Linux Foundation Puff Pieces and Leftovers

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 18:43
  • LF Networking Releases Compliance, Verification Testing

    Linux Foundation Networking (LFN) today released a compliance and testing tool that enables network operators to automate for validation requirements developed within the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP).

  • Open Networking Summit gets edgy in San Jose this week

    This week's ONS conference will feature new technology tracks, tutorials and keynotes from some of the biggest movers and shakers in the telecom industry.

  • OpenDaylight SDN Controller Marks 6 Years with 10th Release, Neon

    OpenDaylight, said to be the most pervasive open source software-defined networking controller in the industry, is out in its 10th release...

  • ELISA to Certify Safety Critical Linux-bases Systems Including Automotive Grade Linux

    Applications (ELISA) open source project to create a shared set of tools and processes to help companies build and certify Linux-based safety-critical applications and systems whose failure could result in loss of human life, significant property damage or environmental damage. Building off the work being done by SIL2LinuxMP project and Real-Time Linux project, ELISA will make it easier for companies to build safety-critical systems such as robotic devices, medical devices, smart factories, transportation systems and autonomous driving using Linux. Founding members of ELISA include Arm, BMW Car IT GmbH, KUKA, Linutronix, and Toyota.

  • CNCF Remains Focused as Cloud Native Interest Soars [Ed: Someone should research the connection between SDxCentral and the Linux Foundation -- seemingly a paid media partner, just like TheNewStack and others. LF became a little media empire serving its own ends. Silencing some.]

    The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) might not be the largest open source organization or even the largest group under the broader Linux Foundation umbrella, but it has been one of the fastest growing thanks to such hosted projects like Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Envoy.

  • A High-Level History of the Container Ecosystem, 2013-2019

    Here's a look at how the interests of the communities surrounding Docker have evolved and how priorities have shifted since Docker's release.

  • Explaining Kubernetes’ Popularity: It’s the Community, Not the Technology
  • SUSE Melds Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry Further
  • Pivotal Cloud Foundry 2.5 is Now GA
  • T-Mobile Uses Monarch for Controlled Chaos

    During a keynote demonstration of the Monarch chaos engineering tool, Ramesh Krishnaram, senior manager at T-Mobile US, said that the carrier’s work with Cloud Foundry was “easily the largest in the world.” Krishnaram noted that the carrier has more than 100 people on its Cloud Foundry engineering team overseeing more than 39,000 containers, supporting more than 3,000 mission-critical applications, and 700 million daily transactions.

  • MapR Embraces Kubernetes for Big Data
  • Cloud Native Buildpacks reach the beta stage

    Cloud Native Buildpacks, an open source technology inspired by Heroku and Cloud Foundry buildpacks and intended to unify the buildpack ecosystem, has moved to a public beta release stage. The Cloud Native Buildpacks project was begun by Heroku and Pivotal and later joined the Cloud Native Sandbox under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

    Buildpacks provide a higher level of abstraction for building container images than a Dockerfile, Docker’s native method. Cloud Native Buildpacks were designed to provide a platform-to-buildpack API contract that takes source code and outputs Docker images to run on cloud platforms supporting OCI (Open Container Initiative) images. Cloud Native Buildpacks take advantage of standard container capabilities such as cross-repository blob mounting and image layer rebasing on Docker v2 API registries.

  • Cloud Foundry loves Kubernetes

    Cloud Foundry, the open-source platform-as-a-service project that more than half of the Fortune 500 companies use to help them build, test and deploy their applications, launched well before Kubernetes existed. Because of this, the team ended up building Diego, its own container management service. Unsurprisingly, given the popularity of Kubernetes, which has become somewhat of the de facto standard for container orchestration, a number of companies in the Cloud Foundry ecosystem starting looking into how they could use Kubernetes to replace Diego.


    It’s worth noting that IBM today announced its own preview of Eirini in its Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment and that the latest version of SUSE’s Cloud Foundry-based Application Platform includes a similar preview as well.

