OS Survey

Reddit - 2 hours 31 min ago

Greetings, /r/Linux!

I am a student at the University of Tennessee, conducting a survey for one of my classes. The point of this survey is to find out why people use the OS that they do, and hopefully I can gather evidence to show what I found. I chose this sub among others because of its' users knowledge of their OS. I would greatly appreciate it if you took the time to fill out this survey.

You can take it here with Google Forms.

Thanks a lot!

Octa-core Cortex-A53 hacker SBC sells for $60

TuxMachines - 2 hours 52 min ago

FriendlyARM’s $60, open spec “NanoPC-T3” SBC runs Android or Linux on an octa-core Cortex-A53 SoC packed with wireless and media interfaces, plus 8GB eMMC.

The over-caffeinated board builders at Guangzhou, China-based FriendlyARM have shipped their highest-end hacker board yet. The NanoPC-T3 is almost identical to the NanoPC-T2 board, but swaps out the quad-core, Cortex-A9 Samsung S5P4418 SoC for a layout-compatible S5P6818 with eight Cortex-A53 cores that can be clocked dynamically from 400MHz to 1.4GHz. Last month, FriendlyARM’ unveiled an $11, quad-core NanoPi M1 single board computer with similarly open source hardware and Android and Linux software.

  • Using bubblewrap in xdg-app

    At the core of xdg-app is a small helper binary that uses Linux features like namespaces to set up sandbox for the application. The main difference between this helper and a full-blown container system is that it runs entirely as the user. It does not require root privileges, and can never allow you to get access to things you would not otherwise have.

  • Build System Fallbacks

    If you are using Builder from git (such as via jhbuild) or from the gnome-builder-3-20 branch (what will become 3.20.4) you can use Builder with the fallback build system. This is essentially our “NULL” build system and has been around forever. But today, these branches learned something so stupidly obvious I’m ashamed I didn’t do it 6 months ago when implementing Build Configurations.

  • Node.js version 6 is now available
