Reiser presents hard drives in court

Filed under
Reiser

Two hard drives that computer engineer Hans Reiser removed from one of his computers shortly after his estranged wife Nina disappeared on Sept. 3, 2006, were produced in court today by his attorney, William DuBois.

DuBois pulled the hard drives from a large envelope and gave them to Reiser to see if they fit into a computer that previously had been entered into evidence in his trial on charges that he murdered Nina, who had filed for divorce two years before she disappeared.

Reiser said they appeared to be the hard drives that he previously testified that he gave to DuBois shortly after Nina disappeared, probably on Sept. 7, 2006.
When he was cross-examined by prosecutor Paul Hora on March 20, Reiser said he removed the hard drives from his computer because he didn't want Oakland police to have access to them.

But he said that since he had revealed in court that DuBois had the hard drives, he expected they would be turned over to Hora soon. However, Hora on March 20 asked in a thundering voice, "What good are they now?"

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
