LXer: Low-cost COM/baseboard combo taps power-sipping -A5 SoC

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 02:35:07 AM
MYIR’s SODIMM-style, 200-pin MYC-JA5D2X module has the same 67.6 x 45mm dimensions as its MYC-JA5D4X computer-on-module, and similarly runs Linux on an Cortex-A5 based Atmel SAMA5 SoC. Instead of tapping the SAMA5D42 or SAMA5D44, however, the MYC-JA5D2X moves to the newer, more power efficient SAMA5D2.

Reddit: Rite of Passage? My first step into linux

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 02:01:10 AM

I have broken my first linux device within hours of booting it up. Running Raspian lite (CLI only) on a humble little pi 2b. This isn't a troubleshooting help question, that isn't my reason for posting. Even though i broke it to hell i am just actually excited to keep playing with it until i get a better handle on the system.

For the curious, i am pretty certain i screwed my sudoers file into oblivion when trying to get my user account sudo privelages. I used the visudo command to get in and edit it and it is adamantly denying any sudo commands pitched at it from all accounts. No big deal. Gunna spend some time trying to fix it if not burn it and start over.

This isn't a story of defeat. Just my first bold step into the unknown. Carry on!

Reddit: What software made you think, "wow, how come I didn't know about this sooner?"

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 12:56:08 AM

I keep finding new things that make me think that. Lately I've been playing with M4. I was wanting a way to use C-style macros in other languages and even tried implementing it native to whatever language I was using. M4 already does what I wanted, and does it well.

I found that it's also useful for standard text processing a la sed, tr, awk etc.. You can do stuff like set a macro name to a single character and replace it with whatever text you want, evaluate math expressions inside it, save your settings to scripts, and a lot more. The learning curve has not been steep either.

I feel like there's probably a lot of stuff I'm missing out on that will make my life a lot easier.

TuxMachines: Best Linux distros

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 12:24:07 AM

While it may not be as popular as Windows or MacOS, Linux is often the operating system of choice for those in the know. A combination of power and versatility has made Linux a firm favourite among developers and self-professed tech geeks over the years.

Contrary to popular belief, however, you don't need to be a programmer or a lifelong tech head to start using Linux. Most of the more popular distros are exceedingly easy to use, with heaps of documentation and guides available online. Best of all, Linux is classed as 'open source' software, meaning that it's completely free!

Reddit: How did we let open source printing support get so poor?

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 12:23:58 AM

I've recently had my Samsung ML-1865W printer stop working and went shopping for a replacement. I was almost settled on a Brother HL-L2340DW when I realized it required closed source drivers installed from sketchy binaries. So I kept researching and realized there don't seem to be any reasonable cheap laser printers with open-source support anymore. Plenty of people rave about the Brother/HP support but both require binaries you have no reason to trust and probably restrict you to x86. I had no idea it had gotten this bad.

Reddit: I've got VLC playing a DVD in tty using ascii text. Anyone know how to get hotkeys to work?

Tuesday 7th of March 2017 12:11:21 AM
vlc --global-key-nav-activate=Enter --global-key-nav-up=w --global-key-nav-down=s --global-key-nav-left=a --global-key-nav-right=d --global-key-play-pause=Space --global-key-quit=Escape --global-key-position=i --global-key-jump-short=Left --global-key-jump+short=Right --global-key-vol-up=Shift+Up --global-key-vol-down=Shift+Down --global-key-vol-mute=Shift+/ dvd:///dev/dvd

This is what I've tried so far. The keys work (except Escape key) in a terminal emulator, but not in tty. Ascii video works just fine with DVDs that automatically play. But once this script runs in tty environment, I'm stuck until I use htop to kill VLC processes. I've also tried them with quotes and used xav to map the keys just to be sure. I'm running a personal distro that I've made with susestudio (OpenSUSE 13.2 32-bit), and I'm working on a CLI menu for the next release for the diehard command line fans.

Phoronix: Core i7 6800K Linux CPU Scaling Benchmarks With Ubuntu 16.10

Monday 6th of March 2017 11:32:19 PM
Earlier today I posted some Linux game CPU scaling benchmarks using a Core i7 6800K Broadwell-E For showing how current Linux games make use of (or not) multiple CPU cores, which originated from discussions by Linux gamers following the AMD Ryzen CPU launch with how many cores are really needed. While going through the process of running those Linux game CPU scaling benchmarks, I also ran some other workloads for those curious...

