Filed under
HowTos

This article introduces Conga, a new application released as part of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 5. Walk through setting up your cluster and storage systems properly. Preview some of the major features of this new clustering and storage management tool.

The problem: Multiple cluster and storage system management tools

In the past, in order to create and manage complex clusters and storage systems you had to make use of multiple managements tools. Conga solves the problem of individually installing and managing storage systems and cluster nodes.

Conga grew out of the lineage of GUI applications developed to support storage and clusters. Tools such as red-hat-cluster, system-config-cluster, deploy-tool, and system-config-lvm are examples of Conga’s heritage. “Conga addresses a number of ‘pain points’ customers encountered in our earlier X/Gtk management applications.”

  • AMDGPU DC Code Lands For Linux 4.15 Kernel
    Linus Torvalds has accepted the AMDGPU DC display code pull request for the Linux 4.15 kernel. AMD Linux users can now rejoice! Overnight David Airlie sent in the AMDGPU DC pull request for Linux 4.15 and since then Linus Torvalds was active on the kernel mailing list ranting about AMD header files and other unrelated to DC code. He was also pulling in other PRs... It was getting a bit worrisome, given the DC code not being in pristine shape, but it was exciting as heck to see this evening that he did go ahead and pull in the 132 thousand lines of new kernel code to land this AMDGPU DC. Linus hasn't provided any commentary about DC on the kernel mailing list as of writing.
  • Radeon VCN Encode Support Lands In Mesa 17.4 Git
    It's an exciting day for open-source Radeon Linux users today as besides the AMDGPU DC pull request (albeit still unmerged as of writing), Radeon VCN encoding support has landed in Mesa Git.
  • The - Hopefully - Final Stab At Intel Fastboot Support
    Intel's Maarten Lankhorst has sent out what could be the final patches for enabling "fastboot" support by default within their DRM graphics driver.

Raspberry Digital Signage 10

It shows web pages from Internet, LAN or internal sources (a WordPress installation comes already installed by default on the SD card); there is no way to escape this view but rebooting the machine. Marco Buratto has released Raspberry Digital Signage 10.0 today, which comes with the latest and greatest Chromium build (featuring advanced HTML5 capabilities, Adobe Flash support and H264/AVC video acceleration), so you can display more attractive resources, more easily.
