Filed under
Hardware

The “Pangolin” would be System76’s second AMD-powered Linux laptop after the Serval WS, but this one also features integrated AMD Radeon graphics as the Serval WS came with Nvidia graphics.

At the moment of writing, System76 didn’t say much about their upcoming AMD-only Linux laptop except for the specs, which include either AMD Ryzen 5 4500U or AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPUs, AMD Radeon integrated graphics, up to 64 GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM, up to 8TB SSD storage, and a Full HD 15.6-inch matte finish display.

System76 “Pangolin” Linux Laptop

  • Meet Pangolin: A New AMD Ryzen-Powered Linux Laptop By System76

    A well-known Linux PC vendor System76 has finally unveiled its first fully AMD-powered Linux laptop called Pangolin.

    Unlike System76’s all previous laptops with Intel CPU (except Serval WS with AMD processor), a new Pangolin laptop features AMD Ryzen CPU with AMD Radeon integrated graphics.

  • System76 Bringing Out "Pangolin" As An AMD Renoir Linux Laptop

    Ever since AMD has been on a stellar trajectory with their hardware, users have been begging System76 to release an AMD Linux laptop... That's now finally coming with their upcoming Pangolin launch.

    System76 today disclosed Pangolin as their first AMD-powered laptop with Ryzen (Zen 2) CPU cores and Radeon graphics. In particular, the Pangolin comes with the option of the Ryzen 5 4500U or Ryzen 7 4700U and making use of the integrated Vega graphics.

  • System76 announce the AMD powered Pangolin with Ryzen and Radeon

    You asked, quite a lot actually and now System76 are going to be delivering with the all-AMD powered Pangolin. Considering the power of the newer generation AMD chipsets, it's not surprising that they've seen plenty of requests for a laptop powered by team red.

    While no formal press release has been made about it (that we've seen anyway?), they have announced it briefly on Twitter with a coming soon page. Interestingly, the Pangolin looks to be their most affordable laptop and one they're calling an "everyday laptop" with the price starting at $849.

System76 introduces Pangolin Linux laptop with Ryzen 4000U

  • System76 introduces Pangolin Linux laptop with Ryzen 4000U

    The next Linux laptop from System76 will be a model with a 15.6 inch display and support for up to an AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor.

    The System76 Pangolin laptop should be available soon for $849 and up.

    [...]

    AMD’s Ryzen 4000U series chips have earned a reputation for balancing strong performance with energy efficiency, enabling them to be used in thin and light laptops with reasonably long battery life.

    The System76 Pangolin has a 49 Wh battery and a body that measures 14.2″ x 9.4″ x 0.8″ and weighs 3.64 pounds.

    This won’t be the first Linux laptop powered by an AMD Renoir processor with Radeon graphics. It joins existing models including Tuxedo Aura 15 as well as model with higher-power Ryzen 4000H chips like the KDE Slimbook, Tuxedo Pulse 14 and Pulse 15. But the Pangolin is still a first for the US-based System76.

  • Kafka destination improved with template support in syslog-ng - Blog - syslog-ng Community - syslog-ng Community

    The C implementation of the Kafka destination in syslog-ng has been improved in version 3.30. Support for templates in topic names was added as a result of a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) project. The advantage of the new template support feature is that you no longer have to use a static topic name. For example, you can include the name of your host or the application sending the log in the topic name. From this blog you can learn about a minimal Kafka setup, configuring syslog-ng and testing syslog-ng with Kafka.

  • Partners Feel ‘Betrayed,’ ‘Taken Aback’ By Microsoft’s Direct Calls To Customers

    A California MSP learned a lesson years ago when a software vendor tried to go direct with his end users. So when Microsoft demanded contact information for his customers, he gave them an email address that went directly to him instead. Earlier this week that email account, which was set up about 18 months ago in the hopes that it would not be used, received a message from a Microsoft business development specialist offering his customer “free training.” “That’s exactly what I would do if I was trying to steal someone else’s business,” said the MSP, who asked not to be named because he fears retribution from Microsoft for speaking out. “It’s just wrong. It’s just wrong. Plain and simple.”

  • Windows 10 bug corrupts your hard drive on seeing this file's icon

    In August 2020, October 2020, and finally this week, infosec researcher Jonas L drew attention to an NTFS vulnerability impacting Windows 10 that has not been fixed. When exploited, this vulnerability can be triggered by a single-line command to instantly corrupt an NTFS-formatted hard drive, with Windows prompting the user to restart their computer to repair the corrupted disk records. The researcher told BleepingComputer that the flaw became exploitable starting around Windows 10 build 1803, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, and continues to work in the latest version. What's worse is, the vulnerability can be triggered by standard and low privileged user accounts on Windows 10 systems.

  • Open source software security in an ICT context – benefits, risks, and safeguards

    In a recent report, contributors to free and open source software (FOSS) claimed they spent only 2.27 percent of their contribution time on security. In our latest blog post, we delve into open source software security, and discuss why it’s key for building robust and open interoperable networks. [...] Is open source software better than proprietary software when it comes to security vulnerabilities? Elias Levy, the person behind the infamous (vulnerability) full disclosure mailing list, Bugtraq, said two decades ago: “No. Open Source Software certainly does have the potential to be more secure than its closed source counterpart. But make no mistake, simply being open source is no guarantee of security”. Building and delivering complex system software without security vulnerabilities requires investment and due diligence, regardless if the code is open sourced or proprietary (see figure 1, below). As the Mozilla Foundation states: “Security is a process. To have substantial and lasting benefit, we need to invest in education, best practices, and a host of other areas”. Tools and resources are available. With safeguards in place, OSS can be used effectively at low risk to realize its intended benefits. ICT products relying on OSS must be developed using methodologies and safeguards that ensure the expected level of security is met. OSS can accelerate innovation, reduce the development timeline, speed time to market, realize cost savings, and be secure. ICT vendors must take responsibility and practice a higher level of due diligence when using OSS components.

  • Email is the messenger you should migrate to

    But the most important thing: Delta Chat allows you to communicate even with people who don’t use Delta Chat at all, all you need is an email address! If you write to someone without Delta Chat, they will just get a normal email. I would argue that even beats Matrix or XMPP.

    Conclusion: If you are concerned about security when chatting and would rather use a decentralized messenger (no silo), you are in good hands with email and Delta Chat.

  • Looking into Linux user logins with lslogins

    One convenient way to list details about user logins on a Linux system is to use the lslogins command. You'll get a very useful and nicely formatted display that includes quite a few important details. On my system and likely most others, user accounts will start with UID 1000. To list just these accounts rather than include all of the service accounts like daemon, mail and syslog, add the -u option as shown in the example below.
