Reddit: pcie wifi card recommendations

Wednesday 3rd of August 2016 12:29:44 AM

I currently do not have ethernet in different rooms and I would like to move my media server out of my office because of heat and a little bit of noise.

Any recommendations on pcie wifi cards?

Reddit: I'm using Fedora with Cinnamon DE. What would be the differences if I switched to Linux Mint?

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 11:56:28 PM

Fedora's default desktop environment is GNOME 3, but I'm right now using Cinnamon, which is the Mint's default.

For me, a developer wanting a Linux distro as a day-a-day used desktop and not really a server, would there be any significant change to the system's usability, performance, etc apart from some different small things like Fedora using DNF and Mint using APT?

LXer: Sparkling Water: Bridging Open Source Machine Learning and Apache Spark

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 11:21:51 PM
Although many people have experience with the fields of machine learning and artificial intelligence through applications in their pockets, such as Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana, the scope of this technology extends well beyond the smartphone. H2O.ai, formerly known as Oxdata, has carved out a unique niche in the machine learning and artificial intelligence arena because its primary tools are free and open source, and because it is connecting its tools to other widely used data analytics tools.

Reddit: Creating Linux Desktop Applications

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 10:50:30 PM

Hello Reddit! I apologize if this is in the wrong subreddit, I'm still getting used to Reddit. I'm new to Linux, and programming, but I really want to try and make some basic stuff for Linux. I know how to code, but I don't know what is out there for Linux. What are the most commonly used programming languages for Linux and what is used to create GUI for the applications? Sorry if this is a stupid question or I used the wrong terminology. As I said, I'm pretty new, although I have an idea of what I'm doing once I get started.

Reddit: Caja (and other file managers) supports tabs???!!!!

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 10:27:40 PM

Just opened the computer and hit CTRL + T to open a new Firefox window. Focus wasn't on the browser, but Caja (file explorer).

A new tab opened all right. Just not where I was expecting.

This is cool!

Reddit: Dear Mods: Thanks

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 09:46:11 PM

I posted a question that didn't belong in this sub. Instead of deleting it right away, the post was left up for a few hours and some kind users gave me multiple working solutions to my question. Then the mods deleted it.

Thank you for being lenient and not super aggressive!

LXer: IBM's Wager on Open Source Is Still Paying Off

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016 09:27:29 PM
When IBM got involved with the Linux open source project in 1998, they were betting that giving their code and time to the community would be a worthwhile investment. Now, 18 years later, IBM is more involved than ever, with more than 62,000 employees trained and expected to contribute to open source projects, according to Todd Moore, Vice President of Open Technology at IBM, speaking at ApacheCon in May.

  • RcppGetconf 0.0.2

    A first update for the recent RcppGetconf package for reading system configuration --- not unlike getconf from the libc library --- is now out. Almost immediately after I tweeted / blogged asking for help with OS X builds, fellow Rcpp hacker Qiang Kou created a clever pull request allowing for exactly that. So now we cover two POSIX systems that matter most these days --- Linux and OS X --- but as there are more out there, please do try, test and send those pull requests.

  • 3 graphical tools for Git

    In this article, we'll take a look at some convenience add-ons to help you integrate Git comfortably into your everyday workflow.

    I learned Git before many of these fancy interfaces existed, and my workflow is frequently text-based anyway, so most of the inbuilt conveniences of Git suit me pretty well. It is always best, in my opinion, to understand how Git works natively. However, it is always nice to have options, so these are some of the ways you can start using Git outside of the terminal.

  • Are Open Source Applications Your Best Option?

    That's because one of the major attractions of open source software is that you're not stuck with the features it comes with. Instead of paying a corporation a license fee for the product it chooses to offer you, you can pay a developer to take the open source code and add exactly the features you need so the result meets your requirements exactly.

    That's the theory anyway, but it's important to remember that software choice is not always about features and there are certain applications for which open source software may be the wrong choice.

  • Light Reading's Upskill University Kicks Off Open Source Classes

    Upskill U, a free online forum that focuses on delivering must-have education on the overall business transformation occurring in the telecommunications industry, is focusing its next round of lectures on the role of open source in communications network transformation. During these courses, lecturers from LinkedIn, OpenDaylight, Telstra and Heavy Reading will examine how telecom is addressing the challenges and opportunities service providers face as they seek to successfully implement open source software as the network moves more toward virtualization.

  • Ninth : Implementation of my API on the daemon
  • Tenth : SmartInfo is alive!

    This week, I worked on the gnome client. I wanted to link my right click menu with the call view. That’s was difficult because the right click menu is called by a signal. So, I didn’t have access to the instance of the menu to send my own signal. I tried a lot of things to implement my signal, but it’s just impossible. Then I discovered the GAction. With this technique, I just needed to change the state of my action and connect it with my method in my view and it’s done!

Opera Data Breach, Security of Personal Data

  • Opera User? Your Stored Passwords May Have Been Stolen
    Barely a week passes without another well-known web company suffering a data breach or hack of some kind. This week it is Opera’s turn. Opera Software, the company behind the web-browser and recently sold to a Chinese consortium for $600 million, reported a ‘server breach incident’ on its blog this weekend.
  • When it comes to protecting personal data, security gurus make their own rules
    Marcin Kleczynski, CEO of a company devoted to protecting people from hackers, has safeguarded his Twitter account with a 14-character password and by turning on two-factor authentication, an extra precaution in case that password is cracked. But Cooper Quintin, a security researcher and chief technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, doesn’t bother running an anti-virus program on his computer. And Bruce Schneier? The prominent cryptography expert and chief technology officer of IBM-owned security company Resilient Systems, won’t even risk talking about what he does to secure his devices and data.

  • On speaking at community conferences
    Many people reading this have already suffered me talking to them about Prometheus. In personal conversation, or in the talks I gave at DebConf15 in Heidelberg, the Debian SunCamp in Lloret de Mar, BRMlab in Prague, and even at a talk on a different topic at the RABS in Cluj-Napoca.
  • TPM Microconference Accepted into LPC 2016
    Although trusted platform modules (TPMs) have been the subject of some controversy over the years, it is quite likely that they have important roles to play in preventing firmware-based attacks, protecting user keys, and so on. However, some work is required to enable TPMs to successfully play these roles, including getting TPM support into bootloaders, securely distributing known-good hashes, and providing robust and repeatable handling of upgrades. In short, given the ever-more-hostile environments that our systems must operate in, it seems quite likely that much help will be needed, including from TPMs. For more details, see the TPM Microconference wiki page.
  • More translations added to the SFD countdown
    Software Freedom Day is celebrated all around the world and as usual our community helps us to provide marketing materials in their specific languages. While the wiki is rather simple to translate, the Countdown remains a bit more complicated and time consuming to localize. One needs to edit the SVG file and generate roughly a 100 pictures, then upload them to the wiki. Still this doesn’t scare the SFD teams around the world and we are happy to announce three more languages are ready to be used: French, Chinese and German!
