Linux-powered NVR system offers up to eight PoE+ ports

SolidRun’s rugged “ClearFog GTR A385” NVR system runs Linux on a Marvell Armada A385 and offers 4x 90W PoE++ or 8x 30W PoE+ camera ports plus powered GbE PoE WAN and 2.5Gbps SFP+ ports, 3x mini-PCIe, and optional 2x SATA. SolidRun announced a fanless network video recorder for indoor or outdoor surveillance and industrial infrastructure applications. The ClearFog GTR A385 is available in an unpriced S4 model and a $345 L8 model. Both provide 4x PoE++ Gigabit Ethernet ports for 90W Power-over-Ethernet control of cameras. The L8 model provides four more GbE/PoE ports that can be configured with the first four ports to alternatively support 8x 30W PoE+ (802.3bt) connections. All the ports are 802.3at/af/bt-compliant power sourcing equipment (PSE) ports with up to type 4 PoE support. Read more

Manjaro Linux 18.1.0 Juhraya Cinnamon - Spicy but sweet

You know how the popular saying goes. When it rains ... people drive slowly just to annoy you. But as it happens, I received a bunch of emails from people asking me two things: 1) Why have I not recently done any more Cinnamon reviews (other than Mint)? 2) When am I going to review the latest version of Manjaro 18.1 Juhraya? The answer to these question is: yes. At the same time! I decided to try Manjaro Cinnamon, not something I've done before, so it should be an interesting, refreshing and hopefully worthwhile exercise. The test box will be the same one I used for the Illyria Xfce test, so we can compare things in earnest - and accurately. This is an eight-book mixed Windows & Linux box, and it comes with UEFI, Intel graphics, 16 sweet partitions, and another instance of Manjaro that we won't touch in this review. Begin to start.

Pacman 5.2 Release

We have a clear winner. Although I’m sure that at least half of those are in responses to bugs he created! He claims it is a much smaller proportion… And a new contributor in third. What has changed in this release? Nothing super exciting as far as I’m concerned, but check out the detailed list here. We have completely removed support for delta packages. This was a massively underused feature, usually made updates slower for a slight saving on bandwidth, and had a massive security hole. Essentially, a malicious package database in combination with delta packages could run arbitrary commands on your system. This would be less of an issue if a certain Linux distro signed their package databases… Anyway, on balance I judged it better to remove this feature altogether. We may come back to this in the future with a different implementation, but I would not expect that any time soon. Note a similar vulnerability was found with using XferCommand to download packages, but we plugged that hole instead of removing it! Read more

  • GCC 10 Has C++20 Concepts Support In Order

    Concepts is one of the big features of the forthcoming C++20 that extends the language's templates functionality to add type-checking to templates and other compile-time validation. The existing concepts support in GCC was updated to reflect differences between the years old technical specification and the version being introduced as part of C++20. After review, that C++20 concepts support was merged earlier this month for GCC 10 as well as the libstdc++ updates.
