  • Automated Tuning Of Linux Audio

    Audio systems in Linux are terrible. You’ve never known true pain until you’ve tried to set up a recording or broadcasting workstation running Linux. I did, twenty years ago, and nothing has changed since. This wasn’t really a problem when Linux was either used in server spaces or some nerd’s battle station, but now we have small single board computers that everyone uses and wants to turn into a modular synth. Welcome to paintown, because the Linux audio stack is terrible.

    For the past ten years, [Dynobot] has been working on improving audio in Linux. This is a decade of reading manuals from IBM and Oracle, and a deep knowledge of how to adjust settings so audio actually works. All of this work is now combined into a single script that improves everything. This means the priority of the Audio group is changed, the thread priority is better, the latency is better, and for anyone who wants to set up a local streaming service, the network latency is better. It’s not everything, and there’s no mention of recording multitrack audio, but we’ll accept the baby steps here.

Only the Gnome desktop is supported.

  • Why I don’t care about CPU architecture: my emotional journey

    When OSNews covered the RISC V architecture recently, I was struck by my own lack of excitement. I looked into it, and the project looks intriguing, but it didn’t move me on an emotional level like a new CPU architecture development would have done many years ago. I think it’s due to a change in myself, as I have got older. When I first got into computers, in the early 80s, there was a vibrant environment of competing designs with different approaches. This tended to foster an interest, in the enthusiast, in what was inside the box, including the CPU architecture. Jump forwards to the current era, and the computer market is largely homogenized to a single approach for each class of computing device, and this means that there is less to get excited about in terms of CPU architectures in general. I want to look at what brought about this change in myself, and maybe these thoughts will resonate with some of you.

    [...]

     

    So, this raises the question, is there any rational reason to care about the CPU architecture nowadays, and thinking about that, was there ever?

  • An “Open Pay Wall”, has Medium lost its mind?

    Today’s attempt to transform Medium into a walled garden is, at best, stupid and dangerous. But it is a reminder that we should never trust a centralised place.

    When Medium started to launch a paying subscription, not knowing yet what to offer to pay members, I thought they understood it. I happily jumped on the wagon and spent $5 a month to support the platform.

    Finally, a platform was reacting to the “free ad myth”, the fantasy that ads provide money without having to return anything in exchange. Finally, someone was acknowledging that advertising was hurting our brains and transforming every content creator into a sausage salesperson. It was time for creators to be paid directly by people consuming their work.

  • Why old-school printed books may be better than e-books for teaching kids to read

    Parents and toddlers chat more as they read printed stories together compared to when they share electronic books, a new study from the University of Michigan found. Researchers say those conversations can be instrumental in teaching children to read and express themselves.

  • Do we really own our digital possessions?

     

    My research has found that many consumers do not consider these possibilities, because they make sense of their digital possessions based on their previous experiences of possessing tangible, physical objects. If our local bookstore closed down, the owner wouldn't knock on our door demanding to remove previously purchased books from our shelves. So we do not anticipate this scenario in the context of our eBooks. Yet the digital realm presents new threats to ownership that our physical possessions haven't prepared us for.
     

    Consumers need to become more sensitised to the restrictions on digital ownership. They must be made aware that the "full ownership" they have experienced over most of their physical possessions cannot be taken for granted when purchasing digital products. However, companies also have a responsibility to make these fragmented ownership forms more transparent.

  • SUSE Manager 4.0 Beta 2 is out!

    With the first version you are able to create content projects, select a custom set of software channels as sources and create a lifecycle made of environments.
    Once you have selected some sources you can build the selected set which will populate the first environment. After the the first environment is built you can promote it through the environment lifecycle to the next environment in the loop.
    The result of the build (therefore the content of every environment) is a channel tree (made of cloned software channels of the sources selection) and you can assign systems to it.

  • Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter Issue 573
  • Career Guidance For Young People: A Retrospective

    At a conference in London, I had a non-zero number of beers with two editors who were launching a new Linux magazine called Linux Format. I plucked up the courage to ask if I could write an article and they said, “Yes, but if it is shit, we won’t publish it”. This seemed like a fair arrangement.

