TuxMachines: GNU/Linux on Devices: RasnAnd, WinSystems, and Cincoze

Tuesday 24th of October 2017 02:31:48 AM
  • RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 for Raspberry Pi 3 – Build 171019/170805 – with GAPPS, Aptoide TV and Kodi 18.0-ALPHA1 to be installed in Linux

    RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 Build 170805 can be installed in Windows using Win32 Disk Imager. This method has one disadvantage. Only about 5GB can be used as data storage no matter which card you use. I have therefore today uploaded a new version, which can be (must be) installed using a Linux system. The new system from 171019 is basically the same system as the RaspAnd system from 170805. I have only added AIDA 1.47 and replaced Google Chrome with Firefox 56.0. Kodi has been upgraded from version 17.3 to version 18.0-ALPHA1. Now say, for example, that you use Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) of 64GB about 56GB can be used as data storage. This is of course a big advantage. When you are done with partitioning of the card it shall look like the screenshot below shows. The needed partitions for RaspAnd are created with GParted in Linux.

  • RaspAnd Brings Android 7.1.2 Nougat to Your Raspberry Pi 3 with GAPPS, Kodi 18.0

    GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced the release of a new build of his commercial RasnAnd project that lets users run Google's Android mobile operating system on their Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers.

  • Rugged PC/104-Plus SBC runs Linux on a Vortex86DX3 SoC

    WinSystems has launched a rugged “PPM-C412” PC/104-Plus SBC with a dual-core Vortex86DX3, dual LAN ports, and -40 to 85°C and dual display support.

    The PPM-C412 is being promoted by Arlington, Texas based WinSystems as an upgrade path for users of the circa-2009 PPM-LX800, a PC/104-Plus SBC with a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 processor much like its circa-2008 cousin, the LPM-LX800. Like the recent WinSystems PCM-C418 PC/104 SBC, the PPM-C412 runs Linux, DOS, or other x86-based RTOSes on DMP’s x86-based, dual-core Vortex86DX3 SoC.

  • Highly modular industrial computer offers Kaby Lake or Skylake CPUs

    Cincoze’s rugged, “DX-1000” system offers 6th or 7th Gen Core and Xeon 3 chips plus triple displays, dual hot-swap SATA, 4x mini-PCIe, and other expansion.

TuxMachines: TheSSS 23.0

Tuesday 24th of October 2017 02:27:32 AM
  • TheSSS 23.0 available for download.

    This is a major release based on the 4MLinux Server 23.0, meaning that the components of the LAMP server are now: Linux 4.9.52, Apache 2.4.28, MariaDB 10.2.9, and PHP (5.6.31 and 7.0.24). Webmin has been updated to the version 1.850. Much improved support for SCSI, RAID and LVM devices is now available out of the box. And finally, the biggest change is related to the installation script, which now makes it possible to install TheSSS on ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, jfs, xfs, btrfs, and nilfs2 partitions.

  • The Smallest Server Suite Updated with Better Support for SCSI and RAID Devices

    4MLinux developer Zbigniew Konojacki‏ is informing us today on the release and immediate availability for download of version 23.0 of his TheSSS (The Smallest Server Suite) lightweight and open-source Linux OS.

    Based on the upcoming 4MLinux 23.0 operating system, TheSSS 23.0 release is here to upgrade its LAMP (Linux, Apache, MariaDB and PHP) components to new versions, and it's now powered by Linux kernel 4.9.52 LTS, Apache 2.4.28, MariaDB 10.2.9, as well as both the newer PHP 7.0.24 and the older PHP 5.6.31 for compatibility.

    The latest Webmin 1.850 web-based system configuration tool is included as well in this major release of TheSSS, which comes with an updated installation script that lets users install the Linux-based server OS on various popular file systems, including Btrfs, EXT2, EXT3, EXT4, XFS, ReiserFS, JFS, and NILFS2.

LinuxInsider: Linux Foundation Launches Open Data Licensing Agreements

Monday 23rd of October 2017 11:09:41 PM
The Linux Foundation on Monday introduced the Community Data License Agreement, a new framework for sharing large sets of data required for research, collaborative learning and other purposes. CDLAs will allow both individuals and groups to share data sets in the same way they share open source software code, the foundation said. "As systems require data to learn and evolve, no one organization can build, maintain and source all data required," noted Mike Dolan, VP of strategic programs at The Linux Foundation.

