Gumstix released a customizable carrier board for its tiny OMAP4430-based DuoVero COMs, featuring touchscreen and Raspberry Pi style CSI-2 camera support.
Gumstix has launched an open-source “Garret 50C” carrier board for its dual-core DuoVero computer-on-module family, the company’s higher-end alternative to its single-core Overo COMs. The board was designed with the company’s online Geppetto DIY design and quick-turn prototype manufacturing service, which customers can use to customize the board.
Mycroft, the company behind the Mycroft AI open source intelligent personal assistant for GNU/Linux operating systems, has published a story recently on how they are using Ubuntu Linux and Snaps to deliver their software Mycroft devices.
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.
Datamation: There continues to be a credibility crisis with the Linux desktop that could be addressed with better inclusion in the mainstream marketplace.
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.submitted by /u/cr33p3r1n1134
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.
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.submitted by /u/roxasxemnas83
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.
