Subject: Stable Linux kernel hit by ext4 data corruption bug

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

Linux kernel developer Theodore "Ted" Ts'o has released a series of patches for what he has called "a Lance Armstrong bug" in the kernel, meaning behaviour that does not trip up tests but also makes the kernel work differently than intended. A user had reported a problem that caused them to lose data; the kernel developers quickly narrowed this down to a fault in the ext4 implementation that was introduced with the release of Linux 3.6.2, just over a week ago. Apparently, the data corruption bug was hard to track down as it only manifests itself if a system is rebooted twice in a relatively short period of time.

While it looked hopeful at first with today's announcement of a fully open-source graphics stack for the Broadcom VideoCore found in the popular Raspberry Pi development board, upon closer examination it's actually not that good.

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

I often discuss the Linux port of Scrivener with my writer friend Ken McConnell. We both like Scrivener's interface, and we both prefer to use Linux as our writing platform. Unfortunately, the Linux port of Scrivener just doesn't compare to the OS X version. The other day, Ken told me about Plume Creator.

IRC (chat) Mailings lists/email Bug tracker Wikis Teleconference Version Control System EtherPad Facebook Groups Most businesses today know that utilizing collaboration tools increases the liklihood success for a project, and for the organization as a whole. When people work together, brain power is multiplied; not only does more work tend to get done, but better work.
