PCLOS

synergenerator.blogspot: Still looking for a more complete workstation for my laptop. I think GNOME and KDE might still be a little sluggish with only 512MB RAM. I have tried PCLinuxOS in the past and found it quite user-friendly so I thought I would give it a go with one of it's derivatives: Phoenix (PCLOS Xfce).

temporaryland.wordpress: For the last few months my Thinkpad has been, and still is, the host of several wonderful Linux distributions, all of them based on the new KDE 4 desktop environment. So, today, in mid summer 2009, is there still a reason to run a KDE 3 desktop? Well, if it wasn’t for PCLinuxOS I would have to say no.

Software: Samba, Cockpit, Termius, Remmina, Krita, Sublime Text, Slack Inside Emacs

  • Samba 4.7.0 (Samba AD for the Enterprise)
    Enterprise distributions like Red Hat or SUSE are required to ship with MIT Kerberos. The reason is that several institutions or governments have a hard requirement for a special Kerberos implementation. It is the reason why the distributions by these vendors (Fedora, RHEL, openSUSE, SLES) only package Samba FS and not the AD component. To get Samba AD into RHEL some day it was clear, that we need to port it to MIT Kerberos. In 2013 we started to think about this. The question which arise first was: How do we run the tests if we port to MIT Kerberos? We want to start the krb5kdc daemon. This was more or less the birth of the cwrap project! Think of cwrap like it is “The Matrix” where reality is simulated and everything is a lie. It allows us to create an artificial environment emulating a complete network to test Samba. It took nearly a year till we were able to integrate the first part of cwrap, socket_wrapper, into Samba.
  • Cockpit 151
    The User menu’s Authentication dialog now supports entering arbitrary paths to SSH keys for adding to the SSH authentication agent. Previously this only offered keys present in the standard ~/.ssh home directory.

  • Chap tames Slack by piping it into Emacs
    Emacs enthusiast Artur Malabarba has put the text editor to work taming Slack. Malabarba likes Slack and feels it's a fine tool for intra-office chat, but also feels that “it’s also a powerful source of distractions.” But he can't turn it off all day, so decided to “keep the spam in check.” Doing so proved quite simple. There's already a Slack client for Emacs here on GitHub and Malabarba put it to work alongside “Alerts”, a “Growl-like alerts notifier for Emacs.”

    GNOME developer Bastien Nocera has implemented enhancements to the Bluetooth stack of the Fedora Linux operating system, reported Softpedia.

  • Nifty GNOME Global Menu Extension Is ‘Discontinued For the Moment’
    The developer behind the popular Global App Menu GNOME extension has announced it is “discontinued for the moment”. Explaining the reasons for his decision on Github, Lester Carballo cites the shift to Wayland (the extension doesn’t work in Wayland for a whole spaghetti heap of technical and ideological reasons) as being the primate motivator to move on. Canonical also has no plans to support the unity-gtk-module under Wayland (a crucial component that this extension, and similar app menu implementations, rely on).
