  • A Number Of KDE Apps Will Be Dropped If They Don't Get Ported To KF5

    Around three dozen apps from the KDE Applications suite could be dropped if they don't see a port from kdelibs4 to KDE Frameworks 5 within the next year.

    A proposal laid out yesterday would make next summer's KDE Applications 17.08 release be the last to allow applications based on kdelibs4. After that, kdelibs4 applications would not be permitted given that KDE Frameworks 5 has already been around for a while and KDE4 is no longer maintained. In other words, there's just about one year to port the relevant applications to KF5 by interested developers otherwise they will not be present in KDE Applications 17.12.

  • November is Bugsquash month – Open Source Aalborg is joining

    Me and my friend Daniel from Open Source Aalborg will arrange that the local participants from the open source group in Aalborg will join in on the final bug squashing day, November the 30th. OS Aalborg has recently joined a lot of Capture the flag’s and I think we will try to put up some very basic infrastructure (read google forms + spreadsheet) to do something similar for the GNOME Bug Squashing initiative.

  • b2k16 hackathon report: Antoine Jacoutot on GNOME's path forward, various ports progress

    First task of this hackathon was for Jasper and I to upgrade to GNOME 3.22.1 (version 3.22.2 hit the ports tree since). As usual I already updated the core libraries a few days before so that we could start with a nice set of fully updated packages. It ended up being the fastest GNOME update ever, it all went very smoothly. We're still debating the future of GNOME on OpenBSD though. More and more features require systemd interfaces and without a replacement it may not make sense to keep it around. Implementing these interfaces requires time which Jasper and I don't really have these days... Anyway, we'll see.

  • How Docker changes application monitoring

    As operations, IT, and engineering organizations coalesce around the value and importance of containers, they often ask the seemingly logical question: “How do I monitor Docker in my production environment?” As it turns out, this question has it backward. Monitoring the Docker daemon, the Kubernetes master, or the Mesos scheduler isn’t especially complicated, and there are, in fact, solutions for each of these.

    Running your applications in Docker containers only changes how the applications are packaged, scheduled, and orchestrated, not how they actually run. The question, properly rephrased, becomes, “How does Docker change how I monitor my applications?” As you might imagine, the answer to this question: “It depends.”

    The answer will be dictated by the dependencies of your environment and your use cases and objectives. The orchestration technology you use, the Docker image philosophy you follow, and the level of observability your containerized application provides, among other considerations, will all factor into how you monitor your applications.

    To begin to understand how a microservices regimen and a Dockerized environment will affect your monitoring strategy, ask yourself the following four simple questions. Note that the answers may differ for different applications, and your approach to monitoring should reflect these differences.

TuxMachines: Red Hat and Fedora

  • Updating Nagios in EPEL-7 (Looking for Testers)

    One of the projects on my plate this year is to update the Fedora Project nagios server so that monitoring is done through a better template system in ansible. [The main reasons for using nagios versus going to another system are the following: a) We already have nagios in place and have used it for years, it doesn't use/need a database backend for either its webpages or monitoring systems, c) before I can compare other systems I need an updated version of nagios to know what features we would get.]

  • The digital revolution’s hidden secret: Open-source cloud software

    Buried deep within the heart of the digital revolution is a hidden secret. This secret is open-source software. Open-source software has been key to the transformation of business because it is low-cost, often free, and easy for a young company to modify and deploy. Because of these strong points, open-source software has produced powerful technologies for modern enterprise computing. To guide this explosive community, foundations have appeared, forming an alliance of businesses, startups and developers.

    To gain some insight into one such foundation, John Furrier (@furrier), co-host of theCUBE*, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, visited the KubeCon 2016 conference in Seattle, WA. There, he sat down with Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

  • Can an on-prem-cloud hybrid service solve companies’ open-source quandary?

    Companies wanting to stay on tech’s bleeding edge face a bit of a quandary these days: Most agree that the latest, greatest software is happening in open source; however, the job of curating and operating it is too messy for the IT teams at most businesses. We spoke with one startup co-founder who believes they’ve found a way to serve open-source innovation to customers without choking them with complexity.

    Bich Le, chief architect and co-founder of Platform9, started the company with some fellow VMware alumni. “The opportunity that we saw was open-source software was getting amazing and ruling the world, especially in the infrastructure space for running compute, storage, networking — but what’s defining this software is it’s very complex to operate,” Le told John Furrier (@furrier), host of theCUBE*, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, during KubeCon 2016.

  • Kubernetes and the open-source, cloud-native evolution

    As the movement to further the education and advancement of Docker, Kubernetes and Cloud-Native architectures continues to grow, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation hosted KubeCon 2016 in Seattle, WA, this week to gather leading Kubernetes technologists from multiple open-source cloud-native communities.

    During the event, Jim Walker, VP of Marketing at CoreOS Inc., and Joseph Jacks, senior director of Product Management at Apprenda Inc., spoke to John Furrier (@furrier), co-host of theCUBE*, from the SiliconANGLE Media team. KubeCon is a biannual community conference dedicated to Kubernetes, the open-source container cluster management software project by Google.

    Walker and Jacks spoke to Furrier about what’s going on at KubeCon, as well as in cloud-native and open source as it evolves.

  • Anatomy of a Chrome for Android bug: the mixed-up world of mobile browsers

    Security researchers at Kaspersky recently wrote about various Android attacks featuring malware known as Svpeng.

    Svpeng is a whole family of data-stealing and banking-related threats, so this is more than just what Google might glibly try to label Potentially Harmful Software: it’s malware, and you definitely don’t want it near your phone.

  • There are 2 Billion active Chrome browsers across mobile and desktop

    Chrome is installed by default on all Android devices that come from Google's partners as well as all Chromebook computers. That probably accounts to a lot of devices, without taking into consideration all the Chrome browsers that users choose to install on their PCs and Macs. So it's not hard to see how the browser could now be running on billions of phones and desktops and actively used on most of them.

LXer: Sync your Fitbit on Linux with Galileo

Saturday 12th of November 2016 03:43:32 PM
If you have a Fitbit fitness device and wish to sync your device using the wireless dongle on your Linux machine, the good news is it is possible with the Bluetooth-based Fitbit devices, thanks to a small Python utility called Galileo. Note: you will need a bit of terminal-foo, but to be honest, I found the little program just as reliable if not more reliable and hassle-free than the official Fitbit apps on Android and Windows! In this short article we'll look at how to get it.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
