Photo editing software is often used by professional photographers as well as amateur shooters to add various enhancements to pictures taken with a camera. This post covers ten popular photo editing software tools available on Linux.
The Meld developers were happy to announce last evening, September 1, the immediate availability for download of version 1.7.5 of the Meld software, a visual diff and merge utility targeted at developers.
When you strace -f a collection of processes you end up with pretty frustrating output that looks like this. It’s almost impossible to keep track without pen and paper and plenty of time.The half-baked idea is a visualization tool that takes the log file and constructs a picture — changing over time — of what processes are related to what other processes, what binaries they correspond to, what sockets are connected to each process (and connected between processes), what each program wrote to stderr, and so on.
Back in January, we launched our translation pilot for Open.Michigan, focusing on two video series for health education. We are thrilled to report that the translation activities are still going strong—57 volunteers to date, 53 videos that include 128 completed translations covering 11 languages, and expansion into our family medicine video series. We are amazed at the skill and dedication of our volunteer translators.
Today, September 1, 2013, the Arch Linux developers were happy to launch the monthly ISO image of their popular and powerful operating system, Arch Linux 2013.09.01, which is now available for download on mirrors worldwide (see download link at the end of the article).

On Linux, there are several rootkit scanner tools that help project against known or potential rootkits. One such rootkit detection tool is called Rootkit Hunter (rkhunter). This tutorial describes how to scan a Linux system for rootkits by using rkhunter.
A full review of the game Hot Tin Roof with screenshots, a game that will support Linux
While most devices of the 3 major x86 desktop GPU-providers have GPU and display-controllers merged on a single card, recent development (especially on ARM) shows that rendering (via GPU) and mode-setting (via display-controller) are not necessarily bound to the same device. To better support such devices, several changes are being worked on for DRM.
Twenty-two years ago Linux was born as a "(free) operating system" that founder Linus Torvalds was quick to downplay as "just a hobby" that wouldn't "be big and professional." My, but how times have changed. So much so that Linux now dominates mobile (Android), servers and cloud. No wonder that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer derided Linux in 2001 as a "cancer" that "attaches itself... to everything it touches." He was right. At least, as it relates to Linux's effect on Microsoft.
Linux, the free operating system that Linus Torvalds created as a "hobby," turned 22 this week. From its humble beginnings, Linux now dominates on servers and supercomputers, and it's the basis for the Android OS proliferating on smartphones and tablets.
We've had the Gazelle Pro at Phoronix the past few days and have been running a plethora of Linux benchmarks on the high-end Haswell system with Core i7 4900MQ CPU, Intel SSD, and beautiful 1920 x 1080 display. As one of the final tests before having to return the review sample, I was curious how the Gazelle Pro compared to the Serval Pro -- the Ubuntu-friendly hardware vendor's laptop from two years ago when Intel "Sandy Bridge" CPUs were the latest and greatest.
Regular readers of tech news sites are used to hearing about patent trolls. Soon, though, you might start hearing about them in surprising places: like on the drive home from work. The Internet Association has teamed up with the biggest trade groups representing restaurants, supermarkets, and retailers to launch a new ad campaign in print and radio outlets. The new campaign isn't tech-centric at all, and it emphasizes how trolls hurt "Main Street"-type businesses.
One of the unique benefits of the Coreboot open-source BIOS/firmware project is that it can support loading the Linux kernel directly after initializing the motherboard -- instead of using GRUB2/SeaBIOS, the Linux kernel can be included on the ROM chip. This isn't a new feature to Coreboot, but with a Git commit made today it's now easier to configure.
