LXer: How VMs access metadata via qrouter-namespace in Juno

Monday 24th of November 2014 09:19:26 PM
It is actually an update of http://techbackground.blogspot.ie/2013/06/metadata-via-quantum-router.html for Neutron on Juno ( original blog considers Quantum implementation on Grizzly ). From my standpoint understanding of core architecture of Neutron openstack flow in regards of nova-api metadata service access (and getting proper response from nova-api ) by VMs launching via nova causes a lot of problems due to leak of understanding of core concepts.

LXer: Open Food Network connects you with local, sustainable food

Monday 24th of November 2014 08:22:15 PM
Open Food Network is a food hub, a connector between small farmers and places to sell their local, sustainable food. Find them on GitHub.Interest in sustainable, local food has grown by leaps and bounds in the past decade. Consumers think more and more about what they are eating and they want food that is sustainably produced, healthy, and safe. Local and organic food purchases hardly missed a beat through the recession. Big companies even started putting the word “natural” on their products hoping to ride the trend. Cynical marketing aside, sustainable, local food is important for a variety of reasons. Larger farms’ grain and livestock production has led to the development of a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico the size of Indiana. Processed food with added sugar contributes to record levels of obesity and preventable disease. So-called "super weeds" are springing up, immune to broadly applied Roundup and other herbicides.

Defending the Free Linux World

Co-opetition is a part of open source. The Open Invention Network model allows companies to decide where they will compete and where they will collaborate, explained OIN CEO Keith Bergelt. As open source evolved, "we had to create channels for collaboration. Otherwise, we would have hundreds of entities spending billions of dollars on the same technology." Read more

And the best distro of 2014 is ...

Looking back at my 2013 summary, I just realized I'm a bloody prophet. I wanted openSUSE to make a nice comeback, and it did. And I wanted Fedora to shine, and it did, and it's version 20 no less. The utter and total dominance of the Ubuntu family has been shattered, and this is a very good thing. Competition is always good. What about Mint, you ask? Well, Linux Mint behaved splendidly, but this year, the few spins I tried weren't as sharp and spectacular as what we saw in 2013. Not necessarily a bad thing, but the best-of is more than just a list of grades. It also packs an emotional element, a surprise element, as well as the overall combination of what the selected distributions have achieved with their given parameters. For instance, CentOS is not supposed to be a desktop system, so when it does that well, it's more interesting than similar results with the stock Ubuntu family members and cousins. Hence, this list and its players. Of course, this is entirely my private, subjective observation, but I think it fits the global shift in the Linux field. With the Mir vs Wayland game, a big delay in Ubuntu Edge, and a general cooling off in the distro space, seeing more effort from outside the Ubuntu range is only natural. And welcome. That said, the big winner is still Trusty, and it shows that even though some years may be rougher than others, Ubuntu has its merit and cannot be easily disregarded, no matter how we feel, or want to feel, even if purely on a reactionary basis. And to prove us all wrong, Canonical has baked a phenomenal LTS release, which should bring much joy and fun to Linux users worldwide for years to come. I hope you've liked this compilation. See you next year. Read more

Judge spanks SCO in ancient ownership of Unix lawsuit

IBM has had a win in its long court battle with SCO over just who owns Unix and, by extension, whether Linux is an unauthorised clone. Some quick and simplified history: SCO – short for The Santa Cruz Operation – was a software company that offered a version of Unix for x86 chippery. When Linux came along in the late 90s and started turning into a business, SCO more or less sank and it attacked both Novell and IBM for their role in helping to spread Linus Torvalds' brainchild. At stake was whether those who distribute and profit from Linux should share some of their bounty with SCO. If a court had found in SCO's favour, it would have been bad news for Linux. The Novell suit ran for about six years, but SCO lost. After that, SCO endured all manner of financial strife, but managed to crawl from the crypt more than once. Last year, SCO managed to secure approval to re-open the case against IBM. Read more Also: ENOUGH! Says Nuffer

Hands-On with Tanglu 2.0 Bartholomea annulata

Tanglu GNU/Linux is a distribution based on Debian Testing. When I wrote recently about the future of Linux Mint Debian Edition and other distributions based on Debian Testing, what I was concerned about was the fact that they will be changing their base to Debian Stable in the near future. Tanglu has not given any indication that they intend to change, so this could be a good alternative for the future. Read more
