Fedora: The Latest

Filed under
Red Hat
  • Testing Fedora Cloud image with systemd-networkd

    One of the change proposal I have submitted for Fedora 23 is about having systemd-netowrkd for network configuration. You can find the change page here. Instead of carrying the old network-scripts, we wanted to move to networkd, which is a part of systemd. Couple of the notable benefits are about how it will help us to keep the image size sane by not bringing in any external dependencies, and also about similarity between many different distribution based cloud images from users’ point of view. You can look into the discussions on the Talk page, and the trac ticket.

They’re called WuLUG, shorthand for Wichita State University Linux Users Group.

And although they have the university in their name, they stress that they’re open to anyone who uses or is curious about Linux, a free computer operating system that started as a college project 24 years ago and has been built upon by countless volunteer programmers around the globe ever since.

    After introducing GNOME To Do, it finished a very important cycle of development and we had a great set of fresh features for 3.17.4 release. Check them out:

  • Another digest from Polariland

    Polari 3.17.4 is around the corner. For this release, I have worked with Florian to get my work towards a better initial setup experience merged. As can be seen below the design has changed a bit too.

Microsoft

Is there a market or even a need for Android PCs?

Filed under
Android

As of this writing, the Remix Mini Kickstarter stands at almost $600,000. That's more than 10 times their $50,000 goal. And that's barely a week since it launched, with 38 days left before the campaign ends. With a little over 9,000 backers, the Kickstarter success seems to be sending a message. Forget Android TV or Android Auto or maybe even Android Wear. An Android PC is the next best thing. Or is it? How has personal computing changed over the past years since Android came on the scene and is an Android PC really a logical evolution of the platform?

Ubik's quest to build your dream Android phone starts with the Uno

Filed under
Android

This is the Ubik Uno, another addition to the growing list of 5.5-inch Android smartphones being sold for an attractive price. The device launched on Kickstarter today, and early backers can get in for $280 — not bad for an unlocked phone that the company claims rivals big-name flagships. The idea of "crowdfunded smartphone" is something no company has been able to nail down. Ubik is giving it a shot, and is dreaming up even bigger ambitions for what's next.

diff -u: What's New in Kernel Development

Filed under
Development
Linux

There's a slow effort underway to allow virtually any part of the kernel to be extracted into its own shared library, thus enabling users to use any alternative subsystem they please. There's a long history of this, going back to the debate between micro-kernels and monolithic kernels. Even Linus Torvalds, the proponent of the monolithic kernel, believes it's better to abstract features out of the kernel, so long as it can be done without sacrificing speed, stability and other core requirements.

Why I created Open Source Protocol

Filed under
OSS

I recently launched the Open Source Protocol (OS Protocol), a standard that can be used to link to where the code for a website is hosted. The protocol is fairly simple—all it involves is metatags, and most websites will only need two or three lines of code to be compliant.

OS Protocol is based on Facebook's Open Graph Protocol (OGP) and Twitter's Card protocol. Both of these use metatags in an HTML document's header to help their crawlers get metadata about a website; the site name, picture, a description. What I envision is a different sort of crawler that can identify the source of a page.
