KDE at German Events, October 2005

Filed under
KDE

October in Germany is filled with a lot of local Free Software events and KDE is present at them. Join us first at Berlinux 2005 on Fri October 21 and Sat 22. Then we are off to Dresden for Linux-Info-Tag Dresden 2005 on Sat October 29. Read on for how we'll be helping the users to explore the full range of wonders in KDE.

Berlinux takes place at Berlin's Technical University. Ellen Reitmayr, Oswald Buddenhagen, Stephan Binner and some others will run a booth and demonstrate the latest of KDE.

At Linux-Info-Tag Dresden, which takes place at Dresden's Technical University (see a pattern?), the KDE stand will be run by Carsten Niehaus and Tobias König with sporadic help from Josef Spillner, Konrad Rosenbaum and Friedrich Kossebau. Our stall will be next to Skolelinux and will emphasise KDE-Edu and KDE-PIM. An additional talk by Tobias König (in German) will give information about the current state and future plans of KDE.

Full Story with live links.

Also, each video is only approximately 30 seconds to 2 minutes long. They avoid getting into the weeds too much at once, giving you chunks of knowledge, letting you test it out, then moving on to another topic. Each chapter points out that as the course progresses, you will go into further depth with each topic. Read more

Jailhouse 0.1 released

This release particularly means full exploitation of VT-d DMA and interrupt remapping to isolate assigned PCI devices from the hypervisor and foreign cells. Moreover, the usability of Jailhouse was greatly improved by the introduction and continuous extension of a generator for system configuration files. Finally, a framework for writing basic cell applications is available now. With a few lines of C code you can set up timer interrupts, read clocks or configure PCI devices for the use in simple bare-metal real-time applications. Read more
