Reddit: netstat not showing port listening?

Wednesday 31st of August 2016 12:48:20 PM

Why is netstat not showing that a process is listening on port 80 in ipv4, while lsof clear shows it:


# lsof -P -i:80 COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME httpd 764 root 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 796 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 817 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 1943 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2124 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2229 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2272 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2300 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2315 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2682 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN) httpd 2685 apache 4u IPv6 20562 0t0 TCP *:80 (LISTEN)

TuxMachines: Salix 14.2 Xfce Edition Officially Released Based on Slackware 14.2, Xfce 4.12

Wednesday 31st of August 2016 10:59:28 AM

After being in development for the past three months, the Salix 14.2 Xfce Edition operating system has finally hit the stable channels, and it is now available for download.

Based on the Slackware 14.2 GNU/Linux distribution and built around the lightweight and highly customizable Xfce 4.12 desktop environment, Salix 14.2 Xfce Edition ships with numerous improvements and new features that some of you who managed to test-drive the Beta and Release Candidate pre-releases are already accustomed with. Of course, many of the core components and default applications have been updated to their latest versions.

TuxMachines: GNOME Control Center 3.22 to Update the Keyboard Settings, Improve Networking

Wednesday 31st of August 2016 10:51:50 AM

The upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment is still in the works, and a first Beta build was seeded to public beta testers last week, bringing multiple enhancements and new features to most of its core components and apps.

While GNOME 3.22 Beta was announced on August 22, it appears that the maintainers of certain core packages needed a little more time to work on various improvements and polish their applications before they were suitable for public testing. And this is the case of GNOME Control Center, which was recently updated to version 3.21.90, which means 3.22 Beta.

  • RadeonSI Gets Another OpenGL 4.5 Extension: ARB_cull_distance
  • GCN 1.0 / Southern Islands On AMDGPU Takes Another Step Forward
  • Testing The Open-Source "RADV" Radeon Vulkan Driver vs. AMDGPU-PRO

    With word coming out last week that the RADV open-source Vulkan driver can now render Dota 2 correctly, I've been running some tests the past few days of this RADV Vulkan driver compared to AMD's official (but currently closed-source) Vulkan driver bundled with the AMDGPU-PRO Vulkan driver.

  • Keyboard Grabbing Protocol Proposed For Wayland
  • Wayland 1.12 Beta Released

    Bryce Harrington announced the release today of Wayland 1.12 beta and the associated Wayland compositor update.

    Ahead of next month's official Wayland/Weston 1.12 debut, version 1.11.92 was released today. The Wayland 1.12 beta has no new changes over the earlier alpha while Weston has some shell fixes, dropping shell_interface from libweston, and a DRM compositor change. The bare release announcements can be found here.

  • New xserver driver sort order - evdev < libinput < (synaptics|wacom|...)

    In the X server, the input driver assignment is handled by xorg.conf.d snippets. Each driver assigns itself to the type of devices it can handle and the driver that actually loaded is simply the one that sorts last. Historically, we've had the evdev driver sort low and assign itself to everything. synaptics, wacom and the other few drivers that matter sorted higher than evdev and thus assigned themselves to the respective device.

    When xf86-input-libinput first came out 2 years ago, we used a higher sort order than all other drivers to assign it to (almost) all devices. This was of course intentional because we believe that libinput is the best input stack around, the odd bug non-withstanding. Now it has matured a fair bit and we had a lot more exposure to various types of hardware. We've been quirking and fixing things like crazy and libinput is much better for it.

TuxMachines: ​Starting with Linux in the early days

Wednesday 31st of August 2016 10:02:58 AM

In 1991, I was already an experienced Unix sysadmin and writer. I'm sure I saw Linus Torvalds's famous Usenet message: "I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones," and I paid it no mind. Many people said similar things and little came of it. This time, it would be different.

  • The RADV Radeon Vulkan Linux Driver Continues Picking Up Features
  • OpenChrome Maintainer Making Some Progress On VIA DRM Driver
    Independent developer Kevin Brace took over maintaining the OpenChrome DDX driver earlier this year to improve the open-source VIA Linux graphics support while over the summer he's slowly been getting up to speed on development of the OpenChrome DRM driver. The OpenChrome DRM driver was making progress while James Simmons was developing it a few years back, but since he left the project, it's been left to bit rot. It will take a lot of work even to get this previously "good" code back to working on the latest Linux 4.x mainline kernels given how DRM core interfaces have evolved in recent times.
  • My talk about Mainline Explicit Fencing at XDC 2016!
    Last week I was at XDC in Helsinki where I presented about the Explicit Fencing work we’ve been doing on the Mainline Linux Kernel in the lastest few months. There was a livestream of all presentations during the conference and recorded sections are available. You can check the video of my presentation. Check out the slides too.

Linux Kernel News

  • Linux 4.8 gets rc8
    Chill, penguin-fanciers: Linux lord Linus Torvalds is sitting on the egg that is Linux 4.8 for another week. As Torvalds indicated last week, this version of the kernel still needs work and therefore earned itself an eighth release candidate.
  • Linux 4.8-rc8 Released: Linux 4.8 Next Weekend
  • Linux Kernel 4.7.5 Released with Numerous ARM and Networking Improvements
    The fifth maintenance update to the Linux 4.7 kernel series, which is currently the most advanced, secure and stable kernel branch you can get for your GNU/Linux operating system, has been announced by Greg Kroah-Hartman. Linux kernel 4.7.5 is here only ten days after the release of the previous maintenance version, namely Linux kernel 4.7.4, and it's a big update that changes a total of 213 files, with 1774 insertions and 971 deletions, which tells us that the kernel developers and hackers had a pretty busy week patching all sorts of bugs and security issues, as well as to add various, much-needed improvements.
  • Blockchain Summit Day Two: End-Of-Conference Highlights From Shanghai
    Financial services firms and startups looking to be the bridge to blockchain ledgers continued to dominate presentations on the second and final day of the Blockchain Summit, ending International Blockchain Week in Shanghai that also saw Devcon2 and a startup demo competition.
  • Testing Various HDDs & SSDs On Ubuntu With The Linux 4.8 Kernel
    Here are some fresh benchmarks of various solid-state drives (SATA 3.0 SSDs plus two NVMe M.2 SSDs) as well as two HDDs for getting a fresh look at how they are performing using the Linux 4.8 Git kernel. After publishing Friday's Intel 600P Series NVME SSD tests of this lower-cost NVM Express storage line-up, I continued testing a few other SSDs and HDDs. These additional reference points are available for your viewing pleasure today. The additional data is also going to be used for reference in a Linux 4.8-based BCache SSD+HDD comparison being published next week. Stay tuned for those fresh BCache numbers.

Behind the GNOME 3.22 Release Video

This is less than usual. The time saving mostly stems from spending less time recording for the release video. At first thought you might think recording would be a breeze but it can be one of the most frustrating aspects of making the videos. Each cycle the GNOME community lands improvement a wide set of GNOME’s applications. So before each release I have to find some way to run a dozen of applications from master. I do this either by: Read more
