Linux 5.5-rc2

  • Linux 5.5-rc2
    You all know the deal by now: another week, another rc.
    
    Things look normal - rc2 is usually fairly calm, and so it was this
    week too. All the stats look normal too - the bulk of this is drivers
    (gpu, rdma, networking, scsi, usb stand out, but there's noise
    elsewhere too), with the rest being random things all over - io_uring,
    filesystems (ceph, overlayfs), core networking, arch updates, header
    files, etc etc.
    
    So peeps - go build it, install it and boot it, and report back any
    problems you see,

ArcMenu 38 Adds KRunner Inspired Layout + More

ArcMenu 38 touts a couple of really interesting changes, including a crop of new app menu layouts inspired by other operating systems and desktop environments. Now, if you checked out the previous release of ArcMenu back in October then you’ll be more than familiar with the configurable set of app menu layouts it introduced. But if you’re not? It’s something that makes the extensions really worth checking out, particularly if you’re into desktop customisation and theming. ArcMenu is a free, open source software designed for the GNOME Shell desktop environment. The latest version of the add-on is available to install from the GNOME Extensions website (below) on GNOME Shell 3.28 and above. Read more

All the world's top 500 supercomputers run Linux

All of the world's 500 fastest supercomputers use Linux, and the aggregate processing capacity of the top 500 has now grown to 1.65 exaflops. The 54th edition of the TOP500 supercomputing list shows that the entry level to the list has also grown to 1.14 petaflops, up from 1.02 petaflops from the previous list released in June. The top 10 systems remain unchanged from the previous list, with IBM-built Summit and Sierra remaining in first and second place with speeds of 148.6 petaflops and 94.6 petaflops respectively. Both employ Power9 CPUs and NVIDIA Telsa V100 GPUs. Read more

Rough, tough in-vehicle computer offers PoE and battery backup

The system provides a 9-48V DC power input with automatic recovery short circuit power protection and vehicle power ignition support for a variety of vehicles. There’s also an optional 10-minute backup battery. The 250 x 155 x 55mm computer weighs 1.98 Kg and has wall and VESA mounting. The VBOX-3611-IP65 runs Ubuntu 16.04 or Windows 10 on Intel’s dual-core, 15W TDP 6th Gen U-series processors up to a Core i7-6600U clocked at 2.6GHz (3.4GHz turbo). The system supports up to 32GB DDR4-2133 and has a 2.5-inch SATA bay and an M.2 M-key 2280/2242 slot for SSDs. The product page mentions dual SIM card slots and optional LTE, WLAN, GPS, and Bluetooth, and the front panel image shows four antenna connectors, so there must some be some PCIe/USB enabled M.2 or mini-PCIe slots lurking about.
