CentOS Clone OpenNode Aims to Simplify KVM and OpenVZ

Filed under
Linux

Active Systems has released the first public beta of OpenNode, a CentOS based distro that is designed to make it easier to run virtual machines using KVM or OpenVZ.

In addition to installing a minimal CentOS setup with support for OpenVZ and KVM out of the box, OpenNode provides a set of utilities to download pre-made OpenVZ templates or run the virsh shell to set up KVM. The project only provides OpenVZ templates at the moment, but KVM templates are in progress.

I'm particularly interested in the OpenVZ support with OpenNode. OpenVZ doesn't get the same amount of attention from the community as KVM, which is a shame. The project is fairly mature and and offers really good performance and decent management tools. OpenVZ is the basis for Parallels' proprietary Virtuozzo, which has some really well-designed management tools.

Android Users: To Avoid Malware, Try the F-Droid App Store

In the early days of Android, co-founder Andy Rubin set the stage for the fledgling mobile operating system. Android’s mission was to create smarter mobile devices, ones that were more aware of their owner’s behavior and location.“If people are smart,” Rubin told Business Week in 2003, “that information starts getting aggregated into consumer products.” A decade and a half later, that goal has become a reality: Android-powered gadgets are in the hands of billions and are loaded with software shipped by Google, the world’s largest ad broker.Android Users: To Avoid Malware, Try the F-Droid App Store Read more

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.2.3 MR

LibreELEC 8.2.3 is released to change our embedded pastebin provider from sprunge.us (RIP) to ix.io (working) so users can continue to submit logs to the forums through a URL without copy/pasting text or direct uploading log files. This is our preferred way to receive and read your log files so if you are not familiar with using the paste function please read this wiki article to find out how. The 8.2.3 release also solves an issue with continuity errors on USB DVB adaptors that has been troubling some 8.2 users for some time; kudos to user @jahutchi for tracking down the problem kernel commit. We also address a long-running crashing issue with Intel BayTrail hardware that needed some users to force max_cstate in kernel boot parameters, and for bonus credit users with an Intel NUC equipped with an LED can fiddle with the colours, as we backported the LED driver from our master branch.
