Linux Lexicon: Getting Started With Linux
Be it the smallest Android smartphone or the biggest of servers, Linux has become the very foundation of our digital lives, something Linus Torvalds could have hardly fathomed.
Sabayon ARM 16.06 Linux Gets Kodi-Based Media Center Edition for Raspberry Pi 3
Today, May 29, 2016, Sabayon ARM developer Ettore Di Giacinto announced the release of Sabayon ARM 16.06 Media Center Edition for Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 2 SBCs.
We were expecting to see today the release of Sabayon 16.06 for computers, which is the monthly update to the Gentoo-based GNU/Linux operating system for July 2016, because the Sabayon people are always announcing a new monthly release on the 29th of each month, but this time, things were a bit different.
Linux 4.7 RC1
It's Sunday, and it has been two weeks since the release of the Linux 4.6 kernel, so the time has come for Linus Torvalds to introduce us to the development cycle of the next major kernel branch.
The morning release is partly because I don't have anything I know of pending (and if there was somebody who was planning on sending their last-minute changes five minutes before the usual afternoon release, I really can't be bothered to care). And partly because I think it's been a fine merge window, and we have plenty of new code to close it with.
The first test release of Linux 4.7 is now available. This new kernel version comes with plenty of new features and functionality.
