Raspberry Pi Foundation's Simon Long today announced that a major update is available for the main Linux kernel-based operating system for Raspberry Pi single-board computers.
As many of you might know already, Raspberry Pi Foundation unveiled their newest and most advanced SBC, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, on February 29, 2016, finally implementing a 64-bit processor, along with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.
Tibbo has his week unveiled a new Linux-based system they have created which is based on the based on the powerful 1GHz Cortex-A8 Sitara CPU from Texas Instruments and is a great with 512MB of RAM and 512MB of flash memory.
From time to time we read that governments don’t whole-heartedly move to GNU/Linux. India is different. Even their courts, full of serious conservative people are sending everyone to school for a day or two with their laptops to practise using Ubuntu GNU/Linux for desktop work and a Court Information System.
Today, May 13, 2016, we're continuing our "Watch" series of articles with a recent interview with Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel, in conversation with Dirk Hohndel, Chief Linux and Open Source Technologist at Intel.
In the 30-minute video keynote/interview attached below, courtesy of The Linux Foundation, which was recorded during the Embedded Linux Conference & OpenIoT Summit 2016 that took place last month between April 4 and April 6 in San Diego, California, USA, Linus Torvalds talks with Dirk Hohndel about everything Linux.
Immediately after announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.5.4, Linux kernel 4.4.10 LTS, Linux kernel 3.18.33 LTS, and Linux kernel 4.1.24 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman published details about the release of Linux kernel 3.14.69 LTS.
Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a collaborative open source project within the Linux Foundation working on a common, Linux-based software stack for the connected car and it’s secured the backing of some serious partners, according to an announcement this week. Movimento, Oracle, Qualcomm Innovation Center, Texas Instruments, UIEvolution and VeriSilicon have joined AGL, and that’s a huge endorsement for the open-source movement in connected car, an industry that’s been locked up in proprietary software for most of its life, largely because of security concerns.
Arduino LLC released a shield version of its Arduino Yún SBC, letting you add a WiFi and Linux to Arduino boards, along with Ethernet and USB ports.
The Arduino and Genuino Yún Shield peels off the OpenWrt-driven WiFi subsystem of the Arduino Yún SBC as a shield add-on, letting you add Internet access to other Arduino boards. The Arduino and Genuino Yún Shield is equipped with the same MIPS-based, 400MHz Atheros AR9331 WiFi SoC as the Arduino Yún and Arduino Yún Mini, the first Arduino SBCs to run Linux.
Many years ago, I was in a similar situation. I was dual-booting between Windows XP and one of the popular distros of that time. In my case, it was worth it to me to simply walk away from Outlook and start over. I did this by using one of those programs for Windows you mentioned, that convert PST files into mbox. The mbox file type is compatible with just about any email client, so I was able to get everything moved into Thunderbird without much trouble.
Greg Kroah-Hartman is second in command in the Linux kernel community. In addition to doing great work on device drivers, he also maintains the stable tree of the Linux kernel.
In his keynote presentation at CoreOS Fest in Berlin this week, Kroah-Hartman offered some inside perspective on just how massive the Linux kernel project is. And I also had a chance to sit down with him to talk about the kernel and security.
