Subject: Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox (Ubuntu 12.04)

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox on headless servers. This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox on an Ubuntu 12.04 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.

Subject: 4 Fine Linux ARM Distros

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The ARM platform is exploding like a mad wet cat out of the bath. Here are four good distros cram-full of ARM fun. Linux has had ARM support since forever, but it's been bumpy. There are hundreds of vendors of ARM devices (see Tiny Pluggable Linux ARM Computers Are Red-Hot for a sampling), all shoving their own personal hacked code out the door as fast as possible. This made Linux support complicated and unwieldy, to the point that Linus Torvalds threatened to stop accepting ARM changes in the mainline Linux kernel.

Subject: Android is Not a Single OS

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

"If a particular manufacturer’s version of Android is this different from stock Android then it’s effectively a fork, a different operating system. In that case it seems like we would be better served to call it as such. Instead of talking about everyone running Android, implying it is the same thing on all these devices, it might be better to talk about Samsung Android running on Samsung devices, HTC Android running on HTC devices, and so on."

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Augmented reality artist/developer, Nathan Shafer, has plans to illustrate the history of Exit Glacier in Seward, Alaska via 3D modeling using popular open source modeling software, Blender. The finished result will allow young scientists, school children, and other visitors to use mobile devices equipped with Shafer’s app to view reconstructions of the 5 former termini that were present before the significant, visible shrinkage that illustrates the larger issue of glacial recession.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

An international botnet could be using infected Android handsets to send out massive amounts of spam, said Microsoft antispam engineer Terry Zink. He reportedly identified the botnet and its Google Android connection by examining the headers of spam that included the signature "Sent from Yahoo! Mail on Android."

Since last year when spotting a major Linux kernel power regression and subsequently finding the cause of the power problem that affected a large number of mobile Linux users, plus other regressions, it's been fun to look at the Linux power performance situation. How though is the latest Ubuntu Linux code performing when it comes to power efficiency? Here are some early tests of Ubuntu 12.10.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Whether or not you are going on a vacation this summer, it is always good to take a break. And if you are using Linux, what is better than playing video games under the sun? (Except going out, of course.) So, in continuation with Travis’ work, let me present you five more games to distract yourself during the summer. From action to reflection, and through racing, these games are assured to bring you the fun that you deserve. And to add to the cocktail, all of them are completely free!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Since I want to get this out of my system: here's a set of proposals to fix (okay, replace) the current failing patent system. No lengthy diatribe or introduction, just a raw list. Let me begin by saying that I, by no means, am claiming this set of proposals is perfect, watertight, coherent, legally feasible, or workable. It's just a number of of things that I, as a layman, think will benefit society and progress.

Subject: Red Hat & Ubuntu's UEFI Solutions Not Good For FOSS

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The FOSS community is understandably upset with both Red Hat and Ubuntu for their planned ways of implementing UEFI Secure Boot. Indeed, both companies plans are unacceptable for a variety of reasons. Free software isn’t free if it requires permission from an outside source before it can be loaded onto a new or used computer. This is true even if the permission comes from a well-meaning bureaucratic regulatory agency. It’s doubly true if that permission must come from a self-serving monopoly with an anti-FOSS history, like Microsoft.
