Rift Brewing Between Reiser and His Attorney

Filed under
Reiser

As Linux engineer Hans Reiser's murder trial ended its first day here Tuesday, the rift between the defendant and his attorney appeared to be fracturing even more.

William DuBois, who is Reiser's chief defense attorney, was clearly agitated by his client as proceedings finished up here about 4:30 p.m. Pacific. "My client was once again interrupting me," DuBois told Superior Court Judge Larry Goodman, who was listening to DuBois' motion in a bid to exclude evidence from jurors.

Dubois also told the judge, outside the jury's presence, that he hoped Reiser, who has pleaded not guilty, "keeps his insistences to a minimum."

Moments earlier, the Alameda County jury was dismissed for the day.

The rift between DuBois and Reiser came a day after DuBois told reporters that defending the self-proclaimed genius was "a difficult thing."

After the jury left, Reiser wanted to say something to the judge who was leaving to chambers. "I'm not listening to the defendant," Judge Goodman said and left.

V2 Of KDBUS Published For Linux Kernel Review

The second revision to the Linux kernel based D-Bus implementation is now available for review. Greg Kroah-Hartman on Thursday night posted the "v2" revision of the KDBUS implementation for providing the kernel with a new IPC implementation that resembles the existing user-space D-Bus daemon while adding extra features. Among the changes in this revision to KDBUS are exposing its control files and other information via a new kdbusfs file-system, KDBUS expects to be mounted to /sys/fs/kdbus, a new KDBUS domain is created for each time kdbusfs is mounted, and various other low-level changes. More details via the patch-set series. It's not clear yet whether KDBUS will be ready for merging in the Linux 3.19 kernel or will be held off until Linux 3.20 or longer. Read more
