  • Looking At The New "Critical" Security Firmware Update Hitting Systems - Delivers New Intel Microcode - Phoronix

    Earlier this week the Linux Vendor Firmware Service began surging with activity following many new system firmware files being uploaded for what appears to be a "high severity upcoming security issue" but currently undisclosed. That issue hasn't been made public yet, but after poking around it is updating the Intel CPU microcode.

    After that earlier article, Red Hat's Richard Hughes who is the lead LVFS/fwupd lead developer commented that they shipped more than 156,000 firmware updates to end-users in a single day. The day after they were still at around twice their usual volume. For hardware with LVFS support for firmware updates, it's been a busy week but that only covers a small portion of the hardware out there.

  • How to use Filters in Wireshark

    Wireshark is a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and it is developed by a community of enthusiastic developers. Wireshark (Formerly Ethereal) is used for capturing and investigating the traffic on a network. With Wireshark one can see what is going on their network: You can see from where the traffic is coming in and where it is going to. If you are working in a production environment, you are going to get a lot of traffic. It will be very cumbersome to inspect this traffic without the knowledge of Wiresharks’s filter functionalities. Using the filters you can see exactly the type of traffic you want and everything else will be removed from the scene.

Tumbleweed Updates From openSUSE People

staro 3 ur 22 sec
  • Tools Strace, BusyBox Update in Tumbleweed - openSUSE News

    openSUSE Tumbleweed had a variety of package updates in smaller snapshots throughout this week.

    A few things being prepared for Tumbleweed is that the Linux Kernel 5.16.1 was scheduled for check in and pre-integration tests for GNU Compiler Collection 12 have been started; the rolling release anticipates a merge of GCC 12 in mid-Spring.

    The latest Tumbleweed snapshot, 20220117, updated Italian translations for libstorage-ng 4.4.75 and added python-rpm-macros for building the package. Haskell support was dropped in the thrift 0.15.0 package, which is a scalable cross-language service framework for Remote Procedure Call and Inter-Process Communication. No changelogs were provided for the plugins package written in Rust called gstreamer-plugins-rs. The remaining packages in the snapshot were all Python Package Index updates. Among the key PyPI packages to point out is the major version update of python-unicodedata2 14.0.0, which dropped support for End of Life Python 2.7 and 3.5 and added support for Python 3.9, 3.10 and PyPy3. A Tumbleweed arm 20220118 snapshot was release updating the same package listed above.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2022/03

    Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

    7 days have passed since my last review – and as many snapshots have been released since then too. And this even includes my error of one day performing the check-in ‘slightly too late’ (i.e. past midnight). That’s the reason that 0119 did not exist. The check-in was too late and it was already January 20th by then. The snapshots released were numbered 0113, 0114, 0115, 0116, 0117, 0118, and 0120.

  • How to Set Up NFS Server and Client on Ubuntu 20.04

    NFS (Network File System) is a distributed file system protocol that allows a user on a client computer to access files over a computer network much like local storage is accessed. It is a popular, cross-platform and distributed file system protocol used to export local file systems over the network so that clients can share directories and files with others over a network and interact with them as though they are mounted locally. This distributed file system protocol allows a user on a client computer to access files over a network in the same way they would access a local storage file. Because it is an open standard, anyone can implement the protocol.

    Ubuntu 20.04 supports NFS version 3(NFSv3) and 4(NFSv4). The default NFS version is 4.2 which features support for Access Control Lists (ACLs), server-side copy, sparse files, space reservation, labeled NFS, layout enhancements, and much more.

    In this guide, we will learn how to install and configure the NFS Server and NFS client on Ubuntu 20.04.

  • Linux Sleep Command - ByteXD

    The sleep command is useful for delaying a script for a specified amount of time. In Linux or Unix-like operating systems, most programmers use the sleep command when they need to stop the execution of a particular command or bash script after the specified number of intervals.

    By default, it takes intervals in seconds but, we can also use the small suffix such as seconds (s), minutes (h), days (d) that will further convert into other formats. The delay amount with the sleep command is specified by a number.

    In this article, we’ll demonstrate how to use the Linux sleep command on our system with the help of various examples.

  • Game devs don't seem convinced on the Steam Deck from the GDC 2022 survey | GamingOnLinux

    The annual game developer survey from GDC is out now for 2022 and it has some interesting insights as usual. That includes thoughts on the upcoming Steam Deck, with it clearly not selling everyone.

    Having a little browse through it today and here's a few things to stuck out to me. For starters, of the ~2,700 developers surveyed about 7% said they are currently developing for Linux. Interestingly, 8% said their next project would be developed for Linux. When it comes to what platform developers are most interested in, Linux sat at 7%. As expected all three of those saw "PC" as the top platform, which by that they of course mean specifically Windows.

