I realized this morning that this week marks two years since Mark Shuttleworth shared his plans for Ubuntu's Unity to run on Wayland. Even after two years, Ubuntu's engagement with Wayland hasn't advanced much and it's consummation of Wayland is still likely at a minimum another year out...

Eight years ago today, Mozilla launched the first version of Firefox. We had the audacity to believe that we could change things. We believed that a community of people who understood the power of the Web, and who put people above profits, could build something amazing.

Subject: The Z-Factor: Meet the Simon Cowell of Linux

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

Canonical chief Mark Shuttleworth - a friend and my former boss at Canonical - has never had much love for rival Linux vendor Red Hat. So when he labelled Red Hat Enterprise Linux "legacy" technology during his keynote at LinuxCon in Barcelona, Spain, this week, aligning it with Solaris' faded glory, it was perhaps not surprising.

Subject: Microsoft Inks More Android Licensing Deals

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

Microsoft has added several vendors to the list of electronics manufacturers that are paying it licensing fees for using Google's Android operating system and/or Linux in their products. The company has long-claimed that Linux and Android, a Linux derivative, violates Windows patents, and in the past has threatened to sue alleged infringers that don't pay up.

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

DIY biology is a hot topic and has piqued the interest of the Wellcome Trust and NESTA in the UK and the FBI in the US. What has it got to do with open source and hacking? Quite a lot as it happens and those curious could get their hands dirty, metaphorically speaking, at a series of workshops held in Manchester over the weekend of 3 and 4 November 2012.

Subject: Not All Hope Is Lost For AMD CPU Support On Linux

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

While many Linux users are rightfully quite mad over AMD laying off many Linux kernel developers and shutting down their Operating System Research Center, not all hope is lost for future AMD CPU products being well supported under Linux. AMD's (few) graphics driver developers working on the open-source Radeon stack were unaffected by the recent layoffs and OSRC closure, while those Linux developers working on future CPU product enablement, compiler optimizations, enhancing Linux virtualization support, and other areas were the ones hit very hard.

In the latest beta release of its Chrome web browser, Google has added a number of new features aimed at developers. The first of these is expanded datalist support – now, developers can set specific dates and times for input elements. As pointed out by Google Software Engineer Peter Beverloo, arbitrary dates and times can still be entered.

Subject: UN Wants Multi-Stakeholder Discussions On Rethinking Copyright -- Ignores That The Only Stakeholder That Matters Is The Public

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

The UN's Internet Governance Forum had a gathering to discuss rethinking copyright, in which WIPO made the case that it should lead "multi-stakeholder" discussions on how to reform copyright. WIPO, of course, has a history of having a rather one-sided view of copyright and who the "stakeholders" are.

Subject: Nagios plugin to check an OCSP server with hardcoded certificate

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

This is a nagios plugin to check an OCSP server. It does so by having a PEM encoded certificate in the code, and the PEM encoded certificate of the issuer. This is sent to the OCSP server and the response is then parsed to give the correct nagios result. It is targeted at administrators who have their own OCSP and need to know when it is not working. The certificate is in the code because this saves going to a website and getting the certificate, the issuers certificate and then sending that to the OCSP server. It also can be used for certificates which are not public.

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

Over the past year I have looked at two distributions (Liberté and LPS) which have a strong focus on security. Staying secure and anonymous on-line is a popular topic these days as many people are concerned about freedom of speech and monitored communications. Many of us are concerned about our privacy and, with that in mind, I would like to introduce our readers to a Linux distribution called Tails.

Subject: Ext4 Data Corruption Bug and Solution

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

Ext4 (the fourth extended file system) has been the gold standard for the Linux kernel ever since it was declared "stable" in October 2008. It was the direct descendant of ext3 (released November 2001) which introduced journaling to the previously unjournaled ext2 file system that has been with us since 1993. Ever since its release into the wild, ext4 has proven to be fast and reliable. I've installed it onto more computers than I can count, and never had any reason to complain about it...until recently. But a serious bug has crept into the ext4 stable release, causing data corruption on some computers running Linux kernels 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6.
