RetroEngine Sigma Is a Linux-Powered Retro Games Console
A new Linux-powered retro games console wants to do for the Gameboy, SNES and Genesis, what the NES Classic has done for the NES. As a retro gamer I (quite naturally) was stoked to see the popularity that greeted the $60 Nintendo NES Classic (which, it turns out, runs Linux) last month.

The Linux Foundation released its 2017 schedule, including an Embedded Linux Conference in Portland on Feb. 21-23 that needs proposal ideas by Dec. 10.
This year, Linux Foundation events attracted over 20,000 “developers, maintainers, sysadmins, thought leaders, business executives and other industry professionals from more than 4,000 organizations across 85 countries,” and 25,000 are expected in 2017, says the not-for-profit Linux advocacy organization. In truth, the LF is now more of an open source advocacy organization as it spreads into non-Linux projects like Zephyr. Fittingly, the co-located LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen events in Japan, North America and Europe have this year combined into new umbrella events called Open Source Summits.
This is for a linux computer lab.
I have a 10TB students can use. I go through once a week and pick out everyone who is using over 50gb on their home directory and send them an email to let them know they are using a lot, and they need to get rid of at least half. There are about 40 students total using this.
It is at 99% used space. We cleared up 100gb and within 2 minutes, 4gb of that 100 gb were being used. I checkedfind / -cmin -5
And it just came up with clutter, and nothing much about what had just been put on, of from which user(s) it was from.
Any ideas? Sorry I am a bit new to linux administration.submitted by /u/ancientpsychicpug

NVIDIA Releases Linux Graphics Debugger 2.0
NVIDIA has released a major new version of their Linux Graphics Debugger for helping game developers and others wishing to optimize OpenGL 4.x workloads on a variety of Linux distributions.
Intel Iris Pro OpenGL vs. Vulkan Benchmarks With Linux 4.9, Mesa 13.1-dev
It's been a while since publishing any fresh Intel Core i7 5775C benchmarks, the socketed Broadwell CPU with Iris Pro 6200 graphics, since normally it's busy in the daily benchmarking churn of the server room for Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org / LinuxBenchmarking.com efforts. But with having been doing some maintenance on that system this week and loading a clean install of Ubuntu 16.10, I did some fresh benchmarks of the Iris Pro 6200 graphics using Mesa 13.1-dev and Linux 4.9, including a look at the OpenGL vs. Vulkan performance for the Iris Pro graphics.
Intel Skylake+ On Mesa Wires In Two More OpenGL Extensions
Intel's Mesa driver has wired in support for two more OpenGL extensions not part of an official OpenGL specification release. These two new extensions are supported for Skylake and newer.
Intel ILO Gallium3D Driver Proposed For Removal, But Could Have Future Use-Cases
Mesa developers are discussing the idea of removing the Intel "ILO" Gallium3D driver from Mesa since it hasn't been maintained in a while and provides only limited functionality.
ILO is the Intel Gallium3D driver that was developed at LunarG Inc and was promising a few years ago with Ivy Bridge and Haswell era hardware. LunarG was using ILO for experimenting with Gallium3D and different driver approaches. But ILO hasn't been maintained in quite a while now while LunarG has since changed too.
AMD working on an updated driver that will support FreeSync on Linux and wider GPU support
AMD have announced that they are working on a big driver update. The Linux driver will support FreeSync and have wider support for their different GPUs.
The Rumor Is Back That Future Intel CPUs To Use Radeon Graphics
The rumor is back that Intel and AMD have reached a deal for future Intel CPUs to be paired with integrated AMD Radeon graphics.
Windows 10 is a really great desktop operating system, but it is not for everyone. For those that care deeply about security and privacy, an open source Linux-based operating system is a wise alternative. The problem? Learning a new user interface can be hard for some. If you have always used a Windows OS in the past, moving to a desktop environment like GNOME or Unity can be confusing and scary.
Luckily, for those that have difficulty with change, there are some Linux-based operating systems that are designed for Windows-switchers. One fairly popular such offering, Zorin OS, has now reached version 12. It is designed to be familiar to former users of Microsoft's OS. While the company does charge for an "Ultimate" version, the "Core" edition of Zorin OS 12 is entirely free.
So you have a Raspberry Pi, or you’re thinking of getting one, and you want to know how to get started and how to become a master user of one.
The Raspberry Pi is a single board computer, meaning that in many ways it's a regular PC, except that everything that makes up the computer is on a single board rather than a traditional PC, which has a motherboard and requires a number of additional daughterboards to make a whole unit.
I have a 1 terabyte drive that currently has 3 partitions, an Arch Linux, Windows 7 and an Ubuntu Studio install (/dev/sda*). Grub2 is also installed on /dev/sda with those 3 partitions. The home directories for Arch/Ubuntu are on a separate HDD (/dev/sdb1).
I just bought a 500GB Samsung EVO M.2 SSD, that I want to use to boot these 3 operating systems, hopefully blindingly fast.
Ideally, I'd prefer not to have to reinstall all 3 OS's.
Let me know if this looks like a good plan to you guys, and if you foresee any issues: 1. Shrink /dev/sda to <500gb, then clone via dd /dev/sda to the SSD. 2. In my BIOS, boot from the SSD instead of the HDD. 3. Make sure both Linux OS's point to /dev/sdb1 as /home 4. Done?
Is there a faster, less time consuming or a cleaner way to do this? Will I see the same boot speeds if I just symlink /boot to the HDD?
Does anyone know if Windows will freak out being cloned with all of the licensing stuff, etc?
I appreciate any and all help, thank you.submitted by /u/daaaaaaave
With now having netperf in the Phoronix Test Suite as well as iperf3 for the latest open-source benchmarks in our automated cross-platform benchmarking framework, I couldn't help but to run some networking benchmarks on a system when trying out a few different Linux distributions and BSDs to see how the performance compares. The operating systems ran with these networking benchmarks included Debian 8.6, Ubuntu 16.10, Clear Linux 12020, CentOS 7, and Fedora 25. The BSDs tested for this comparison were FreeBSD 11.0 and DragonFlyBSD 4.6.1.
The city of Rome, the fourth-largest city in the European Union, will increase its use of free and open source software, it decided in October. All new software solutions should be based on open source, and the city is to consider replacing existing proprietary solutions by open source alternatives.
Absolute 14.2.2 released
The update is for the 64-bit version. Updated kernel and Xorg, as well as taking care of security and functional fixes (such as tweaks to pulse audio, network manager, battery management.) Installer also updated to correct error of sometimes not finding drives for autoinstall. All Slackware updates in current included and several programs recompiled to keep up with dependency changes.
SparkyLinux 4.5.1 MinimalGUI
There is an update of Sparky 4.5.1 MinimalGUI available to download.
The Sparky Advanced Installer doesn’t work as it should in the MinimaGUI edition, if you are trying to install an additional desktop. The installer calls a ‘desktop-installer’, but it does not coming back to the main installer with right privileges after. It used to do before, but not any more.
