  • Kevin Fenzi: Devconf.cz 2020

    This year again I had the honor of being able to attend devconf.cz. Many thanks to Red Hat (My employer) for sending me to the conference (it also allowed me to attend some work meetings after the conference).

    The trip out to Brno was much as it has been for me in the past, except this time it was even longer since the Portland to Amsterdam flight I used to take is no longer offered, so I had to go from Portland to Seattle and then Amsterdam. Due to various scheduling issues I also went to Vienna this time instead of Prague. No particular problems on the trip, just a long haul. The train in Vienna was nice and clean and fast and comfortable.

  • DevConf CZ 2020: play by play

    This is my third time attending DevConf CZ. I attended on behalf of RIT LibreCorps for professional development, before a week of work-related travel. DevConf CZ is also a great opportunity to meet friends and colleagues from across time zones. This year, I arrived hoping to better understand the future of Red Hat’s technology, see how others are approaching complex problems in emerging technology and open source, and of course, to have yummy candy.

  • Bits from MiniDebCamp Brussels and FOSDEM 2020

    I traveled to Brussels from January 28th to February 6th to join MiniDebCamp and FOSDEM 2020. It was my second trip to Brussels because I was there in 2019 to join Video Team Sprint and FOSDEM

    MiniDebCamp took place at Hackerspace Brussels (HSBXL) for 3 days (January 29-31). My initial idea was travel on 27th and arrive in Brussels on 28th to rest and go to MiniDebCamp on the first day, but I had buy a ticket to leave Brazil on 28th because it was cheaper.

Announcing miniDebConf Montreal 2020 -- August 6th to August 9th

  • Announcing miniDebConf Montreal 2020 -- August 6th to August 9th 2020

    Dear Debianites,

    We are happy to announce miniDebConf Montreal 2020! The event will take place in Montreal, at Concordia University's John Molson School of Business from August 6th to August 9th 2020. Anybody interested in Debian development is welcome.

    Following the announcement of the DebConf20 location, our desire to participate became incompatible with our commitment toward the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign launched by Palestinian civil society in 2005. Hence, many active Montreal-based Debian developpers, along with a number of other Debian developpers, have decided not to travel to Israel in August 2020 for DebConf20.

    Nevertheless, recognizing the importance of DebConf for the health of both the developper community and the project as a whole, we decided to organize a miniDebConf just prior to DebConf20 in the hope that fellow developpers who may have otherwise skipped DebConf entirely this year might join us instead. Fellow developpers who decide to travel to both events are of course most welcome.

  • How to Create Two Panel Layout in GNOME Shell Us – Linux Hint

    “Dash to Panel” is a GNOME Shell extension that can be installed in Ubuntu, Fedora and other GNOME Shell based Linux distributions. It aims to provide an alternative and much more customizable application dock / taskbar for managing pinned and running apps. Until recently, Dash to Panel was limited to a single panel that combined application menus, taskbar and system tray. However, a new update for Dash to Panel was released a couple of months back, allowing users to create two panels. Using this new option, you can now emulate the classic GNOME2 layout, featuring a two panel setup for managing system tray and taskbar. This article will explain how to create this two panel layout using Dash to Panel GNOME Shell extension.

  • How to Install Heat Sinks on the Raspberry Pi – Linux Hint

    There is a relation between temperature and performance in every electronic device. The lower the temperature, the better the performance. The higher the temperature, the lower the performance. Within a certain boundary, this effect is visible in electronic devices like a Raspberry Pi. So, it is essential to keep the temperature of the Raspberry Pi within a certain boundary. Heat sinks are metal objects that are usually placed over the chips and processor of Raspberry Pi. The heat sinks help transfer the heat generated on the processors and other chips to the air. That way, the temperature of the processors and chips remain within a certain boundary that won’t hamper the productivity of the device. In this article, I am going to show you how to install heat sinks on the Raspberry Pi. So, let’s get started.

  • How to Create Hard Link and Soft Link in Linux? – Linux Hint

    In the Linux operating system, all the information about a file is stored in its respective inode. These inodes allow you to know all the metadata of a file. There is a concept of creating links to a file in Linux, just like we create pointers to the files in most of the popular programming languages. These links are basically of two types: the hard and the soft links. A hard link to a file is essentially an exact copy of the file, which means that a hard link to a file and the actual file will share the same inode. The biggest advantage of creating a hard link is that even if you accidentally delete the actual file, you will still be able to access its contents via its hard link. On the other hand, a soft link or a symbolic link works exactly like a pointer or a shortcut to a file. It is not an accurate copy of the file but only points to the original file. A soft link to a file and the actual file will have different inode values. Moreover, if you delete the actual file at any time, you will not be able to access its contents via its soft link. Today, we will share with you the methods of creating a hard link and soft link to a file in Linux. Note: We have used Linux Mint 20 for walking you through the methods shown below.

It’s Official: Linux Kernel 5.10 Will Be an LTS Release

According to a recent tweet from renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman, the next LTS (Long Term Support) kernel release will be Linux 5.10, which recently entered development with a first Release Candidate (RC) milestone already available for public testing. This means that Linux kernel 5.10, which will probably see the light of day near the Christmas 2020 holidays, will receive updates for at least two years. But, as it happened with previous LTS kernel series, support could be extended to up to six years, probably until December 2026. Read more
