TuxMachines: Create a wiki on your Linux desktop with Zim

2 hours 44 min ago

There's no denying the usefulness of a wiki, even to a non-geek. You can do so much with one—write notes and drafts, collaborate on projects, build complete websites. And so much more.

I've used more than a few wikis over the years, either for my own work or at various contract and full-time gigs I've held. While traditional wikis are fine, I really like the idea of desktop wikis. They're small, easy to install and maintain, and even easier to use. And, as you've probably guessed, there are a number a desktop wikis available for Linux.

Reddit: Embedded Android vs Embedded Linux?

3 hours 55 sec ago

Hello,

We are building a custom platform for our connected hardware product and are evaluating whether to go for AOSP or a Linux based platform. Our system will output at 1080p resolution to a 40 inch display (similar to a digital signage) so it will require a decent GPU and a processor since we are going to be running games created in Unity. We have a working prototype with a custom spec'd hardware running Linux but are evaluating Android since it has amazing support in Unity. However, we are completely new to mobile hardware (ARM architecture and mobile GPUs) so we would need to hire an expert if we were to go the Android route. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

LXer: How Kubernetes became the solution for migrating legacy applications

3 hours 38 min ago
In the early days of the internet, if you wanted to launch an application, you had to buy or rent hardware. This was a physical server or a rack of servers, and you needed one server per application, so it was expensive. In 2001, VMware came out with virtualization—software that allowed users to run multiple applications on the same hardware. The cost savings for businesses were tremendous.

Wednesday 21st of February 2018 05:01:04 AM
Xorgproto debuted earlier this month as a centralized package of all X.Org protocol headers that used to be versioned and developed independently. Given the slower development now of the xorg-server and lots of the protocols being intertwined, they are now all bundled together. Tuesday marked the 2018.3 release with the new additions for Keith Packard's SteamVR Linux infrastructure work...

Reddit: Jenkins weird file permission issue

Wednesday 21st of February 2018 04:36:40 AM

I’m running Jenkins 2.89 using 1 master with 2 slaves. The Jenkins jobs run python scripts and write files out to the /files folder. That /files folder is owned by jenkins:jenkins and has 0755 mask and is also shared to the slaves using NFS with write access for the slaves. The slaves have jenkins user with the same uid and gid as the master.

The problem I’m having is when the slaves run the jobs and write files to /files folder, it has o+r, meaning anyone can read. That’s what I want. However, if those same jobs run on the master and the master write files to /files folder, it doesn’t have o+r, no one can read those files.

I switch to the jenkins user on the master and manually write files to the /files folder and it does have o+r. I tried everything I could google. I’ve added umask=022 and various variations to /etc/sysconfig/jenkins but to no avail. I made sure .bashrc and .bash_profile for jenkins user on master matches those same files on the slaves as well. Could someone please tell when what may be wrong? Thanks in advanced.
