Linux Format 165 On Sale Today - Raspberry Pi Supercharged

Filed under
Linux

Supercharge your Raspberry Pi. It's project awesome!

Take control of your telly, your devices that run embedded Linux and more, as we uncover the potential of the Raspberry Pi. With a bit of patience, a soldering iron and a couple of circuit boards, you can even use one to control an LED display to light up your favourite winter-based religious festival.

Also in the mag you can delve in to the labyrinth of patents to get some background on how it all relates to free software, take your first steps with the Django web development framework and create a simple Dropbox clone that you can use without fear the The Man is snooping on your stuff. We look at Bitcoin, we make a mess with Inkscape, and we scratck our heads and wonder why the excellent Ubuntu has taken such a nosedive with its most recent release.

On the DVD we’ve got the latest-and-greatest version of Slackware, the completely free (as in speech and as in beer) Trisquel, the tiny Core Plus and the lightweight AntiX.

Debian and Derivatives: SnowCamp, Debian Gitlab, Debian/TeX Live, Snap Apps

  • Report from Debian SnowCamp: day 3
    Thanks to Valhalla and other members of LIFO, a bunch of fine Debian folks have convened in Laveno, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, for a nice weekend of relaxing and sprinting on various topics, a SnowCamp.
  • Report from SnowCamp #1
    As Nicolas already reported, a bunch of Debian folk gathered in the North of Italy for a long weekend of work and socialisation.
  • Debian Gitlab (salsa.debian.org) tricks
  • Debian/TeX Live 2017.20180225-1
    To my big surprise, the big rework didn’t create any havoc at all, not one bug report regarding the change. That is good. OTOH, I took some time off due to various surprising (and sometimes disturbing) things that have happened in the last month, so the next release took a bit longer than expected.
  • Ubuntu Software Will Soon Let You Install Beta, Bleeding Edge Snap Apps
    No, not TV channels, or the sort the that ferries goods between countries, but development channels, e.g, beta, bleeding edge, stable, etc. Snap developers are able to distribute different versions of their app over “channels”, and have for almost as long as Snappy has been around in fact.
