FSF Says Firing Wasn’t Discrimatory

Both Richard Stallman and John Sullivan have issued statements concerning the allegations made against the FSF by Libreboot's lead developer.

Do we still need framebuffer virtual terminals?

Reddit - Sat, 2016-09-17 16:13

Many Linux distros still spawn 6 login terminals which can be accessed with Ctrl+Alt+F1 - Ctrl+Alt+F6. In the day of graphical desktop, is there really a need for these? They seem like a legacy thing that hangs in the background year after year.

I suspect most people drop there just because X.org is unresponsive or otherwise messed up. Therefore, to me it would make sense to only have some kind of local root emergency console that could be accessed with Ctrl+Alt+F1, and that would be it. Put a little Tux logo with a spanner in his hand there. Nice and professional. If someone still needed those old login consoles, he could explicitly enable them.

What do you think?

FSF Says Firing Wasn’t Discrimatory

TuxMachines - Sat, 2016-09-17 15:47

Friday afternoon after we published our report, Richard Stallman, founder and president of FSF, posted a brief, unofficial statement in an email to the thread around Rowe’s email. “The dismissal of the staff person was not because of her gender,” he said. “Her gender now is the same as it was when we hired her. It was not an issue then, and it is not an issue now.”

  • Builder Nightly Flatpak

    For a while now, you’ve been able to get Builder from the gnome-apps-nightly Flatpak repository. Until now, it had a few things that made it difficult to use. We care a whole lot about making our tooling available via Flatpak because it is going to allow us to get new code into users hands quicker, safer, and more stable.

    So over the last couple of weeks I’ve dug in and really started polishing things up. A few patches in Flatpak, a few patches in Builder, and a few patches in Sysprof start getting us towards something refreshing.

Rugged, fanless Skylake box-PC targets transportation applications

LXer - Sat, 2016-09-17 13:09
Adlink’s “MXC-6400” is a rugged fanless transportation focused box-PC with a 6th Gen Core CPU, hot-swappable 2.5-inch SATA bays, and lots of PCIe expansion. The MXC-6400 is the third rugged industrial computer we’ve seen from Adlink that runs Intel’s 6th Generation Core “Skylake” processors, following the high-end MXE-5500 and the “value” MVP-6000.

Should I use Docker or manually provision the server?

Reddit - Sat, 2016-09-17 12:15

My team has to build this application for a client, and I am thinking of using DigitalOcean to host it. Event though DigitalOcean offers what they call 'one-click apps' (they have one for our basic stack), I think we will have to customize the server for our needs. The two main options are to use Docker containerization (i.e. use Swarm or Compose to create multiple services) or use any provision tool (probably Chef).

I need to know which is simpler to manage, deploy, and then scale (if there is an upscaling need).
