  • Debian Is Still Working To Land ZFS On Linux Support

    Neil McGovern has written a blog post today explaining that work is still ongoing for landing ZFS support in Debian. This ZFS file-system support will be added to Debian's contrib repository and will be a source-only, DKMS module. In other words, due to licensing issues, they will not be patching their default kernel package or the like, but rather will distribute it as a source package that will then build locally on the user's system against their installed kernel version.

  • On ZFS in Debian

    I’m currently over at FOSDEM, and have been asked by a couple of people about the state of ZFS and Debian. So, I thought I’d give a quick post to explain what Debian’s current plan is (which has come together with a lot of discussion with the FTP Masters and others around what we should do).

  • Progress report on hardened1-linux-amd64, a potential Debian port with PIE, ASAN, UBSAN and more

    Last year I started the bootstrapping during the holidays and I now have the prototype in the form of cross built packages which can be installed next to amd64 packages using multiarch.

Canonical Needs Your Help to Figure Out a Direction for Ubuntu's Mir/Wayland

That's right, Canonical still has a team of developers working on the Mir display server, despite the Unity 8 development being dropped, and it looks like it's going into a different direction this time. The latest work by done Mir's devs involves basic Wayland support implementation, including mouse and keyboard inputs. Their Wayland Conformance Suite (wlcs) implementation also allow client to connect to the server, as well as to create windows and draw into them, but there's a lot of work to be done before they achieve full Wayland support for Mir, which involves adding essential functions like copy and paste or drag and drop.

openSUSE Tumbleweed Operating System Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.14 LTS

Linux kernel 4.14 LTS is the latest and greatest kernel for GNU/Linux distributions, and now that it's ready for mass deployments, it will arrive in the software repositories of more distros, and Tumbleweed users are among the first to get it as OpenSuSE Project's Douglas DeMaio reports today. "The past week brought new features to openSUSE Tumbleweed with a snapshot that included Linux kernel 4.14," said DeMaio. "New features like HDMI Consumer Electronics Control support for Raspberry Pi and the merging of Heterogeneous Memory Management to the mainline this long-term support kernel are promising."
