Reddit: Weird Linux?

Monday 28th of August 2017 12:35:51 PM

Is this feller deliberately trying to discredit Linux by associating it with some random Internet weirdo? Doing the video presentation while munching on jam and toast was taking the piss a little too far, jam and toast must be a delicacy where's he from :)

Seriously, anyone looking on Youtube for Linux tutorials and comes across this and what'll they think: yep thought so, Linux users a bunch of weirdos !

At that time we learned Intel developers were also planning improvements too for LLVM with newer Haswell / Broadwell / Skylake / Skylake-X CPUs. Improvements have now landed for Haswell...

LXer: Overclock Your Radeon GPU With AMDGPU

Monday 28th of August 2017 09:36:40 AM
The open source AMDGPU drivers don't have a fancy GUI interface that lets you overclock your card. Actually, they don't come with any kind of control center at all. That's alright, though, you can still overclock your card by modifying a couple of values in configuration files, a perfectly Linux solution if you think about it.

TuxMachines: Open source success starts at zero

Monday 28th of August 2017 08:40:30 AM

This has applicability in a lot of different areas in life. For example, I use it in my volunteer efforts with Cal Fire, where integrating as part of an overall team effort in fire prevention and firefighting is required to get the job done.

Here are concrete ways you can aim to be a zero in an open source project, with your eye toward making +1 contributions in the future.

LXer: Monitoring Linux performance with Grafana

Monday 28th of August 2017 08:16:37 AM
I've spent a bit of time setting up Linux (in my case, CentOS) as a home router due to frustrations with home routers available on the market. This was both a good exercise and a bit of nostalgia from my early days with Linux. Once I'd finished getting the basics set up, I wanted a way to track various statistics, such as network traffic, disk usage, etc. The venerable Cacti is certainly an option, but that's feeling a bit legacy these days.read more

TuxMachines: Purism's Librem 5, Jolla's Sailfish OS for Sony Xperia X, NVIDIA's Jetson TX1 Developer Board

Monday 28th of August 2017 07:51:41 AM
  • Purism's Librem 5 Is Nearing $100k In Funding, But A Long Journey Remains

    This week Purism announced their plans for the Librem 5 smart-phone as a GNU/Linux smartphone that is privacy-respecting, as open as possible, and costs $599 USD. The company believes they can have the phone ready for release by early 2019 if they raise $1.5 million USD over the next two months. In just about three days they have raised nearly $100,000, but it's not clear if the pacing will continue to reach the milestone in time.

    As of writing this morning, they have raised $93,994 USD since their announcement on Thursday. This includes 134 backers sending in $599 USD to effectively pre-order the device, just six sending in $299 USD for the developer kit, two sending in $1399 for getting the Librem 5 phone with a 24-inch monitor, and four pledging $1699 USD to get the Librem 5 phone with an unnamed 30-inch monitor.

  • Did SUSE Linux Just Take a Dig at Red Hat Linux?

    I am a huge fan of SUSE Linux…. parody videos. I even call SUSE the coolest Linux enterprise for the awesome Linux parody songs they make. I mean, who can forget the catchy Uptime Funk. Even today I sing ‘don’t reboot it just patch’.

XFree KWin, Plasma, KDE, and Qt/GTK

  • Announcing the XFree KWin project
    Over the last weeks I concentrated my work on KWin on what I call the XFree KWin project. The idea is to be able to start KWin/Wayland without XWayland support. While most of the changes required for it are already in Plasma 5.11, not everything got ready in time, but now everything is under review on phabricator, so it’s a good point in time to talk about this project.

Development: Blockchain for Good Hackathon, ASUS Tinker Board, React License, JavaScript, Pascal, Python

  • ASUS Tinker Board Is An Interesting ARM SBC For About $60 USD
    Earlier this year ASUS announced the Tinker Board as their first step into the ARM single board computer world. Earlier this month I finally received a Tinker Board for testing and it has been quite interesting to say the least. The Tinker Board with its Rockchip SoC has been among the most competitive ARM SBCs we have tested to date in its price range and the form factor is compatible with the Raspberry Pi.

  • Facebook to Relicense React Under MIT [Ed: as we hoped [1, 2]]
    Facebook has decided to change the React license from BSD+Patents to MIT to make it possible for companies to include React in Apache projects, and to avoid uncertain relationship with the open source community. Adam Wolff, an Engineering Director at Facebook, has announced that a number of projects - React, Jest, Flow, and Immutable.js – will soon start using the more standard MIT License instead of BSD+Patents. The reason provided is "because React is the foundation of a broad ecosystem of open source software for the web, and we don't want to hold back forward progress for nontechnical reasons." While aware that the React’s BSD+Patents license has created "uncertainty" among users of the library, prompting some to select an alternative solution, Facebook does not "expect to win these teams back" but they still hope some will reconsider the issue. The change in license will become effective when React 16 will be released next week. Regarding other projects, Wolff said that "many of our popular projects will keep the BSD + Patents license for now", while they are "evaluating those projects' licenses too, but each project is different and alternative licensing options will depend on a variety of factors." It seems from this clause that Facebook plans to get rid of the BSD+Patents license entirely, but they need to figure out the best option for each project. [...] Facebook’s plan to switch to a standard license MIT, supported by Apache, completely solves this problem with React and several other projects. It remains to see what happens with the license of other Facebook projects, and how much this license issue has affected how React is perceived by the community.
