CoreOS offers private Docker container registries for world+dog
Container-loving Linux vendor CoreOS has made its on-premises Docker container registry software available as a standalone product.
Previously, CoreOS Enterprise Registry was only available as part of the company's Premium Managed Linux offering, which it describes as "OS as a service."
As of Thursday, it is now available for use with any Docker-enabled OS – and these days, what Linux distro hasn't gone gaga for Docker? Even Microsoft is getting into the act.
Manjaro Works To Make Calamares A Distribution-Independent Installer
The Arch-based Manjaro crew has been developing Calamares, an open-source installation framework they hope will basically lead to being a universal Linux distribution installer.
The Manjaro camp has been developing Calamares as a distribution installer framework they'll be using for Manjaro 0.9+ and they also hope other Linux distributions will adopt it so it can become somewhat of a universal Linux installer so each distribution camp no longer keeps needing to write their own installer.
Has The Sky Fallen? Qualcomm Contributes To Freedreno's DRM/KMS Driver
In an interesting change of events, Code Aurora on the behalf of the Qualcomm Innovation Center has added Adreno A4xx product support to the Freedreno-spawned DRM/KMS "MSM" driver.
Rob Clark started the Freedreno project over two years ago as a reverse-engineered project around Qualcomm's Adreno hardware. At the time Rob was working for Texas Instruments but now is employed by Red Hat. The Freedreno driver has largely been developed just by Rob with contributions by a few others, but without any official support from Qualcomm. Freedreno is to Adreno hardware as Nouveau is to NVIDIA hardware. Like Nouveau, Rob developed Freedreno code through clean-room reverse engineering.
