  • Rockstor 3.8-15 Linux and Btrfs-Powered Open Source NAS Solution Now Available

    It's been almost five months since Rockstor 3.8 open-source and free Linux-based NAS (Network-Attached Storage) operating system received an update, and project developer Suman Chakravartula informed us about the release of Rockstor 3.8-15.

    Rockstor 3.8-15 appears to be a substantial update that closes a total of 43 issues reported by users since Rockstor version 3.8-14 announced on the 20th of June 2016, and it also looks like it's the 30th release of the GNU/Linux distribution that uses Btrfs as default file system.

  • IPFire 2.19 Linux-Based Firewall OS Patched Against "Dirty COW" Vulnerability

    On November 8, 2016, Michael Tremer from the IPFire project, an open source initiative trying to produce a hardened, professional, secure, and easy-to-use Linux-based firewall operating system, announced the release of IPFire 2.19 Core Update 107.

    IPFire 2.19 Core Update 107 is the latest, most stable and advanced version of the IPFire 2.19 series, and it looks like it finally patches that nasty "Dirty COW" Linux kernel vulnerability that was fixed by Linus Torvalds himself awhile ago in all supported Linux kernel branches.

    "This update patches the IPFire Linux kernel against a recently disclosed vulnerability called Dirty COW. This is a local privilege escalation bug which could be used by a local attacker to gain root privileges," said Michael Tremer in the release announcement for the IPFire 2.19 Core Update 107 update.

  • Alpine Linux 3.4.6 Updates PHP, BusyBox, and cURL, Uses Linux Kernel 4.4.30 LTS

    A new stable release of the open-source, server-oriented Alpine Linux operating system has been announced on the 8th of November 2016, bringing a brand new kernel and many up-to-date components.

    Alpine Linux 3.4.6 is the sixth maintenance update in the stable 3.4 series of the GNU/Linux distribution used in numerous smaller or big server environments worldwide, and it comes only two weeks after the 3.4.5 release to bump the kernel version to the latest upstream release, namely Linux kernel 4.4.30 LTS, which was a minor update patching a bug in Linux kernel 4.4.29 LTS and older builds.

  • NetBSD machines at Open Source Conference 2016 Tokyo/Fall
  • My First International FOSS Event: FUDCon Cambodia

    It was a privilege to be a speaker at FUDCon, Cambodia 2016. This being my first international FOSS event was ever more exciting. Right from the day I received the invitation from Sirko, I felt extremely privileged. On reaching the place I found that the event was much bigger than what I had expected it to be. There was a bar camp being organised by the university with over 5000 participants. Simply speaking it was a grand and huge occasion.

  • Endace Sponsors Open Source Suricata Conference

    Endace, a world leader in high-speed network monitoring and recording technology, is a sponsor of Suricon, which kicks off on Wednesday November 9th at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza in Washington D.C. Suricon, which draws attendees from around the world (including Suricata project contributors, developers and users), is the annual conference for the community behind the popular open-source intrusion detection (IDS) application, Suricata.

  • Message parsing and community building: All Things Open 2016

    Last week I visited All Things Open, one of the largest open source conferences of the US East Coast. The venue was the monumental building of the Raleigh Convention Center, just two blocks from Red Hat’s headquarters. I was presenting syslog-ng in the Operations track of the conference, but luckily I had a chance to stay for the full two days of the event.

    There were over 2400 visitors at the conference, so registration and check-in already started the day before. Those who leveraged this opportunity could not just avoid the crowd next morning, but also receive a nice t-shirt together with the conference badge:

Filed under

Linux

Some nice additions have been made to Marius Quabeck's amazing Magic-Device-Tool utility that lets smartphone and tablet users install various Linux-based mobile operating systems.

It's been a little over two weeks since our last report about Magic-Device-Tool, and even if Marius Quabeck is extremely busy with the preparations for the upcoming UbuCon Europe 2016 international European Ubuntu conference, which will take place between the 18th and 20th of November 2016, in Essen, Germany, he's still updating the utility.

And it looks like the newest Magic-Device-Tool update adds support for the recently released Maru OS 0.3 open-source operating system that lets you run Android software on your phone while providing a Debian desktop. Best of all, it looks like you'll be able to install Maru OS 0.3 with or without Open GApps, a project that helps you install Google Apps on custom Android ROMs.
