Gentoo

cookingwithlinux.com: I was first introduced to Linux in 1998, when it was, perhaps, entering “puberty”. When I was introduced to Linux, I was interested in learning about it. In those days, Linux was harder to use and if you didn't have a love of computers you might have given up. Linux has come a long way since then. Since I wanted more control of my system, I was interested in 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. As promised I am going to write a follow up post about how this was handled and what the result of the cooperation with Gentoo’s infrastructure team was.

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?

Gentoo

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?

Why I Use Gentoo?

rahulthewall.wordpress: I have been asked this question many times. And of course the assumption is that I am some sort of a masochist who enjoys wasting time on compiling packages. However, that is not entirely true. There are some other reasons.

On Gentoo Releases and stuff

Filed under
Gentoo

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.

UKSM Is Still Around For Data Deduplication Of The Linux Kernel

Several years back we wrote about Ultra Kernel Samepage Merging (UKSM) for data de-duplication within the Linux kernel for transparently scanning all application memory and de-duping it where possible. While the original developer is no longer active, a new developer has been maintaining the work and continues to support it on the latest Linux kernel releases. Read more

Why Dell’s gamble on Linux laptops has paid off

The whole juggernaut that is now Linux on Dell started as the brainchild of two core individuals, Barton George (Senior Principal Engineer) and Jared Dominguez (OS Architect and Linux Engineer). It was their vision that began it all back in 2012. It was long hours, uncertain futures and sheer belief that people really did want Linux laptops that sustained them. Here is the untold story of how Dell gained the top spot in preinstalled Linux on laptops. Where do you start when no one has ever really even touched such a concept? The duo did have some experience of the area before. George explained that the XPS and M3800 Linux developer’s laptops weren’t Dell’s first foray into Linux laptops. Those with long memories may remember Dell testing the waters for a brief while by having a Linux offering alongside Windows laptops. By their own admission it didn’t work out. “We misread the market,” commented George. Read more Also: New Entroware Aether Laptop for Linux Powered with Ubuntu

A Short MATE Desktop 1.17 Review in February 2017

MATE 1.17 is a testing release, it has no official announcement like 1.16 stable release (odd = unstable, even = stable). But what made me interested is because Ubuntu MATE 17.04 includes it by default so I write this short review. The most fundamental news is about MATE Desktop is now completely ported to GTK+3 leaving behind GTK+2. You may be interested seeing few changes and I have tried Ubuntu MATE 17.04 Alpha 2 to review MATE 1.17 below. Enjoy MATE 1.17! Read more Also: What's up with the hate towards Freedesktop?