Reddit: Has anyone had issues with bluetooth on Kernel 4.13.x?

Monday 23rd of October 2017 11:05:49 PM

I've been having a lot of bluetooth issues with the newest kernel provided both by Arch and Fedora. Will, with Arch, the problem had resolved itself somehow, but since I started school, I wanted to use something I knew would be stable. I didn't want to waste time reading the Arch site to see if I had to do any manual intervention before updating. I want something that worked. I switched to Fedora, which has kernel version 4.13.5. I tried to connect my headset, but it would disconnect. While my phone was also detected, I couldn't connect to it. The issue was resolved by switching to kernel 4.11, but am I the only one with these issues?

LXer: 5 Most Beautiful Linux Desktop Environments

Monday 23rd of October 2017 10:57:59 PM
When it comes to choosing a Linux distro, one thing that influences the choices of many is the desktop environment that comes with the distros. As such, many distros provide variants with different desktop environments to cater for the specific needs of users. Some desktop environments are preferred because of their stability, or their familiarity and many others are popular because of their aesthetics. So today I present some 5 very beautiful desktop environments that you can choose from. So let’s take a look.

Reddit: Firefox vim addons (now that pentadactyl officially is borked)

Monday 23rd of October 2017 09:23:31 PM

I loved pentadactyl. It was such a good firefox addon, but alas it is no longer compatible with firefox as of version 56. So there are a bunch of other well-known vim addons for firefox, such as vimperator, vimfx, and vimium. Does anypone in here have experience with all or most of these and can give feedback about which one is worth using?

Yes, I did google this, but like many Linux questions, the answers are very old and due to programs developing and maturing at different rates, are no longer relevant to right now.

I have no experience with any of the above-mentioned addons, only pentadactyl, which no longer works.

Reddit: I wrote a script to update both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses on DynDNS

Monday 23rd of October 2017 08:03:29 PM

Maybe this will be useful to someone. I tried all of the major update clients (ddclient, inadyn, inadyn-mt) and none of them would properly update both IPv4 and IPv6 with DynDNS, so I wrote this tiny script:

#!/bin/sh HOSTNAME="" USERNAME="" CLIENTKEY="" IP4ADDR=$(curl -s http://checkip.dyndns.com | grep -o "[0-9]\{1,3\}.[0-9]\{1,3\}.[0-9]\{1,3\}.[0-9]\{1,3\}") IP6ADDR=$(curl -s http://checkipv6.dyndns.com | grep -o "[0-9a-f\:]\{8,\}") if [ "$IP4ADDR" = "" -o "$IP6ADDR" = "" ] then echo "Error: unable to determine IP address" 1>&2 exit 1 else curl -u "$USERNAME:$PASSWORD" "https://members.dyndns.org/v3/update?hostname=$HOSTNAME&myip=$IP4ADDR,$IP6ADDR" fi

Set HOSTNAME to your domain name, USERNAME to your username, and CLIENTKEY to your updater client key (you can find it on your Account Info page.) Save as dynupdate, hit it with a chmod +x dynupdate, and throw it in your cron.daily (sudo cp dynupdate /etc/cron.daily/ on Debian) or your user cron file.

This script doesn't need root privileges to run and its only dependency is curl, which comes standard on most distros.

Edit: I modified the script to throw an error if it can't determine IP address for some reason.

Standard warning: Don't run scripts you find on the Internet unless you read through them and understand what they're doing. I take no responsibility for any problems this script may cause.

Android Leftovers

OnePlus 5T review: Come for the value, not the excitement

OnePlus isn't interested in holding back on specs, features or capabilities to make a big reveal of a new phone just once a year. The scrappy company has settled in on a refresh cycle every six months, with a big release followed by a mid-cycle bump to bring in the latest things it's been working on. The OnePlus 5T isn't meant to be an innovative leap of technology that blows your socks off — and honestly, none of its predecessors have been particularly groundbreaking, either. Nope, the 5T is still about value, simplicity and being tuned for what the Android enthusiast crowd craves from its phones. At $479 there wasn't much about the OnePlus 5 you could find a flaw with. Now six months later with a bigger screen, new secondary camera, neat Face Unlock feature and a $20 price bump, it's a pretty easy equation to figure out. Read more
