SUSE: Unleash the Tiger!

Filed under
SUSE

This is our first dispatch from the front lines: Washington DC. And I am not speaking of the election front lines, but of the Linux front. Linux Journal has come to SUSECon this year to, among other things, gauge the state of the world concerning all things open source. To plagiarize every president at the start of every state of the union address, the state of Linux is strong!

Especially so if the “state of SUSE” is any indicator. Suse revenues and total billings have increased 18% this year, 24% in the US. More interestingly, and perhaps more indicative of the global, tidal-wave sized trend, their number of $1 million++ contracts signed this year grew 22% while the dollar value of those deals grew a staggering 65%. So SUSE has signed more larger contracts for more, much larger deployments than ever before.

    Although its "Ruby" meetup, it usually isn't just about Ruby. The programming language itself is not that important. Important is the reason: To connect great minds, ideas and solutions together.

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

Filed under
Red Hat
SUSE

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers."

In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.

SUSE News: New Release, More

Filed under
SUSE
  • Tumbleweed gets new Wayland, FreeType, Digikam

    A couple of snapshots have been released since the last Tumbleweed update, but in those two snapshots were an enormous amount of package updates.

    Snapshot 20161003 was the first snapshot to arrive in Tumbleweed during the month of October and it brought two new major version packages.

    Digikam 5.2.0 was updated in the repository and the release introduces a new red eyes tool that automates the red-eyes effect reduction process, which was from a new algorithm written by a Google Summer of Code 2016 student named Omar Amin. Python3-setuptools to 28.0.0 was the other package that received a major version upgrade.

  • OpenSUSE Tumbleweed Lands Wayland 1.12, Qt 5.7

    There are a number of exciting package updates for the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling-release Linux distribution.

    The recently-released Wayland 1.12 has landed in openSUSE Tumbleweed, but as far as I know the GNOME or KDE editions of Tumbleweed are yet to use Wayland by default.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed Receives Wayland 1.12, LibreOffice 5.2.2, and digiKam 5.2

    Today, October 13, 2016, openSUSE Project's Douglas DeMaio announced the latest software packages that landed in the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release operating system.

    It appears that only a couple of snapshots have been released for openSUSE Tumbleweed during the past week, but they brought a large amount of updated packages, among which we can mention the LibreOffice 5.2.2 office suite, Qt 5.7 GUI toolkit, LightDM 1.19.5 login manager, as well as digiKam 5.2.0 image editor and organizer.

Security: Updates, 2017 Linux Security Summit, Software Updates for Embedded Linux and More

  • Security updates for Tuesday
  • The 2017 Linux Security Summit
    The past Thursday and Friday was the 2017 Linux Security Summit, and once again I think it was a great success. A round of thanks to James Morris for leading the effort, the program committee for selecting a solid set of talks (we saw a big increase in submissions this year), the presenters, the attendees, the Linux Foundation, and our sponsor - thank you all! Unfortunately we don't have recordings of the talks, but I've included my notes on each of the presentations below. I've also included links to the slides, but not all of the slides were available at the time of writing; check the LSS 2017 slide archive for updates.
  • Key Considerations for Software Updates for Embedded Linux and IoT
    The Mirai botnet attack that enslaved poorly secured connected embedded devices is yet another tangible example of the importance of security before bringing your embedded devices online. A new strain of Mirai has caused network outages to about a million Deutsche Telekom customers due to poorly secured routers. Many of these embedded devices run a variant of embedded Linux; typically, the distribution size is around 16MB today. Unfortunately, the Linux kernel, although very widely used, is far from immune to critical security vulnerabilities as well. In fact, in a presentation at Linux Security Summit 2016, Kees Cook highlighted two examples of critical security vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel: one being present in kernel versions from 2.6.1 all the way to 3.15, the other from 3.4 to 3.14. He also showed that a myriad of high severity vulnerabilities are continuously being found and addressed—more than 30 in his data set.
