Google’s Minijail sandboxing tool could be used by developers and sysadmins to run untrusted programs safely for debugging and security checks, according to Google Software Engineer Jorge Lucangeli Obes, who spoke last month at the Linux Security Summit. Obes is the platform security lead for Brillo, Google's Android-based operating system for Internet-connected devices.
I’m happy to announce that today we’re releasing Qubes OS 3.2!
This is an incremental improvement over the 3.1 version that we released earlier this year. A lot of work went into making this release more polished, more stable and easier to use than our previous releases.
One major feature that we’ve improved upon in this release is our integrated management infrastructure, which was introduced in Qubes 3.1. Whereas before it was only possible to manage whole VMs, it is now possible to manage the insides of VMs as well.
While the smallest in terms of revenue contribution, Asia is Red Hat's fastest growing region and is likely to continue its upwards trajectory as emerging markets roll out new infrastructure.
Developing nations in the region were embarking on many net new infrastructure projects, rather than replacement for existing technology, and open source would be involved in a large share of such projects. The decisions on which technology to deploy would rarely be between proprietary or open source, but rather on which open source vendor to go with or to do so internally, said Red Hat President and CEO Jim Whitehurst.
I've recently started getting more interested in Linux and I'm going to upgrade from my 2011 Macbook Pro to a Windows machine when the Kaby Lake laptops start showing up to dual boot Windows and Linux on.
I want to get a 2 in 1 machine and the Lenovo Yoga 710 is the machine I'm the most interested in, but I've seen a lot of posts here and on tech websites that Lenovo prevents you from installing other OS's on the Yoga due to something with the hard drive configuration? Is that true or is it just disinformation being spread around?
I've read that it has something to do with Microsoft Signature Edition machines, is the problem only affecting those machines?submitted by /u/Zalbu

Sony's Xperia X Compact is basically the newest version of the Z5 Compact that hit the US earlier this year. But just because it's a newer version of the (comparatively) tiny handset doesn't mean it's an upgrade in every way. Sony is pushing the camera sensors in the X Compact and the flagship-level XZ, as well as new features like five-axis image stabilization and HDR photo mode. Sony knows cameras, so we know the shooter in the X Compact will at least be competent. However, it has to be good enough to encourage photography buffs to shell out $499 for this unlocked handset while delivering solid performance across the board as well.
We already know that work on Linux Mint 18.1, the next major release of the popular Ubuntu-based operating system loved by many users, already begun, and Clement Lefebvre shares with us today some of the improvements coming to XApps.
Canonical, through Sergio Schvezov, announced the release of yet another maintenance update to the Snapcraft open-source utility that helps application developers package their apps as Snaps.
As LJ readers well know, Linux drives many of the technologies we use every day, from smart TVs to Web servers. Linux is everywhere—except most homes and classrooms.
That's a problem if we want to help breed the next generation of engineers and computer scientists. In fact, if teenagers (or any other group of curious individuals) want to learn about Linux, they often must rely on a geeky friend or parent willing to show them the way.
This three-part series seeks to change that by offering a way for anyone to learn about Linux by building what is essentially a tiny, self-contained Internet. Using old equipment and free software, you'll build a private network (with your own domain name), build Web sites, set up an e-mail server, install and use a database, and set up a Linux distro mirror.

I recently upgraded by 2x 1080p screen setup to a 4K display. Running Ubuntu with Unity ended up being very pleasant with good UI scaling. Unfortunately I kinda missed a second monitor so I decided to get a second 4K display (same model).
I arrived yesterday and I've noticed some concerning performance drops and I don't know where to attribute them.
Basically, when both 4K displays are enabled (one over DP, one over HDMI), I get significant lag on the HDMI display (only 30hz refresh rate) but the DP display also starts lagging, generally everything becomes more sluggish and unpleasant to use (I can record a video if you're interested).
The way I say it there are 4 things on my mind right now:
- Does anyone else have this setup and can confirm any problems? (Aka is it a Linux problem?)
- Is my CPU the bottleneck?
- Is my GPU the bottleneck?
- Is the HDMI connection causing issues?
- Phenom II X6, 1090T @ 3.8GHz (quite old and slow)
- Sapphire R9 380X, 4GB
- 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
- Running Kernel 4.8-rc7, Mesa 12.1, amdgpu
I'm wondering if some of you guys have similar setups as me (aka 2x 4K side by side) and if you're having problems. And if not, what hardware are you using?
I'm trying to narrow down the sources of potential problems to decide if I should send back the monitor or if it's worth upgrading a different component in my system to make it work. Thanks.submitted by /u/KateTheAwesome
I can try and do more coding, more code reviewing, revive designing discussions… that’s cool, yet never enough. GIMP needs more people, developers, designers, community people, writers for the website or the documentation, tutorial makers… everyone is welcome in my grand scheme!
Many of my actions lately have been towards gathering more people, so when I heard about the GNOME newcomers initiative during GUADEC, I thought that could be a good fit. Thus a few days ago, I had GIMP added in the list of newcomer-friendly GNOME projects, with me as the newcomers mentor. I’ll catch this occasion to remind you all the ways you can contribute to GIMP, and not necessarily as a developer.
