"We all have our favorite distro(s), so here's an opportunity to tell the world about your pick of the bunch," the Linux Voice article begins.
"What made you choose it? Did you come across it by accident, or was it recommended to you?" the introduction reads. "Have you been running it since your first forays into the world of Linux, or is it a more recent discovery? And do you plan to stick with it for a while?"
Is Intel doing more than many of the other major vendors when it comes to facilitating Android implementation?
The answer, quite possibly, is yes.
Anyone signed up for the Intel developer newsletters will receive a string of alerts from the company we used to know as the "chip giant" -- is it now becoming the "software giant"?
Imagination has joined with Broadcom, Ingenic, Qualcomm, and others to form a non-profit group called “Prpl” to build MIPs-based Linux and Android software.
With Prpl, Imagination Technologies aims to replicate some of the success of rival ARM’s Linaro non-profit firm, which has helped to stabilize and standardize Linux and Android code across a variety of licensed platforms. Just as ARM formed Linaro with many of its licensees, Imagination has tapped MIPS licensees like Broadcom, Cavium, and Ingenic Semiconductor as founding members.
BFQ is a proportional-share I/O scheduler that shares a lot of code with the CFQ scheduler. The Completely Fair Queuing (CFQ) scheduler has long been part of the mainline tree but BFQ hasn't been pulled yet even after many revisions and comments. The next opportunity for BFQ to land would be with the Linux 3.16 kernel whose merge window will be opening in June. New features of BFQ with the latest work includes low latency for interactive applications, low latency for soft real-time applications, high throughput, strong fairness guarantees, etc.
Since writing about the features of the Catalyst 14.6 Beta earlier today, the x86/x86_64 proprietary Linux driver has surfaced on a third-party web-site for those wishing to try out this latest AMD Linux graphics driver.
As explained this morning, Catalyst 14.6 Beta for Linux comes with official Ubuntu 14.04 LTS support, driver installer improvements, and various bug-fixes as the primary changes.
Technologic Systems has released an open-spec SBC that runs Debian Linux on a Freescale i.MX286 SoC with 0.6-1.3W power draw, and optional GPS and cellular.
Technologic’s new TS-7670 single board computer uses the same Freescale i.MX286 system-on-chip found in its recently announced TS-7400-V2 SBC. The i.MX286 has an ARM926EJ-S core clocked from 261MHz to 454MHz, which can be adjusted on the fly on the TS-7670.
As usually, Kali Linux 1.0.7 features various new tools, updated applications, as well as numerous fixes in order to make Kali Linux a more stable and reliable Linux operating system. This includes a new version of the Linux kernel, among other things.
There are numerous Linux distributions in the open source ecosystem, but there are very few built specifically for penetration testing and digital forensics. The former iteration of this distro, BackTrack, is one of the most downloaded OSes and it's the go-to operating system when you need a professional solution.
Techtalk discussed the open source operating system Linux and where you can go to learn more about it.
"The short answer is that as far as courses are concerned they are a little bit thin on the ground. There used to be a group called Ballarat Linux Users Group... there is also a group called Viclan which runs local area administration".
"Linux is a free open source operating system that is probably described as an alternative to Windows. It's free, you can download it and it runs on most PC's. Apple is excluded at this point in time but most PC's that run Windows will run Linux".
