Linux Sea, an online book on Gentoo Linux

Filed under

With the summer at hand and my daughter on the way, I thought it would be a good idea to put the current work for this (end-user) document online. On my developer page you can find the current draft of Linux Sea, a book on Gentoo Linux (technical, not the philosophy or any kind - a technical book for end users).

As I said, it's still in draft phase.

The book is available under a Creative Commons - Attribution, Share Alike, Non Commerial license. Once it is more final, I will put PDFs online as well.

Of course, feedback is, as always, appreciated.

4 Tools for Network Snooping on Linux

Computer networking data has to be exposed, because packets can't travel blindfolded, so join us as we use whois, dig, nmcli, and nmap to snoop networks. Do be polite and don't run nmap on any network but your own, because probing other people's networks can be interpreted as a hostile act. Read more

Google’s Fuchsia OS on the Pixelbook: It works! It actually works!

Google currently has two OSes on the market: Android and Chrome OS. The company is never one to leave a successful product alone in the marketplace, though, so it's also developing a third operating system called "Fuchsia." When we last checked in on the experimental OS in May 2017, calling it an "OS" was a bit of a stretch. We only got the system UI up and running on top of Android, where it then functioned like an app. The UI offered a neat multi-window system, but mostly it was just a bunch of placeholder graphics. Nothing worked. It has been hard to check in on Fuchsia since. The Fuchsia system UI, which was written with a cross-platform SDK called "Flutter," quickly shut down the Android (and iOS) compatible builds. Fuchsia has a Vulkan-based graphics stack, and no emulator supports the new-ish graphics API. The only way to get Fuchsia up and running again was with actual hardware, and the only supported devices were Intel NUC PCs from 2015 and the Acer Switch Alpha 12 laptop. Read more
