In today's open source roundup: Will we see a MATE version of Ubuntu? Plus: Linux versus Windows and consoles in gaming, and Firefox 30 released.
Automatically updating Android apps could get riskier thanks to a change Google developers have made to the way the OS discloses new app permissions, such as the ability to send potentially costly text messages or track a user's precise geographic location.
Many Internet Relay Chat (IRC) clients in Fedora (xchat, hexchat, irssi) only support the IRC protocol, however many users also converse in other Instant Messaging (IM) protocols like Google Talk. One option to have all your IMs and Chats in one application is to switch to a client that supports both IRC and IM, such as pidgin or empathy. However, there is another option that does not require you to switch IRC clients — bitlbee.
Mozilla said that Spreadtrum’s $25 Firefox OS phone will soon be carried by Intex and Spice in India, and it also signed up Taiwan-based Chunghwa Telecom. It seems only fitting that the country that brought us the $25 tablet should also be the first to try out the $25 smartphone. While Datawind’s Android-based Aakash 2 (UbiSlate) actually sold for $38, Indian government subsidization dropped that closer to $25 for schoolchildren. It remains to be seen whether Spreadtrum will enjoy similar discounts from Indian carriers Intex and Spice to keep its budget Firefox OS phone at the promised $25. Perhaps tellingly, there was no $25 price mentioned in Mozilla’s latest announcement.
The scientific journal, Nature Methods, has made a transformation. From closed to open, the journal now embraces open science practices with the purpose of enabling true reproducible research. This is an account of how this transformation came to be.
When I wrote about Usenet and Sickbeard a while back, I got many e-mailsthat I had broken the first rule of Usenet: don't talk about Usenet. I'm asucker for freedom though, and I can't help but share when cool programsare available. This month, I switched from Sickbeard to NZBDrone formanaging my television shows.
On behalf of the Manjaro team, I'm pleased to announce the release of Manjaro Linux 0.8.10. Our team has worked hard over the last three months to put together the most refined and user-friendly Manjaro release to date. This release includes our flagship Xfce edition, feature-rich KDE edition, lightweight Openbox edition and our minimal 'Net' edition. Although the general layout of our supported environments has not changed dramatically, there have been look-and-feel improvements, including a modern graphical bootsplash, new default theme (Menda) and a new look for our welcome screen.

Diskless booting implies that a client computer does not have any disk storage when booting an operating system. In that case, the computer can load the kernel as well as the root filesystem from a remote NFS server over network. It may use several different methods to load the kernel and the root filesystem from […]Continue reading...The post How to diskless boot a Linux machine appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:How to find the IP address of VMware virtual machine How to change the boot order of guest VM on VMware Player How to disable SELinux How to set up a DHCP server using dnsmasq How to set up DHCP and NAT on Vyatta router
References and citations are what make the scientific and academic worlds go round. Everyone has their own system for keeping track of their research, from dumping everything onto a desk, to dumping everything into a folder (I like to call this the Pensky Method), to dumping everything into folders on a computer.
I've been following the Designate project, which provide OpenStack DesignateDNS-as-a-Service for OpenStack for some time. It's a project that seems painfully obvious to me, enabling DNS features within an OpenStack cloud deployment.
