TuxMachines: Fedora: The Latest

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 09:57:53 PM
  • Getting Started with Release Validation Testing in Fedora QA
  • F24 Beta Announcement (Technical & End user input sought)
  • Fedora 25 Not Scheduling A Mass Rebuild Is Raising Some Concerns

    With FESCo having decided not to schedule a mass rebuild for Fedora 25 due out at the end of the year, some developers are unhappy and feel its sacrificing quality over trying to push out a release on time.

    It was decided earlier this year not to schedule in a mass rebuild of all packages for Fedora 25 since it's a time consuming process and the developers aim to ship Fedora 25 before the end-of-year holidays without having to drag out the release into the new year. As such, any changes that would necessitate a rebuild of all F25 RPMs should be diverted to Fedora 26.

  • is now using Lektor

    Couple of years back we moved dgplug into a static website. But still there are requirements when we do want to update parts of the site in a timely manner. We also wanted to track the changes. We tried to maintain a sphinx based docs, but somehow we never managed to do well in that case.

ChaletOS, which “came from the style of the mountain houses in Switzerland” is a beautifully-crafted Linux distro that aims to ease the transition of users from other operating systems (specifically Windows) to Linux.

TuxMachines: OpenWRT Gets Forked By Some Of Its Own Developers As LEDE Project

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 09:32:07 PM

While the OpenWRT project is a very well known embedded Linux distribution primarily for network devices, a number of their own developers have decided to fork away from the project.

In what appears to be a move to have new project leaders, a group of OpenWRT developers announced LEDE, their fork of the project. LEDE considers itself a spin-off of OpenWRT with many of the same goals. LEDE is short for the Linux Embedded Development Environment.

TuxMachines: Huawei's Jewel and Elegant Android Wear watches now available in US

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 08:58:12 PM

Huawei's promised to bring a "flagship" phone to the US this year. The Chinese company built the Nexus 6P, Google's current flagship, but the name "Huawei" won't be familiar to most US consumers, judging their Android phone options. In the meantime, Huawei is boosting its Stateside credibility with two new Android Wear watches: the Jewel (pictured above) and the Elegant (below), both aimed at women.

TuxMachines: Xubuntu 16.04 - not for Linux beginners

Tuesday 3rd of May 2016 08:52:15 PM

Xubuntu 16.04 felt very polished, snappy and easy for me. There were no issues or bugs that I noticed while running it in a Live mode.

The only downside that I would like to mention is the set of applications. It is minimalistic, if not barebones. Many useful tools should be installed by the user from the repositories. Of course, it's not a problem if you know the applications you need. Otherwise, you need to search first. That makes me think that Xubuntu 16.04 is not oriented to the Linux beginners.

Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition review

The Meizu Pro 5 is the latest flagship smartphone to run on Canonical’s Ubuntu operating system. Ubuntu is designed to work across all device types – including mobile, tablets, convertibles and desktops – using a common core code. This is similar to Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile. However, unlike Microsoft’s code, Ubuntu is totally open source and has largely been developed and improved by the desktop OS’s millions-strong user base. This means the OS is capable of evolving and changing at a great pace and has update cycles that would make most sysadmins weep. Read more

Whatever Happened To Ubuntu Light?

Amidst the onslaught of Intel-based netbooks in the late 2000s was a custom instant-on OS from Canonical. Ubuntu Light was to be a proverbial glint of free software at the end of a tunnel crowded by clones. It was a way for OEMs to add extra value to their Windows devices and differentiate themselves from competitors. It was a way for users to dip their toes into Ubuntu rather than drown at the deep end. And yet…you are probably having a hard time recalling it. Read more

Everything you need to know about Linux Commands

It won't be long after starting to use Linux that you ask a question and the answer begins with, "Open a terminal and..." At this point, you may be thrown into an alien environment with typed Linux commands instead of cheery-looking icons. But the terminal is not alien, it's just different. You are used to a GUI now, but you had to learn that, and the same applies to the command line. This raises an obvious question: "I already know how to use a windowed desktop, why must I learn something different?" Read more
