Rebellin Linux Offers Best of Both Gnome Worlds

Both versions generally performed well. The Rebellin distro is impressive considering its small development team. Rebellin is not without a few glitches, however. One major problem I had with several of my computers testing the distro was with the audio playback in both the GNOME and the Mate editions. It did not play back. I double checked all the settings, even making sure that the mute option was not checked. Another issue affected just the Mate edition. The touchpad settings are not available, and the Touchpad tab itself is missing. The Synaptics Touchpad Driver is not being loaded in Rebellin Mate, according to Rebellin's developer. He posted a workaround that may temporarily resolve the problem. It is a multistep process that is not very straightforward. Read more

Petros Koutoupis' RapidDisk

RapidDisk is an open-source and enhanced Linux RAM drive solution led by BDFL Petros Koutoupis (who also writes for Linux Journal) that allows users to create, resize and remove RAM drives dynamically or map those same RAM drives as a cache to slower data volumes. The latest version 4.0 release adds a series of complementary improvements, such as kernel module optimizations, code cleanup/redesign and bug fixes. RapidDisk consists of a collection of kernel modules, an administration utility, high-availability scripts and a RESTful API for third-party integration. By design, RapidDisk volumes are thinly provisioned and will allocate memory only upon usage. Read more
