Plymouth To Replace USplash In Ubuntu?

Filed under
Software

We've talked about Plymouth now a number of times at Phoronix, which is Red Hat's RHGB replacement starting with Fedora 10 and uses newer Linux technologies like kernel mode-setting to drive this graphical boot screen. As we shared in our detailed analysis of Plymouth it also offers a number of plug-ins and APIs for creating some fairly unique visuals. Now it looks like Plymouth may make its way into Ubuntu.

There is now a Launchpad specification to evaluate Plymouth for Ubuntu and potentially use it to replacement the current USplash project.

I pray nobody takes the above information seriously.

That is some very impressive markov chains above.

The above text makes almost no sense, I don't think that anyone should attempt to make sense from what has been said. He makes some interesting joined statements, but fundamentally is making it up as he goes along.

re: the above

It's long been known that ATANG1 uses TM's website as a coded method to communicate with his mothership.

Most frequent visitors to TM have long ago gotten used to it, and have created both betting and drinking games involving who can come up with the closest real english translation or guess how many question marks will appear in each sentance.

Me, not only do I enjoy them, but I'm doing my third doctoral dissertation based on a statistical frequency analysis of ATANG1's posts (as it deals with random number generation).

So rock on ATANG1, rock on!

Impressive

He smokes a lot of weed.

Atang land etc.

My friends have standing bets on which will occur first:

1) vonskippy will express genuine humility;
or
2) Atang will stop the stream of consciousness postings by trying to be the James Joyce of the technical world, and he will finally discover the proper use of the question mark in the English language;
or
3) Poodles will finally move out of his mother's house.

Hackable $39 Allwinner A20 SBC packs HDMI and GbE

The $39 hackable “pcDuino3Nano” SBC runs Android or Ubuntu on a dual-core Allwinner A20 SoC, and offers GbE, HDMI, and 3x USB, plus Arduino-style expansion. It appears we have a new price/performance standout in the open source single board computer game. Longmont, Colorado based LinkSprite Technologies, which hosts the open source project for Allwinner-based pcDuino SBCs, has just announced a $39 board with a set of features that would typically go for about $60. The pcDuino3Nano offers the same dual-core, 1GHz Cortex-A7 system-on-chip and all the other features of the $77 pcDuino3 SBC except for the LVDS interface, I2S stereo digital audio output, and built-in WiFi. It also adds a second USB 2.0 host port, and upgrades the LAN interface from 10/100 to 10/100/1000 Ethernet. Read more

New Video Series Teaches Kids About Linux

Growing up in rural Utah, brothers Jared and JR Neilsen spent their free time recording videos that starred a cast of homemade puppets. As adults they've reconvened to create their own web series,Hello World, which aims to teach kids about computer science. The latest segment in the series, “Superusers: The Legendary GNU/Linux Show,” is focused on teaching Linux fundamentals. Puppets Adelie the penguin and Aramis the gnu lead kids on operating system adventures to teach topics such as how to use commands, write basic shell scripts, and find a file or directory. “We wanted to do something creative and fun, merging the adventures of our youth with our current interests in computer science,” Jared Neilsen said, via email. “It's a pastiche of things we love: puppets, surreal British comedy, philosophy, music, superhero cartoons, and Linux, of course.” Read more

Google's Chrome Strategy Heads in New Directions, Draws Linux Comparisons

Google's Chrome browser and Chrome OS operating system are grabbing headlines this week for several reasons. As Susan reported here, Matt Hartley said recently, 'Anyone who believes Google isn't making a play for desktop users isn't paying attention.' Hartley favors putting Linux in front of a lot of potential Chrome OS users, and says "I consider ChromeOS to be a forked operating system that uses the Linux kernel under the hood." Read more
