  • So long, Linux Journal

    If you don't know, Linux Journal has ceased publication. Unless an investor drops in at the last minute, the LJ website will soon shut down. Thus ends over twenty-three years in Linux and open source publication. That's quite a legacy!

    Linux Journal first hit shelves in April 1994. To remind you about those times: that's when Linux reached the 1.0 version milestone. That's also the same year that I started the FreeDOS Project. Elsewhere in technology, Yahoo!, Amazon, and Netscape got their start in 1994. That's also the same year the shows E.R. and Friends first hit TV. Also that year, the movies Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump, Speed, and Stargate.

  • Earthlock: Festival of Magic to get a new edition, developer has 'not given up' on Linux yet

    The story of Earthlock: Festival of Magic [Official Site] is a little odd. The developer released a Linux alpha version back in 2016 and since then nothing has happened. A new edition has been announced and it's still somewhat positive for Linux.

  • Will tomorrow's core banking systems run on open-source software?
  • Apple to open source its first graphical OS from the Lisa
  • Mixed Blessings Of Greenfield Software Development

    The biggest software project I have ever worked on, and hopefully ever will work on, was Gecko. I was not one of its original architects, so my work on Gecko was initially very tightly constrained by design decisions made by others. Over the years some of those decisions were rescinded, and some of the new decisions were mine, but I always felt frustrated at being locked into designs that I didn't choose and (with the benefit of hindsight, at least) would not have chosen. "Wouldn't it be great", I often thought, "to build something entirely new from scratch, hopefully getting things right, or at least having no-one other than myself to blame for my mistakes!" I guess a lot of programmers feel this, and that's why we see more project duplication than the world really needs.

    I was lucky enough at Mozilla to work on a project that gave me a bit of an outlet for this — rr. I didn't actually do much coding in rr at the beginning — Albert Noll, Nimrod Partush and Chris Jones got it underway — but I did participate in the design decisions.

  • NodeSource Raises $17.5M to Advance Node.js Applications

    When looking to build and deploy enterprise applications in 2018, NodeSource and its' investors are betting that many will choose to use node.js

    Node.js is a widely deployed open-source JavaScript framework that NodeSource supports with its commercial N|Solid platform. On Dec. 25, NodeSource announced that it raised $17.5 million in a Series B round fo funding led by Silicon Valley Bank and Industry Ventures. Total funding to date for NodeSource now stands at $33.4 million, since the company was founded in 2014.

  • Apple’s flagship Chicago retail store wasn’t designed to handle snow [iophk: "typical for architecture everywhere: designed by non-locals"]

    Apple’s new flagship retail store in Chicago, the one with a MacBook-shaped rooftop, is nothing short of an architectural marvel. At least, that’s how some news reports put it when the store opened back in October. Beyond standing out among the less inspired buildings of the downtown Chicago area, the new Apple Store also happens to be very poorly thought through considering its thin roof now has dangerous icicles hanging perilously over public walkways.

  • 'Steve Jobs' is an Italian company — and Apple can't do anything about it

    After years of legal battles, a pair of brothers — Vincenzo and Giacomo Barbato — have successfully managed to win a legal battle against Apple, earning the right to call their company “Steve Jobs,” after Apple’s iconic founder, according to la Repubblica Napoli.

    The fight began back in in 2012, when the two brothers noticed that Apple had never trademarked Jobs’ name. The pair were already in the process of starting their own clothing and accessory company, after spending years creating products for other brands, and decided that “Steve Jobs” would be the perfect name for their new brand.

  • Ubuntu 17.10 'Artful Aardvark' burrows into PC BIOSs causing boot issues

    A bug report filed on Ubuntu's bug tracker, Launchpad, has many users of the popular free OS complaining about corrupted BIOSs after updating their notebooks to the latest Ubuntu 17.10 'Artful Aardvark' release. The affected laptops primarily included Lenovo models and a few ones from Acer. Users complain of a host of firmware related problems after installing the OS viz. the BIOS, or more precisely the UEFI, is no longer able to save settings, not being able to exit the BIOS settings, or even not being able to boot from USB. Following the gravity of the complaints, Canonical has temporarily halted seeding downloads of Ubuntu 17.10 desktop and said that a fix is being worked upon.