  • AT&T's Fuetsch says AT&T now has internet white boxes in production [Ed: AT&T as keynote speaker because it gave money; it is a "bought" talk.]

    During his keynote, Fuetsch also said he was very proud of AT&T and Nokia contributing their seed code for O-RAN's 5G RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) into the Linux Foundation's O-RAN Open Source Community.

  • O-RAN ties the knot with the Linux Foundation

    The O-RAN Alliance cemented its collaboration with the Linux Foundation, by creating the O-RAN Software Community (O-RAN SC). As a new open source community hosted by the Linux Foundation, the O-RAN SC is sponsored by the O-RAN Alliance. Together, the two groups aim to develop an open and “smart” radio access network.

  • AT&T Aims to ‘Break the Vendor and Technology Lock-In’

    The initial seed code for the 5G RAN Intelligent Controller, which AT&T co-developed with Nokia, was contributed to the Linux Foundation in partnership with the O-RAN Alliance as open source software. “This is really the first open source project that we’re launching. There will be more down the road, but this is really the first step here in terms of opening up the radio access network,” Andre Fuetsch, president of AT&T Labs and CTO at AT&T, told SDxCentral.

  • O-RAN Alliance, Linux Foundation team on software

    The O-RAN Alliance and the Linux Foundation forged a new open-source software community they argued is essential to accelerate delivery of commercial 5G network infrastructure.

    In a joint statement, the groups said the O-RAN SC initiative “fosters collaboration with adjacent open source networking communities” and will deliver software aligned with the O-RAN Alliance’s open architecture at a time when “profound transformation” of the mobile industry “means it’s critical to make network infrastructure available as quickly as possible”.

    The target is open source software enabling modular, open, intelligent, efficient and agile disaggregated radio access networks (RAN).

    Initial software projects “may” include: near real time RAN intelligent controller; non-real time RAN intelligent controller; cloudification and virtualisation platforms; open central unit; open distributed unit; and a test and integration effort to provide a working reference implementation.

  • LVFS Could Be Hosting 10k+ Firmware Files By End Of 2019

    LVFS, the Linux Vendor Firmware Service, that pairs with Fwupd integration for offering firmware/BIOS updates to Linux users could be offering up more than ten thousand distinct firmware files before the end of the calendar year.

    Richard Hughes of Red Hat who has been leading Fwupd/LVFS development has been quite busy as of late. In addition to courting more hardware vendors, eyeing the enterprise, becoming a Linux Foundation project, and hitting a goal of serving more than 500,000 firmware files to Linux users in a single month, this year they are on a trajectory to be offering more than ten thousand different firmware files.

