TuxMachines: FOSS Events: LCA and systemd.conf

Friday 29th of July 2016 05:51:18 PM
  • 5 great linux.conf.au talks (that aren't about Linux)

    linux.conf.au, otherwise known as LCA, is one of the world's longest-running open source events. LCA has been held in a different city around Australia and New Zealand almost every year since 1999. Despite the name, linux.conf.au is a generalist open source conference. LCA hasn't been just about Linux for a long time. Rather, the conference focuses on everything to do with open source: the software, hardware, and network protocols that underly it. LCA also has a strong track on free and open culture, exploring how open source interacts with science, government, and the law.

TuxMachines: Security News

  • Security advisories for Thursday
  • Please save GMane!
  • The End of Gmane?

    In 2002, I grew annoyed with not finding the obscure technical information I was looking for, so I started Gmane, the mailing list archive. All technical discussion took place on mailing lists those days, and archiving those were, at best, spotty and with horrible web interfaces.

    The past few weeks, the Gmane machines (and more importantly, the company I work for, who are graciously hosting the servers) have been the target of a number of distributed denial of service attacks. Our upstream have been good about helping us filter out the DDoS traffic, but it’s meant serious downtime where we’ve been completely off the Internet.

  • Pwnie Express makes IoT, Android security arsenal open source

    Pwnie Express has given the keys to software used to secure the Internet of Things (IoT) and Android software to the open-source community.

    The Internet of Things (IoT), the emergence of devices ranging from lighting to fridges and embedded systems which are connected to the web, has paved an avenue for cyberattackers to exploit.

  • The Software Supply Chain Is Bedeviled by Bad Open-Source Code [Ed: again, trace this back to FUD firms like Sonatype in this case]

    Open-source components play a key role in the software supply chain. By reducing the amount of code that development organizations need to write, open source enables companies to deliver software more efficiently — but not without significant risks, including defective and outdated components and security vulnerabilities.

  • Google tells Android's Linux kernel to toughen up and fight off those horrible hacker bullies

    In a blog post, Jeff Vander Stoep of the mobile operating system's security team said that in the next build of the OS, named Nougat, Google is going to be addressing two key areas of the Linux kernel that reside at the heart of most of the world's smartphones: memory protection and reducing areas available for attack by hackers.

TuxMachines: Chew on this: Ubuntu Core Linux comes to the uCRobotics Bubblegum-96 board

Friday 29th of July 2016 05:25:36 PM

Linux and other open source software have been in the news quite a bit lately. As more and more people are seeing, closed source is not the only way to make money. A company like Red Hat, for instance, is able to be profitable while focusing its business on open source.

Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux-based operating systems, and it is not hard to see why. Not only is it easy to use and adaptable to much hardware (such as SoC boards), but there is a ton of free support online from the Ubuntu user community too. Today, Canonical announces a special Ubuntu Core image for the uCRobotics Bubblegum-96 board.

TuxMachines: Homegrown Budgie Desktop Shows Off the Beauty - and Beastliness - of Solus Simplicity

Friday 29th of July 2016 05:16:02 PM

The Budgie desktop -- and thus Solus itself -- lacks the glitz and glitter found in more seasoned desktop environments. Animation is nonexistent. It also lacks any right-click menu finesse other than the ability to change background or settings.

The Solus Project's distro is very user-friendly, but experienced Linux users will need more optimized software and desktop functionality in the next release to be tempted to give up more advanced desktop flavors.

    From Polish developers Home Net Games it features pretty nice visuals, but I am doing my usual wait and see approach on their funding method. Hopefully it won't be pay to win malarkey. Looking at their website, it looks like it's already a mobile game that is now being pushed onto PC. Hopefully they won't make the same mistake a lot of developers do and keep the mobile feel to it.

Ubuntu Founder Sets the Bar for Successful OpenStack Implementations

The real long-term test of any large-scale, modern infrastructure is an economic one, according to Ubuntu creator Mark Shuttleworth. Shuttleworth, who serves as an advisor to Canonical, the open-source software company that delivers Ubuntu, said today at OpenStack East 2016 that the biggest driver of economics in the cloud will be operations, particularly how many processes a team can operate using OpenStack.
