Wednesday 6th of August 2014 04:56:06 PM

Matthias goes on to point out that Wayland is actually not that hard to find in Fedora either — while it won’t be the default display server in Fedora 21, it is already including in the upcoming release for users to try out and test. To try out Wayland for yourself, just install the gnome-session-wayland-session package from the repositories, then select the GNOME on Wayland option from the session chooser when logging into your profile.

Reddit: IOMMU, 64 bit linux questions

Wednesday 6th of August 2014 04:29:46 PM

I have hardware that supports IOMMU, my kernel is compiled to fully support IOMMU however whether I enable or disable IOMMU in BIOS it seems to make no performance benefits to linux host nor virtualized 64bit guests.

My understanding of this feature is limited but from what I've read online how it works only on virtual hosts with a device that you allocate to it, and it has more benefit on 32bit guests. Is this true?

LXer: Securing SSH with two factor authentication using Google Authenticator

Wednesday 6th of August 2014 04:03:30 PM
Two-step verification (also known as Two-factor authentication, abbreviated to TFA) is a process involving two stages to verify the identity of an entity trying to access services in a computer or in a network. This is a special case of a multi-factor authentication which might involve only one of the three authentication factors (a knowledge factor, a possession factor, and an inheritance factor) for both steps. If each step involves a different authentication factor then the two-step verification is additionally two-factor authentication.

Open source software: The question of security

The logic is understandable - how can a software with source code that can easily be viewed, accessed and changed have even a modicum of security? opensource-security-question Open source software is safer than many believe. But with organizations around the globe deploying open source solutions in even some of the most mission-critical and security-sensitive environments, there is clearly something unaccounted for by that logic. According to a November 28 2013 Financial News article, some of the world's largest banks and exchanges, including Deutsche Bank and the New York Stock Exchange, have been active in open source projects and are operating their infrastructure on Linux, Apache and similar systems.

Beer and open source with Untappd

Greg Avola loves beer and coding. He loves beer so much that he made an app, Untappd, where users track their favorite brews. He loves coding so much that he wrote a book about mobile web development. According to him, if it weren't for open source software, his app—and the projects of many other developers—simply wouldn't exist. Read more in my interview with Greg about his open source journey, his favorite beer, and why check-in apps are still relevant. Read more

What is Docker, Really? Founder Solomon Hykes Explains

Docker has quickly become one of the most popular open source projects in cloud computing. With millions of Docker Engine downloads, hundreds of meetup groups in 40 countries and dozens upon dozens of companies announcing Docker integration, it's no wonder the less-than-two-year-old project ranked No. 2 overall behind OpenStack in Linux.com and The New Stack's top open cloud project survey. This meteoric rise is still puzzling, and somewhat problematic, however, for Docker, which is “just trying to keep up” with all of the attention and contributions it's receiving, said founder Solomon Hykes in his keynote at LinuxCon and CloudOpen on Thursday. Most people today who are aware of Docker don't necessarily understand how it works or even why it exists, he said, because they haven't actually used it. “Docker is very popular, it became popular very fast, and we're not really sure why,” Hykes said. “My personal theory … is that it was in the right place at the right time for a trend that's much bigger than Docker, and that is very important for all of us, that has to do with how applications are built.” Read more