    The article passed muster and it went into the magazine. I started writing more and more and when I completed university, I decided to be a full time writer. It didn’t pay much, but I loved what I did, and it earned enough money to support the relatively frugal life my girlfriend and I lived. This is when I got the first taste of being able to devote my career to something I loved, and it was an amazing feeling.

    One of the articles I wrote was about a newly minted organization in Birmingham called OpenAdvantage. They were focused on training people in the West Midlands in Open Source; especially focused on manual laborers re-skilling in technology as more and more factories moved out of the area. After the article was published I was invited to lunch by one of the founders, Paul Cooper, where he somewhat surprisingly offered me a job to be a consultant there.

    I took the job and spent two years doing a range of things I had never done: consulting, training, learning new technologies, and more. While nerve-wracking at first, it gave me a taste for jumping in the deep end and figuring things out as I went. What followed were careers at Canonical, XPRIZE, GitHub, and then onto my current consulting business.

  • LibrePlanet 2019 wrap-up: Building the free software utopia

    From the time of free software's inception, with Richard Stallman's announcement of the GNU Project in 1984, community has been a central part of its philosophy: we must be free to choose to share any software we use or create. Stallman wrote, "I consider that the golden rule requires that if I like a program I must share it with other people who like it," and from this point concluded that we must always be permitted to share our discoveries and innovations with others, in order to make their computing and their lives easier and better. Software that is free always has benefits beyond the individual, and the free software movement depends on a vibrant, ever-changing, committed pool of developers, activists, users, and enthusiasts to keep the dream alive and the movement growing.

    Every year, the LibrePlanet conference brings together many members of that movement to celebrate our achievements, strategize how to deal with our setbacks, show off new ideas, and decide what new frontiers we will trailblaze together next. The 2019 conference included many introductions to, and updates from, new and familiar projects, discussions on copyleft and security, and explorations of free software in the business world, but one compelling theme was woven through both days of the conference: how do we maintain and increase the health of our all-important community?

  • How To Install Instructure Canvas LMS For Free

    The Canvas LMS software is Open Source. The AGPLv3 license it is under allows users to collaborate in software hosted on a cloud. Users of AGPLv3 licensed software must make any work based on it public and free. You cannot sell it, but you can sell products or offer services supported by the software. Including online courses, of course. Instructure does not release 100% of Canvas code, so you might not get the exact same experience as in signing on as a customer.

  • I know what EU did last summer: Official use of Microsoft wares to be probed over slurp fears

    The European Union's Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) has announced an investigation into Microsoft products used by EU institutions.

    The probe will build a list of Microsoft wares in use by official bloc bodies and check that the "contractual arrangements" between the two are "fully compliant with data protection rules".

    The move is at least partially in response to a report commissioned by the Dutch government that found that the software giant's Office Pro Plus application suite, which includes the likes of Word and Outlook, was collecting all manner of data and stashing it on US-based servers.

    That got regulators a little hot under the collar since such activities are very much frowned upon under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Users can alter the amount of data slurped by Microsoft's productivity applications (assuming they can find the settings) but not easily turn it off completely.

  • Poddr – podcast client built with Electron and Angular

    I’ve written a few reviews of podcast players including the console based castero, and the graphical CPod. This time, I’m going to examine Poddr, a graphical podcast player that shares similarities with CPod. For example both are web-technologies based using the Electron framework.

    A podcast is a form of digital media consisting of an episodic program downloaded or streamed over the Internet using an XML protocol called RSS. Podcast episodes can be audio radio, video files, PDFs, or ePub files. These episodes can be viewed and listened to on a number of different devices including computers, portable media players, and smartphones.

    The publisher or broadcaster podcasts the program by offering the episodes and the XML document to a web server. Whilst large media corporations are prominent publishers of podcasts, almost anyone can publish them, as often or as infrequent as they wish. Podcasts are a great way of keeping up to date with the latest news, reviews, banter, gossip, to deepen your understanding of the world we live in, and much more.

