My adventure upgrading RHEL5 to RHEL6

Filed under
Linux

linsec.ca: I’ve begun the migration and probably picked the hardest machine to start with. One of my goals here was to do a clean migration from a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 box to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 box for a specific set of services, and to intentionally have SELinux in enforcing mode.

Interviews

linux-magazine.com: "I personally would love to see more folks getting involved in areas that don't necessarily require coding skills. I think that there is enormous room for growth and contribution in these areas, and there are plenty of Linux enthusiasts out there who have the skills and imagination to make great contributions in these places." ~ Robyn Bergeron

Desktop training harder than you'd think

unixmen.com: PinguyOS is for people that have never used Linux before or for people that just want an out-of-the-box working OS without doing all the tweaks and enhancements that everyone seems to do when installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu or other Linux based Distro's.

Still Think Linux Is Just for Start-Ups?

Filed under
Linux

serverwatch.com: That's the question the Financial Times was asking last week, and it's a rather strange question, when you think about it. It really begs another question: Was there ever, let alone still, anyone who thought Linux was "just for start-ups." Who would these people be?

Year of Linux (Unix)

Filed under
Linux

mb.com.ph: Every new year, pundits claim it to be the year of the Linux desktop. For as long as I can remember, it has been claimed to be Linux’s year for the past 5 years. Can 2011 be said to be the year of Linux for the Nth time? Maybe not on the desktop, but on others, perhaps it is!

You know you’re a CLI addict when

kmandla.wordpress: Your graphical desktops rely on terminal emulators for mundane tasks. I show that with a little bit of hesitation. I usually reserve console-based applications for machines that really need it.

FPGA add-on boards support Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black

Newark Element14’s new ValentFX Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone FPGA add-on boards for the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black feature Arduino and PMOD hooks. We first covered the Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone Logi-Boards back in Sept. 2013 when ValentFX showed off prototypes at the New York Maker Faire. The Logi-Boards, which integrate Xilinx SPARTAN-6 XC6SLX9 FPGAs, and plug into the Linux-based Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black hacker boards, respectively, have now reached market, thanks to a partnership with Newark Element14. ValentFX and Newark have also launched a $45.48 Logi-Edu educational board add-on that purports to teach everyday hackers the mysteries of FPGA. Read more

AT&T to begin selling LG G Pad F 8.0 Android tablet on May 29

After releasing its own branded 8-inch Android tablet a mere two weeks ago, AT&T is giving itself some fresh competition. The mobile carrier has announced that it's bringing the LG G Pad F 8.0 to its customers starting on May 29. What's Hot on ZDNet The new model should not be confused with the LG G Pad 8.3, which, while being an older tablet, offers a slightly larger, higher-resolution screen and a faster processor. Rather, it's more of a bigger sibling to the LG G Pad 7.0 that was released late last year, coming with the same 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (compared to the 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 inside the G Pad 8.3).

Review: Kubuntu 15.04 "Vivid Vervet"

This month has been quite busy for me with classes. Now that the semester is finally over, I have a little more time, and that means I have enough time to do a review. It has been a few years since I've reviewed Kubuntu, the officially-supported variant of Ubuntu that uses KDE. Moreover, Kubuntu now features KDE 5 (I know the KDE naming and numbering system has become a lot more complicated, so this is, as a physicist might say, an intentional abuse of notation) as stable for the first time, so I figured I should try this version. I tried it as a live USB made with UnetBootin. Follow the jump to see what it's like. (It should become progressively clearer through this review why there are no pictures.) Read more

Open source data integration with Karma

Karma is a free, an open source data integration tool that makes it easy to convert data from a variety of formats into linked data. I recently attended a half-day workshop on Karma with Pedro Szekely, our instructor. He started by warning us that he knows very little about libraries, but a ton about data. The files we needed for the workshop were on GitHub, if you’re interested in checking it out. You can follow the tutorial steps on the Wiki, and, of course, you can find Karma itself on GitHub.
