I'm announcing the release of the 4.10.11 kernel.
All users of the 4.10 kernel series must upgrade.
The updated 4.10.y git tree can be found at:
and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
Also: Linux 4.9.23
NodeSource is releasing a distribution of its enterprise-level, commercially supported NSolid Node.js runtime that works with Docker-friendly Alpine Linux. NSolid for Alpine Linux is intended to work with Alpine’s small footprint and security capabilities, said Joe McCann, NodeSource CEO.
CNC Design’s “Pulse Train Hat” is a Raspberry Pi add-on that generates variable frequency pulses for automation systems such as stepper/servo motors.
CNC Design Limited has launched a Pulse Train Hat (PTHAT) add-on board for the Raspberry PI designed to “make motor control easy, fast and accurate.” The Raspberry Pi HAT compliant board lets customers use simple serial ASCII commands to generate clean, fast and accurate variable frequency pulses. The chief application is to drive stepper/servo motors that use pulse and direction lines, such as motors found in 3D printers, CNC machines, and robot arms.
ExTiX 17.4 – “The Ultimate Linux System” – with LXQt 0.11.1, Nvidia 381.09 and kernel 4.10.0-19-exton – Build 170418Submitted by Roy Schestowitz on Tuesday 18th of April 2017 03:59:34 PM Filed under
I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 17.4 LXQt Live DVD. (The previous version was 17.2 from 170320).
I've debated for quite some time setting up my own more generalised Linux and technology site, so screw it, I did it. Announcing LifeOnLinux.com as a new experiment!
To be clear: GamingOnLinux will stay exactly the same and keep improving as it always does. LifeOnLinux costs nothing extra to run and it's mainly an experiment right now.
It will have the same basic principles as GOL itself: No bullshit, no adverts, no clickbait, SSL for everyone for free and it will keep things simple and to the point as much as possible. It will accept user contributed articles too, just like GOL does.
Recently, feeling restricted by the hardware on my laptop, I built myself a desktop computer based on a recently released Ryzen CPUs by AMD. These CPUs are built on a new architecture, plug into a new sort of socket and have a whole new ecosystem around them.
This time it's happening in one specific place: cheap computers. And the fight for it is going to be as brutal and fascinating as the ones we've seen before. The players aren't surprising at all: Google, Apple, and Microsoft.
You may consider Linux gamers have many reasons to smile. And to an extent you’re right. Gaming on Linux has come on leaps and bounds from the days of tinkering in Wine and exploiting unorthodox workarounds. When Valve Corporation launched Steam for the open source operating system, the gaming scene transmogrified. Gaming became big business. With a slew of native AAA ports, Linux is blessed with bags of stonking games. Native ports of Dying Light, Civilization 6, XCOM 2 are just a handful of thousands of Linux games available on Steam.
Axiomtek’s PICO313 Pico-ITX SBC extends Intel’s Apollo Lake SoCs with 2x mini-PCIe slots, 2x homegrown connectors, and an I/O board with real-world ports.
The 100 x 72mm PICO313 can be considered as a more “embedded” spin of the similarly Intel Apollo Lake based PICO312 Pico-ITX board. The only real-world coastline ports are available on a separate I/O expansion card. The new board also removes an HDMI port and adds a second mini-PCIe slot among other variations.
I landed the VC4 V3D fencing code last week. This allows drivers like tinydrm (for the little SPI-attached panels for Raspberry Pi) or PL111 (for my bcm911360 phone) to correctly synchronize display pageflipping to V3D rendering. In the process of writing my V3D code, I found a bug and my reviewers found a cleanup, which I have also submitted for msm and etnaviv.
Eric Anholt of Broadcom has shared his latest work on the open-source Linux VC4 driver stack for primarily benefiting the Raspberry Pi.
Of course, he couldn’t resist saying that his opinion won’t be a popular choice. “‘Switch to Linux’ is an unpopular option to raise in a Windows centric subreddit, as the downvotes on my previous comment indicates [sic]. But it is still a valid option for certain people. If any of you reading this are unsatisfied with Windows, and if Linux fits the bill for your use case, give it a shot,” he dared to invite others to the other side too.
Recently, I had an issue with a P2V VM (physical PC converted to virtual machine) where /home was running out of space and needed to be expanded. My /home in this case was a completely separate virtual disk (sdb) that was 10GB, and I needed to restore a multiple-GB Thunderbird email archive.
Solus Project proudly announced a few moments ago the release and immediate availability for download of the Solus 2017.04.18.0 ISO snapshot of the independently developed operating system.
Containing all the latest package updates that have been released on the stable channels of the distribution, Solus 2017.04.18.0 is here today as the most up-to-date installation mediums, allowing users to either reinstall their systems or deploy the OS on new PCs without having to download hundreds of MB of updates.
