  • Open Source Security Podcast: Episode 133 - Smart locks and the government hacking devices

    Josh and Kurt talk about the fiasco hacks4pancakes described on Twitter and what the future of smart locks will look like. We then discuss what it means if the Japanese government starts hacking consumer IoT gear, is it ethical? Will it make anything better?

  • SMLR Episode 300 “Linux is Obsolete” ?
  • Episode 54 | This Week in Linux

    On this episode of This Week in Linux, the new Radeon VII beast from AMD is out and we’ll check out some benchmarks from our friends at Phoronix. A new version of KDE Plasma is coming out soon, in just a couple of days, so we will have a look at what is coming in KDE Plasma 5.15. We got some new app releases from LibreOffice and Flowblade and there was a bunch of Distro News this week from Fedora, SystemRescueCd, Redcore Linux, and some new distros or at least new to me with Linux Kodachi & Refracta. Later in the show, we’ll cover some Gaming Sales from Humble Bundle and Steam. All that and much more!

5 of the Best Linux Distros for Developers and Programmers

One of the reasons Linux is great is because of how flexible it is. For example, it can run on everything from servers to your old laptop to a Raspberry Pi. For this reason, it’s also a fantastic platform for developers. Whether you’re a seasoned developer or just using Linux to learn to program, you still have to choose a distribution. You could just choose Ubuntu and run with it, but there are plenty of “other options available to you.” Read more

How To Automatically Change GNOME Background In Intervals Using BASH

Have you ever wanted to have that automatic background switching feature on your GNOME Linux distro? I missed that feature after I switched from Cinnamon to GNOME :( Searched for apps in the software center and alas there is none that I could find. However, today I’m happy to let you know that there is a workaround to this missing feature through the use of BASH scripting language. Read more

Arm-based IoT gateway runs on Moxa Industrial Linux

Moxa announced a -40 to 85°C tolerant “UC-8200” IoT gateway that runs Moxa Industrial Linux on a dual-core, -A7 SoC and offers dual GbE, RS-232/422/485, and mini-PCIe links, plus a CAN port, WiFi/BT, and optional 4G LTE. Moxa, which announced its Cortex-A8-based UC 2100 series of Industrial IoT gateways last April, partially unveiled a new IIoT gateway called the UC-8200. The system features an unnamed dual-core, Cortex-A7 SoC that “has been optimised for use in energy monitoring systems but is widely applicable to a variety of industrial solutions,” according to the PR-like Control Engineering story that announced the product along with a shorter Industrial Ethernet Book post. Eventually, a product page should appear with missing details such as RAM and storage. Yet, even the product page for the similar UC-8100 series fails to describe the Cortex-A8 SoC. Other specs are complete, however, such as the earlier model’s 256MB to 512MB DDR3 and 8GB eMMC. (Update: LinuxGizmos reader Arnd Bergmann spotted the earlier UC-8100’s SoC family in the firmware image’s device tree. It’s a TI Sitara AM33x, perhaps one of the AM335x family, which runs on BeagelBone boards.) Read more Also: Arm Neoverse N1 & E1 Platforms Announced For Cloud To Edge Computing

OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 Beta

  • Leap 15.1 entering Beta phase
    Leap 15.1 entered the Beta phase with build 416.2 that reached the mirrors yesterday. Everyone is encouraged to download¹ the current builds and help testing. There are also live images to e.g. check hardware compatibility without installation. The Beta phase will last until mid April. Planned release is before the conference in May. Issues found need to be filed in Bugzilla². There is also a test plan³ to help coordinate the efforts. Feel free to fill in what you tested so we get an overview of what was covered already. Note that Leap 15.1 did not automatically sync with package versions in Factory. That is intentional as 15.1 is meant to be a minor update. Please submit any necessary bigger version updates the next two weeks to still have time for thorough testing. Please contact the release team⁴ in case of questions. Users of 42.3 please be aware that 42.3 reaches end of life a few weeks after the release of 15.1. In general an update to 15.1 directly is possible. It's recommended to participate in beta testing to make sure your specific workload or use case still works after an upgrade. cu Ludwig