    Stadia, Google's once promising cloud gaming solution doesn't seem to be really getting any love with it seeing 3-5% in those same questions. Streaming just doesn't seem all that popular with developers, with even Xbox Project xCloud (now just called Xbox Cloud Gaming) also seeing pretty low percentage interest from developers.

    Browser-based gaming is here to stay though, as according to the survey it seems 9-11% of developers are currently doing it or planning to do it.

  • Aditi’s Open Source Journey

    Hi! I am Aditi from India.

    According to Wikipedia, India annually produces 1M engineering graduates! (Yep! That’s a lot). And I am one of the 1M graduating in 2022. Just like most people, when I started studying back in 2018, I was pretty lost!

    I spent my first three semesters trying to find a perfect road-map to being a good developer in a sea of infinite possibilities, skimming through various options. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, I just knew, I liked being in the field! It took me 1.5 years to realize that there is no perfect roadmap, it’s just as simple as when you start something, you like it, you stay consistent and end up in the right place!


    One of the best pieces of advice I received from her: “Switch from Windows to Linux!”


    I finished my outreachy initial application and devoted all my time in finding the perfect organization. That’s when I found GNOME. The skills required were C++ and JS – two languages I knew I had some experience in and liked working with. The GNOME community was indeed awesome. I never felt like an outsider. And that’s when I met Philip Chimento, one of the best mentors I’ve ever had. I remember being super excited when I finished building my first small app using GJS! (It just read a file and returned the number of lines, but it worked and that felt like a good enough reason to go on! ). I couldn’t wait to officially start my internship with GNOME but my Outreachy initial application got rejected again because of time commitment issues.

This End Times Cyberdeck Is Apocalypse-Ready'

staro 10 ur 34 min

In the cyberdeck world, some designs are meant to evoke a cyberpunk vibe, an aesthetic that’s more lighthearted than serious. Some cyberdecks, though, are a little more serious about hardening their designs against adverse conditions. That’s where something like the ARK-io SurvivalDeck comes into play.

Granted, there does seem to be at least a little lightheartedness at play with the aptly named [techno-recluse]’s design. It’s intended to be an “Apocalypse Repository of Knowledge”, which may be stretching the point a bit. But it does contain an impressive amount of tech — wide-band software defined radio (SDR) covering HF to UHF, GPS module, a sensor for air pressure, temperature, and humidity, and a Raspberry Pi 3B running Kali Linux. Everything is housed in a waterproof ammo can; a 3D printed bezel holds an LCD touchscreen and a satisfying array of controls, displays and ports. The lid of the ammo can holds a keyboard, which was either custom-made to precisely fit the lid or was an incredibly lucky find.

  • Why Artificial Intelligence (AI) pilot projects fail: 4 reasons [Ed: When your project is basically a bunch of buzzwords strung together and you use Gartner to make a point about it]

    The artificial intelligence (AI) industry is continually evolving, with new solutions being created and deployed every day. Gartner predicts that 75 percent of organizations will have operational AI by 2024. However, Gartner’s research shows that only 53 percent of AI projects make it from prototype to production. What is holding new AI pilot projects back from hitting production?

    Successful AI projects are all around us, but there is no single best way to create and deploy an AI product with all of these developments. There are, however, four reasons businesses might be missing the mark when it comes to their AI solution.

  • 3 change management issues that keep IT leaders up at night

    For many of us, IT challenges can cause sleepless nights. As IT teams persistently leverage technology to solve business problems, rapid change is accompanied by fear of the unknown.

    For example, at the start of the pandemic, companies were forced to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy to meet the tsunami of consumer digital demand. Making that change meant racing into the unknown for IT teams. There was no certainty about what would – and would not – work.

  • How Are API Management and Service Mesh Different? - DevOps.com

    The use of APIs and microservices is increasing—a recent study from F5 estimated that the industry is approaching 200 million total APIs. As organizations expand their use of APIs and microservices, they inevitably require some form of service management architecture. There are primarily two major design options for implementing this: An API management system or a service mesh.


    I recently chatted with Mark Cheshire, director of product at Red Hat, about the emergence of both API management and service mesh. According to Cheshire, both approaches accomplished similar goals but evolved very differently. Below, we’ll revisit why these two paradigms emerged and compare and contrast them. In a separate article, we’ll consider when it’s best to integrate them both.

