Kernel Log: Coming in 3.10 (Part 1)

Filed under
Linux

Last weekend, Linus Torvalds released the fourth pre-release version of Linux 3.10. Technical problems meant that it was initially only available via the git source code management system, though Torvalds notes in the email announcing the release that he considers git to be the easiest way of getting hold of it anyway. Linux 3.10-rc4 is now also available as a source code archive via kernel.org.

As usual, Torvalds and his fellow developers merged all of the major changes for the 3.10 kernel in the two weeks following the release of version 3.9. Linux 3.10 thus now finds itself in the stabilisation phase, where large-scale changes are undertaken only in exceptional cases. Therefore, we are now able to offer a fuller overview of the most important changes to be anticipated in the 3.10 kernel, which is due for release in late June/early July. We will be presenting a series of articles looking at various areas of the kernel.

The series opens with a description of new features relating to network support. Over the next few weeks, further articles will deal with storage technology, filesystems, graphics drivers, kernel infrastructure, processor/platform support and drivers for other hardware.

Edubuntu Vs UberStudent: Return To College With The Best Linux Distro

Importantly, there are a handful of programs that are on Edubuntu that UberStudent doesn’t have, such as KAlgebra, Kazium, KGeography, and Marble. Instead, UberStudent has a smaller collection of applications but it does include some useful items when it comes to writing papers that Edubuntu does not have. So ultimately, Edubuntu includes more programs that are information-heavy, while UberStudent includes more tools that can aid students in their studies but doesn’t directly give them any sort of information.

Zotac Nvidia Jetson TK1 review

The Jetson TK1, Nvidia’s first development board to be marketed at the general public, has taken a circuitous route to our shores. Unveiled at the company’s Graphics Technology Conference earlier this year, the board launched in the US at a headline-grabbing price of $192 but its international release was hampered by export regulations. Zotac, already an Nvidia partner for its graphics hardware, volunteered to sort things out and has partnered with Maplin to bring the board to the UK. In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
