Hi guys.

We make a OpenVPN config for my boss (linux, on both sides), but seems that is not working from China.

LXer: Python Functions

Monday 21st of November 2016 03:35:29 AM
Here's another trip back to math class. If you remember, functions took in a number, did something to it, then outputted the new value. They were often represented in tables with the input on one side and the output on the other. Functions in programming are similar. Sometimes they take input. Sometimes they don't. Much of the time they return a value as well, but they don't always have to. In every case, they are used to repeat an operation whenever they are used, and that's the greatest similarity with the math concept.

Reddit: CCTV on RaspberryPi: Motioneye OS vs Kerberos.io

Sunday 20th of November 2016 11:45:40 PM

I am looking to set up a home surveillance using a RaspberryPi 2, but can't find many good posts about people who have set this up before. Kerberos.io looks cool but I can't find anyone who has used it. Motioneye OS looks like it's been around a while longer. Does anyone have these set up? If so what have you liked/hated about it? Thanks!

TuxMachines: Linux 4.9-rc6

Sunday 20th of November 2016 11:19:54 PM

We're getting further in the rc series, and while things have stayed
pretty calm, I'm not sure if we're quite there yet. There's a few
outstanding issues that just shouldn't be issues at rc6 time, so we'll
just have to see. This may be one of those releases that have an rc8,
which considering the size of 4.9 is perhaps not that unusual.

That said, nothing particular is bothering me all that much, but we've
had some of the VMALLOC_STACK fixups continue to trickle in, so I
worry that we're not quite done there yet. And let's see what
Thorsten's regression list looks like next week. So no decision yet,
it could still go either way.

  • Early Benchmarks Of AMDGPU DRM-Next Code For Linux 4.10

    For those curious if the AMDGPU DRM driver changes that are queued in DRM-Next for Linux 4.10 will bring any performance changes, here are some early numbers.

    This week I carried out some fresh benchmarks using Linux 4.8.7 stable, Linux 4.9 Git as of this week, and the DRM-Next kernel as of this week that carries the AMDGPU changes queued so far for the next kernel version. In terms of the AMDGPU changes for Linux 4.10, see AMDGPU In Linux 4.10 To Have Better Power Management, New VM Manager.

  • The future of xinput, xmodmap, setxkbmap, xsetwacom and other tools under Wayland
    This post applies to most tools that interface with the X server and change settings in the server, including xinput, xmodmap, setxkbmap, xkbcomp, xrandr, xsetwacom and other tools that start with x. The one word to sum up the future for these tools under Wayland is: "non-functional". An X window manager is little more than an innocent bystander when it comes to anything input-related. Short of handling global shortcuts and intercepting some mouse button presses (to bring the clicked window to the front) there is very little a window manager can do. It's a separate process to the X server and does not receive most input events and it cannot affect what events are being generated. When it comes to input device configuration, any X client can tell the server to change it - that's why general debugging tools like xinput work.
