Today marks the surprise release of Enlightenment 0.20! The E20 development cycle has taken more than a year and saw more than 1,890 patches merged.
The prominent features of Enlightenment 0.20 include full Wayland support, new screen management infrastructure and dialogs, new audio mixer infrastructure, internal widgets being replaced with Elementary, improved FreeBSD support, and a new Geolocation module.
The Turris Omnia is different from most other routers in a number of ways. The biggest — and coolest — is that it ships with an OpenWrt-based OS that lets you hack it to do just about anything you could do with a desktop Linux system. Use the integrated virtual server for anything you want, like an OwnCloud or Tonido instance or an encrypted chat host.
Follow-up tests on this MacBook Air are likely to happen with Ubuntu and potentially other Linux distributions too. There will also be more tests to come; with OS X El Capitan, some of the PTS test profiles that formerly worked on OS X weren't working on this new release and so those additional benchmarks will come later on.
After failing to build working kernels for the past few weeks, the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel PPA is finally offering working daily Linux kernel builds.
Today's kernel build following Linux 4.4-rc3 is the first since the release candidates began to have a successful build of Linux 4.4. All the builds up to now were borked due to a Lustre/LNET dependency issue.
LEGO bricks: To a parent, they're a virtual minefield, hidden away in the carpet to inflict unimaginable pain from a seemly innocent barefoot step. But to a child, they are a tool for creatively engineering anything the mind can imagine. And for many, they are our first foray into open source. The instructions with a LEGO set start out as rigid rules, and become merely guidelines as children learn to remix, adapt, and extend the "code" which defines the object being built, and then be shared with anyone nearby.
This season’s spirit of giving fits right in with the Linux and open source philosophy. Whether you’re paying it forward in line for coffee, volunteering at a local food bank, or contributing to an open source project in your spare time, giving back to the community is what it’s all about.
In keeping with that tradition, the Linux Foundation is offering a special Cyber Monday deal on training and certification to help you build your job skills or transition to a new career.
This week only, you can sign up for training and certification as a Linux system administrator for a special rate of $179 (regularly $499)! This special deal includes.
So, what to take a away from this? In a reduced form, Plasma can be a huge help to create also Android applications. The mobile components which we’re developing with Plasma Mobile as target in mind have had their first real world exposure and a lot of fixes, we got very useful feedback from the Subsurface community which we’re directly feeding back into our components.
“Matrix” is a sensor-studded Ubuntu Snappy based home automation and surveillance hub that supports voice automation and gesture and face recognition.
In 2014, AdMobilize applied its computer vision (CV) expertise to the AdBeacon, a recently upgraded Linux-based device that sits next to display advertising and watches, and analyzes public response (see farther below). Now, the Miami Beach-based firm has gone to Kickstarter to sell a Linux-based home automation hub called the Matrix, which uses similar computer vision technology, including gesture and face recognition.
Germany’s Aerospace Centre DLR is steadily increasing its use of free and open source software. The DLR is already using open source tools for many of its software development projects, and also makes several of its solutions available as open source. In addition, the research institute plans in the long-term to use open source for it PC operating systems, office productivity and collaboration tools.
Well for one we all need to advertise Linux to the general public, it has been about 5 years since there was a push to advertise Linux to the general public. (example: The Kid Commerical by IBM in 2005)
Our displays at events need to show the public what Linux can do for them for their daily computer tasks. (examples be it from email, web browsing to using Linux for Amateur Radio Emergency Communications).
The popular website Tux Machines has evidently fallen victim to a DDOS attack that made the site unavailable for part of the day on Friday. The announcement of the attack was initially made in a blog notice posted on the site late Friday morning GMT which opened with the line “Tux Machines has been mostly offline this morning.”
When the Raspberry Pi Zero was announced last week, I thought that I had very little chance of getting one anytime soon. It was obvious to me that this wonderful little computer would sell like the proverbial hotcakes, plus the fact that they were being given away with The MagPi magazine on UK newsstands meant that whatever initial production run there had been was going to be gone very, very quickly.
Today it is no longer sufficient to cover Microsoft and Cisco certifications only. A well-prepared IT professional needs to know about Linux too. Linux is the power behind the cloud, open source and the Internet of things.
It took the Linux community a while, but they finally managed to put together a very good Windows 10 theme that works on most of the famous desktop environment.
Yesterday, Gammu 1.36.7 has been released.
Sometime earlier last year, I started to help Philippe Massicotte with his gtrendsR package---which was then still "hiding" in relatively obscurity on BitBucket. I was able to assist with a few things related to internal data handling as well as package setup and package builds--but the package is really largely Philippe's. But then we both got busy, and it wasn't until this summer at the excellent useR! 2015 conference that we met and concluded that we really should finish the package. And we both remained busy...
The first of two laptops ordered so far is the Toshiba Satellite L55D-C5269. For $449 USD, this laptop provides a 15.6-inch display, AMD A10-8700P APU, 8GB of DDR3L memory, and 1TB SATA HDD. The most interesting part of that for the forthcoming tests is the A10-8700P -- a Carrizo APU. The A10-8700P is a Carrizo APU with two Excavator CPU modules and Radeon R7 graphics with six compute cores.
Wildfire Games, an international group of volunteer game developers, proudly announces the release of “0 A.D. Alpha 19 Syllepsis”, the nineteenth alpha version of 0 A.D., a free, open-source game of ancient warfare. This alpha features building and siege engine capture, a new pathfinder, visual replay and more!
Hatred is one of the most controversial games that has been published on Steam, is also coming to the Linux platforms sometime in the near future as developers have managed to run it on Ubuntu successfully.
We’re ( kde-sig ) trying slowly improve the quality of Fedora KDE and Qt, and is a lot of work. Some of the members even got to new jobs reducing the time to deal as “life” happens, which makes the work harder. Rex Dieter, our fearless ( and reasonable ) leader do a fantastic 100 people work, but still, we have enough to 100+n persons. So anything that can reduce the test time and the burden on the process are a necessary solution.
Some can arg that rawhide is a test place, and they are right, but is for a devel future, not for a soon to be stable set of packages. And we’re hardly see people using rawhide on production aside us in some very very very restricted cases and most of all, in virtual machines, not bare metal.
Then we can go to the -testing repo, which leads to Fedora buildsystem, that not helps much as every new package submitted need rely of someone say’s ok to testing stage or worst, wait minimum 7 days until reach the servers.
And is not testing per se, as if we wait for 7 days without anyone really tested the package and reach the stable with a bad version, so we’re be double screwed.
New version of Kwort available, this one is 4.3. Get it while it's hot!
Just a few moments ago, November 27, the openSUSE Project, through Douglas DeMaio, announced the latest updates to the openSUSE Tumbleweed and openSUSE Leap 42.1 GNU/Linux operating systems.
