LXer: Packet radio lives on through open source software

3 hours 5 min ago
Packet radio is an amateur radio technology from the early 1980s that sends data between computers. Linux has natively supported the packet radio protocol, more formally known as AX.25, since 1993. Despite its age, amateur radio operators continue to use and develop packet radio today. A Linux packet station can be used for mail, chat, and TCP/IP. It also has some unique capabilities, such as tracking the positions of nearby stations or sending short messages via the International Space Station (ISS).read more

Reddit: Question about Live USB/Bootable Drives

3 hours 55 min ago

Okay this is probably gonna be a stupid question so feel free to downvote if you feel like it. Anyway, I am interested in running a distribution of Linux. However I do not want to dedicate a machine to it, or make a dual boot system. So that leaves running off a USB drive when I want to use it. My question is if I am doing it this way and decide I want to install programs or create files, will that stuff be saved to the USB? Would I be able to continue on with what I have done after rebooting? Thanks in advance.

Reddit: Why is this subreddit so toxic?

4 hours 47 min ago

A person comes to this subreddit and ask a genuine question and you decide to be a dick about it, is that how you want beginners to learn more about Linux? Maybe you should treat them with respect and answer their questions no matter how stupid the question seems to be. People want to learn about a new OS, just answer or ignore it.

I've never seen such a toxic subreddit, this is worse than /r/jailbreak ...

  • Intel Announces Early 8th Gen Core Processors, Coffee Lake

    Intel has rushed up the announcement of their 8th Gen Intel Core desktop processors following a recent leak. We can now confirm that these new Intel CPUs are en route to retailers, they have already arrived for testing, and will be benchmarked under Linux on Phoronix once that secondary embargo expires.

  • Intel Core i9 7980XE Linux Benchmarks: 18 Core / 36 Threads For $1999 USD

    Besides the embargo expiring this morning on the Intel Core i9 7960X, the Core i9 7980XE Extreme Edition processor is also now fair game. Here is our look at the Linux performance for this 18 core / 36 thread processor within a single 165 Watt package.

  • Intel Core i9 7960X Linux Benchmarks

    While Intel previously announced the expanded Intel Core X-Series line-up including the Core i9 7960X and Core i9 7980XE processors, only today is the performance embargo expiring as these CPUs begin to ship to further battle AMD's Ryzen Threadripper line-up. Here is today's launch-day Linux benchmarks of the Core i9 7960X.

TuxMachines: Linux 4.14-rc2

7 hours 7 min ago

I'm back to my usual Sunday release schedule, and rc2 is out there in
all the normal places.

This was a fairly usual rc2, with a very quiet beginning of the week,
and then most changes came in on Friday afternoon and Saturday (with
the last few ones showing up Sunday morning).

Normally I tend to dislike how that pushes most of my work into the
weekend, but this time I took advantage of it, spending the quiet part
of last week diving instead.

Anyway, the only unusual thing worth noting here is that the security
subsystem pull request that came in during the merge window got
rejected due to problems, and so rc2 ends up with most of that
security pull having been merged in independent pieces instead.

Also: Linux 4.14-rc2 Kernel Released

Manjaro Linux Phasing out i686 (32bit) Support

In a not very surprising move by the Manjaro Linux developers, a blog post was made by Philip, the Lead Developer of the popular distribution based off Arch Linux, On Sept. 23 that reveals that 32-bit support will be phased out. In his announcement, Philip says, “Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture. The decision means that v17.0.3 ISO will be the last that allows to install 32 bit Manjaro Linux. September and October will be our deprecation period, during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting from November 2017, packaging will no longer require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported.” Read more

Korora 26 'Bloat' Fedora-based Linux distro available for download -- now 64-bit only

Fedora is my favorite Linux distribution, but I don't always use it. Sometimes I opt for an operating system that is based on it depending on my needs at the moment. Called "Korora," it adds tweaks, repositories, codecs, and packages that aren't found in the normal Fedora operating system. As a result, Korora deviates from Red Hat's strict FOSS focus -- one of the most endearing things about Fedora. While you can add all of these things to Fedora manually, Korora can save you time by doing the work for you. Read more
