  • DEVit Conf 2016

    TechMinistry is Thessaloniki's hacker space which is hosted at a central location, near major shopping streets. I've attended an Open Source Wednesday meeting. From the event description I thought that there was going to be a discussion about getting involved with Firefox. However that was not the case. Once people started coming in they formed organic groups and started discussing various topics on their own.

  • Fedora is on diaspora*

    diaspora is a distributed social networking platform comprised of nodes, called pods. These pods are linked together to allow users to connect seamlessly. This idea is different from the traditional social network, where user data is centralized and controlled by a single entity. diaspora is also free as in speech, so you can use it however you like. diaspora* also values your privacy. You don’t have to use your real identity, and you have complete control over who sees your content using Aspects.

Red Hat: The Answer is always the same: Layers of Security

Filed under
Red Hat

There is a common misperception that now that containers support seccomp we no longer need SELinux to help protect our systems. WRONG. The big weakness in containers is the container possesses the ability to interact with the host kernel and the host file systems. Securing the container processes is all about shrinking the attack surface on the host OS and more specifically on the host kernel.

  • spice OpenGL/virgl acceleration on Fedora 24

    New in Fedora 24 virt is 3D accelerated SPICE graphics, via Virgl. This is kinda-sorta OpenGL passthrough from the VM up to the host machine. Much of the initial support has been around since qemu 2.5, but it's more generally accessible now that SPICE is in the mix, since that's the default display type used by virt-manager and gnome-boxes.

    I'll explain below how you can test things on Fedora 24, but first let's cover the hurdles and caveats. This is far from being something that can be turned on by default and there's still serious integration issues to iron out. All of this is regarding usage with libvirt tools.

  • Rawhide blogging

    April/May started the cycle of planning for the next year here in Red Hat. This means it's time to write goals. Goals are supposed to be SMART. This is easier for some parts of my job than others. One of my primary responsibilities is making Fedora releases. While discussing my goals, it was pointed out that just saying "Did I make releases?" doesn't fully capture what I do. Scripts can make releases. I can't yet replace myself with a script so this job must involve not being useless.

Ubuntu BQ Aquaris M10 Review – Part 1: Hardware

The mobile market today has practically been what former Microsoft-then-Nokia-then-Microsoft-again exec Stephen Elop loved to refer to as a two-horse race. Android and iOS have been butting heads quarter after quarter, year after year. Despite their popularity and ubiquity, neither is truly perfect and neither can really meet everyone's needs and preferences. Which leaves a little wiggle room for other platforms (that includes Windows 10) to try and fill in the gaps. This time around we are going to take a closer look at one the newer challengers, Ubuntu Touch, as it is embodied in the recent bq Aquaris M10 tablet. How does it fare against the bevy of Android, iOS, and even Windows tablets scattered throughout the market? And does it have what it takes to not only stand tall and proud but also to survive? Read on to find our verdict. Read more
