Lessons Learned, Not Always Easy

I've spent most of my time recently working on two or three of my new (or not so) sub-netbook systems, with surprising results. This information might be useful to others who are looking at such systems:

HP Pavilion dm1-4010ez: This is the newest of the lot, and it really is a very nice system. It loaded and ran flawlessly with every Linux distribution I tried on it, including openSuSE 12.1, Fedora 16, Linux Mint 12 (with Cinnamon), Ubuntu 11.10, Linux Mint Debian 2101109 Gnome, PCLinuxOS 2011.09 and probably one or two others that slip my mind right now. It really was a pleasure to use - so much so that a friend who needed a replacement for a very old ASUS netbook I had set up several years ago ended up taking this one from me. Ah well...

  • 10 years of dgplug summer training
    In 2017 dgplug summer training will be happening for the 10th time. Let me tell you honestly, I had no clue that we will reach here when I started this back in 2008. The community gathered together, and we somehow managed to continue. In case, you do not know about this training, dgplug summer training is a 3 months long online IRC based course where we help people to become contributors to upstream projects. The sessions start around 6:30PM IST, and continues till 9PM (or sometimes till very late at night) for 3 months. You can read the logs of the sessions here.
  • 6 3D printing applications you can install on Fedora 25
    Do you have an interest in the 3D printing space but don’t know which 3D printing application will work on your favorite Linux distribution? You’re in luck, because in this article, you learn about 6 of such applications that you can install on Fedora 25 and other Linux distributions, like Ubuntu 16.10 and debian 8. Most of these you can install by selecting the 3D printing package when using the DVD or netinstall ISO image to install Fedora 25, but the rest you have to install individually.
  • FUDCon APAC Phnom Penh 2016
    FUDCon 2016, that was for me first of all a lot of work especially after the change of the venue in nearly last minute. Instead of ITC BarCamp happened this year at Norton University, what turned out not to be a good choice. A new hotel had to be found, not an easy task as on this side of the river are not many yet.

Security News

  • Security advisories for Friday
  • Oh, the security!
    This security concern has only raised because of using 3rd party parsers (well, in the case of the GStreamer vulnerability in question, decoders, why a parsing facility like GstDiscoverer triggers decoding is another question worth asking), and this parsing of content happens in exactly one place in your common setup: tracker-extract.
  • Patch for CVE-2016-8655 Issue Now Available for CloudLinux OS 7 KernelCare Users
    Just the other day we reported on the general availability of a kernel update for the shared hosting-oriented CloudLinux OS 7 operating system, and today a new patch is available for those running KernelCare. If you're not familiar with KernelCare, it's a commercial kernel live patching technology developed and provided by CloudLinux of its CloudLinux OS users. We've discussed CloudLinux's KernelCare in a previous report if you're curious to test drive it.
