North Korea Laughably Copies Apple With New Linux Distro

Filed under

Red Star Linux, a Linux distribution used in North Korea, has been upgraded to version 3.0. With it comes an entire UI revamp, one that looks extremely similar to that of OS X. The menu buttons are placed on the lefthand corner of each window and many UI buttons have an “aqua” effect as seen in previous versions of OS X. Most notably however, is the addition of a dock on the bottom of the desktop that is almost identical to the dock seen in OS X.

  • IBM Cloud partner ecosystem expands in software push

    The scope of IBM's endeavor reaches across the channel, including global IT services firms and technology distributors selling to smaller resellers. Earlier this year, IBM reshaped its channel program to enlist partners in what the organization sees as a battle for the hybrid and multi-cloud market. Alliances with cloud partners have been a regular occurrence in 2020.

  • Fedora 32 : Can be better? part 013.

    I would say that I always have a problem with accessing the knowledge base related to errors, errors and configurations in Linux and Fedora distro. I think it would be very necessary to have as up-to-date documentation as possible in the Fedora distribution system and possibly a database based on questions and answers. That makes me think of the pilots' manuals ... where all the possible problems are listed.

  • Data Services for the open hybrid cloud deliver on the promise of cloud-native infrastructure

    Data is often the elephant in the room. It is obvious that applications are useless without data, that data is no less important now than it was at the dawn of computing, and that there’s no end in sight to the exponential growth of data. The term "exponential" is tossed about rather flippantly these days — it’s easy to lose sight of its basic mathematical implications — but some analysts suggest that more data will be created in the next three years than has been created in the last thirty.

  • App modernization five-part webinar series: Sign up today

    Our first webinar, Application modernization: Steps to take today, will examine the need for a cloud-native development strategy, reasons for moving to the cloud and lessons learned from our customers. Containerization to cloud-native will cover how to launch modernization journeys through container platform onboarding and how to extend those gains through cloud-native practices and technologies. Cloud-native integration will examine integration from a cloud-native perspective, through the lens of financial services customers. Later this year, we'll introduce DevOps for machine learning, which will address how to build intelligent applications by tying machine learning workloads into the same delivery pipelines that accelerate applications on container platforms. We’ll conclude with a webinar about a specific modernization project type. Intelligent customer engagement will cover a cloud native approach for real-time, customer-centric decisioning and automation.

  • Navigating the cloud opportunity: how service providers can win and retain customers in the hyperscale world

    Open source technologies can drive innovation, allowing customers to deliver more and exceed business expectations. And the growing customer interest in multicloud environments and consumption-based pricing models offers an opportunity for service providers that partner with Red Hat to meet evolving business needs. To investigate this trend further, Red Hat collaborated with CRN UK and Channelnomics Europe to identify insights into winning and retaining customers in the hyperscale world. The Red Hat-sponsored report includes the results of the survey of 150 EMEA decision makers, such as IT professionals, managers, directors and above, from industries including banking and finance, logistics, manufacturing, retail and education.

Laravel Programming

  • Laravel Collection Tutorial

    Laravel collection is a useful feature of the Laravel framework. A collection works like a PHP array, but it is more convenient. The collection class is located in the Illuminate\Support\Collection location. A collection allows you to create a chain of methods to map or reduce arrays. It is not changeable, and a new collection returns when the collection method is called. It is an API wrapper for PHP array functions and a collection can be generated from an array. This tutorial shows you how to create and use a collection in any Laravel project.

  • Laravel Eloquent ORM Tutorial

    Eloquent ORM (Object Relation Mapper) is easy to use for users who know how to use objects in PHP. The ORM is an important feature of the Laravel framework, considered a powerful and expensive feature of Laravel. The ORM works with database objects and is used to make relationships with database tables. Each table of the database is mapped with a particular eloquent model. The model object contains various methods to retrieve and update data from the database table. Eloquent ORM can be used with multiple databases by implementing ActiveMethod. This feature makes database-related tasks, such as defining relationships, simpler by defining the database tables. This tutorial explains how to apply Laravel Eloquent ORM in your Laravel projects.

  • Laravel Passport Tutorial

    Multiple authentication features are implemented in Laravel version 5.2. Different authentication systems are required to implement different routes that were time-consuming and inefficient. The same authentication system can be used for Web and API by using a token-based authentication feature. But this authentication system is not more secure for the application. Now, the authentication system of the Laravel application can be secured by using the new Passport authentication feature of Laravel. It uses two ENV which are the secrets of the Laravel passport OAUTH API. These are API_CLIENT_ID & API_CLIENT_SECRET. An access token generates for each user when Laravel passport is used and it allows the user to access some secure endpoints. How you can build a secure API authentication system by using Laravel passport and access authorized content are shown in this tutorial.

  • Use of Laravel Valet

    If you want to check how your Laravel project works online without publishing the project on any real server then you can use Valet or Homestead package to develop a visualized development environment. Homestead is used to develop a fully visualized Linux development environment with Nginx configuration and it consumes more resources. If you want to develop a fast local development environment with minimum resources then the Valet package is a good choice. It works with the Nginx web server. How you can install Valet on Ubuntu and use it to run your Laravel project online for certain times are shown in this article.

Intel Hardware and Linux Work

  • Intel Has Been Working On OpenCL C 3.0 Support For Clang

    Intel's compiler experts in Moscow have been working on OpenCL C 3.0 support for the LLVM Clang compiler front-end. OpenCL 3.0 allows much greater flexibility in making OpenCL 2.x era features optional. With this on the compiler-side it's not very invasive when already supporting OpenCL 2.x functionality but a matter in part of just making very features optional.

Great for academia, but what's more interesting to the masses that as part of that Intel and the University of Heidelberg are working to add oneAPI support for AMD Radeon GPUs.

  • Norbert Preining: Performance with Intel i218/i219 NIC

    I always had the feeling that my server, hosted by Hetzner, somehow has a slow internet connection. Then, I did put it on the distance between Finland and Japan, and didn’t care too much. Until yesterday my server stopped reacting to pings/ssh, and needed a hard reset. It turned out that the server was running fine, only that the ethernet card did hang. Hetzner support answered promptly and directed me to this web page, which described a change in the kernel concerning fragmentation offloading, and suggested the following configuration to regain connection speed: ethtool -K tso off gso off And to my surprise, this simple thing did wonder, and the connection speed improved dramatically, even from Japan (something like factor 10 in large rsync transfers). I have added this incantation to system cron tab and run it every hour, just to be sure that even after a reboot it is fine.
