Hans Reiser's Son In Russia, Misses Court Appearance

Filed under
Reiser

The preliminary hearing for Oakland software developer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his estranged wife, Nina Reiser, was thrown into turmoil Tuesday when the couple's son failed to return from Russia to testify in the case.

Seven-year-old Rory Reiser testified on the first day of his father's hearing on Dec. 11, but he was scheduled to testify again Tuesday at the request of Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger, who is presiding over the hearing.

Rory and his 5-year-old sister Nio went to Russia over the holidays with their grandmother Irina Sharanova, the mother of Nina Reiser, a native of Russia who disappeared Sept. 3.

Rory and Nio were scheduled to return to the Bay Area on Sunday.

Hans Reiser didn't attend Tuesday's hearing because traffic problems delayed the bus that transported him from the county jail to court.

Reports state Reiser's son is likely to stay in Russia as courts there are seeking custody.

  • Ten Years of Vim
     

    The philosophy behind Vim takes a while to sink in: While other editors focus on writing as the central part of working with text, Vim thinks it's editing.

     

    You see, most of the time I don't spend writing new text; instead, I edit existing text.

GNU/Linux: Parrot 4.0, Oregan, Containers and Linux 4.18 Plans

  • Parrot 4.0 is out
    Parrot 4.0 has been released. Parrot is a security-oriented distribution aimed at penetration tests and digital forensics analysis, with additional tools to preserve privacy.
  • Parrot 4.0 release notes
  • Oregan launches SparQ middleware for Linux and Android TV
    Oregan said that the open standards-based offering resolves the differences between the current security and performance requirements of modern-day TV services and the hardware capabilities of STBs that were deployed up to a decade ago.
  • Linux app support coming to older Chrome OS devices
    Linux apps on Chrome OS is one of the biggest developments for the OS since Android apps. Previous reports stated Chromebooks with certain kernel versions would be left in the dust, but the Chrome OS developers have older devices on the roadmap, too. When Google first broke silence on Linux app functionality, it was understood that Linux kernel 4.4 was required to run apps due to dependencies on newer kernel modules. Thanks to an issue found on Chromium’s public bugtracker, we have confirmation that containers won’t be limited to the handful of Chrome OS devices released with kernel 4.4.
  • Looking Ahead To The Linux 4.18 Kernel
    There still are several weeks to go until the Linux 4.17 kernel will be officially released and for that to initiate the Linux 4.18 merge window, but we already know some of the features coming to this next kernel cycle as well as an idea for some other work that may potentially land.
