Myka sneaks BitTorrent into the living room

Filed under
Hardware OK, perhaps not so sneaky, there's a nice big BitTorrent logo right up front, but Myka seems to be quite the end-to-end solution for getting those torrents up on the big screen. The box hooks up to the internet via LAN or WiFi, includes a 80GB, 160GB or a 500GB drive for storage and runs a torrent client on Linux.

Mining Logs (Part 2)

Linux This article pursues the analysis of's logs I started one week ago. Last time, the data were prepared so that we could investigate the evolution, in time and space, of the popularity of GNU/Linux distributions. Pre-processing the logs in a different manner allows to focus on other interesting questions.

Operating systems are not cars

Filed under

blogbeebe.blogspot: Every once in a while I come across the argument being made that OS choice is like car choice. It's usually in a forum involving Linux, where one poster will lead off that there's too much choice and the follow-up will read something like "But how will we ever choose what car to buy and drive with all this choice.. it's too much.."

Thanks Ubuntu!

Filed under

lexlocilinux.blogspot: Until last night, I was not an Ubuntu fan. For various reasons, I preferred PCLinuxOS or Kubuntu over the Linux distribution juggernaut, Ubuntu. But last night, Ubuntu "pulled my fat out of the fire". Here's the story:

One reason Firefox 3 is going to be awesome - Auto-completion in the Location Bar

Filed under
Moz/FF I’m writing this today to rave about how cool this one particular feature, auto-completion in the Location Bar (or the Address Bar, you know, where you type in URLs), in Firefox 3 is.

MDV Mandriva 2008.1 RC2 has been out a few days and the reviews are coming in. My biggest concern with Mandriva was the memory issue. Mandriva is listening, and they have responded.

Theory confirmed : Intel and AMD about opensource

Filed under

Fabrice Facorat:When AMD begun to release specs for its GPU, I've read a theory about the fact that this move was motivated by the project to release hybrid CPU/GPU by AMD. Intel is now doing the same thing.

Curse Fedora, but you will be using their technologies

Filed under

clunixchit.blogspot: Recently at FOSDEM we had many visitors at the Fedora booth. Everyone in the Fedora team talked pretty much what they do at the Fedora Project to the public and how important it is, but I should rephrase my sentence "how important it is for the users".

Configuring Views in Konqueror

Filed under

ppenz.blogspot: In Konqueror for KDE 4.0 it was not possible configuring the views within the settings dialog. As Konqueror uses the Dolphin KPart, it was required to start Dolphin for this task. Well this nasty issue will be a thing of the past.

Linux Review - OpenSUSE 10.3

'Turbo Boost Max 3.0' and Mesa 17.2.4

  • Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Support For Skylake Fixed With Linux 4.15
    The platform-drivers-x86 updates have been sent in for Linux 4.15 and include a range of improvements for Intel hardware support. One of the bigger items is support for Skylake CPUs with Turbo Boost Max 3.0.
  • Mesa 17.2.4 Graphics Stack Lands for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10 Gamers
    Canonical's Timo Aaltonen reports on the availability of the Mesa 17.2.4 open-source graphics drivers stack on the X-SWAT updates PPA for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10 systems. Ubuntu systems have always lagged behind the development of the Mesa 3D Graphics Library, the Linux graphics stack containing open-source drivers for Intel, AMD Radeon, and Nvidia GPUs, but they usually catch up with it through a specially crafted PPA (Personal Package Archive) repository that can be easily installed by users.

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.
  • Firefox Quantum Now Available on openSUSE Tumbleweed, Linux 4.14 Coming Soon
    Users of the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling operating system can now update their computers to the latest and greatest Firefox Quantum web browser.
  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
