TuxMachines: Endless Computer Makes Their GNOME-Focused Linux OS Available To Everyone

Friday 3rd of June 2016 07:39:37 PM

Over the past year or two you've likely heard of Endless Computers for their work on building a $79 PC for the "offline world" as a Linux PC for developing countries. Or you may have also heard of Endless Computers due to their upstream contributions to GNOME, since their "Endless OS" is based upon the GNOME desktop environment. Up to now their Linux distribution has just been available for their low-cost PCs, but now they are making it available for free.

Reddit: Are all the Ubuntu variant i386 ISOs fubar or just the MATE one?

Friday 3rd of June 2016 07:18:16 PM

There are issues with the networking and power management on this i386 Ubuntu MATE ISO on the 2 machines I have tested it on: Acer Aspire One KAV10 and a ThinkPad T420. Has anyone run into similar issues? Trying to determine if I need to wait for 16.04.1 ISOs or just run Xubuntu instead... or consider this my last time to bother with anything Ubuntu-based henceforth.

  • GDB Debugger Now Supports The Rust Language, Other GNU Toolchain Improvements

    The GNU Toolchain has continued making improvements this year beyond just the recent GCC 6 stable compiler release.

    Nick Clifton of Red Hat has sent out a mailing to share the GNU Toolchain updates made over the past two months. He covers the GCC 6 improvements with the new warning options, GDB 7.11.1 improvements, and more.

  • GCC 5.4 Released
  • GCC 5.4 Compiler Released, Fixed 147+ Bugs

    Version 5.4 of the GNU Compiler Collection is now available.

    Before getting too excited, this is just a maintenance update to GCC 5 under their funky new versioning scheme. Beyond that, GCC 6 has already been available in stable form via GCC 6.1.

    GCC 5.4 represents just another maintenance/bug-fix release to GCC 5 since its first stable release last year, GCC 5.1. GCC 5.4 is known to fix at least 147 bugs compared to the GCC 5.3 stable update from a few months back.

LXer: Hackathons bring open source innovation to humanitarian aid

Friday 3rd of June 2016 06:07:29 PM
Humanitarian and development aid is about helping people suffering from both short-term and long-term problems. These problems can be natural (e.g., droughts, floods, and earthquakes) as well as man-made (e.g., poverty, war, and oppression). A recent example of a humanitarian crisis is the refugee situation in Europe, and the disorder in Syria and its surrounding more

Reddit: Corel Linux OS Deluxe - Getting it to run in a VM

Friday 3rd of June 2016 05:40:24 PM

I found an old set of Corel Linux CD's lying around, and before they go to the recycle bin I would like to setup a VM. I have tried VMWare Player (setup locks up) Oracle Virtual Box (setup reboots and then no boot device found).

Has anyone ever gotten this to work?

Reddit: Question about Linux...

Friday 3rd of June 2016 05:25:54 PM

Sorry I am not a Linux user, but I do have a question about it. What are the minimum specs for a computer to run a Linux Distro that can be my media PC and play up to SBS 3D 1080p movies with 7.1 audio?

I have a couple older smaller machines and Windows can't quite do it and my Mac Mini can't pull it off so I am just hoping I can re-purpose one of my older units for this purpose.
