TuxMachines: Setting ssh keys for Raspberry Pi's and Beagle Bones without keyboard and display

Friday 13th of March 2015 05:49:54 PM

If you run several little devices like Raspberry Pi's or Beagle Bones as headless servers for home automation, setting up ssh for each of them can be a real hassle: you need to find a keyboard and a monitor, log into the console, ftp the ssh keys and save them in the right place, and then disconnect, and do it again for the next device.

TuxMachines: Algorithmia aims to be the open source app store for algorithms and APIs

Friday 13th of March 2015 05:11:46 PM

A startup fresh out of private beta offers a three-way intersection between machine learning, the API economy, and open source developers' need to monetize their creations.

Algorithmia, which launched privately last year, allows users to build algorithms, make them available as a Web service, and monetize them.

The service can be used in two basic ways: either by calling algorithms available in the system via its REST API (with examples provided), or by writing and submitting the algorithms to be used. Each algorithm has its own interactive console page, so they can be tried out directly on the Web without needing to write and implement code. Many of the algorithms are original creations; others are implementations of existing software, such as a tokenizer based on Apache OpenNLP.

Reddit: degree mode in bc?

Friday 13th of March 2015 09:50:01 AM

Hi, I'm hoping this is a place one can get help on a linux topic. It took me long enough to find that the sine funciton is written as s(x), but how can get it to work with degrees instead of radians? Do I have to do the conversions myself?

Thanks in advance.

TuxMachines: Open source offline map tool for Android

Friday 13th of March 2015 01:12:29 AM

To realize the full potential of location-based smartphone apps, they should be built to support offline mode and original map graphics. Creating a custom offline map is the best choice. We were faced with this challenge as well, and the solution we came up with was creating a separate library for this purpose. That is how I developed the m​AppWidget code library.​

We recently decided to open source it, and now mAppWidget is available to anyone in need of a mobile custom offline map solution.

TuxMachines: Red Hat partners with Docker to create Linux/Docker software stack

Thursday 12th of March 2015 09:15:13 PM

Much of Linux's early business success was based on the Linux, Apache, MySQL and Python/PHP/Perl (LAMP) stack. Looking ahead Red Hat and Docker is hoping that "RHELDoc," a software stack made up of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Docker containers, can do for the cloud and data center what LAMP did for servers.

The two are doing this by launching one of the first certified, end­-to-­end ecosystem programs for Linux containers based on Docker. This follows up on Red Hat's earlier announcement in March of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Atomic Host (RHELAH). This program integrated RHEL and Docker.

Jessie Release Date: 2015-04-25

We now have a target release date of Saturday the 25th of April. We have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 8 - "Jessie". The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend. Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before then. Read more
