Like dd, dd_rescue does copy data from one file or block device to another.dd_rescue is a tool to help you to save data from crashed partition. It tries to read and if it fails, it will go on with the next sectors where tools like dd will fail.

Filed under
HowTos

If your GPG private key becomes compromised, you need to revoke it to warn others not to trust future signatures or encrypt data to your public key. However, by the time a key compromise happens, you might not have your GPG key available, such as if it resided on hardware stolen from you, or the attacker removed it after accessing it. This article shows you how to generate and preserve a revocation certificate now, before you actually need it.

This article is about how to use the OpenOffice.org templates, in particular the WorldLabel templates, to print the labels you need. It shows how to download them, install them, use them as they are, and how to customize them with graphics and other features.

Linux and automotive: reaching a tipping point

Filed under
Linux

Linux has always been suspect when it comes to automotive applications.

The general belief was that safety-critical automotive applications required a deterministic, real-time operating system. Linux just didn't cut it for telematics or under-the-hood applications. OEMs relied on proprietary OS companies for their solutions.

Daniel Lyons (Forbes) vendetta against Richard Stallman

Filed under

I just read this article in Frobes.com, the article intentionally tries to portray Richard Stallman and te FSF, in a negative light. This became clear to me in the first few paragraphs when the author refers to Stallman and the FSF as “He and a band of anarchist acolytes”. At another point it says:

Filed under
HowTos

Cron is one of those little programs that can change the world. It’s a scheduling progam, meaning that you can give it instructions such as ‘at 10:45am on every Monday run this program’ and it will faithfully wait until the appointed time to do what you asked it. Why is this useful?

Software

    The Linux stretch goal was $1.1 million and it's pleasing to see it hit the goal, so we won't miss out now. I am hoping they don't let anyone down, as they have shown they can do it already by providing the demo. There should be no reason to see a delay with Linux now.

    The majority of NAS devices supported in Debian are based on Debian's Kirkwood platform. This platform is quite dated now and can only run Debian's armel port. Debian now supports the Seagate Personal Cloud and Seagate NAS devices. They are based on Marvell's Armada 370, a platform which can run Debian's armhf port. Unfortunately, even the Armada 370 is a bit dated now, so I would not recommend these devices for new purchases. If you have one already, however, you now have the option to run native Debian.
