LXer: How to debug a C/C++ program with Nemiver debugger

Thursday 1st of January 2015 03:37:38 AM
If you read my post on GDB, you know how important and useful a debugger I think can be for a C/C++ program. However, if a command line debugger like GDB sounds more like a problem than a solution to you, you might be more interested in Nemiver. Nemiver is a GTK+-based standalone graphical debugger.

Slashdot: Ringing In 2015 With 40 Linux-Friendly Hacker SBCs

Thursday 1st of January 2015 03:05:00 AM
DeviceGuru writes As seen in this year-end summary of 40 hacker-friendly SBCs, 2014 brought us plenty of new Linux and Android friendly single-board computers to tinker with — ranging from $35 bargains, to octa-core powerhouses. Many of the new arrivals feature 1-2GHz multicore SoCs, 1-2GB RAM, generous built-in flash, gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, on-board FPGAs, and other extras. However, most of the growth has been in the sub-$50 segment, where the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone reign supreme, but are now being challenged by a growing number of feature-enhanced clones, such as the Banana Pi and Orange Pi. Best of all, there's every reason to expect 2015 to accelerate these trends.

TuxMachines: Happy New Year From Roy and Rianne

Thursday 1st of January 2015 01:55:55 AM

2014 was a great year for Tux Machines. The site moved to a new server with much higher capacity and better caching, Rianne and I moved to a better house, and we finally set up a tree the way we wanted to. Financial contributions from readers were enough to subsidise a laptop for Rianne and she now happily submits a lot of links from there.

In 2015 we expect to improve both volume and quality of links. We are going to think of ways to improve the Web site and we openly welcome suggestions from readers. The goal is to make the site more informative more efficiently. We wish to help readers steer away from cruft and gossip and instead identify news of importance, without repetition unless new information and details arise.

Reddit: Is there a DRM-Free mobile operating system, based off Linux?

Thursday 1st of January 2015 01:48:28 AM

Currently Ubuntu touch sparked my interest; however many people claim that Ubuntu touch isn't ready for everyday use? I am not too sure how truthful that statement is, so I am wondering if there is any FOSS and DRM free alternatives to Android?

Is it possible I could run a GNU Linux distribution such as Fedora on my Nexus 10 as a mobile operating system, or would that require a keyboard and mouse; which ultimately kills the mobile aspect?

Reddit: Battery life on notebooks with linux

Thursday 1st of January 2015 01:00:33 AM

Hey, I am looking for a distro for notebooks. In the past i used to dual boot Win7 and ubuntu but on ubuntu the battery life on my laptop would go down drastically compared to Win7. I assume this is because win7 change the cpu voltage so that the power consumption goes down and ubuntu couldn't i assume. Now is there a distro specifically for notebooks that deals with this problem?

TuxMachines: [Video] Hands-On Review of the Samsung Gear S wrist strap – Cobalt Blue

Thursday 1st of January 2015 12:57:27 AM

In all respects this is the Samsung quality as the original Gear S strap you are currently using, so you know this product well, but it is currently selling for £40 in the UK, which is about $62USD. This is a good product, but it’s at a premium price and you have to ask yourself, Do I really need it?

TuxMachines: Is SSH Insecure?

Thursday 1st of January 2015 12:36:52 AM

Fact is, we don’t yet know enough details about all possible attack surfaces against SSH available to the agencies and we badly need more information to know what infrastructure components remain save and reliable for our day to day work. However we do have an idea about the weak spots that should be avoided.

TuxMachines: Xiaomi Said to Launch a Linux Notebook

Wednesday 31st of December 2014 11:47:39 PM

Xiaomi is quickly becoming a major player in the tech gadget space. It’s already a huge smartphone maker in China, though has started to spread its wings into other arenas as well. Next up may be a new laptop, at least according to some specs that were recently provided by GizmoChina. As you’ll note from the image above, this looks like a MacBook Air – but don’t let that fool you just yet.

GizmoChina says that the Xiaomi notebook, powered by Linux, may cost under $500, though the specs suggest it may cost a bit more than that. The site says Xiaomi’s notebook will pack an Intel Core i7 Haswell processor, a 15-inch 1920 x 1080-pixel display and a solid 16GB of RAM. There’s no news on what sort of storage this will pack, though if it’s as thin as the picture suggests, it may have a solid state hard drive as well.

Reddit: Will you support Ubuntu Touch on its first Launch?

Wednesday 31st of December 2014 11:43:52 PM

The Bq Aquaris e4.5 with Ubuntu Touch preinstalled will be sold during the 2nd week of February. I am planning to buy it, even though I already to have a hell of a phone(LG G3) because it's better than any other phone OS on the planet. But not because of it's interface, it's because of its openness and expandibility. Something neither Android nor Jolla can say about themselves. I will support Ubuntu Touch, will you?

Rising above all of the systemd controversies and in-fighting this year, systemd developers remained committed and did a heck of a job at adding code to the project.

As some complementary development statistics for systemd focused on 2014 to yesterday's lead developers of systemd article, I ran GitStats this morning on the latest end-of-year systemd mainline Git repository. The numbers speak for themselves and systemd grew significantly this year.

Open-source development of Pirate Bay replacement could make site immune to police takedown

Online torrent repository IsoHunt has launched a $100,000 (£66,000) competition to encourage open-source development of The Old Pirate Bay, the popular torrent site set up in the wake of The Pirate Bay's shutdown. The unprecedented move to offer prize money will mean that an open-source community will be responsible for developing the site rather than a closed team, therefore making the site more difficult to take down.

Real-time enabled Sitara SoC shows up on a COM

Variscite unveiled a Linux-friendly, SODIMM-style COM based on TI’s Sitara AM437x, supporting the updated SoC’s quad-core Programmable Real-time Unit (PRU). The VAR-SOM-AM43 is the first computer-on-module we’ve seen to use the Texas Instruments Sitara AM437x, a single-core Cortex-A9 system-on-chip that clocks to 1GHz. Last month, Adeneo announced an Android 4.4 BSP for TI’s Sitara AM437x development platform. Variscite is supporting its VAR-SOM-AM43 with a Yocto Linux, and soon, Android-ready hardware/software development kit of its own, which includes a VAR-AM43 CustomBoard development board, touchscreens, cables, and more Read more

High-end 'upstream' Linux laptop plans to ship in April

They said in working up hardware, they carefully designed the laptop "chip by chip" to work with open source software. The 4.4-pound laptop runs Linux. This is a GNU-based distribution, more specifically, the Trisquel GNU/Linux, "the strictest of distributions and strips all binary blobs from the Linux kernel." At the same time, they said laptop owners, if they want, can easily install anything less strict, such as Debian and Ubuntu. The machine has a 15.6" display in either 1920x1080 or 3840x2160 with a 60Hz refresh rate, 720p camera and HD Audio. It has a CD/DVD ROM drive. They used Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200.
