Linux 4.6 Kernel

  • More USB 3.1 Work Heading To Linux 4.6 Kernel
  • CGroup Namespaces Support Set For Linux 4.6 Kernel

    Here is another big feature coming for the Linux 4.6 kernel.

    Following the cgroup pull request for the Linux 4.6 merge window, Tejun Heo sent in a second pull request and it goes ahead to provide cgroup namespaces support for the kernel.

  • F2FS File-System Being Further Enhanced With Linux 4.6

    While F2FS still doesn't seem to have been utilized yet by any large, wide-scale deployments as the flash file-system of choice, this Linux file-system continues to mature.

    Jaegeuk Kim sent out the pull request this week for updating the Flash-Friendly File-System for Linux 4.6. His pull request needs to be re-submitted to a mistake he made that upset Torvalds, but it gives us a look at the features that are coming for this file-system in the next Linux kernel release.

  • The Linux Migration: April 2017 Progress Report
    In December 2016, I kicked off a migration to Linux (from OS X) as my primary laptop OS. In the nearly 4 months since the initial progress report, I’ve published a series of articles providing updates on things like which Linux distribution I selected, how I’m handling running VMs on my Linux laptop, and integration with corporate collaboration systems (here, here, and here). I thought that these “along the way” posts would be sufficient to keep readers informed, but I’ve had a couple of requests in the last week about how the migration is going. This post will help answer that question by summarizing what’s happened so far. Let me start by saying that I am actively using a Linux-powered laptop as my primary laptop right now, and I have been doing so since early February. All the posts I’ve published so far have been updates of how things are going “in production,” so to speak. The following sections describe my current, active environment.

Lumina Desktop Gets lumina-mediaplayer

  • 1.3.0 Development Preview: lumina-mediaplayer
  • Lumina Desktop Gets Its Own Media Player
    There's now yet another open-source media player, but this time focused on the BSD-focused Qt-powered Lumina Desktop Environment. Lumina Media Player is one of the new additions for the upcoming Lumina 1.3. Lumina Media Player's UI is quite simple so far and allows playing of local audio/video files along with basic audio streaming -- currently implemented for Pandora.
