Greenwashing galore from 'Linux' Foundation

  • Goldman Sachs joins Linux Foundation push for Open Source climate data - Geospatial World [Ed: Greenwashing galore from 'Linux' Foundation, on behalf of people who bankroll or fund the world's biggest polluters]

    OS-Climate today announced that Goldman Sachs has joined its cross-industry coalition seeking to shift global investment toward zero-carbon emissions through the development of comprehensive data sets and evaluation tools that are available to all. We expect Goldman Sachs to provide critical expertise in climate risk, product development, and financial reporting that will result in better tools to help all companies, asset managers, and investors more consistently and effectively evaluate progress against decarbonization goals.

Linux Foundation to take over Facebook's Magma

  • Linux Foundation to take over Facebook's Magma

    Today, the Linux Foundation announced that it will launch an open source industry collaboration focused on enabling a converged cellular core network stack, starting with the Magma open source software platform. Previously open sourced by Facebook in 2019, Magma will now be managed under a neutral governance framework at the Linux Foundation.

  • DT warms to Linux Foundation’s Magma mobile core stack

    Deutsche Telekom (DT) is supporting a effort by the Linux Foundation – a new group tasked with developing an open source, packet core stack for mobile, extending LF’s Magma platform.

    Facebook contributed Magma to the open source community in 2019. It is a mobile packet core platform suitable for carrier Wi-Fi, private wireless networks and fixed wireless access (FWA) deployments as well as 4G/LTE and 5G.

Facebook’s open mobile packet core project to reside at Linux Fn

  • Facebook’s open mobile packet core project to reside at Linux Foundation

    The open source project Magma, which has developed mobile core network software, is coming under the management of the Linux Foundation.

    Magma, which was open sourced by Facebook in 2019, will now be managed under a neutral governance framework at the Linux Foundation.

    The Magma mobile packet core software can be used to set up private wireless networks, for carrier Wi-Fi, for mobile broadband or even for fixed wireless access (FWA) deployments.

    The software is access-agnostic, making it suitable for mobile carriers, cable operators, telcos or startups such as community internet providers.

The Open-Source Magma Project Will Become 5G's Linux

Magma could be the Linux of 5G

  • Magma could be the Linux of 5G

    Magma seems to be getting the backing of open sourcers to become the Linux of 5G.

    Ironically, Facebook developed the software to help telecom operators deploy mobile networks quickly and easily. The project, which Facebook open-sourced in 2019, does this by providing a software-centric distributed mobile packet core and tools for automating network management.

    This containerised network function integrates with the existing back end of a mobile network and makes it easy to launch new services at the network edge. Magma operators can build and augment modern and efficient mobile networks at scale.

Linux Foundation Takes Control Of Facebook’s Magma Project

  • Linux Foundation Takes Control Of Facebook’s Magma Project

    Linux Foundation has announced that it will launch an open source industry collaboration focused on enabling a converged cellular core network stack, starting with the Magma open source software platform. Previously open sourced by Facebook in 2019, Magma will now be managed under a neutral governance framework at the Linux Foundation.

    Arm, Deutsche Telekom, Facebook, FreedomFi, Qualcomm, the Institute of Wireless Internet of Things at Northeastern University, the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance, and the Open Infrastructure Foundation, will join the collaboration as founding members to accelerate the path to production use cases at scale.

  • Goldman Sachs and Linux Foundation partner democratize climate data via OS-Climate platform

    Goldman Sachs has joined Linux Foundation's push to democratise climate data through the building of the OS-Climate platform.

    The investment bank and financial services company is expected to provide expertise in climate risk, product development, and financial reporting that will result in “better tools to help companies, asset managers, and investors consistently evaluate progress against decarbonisation goals”.

Facebook’s Magma Gains Momentum Under The Linux Foundation

  • Facebook’s Magma Gains Momentum Under The Linux Foundation

    Facebook recently moved its open-source project Magma into the Linux Foundation as a new top-level foundation. Why is Facebook contributing the project to the Linux Foundation? What impact will it have on the project? There are already many networking-related foundations within the Linux Foundation so why is Magma becoming a stand-alone foundation? I sat down with seasoned Open Source entrepreneur, Boris Renski, CEO of FreedomFi, to talk about the project. FreedomFi is one of the founding members of the new foundation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.

Red Hat Hires a Blind Software Engineer to Improve Accessibility on Linux Desktop

Accessibility on a Linux desktop is not one of the strongest points to highlight. However, GNOME, one of the best desktop environments, has managed to do better comparatively (I think). In a blog post by Christian Fredrik Schaller (Director for Desktop/Graphics, Red Hat), he mentions that they are making serious efforts to improve accessibility. Starting with Red Hat hiring Lukas Tyrychtr, who is a blind software engineer to lead the effort in improving Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Fedora Workstation in terms of accessibility. Read more
