i've just installed dreamlinux and i don't know well how it works. i saw in the web site how to mount the devices using the right clicking but in output when i try: impossible to find the mount point for /dev/hdb, and similar. I also try modify the text in fstab but nothing.I also can't see the folder for the devices when i open the computer icon on the desktop

Android mini-PC jumps on Cortex-A17 trend

Tronsmart has launched an $80-and-up “Orion R28″ mini-PC that runs Android 4.4 on a quad-core, Cortex-A17 Rockchip RK3188 SoC clocked at 1.8GHz. Like Ugoos, Tronsmart has tapped Rockchip system-on-chips such as the quad-core, Cortex-A9 RK3188, which fuels its Android-ready Tronsmart T428 stick computer. Tronsmart’s latest mini-PC — the Orion R28 — advances to Rockchip’s quad-core RK3288 SoC, which uses the Cortex-A17 architecture, a faster, smaller, and more power efficient heir to the Cortex-A9. The SoC has already appeared in the Rikomagic MK902II and the Ugoos UT3 mini-PCs. Read more

Parallels to line up with Linux containers

Parallels is working to bring its automation, security and management wares to the burgeoning world of Linux containerisation.

Systemd Controversy Not Going Away Quietly

If you thought the systemd argument was settled, I'm not sure you'd be correct. Paul Venezia is back on the case today saying folks are continuing to blog, thread, mailing list, and forum about their problems with systemd.

Simplicity Linux 14.10 Alpha Is an OS Based on Slacko 5.9.3 and Linux kernel 3.15.4

The developers of Simplicity Linux have based their system on Slacko 5.9.3 and they are using the 3.15.4 Linux kernel. This kernel is one of the newest available and should provide adequate hardware support for the latest devices. Also, unlike previous releases in the series, the new version covers only two flavors, Netbook and Desktop. The Netbook flavor is a simpler operating system, with fewer default applications and an accessible desktop experience. It's also a smaller ISO, so users won't need too much space for the actual size of the Linux distribution. Read more