WireGuard Snapshot `0.0.20190406` Available

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 18:34

Hello, A new snapshot, `0.0.20190406`, has been tagged in the git repository. Please note that this snapshot is, like the rest of the project at this point in time, experimental, and does not constitute a real release that would be considered secure and bug-free. WireGuard is generally thought to be fairly stable, and most likely will not crash your computer (though it may). However, as this is a pre-release snapshot, it comes with no guarantees, and its security is not yet to be depended on; it is not applicable for CVEs. With all that said, if you'd like to test this snapshot out, there are a few relevant changes. == Changes == * allowedips: initialize list head when removing intermediate nodes Fix for an important regression in removing allowed IPs from the last snapshot. We have new test cases to catch these in the future as well. * wg-quick: freebsd: rebreak interface loopback, while fixing localhost * wg-quick: freebsd: export TMPDIR when restoring and don't make empty Two fixes for FreeBSD which have already been backported into ports. * tools: genkey: account for short reads of /dev/urandom * tools: add support for Haiku The tools now support Haiku! Maybe somebody is working on a WireGuard implementation for it? * tools: warn if an AllowedIP has a nonzero host part If you try to run `wg set wg0 peer ... allowed-ips`, wg(8) will now print a warning. Even though we mask this automatically down to, usually when people specify it like this, it's a mistake. * wg-quick: add 'strip' subcommand The new strip subcommand prints the config file to stdout after stripping it of all wg-quick-specific options. This enables tricks such as: `wg addconf $DEV <(wg-quick strip $DEV)`. * tools: avoid unneccessary next_peer assignments in sort_peers() Small C optimization the compiler was probably already doing. * peerlookup: rename from hashtables * allowedips: do not use __always_inline * device: use skb accessor functions where possible Suggested tweaks from Dave Miller. * qemu: set framewarn 1280 for 64bit and 1024 for 32bit These should indicate to us more clearly when we cross the most strict stack thresholds expected when using recent compilers with the kernel. * blake2s: simplify * blake2s: remove outlen parameter from final The blake2s implementation has been simplified, since we don't use any of the fancy tree hashing parameters or the like. We also no longer separate the output length at initialization time from the output length at finalization time. * global: the _bh variety of rcu helpers have been unified * compat: nf_nat_core.h was removed upstream * compat: backport skb_mark_not_on_list The usual assortment of compat fixes for Linux 5.1. This snapshot contains commits from: Jason A. Donenfeld, Luis Ressel, Samuel Neves, Bruno Wolff III, and Alexander von Gluck IV. As always, the source is available at https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard/ and information about the project is available at https://www.wireguard.com/ . This snapshot is available in compressed tarball form here: https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard/snapshot/WireGuard-0.0.20190406.tar.xz SHA2-256: 2f06f3adf70b95e74a7736a22dcf6e9ef623b311a15b7d55b5474e57c3d0415b BLAKE2b-256: 787a01fa3d6a800d7376a04ff57dd16d884a7d3cb99d2f91bfc59895ab759200 A PGP signature of that file decompressed is available here: https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard/snapshot/WireGuard-0.0.20190406.tar.asc Signing key: AB9942E6D4A4CFC3412620A749FC7012A5DE03AE If you're a snapshot package maintainer, please bump your package version. If you're a user, the WireGuard team welcomes any and all feedback on this latest snapshot. Finally, WireGuard development thrives on donations.

SUSE: SUSECON, 'Cloud' and Microsoft/HANA/SAP

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 18:13
  • Brauckmann upbeat at first SUSECON since independence

    SUSECON 2019 opens in Nashville, TN as CEO Nils Brauckmann lays out his vision for growth and the future in front of over 1000 attendees.

  • SUSE: A new mantra from edge to core to cloud

    Enterprise Linux company SUSE loves Linux, obviously.

    As Linux lives so prevalently and prolifically in the server rooms of so many cloud datacentres, the firm has worked to develop technologies designed to help those datacentres become software-defined.

    A software-defined datacentre being one that relies upon programmable elements of code that control, shape and manage many of the network actions that we might (perhaps 10-years ago, certainly 20-years ago) have relied upon dedicated highly specialised hardware for.

  • SUSE eyes wider horizons for enterprise open source

    The Computer Weekly Developer Network and Open Source Insider team is digging into four days of open source goodness at SUSECON.

    SUSE these days describes itself as a provider of enterprise-grade open source software-defined infrastructure and a set of application delivery tools.

    As SUSE regional director for EMEA West region Matt Eckersall has already told Computer Weekly, SUSECON is not just dedicated to SUSE enterprise-class Linux, the event also opens its focus to OpenStack, Ceph storage, Kubernetes, openATTIC, Cloud Foundry plus a range of other open source (and some proprietary) projects.

  • SUSE delivers first Linux image for SAP Hana large instances on Azure [Ed: SUSE proudly delivers proprietary software on an NSA surveillance platform maintained by Microsoft. SUSE refuses to evolve.]
  • Hitting Microsoft's metal: SUSE flings Enterprise Linux at SAP HANA on Azure [Ed: SUSE is still working for Microsoft (even after the Novell sellout of 2006)]

    SUSE modestly considers itself to be the "leading Linux platform" for SAP HANA and, while neither it nor Microsoft will be drawn on how many of the Linux instances on Azure have a green chameleon tinge to them, Daniel Nelson, vice president of Products and Solutions for SUSE, told El Reg: "We see it growing for us faster than market growth."

