While Linux Mint 18 moves in a positive direction overall, the direction that founder and project leader Clement Lefebvre envisions is likely to raise some eyebrows.

Thursday 7th of July 2016 09:16:37 PM

X-ES announced an “XPedite5850” COM Express Basic Type 5 module that runs Linux on an NXP QorIQ T4240 SoC with 12 e6500 PowerPC cores.

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) regularly taps NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ system-on-chips for its Xpedite SBCs and modules, both the newer ARM-based variety, as in the XPedite6401 and XPedite6370 (QorIQ LS1043A or LS2088A) and the PowerPC-based Xpedite 6101 (QorIQ T2081, T1042, or T1022). The new XPedite5850 COM Express module uses NXP’s highest-end Power Architecture chip, the QorIQ T4240, and appears to be the first COM Express module based on the SoC.

Reddit: LC3 Simulator install help

Thursday 7th of July 2016 08:19:38 PM

I need some help installing the LC3 Simulator. I've tried everything I thought of, and everything I have found online (which is not much, honestly). I also looked here on reddit using google and found nothing that helped me.

I haven't been able to install it correctly or make it work. Could somebody please help me? I need it for a class.

Please and thank you.

TuxMachines: Tsuru open source PaaS puts developers first

Thursday 7th of July 2016 07:31:16 PM

A new open source PaaS, Tsuru, is out to ease the application deployment process by reducing it to little more than a Git push command.

The workflow for Tsuru, according to its documentation, consists of writing an app, backing it with resources like databases or caching, and deploying it to production with Git. Tsuru handles the rest, including crating up the apps in Docker containers and managing their workloads. Its creators claim it can be deployed both locally and on services like AWS, DigitalOcean, or Apache CloudStack.

Reddit: Linux noob...feel like I'm missing out

Thursday 7th of July 2016 07:28:43 PM

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop about a year ago because I valued the privacy of Linux and I just thought it was cool. I felt like a programmer setting up my dual boot and using the terminal (even though I was doing very basic stuff). I'm very much still a noob when it comes to Linux. I only use computers for everyday things like browsing, school work, and gaming so I haven't done anything else in Ubuntu. But seeing how much knowledge people have regarding Linux on this sub makes me feel like I'm missing out on the Linux experience and I could be doing more. So is there any cool stuff you guys would recommend I do? Whether it be move on to other distros or customize what I have. Thanks.

Reddit: Guys you should check out git-annex!

Thursday 7th of July 2016 06:41:47 PM

https://git-annex.branchable.com/walkthrough/

It will keep track of your files, synchros to the latest version and can be used to work with unstable drives by keeping track of copies.

Normally i have a main laptop and know i have a movie saved somewhere, but i dont know where. So i just redownload because i dont want to search all my folders/hard drives/usb sticks etc. With git annex it creates a folder with links to the files. So if i want to watch a movie it checks first if it's already available on a mounted drive. If not it tells you on which device you can finde it!

So awesome. You should definitely check it out. For me its a Dropbox killer.

Works best if you have a nat or a raspi in our home network.

Here is a video where some guy explains it: https://youtu.be/IjHqIgPRQyA

Fork YOU! Sure, take the code. Then what?

There's an old adage in the open source world – if you don't like it, fork it. This advice, often given in a flippant manner, makes it seem like forking a piece of software is not a big deal. Indeed, forking a small project you find on GitHub is not a big deal. There's even a handy button to make it easy to fork it. Unlike many things in programming though, that interaction model, that simplicity of forking, does not scale. There is no button next to Debian that says Fork it! Thinking that all you need to do to make a project yours is to fork it is a fundamental misunderstanding of what large free/open source projects are – at their hearts, they are communities. One does not simply walk into Debian and fork it. One can, on the other hand, walk out of a project, bring all the other core developers along, and essentially leave the original an empty husk. This is what happened when LibreOffice forked away from the once-mighty OpenOffice; it's what happened when MariaDB split from MySQL; and it's what happened more recently when the core developers behind ownCloud left the company and forked the code to start their own project, Nextcloud. They also, thankfully, dropped the silly lowercase first letter thing. Nextcloud consists of the core developers who built ownCloud, but who were not, and, judging by the very public way this happened, had not been, in control of the direction of the product for some time.
