Subject: Unity WebApps Available In The Ubuntu 12.10 Official Repositories

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

The Unity WebApps feature has been available in Ubuntu 12.10 for some time, but besides the Amazon and Ubuntu One Music Store webapps which are installed by default, no other webapps were available for installation. Today, the webapps that were available in the preview PPA are available in the official Ubuntu 12.10 repositories, but as separate packages so you can install only the webapps you want and use.

Subject: ASRock’s OMG provides parental control straight from the motherboard

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

From a security perspective, the most interesting feature of the UEFI Setup Utility is OMG (the Online Management Guard). It is a parental control system built into the motherboard. Neat.

Subject: Unity 6.6: Still Regressing On Performance?

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

With the recent release of the Unity 6.6 desktop for Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 2, benchmarks were done to see how the OpenGL gaming performance compares to that of Unity 6.4 from the earlier beta state of the Quantal Quetzal, plus the respective Compiz versions. At least for Intel Ivy Bridge graphics under some workloads, it looks like the Unity/Compiz updates are slowing down the GL performance even further.

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

You're already in the know regarding the C programming language. You got the taste of it and felt like you want to go further and write your own. Or maybe help the community and package that favorite software of yours for the distribution you like and use. Regardless of the situation, this part of the C development series will show you how to create packages for two of the most popular distributions, Debian and Fedora. If you read our articles so far and you have some solid knowledge of the command line, and you can say that you know your distro of choice, you're ready.

Subject: A Patch-Set Making Btrfs ~20% Faster

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

A revised patch-set was published a few days ago that can make meta-data operations for the Btrfs file-system approximately 20% faster. The latest patches build upon what I wrote about in February with A Patch That Can Make Btrfs 5~10% Faster. The idea comes down to providing an extent buffer cache for each i-node so that the item doesn't need to be searched from the root of a B+ tree everytime, thereby making searches quicker. The earlier patch wasn't merged but now it's up to a second version consisting of three patches and a stated 20% performance improvement for meta-data operations.

Subject: Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2 (x86_64)

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

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on OpenSUSE 12.2.
