Linux.com: Using auditd to monitor some preset events is already quite useful
When Frank Karlitschek, co-founder and former CTO of ownCloud, forked ownCloud into Nextcloud , I expected it to do well. I didn't expect it to have its first major release less than two weeks after the company opened its doors. Well, the first Nextcloud release is out now.
The ads are enticing: The promise of "Free TV" and the chance to "Say goodbye to cable bills forever."
So it's no surprise Canada's cable giants are targeting upstart dealers selling loaded Android TV boxes. The devices enable users to access pirated content with ease for a one-time fee.
Bell Media, Rogers Communications and Quebec's Videotron have taken legal action in Federal Court against five Canadian vendors.
Red Hat is now in the processing of developing a refined approach to how it builds and productizes its OpenStack Platform releases.
The Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform (OSP) was first announced back in June 2013 as a fully-supported commercial solution from Red Hat for the cloud. Since then, Red Hat has updated OSP multiple times, with the most recent milestone, OSP 8, released in April of this year.
The upcoming release of Fedora 24 isn't shipping with PHP 7.0 but for Fedora 25 later in the year is when they plan to migrate to PHP7 for its speed improvements and more.
Security is likely to rise to the top for many enterprises, and these concerns could have an impact on which kinds of applications enterprises end up trusting. All the data rolling in points to the fact that application security concerns are significantly rising at enterprises, not falling.
Releases of new ransomware grew 24 per cent quarter-on-quarter in Q1 2016 as relatively low-skilled criminals continued to harness exploit kits for slinging file-encrypting malware at their marks.
The latest quarterly study by Intel Security also revealed that Mac OS malware grew quickly in Q1, primarily due to an increase in VSearch adware. Mobile malware also increased 17 per cent quarter-over-quarter in Q1 2016.
Two new reports out by The Hill and Vice are both showing that the NSA used programmable Word Macro shortcuts, which are considered a potential security risk by Microsoft.
Problem: Tonnes of videos and TV shows exist in a central repository running Linux Mint. Kids don't want to SFTP files, they just want to view a preview (or boxart etc) and tap their finger to view a video, like Netflix. If they are going on a long car ride, it'd be nice to have some caching.
Solution: Something like Netflix, but localized to a Linux server on the lan with a light client, perhaps just web based or maybe android.
Does anyone know of something very close to this? I don't want to go the full media server route as many of those cost money and do much more than I/we need. I'm thinking a python web server or maybe some php with apache, or maybe something Node.js based that's serving content. The viewers can be just straight web browser or maybe a bit more fancy and an (open source) android client.
Do I have to build this myself or does something like it exist?submitted by /u/johndenvers_ghost
Phoronix: TSN is designed for establishing low-latency, jitter-free, guaranteed-bandwidth links over a LAN
Today, June 14, 2016, Canonical informed us that they've been working for some time with developers from various major GNU/Linux distributions to make the Snap package format universal for all OSes.
The last post explained the new version policy that we hope to use for the future of Gtk. This post aims to explain some of the benefits of that system, and also why we considered, but ultimately rejected some other options.
The first major takeaway from the new system (and the part that people have been most enthusiastic about) is the fact that this gives many application authors and desktop environments something that they have been asking for for a long time: a versions of Gtk that has the features of Gtk 3, but the stability of Gtk 2. Under the proposed scheme, that version of Gtk 3 will be here in about a year. Gtk version (let’s say) 3.26 will be permanently stable, with all of the nice new features that have been added to Gtk 3 over the last 5+ years.
There's an upcoming GNU/Linux conference for those living in the Seattle area, and it promises to be a starting point for anyone interested in switching to a free and open source operating system for their personal computers.
It appears that Intel's Vulkan open-source Linux driver is finally in good enough shape for being able to handle Valve's Dota 2 game.
The AllSeen Alliance, a cross-industry collaboration advancing the Internet of Things (IoT) through an open source software project, today announced seven new members, rapid growth of the AllJoyn User Group program (AUG), and details for the summer AllJoyn Developer Tour Asia.
AllSeen Alliance new members represent a diverse group comprising three smart home companies and an academic institution, all committed to advancing an open and interoperable IoT.
Henrik Austad of Cisco has published very early code for implementing a TSN core driver in the Linux kernel. TSN is short for Time Sensitive Networking and was formerly known as Audio/Video Bridging (AVB).
TSN is designed for establishing low-latency, jitter-free, guaranteed-bandwidth links over a LAN by reserving a path on the network. In order to support TSN, the NIC and the network itself must be compatible.
The OnePlus 3 is practically perfect, save for expandable storage, waterproofing, fast wireless charging and a QuadHD display. To be honest, I could live without any of these.
OnePlus has really outdone itself and its competitors this year. I dare you to find a better Android phone for $400.
News this morning from storage vendor Scality that the company is announcing the general availability of its S3 Server Software. The offering is an open source version of Scality's S3 API and allows developers to code to Amazon Web Services' S3 storage API on a local machine.
Packaged as a Docker container (what else!) the idea is that developers can local build applications that thereafter can be deployed on premises, on AWS or some combination of the above.
Well ahead of the early July promise, today Nextcloud makes available Nextcloud 9. With this release we also announce to release all enterprise functionality as open source. Building on top of the open source ownCloud core and adding functionality and fixes, this release provides a solid base for users to migrate to. All enterprise functionality users and customers need will be made available over the coming weeks, fully developed in the open and under the AGPL license.
Less than two weeks after ownCloud was forked into Nextcloud, the project today did their version 9 release.
Figuring out whether or not the voxel is inside or outside the model at every layer is harder for SLA printers, which have to take explicit account of the interior “empty” space inside the model. [Matt] and [Martin]’s software calculates this on the fly as the software is slicing. To do this, [Matt] devised a clever algorithm that leverages existing hardware to quickly accumulate the inside-or-out state of voxels during the slicing.
Capital One is one of the nation's largest banks. It started as a credit card company, really as a startup in the late 1980s. Its founder, Richard Fairbank, is still its CEO today. Fairbank's idea was to build a better financial services company by using information and data to make better decisions and build better products and services for customers—making Capital One an early "big data" company. The company launched around the notion of an information-based strategy, which in that era was a pretty novel concept.
