TuxMachines: Linux-based mobile access router features Cisco 5921 ESR

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 04:00:08 PM

Eurotech’s rugged, Linux-driven “BoltMAR 20-11” mobile access router offers Cisco 5921 ESR software, dual Ethernet ports, and WiFi, GPS, and cellular links.

As we write this, rescuers continue to ply the flooded streets of Houston looking for survivors of Hurricane Harvey. It occurs to us that Eurotech’s BoltMAR 20-11 might come in very handy in such a situation. Designed to showcase the Linux-driven Cisco 5921 Embedded Services Router(ESR) software, this entry-level, EN50155-compliant Mobile Access Router (MAR) “allows field-proven Cisco internetworking to be extended to enterprise fleet applications in the harshest mobile environments,” says Eurotech.

TuxMachines: Hands-on with Raspbian GNU/Linux Stretch for Raspberry Pi

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 03:57:40 PM

Well, isn't that just the way things go? I go away for a week (bicycling in northeast Holland, very nice) and a new release of Raspbian for the Raspberry Pi is announced. I shouldn't complain, though, because it gives me something to do as I adjust to my new life as an OAP.

The Raspbian GNU/Linux operating system for all models of Raspberry Pi systems has recently been updated, bringing the base to the recently released Debian 9 Stretch. The release announcement on the Raspberry Pi Blog gives a general overview, focusing mainly on application updates, and refers to the Debian 9 release notes for details about changes in the operating system itself.

LXer: Today is a Good Day to Learn Python

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 03:49:28 PM
The cool thing about Linux and FOSS is also an aggravating thing, which is that sometimes there's too much of a good thing. There is such an abundance of goodies that it can be overwhelming. So I am here to help you decide which programming language you should learn next, and that is Python. Oh, yes, it is.

Reddit: Ryzen, RAM, MOBO, Hell^H^H^H^H Help Please.

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 02:56:25 PM

I have been teetering on the brink of a ryzen upgrade to my aging PC for a few months now but the linux horror stories (probably blown out of proportion) are making me hesitate.

Can anyone give personal experience with linux on ryzen 7 and ddr4 3200 ram?

So far my plans are for a gigabyte mobo, and team t-force ddr4 3200. All I care about is stability, even if it means I underclock my ram until everything settles out.

Any and all thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Reddit: How to print without drivers in most cases

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 11:45:56 AM

If your printer is networked and has port 9100 open, you can probably send PostScript to it and have it print. For example:

nc printer 9100 < test.ps

You may need to kill nc with Control+C with some printers. (not tested well, had to with mine)

If you use LaTex, run latex file.tex; dvips file.dvi to make a PostScript file from your sources.

pdf2ps file.pdf file.ps works for PDF file conversion too.

Today, new storage system interfaces are created regularly to resolve emerging challenges in distributed storage. For example, Amazon Simple Storage Service [S3] (an opaque object store) and Amazon Elastic Block Storage [EBS] (a virtual machine image provider) both provide an essential, scalable storage service within a cloud ecosystem; however even with these new technologies, the conventional file system remains the most-widely used storage interface in computing.

Baidu puts open source deep learning into smartphones

A year after it open sourced its PaddlePaddle deep learning suite, Baidu has dropped another piece of AI tech into the public domain – a project to put AI on smartphones. Mobile Deep Learning (MDL) landed at GitHub under the MIT license a day ago, along with the exhortation “Be all eagerness to see it”. MDL is a convolution-based neural network designed to fit on a mobile device. Baidu said it is suitable for applications such as recognising objects in an image using a smartphone's camera.

AMD and Linux Kernel

  • Ataribox runs Linux on AMD chip and will cost at least $250
    Atari released more details about its Ataribox game console today, disclosing for the first time that the machine will run Linux on an Advanced Micro Devices processor and cost $250 to $300. In an exclusive interview last week with GamesBeat, Ataribox creator and general manager Feargal Mac (short for Mac Conuladh) said Atari will begin a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo this fall and launch the Ataribox in the spring of 2018. The Ataribox will launch with a large back catalog of the publisher’s classic games. The idea is to create a box that makes people feel nostalgic about the past, but it’s also capable of running the independent games they want to play today, like Minecraft or Terraria.
  • Linux 4.14 + ROCm Might End Up Working Out For Kaveri & Carrizo APUs
    It looks like the upstream Linux 4.14 kernel may end up playing nicely with the ROCm OpenCL compute stack, if you are on a Kaveri or Carrizo system. While ROCm is promising as AMD's open-source compute stack complete with OpenCL 1.2+ support, its downside is that for now not all of the necessary changes to the Linux kernel drivers, LLVM Clang compiler infrastructure, and other components are yet living in their upstream repositories. So for now it can be a bit hairy to setup ROCm compute on your own system, especially if running a distribution without official ROCm packages. AMD developers are working to get all their changes upstreamed in each of the respective sources, but it's not something that will happen overnight and given the nature of Linux kernel development, etc, is something that will still take months longer to complete.
  • Latest Linux kernel release candidate was a sticky mess
    Linus Torvalds is not noted as having the most even of tempers, but after a weekend spent scuba diving a glitch in the latest Linux kernel release candidate saw the Linux overlord merely label the mess "nasty". The release cycle was following its usual cadence when Torvalds announced Linux 4.14 release candidate 2, just after 5:00PM on Sunday, September 24th.
  • Linus Torvalds Announces the Second Release Candidate of Linux Kernel 4.14 LTS
    Development of the Linux 4.14 kernel series continues with the second Release Candidate (RC) milestone, which Linus Torvalds himself announces this past weekend. The update brings more updated drivers and various improvements. Linus Torvalds kicked off the development of Linux kernel 4.14 last week when he announced the first Release Candidate, and now the second RC is available packed full of goodies. These include updated networking, GPU, and RDMA drivers, improvements to the x86, ARM, PowerPC, PA-RISC, MIPS, and s390 hardware architectures, various core networking, filesystem, and documentation changes.