  • Open access in Germany: the best DEAL is no deal

    In the worldwide campaign to shift academic publishing to open access, the Germans are fighting a major battle. To many, they look like heroes.

    “Projekt DEAL” is the name of a German national consortium that includes university libraries and scientific organisations. The consortium has been working towards an agreement with Elsevier that, if the Germans have their way, would make papers by German authors in journals published by Elsevier freely available (open access), at a substantially lower rate than Elsevier is currently charging.

  • Porting Of Changes/Fixes From AMDVLK To RADV Vulkan Driver Begins

    RADV Vulkan driver co-founder David Airlie has begun digging through AMD's newly-opened AMDVLK official Vulkan driver in order to gain some hindsight and port some fixes/changes to this unofficial Mesa-based open-source Vulkan driver.

    Back from his Christmas break, earlier today David Airlie posed some questions to AMD about the future of AMDVLK. Previously he indicated that he would continue RADV now regardless of AMD's open-source actions, but we'll see what ends up happening over the weeks/months ahead. Among his questions were how the AMDVLK development process will be handled at AMD, how AMD will be engaging with the open-source community, the development process for new Vulkan functionality, etc.

  • 4MLinux Operating System Gets Christmas Release with Some New Amazing Features

    4MLinux developer Zbigniew Konojacki‏ informs Softpedia today about the general availability of a special Christmas release of his independently developed GNU/Linux distribution, 4MLinux 23.1.1.

    4MLinux 23.1.1 might look like a point release to most users, but, in fact, it's a major revamp of the 4MLinux 23 stable series of the operating system that brings full 3D support for Intel, AMD Radeon, and Nvidia graphics cards, as well as popular apps like VLC Media Player, Google Chrome, Audacious, and GNOME Office.

    Despite adding all these new apps and features, 4MLinux remains friendly with older computers, as the integrated Legacy Installer lets users install 4MLinux on machines with no more than 128 MB of RAM and 2GB of free disk space. 4MLinux 23.1.1 is developer's way of saying Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all 4MLinux users.

    However, I cannot avoid feeling sad about the demise of FirefoxOS.  While most of the apps have Android versions by now, some of the games never made it to Android. For example, my three favorite games, or what I called "The Cat Trilogy", were doomed to extinction and cannot be found in the Android app ecosystem.

  • How Dell built a community to prepare for an open future

    No one working in cloud and data centers should be surprised that organizations have changed how they run their IT departments. Applications are written and deployed differently, moving away from monoliths to microservices. Organizations operate their data centers by applying development principles to operations through open source software and community collaboration. Open source software is used heavily in development, testing, and production. In a survey done in 2016, 90% of respondents say open source improves their efficiency, interoperability, and innovation, and 65% of companies are contributing to open source projects.

    This type of "innovation-through-openness" has proven that global collaboration on code and inclusivity of diverse intellectual contributions advance the technological state of the art and solve problems faster.

  • Art Eavesdrops on Life and Pagers

    Pagers use a protocol — POCSAG — that predates our modern (and well-founded) obsession with privacy and security. That isn’t surprising although the idea that private medical data is flying through the air like this is. Decoding POCSAG isn’t hard. GNU Radio, for example, can easily handle the task.

  • Security Education in Uncertain Times: 2017 in Review

        

    We facilitated two webinars with the Electronic Frontier Alliance and learned more about the digital security training scene in various cities around the US. These conversations with trainers helped us to assess what seasoned digital security trainers are already doing, what kind of resources they are using, what kinds of resources are missing, and where more guidance is needed for newer teachers of digital security. We learned that many trainers use our Surveillance Self-Defense resources to inform their training, and we learned where trainers felt that these existing resources fell short. We shared these comments back with our SSD team, and we have worked hard to address these concerns.

    We decided to narrow our audience to new teachers of digital security who would be teaching to their friends and neighbors.

  • The Wayland Zombie Apocalypse is Near

    Quite some time ago I received a report of a nasty Wayland bug: under certain circumstances a Wayland event was being delivered with an incorrect file descriptor. The reporter dug deeper and determined the root cause of this; it wasn’t good.

    When a client deletes a Wayland object, there might still be protocol events coming from the compositor destined for it (as a contrived example, I delete my keyboard object because I’m done processing keys for the day, but the user is still typing…). Once the compositor receives the delete request it knows it can’t send any more events, but due to the asynchronous nature of Wayland, there could still be some unprocessed events in the buffer destined for the recently deleted object.