Xen vs. KVM in 2019 is a no brainer

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 17:05

The Xen vs. KVM debate was a staple in the open source virtualization space for years, but the conversation has mostly come to an end.

Back in 2014, many people were talking about whether to use Xen or KVM for virtualization. However, as of early 2019, it looks as if the battle is over and everybody is using KVM. So does that mean that Xen is dead or is there still some activity for the project?

What the new EU copyright law means for open source

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 16:52

The global open source community was able to breathe a small sigh of relief as the controversial and, at times, bitterly opposed European Union's (EU's) Copyright Directive was finally approved last week. Some last-minute amendments a few weeks before the vote resulted in open source software development being left relatively, but not wholly, unscathed.

In its earlier iterations, the EU copyright proposal, specifically Article 13, made content-sharing platforms directly liable for copyrighted content that users upload. This, in effect, made it mandatory for software code sharing platforms to monitor all content that users upload for potential copyright infringement. The proposal was primarily aimed at music and video streaming platforms rather than software code but the wording was so broad that software code, and developing and sharing platforms like GitHub, Software Heritage, GitLab, GNU Savannah and SourceForge, would be caught in the net.

With the whole premise of open source software being the free and open sharing of code, the open source community was appalled. Several campaigns were launched to push back. The Free Software Foundation Europe and OpenForumEurope joined forces on a campaign, Savecodeshare.eu, to garner support for opposition to the proposed directive.

How does open source tech transform Government?

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 14:28

Change has been slow, but cloud native technologies and modern open infrastructure is giving governments around the globe the tools they need to step into the digital era. Government agencies, much like large enterprise businesses, are transforming their culture and operations to embrace fundamental changes and foster digital transformation efforts.

In the United States, federal agencies are under a mandate to speed up cloud deployments to improve efficiency and better serve the public. Unfortunately, due to requirements that are unique to government agencies, this process can get bogged down for more than a year while developers navigate compliance issues.

18F, a digital consultancy formed within the U.S. government, realized that every agency was struggling with this issue and created cloud.gov. The open source cloud-based platform is a secure, fully compliant PaaS that helps federal agencies deliver services in a faster, more user-centric manner.

Gaming On Linux Keeps Getting Better With Proton

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 12:31

We’ve focused a fair bit on Linux gaming over the course of Techgage‘s life, but in recent years, we’ve been so distracted with other things that we haven’t dived in to see where things truly stand today. It’s also partly to blame that some games I’ve personally been playing lately still need Windows to run, so I’ve been out of luck on digging deep into Proton.

What is Proton? It’s Valve’s Wine-based solution for gaming on Linux, and it’s worth paying attention to. I was talking to a friend a couple of months ago who told me Proton support was “really good”, and after, I rushed home to give it a try, and I can honestly say, I am beyond impressed where things stand. To give an example of how far along Proton has come, Dirt Rally 2.0 worked under Linux on the day of its release, despite not being officially available outside of Windows.

Internet/WWW Software: Hugin 2019, Kiwi TCMS 6.7, Hugo Extended on CentOS 7, Curl Drops Pipelining

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 11:50
  • Hugin 2019 Released! How to Install it in Ubuntu 18.04/16.04
  • Hugin-2019.0.0 Release Notes
  • Kiwi TCMS 6.7

    We're happy to announce Kiwi TCMS version 6.7! This is a small improvement and bug-fix update.

  • Hugo Extended on CentOS 7
  • curl says bye bye to pipelining

    HTTP/1.1 Pipelining is the protocol feature where the client sends off a second HTTP/1.1 request already before the answer to the previous request has arrived (completely) from the server. It is defined in the original HTTP/1.1 spec and is a way to avoid waiting times. To reduce latency.

