Linux.com: As container technologies become more complex, using them becomes easier
I have successfully set up 2 bitcoin miners to run cgminer though a Raspberry Pi 3. Using Putty to access it, I have initiated it and it has begun working. However, every time I exit putty, the miner stops.
I moved to the pi to save on some electricity so I don't have to leave my pc on at all times just to run them. Any advice?submitted by /u/ckellingc
Phoronix: What's next for PHP?
Today, the Open Source Robotics Foundation announced a whole bunch of stuff, including a big pile of money from Toyota Research, what is probably an even bigger pile of money from Toyota Research, and the formation of the for-profit Open Source Robotics Corporation. That last thing might sound a little worrisome, since corporation-ness and open source-itude are often at odds, but we checked in with OSRF CEO Brian Gerkey, who explained how it’s all going to work.
Toyota Research Institute (TRI) today announced that it will join forces with the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF) and its newly-formed for profit subsidiary Open Source Robotics Corporation (OSRC) to expand the development of both open source and proprietary tools for Toyota’s fast-growing robotics and automated vehicle research initiatives.
Considered a research experiment rather than the first drum roll in a fully autonomous automotive revolution, Uber plan to use the data it gleans in the lifts — free for passengers willing to trust them — in order to learn more about how self driving cars behave and react when in the real world on real asphalt and under real driving conditions.
In Mashable’s first-hand account of what’s it’s like to be take a ride in a self-driving Uber you’ll notice that, like Tesla, that Ubuntu helps power Uber’s self driving smarts.
And TechCrunch’s Signe Brewster, in a write up of her experience in the same vehicle, says she “came away from my ride trusting the technology. The self-driving car detected obstacles, people and even potholes, and responded intelligently.“
Libre Application Summit hosted by GNOME (LAS GNOME) will be live next week Sept 19-23rd in Portland, OR! The idea of the conference is to aggressively build a measurable market for apps on Linux while working with the Linux kernel community and other user space communities to build an eco-system that can foster greater diversity in applications. We hope this will be a seminal event that will help keep desktop projects like GNOME and KDE viable in future in this new world of containers, cloud, and webapps.
