Gentoo Linux 12 review

Filed under
Gentoo

To the novice user, moving across from Windows to Linux for the first time, the desktop screen of Gentoo Linux will have a more familiar feel than most other versions of the platform.

Appreciating that many Linux distros adopt a similar approach, Gentoo mirrors as closely as it is legal, the initial set-up of a Windows Vista-esque installation; with a standard taskbar, familiar icons, and everything pretty much ready to go. It’s only on closer inspection, things appear different. The default installed icons on the desktop invite you to install Adobe Flash, or launch either a Bug Tracker of Supper Forums. It’s with these, perhaps, that the novice’s hopes may crumble just a little.

COM and Pico-ITX dev kit run Linux on dual-core Cortex-A7

iWave has launched a rugged, SODIMM-style COM and Pico-ITX form factor carrier board that run Linux on the Renesas dual-core, Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E SoC. In January, iWave launched the iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven computer-on-module, built around the dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A15 based Renesas RZ/G1M and RZ/G1N SoCs. Now the company has followed up with a 67.6 x 37mm, SODIMM form factor “iW-RainboW-G22M-SM” COM that runs Linux 3.10.31 on the dual-core Cortex-A7 based RZ/G1E SoC from the same RZ/G series SoCs.
