Only three days after announcing the release of the third maintenance update to the Linux 4.9 kernel series, renowned kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman is now informing us about the availability of Linux kernel 4.9.4.
If you were afraid that your patch did not land in Linux 4.9, which is currently the most advanced stable kernel branch available for GNU/Linux distributions, or if you thought that your device hasn't yet received the right drivers, think again, because Linux kernel 4.9.4 is full of goodies. Yes, again, but this time the patch is a little smaller and fixes a total of 59 files, with 507 insertions and 205 deletions.
I'm still running more benchmarks in investigating the Core i5 7600K Linux performance and with even its graphics performance being slower than Skylake. I fired up Clear Linux on this Kaby Lake system this weekend and it's indeed faster than Ubuntu, though there still is some sort of fundamental issue at play with these new CPUs on Linux. But what is clear is that there are cases where the P-State CPU frequency scaling driver does perform very poorly over the mature, generic CPUFreq scaling driver.
The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration, has announced the program for Open Source Leadership Summit, scheduled to take place on February 14-16 in Lake Tahoe, CA.
The use of open source software in the Asia-Pacific region is on its way up, with more than half of those surveyed in a new study by Red Hat already implementing or embracing the technology.
At the same time, however, the research suggests that concerns around the security of open source software remains, despite its rising popularity among enterprises, with 56 per cent of respondents viewing open source security as a potential risk if not a major concern.
A new survey from Forrester Consulting on behalf of Red Hat has revealed IT decision makers in Australia are focusing on three IT and business priorities in the next 12 months, as they look to successfully compete in the ‘age of the customer’.
The study, Open Source Drives Digital Innovation, researched 455 CIOs and senior IT decision-makers from nine countries in Asia Pacific, including 51 from Australia.
The results of a new study about the use of open source in digital innovation in the Asia–Pacific region have been released by Red Hat.
Research for the ‘Open Source Drives Digital Innovation’ study was carried out by Forrester Consulting and surveyed 455 CIOs and senior IT decision-makers from nine countries.
It found that around half of the respondents from Australia have either implemented or plan to expand open source.
The number of open source applications and tools that are available on today’s popular operating systems is simply mind-blowing. They come in all forms. Small scripts and console tools that can be easily integrated into large projects, feature-rich applications that offer everything a complete solution, well designed tools, games that encourage real participation, and eye catching candy.
Open source software holds many compelling advantages over proprietary software. Open source improves the quality of the code, keeps costs down, encourages innovation and collaboration, combined with superior security, freedom, flexibility, interoperability, business agility, and much more.
The wait is almost over, and you'll finally be able to enjoy a much modern, improved, and full of new technologies Kodi media center on your PC or HTPC device, be it an Apple TV or Raspberry Pi.
Martijn Kaijser announced the third Release Candidate (RC) development version for the Kodi 17.0 "Krypton" media center, and it looks to us like these pre-releases are getting smaller by the day, the RC3 build including only seven changes listed on the release notes attached to the official announcement.
Raspberry Pi 1 and Zero: Hands on with Manjaro ARM and PiCore Linux
In the previous two posts I wrote about SUSE Linux and Fedora/Manjaro ARM/Ubuntu MATE for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. The results were mixed, at best.
This time I'm taking on even more of a challenge because I'm going to be looking at the original Raspberry Pi Model B and B+, and the Raspberry Pi Zero. These models all have much more limited CPU power and memory than the Pi 2 and 3, so it will be interesting to see what can be done with them.
"InDev 24 The Upgrade Update" is now live and it brings, as the title might suggest plenty of building upgrades for your villages. This makes the progression of your village feeling a little more worthwhile, as you upgrade them in stages.
It has the same problem a lot of online indie games have: no one is playing it. The all-time peak users online was 112 people. In the last 24 hours a pitiful 5 people was the peak users online which shows how dead it is.
As for other issues: When it asked me to pick a control configuration, I clicked an option and the screen just wouldn't go away. I had to restart the game to get rid of it. It also gave me a black screen when I tried to do the AI tutorial mission.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation this morning announced the Compute Module 3 (CM3) as the successor to their original Compute Module.
The Raspberry Pi Compute Module remains targeted as a offering for those manufacturing customized products based upon the Raspberry Pi. The Compute Module uses a DDR2 SO-DIMM interface and makes it easy and low-cost to integrate within custom hardware designs.
If you have been wanting one, I have good news. We here at BetaNews are giving away the best version -- the Raspberry Pi 3. We aren't stopping there, however, as we are also including a very nice aluminum case -- including heatsinks for overclocking. It is the exact Raspberry Pi 3 and case as seen in the video above. In other words, the case has already been installed by yours truly. Want to enter to win? There are multiple ways to enter. Just click the link below!
