Linux

Lynn Bender of geekaustin.com has announced that he is beginning preparations for Linux Against Poverty 2010. I was pleasantly surprised to find that 25 people volunteered for the event within an hour of the announcement.

That is roughly half of the geek/tech workforce we were graciously provided during the last event. Lynn has some fairly spectacular options open to him for this years event but until they are locked down, I've been asked not to be too specific. The event is scheduled for the 10th of May this year. If you wish to participate in LAP this go-around, please leave your comments here or email me helios at fixedbylinux dott Komm. We'll get you slotted into a place where you feel you can do the most good.

There is also a google group for installers and hardware folks if you are interested in joining.

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more

Calamares Release and Adoption

  • Calamares 3.0 Universal Linux Installer Released, Drops Support for KPMcore 2
    Calamares, the open-source distribution-independent system installer, which is used by many GNU/Linux distributions, including the popular KaOS, Netrunner, Chakra GNU/Linux, and recently KDE Neon, was updated today to version 3.0. Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon. It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
