Thursday 13th of October 2016 02:41:45 PM How to Find Funding for an Open Source Project

Thursday 13th of October 2016 02:11:24 PM

Ask people how to find funding for a technology project, and many of them will point to crowdsourcing sites. After all, the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, the Pebble smartwatch, and even the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer were launched after their inventors collectively raised millions of dollars from contributors. If you happen to have an open source project that you want to get funded, what are some of your options? Build a Spooky Halloween Music-Light Show with Raspberry Pi and Linux

Reddit: Those of you who use Linux for privacy reasons, what mobile OS do you use?

Thursday 13th of October 2016 01:48:41 PM

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I know Linux is always said to be more private than Windows and MacOS. So it makes me wonder about everyone's mobile OS. If this isn't appropriate for this sub, let me know.

LXer: 3 command line conversion tools for Linux

Thursday 13th of October 2016 11:40:01 AM
Recently, a friend innocently asked me how many file formats there are. My semi-serious response was "Think of a soup bowl filled with beach sand."OK, there aren't quite that many file formats. That said, you've probably never heard of many of the formats that are commonly-used enough to warrant listing on Wikipedia. Chances are, you'll never see and never use most of them. If, however, you want or need to convert between file formats then there are a quite a few applications for the more

Linux Kernel News

  • BUS1 Kernel Message Bus Posted For Review
    David Herrmann has posted the initial patches for review of the BUS1 kernel message bus, the successor to KDBUS as an in-kernel IPC mechanism. Herrmann announced, "This proposal introduces bus1.ko, a kernel messaging bus. This is not a request for inclusion, yet. It is rather an initial draft and a Request For Comments. While bus1 emerged out of the kdbus project, bus1 was started from scratch and the concepts have little in common. In a nutshell, bus1 provides a capability-based IPC system, similar in nature to Android Binder, Cap'n Proto, and seL4. The module is completely generic and does neither require nor mandate a user-space counter-part."

Puppy Linux developer Barry Kauler was happy to announce the general availability of his Quirky 8.1 "Xerus" GNU/Linux distribution built with binary DEB packages from the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Quirky 8.1 "Xerus" is here to replace the old "April" series, and while it is indeed built using the binary DEBs of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, it stays true to being a distro from the Puppy Linux family and not an Ubuntu clone. However, it lets users install packages from the official Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) software repositories, a feature that was not available in the Quirky "April" releases. Read more
