How does this affect the Fedora Docker containers? Here is a great article on understanding how Shellshock works. As far as how it affects Fedora Docker containers, there are two sets of images that we need to be aware of. The first is the Fedora base image. The Fedora base image comes with bash because it is pulling in the @core package group as part of the image build process. We can check this out by pulling down the Fedora base image and having a look inside.
Since sometime last week the popular Linux site Tux Machines has been under an apparent distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack. For the last several days, those trying to visit the site have been redirected to Tech Rights, another site operated by Roy Schestowitz, the owner of Tux Machines to a post dated Saturday by Schestowitz...
Calao Systems unveiled a Linux-ready, industrial “PinBall” SBC based on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, plus special M2M and home-automation models. Grenoble, France based Calao Systems plans to ship the PinBall single board computer in the fourth quarter starting at about 325 euros ($413) in single units. The open-spec SBC is available in a “Core access” model, as well as in an Industrial Automation and Robotics (IAaR) model aimed at M2M applications, and a Home and Building Automation (HaBA) model with KNX support. All the systems are based on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, and ship with an RPi-compatible open source Linux BSP.
It took longer than we ever hoped, but Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is finally in opt-in beta for Linux. Time to re-live a classic natively on Linux.

I came back from OSCON this year with a new fire to contribute to an open source project. I’ve been involved in open source for years, but lately I[he]#039[/he]ve been more of an enthusiast-evangelist than a hands-on-contributor to an open source community. So, I started some thinking about what to do next. When I was involved in projects before, it was due to a clear progression from user to forum guru to contributor. It’s a great path to take but what do you do if you just want to jump into something?
OpenDaylight's second release, Helium, brings more user-friendliness and better OpenStack integration to the open source SDN and NFV platform. Open source software-defined networking (SDN) and network-functions virtualization (NFV) are ready for enterprises to start building the networking and cloud computing infrastructure of the future. So says the OpenDaylight Project, which released the second major version of its platform today.
The Fedora 21 Alpha release has arrived, with a preview of the latest free and open source technology under development. As part of the Fedora.next initiative, Fedora 21 will boast three products: Cloud, Server and Workstation. Note that for the alpha release, the network installers act as generic, 'universal' installers, offering the entire set of Fedora package groups by default, rather than only the groups associated with the product they are meant to represent. Each of the products will build on the 'base' set of packages for Fedora.
Open source is playing an ever-expanding role in education at all levels. One school board that’s embraced open source is the Penn Manor School District in Pennsylvania. The District has rolled out the largest open source student laptop program in the state, with 3,500 Linux-powered computers distributed to students.
NoSQL, object storage and Hadoop have ushered in a brave new world of storage technologies and applications for the cloud and Big Data. But Oracle (ORCL) thinks the future remains bright for MySQL databases, too, and has unveiled new technologies to make the traditional storage platform easier to administer and deploy.
Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) will be launched soon and the developers are very close to finishing the work for it, but users have to be prepared for what the media will probably call "a boring release."
The Ubuntu GNOME makers have been encouraged by an important Ubuntu developer to implement the latest build of the GNOME desktop environment in the future versions of their distro.
It was 1995, and I had received an email from my brother James asking if I’d ever heard of Linux. I had, but barely. A high school student at my alma mater had built a web server with Linux. Eventually, out of curiosity, I purchased a copy of Red Hat 6.0 (which pre-dates Red Hat Enterprise Linux or RHEL) and got it running with GNOME on a Hewlett-Packard Vectra 75, which had a Cyrix processor upgrade installed. RHEL 6.0 had a Mozilla browser, OpenOffice 1.0, and some other software I’d never heard of.read more
A RAID 10 (aka RAID 1+0 or stripe of mirrors) array provides high performance and fault-tolerant disk I/O operations by combining features of RAID 0 (where read/write operations are performed in parallel across multiple drives) and RAID 1 (where data is written identically to two or more drives). In this tutorial, I'll show you how […]Continue reading...The post How to set up RAID 10 for high performance and fault tolerant disk I/O on Linux appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:How to create a software RAID-1 array with mdadm on Linux How to set up a Samba file server to use with Windows clients What are useful CLI tools for Linux system admins How to configure Access Control Lists (ACLs) on Linux How to manage LVM volumes on CentOS / RHEL 7 with System Storage Manager
The good news about all this is that it demonstrates how quickly the Linux community can get the word out and then rally to engineer a solution when a security problem is discovered. The bad news is that not all Linux users listen. Too many users believe that the security features that are baked into Linux offer complete protection, no matter what. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. It never was, nor can it ever be.

It’s very rare that the CEO of a technology outfit that’s based in the West takes an open stance on hot-button geopolitical issues. It’s even rarer that that position is (somewhat) counter to generally held opinion in the West.