    Podcasting lets listeners automatically receive the latest episodes of their chosen programmes as soon as they are released. This operation is made very simple by using the appropriate client software. The consumer can subscribe to the podcast and automatically check for and download new episodes, or download episodes of a podcast series individually.

  • Daniel Silverstone: A quarter in review

    I managed to sort things so that Gitano won't drop out of Debian, and I've done a bit more on NetSurf than I did previously, but in the past quarter I've not done a lot on the pub software I mentioned at the start of the year.

    Rob and I have booked off a chunk of April, so perhaps I'll get a chance to do some of that then.

    Sadly, I've also started a bunch of projects, including beginning to plan work with Lars on a Yarn re-design.

    So over-all, this one gets a "C" - satisfactory but could do a lot better.

  • Here’s What Doug Cutting Says Is Hadoop’s Biggest Contribution

    Apache Hadoop isn’t the center of attention in the IT world anymore, and much of the hype has dissipated (or at least regrouped behind AI). But the open source software project still has a place for on-premise workloads, according to Hadoop co-creator Doug Cutting, who says Hadoop will be remembered most of all for a single contribution it made to IT.

    At last week’s Strata Data Conference in San Francisco, Cutting shared some time with Datanami to discuss the open source software project that he’s best known for, the state of distributed systems development right now, and what he sees coming next down the pike.

  • How to keep edge computing open for business –  let the gorillas write the script

    The diversity of devices, protocols, machines: A proprietary edge computing system does not keep up with rapid changes at the edge. An open source approach combines the insight and rapid development of hundreds of committers, moves the orchestration to the cloud and provides agility, performance, and security lacking in embedded software at the edge.

    One aspect of open source is that each project can build on others and not have to do all of the legwork to get a piece of software operation, they can concentrate on their unique approach, ideas, and requirements.

    There is nothing to stop the giants like Amazon, once they detect a viable market, from offering their own distribution and ultimately locking in their proprietary solutions. The question is can open source gather enough momentum to overcome the intrusion? (this needs some explaining)

  • Industry Watch: Crumbs for Cupcake-Native Development

    “Cloud” is a five-letter word meaning “someone else’s computer.” Someone else’s computer, however, is different than your own computers, because of the (somewhat) infinitely large pool of resources, and also because you can use microservices. Or, as I.B. prefers to think of them, crumbs. When you use crumbs, your applications become less like a light, fluffy cupcake and more like a sticky, mushy ball of random things squished together. That sounds rather unpalatable, but trust me, it can be delicious.

  • A Power/Performance Optimization Is On The Way For POWER Linux Users

  • DeaDBeeF 1.8.0 is out

    It's been almost 3 years since the previous release, but the new one is finally here! It was a lot of effort to make it happen.

    Aside from the regular changelog post, I'd like to add that you might have noticed the major version bump. It's not because of any compatibility loss, but simply because we decided that DeaDBeeF is mature enough to stop using version 0. Thanks everyone who have helped to ship this release, either by reporting issues, or by submitting patches! And enjoy the new features!

  • Librem Laptop RAM and Storage Bump, 32GB max RAM

    Technology is constantly improving, and we do get excited whenever we can add those improvements and upgrades to our products — especially when we can do so without raising prices. Recently, we announced a version 4 upgrade for our Librem 13 and Librem 15 laptops; today we are happy to announce we have upgraded the default configuration on both laptops to 8GB RAM and a 250Gb M.2 SATA disk, while keeping the same base price of $1399 and $1599 respectively.

    We know that many of our customers have high RAM requirements, whether that’s due to using a RAM-hungry OS like Qubes or to just having too many chat tabs open in your browser. The single SO-DIMM RAM slot in the Librem 13 and Librem 15 meant an upper limit of 16GB RAM on our laptops… until now. Due to constant advances in RAM density we have been able to validate 32GB SO-DIMMs in our current product line and starting today will offer 32GB RAM as a premium upgrade to both the Librem 13 and Librem 15. If you’ve been holding off on your Librem laptop order because of RAM, wait no longer!

