implementations differ. Snap has been available since 2014, so its sandboxing and resource-control implementations have already seen real-world usage. That said, the design of Snap originated in the Ubuntu Touch project aimed at smartphones, so some of its assumptions are undergoing revision as Snap comes to desktop systems. In the Snap framework, the interfaces that are defined to provide access to system resources are called, simply, "interfaces." As we will see, they cover similar territory to the recently unveiled "portals" for Flatpak, but there are some key distinctions. Two classes of Snap interfaces are defined: one for the standard resources expected to be of use to end-user applications, and one designed for use by system utilities. Snap packages using the standard interfaces can be installed with the snap command-line tool (which is the equivalent of apt for .deb packages). Packages using the advanced interfaces require a separate management tool.
