Lin-X Linux 1.1

Filed under
Linux

Lin-X is a remastered version of Ubuntu designed to look and feel like Mac OS X. Lin-X has turned the cool Apple logo on its head a bit by putting in a skull and crossed swords. Surely an act of blatant defiance of Steve Jobs and his lawyers. We’ll see if anybody at Apple notices this amusing act of rebellion.

What’s New In This Release

I looked around for details on what was new in this release but since the developer site is offline at this point, this brief bit of text was all I could uncover.

· Boot and system sounds do not work with the sounds window disabled
· This will be fixed (hopefully ;p) with the next release. However we apoligize for the inconvienence.

If you know more details about what was updated please post them in the comments.

Requirements & Installation

Since the Lin-X site is not available I could not find exact install requirements. But since it’s based on Ubuntu you should simply bear the Ubuntu install requirements in mind. I had a few problems with the install which I’ve detailed in the problems section. Suffice to say that once you actually get the install going it’s about the same as installing any other Ubuntu-based distribution which means that it’s not difficult.

University students create award-winning open source projects

In my short time working for Clarkson University, I've realized what a huge impact this small university is making on the open source world. Our 4,300 student-strong science and technology-focused institution, located just south of the Canadian border in Potsdam, New York, hosts the Clarkson Open Source Institute (COSI), dedicated to promoting open source software and providing equipment and support for student projects. While many universities offer opportunities for students to get involved in open source projects, it's rare to have an entire institute dedicated to promoting open source development. COSI is part of Clarkson's Applied Computer Science Labs within the computer science department. It, along with the Internet Teaching Lab and the Virtual Reality Lab, is run by students (supported by faculty advisers), allowing them to gain experience in managing both facilities and projects while still undergraduates.

Linux 4.17-rc2

So rc2 is out, and things look fairly normal. The diff looks a bit unusual, with the tools subdirectory dominating, with 30%+ of the whole diff. Mostly perf and test scripts. But if you ignore that, the rest looks fairly usual. Arch updates (s390 and x86 dominate) and drivers (networking, gpu, HID, mmc, misc) are the bulk of it, with misc other changes all over (filesystems, core kernel, networking, docs). We've still got some known fallout from the merge window, but it shouldn't affect most normal configurations, so go out and test. Linus Read more Also: Upstream Linux support for new NXP i.MX8
