Subject: DARPA’s Robotics Challenge Marches On

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

The Department of Defense’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is moving ahead at full steam in its quest to develop, or spur the development of, humanoid robots that it can use for its own purposes — in this case, disaster response in areas too dangerous for humans but in need of a human touch (DARPA cites the Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown as one example).

After writing this morning about the most interesting Linux 3.7 kernel features, I also decided to list some of the work that's likely to land for the Linux 3.8 kernel, This list is far from being exhaustive but just some of the interesting and known features that will likely be ready for the Linux 3.8 merge window.

Last week marked eight years since Ubuntu made its appearance on the GNU/Linux scene. Since October 2004, there has been a release of this distribution every six months, the initial buzz being very loud and then gradually fading away.

Subject: Gnome State in Wayland

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

Wayland is the next big thing in Linux Desktop since ..the beginning? It is meant to work aside with the problematic X (with the tremendous amount of functionality) and eventually (in many years!) is gonna replace it. Few days ago Wayland released a 1.0 stable API and while GTK and Clutter have also been updated to support these changes, we have long way ahead of us to see a full Gnome support for Wayland.

Subject: The Perfect Desktop - Xubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal)

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

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Xubuntu 12.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Xubuntu uses the lightweight XFCE desktop environment.

Subject: Onwards to Four

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

Not being the sort who rest much, we're already at work on Plasma Active Four. We met up on irc to firm up our plans. You can read the minutes here, thanks to Thomas who took the time to summarize the multi-hour session.We are moving to a devel workflow in which we aim to have an "always-releasable" master branch. All development will happen in branches, something we essentially do already, but we will now also have an integration branch so we can bring the various branches together for testing before merging them when ready, branch by branch, into master. We have been working towards for some time, adjusting our habits one step at a time. This will only cover the plasma-mobile, share-like-connect and plasma-active-maliit repositories for now, but my hope is that as Frameworks 5 arrives we'll be able to broaden this to the bigger shared repositories such as kde-workspace.

Subject: How to disable natural scrolling in Pear Linux

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

Apple always loves to do weird things. When MacOS Lion was released, the mouse scrolling direction is reversed and called "natural scrolling". It means you will have to scroll up the middle wheel to read the lower part of the page and vice versa. And Pear Linux adopt this feature too to make it behave like Mac OS.

Subject: Cisco's CEO Rips Into The Patent System & All Who Abuse It, Big Or Small

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

There are plenty of discussions about the problem of patent trolls, but if you think that's the only problem with the patent system, you haven't been paying attention. There have been a ton of major clashes going on between big companies, spending billions buying up patents, suing each other... and not putting that money into innovation or lower prices. So it's nice to see Cisco CEO John Chambers speak out against the patent system by calling out both the trolls and the big tech companies for abusing the system and hindering innovation.

Subject: Crowdfunded Project Attempts To Unveil Intellectual Ventures' Hidden Web Of Patents

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

We've written about patent trolling giant Intellectual Ventures many times, including how it is notoriously secretive about almost everything. Its deals with companies (often involving them forking over hundreds of millions of dollars to not get sued) are hidden away behind strict non-disclosure agreements. It also hides the various patents in over 1,000 shell companies. At other times it "sells" patents to independent trolls, but most people believe that it still gets a cut of any revenue that comes out of those trolling operations. An operation called IP Checkups -- a "patent analytics firm" -- is trying to shine some more light on IV's secret patent portfolio and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to investigate the company's patents.

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

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on an OpenSUSE 12.2 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.

Subject: Consequences of the ext4 bug

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

Apparently, problems caused by last week's Ext4 bug only occur when combining several critical mount and umount options; this renders the bug harmless for most Linux users – so far, it has only affected one user. Nevertheless, ext4 lead developer Theodore "Ted" Ts'o plans to draw the necessary conclusions from the incident.
