Subject: Willow Garage Marries Open Source and Robots, with an Eye Toward the Future

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

For years now, in the field of robotics, open source platforms have been ushering in all kinds of innovation. And among the commercial companies focused on open source robotics, none is as prominent as Silicon Valley-based Willow Garage. Scott Hassan, a Google veteran, founded Willow Garage in 2006 as a well-funded robotics research shop. In addition to building innovative robots and robotics platforms, Willow Garage helped organize the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF).

Subject: How To Play Your Old DOS Games In Linux

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

Old stuff rock again! The Hipster community is growing, Amiga is proposing a new computer (running Linux), vintage cars are trendy, etc. To follow the stream, nothing can beat the emulation of old games. Take a break from the most recent FPS and go back to the origin. What made video games what they are today? Story, game play, graphics, soundtrack? The best way to remember is to play again. And why not start with DOS games?

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

The time has come to refresh our security tool arsenal - BackTrack 5 R3 has been released. R3 focuses on bug fixes as well as the addition of over 60 new tools – several of which were released in BlackHat and Defcon 2012. A whole new tool category was populated - 'Physical Exploitation', which now includes tools such as the Arduino IDE and libraries, as well as the Kautilya Teensy payload collection. Together with our usual KDE and GNOME, 32/64-bit ISO images, we have released a single VMware Image (GNOME, 32-bit).

Subject: A Quick Overview of Hadoop

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

Building web scale applications means building systems that can survive any number of horrible things happening to your hardware or software. It means eliminating single points of failure, it means scaling horizontally, as well as vertically, and it means being able to respond to influxes of traffic without buckling under the weight. Increasingly, building web scale applications also means handling terabytes, or even petabytes of data; this is where the Apache Hadoop project comes in.

Subject: Canonical: Making the Open Cloud Seamless for Users

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

Cloud computing has made great strides over the past two years as more companies enter the market and open source projects emerge. But the industry is still young and the current model in which each vendor has its own solution is creating “layers from hell” for the end user, says Kyle MacDonald, vice president of cloud at Canonical.

In recent months there has been an initiative underway called Rootbeer, which is a GPU compiler for Java code. Rootbeer claims to be more advanced than CUDA or OpenCL bindings for Java as it does static code analysis of the Java Bytecode and takes it automatically to the GPU.

Subject: Canonical Showcases Desktop Linux, Inside the Browser

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

In most cases, “online tours” fall short of seeing the real thing. They’re convenient, but I can’t imagine many people buy a house or choose a college after only visiting them virtually. But when it comes to picking an operating system, online previews can work quite well, as the Ubuntu team’s online tour site exemplifies. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s worth a look — even if you don’t use Ubuntu.

Subject: Samsung's Wang was up 22 hours a day, had no time to copy Apple

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

Samsung fired its opening salvo against Apple's allegation that the South Korean giant ripped off the iPhone design, and claimed it worked its arse off to develop its own gadgets. At the two tech titans' ongoing patent trial in the US yesterday, Sammy also argued that Apple's iProducts are not unique. The South Korean firm wheeled out its designer Jeeyuen Wang, who created the icons for the Samsung Galaxy devices. She denied copying Apple's user interface when she worked on the Galaxy range, and claimed that hundreds of designers worked on the original Galaxy S I.

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

This guide explains how to set up mod_geoip with Apache2 on a CentOS 6.3 system. mod_geoip looks up the IP address of the client end user. This allows you to redirect or block users based on their country. You can also use this technology for your OpenX (formerly known as OpenAds or phpAdsNew) ad server to allow geo targeting.

Subject: Keeping up with the Robinsons

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

...Or not keeping up with the Robinsons, as the case may be. I know what Karlie Robinson is up to, thanks to Facebook. But poor Karlie: Todd has his nose pressed to the monitor all month, walking the walk of the talk he talked last month, when he said he was putting out a distro a day for the month of August. Like clockwork, Todd is putting out a distro each day and has done so, so far this month. Allow me a white-flag, hands-in-the-air moment: I surrender! I give up. I can’t keep up with Todd’s herculean project. Rather than sample each distro every day as I had planned, I am going to go about this as if the 31 Days 31 Distros project is a buffet, taking the ones I think I would like and going back to my table to enjoy them.

Subject: Arch migrates to SystemD ..and gets a little-bit better Gnome support!

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

Arch Linux is the fourth major Linux Distro after Fedora, Mageia and OpenSUSE that migrates to systemd as its Init System Manager. While systemd is not a dependency for Gnome, Gnome uses systemd-logind as a user login service in GDM with a fallback to Console-Kit when systemd is absent.Of course the benefits for Arch from SysV to systemd are much more than a better Gnome support!
