GoblinX Releases G:Mini 3.0.rc01

Filed under
News

"The GoblinX Project is proud to announce the second release of the next G:Mini. The G:Mini 3.0 rc01 (2.9.90) is released. The G:Mini formely known as ‘GoblinX Mini Edition‘ is the son of GoblinX and contains only XFCE as the windows manager and GTK/GTK2 based applications. The edition is ideal for those users whose want to remaster the distro or with difficulties in downloading more than three hundred of megabytes (the original size of g:Standard).

This release was developed together with Vitor Micillo who worked hard in his own image to find bugs and report solutions. The final image was prepared by myself (Grobsch) and tested during last week.

This G:Mini edition includes the lastest Xfce 4.6 which brought several improvements and new features. Xfce-session now offers hibernate and suspend options. It has a new notification system with themes managed by Xfce-notifyd. Xfce-power-manager to help laptop users set up a power profile for two different modes “on battery power” and “on ac power”. Gigolo to manage connections to remote filesystems using GIO/GVFS. A better Control Center and more. Below there is a list with the most important changes.

Another major change is the release of different images, one full distribution without remove any files including all locales (internationalization files), and a second customized image only with default english language and without man pages, documentation, headers (.h), some themes and files.

In order to enable your own language with G:Mini full you must press TAB just after you select an Isolinux menu item and type a paramater, for example, i18n=de_DE to start using deutsche language. You need to know your locale alias to start using your favorite language. This method will use gettext to change the default language and only few applications will continue using english."

Most popular web browsers among Fedora users

Google Chrome is the most popular browser in the world. It is so popular that some call it a new Internet Explorer. But that’s based on global stats. In Red Hat, I’m responsible for web browsers, so I wondered what are the most popular web browsers among Fedora users. So I asked through Fedora accounts on Facebook and Google+: “Which browser do you use the most in Fedora?” Read more

Life in a Post-Container World and Why Linux Will Play a Diminished Role

Containers have actually been with us since the late 1990s, but they are not the end of the story. The real transformation will come with a “serverless” future that will completely overturn the ops ecosystem. Companies will go out of business, new ones will spring to life, and thousands of people will have fundamental changes to their jobs. The shift to a serverless future is much bigger than your normal hype cycle — I believe the current container hoopla is a foreshock preceding a 9.0 quake. Read more

FFmpeg's Leader Resigns, Hopes To Make Libav Developers Come Back

Michael Niedermayer, the leader of the FFmpeg project for the past eleven years, has made a surprise announcement today: he's resigning as its leader.

30 Sys Admins to Follow on SysAdmin Day

Systems administrators: They keep our high-tech world up and running. From capacity planning, to 3 a.m. phone calls, to retiring that 10-year-old server that uses more power than your whole house, sys admins do it all. Open source communities would not be able to thrive without the networks, services, and tools that allow for communication and collaboration, and sys admins are the ones who work thanklessly year-round to keep them going. July 31 is System Administrator Appreciation Day, a day for all of us to express our undying gratitude for sys admins. Sure, you could buy your favorite sys admin cake and ice cream, or perhaps a nice gift card. You could even go as far as not breaking the server for just one day. You also can follow these 30 sys admins. Read more
