Maintaining Out of Tree Drivers

Filed under
Linux

kernelTRAP: I'm trying to keep some external drivers up to date with the kernel, and the first two weeks after the release is the worst time for me. There is no way to distinguish the current git kernel from the latest release. It's only after rc1 is released that I can use the preprocessor to check LINUX_VERSION_CODE.

Rudd-O: VMware (Workstation or Player) under Linux tends to stutter and produce choppy audio when running a Windows XP virtual machine. Here’s what I did to kill those problems (yes, I can even use Steinberg Nuendo now!):

Linux

PCWorld: One thing is clear with new Linux distros such as Ubuntu's just-released "Gutsy Gibbon", or version 7.10, and openSUSE's 10.3, nipping at Windows' and Mac OS X's heels: The desktop OS is at a crossroads.

Beware: Major problems with add-ons caused by Firefox 2.0.0.8 update

Filed under
Moz/FF

iTWire: For the past few years, I have found the Firefox browser update process to work pretty much flawlessly. But not with today's automatic update to version 2.0.0.8 (20 October 2007). Not a single one of the installed extensions that I have come to rely on are working, and I'm very annoyed. And it seems that I'm not the only one affected.

Ubuntu 7.10 Upgrade First Impressions

Gutsy is a definite step in the right direction with some welcome new features. It’s just a shame my upgrade didn’t go as smoothly as I wanted. Will I ever get desktop effects working?

Collaboration: Best Reason for Government Open Source?

Filed under
OSS

Linux Today: There seems to be a disconnect between what users want for their computing needs, and what vendors think they want. A glaring example of this was made apparent to me at the Government Open Source Conference (GOSCON) earlier this week.

GPLv3 adoption on track, experts say

Filed under
OSS

linux.com: How is the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) being received four months after its official release? Not well, if you believe the Evans Data survey released on September 25. However, those who concern themselves with licensing issues at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and at Palamida paint a different picture.

HowTos

Raiden's Realm: For anybody who's ever used a computer, one of the things that many people find useful is keyboard shortcuts. In some cases they can allow you to do certain tasks much faster than you could with a mouse and thus they tend to be preferred by many for that exact reason.

Why don’t more people use Debian?

Filed under
Linux

tuxtoday: Over the last couple of weeks I’ve caught myself wondering why there are so many “easy-to-use” Debian-based distros. I used to think of Debian as the distro that was way up there, a long long way to go, in terms of user-friendlyness. I didn’t think that I was going to be able to use Debian. It just seemed to hard.

Linux Will Be Worth $1 Billion In First 100 Days of 2009

Filed under
Linux

Charles Babcock: What's Linux worth? The question has been a favorite of technology groups and cocktail party conversations ever since a character named Jeff V. Merkey offered $50,000 for a copy of Linux. The offer was a ploy. Merkey wanted it under the BSD license, which would have undermined the terms of the GPL. So he didn't get it. But we know, at least, that $50,000 proved to be a low bid.

Desktop GNU/Linux/Chromebook

  • A Minimal Chrome OS Theme for Tint2
    I used to (and sort-of-still-do, I guess) run a sister site focused on Google Chrome, Chromecast and Chromebooks, i.e. the Chrome ecosystem. As such I am a fan of Chromebooks and Chrome OS, a Linux-based distribution based on Gentoo. The appearance of Chrome OS has waxed and waned in sync with Google’s ambitions and positioning for the OS, going form hyper-minimal to a full desktop clone (with the desktop-y Chrome Apps platform) through to a Material Design inspired Android + Chrome hybrid today.
