What happens when a non-coder tries to learn Linux
The Linux Foundation has created all of the content for the course, including the videos, written text, activities, and labs. It's clear to me that their content team has made an effort to space out the videos between the written material in a way that gives you a break from endless reading. Also, each video is only approximately 30 seconds to 2 minutes long. They avoid getting into the weeds too much at once, giving you chunks of knowledge, letting you test it out, then moving on to another topic. Each chapter points out that as the course progresses, you will go into further depth with each topic.
Jailhouse 0.1 released
This release particularly means full exploitation of VT-d DMA and
interrupt remapping to isolate assigned PCI devices from the hypervisor
and foreign cells. Moreover, the usability of Jailhouse was greatly
improved by the introduction and continuous extension of a generator for
system configuration files. Finally, a framework for writing basic cell
applications is available now. With a few lines of C code you can set up
timer interrupts, read clocks or configure PCI devices for the use in
simple bare-metal real-time applications.
Ubuntu Launcher 0.5.5 for Android Will Transform Your Phone in Ubuntu – Gallery
Many users might have something against the Unity desktop environment that's being used in Ubuntu, but the truth is that Unity comes with a great app launcher. Coincidentally, the same kind of launcher might work very well on phones and a similar implementation is being done for Ubuntu Touch.
Haiku OS Gains Rudimentary Support For Haswell Graphics
Haiku, the open-source operating system that maintains compatibility with the defunct BeOS, now appears to have basic support for Haswell graphics.
A commit hit Haiku Git today entitled Add support for my Core i3 integrated graphics. The commit just adds Haswell desktop PCI IDs and that's about it, but was apparently enough to have Adrien Destugues' Core i3 Haswell system now light up with Haiku.
