  • Deepin 15 RC Is Out, Continues To Focus On Simple & Clean Experience

    The release candidate is out on Christmas Eve for Deepin 15, a Linux distribution that continues to strive for a simple and clean experience that makes it easy for all users.

    Deepin 15 is adding new system sound effects, is based on the latest Sid packages, Qt is powering the desktop to replace their previous HTML5+WebKit usage, Mutter is used as the window manager, the Linux 4.2 kernel is used, systemd is used rather than Upstart, Bash is now the default shell rather than Zsh, GCC 5.3.1 is the base compiler, there is lower memory use, and many other changes. It's interesting they switched from an Ubuntu based back to a Debian Sid upstream, likewise, the desktop work they're now doing in Qt is interesting. Details and screenshots of their former HTML5 desktop can be found via this article from last year.

  • Deepin switches to Debian Sid

    Distribution that I feel fond of their work on UX for Linux ecosystem has switched from Ubuntu to Debian. So now pabs will probably invite them to our Derivate Census and they start packaging their stack into Debian directly.

  • A Submission to the Productivity Commission Inquiry on the Right to Repair

    Executive Summary: The Productivity Commission is to be congratulated for producing a comprehensive discussion paper on the complex and tangled topic of the right to repair. Taking an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to the issue, the Productivity Commission shows a strong understanding that the topic of the right to repair is a multifaceted policy issue. Its draft report covers the fields of consumer law, competition policy, intellectual property, product stewardship, and environmental law. The Productivity Commission displays a great comparative awareness of developments in other jurisdictions in respect of the right to repair. The policy body is also sensitive to the international dimensions of the right to repair – particularly in light of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Productivity Commission puts forward a compelling package of recommendations, which will be useful in achieving law reform in respect of the right to repair in Australia.

  • Celebrating our brand, people and culture during We Are Red Hat Week [Ed: Between the lines one can read that yet another executive quit Red Hat; I've lost count of them and no doubt IBM is quickly destroying Red Hat, driving away if not laying off key workers; those who can, already leave or job-hunt because IBM is a dying company. DeLisa Alexander left the firm this year, not long after the IBM takeover and 20 years after joining. I think it’s a big deal when your “Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer” leaves way before retirement age and months before Jim AllowHurst leaves too. What do they know?]

    When I joined as chief people officer in April of this year, I had a feeling that Red Hat was going to be the right place for me because of the culture and our values. The last seven months have proven that intuition correct. Red Hatters not only welcomed me, but they embraced me and my ideas, despite coming from outside the company, and I’ve had incredible opportunities to see our open culture in action. We talk about culture a lot. It’s become a bit of a buzz word around the industry, but too often it refers to casual dress codes, free candy and ping pong tables. But culture is so much more than that. At Red Hat, it’s about how we work, how we treat each other, how we develop ideas, and having a shared passion and purpose. That’s what makes Red Hat unique. (We do have plenty of fun too!)

  • Innovating Freely with Kubernetes

    The opportunity and impetus to innovate have never been greater. Around the world, enterprises understand their future success will hinge on their ability to differentiate through digital innovation. As a result, technology leaders are now in a race to put differentiated applications into production, and deploy them in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. In this recent article, I discussed the factors organisations need to consider in building a robust hybrid and multi-cloud strategy. In another article, we looked at how Kubernetes fosters innovation across hybrid, multi-cloud and edge environments and the capabilities a Kubernetes platform needs to have to address the requirements of both development and operations teams. Now let’s talk about how organisations can innovate freely with Kubernetes. Kubernetes has quickly become a foundational technology because it is able to abstract the complexity surrounding hybrid and multi-cloud environments and enables digital innovation.

  • Getting to know Fuchsia, Google's open-source operating system

    Fuchsia is not a Linux-based OS.

    This means Fuchsia doesn’t use Linux as its . Instead, it uses a new kernel (specifically, a ) called

    . Generally, microkernels tend to follow the principle of minimality, but although Zircon applies many of the concepts popularized by microkernels, it does not strive to be minimal. Fuchsia’s microkernel architecture helps to reduce the amount of trusted code running in the system.

    Here’s a simple comparison between general OS kernel services and Zircon kernel services: [...]

  • Iron Gate tease the upcoming Mistlands update for Valheim, plus updates for Mountains | GamingOnLinux

    With the Hearth & Home update now behind them, Iron Gate are focusing on the next major biome update for Valheim with the Mistlands and some smaller updates too. Hearth & Home took quite some time to be released since they're still quite a small team, although it was received positively once it was out as it added plenty to build and the combat was nicely overhauled to be a lot more dynamic.

  • Create and Manage KVM Virtual Machines via Command Line

    KVM (Kernel based Virtual Machine) is an opensource virtualization technology built for Linux machines. It comprises a kernel module – kvm.ko which provides the core virtualization platform and a processor-specific module ( kvm-intel.ko for Intel processors or kvm-amd.ko for AMD processors ). There are two ways of creating virtual machines using KVM. You can leverage the virt-manager tool which is an X11 server that provides a GUI interface for creating virtual machines. Additionally, you can use the command line to create a virtual machine by defining various parameters associated with the virtual machine you want to deploy.

  • How to Install SVN on RHEL-Based Linux Distributions

    Written in C programming language, Apache Subversion, colloquially abbreviated as SVN, is a free and open-source versioning control system that keeps track of historical versions of files and directories. Simply put, SVN is simply a version tracker that allows users to send changes made to files to a repository that tracks who made the changes in each file. The repository is similar to a file server. The difference is that it tracks changes and allows you to recover older versions of code or probe the history of the file changes.

  • How to Sync Files in Two-Way Using Osync Script in Linux

    You might ask yourself, why do I need a two-way/bidirectional file synchronization solution? [...] This stateful synchronizer acts as a rsync wrapper. Osync is attributed as stateful because it is not obligated to monitor the targeted files for changes. This attribute also makes it agentless. Between two runs, osync will compare replica file lists. These runs can be local-to-local or local-to-remote. The local-to-local replication run takes approximately 2 seconds whereas the local-to-remote replication run takes approximately 7 seconds.

  • don’t do clever things in configure scripts – Ariadne's Space

    Recently, a new version of ncurses was released and pushed to Alpine. The maintainer of ncurses in Alpine successfully built it on his machine, so he pushed it to the builders, expecting it to build fine on them. Of course, it promptly failed to build from source on the builders, because make install did not install the pkg-config .pc files to the right location. You might think, what a weird regression, and you’d be right. After all, pkg-config files are usually just installed to $libdir/pkgconfig in any sort of autotools-based build system. Indeed, in the past, this is what ncurses did as well.

Spellchecking with QML

QML is a nice technology but it sometimes feels that some parts of KDE Frameworks aren’t neatly integrated with it. For example, until recently KNotification didn’t have QML bindings, which was the same for KSyntaxHighlighting. Thankfully Volker Krause took care of both. Another part of the often-used KDE Frameworks but had missing QML bindings was Sonnet. Sonnet is a very nice KDE framework powering KDE text areas with spell checking. The good news, Sonnet will, in the next KF5 release, supports QML apps too! Read more
