Linux

daniweb.com/blogs: The November election brings with it the promise of changes, new beginnings, and hope for those who've endured the past 8 years with less than an enthusiastic attitude.

Filed under
Software

linux.com: If you do your Debian package management from the command line, you are probably aware of utilities that search the cache of available programs, such as apt-cache, apt-file, and dpkg.

Filed under
Software

linsec.ca/blog: A recent post from Russ Coker entitled AppArmor is Dead was tolling the death bells for AppArmor because SUSE decided to include SELinux in their operating system… not as the default, and not as a replacement for AppArmor, but it was included nonetheless. Russ determined that this was the beginning of the end for AppArmor.

Filed under
Linux

raiden.net: One of the favorite, stand alone systems on Linux for producing your own Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, is MythTV. But for some, MythTV is a little too geek to be bothered with due its sometimes complex and cumbersome installation process, or issues with the distribution it's being installed on.

it.toolbox.com/blogs/locutus: It seems a funny name and just looking at it from a long list of over 20,000 choices does nothing to make it stand out. For all you know Yakuake could be some ancient Inca ritual. Well some ritual did inspire it but definitely not an Inca ritual.

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros).

An example systemd.service file is available.
