The openSUSE GNOME Team is proud to present you the GNOME 3.8 for openSUSE 12.3 – Repository. You have eagerly been waiting for it, maybe you even dared to install the test repositories published during the last few days… if you happen to be amongst the ones that reported issues with it, then ALL THANKS go to you!
"All in all, antivirus software for Linux aren’t totally useless, so for those who like to be on the safest side of things, or are just a tiny bit paranoid about security, or wish to make sure your servers are malware free, here’s an overview of those you can get completely free. I’ve tested them all myself, and discarded those which failed to install or otherwise don’t appear to be working."
Roberto Rosario turned his GPL'd Mayan EDMS into a lucrative business. Who can he thank for his recent success? The developers who tried to steal his code.
It is official now: Grimlands the mix of Shooter and MMORPG with an open, post-apocalyptic world will also be available for Linux and Mac OS X!
The Raspberry Pi makes a great home server. But it also makes a solid hardware development platform for makers if your needs go a bit beyond the capabilities of the Arduino, and you don’t need something quite as capable as the BeagleBone, or another ARM-based board designed specifically for talking to hardware.
Oceans of digital data are being created from the interaction between individuals, businesses, and government agencies. There are enormous benefits open to organisations providing they effectively identify, access, filter, analyze and select parts of this data.
OSADL describes SIL2LinuxMP as “the first community-based Linux certification project of its kind.” The group’s strategy is to certify the “base components” of an embedded Linux RTOS (real-time operating system) running on commercially available board-level computers having single- or multi-core processors. “Base components” refers to the system’s Linux kernel, bootloader, root filesystem, and C library bindings for kernel access; “user space” applications are not included within the project’s scope, other than a limited set of system utilities, such as for system inspection, file management, and self-diagnostics,
Networking giant Cisco Systems is no stranger to the world of open source software. In 2009, Cisco was identified as one of the top contributors to the Linux kernel and its core IOS XE operating is based on Linux as well.
As a system administrator, Linux security technician or system auditor, your responsibility can involve any combination of these: software patch management, malware scanning, file integrity checks, security audit, configuration error checking, etc. If there is an automatic vulnerability scanning tool, it can save you a lot of time checking up on common security issues. One such vulnerability scanner on Linux is lynis. This tool is actually supported on multiple platforms including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Mac OS and Ubuntu.
Our latest benchmarks at Phoronix of the Linux 3.9 kernel are looking at the performance of the Intel DRM driver when handling an Intel Core i7 "Ivy Bridge" processor with HD 4000 graphics. The Intel OpenGL Linux graphics performance with this forthcoming kernel was compared to the earlier Linux 3.8, 3.7, 3.6, and 3.5 kernel releases.
We're delighted to announce that KDE has been accepted as a mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code 2013 (GSoC), for the ninth consecutive year. GSoC has been valuable in bringing new developers into the KDE Community and other free and open software projects. And it has been successful at achieving the goal of creating quality code for the use and benefit of all.
Developer Break – catch up on the smaller but important notes for developers, from libraries to APIs and from people to postings. In this edition: Go, PHP, jQuery, CouchDB, Metasploit, PhoneGap, TIOBE, OASIS, App Engine, Amazon Web Services and Intel's latest SDK.
Forget Sputnik then, at least for the moment. It turns out that Dell's main effort has been to deliver a premium Linux notebook on which all the hardware works out of the box. "We went above and beyond with the hardware enablement we did with this," said Limonciello. "We got the touchpad to be full multi-touch, we went and got drivers from all the vendors we deal with in the laptop. It should really be a first-class experience."Is it a first-class experience?

Imagine the kind of havoc a malicious hacker could cause if he or she were able to take over an airplane simply using his Android phone. With a tap of his or her fingers, the hacker could arbitrarily control the plane remotely and redirect its path. If you think this is only something that could happen in a Hollywood movie, think again, because that's exactly the scenario a German security researcher laid out on Wednesday at a conference in Amsterdam.
