4MLinux 37.0 Distro Released, Powered by Linux Kernel 5.10 LTS with Reiser4 Support

Filed under
Linux

More than four months in development, 4MLinux 37.0 is here with support for more software that you can install via extensions, since this is a modular Linux distro. The new apps that you can install in this release are the Dmidecode tool for reading hardware-related data from SMBIOS, FluidSynth software synthesizer with VMPK (Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard, HandBrake video transcoder, and qBittorrent BitTorrent client.

Under the hood, there are even better news as 4MLinux 37.0 is powered by the long-term supported Linux 5.10 LTS kernel series, which has been patched to support the Reiser4 file system. This means that you should be able to install 4MLinux on a Reiser4 formatter drive, but also to handle such disk drives.

Astro Pi 2: New Raspberry Pi hardware with updated camera, sensors to head to the ISS this year

Good news for earthbound Pi-tinkerers hoping to get their code into orbit: a follow-up to 2015's Astro Pi is due to head to the International Space Station (ISS) this year. Time has moved on a bit since the Principia mission of Tim Peake where the first units were installed aboard the orbiting outpost. While over 54,000 participants from 26 countries have since had code run on the hardware, the kit has fallen somewhat behind what is available on Earth. To that end, some new units are due to be launched, replete with updated hardware. In this case, heading to orbit will be Raspberry Pi 4 Model B units with 8GB RAM, the Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera (a 12.3MP device) and the usual complement of gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, humidity, temperature and pressure sensors for users to code against.
