'Broken by design: systemd' is itself kind of broken  View Printable Version 
Saturday, February 15 2014 @ 01:27 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsRecently, an article by Rich Felker called Broken by design: systemd has been making the rounds. While I am sympathetic with complaints about systemd, the problem is that this article is both more or less deliberately misleading and factually wrong in various of its sections. Normally I would pass over this (per the lesson of the famous xkcd strip), but not today for various reasons. I'll be quoting from the article to comment on specific issues I have with it.

Linux Blackberry OS 10 Cordova plugin development setup  View Printable Version 
Thursday, January 02 2014 @ 10:26 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThis semester I’m contributing towards HTML5 on BB10 with thanks to UCOSP and my team’s mentor Tim Windsor from Blackberry. We’re implementing and porting cordova (phonegap) plugins.

Setting up my development environment under linux (Ubuntu 13.04) took the full first day of our face-to-face sprint. I am thankful Tim was sitting across the table and was willing to answer my many questions.

For this tutorial I am going to assume you are on Ubuntu 13.04 but other linux distros should be the a similar process.

General NewsOne of most widely respected repositories of embedded and mobile Linux news and information has returned to the web as an archive hosted here at LinuxGizmos.com.

QuinStreet acquired LinuxDevices.com in Feb. 2012 through its purchase of a group of websites from publisher Ziff Davis Enterprise. After the acquisition, LinuxDevices remained frozen in time for about a year before vanishing in May

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsA week ago we announced that we were trying to start a new Linux magazine that will make all of its contents available for free after a maximum nine months. The response so far has been phenomenal, and funds have come in far quicker than we expected.

Are We Witnessing the Decline of Ubuntu?  View Printable Version 
Monday, October 07 2013 @ 10:44 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsHistory is written years after the events it describes. But when the history of free software finally is written, I am increasingly convinced that this last year will be noted as the start of the decline of Ubuntu.

At first, the idea might seem ridiculous or spiteful. You can still find Ubuntu enthusiasts who exclaim over every move the distribution makes, and journalists still report founder Mark Shuttleworth's every word uncritically.

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsToday we announce OpenZFS: the truly open source successor to the ZFS project.

ZFS is the world's most advanced filesystem, in active development for over a decade. Recent development has continued in the open, and OpenZFS is the new formal name for this open community of developers, users, and companies improving, using, and building on ZFS. Founded by members of the Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and illumos communities, including Matt Ahrens, one of the two original authors of ZFS, the OpenZFS community brings together over a hundred software developers from these platforms.

Google Drive for Linux?  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 09 2013 @ 10:44 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFor some reason, Google seems to dislike Google Drive users who prefer Linux. I find this particularly strange, since Google's Chrome OS is based on Linux. Thankfully, the folks over at Insync not only provide Linux support for Google Drive syncing, they do it with style.

Daala - new general-purpose video codec  View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 20 2013 @ 07:31 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThe next-generation VP9 and HEVC codecs are the latest incremental refinements of a basic codec design that dates back 25 years to h.261. This conservative, linear development strategy evolving a proven design has yielded reliable improvement with relatively low risk, but the law of diminishing returns is setting in. Recent performance increases are coming at exponentially increasing computational cost.

Daala tries for a larger leap forward— by first leaping sideways— to a new codec design and numerous novel coding techniques. In addition to the technical freedom of starting fresh, this new design consciously avoids most of the patent thicket surrounding mainstream block-DCT-based codecs. At its very core, for example, Daala is based on lapped transforms, not the traditional DCT.

Nvidia's 3D Tegra driver now open sourced  View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 07 2013 @ 09:24 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsSeems after getting the middle finger from Linus Torvalds for its hardware support and lack of open-source drivers, Nvidia has started to care more about the Linux users. Most recently, the GPU manufacturer has open-sourced its 3D Tegra driver code.
