NI unveiled a fanless, rugged vision computer that runs NI Linux on a quad-core Atom E3845, and offers an FPGA and support for 350MB/s USB3 Vision cameras.
National Instruments (NI) has delivered its NI Linux Real-Time OS on a variety of embedded industrial computers and control systems, including its recent CompactRIO 4-slot Performance Controller. Now, the company is applying NI Linux to machine vision with its new USB3 Vision compatible NI CVS-1459RT.
It's no secret that Fedora has had a challenging time sticking to their release schedules for a long time. With taking care of blocker bugs, Fedora Linux releases tend to frequently slip -- with Fedora 21 it's about two months behind schedule and we're just past the alpha stage. By the time Fedora 21 actually ships, Fedora 20 will have been at least twelve months old. However, a new release scheduling strategy might be tried starting with Fedora 22.
For years there's been the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD port that ships the same Debian GNU user-land as Debian GNU/Linux but replaces the Linux kernel with that of the FreeBSD kernel.
Without the fuss and delays that have plagued so many large government IT projects, a key part of the NHS digital infrastructure was recently migrated and updated in a single weekend.
The collection of applications and directory services known as the Spine connects clinicians, patients and local services to core NHS services such as the GP2GP patient record transfer, the Electronic Prescription Service, patients' Summary Care Records, and the Choose and Book service. More than 250,000 health service staff connect to it every day, sending more than 400m messages each month.
I am a tinkerer. I have a security camera device that I want to built a custom API for (for using a custom home-automation system to turn off the security monitoring when I unlock my z-wave deadbolt, etc.). The company is slow (years) in releasing one (I asked, and they said "someday..."), so, I decided to figure it out myself.
After port scanning the device, I discovered it runs several SSH servers across several ports (>1024). I was able to snag the private key from the Android app, and can connect to the device using that key. However, they are not running any kind of shell (Bash, etc.) and so the connection terminates when Putty/WinSCP tries to create a shell session. SCP doesn't appear to be supported either.
So, my question is this: How do I go about discovering other ways of talking to the established SSH session? Are there ways to discover other protocols (?) or services?submitted by ex-mo-fo-sho

Scribbleton is a very infant -- as in alpha -- release of an innovative note-taking app for Linux that provides cross-platform access with Windows and Apple computers.
It creates a personal wiki for storing everything from quick notes to detailed checklists to outlines. It creates links between pages in Scribbleton. Think of this as an easy-to-use database to create links between words, phrases and pages. You can just as easily use Scribbleton to store snippets or volumes of text and quickly locate cross-referenced information.
The project is launching with thirty-eight founding companies, including many of the largest IT companies in the world. Importantly, they include not only cloud and service infrastructure vendors, but telecom service providers, developers and end users as well. (Disclosure: my firm and I represent the Linux Foundation and OPNFV).
Having a UEFI system, I wanted to give Antergos a shot. So, back in April, I tried, and found a major flaw.
First, a little background: Linux distributions, by default, mount EFI partitions to /boot/efi and not directly to /boot as to not confuse Linux kernels when dual booting, since if they all mounted the same partition to /boot, kernels could overwrite each other.
Antergos mounts the EFI partition directly to /boot. As you can see from the image below, there is no way to override this:
When brought up to the developers in (this bug report)[https://github.com/Antergos/Cnchi/issues/186], the developers have been unwilling and completely resistant to changing this behavior.
If you use a UEFI system and have the need to dual boot, then DO NOT install Antergos. The method used is destructive and does not behave well with other Linux systems, and can mess-up your EFI partition.
For those that would simply turn-off the UEFI to boot in Legacy BIOS mode, some people simply do not have that option (myself included).
So, again, a word of warning: DO NOT USE ANTERGOS ON UEFI SYSTEMS. IT MAY BREAK YOUR SYSTEM.submitted by eeickmeyer
I know how to use Linux, I have installed Ubuntu and Arch on my laptops, but I think it's time to move to Ubuntu on my desktop. But I want to confirm what I already though, so, can I simply use the Windows 8.1 disk and code again on the same computer? For warranty purposes.submitted by AmishMuffins