    HTTP/1.1 Pipelining was badly supported by curl for a long time in the sense that we had a series of known bugs and it was a fragile feature without enough tests. Also, pipelining is fairly tricky to debug due to the timing sensitivity so very often enabling debug outputs or similar completely changes the nature of the behavior and things are not reproducing anymore!

    HTTP pipelining was never enabled by default by the large desktop browsers due to all the issues with it, like broken server implementations and the likes. Both Firefox and Chrome dropped pipelining support entirely since a long time back now. curl did in fact over time become more and more lonely in supporting pipelining.

  • Review: Working Effectively with Legacy Code

    Suppose that you're familiar with the principles of good software design, you understand the importance of breaking complex code apart into simpler components, you know how to write good test suites, and you can structure new code to be maintainable. However, as is so often the case, your job is not to write green-field code. It's to add or change some behavior of an existing system, and that existing system was written with complete disregard to (or prior to the widespread development of) all of those principles. How do you start?

    That's the core topic of this somewhat deceptively titled book. The title arguably overpromises, since there are many aspects of working with legacy code that are not covered in this book (and couldn't be covered in any one book). Feathers further narrows the topic with a rather idiosyncratic definition of legacy: code without unit tests. The point of the techniques discussed here is to restructure the piece of code that you want to modify so that you can add tests (and, specifically, unit tests; Feathers barely mentions the existence of integration tests).

  • Parsing PHP for fun and profit

    Recently I've been dealing with a lot of PHP code, and coders. I'm still not a huge fan of the language, but at the same time modern PHP is a world apart from legacy PHP which I dismissed 10ish years ago.

    I've noticed a lot of the coders have had a good habit of documenting their code, but also consistently failing to keep class-names up to date.

DXVK 1.1 Released

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 11:41
  • DXVK, the Vulkan-based layer for Direct3D 10/11 in Wine has a major 1.1 release out now

    DXVK, the awesome project that has helped push Linux gaming further has a new release out and it sounds pretty huge.

    Firstly, for Unreal Engine 4 titles (and several other unnamed games) DXVK 1.1 has "Queries" re-implemented which should allow for improved GPU utilization. The feature is widely used apparently, so it may help quite a number of games. DXVK also now comes with basic support for Predication based on the new query stuffs.

    Another major difference is that DXVK 1.1 uses "in-memory compression for shader code", which should result in games with a large number of shaders seeing reduced memory utilization. However, it may increase shader compile times "slightly". Games noted to benefit include Overwatch, Quake Champions and Dishonored 2 seeing "several hundred Megabytes of RAM" savings.

  • DXVK 1.1 Released With Vulkan Queries Work, Other Improvements

    DXVK 1.1 is out this weekend in time for some weekend Linux game testing. This library, which is used for implementing Direct3D 10/11 over Vulkan for the benefit of Windows games running on Linux under Wine/Proton (Steam Play), has new abilities and performance enhancements with today's update.

    DXVK 1.1 has performance improvements around Unreal Engine 4 games and other titles thanks to better GPU utilization via Vulkan queries. To benefit, systems need Wine 4.5+ or Proton 4.2+ and be running the NVIDIA 418.49.4 driver or Mesa 19.1-devel Git. There is also initial and basic support for predication via VK_EXT_conditional_rendering.

Games: The European Commission on Valve, VR Headsets, and More Games for GNU/Linux

Ned, 04/07/2019 - 11:39
  • The EU Is Pissed at Steam for Region-Locking Games

    The European Commission alleges that Valve and publishers Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media, and ZeniMax agreed to region-lock activation keys for games to prevent cross-border sales within the European Union. The Commission also alleges that the publishers prevented distributors from selling games outside of set regions.

    According to the Statements of Objections, as the Commission’s letters are known, “This may have prevented consumers from buying cheaper games available in other Member States,” or buying games at all.

  • Valve have confirmed Linux support for their Valve Index VR headset, pre-orders on May 1st
