Subject: Should the root account be disabled in Fedora 18?

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

But come Fedora 18, the next stable release, the root account will be disabled by default. It is one of the many new features of Anaconda, the Fedora system installation program. That at least is what you see in the just released Fedora 18 Alpha.

Subject: The Raspberry Pi gets a turbo mode

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

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has performed testing on the effects of overclocking and overvolting, and is now providing what it calls a "turbo mode" for the Raspberry Pi mini-computer. While the Foundation has always supported these kinds of modifications, they have in the past voided the customer's warranty for the product – a sticky bit in the BCM2835 chip makes sure this operation cannot be performed undetected. The turbo mode option enables users to get more performance out of their Raspberry Pis without having to be afraid of affecting their warranty.

Subject: The Linux Desktop: Not Dead, Just Broken

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

Faithful readers of the Linux Blog Safari column here at LinuxInsider may recall the woeful report a few weeks back that a murder had been committed -- by Apple, no less! -- and that the Linux desktop was dead. It was a distressing report, to be sure, not least because there was no corpse in sight.

Swiss Federal Railways wants compensation for use of its iconic design.Apple added a Clock app to the iPad in iOS 6, but the company may get into trouble for the visual look of the app's analog-style clock face. According to Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger, Apple's designers copied the iconic—and trademarked—look of the Swiss Federal Railway (Schweizerische Bundesbahnen, or SBB) clocks used in train stations all over Switzerland. And the SBB wants Apple to pay up.
