openSUSE Project's Dominique Leuenberger was proud to announce the availability of the recently released GNOME 3.24 desktop environment into the software repositories of the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release.
According to the developer, and to our knowledge, openSUSE Tumbleweed is now the first GNU/Linux distributions to offer the GNOME 3.24 packages to their users. We know that openSUSE is a distro mostly oriented towards the KDE Plasma desktop, but support for GNOME is provided at the same level of quality.
Linux Action Show ends after 10-year run
This past Sunday, Jupiter Broadcasting announced the Linux Action Show—one of the longest-running podcasts in the Linux world, which has aired almost continuously since June 10, 2006—is coming to an end and closing down production.
Over a decade. That is a seriously good run for any show—podcast, TV, radio or otherwise. When I and my co-host created the Linux Action Show (typically abbreviated as LAS) nearly 11 years ago, we had no idea it would last this long. Nor did we have any idea of how far it would grow.
Red Hat, Inc. (RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today introduced a new partner program designed to enable a deeper collaborative go-to-market strategy between Red Hat and participating partner organizations and optimize the value chain for application development and integration projects.
Today, the next Tizen smartphone, which should be the named the Samsung Z4, has received its WiFi certification (certification ID: WFA70348) – Model number SM-Z400F/DS with firmware Z400F.001 on the 2.4Ghz band.
WiFi certification is usually one of the last steps before a mobile device gets released and means a launch is coming real soon as we have already seen the Z4 make its debut appearance at the FCC. For the previous model, the Samsung Z2, we saw it get WIFi certified on 7 July and then launched on 23 August, a mere 6 weeks.
Lesser known but still handy Linux commands
Some Linux commands that might not be sitting in your top favorites list can still come in very handy in a number of ways. In today's post, we're going to examine some interesting though somewhat unusual command options.
FreeRTOS-based remote I/O module links to IBM Bluemix and Watson IoT
Artila’s “RIO-2010BM” remote digital I/O device runs FreeRTOS on a Cortex-M3, offers isolated inputs, and supports IBM’s Bluemix and Watson IoT platforms.
Like Artila Electronics’ RIO-2015PG, the RIO-2010BM is a remote I/O module that runs FreeRTOS on an MCU, and offers isolated digital I/O. The device is designed specifically for transmitting Modbus/TCP remote data to the IBM Bluemix service and IBM’s Watson IoT cloud-based analytics platform.
The Gemini PDA is part smart phone and part laptop, combined together in a 90s style clamshell that wouldn’t look out-of-place in an episode of Sex in the City.
It’s so delightfully 90s — and yet bang up to date.
But the best bit? The Gemini PDA runs Linux.
