GNOME 3.21.1 unstable tarballs due

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-04-22 03:52

Hello all,

Tarballs are due on 2016-04-25 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.21.1
unstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule
so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will
be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that
will probably be too late to get in 3.21.1. If you are not able to
make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late,
please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!

An Easy Way To Build An Ubuntu Kernel With Hopefully Better Scheduler Performance

Phoronix - Fri, 2016-04-22 01:58
Since the recent news about the Linux kernel being in worse shape than some people imagine, there's already been some downstream corrective action taking place. Clear Linux is one of the distributions already patching/tweaking their kernel for better scheduler performance but so far we haven't heard anything from the Ubuntu camp. Fortunately, there's been others working on their own solutions...

  • Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS Officially Released with GNOME 3.18, Snappy Support

    The Ubuntu GNOME team has announced today, April 21, 2016, the official release of the Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), as part of the launch of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system.

    It's been three years since the promising Ubuntu GNOME distribution was started, which later become an official Ubuntu flavor due to the demand from the community to use a pure GNOME desktop environment on top of a solid Ubuntu Linux base, which was not technically possible because of dependency conflicts with the Unity interface.

Security Leftovers

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-04-22 00:50
  • Thursday's security updates
  • libressl - more vague promises

    There hasn’t been a lot of noise coming out of the LibreSSL camp recently. Mostly there’s not much to report, so any talks or presentations will recover a lot of the same material. But it’s an election year, and in that spirit, we can look back at some promises previously made and hopefully make a few new ones.

  • My OpenWrt Tor configuration

    In my previous article I shared my thoughts on running Tor on the router. I described an ideal Tor router configuration and argued that having Tor on the router benefits both security and usability.

    This article is about that ideal Tor router configuration. How did I configure my router, and why did I choose the configuration? The interesting part is that it really is “just configuration”. No programming involved. Even more interesting, it's easy too!