Raspberry Pi based computer offers Real-Time Ethernet

Hilscher is prepping a rugged “netPI” computer that combines a Raspberry Pi 3 with its “netHAT 52-RTE” RPi add-on featuring dual Real-Time Ethernet ports. German Real-Time Ethernet experts Hilscher will soon launch a Raspberry Pi 3-based industrial computer with Real-Time Ethernet support. Hilscher has yet to formally announce the ruggedized netPI computer, but the board was demonstrated at the recent Embedded World show, and was revealed in a Mar. 27 Element14 Community blog by Shabaz. The system can be used as a Real-Time Ethernet gateway or controller, and it supports add-ons such as sensors or actuators to enable additional applications, writes Shabaz. Read more

GNOME Migration and Slideshow

  • The Linux Migration: Corporate Collaboration, Part 2
    Note that a number of folks have suggested alternative calendar applications. I’ve rejected these so far because I don’t think they’ll fit into my workflow or my environment, but they may work for others. Some of the applications I’ve seen suggested include Rainlendar, Calcurse, or KOrganizer. Some of these applications address some of the shortcomings of GNOME Calendar, but none of them address all the major issues I’ve outlined here (based on my testing thus far).

Dowry to Linux Foundation From NSA Ally

  • AT&T takes up membership in the Linux Foundation, furthers open source efforts
    AT&T has become a Platinum member in the Linux Foundation, a move that reflects the telco’s ongoing effort to implement open source and open networks not only in its own networks but also to drive broader industry collaboration. One example of this is AT&T's Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management and Policy (ECOMP) architecture. In February, AT&T contributed several million lines of ECOMP code to The Linux Foundation, as well as the new Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) Project based on production-ready code from AT&T and OPEN-O contributors.
  • AT&T Joins The Linux Foundation as a Platinum Member
  • AT&T Joins The Linux Foundation as a Platinum Member
    The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration, today announced that AT&T has become a Platinum member. This follows news of the company’s contribution of several million lines of ECOMP code to The Linux Foundation, as well as the new Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) Project based on production-ready code from AT&T and OPEN-O contributors.

GNU/Linux on Servers: VisionMobile Report, Cilium, Microservices, and Kubernetes

  • VisionMobile Report Lays Out Developer Salaries by Skill, Software Sector, and Location
    In 2017, that means skilled cloud and backend developers, as well as those who work in emerging technologies including Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) can make more money -- tens or sometimes hundreds of times more -- than frontend web and mobile developers whose skills have become more commoditized. “In Western Europe, for example, the median backend developer earns 12% more than the median web developer; a machine learning developer makes 28% more,” according to the report.
  • Cilium leverages Linux kernel for advanced container networking
    Networking has always been one of the most persistent headaches when working with containers. Even Kubernetes—fast becoming the technology of choice for container orchestration—has limitations in how it implements networking. Tricky stuff like network security is, well, even trickier. Now an open source project named Cilium, which is partly sponsored by Google, is attempting to provide a new networking methodology for containers based on technology used in the Linux kernel. Its goal is to give containers better network security and a simpler model for networking.
  • Modules vs. microservices
    Much has been said about moving from monoliths to microservices. Besides rolling off the tongue nicely, it also seems like a no-brainer to chop up a monolith into microservices. But is this approach really the best choice for your organization? It’s true that there are many drawbacks to maintaining a messy monolithic application. But there is a compelling alternative which is often overlooked: modular application development. In this article, we'll explore what this alternative entails and show how it relates to building microservices.
  • What Is Kubernetes?
    Kubernetes is open source software for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. The project is governed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, which is hosted by The Linux Foundation. And it’s quickly becoming the Linux of the cloud, says Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation. Running a container on a laptop is relatively simple. But connecting containers across multiple hosts, scaling them when needed, deploying applications without downtime, and service discovery among several aspects, are really hard challenges. Kubernetes addresses those challenges with a set of primitives and a powerful API.
