AT&T promised in June that it would release all 8.5 million lines of code for ECOMP -- a platform the company developed internally over the past few years -- to the open source community.
I have to modify an ancient script that runs CPIO to a tape device (backs up an old Red Hat server). The blocksize for the cpio command is set to 64k.
Now it has to go to disk instead (specifically a NAS drive) , after some research it seems that I should set it to be 4k - is that correct for CPIO to disk ?
Finding it difficult to find good information.

Does anyone know and effective way to install an OS to a Flash Drive. To be clear I am fully capable of making a live usb and ever persistence mode is not good enough. It creates a partition with an unknown format of ~3GB and cannot be essences which limits my space drastically. So I attempt the install process to the usb and I think we're my issue is with the GRUB loader. It wants to install it to /dev/sda but I decline and install it to the thumb drive because it defeats the purpose of making a portable OS if it is specific to my HDD on my laptop I could just install it side by side if I wanted that. So if anyone could give me advice or suggestions it would be much appreciated.submitted by /u/MetalWinter
Imagine computers that you can have conversations with or control through gestures and head movements. Or even your own thoughts.
There are endless energies and resources for whizbang toys such as games, crappy mobile apps, and new generations of smartphones… but the one area of genuine innovation, the one that is truly ground-breaking, is stuck in Nowheresville. In this glorious year 2016, we're still ignoring computer users with vision, hearing, and other physical limitations.
