Hard Times at Novell: renting space and laying off workers

Filed under
SUSE

Novell is looking for companies to fill surplus space in three buildings on its Provo campus. The software company has signed a deal with two real estate firms to conduct a national search for technology companies that might be attracted to the high-tech campus.

Buildings E and F are available for sale or lease. Building A is expected to be available for lease only.

Last week, Novell announced that restructuring this year could cost $45 million, in large part because of severance packages that are a part of job cuts announced in December.

The company has not said how many jobs it will cut. Some cuts were made in the first quarter and the rest will be spread over the next three quarters, but the impact in Provo appears minimal.

Full Story.

Slackware Mass Rebuild

  • Mass Rebuild to Remove .la files
  • Slackware-current ChangeLog 20180419
    Hi folks, and welcome to the third ever Slackware Mass Rebuild (and the longest ChangeLog entry in project history). There were two primary motivations for rebuilding everything in the main tree. The first was to switch to the new C++ ABI. The second was to get rid of all the .la files in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Debian, Elive, and Ubuntu

  • Re-elected as Debian Project Leader
    I have been extremely proud to have served as the Debian Project Leader since my election in early 2017. During this time I've learned a great deal about the inner workings of the Project as well as about myself. I have grown as a person thanks to all manner of new interactions and fresh experiences. I believe is a privilege simply to be a Debian Developer, let alone to be selected as their representative. It was therefore an even greater honour to learn that I have been re-elected by the community for another year. I profoundly and wholeheartedly thank everyone for placing their trust in me for another term.
  • Elive 3.0 is ALMOST here!
    Elive's latest beta, 2.9.90, was released a couple of weeks ago. According to the description, this is the last beta before the official release of version 3.0. I have been waiting for Elive for quite a long time. My first contact with it was through a live CD of version 2.0 Topaz in 2010, when I had recently migrated to Linux. I was truly impressed by the beauty and polish of the distro. I never installed it, though. I was put off by the fact that it was the only distro that could not be installed unless one paid for an installing module. Back then, I assumed that free software had to be "gratis".
  • NGINX Updates: Ubuntu Bionic, and Mainline and Stable PPAs
    Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 now has 1.14.0 in the repositories, and very likely will have 1.14.0 for the lifecycle of 18.04 from April of 2018 through April of 2023, as soon as it is released.
