Subject: Sharing Terminal Sessions With Tmux And Screen

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

tmux and GNU Screen are well-known utilities which allow multiplexing of virtual consoles. Using either, it is possible to start a session, detach, move to a different machine and resume the session in uninterrupted progress. It's also possible to use these tools to share a single session between more than one user at the same time.

Subject: Kernel Log - Coming in 3.6 (Part 3): Architecture

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

Linux 3.6 can cut off the power to PCIe chips and ATA ports. A new userspace driver framework is designed to provide faster access to individual PCI/PCIe devices for virtualised systems. Linux kernel version 3.6, expected to be released in about one to two weeks, can send PCIe devices into the "D3cold" deep sleep state; this is supported by certain modern computers to completely power down individual PCIe devices (1, 2, 3). The Libata subsystem can now put individual ATA ports into such a sleep state; this is to be the basis for code that is being prepared for future kernel versions to support deep sleep states for optical drives, a technology that is called ZPODD (Zero-Power Optical Disk Drive).

Subject: Reasons to run Occidentalis on your Raspberry Pi

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

Matt Jadud details his first encounter with Raspberry Pi. He chose to boot Occidentalis by Adafruit Industries on the Raspberry Pi for several reasons. First, he was able to purchase a $10 WiFi adapter which was supported out-of-the-box by Occidentalis. They also just released v0.2. Jadud explains that it's much more hacker friendly. He provides a long list of features supporting this.

Subject: What Ever Happend to Pine

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

Today when people hear the word Pine, they automatically think about the Christmas tree, about its meaning and the joy of Christmas. For others, the word PINE brings back memories from "the good old days", the days when Linux and especially the folks at the University of Washington needed a good, easy to use and most important: free mail managing program. Thus, in 1989, Pine was conceived, and its name had nothing to do with the tree, simply because PINE is an abbreviation of the most generic software name: Program for Internet News and E-mail.
