In networked communities:
When there's an idea, and it's a good idea, it will most probably spread.
When you implement that idea at the right time in the right way it will no doubt be superior to inferior ideas.
The rest is all details and hype. This is why Linux became the way it has become, it was simply there at the right time, in the right place.
So yes, fuck community building and just focus on the code!submitted by socium

Hello all, I asked this in /r/unix and I thought I would get the Linux side of this too, as the RHEL folks are more likely to be here than in /r/unix (I think). I was wondering if anyone has any experience with connecting Solaris to Red Hat Satellite. If so, how'd it go? Did you hit any pitfalls or have advice on things to watch out for?
According to the literature, this is doable. The documentation does claim that it isn't as "comprehensive" for UNIX, but the information on that seems to be rather vague. I know that there's going to be the question about Ops Center (Why use Satellite when Ops Center is free?), so I'm going to answer that now.
There are several reasons against Ops Center. The first is that we have a buttload of RHEL servers. I sit on a big network and have recently managed to get about 3000 servers plugged into Satellite. We paid for the ticket to ride, so we might as well use it.
Second, having everything in a unified interface would be a bonus. We have about 1500-2000 Solaris servers of various ages to connect to. Separate interfaces would be a pain.
Third (and most importantly), there's bad blood between my company and Oracle. Seems my company bought Ops Center way back when it was a pay-to-play venture. It was expensive. Shortly after buying it, Oracle released it for free. We were not reimbursed. We had 11g, no training, no support and no time (I was not on the team at this point, I should point out). Years were spent trying to get Ops Center to work properly. And those trying, failed. All that money, all that time and all that effort resulted in bupkis. The client would periodically lose its tiny mind and consume all of the server resources. All in all, the higher ups decided that Ops Center was a Very Bad Thing and mothballed it. Re-animating it would be difficult, to say the least. Even if it is free and Satellite isn't.
So, for those of you stuck in a similar situation, did you have any real issues with Satellite and Solaris? Did it work as expected? Or is it a really, really bad idea?submitted by knylok

In complementing this week's Linux review of the AMD Radeon R9 285 and follow-up articles with some extra GPU scaling tests and Catalyst AI Linux benchmarks, here's some more OpenCL R9 285 "Tonga" performance numbers under Ubuntu compared to what was shared in the original Linux review.
For those interested I ran some more OpenCL benchmarks of the Radeon R9 285 with the fglrx 14.30 series driver on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with the Linux 3.15 kernel against an assortment of other NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards as used in these recent Linux hardware reviews.
Nussbaum was, no doubt, sincere in what he said. But his remedy to avoid what has become a major issue for many Debian users can only be used for so long.
Feature-creep is a major aspect of systemd. It seems to want to take over the entire Linux system and poke its tentacles into unwanted places. And there is no better way to describe this feature than the way senior systems administrator, Craig Sanders, did recently.
I am extremely happy to announce that Qt 5.4 Beta is now available for download. There are a lot of new and interesting things in Qt 5.4 and I will try to summarize the most important highlights in this blog post.
