Hardkernel tweaks its popular Odroid-C1 Pi clone

Ubuntu

Hardkernel’s Odroid project is shipping a replacement for its community-backed Odroid-C1 single-board computer, which debuted last December, and came in fourth place in this June’s LinuxGizmos/Linux.com Linux/Android SBC reader survey out of a field of 53. According to the project, the $37 C1+ “replaced” the original $35 C1 as of July, and the original cases and heatsink will not work with the C1+. Otherwise, processor, memory, and other details are the same, including the 40-pin GPIO connector, which is said to be compatible with later generation Raspberry Pi SBCs.

Kartesio 1.0: free best fitting for science labs is now stable

Filed under
KDE
Debian
Ubuntu

Kartesio is not based on KDElibs anymore. I made this choice basically for two reasons: the main one is that I wanted Kartesio to run easily also on Windows, and KDElibs building is way too much complex for my taste. The second reason is that KDE developers seemed not particularly interested in Kartesio: maybe that's because this program is designed for science laboratories (in high schools and universities, for example) and this is a way too limited set of users for KDE Edu. Obiously, it's still a program meant to be used on KDE when possible (I'm using Oxigen icons to give that wonderful KDE feeling). But if you really want to use it without KDE, it's not a problem anymore.

After being dissatisfied with the performance of the NVIDIA Linux driver as currently packaged on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, he resorted to using PPAs for getting the newer NVIDIA Linux driver. He's looking to build on that and to do a better job of testing and making available the newer binary blobs.

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots. Read more
