Gentoo

ahfaeroey.wordpress: Some of you might have read my previous blog post about the attack on Exherbo’s quote database that I wrote about yesterday.

ahfaeroey.wordpress: Yesterday Exherbo’s Quote database experienced a very primitive attack. The purpose was to turn all the rank values on our quotes into negative numbers. In this post we are going to analyse the log files from the attack and see “who did this”.

Does Gentoo make sense?

ceki.blogspot: When I mention to colleagues in the IT industry that compiling packages before installing them on a computer is a good thing, they either give me a blank look or an ever slight smirk. What is the point wasting many hours waiting for some package to compile instead of fetching the binaries from a repository and have it installed in seconds?

blog.i-no.de: When I got more involved with Gentoo, the release team was aiming to release the then-pending release (2007.1) in early December. Eventually, that date slipped time and again. It was decided to drop the entire release and do a new one (2008.0). Again, the dates kept slipping. Now, the question is why a release is slipping time and again.

Never Heard of Exherbo? Never Will, Either.

crn.com: In the open-source world, it's fairly commonplace for developers to modify an existing application and create a new application. We don't begrudge developers their fun, but Exherbo made us pause. It shares a lot of concepts from Gentoo, but Exherbo's developers claim that it is not a true Gentoo fork.

The Exherbo brouhaha

kmandla.wordpress: Don’t fault yourself as clueless just because you haven’t heard about the Exherbo yet. The distro-to-be seems to have gotten some attention for making it clear that your help is not needed, thank you very much.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
