IMAGINATION TECHNOLOGIES has announced the creation of a tiny hypervisor rig to power its MIPS-based CPUs.
The joint venture with Japanese firm Seltech saw the Fexerox hypervisor embedded firmware from Seltech paired with an Imagination MIPSM5150 CPU to create a virtualised environment, allowing multiple operating systems to run independently off a single unit packed into a tiny space.

I copied from a vfat usb, I can no longer modify permissions/ownership of the files, and it's hell to try and open them in applications. Is there anything I can do to restore the acl's? (To be clear, I'm not trying to modify the files on the usb, rather the one's on my hard drive. I know that vfat doesn't allow for file's permissions/ownership to be modified.)

Reddit: Linux From Scratch. Which iso to download and which documentation version to read? The site is unclear.
The LFS subreddit has no activity at all and that is why I am posting here.
I want to start LFS. I downloaded the .ISO that is setup appropriately to build LFS. However it is not. The Kernel version is 2.6.22 instead of 2.6.32 and the "xz" package is not installed. These requirements are explained in their documentation
The version of ISO I downloaded and the only one I could find was version 6.3. However, the documentation is version 7.6.
What is going on? Can somebody give me a link with the appropriate ISO?
Thank you.submitted by GromitRacer

Xfdashboard with new themes
I updated the xfdashboard package this morning to version 0.3.4. The big arrival with this update is that there are multiple themes that can be installed.
Tomahawk Review – A Beautiful, Fresh Music Player for the New Cloud Age
Tomahawk is a new type of music player that aims to change the way we think about this kind of applications. It's not very different from the rest, but some of the features it sports are unique. We'll take a closer look to see if it's really all that revolutionary.
Linux and FOSS have already changed the world, and we're just at the beginning. This is a great time to learn to be a maker, in contrast to being a mere consumer. Clicking buttons on a smartphone is not being tech-savvy; hacking and building the phone is.
Some people give Make Magazine the credit for launching the Maker Movement. Whether they launched it or just gave it a name, it is a real phenomenon, a natural evolution of do-it-yourselfers, inventors, and hackers in every generation. Remember Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Hands-On (for Shopsmith projects), photography magazines, woodworking magazines, electronics...remember Heathkit? Remember when Radio Shack was still an electronics store? How about Edmund Scientific? That is still a wonderful playground of anatomical models, microscopes, telescopes, dinosaurs, prisms, lenses, chemistry sets, lasers, geology stuff, and tons more. All of these still exist, and have moved online like everything else. It's a feast of riches, plus we have all the cool new stuff that Make Magazine covers. This is absolutely the best time to be a curious tech adventurer.
