  • A look at the kernel bisection scripts
    I've been hacking on the bisection scripts for quite some time now. Things got stalled for a bit in October/November. I introduced several bugs which caused me to lose multiple days of testing verification so I took a break and worked on other things to relieve my frustrations. They are now at the point where they could use some testing besides my own. Here's a walk through of what I have
  • Unconscious biases
    Matthew Garrett’s recent very good response to Eric Raymond’s recent post opposing inclusiveness efforts in free software reminded me of something I’ve been noticing more and more often: a very substantial proportion of the female developers I encounter working on the kernel are from non-European cultures where I (and I expect most people from western cultures) lack familiarity with the gender associations of all but the most common and familiar names.
  • Mesa 11.1.0 3D Graphics Library Release Candidate 2 Has over 60 Bugfixes

  • Laptop Mode Tools Review - Increase the Battery Life of Your Laptop
    I tested Laptop Mode Tools in Ubuntu 15.10, and it’s available in the official repos. You can use the Ubuntu Software Center to install it, and in this case, it’s quite useful because it also provides the option to install a couple more packages, one for Ethernet devices settings and the other one for Advanced Power Management (APD).

  • Build Your Own Linux Cloud Alternative

This article will dive head first into solutions that allow folks to enjoy the advantages of running their own personal cloud without relying on off-site servers.
  • MKV Extractor Qt Review - A Simple Tool for Your MKV Needs
    MKV Extractor Qt is yet another tool that helps users manage MKV video files, and it has this function and this function only. The MKV container is becoming a lot more prominent in the industry, which is causing some problems to the community. This is only a container, and in theory, it should work on any systems and in any conditions, but that’s not happening. Sometimes users need to unpack the MKV file for various purposes.

    I built perl-podlators-4.00 in Rawhide (only).
  • FESCo Elections: Interview with Adam Miller (maxamillion)
    My history in Fedora technically pre-dates the Fedora Project itself, I’ve been a member of the user community since Red Hat Linux 7 and I still have my boxed set of “Deluxe Workstation” sitting on my book shelf. However, my time as an active contributor to the Fedora Project is far more recent having started during the Fedora 8 cycle when I both became a Fedora Packager and a member of the Fedora QA community.

  • Linux Top 3: Oracle Linux 7.2, Sabayon 15.12 and KaOS 2015.11
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.2 was officially released on November 19 and barely a week later, Oracle Linux 7.2 is now available too. Oracle Linux is based on RHEL and tends to track releases more closely than other RHEL clones. Officially Oracle calls its release Oracle Linux 7 Update 2 and makes it available with the upstream RHEL kernel as well as the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) release 3.

    I recently presented a talk at the Debian miniconf in Cambridge. This was a new talk explaining what goes on in a web browser to get a web page on screen. The presentation was filmed and my slides are also available. I think it went over pretty well despite the venues lighting adding a strobe ambiance to part of proceedings.