  • DevOps, Pandemics and 2022’s Cloud-y Future

    When I wrote the post “DevOps, DevApps, and the Death of Infrastructure” last year, at the time I saw many things coming, often influenced by the pandemic. In 2020, McKinsey and Co. found that digital transformation accelerated globally due to the pandemic. As we finished 2021 with new considerations for continued digital transformation, it is no longer a trend but a business requirement for companies that want to stay relevant in a socially distanced world.

  • Linux 5.17 Adds GPU Recovery Support For AMD Rembrandt APUs - Phoronix

    On top of all the GPU driver feature changes to merge last week, yesterday marked the first batch of "fixes" sent in to Linux 5.17 for the Direct Rendering Manager drivers. Notable from this batch of fixes is getting GPU recovery enabled for Yellow Carp / Rembrandt APUs.

    GPU recovery for these forthcoming APUs was sent in as a fix since at this stage it just needed to add a Yellow Carp check to a case statement. The rest of the code is already in place for handling GPU recovery on Yellow Carp. But from past experience, GPU recovery is very useful when encountering Radeon GPU hangs on Linux but thankfully those are far less common these days with the great shape of their open-source driver stack.

  • After Nearly Six Years, Dirk Hohndel Is Leaving VMware

    Wow! This is surprise!

    A week ago, Dirk Hohndel announced on LinkedIn that after five years and eight months he’s leaving VMware, where he’s been serving as a VP and as its chief open source officer. The decision was his, he said, and there’s nothing to indicate that it has anything to do with VMware’s newfound independence (the company was spun-off by its owner Dell in November).

  • Nintendo GameCube / Wii / Wii U Get Real-Time Clock Driver With Linux 5.17 - Phoronix

    The RTC subsystem changes have been submitted for the in-development Linux 5.17 kernel ahead of its merge window winding down this weekend.

    For those hobbyists interested in running Linux on Nintendo video game consoles, Linux 5.17 is set to introduce the "gamecube" RTC driver that provides real-time clock support for not only the Nintendo GameCube but also the Wii and Wii U hardware.

    The GameCube / Wii / Wii U all leverage a MX23L4005 chip with a clock and 64 bytes of SRAM storage. The new Linux driver provides support for using that chip as the real-time clock device with read/set support.

  • Intel Linux Driver Adds New DG2 "G12" Graphics Variant - Phoronix

    To date the Intel Linux graphics driver has supported Intel's DG2 "Alchemist" G10 and G11 sub-platforms/variants as the main designs to this point. However, at the end of last year we began seeing "G12" references surface in their compute stack and now the Intel open-source Linux kernel driver is formally preparing the DG2-G12 variant support.

    Posted a few minutes ago were the first Intel "i915" Linux kernel graphics driver patches for bringing up the new G12 sub-platform.

staro 15 ur 40 min

CH32V307V-EVT-R1 is a development board based on WCH CH32V307 RISC-V microcontroller with an Ethernet port, an USB Type-C port, and eight UART interfaces accessible through headers.

As we noted in our article about CH583 Bluetooth 5.3 RISC-V microcontroller, WCH (Jiangsu Qin Heng) has started to hare resources like datasheets and code samples through Github. They’ve done the same again for CH32V307 with schematics (PDF only), a datasheet in English, and firmware either bare metal or based on RT-Thread OS to control the eight serial interfaces over Ethernet.

  • How to Change Ubuntu's Login Screen Background - OMG! Ubuntu!

    I’m not saying the expansive block of aubergine that greets me on the Ubuntu login screen is bad, but it’s not really me.

    Until now I’ve not bothered to look into how to change the GDM background because —as I’m sure many of you are about to point out— I see it for about 3 seconds tops (6 maybe, if I make a typo in my password which, yes, is often).

    Or to put it another way: Ubuntu’s login screen is not something most of us see long enough to care enough about.

    And yet this evening curiosity got the better of me. I looked into how to change the Ubuntu login screen background and to my surprise I learned it’s …not that easy to do!

    Back in the days of LightDM (Ubuntu’s old login manager) we could change the login background image in a couple clicks. GDM is a tougher nut to crack; GNOME devs really want us to see anything but a solid colour in the greeter!

  • How to Install MongoDB in RHEL, CentOS, Rocky & AlmaLinux

    The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. Its popularity is in its embrace of NoSQL document-oriented databases.

    While relational databases embrace the use of tables and rows to store data, MongoDB fancies the use of JSON-like documents which additionally supports the implementation of dynamic schemas.

    The scalability and developer agility traits of MongoDB make it a worthwhile installation candidate for RHEL 8 based distributions such as CentOS, Rocky, and AlmaLinux.

    Before we engage this post further, it is worth noting that the MongoDB database server release exists in two editions. We have the MongoDB Enterprise Server and the MongoDB Community Server (open source).
