It's Sunday afternoon, and everything is normal. And that means that
there's a new rc release right on time.
It's slightly bigger than I'd like, but not excessively so (and not
unusually so). Most of the patches are pretty small, although the diff
is utterly dominated by the (big) removal a couple of staging rdma
drivers that just weren't going anywhere. Those removal patches are
90% of the bulk of the diff.
Q4OS Linux Distro Adds a Trinity Repository, Now Ready for ARM Devices
Softpedia has been informed earlier today, February 7, by the developers of the Q4OS Linux distribution about the immediate availability for download of the seventh point release in the Q4OS 1.4 "Orion" series.
Q4OS 1.4.7 "Orion" is, in fact, a small, yet important maintenance release, which gives users full access to all the Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) packages by default, thanks to the implementation of a system-wide Trinity software repository.
This way, Q4OS users won't have to add manually any third-party Trinity Desktop Environment software repositories anymore. Besides this important change, Q4OS 1.4.7 delivers the usual security patches and software updates.
I’ve been looking for an ARMed replacement for Beast’s power-sucking/fanfull/large corpse. This isn’t it. It is a very well documented controller that ships with a minimal installation of Debian GNU/Linux complete with GUI. I could, for instance, use this thing to make a pulsewidth modulator for a power supply. It’s obviously overkill for such a task but at the advertised price, $9, it’s OK.
If you want to build a powerful $40 Linux or Android PC with 4K video support, consider Hardkernel's Odroid-C2 computer.
The developer board is an uncased computer like the popular Raspberry Pi 2, which sells for $35. But South Korea-based Hardkernel claims Odroid-C2 has more horsepower than its popular rival and can be a desktop replacement.
