TuxMachines: ConnochaetOS Makes Slackware Truly Free and a Bit Easier

Friday 5th of June 2015 12:55:38 AM

Of course, Linux is open source. Most people mistakenly equate open source with "free," as in pay nothing. Experienced Linux users know, however, that the open source concept separates the price of the software from the cost of obtaining enterprise-level modifications and support.

Reddit: Ask r/Linux: What is one GNU/Linux feature you love the most?

Friday 5th of June 2015 12:43:01 AM

I'm a relatively new user but one of the most amazing features I've encountered so far is FUSE.

FUSE is Filesystem in Userspace. Normally filesystem code runs in the kernel level. So when you want to get the contents of a file, the program (vi for example) makes a system call, the filesystem code in the kernel then handles the request and returns relevant data to the program. But with FUSE, you can write code that runs as an application. The power of this is that you can basically make a filesystem out of anything. You can make a filesystem that contains all your emails from GMail, or a filesystem that contains articles from Wikipedia. Take a look at more examples here.

The best part is that creating a filesystem is super easy. If you know C, you can spend a weekend and write your own filesystem!

So r/Linux, what are features in GNU/Linux that you absolutely love that some people might not know about?

LinuxInsider: ConnochaetOS Makes Slackware Truly Free and a Bit Easier

Friday 5th of June 2015 12:04:29 AM
ConnochaetOS is a nice entry into a pure, free Linux experience. Most people mistakenly equate open source with "free," as in pay nothing. Experienced Linux users know, however, that the open source concept separates the price of the software from the cost of obtaining enterprise-level modifications and support. The notion of "free" does not mean there's no cost to get it. Open source licenses prevent anyone from selling or owning the code. They allow the software to be used, modified and shared under defined terms and conditions.

6-Way File-System Comparison On The Linux 4.1 Kernel

With the Linux 4.1 kernel having recently been released, I decided to conduct a fresh round of file-system comparisons on this new kernel using a solid-state drive. The file-systems tested in this article were the in-tree EXT4, Btrfs, XFS, F2FS, ReiserFS, and NILFS2 file-systems while a follow-up article will take a look at the out-of-tree contenders like Reiser4 and ZFS atop Linux 4.1.

Fedora at Phoronix and FUDCon APAC

  • Fedora For MIPS Is Now Out In Testing, Supports The Creator CI20
    In cooperation with Imagination Technologies, the first Fedora image for the MIPS architecture is now out in testing. This initial Fedora 22 MIPS release supports the low-cost MIPS Creator CI20 development board that packs in two 1.2GHz MIPS32 processor cores and PowerVR graphics.
  • Pinos Is For Linux Video What PulseAudio Is For Audio
    Christian Schaller of Red Hat explained in the new blog post, "One of the original goals of Pinos was to provide the same level of advanced hardware handling for Video that PulseAudio provides for Audio. For those of you who has been around for a while you might remember how you once upon a time could only have one application using the sound card at the same time until PulseAudio properly fixed that. Well Pinos will allow you to share your video camera between multiple applications and also provide an easy to use API to do so."
  • Fedora Is Still Looking For A Diversity Advisor
    Back in March there was the announcement of Fedora looking for a diversity advisor as a volunteer position to help promote diversity within this popular Linux distribution.