  • Anti-Piracy Outfit MUSO Comes Out Against The Use Of DRM

    When it comes to the record of anti-piracy outfit MUSO, based in the UK, you get a mixed-bag. On the one hand, the organization was caught patting itself on the back for the number of takedowns of infringing content it had achieved, when the number it was touting was made up in some sizable percentage of the number of takedown requests it had issued. The focus at all on takedowns as a method for combating piracy, rather than the development of better business models that take advantage of the internet, is itself a problem. On the other hand, MUSO has also been willing to tell content publishers that piracy is by and large their fault, with a lack of convenient legal alternatives being the biggest barrier to ending copyright infringement. So, a little bad, a little good.

    Well, we can add another item to the good column, as MUSO recently came out on its own site with a piece that essentially argues that DRM should be abandoned completely. And, while the alternative on offer in the post is more takedown efforts, MUSO is at least trying to frame this as an argument for better treatment of consumers.

  • The Debian project leader election

    While a few weeks back it looked like there might be a complete lack of Debian project leader (DPL) candidates, that situation has changed. After a one-week delay, five Debian developers have nominated themselves. We are now about halfway through the campaign phase; platforms have been posted and questions have been asked and answered. It seems a good time to have a look at the candidates and their positions.

    The five candidates are Joerg Jaspert, Jonathan Carter, Sam Hartman, Martin Michlmayr, and Simon Richter. Platforms for four of the candidates can be found here along with their rebuttals to the other platforms. Simon Richter has not provided a platform or participated in the debian-vote mailing list since his nomination mail on March 17. It is not clear what that means and there was no response to an email query about his plans. The other four candidates provided detailed platforms that outlined their experience in the Debian project and their vision for its future.

  • ClearlyDefined Update [Ed: OSI Web site now composed by Microsoft staff, salaried by Microsoft. Not good. In Microsoft-composed blog posts OSI now links to Microsoft GiHhub and a project Microsoft is connected to. Had OSI not received money from Microsoft, maybe it would not happen.]

    Having clear license data about open source increases everyone’s confidence. Projects want more adoption of their software, and this is built on confidence in knowing how to use it responsibly. Users of open source projects want to feel confident they know how a project is licensed to properly comply with the terms of that license. Organizations and companies building on open source want to feel confident they understand the compliance obligations of all the open source they use.

    Enter ClearlyDefined. ClearlyDefined is focused on clarifying data about open source components. Specifically, the initial focus is on three key pieces of data about open source: license, source location, and attribution parties. Clarity on these pieces of data helps everyone know what their obligations are and feel more confident in meeting them.

    We have spent the last year as an OSI project building the software to facilitate the project as well as the community around the project.

To sign off a package you need to login into Arch Linux's website and go to the sign off page to sign off a package. Haavard created a tool to be able to sign off packages from the command line which makes it easier to sign off by doing it interatively.

  • RISC-V Foundation Announces Agenda for Free, Half-Day Getting Started with RISC-V Events
  • A Weather Station Fit For A PDP-11

    The Digital Equipment Corp. PDP-11/70 is a masterpiece of Cold War-era industrial design. This microcomputer was the size of one or two modern server racks depending on configuration, and the front panel, loaded up with blinkenlights, was clad in a beautiful rose and magenta color scheme. The switches — the ones you used to toggle bits in memory — were actually custom designed covers made to match the shape of the completely unnecessary bezel. The aesthetic of the 11/70 is the intersection of baroque and modernism on the design Venn diagram.

    [Oscar Vermeulen] built a miniature version of the PDP-11/70 that houses a Raspberry Pi, and [rricharz] has been hard at work bringing an original copy of BSD to this system. The first great project to come out of this effort? It’s a weather station, and it’s exactly as cool as you think it is.
