Linux kernel 3.12; all packages upgraded from Debian's testing repositories as of 2014-01-29; Xfce 4.10; the same set of tools and applications which can be found in all SparkyLinux spins; added a boot-repair tool; added Plymouth with a Sparky theme; the uGet download manager has been upgraded from Debian's 'Sid' repository, it uses aria2 for downloading files as default.
Surfing Internet & SSH connectoin on (to) cloud instance of Fedora 20 or Ubuntu 13.10 via Neutron GRE
When you meet the first time with GRE tunnelling you have to understand that GRE encapsulation requires 24 bytes and a lot of problems raise up , view http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk827/tk369/technologies_tech_note09186a0080093f1f.shtml In particular, Two Node (Controller+Compute) RDO Havana cluster on Fedora 20 hosts been built by myself per guidelines from http://kashyapc.wordpress.com/2013/11/23/neutron-configs-for-a-two-node-openstack-havana-setup-on-fedora-20/ was Neutron GRE cluster. Hence, for any instance has been setup (Fedora or Ubuntu) problem with network communication raises up immediately. Apt-get update just refuse to work on Ubuntu Salamander Server instance (default MTU value for Ethernet interface is 1500).
Major new features: updates to RPM 4.11 and urpmi, which has been given a thorough Mageia turnout and cleanup; Linux kernel 3.12 and systemd 208; GRUB is the default bootloader, GRUB 2 is available for testing; revamped package groupings for installation and rpmdrake; KDE 4.11, GNOME 3.10 and Xfce 4.10 desktops; LibreOffice 4.1.3; experimental UEFI support; FullHD+ resolution support.
I’m writing the following article from the perspective of a normal user that uses Linux (Arch Linux at the moment) exclusively, both at home and work, for over 12 hours daily, with GNOME 3 as the main desktop environment. A users with over ten years experience in open source desktops, years during which I’ve tested any known desktop environment/window manager.
On 28 February is when the E19 feature freeze is happening. Blumenkrantz says, "there is currently no set date or estimated date for E19. My only goal with regard to time is to release before July 2023, though I may be forced to delay until September 2026 depending on celestial alignments." In reality though, E19 will probably be released before the end of the calendar year -- just as E17 and E18 have seen December debuts the past two years.

DFI tipped its BT160 and BT161 Mini-ITX motherboards back in October with the launch of the Intel Atom E3800 (Bay Trail-I) system-on-chips. At the time, the company also promised seven other Atom E3800 based modules and SBCs, including three other Mini-ITX boards. These BT100, BT101, and BT103 Mini-ITX boards have yet to appear, and they lack the DFI ECX expansion interfaces found on the BT160 and BT161.
There was a time in my life when I heard great things about Maxthon (formerly known as MyIE2), back when it was based on the Internet Explorer web browser from Microsoft and only available for the Windows operating system. I never had the pleasure to work with it until today, when I’ve installed the new development version under my Arch Linux box.
Major differences from Scientific Linux 6.4: OpenAFS has been updated to version 184.108.40.206 from openafs.org - this package may have some issues, please note there is a possibility for system panic under certain conditions; alpine 2.10 - updated to more recent version (from Fedora); yum-autoupdate-2 6.3 - bug fixes for extra, useless reporting, remove the obsolete augeas lense.
Microsoft And IBM: If Patent Office Can Do A Quick Review Of Our Crappy Patents, You'll All Die In A Car Crash
Last fall, we wrote about how the BSA, the Business Software Alliance, famous for being basically a Microsoft-front organization whose main job is to publish absolutely, hilariously misleading "piracy" numbers each year, had been taking on the issue of the so called "covered business method (CBM) patent" program that was being pushed in patent reform. The covered business method patent program is pretty straightforward. It allows certain types of patents -- currently financial patents -- to undergo a faster review, allowing the USPTO to dump bad patents faster.
Lubuntu eXtra Life Extension, aka LXLE, is based on Lubuntu, a version of Ubuntu running LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment). Trust me on this, you will not recognize many Ubuntu traces topside. If you have yet to experience the LXDE desktop, prepare yourself for a wonderfully smooth computing experience.
The SparkyLinux development team has announced earlier today, the immediate availability for download of a new edition of their popular Linux operating system, this time based on the lightweight Xfce desktop environment.
Last year, Bangalore-based iWave Systems Technologies announced two Linux-ready computer-on-modules (COMs) that offer embedded building blocks for two interesting system-on-chips that combine ARM cores with other types of processors. Now the company is extending these COMs with a pair of Linux-friendly development boards.
Why makes Open Data Day work? Mostly you. It is a global excuse for people in communities like yours to come together and organize an event that meets their needs. Whether that is a hackathon, a showcase and fair, lectures, workshops for local NGOs and businesses, training on data, or meetings with local politicians—people are free to organize around whatever they think their community needs. You can read more about how Open Data Day works on our website.
The United Kingdom is taking the first steps toward saying goodbye to Microsoft Office and hello to a more open alternative, after it was announced that over £200 million of taxpayers' money had been spent just on licensing since 2010.
Unigine Corp has shared that their flagship advanced 3D engine, which originally was targeted for games but is now seeing greater use within simulators and professional 3D visualization areas, is forking into Unigine Sim and Unigine Game.
CLAs aren't new. FSF-copyrighted projects have been using copyright assignment since at least 1985 - in return, the FSF promise that the software will always be distributed under a copyleft-style license. For over a decade, Apache Software Foundation projects have required that contributors sign a CLA that allows them to retain copyright, but grants the ASF the right to relicense the work as it wishes. For the most part, this hasn't been terribly controversial.
Opinions vary on whether the UEFI standards are helping or hurting the migration to Linux. Enterprise users can select a Linux distro certified to work with UEFI standards, but not all Linux distros have keys that allow it to install. Despite the intent of the UEFI standards, the process so far is not universally successful. It should "just work," said the Linux Foundation's Greg Kroah-Hartman.
