Reddit: Having issues verifying Debian 8.1 (Jessie/amd64)

Sunday 2nd of August 2015 07:41:47 AM

Is anyone else having this problem? I am trying to verify the signatures of the checksums provided at http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/8.1.0/amd64/bt-cd/

I am using KeyID 6294BE9B, which I retrieved using GPA, part of gpg4win, available here: https://www.debian.org/CD/verify

I am getting a bad signature on all of the .sign files when using this key. I have even tried signing the public key with my own private key, it shows fully valid, but I still have the same issue. Can anyone help?

LXer: Appeals court: Actually, Newegg did win that case

Saturday 1st of August 2015 01:04:51 AM
Newegg is famous for fighting patent trolls, and the company is currently trying to win fees from several cases where it has won or the troll has given up. In one of those cases, Newegg fought a non-practicing entity called Pragmatus Telecom, which dropped its case against Newegg before discovery was complete. Newegg asked for attorneys fees but was rejected by the Delaware district court, which found that Newegg wasn't the "prevailing party"—in other words, it hadn't really won the case at all, so it couldn't be granted fees.

Developer lowers Drupal's barrier to entry

From a consumer perspective, I'd like open source to be ubiquitous to the point of invisibility. Using recent Ubuntu distros, I'm always shocked at how professional the environment feels. Just five years ago, you'd need to hunt down drivers and do a bunch of fiddling to get basic things like a sound card working. Now there are so many pushbutton ways to deploy open source tech, from OSes to CMS distros on Pantheon to buying an Android-powered mobile phone. We're not quite to the point where CMS users can feel like open source is transparent; there's still a huge investment in vendors to give you the expertise to manage your Drupal or WordPress site, for example. But we're closer than we were a decade ago, and that's pretty exciting. Read more

Intel invests $60 million in drone venture

Intel is investing $60 million in UAV firm Yuneec, whose prosumer “Typhoon” drones use Android-based controllers. Intel Corp. CEO Brian Krzanich and Yuneec International CEO Tian Yu took to YouTube to announce an Intel investment of more than $60 million in the Hong Kong based company to help develop drone technology.
