Tarballs are due on 2016-05-23 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.21.2
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 3.21.2. 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!
Maybe the wrong sub but I just got an Alienware 17 R3, sky lake i7, 128gb SSD , 1 tb HDD, 980m 8gb and 16gb ram. Although, I'm familiar with Linux, this is my first Alienware. Would installing Kali be much of a hassle? I want to dual boot Windows 10 and Kali but I'm not certain Kali will recognize all the different drivers Alienware has. Has anyone installed Kali on an Alienware? Any troubles with the installation or was it pretty straight forward? Thanks for any info!submitted by /u/Mo0se69
Hey. Just starting out....want to teach myself to code/eventually go to school for web dev so i need a rig. I just need something basic to muck around on til i can actually pay tuition. Anyone know of a cheaper rig thats decent or how abt those mini pc's...are they decent enough to do beginner stuff on? Ive been on a few sites to look at prebuilts but i dont want to invest in something i dont know much about so any tips would be helpful. (I am interested in a mini pc mainly because they are cheaper and i dont need anything too serious, im probably going to be flipping through linux for dummies while bopping around on this guy so any opinions on the mini pcs wld be super helpful too) Thanks Guys!

Embedded Artists and Rohm have launched a 37 x 27mm COM built around an NXP i.MX7 featuring a low-power Rohm PMIC, 1GB LP-DDR3, and 8GB eMMC.
You know the Internet of Things has become “a thing” when the main selling point of a computer-on-module is the properties of its power management IC. In the case of the iMX7 Dual uCOM Board from Swedish embedded firm Embedded Artists and Japanese IC semiconductor firm Rohm, however, the module has more than its power-sipping Rohm BD71815GW PMIC going for it. Measuring a wee 37 x 27mm, the Linux-friendly uCOM also appears to be one of the smallest COMs to date built on NXP’s power-stingy i.MX7 Dual SoC.