  • Samsung Dealing With Wayland "Zombie Apocalypse" Bug

    Samsung OSG developers have been investigating and dealing with a nasty Wayland bug whereby a Wayland event could be delivered to an incorrect file descriptor. This ends up being due to a shortcoming in the Wayland protocol, but as to not break all existing software out there built against the current Wayland protocol, a workaround has been devised.

    Longtime Wayland developer Derek Foreman has written a blog post about the "Wayland Zombie Apocalypse" and talks about this issue that comes up since file descriptors aren't part of the main data stream that in some cases they get leaked when deleting a Wayland object. The bug could lead to the file descriptor being leaked to the Wayland client and counting against the number of allowed open file descriptors, but worse could lead to unknown behavior due to events going to incorrect FDs.

  • Eelo: The Latest Linux Mobile Attempt, Led By Mandrake's Founder

    The latest project aiming for an open-source mobile Linux operating system that is privacy-minded is Eelo. This project does have some merit as it's being started by the original creator of Mandrake Linux.

    Gaël Duval founded Mandrake Linux in the late 90's when it was a RedHat/KDE distribution and prior to being acquired by Mandriva and then later on Gael Duval worked on Ulteo. Duval has been out of the Linux scene the past few years with being a macOS and iPhone user, but now he's decided to get back in the Linux distribution game with an attempt to create a new Linux mobile OS effort.

  • Mandrake Linux founder is developing eelo: an open source mobile OS (Android without the Google apps and services)

    Google’s Android operating system may be open source, but most of the phones and other devices that ship with Android also include a bunch of closed source apps and services including the Google Play Store, Gmail, YouTube, and Google Maps.

    Mandrake Linux founder Gaël Duval wasn’t satisfied with that, so he decided to create a new fork of Android called eelo that uses only free and open source software.

  • Kontact on Debian

    Now after Debian has woken up again from its slumber, we first had to update Qt and KDE Frameworks. After the first attempt at packaging KDE Pim 17.08.0, that was released for experimental, we are now finally reaching the point where we can package and deliver KDE Pim 17.08.3 to Debian unstable. Because Pino Toscano and I had time we started packaging it and stumbled across the issue of having to package 58 source packages, all dependent on each other. Keep in mind all packaging work is not a oneman or twoman show, mostly all in the Qt/KDE Debian mantainers are involved somehow. Either by putting their name under a upload or by being available via IRC, mail and answering questions, making jokes or doing what so ever. Jonathan Riddell visualized the dependencies for KDE Pim 16.08 with graphviz. But KDE Pim is a fast moving target, and I wanted to make my own graphs and make them more useful for packaging.

  • Why SUSE Is Using FBCON Rather Than DRM/KMS For Their In-Kernel Boot Splash

    As we've been covering since the original patches back in October, SUSE has been working on a very interesting in-kernel bootsplash system. It's growing into an interesting alternative to the user-space-based Plymouth, but one of the leading common criticism of it is the use of FBCON rather than interfacing with the DRM/KMS APIs.

  • Switching Distro’s

    Obviously I still use FreeBSD on the desktop; with the packages from area51 I have a full and modern KDE Plasma environment. We (as in, the KDE-FreeBSD team) are still wrestling with getting the full Plasma 5 into the official ports tree (stalled, as so often it has been, on concerns of backwards compatibility), but things like CMake 3.10.1 and Qt 5.9 are sliding into place. Slowly, like brontosauruses driving a ’57 Cadillac.

    In the meantime, I do most of my Calamares development work — it is a Linux installer, after all — in VMs with some Linux distro installed. Invariably — and especially when working on tools that do the most terrible things to the disks attached to a system — I totally break the system, the VM no longer starts at all, and my development environment is interrupted for a bit.

A new and independent effort is a Linux kernel driver for the Steam Controller. Through reverse-engineering, Rodrigo Rivas Costa has been developing a kernel driver for the Valve Steam Controller. This driver supports both USB cable and USB wireless adapters for the Steam Controller. This driver is being developed as a proper HID kernel driver so it should work with all existing Linux programs and doesn't require the use of the proprietary Steam client.
