GNOME 3.21.1 released

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-04-29 22:46

Hi GNOMEers!

development of the next GNOME release, 3.22, has started, and the
first snapshot, 3.21.1, is now available. This is a very early snapshot,
and not too much has landed yet; I expect that to change soon.

To compile GNOME 3.21.1, you can use the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch review: Android Wear climbs a mountain

TuxMachines - Fri, 2016-04-29 22:39

Casio deserves a lot of credit for reshaping Android Wear into an original and unique new product, something I wasn’t sure was possible. It overcomes many of the drawbacks of smartwatches while making total sense as a product in its category; if you’re in the market for a hiking watch that also works as a smartwatch, and you use an Android phone, I think you’ll be very happy with what Casio’s produced. If you’re not looking specifically for a hiking smartwatch? Maybe wait and see if Casio ever makes a G-Shock smartwatch, because this one really isn’t the sort of thing you’ll want to wear every day.

I wrote a blog post about my experience with Linux that /r/linux might enjoy

Reddit - Fri, 2016-04-29 22:31

Hello everyone!

I'm going to keep this short because most of what I have to say is detailed in the blog post.

I've been using Linux for a while, and it's been a painfully blissful journey. I decided to write a post about it, and it was so much fun to take a trip down memory lane and write about the joys and pains of Linux. I wrote about the first time I tried Linux, all my failed attempts at things, and where I am now with Linux. I'd love to keep writing about my experience(s) with Linux, because I realized I'm more passionate about it than I thought, and it's a really, really fun topic to write about

Here's a link to the post, hosted at Medium. I didn't take it too seriously, so if it's too "casual," apologies.

The article is not really informative in any way, it's more a recount of my history with Linux, so if you were expecting to learn something from the post, sorry to disappoint.

Thanks! I'd love to hear feedback, as I plan to continue writing on this topic!

Master OpenStack with 5 new tutorials

LXer - Fri, 2016-04-29 20:38
Returning from OpenStack Summit this week, I am reminded of just how vast the open source cloud ecosystem is and just how many different projects and concepts you need to be familiar with in order to succeed. Although, we're actually quite fortunate with the resources available for keeping up. In addition to the official documentation, many great educational tools are out there, from third party training and certification, to in-person events, and many community-contributed tutorials as well.read more

How to disable MAC learning in a Linux bridge

LXer - Fri, 2016-04-29 19:30
An Ethernet bridge is a network component which interconnects multiple Ethernet networks by forwarding packets from one network to another. Linux has a software implementation of the Ethernet bridge (called "Linux bridge") incorporated into the kernel since 2.6. A Linux bridge is often used to set up a transparent proxy/firewall, or to work as a virtual switch which interconnects multiple virtual machines and containers created on a host.

Define "Year of Desktop Linux"

Reddit - Fri, 2016-04-29 18:08

People are still making articles saying why it will never come. But what does it mean? I'm sure that there will be a wide range of definitions. For some, it happened last decade. For others, when Steam for Linux was released. Maybe it was when Ubuntu was added on to Windows 10. To others, it will not until it totally unseats Windows and becomes the dominant OS. Was there ever a year of Macintosh (outside of the 1980s)? Tell us, Linux reddit.
