Reiser presents hard drives in court

Filed under
Reiser

Two hard drives that computer engineer Hans Reiser removed from one of his computers shortly after his estranged wife Nina disappeared on Sept. 3, 2006, were produced in court today by his attorney, William DuBois.

DuBois pulled the hard drives from a large envelope and gave them to Reiser to see if they fit into a computer that previously had been entered into evidence in his trial on charges that he murdered Nina, who had filed for divorce two years before she disappeared.

Reiser said they appeared to be the hard drives that he previously testified that he gave to DuBois shortly after Nina disappeared, probably on Sept. 7, 2006.
When he was cross-examined by prosecutor Paul Hora on March 20, Reiser said he removed the hard drives from his computer because he didn't want Oakland police to have access to them.

But he said that since he had revealed in court that DuBois had the hard drives, he expected they would be turned over to Hora soon. However, Hora on March 20 asked in a thundering voice, "What good are they now?"

Kernel 3.18 development – the kernel column

Linus Torvalds announced Linux 3.17, the Shuffling Zombie Juror, saying, “The past week was fairly calm, and so I have no qualms about releasing 3.17 on the normal schedule”. The latest kernel includes a number of nice headline features, such as the new getrandom() system call and sealed files APIs that we covered in previous issues of LU&D. Linux 3.17 also includes support for less highlighted new features, such as new signature checking of kexec()’d kernel images and sparse files on Samba file systems (which is significant for those mounting Windows and Mac shares).

Python 3 Support Added To The GNOME Shell

The GNOME Shell 3.15.2 release fixes some visual glitching, improves the layout of the extension installation dialog, supports the CSS margin property, and offers other bug fixes and minor enhancements. Most notable to GNOME Shell 3.15.2 though is there's finally Python 3 support.

Details on GNOME's overall Python 3 porting work can be found via this Wiki page. Read more
