So rumours and code released by google would suggest that google would replace the monolitic kernel Linux with a microkernel because it would be easier to update and more performant.
I have a hard te believing this, the linux kernel is the basic of what google did these last years, ditching it would seem weird.
Do you think it is true ?submitted by /u/EizanPrime
First off, let me know if this is the wrong place to post this.
Here's the situation:
If I run HandBrakeCLI -i /media/cdrom -o "name.mkv" I just get a small file (0.5 MB) which is a message asking not to copy the DVD. (All I want to do is play the DVD which I bought, I just don't have a CD/DVD drive at home, so I need to rip it first).
Any ideas how to make HandBrake use the libdvdcss library to get past the copy protection?submitted by /u/TheSolidState
Over the past week I have been dealing with nothing but issues with ubuntu. I had the distro on my laptop for awhile and figured I would install 16.04 onto my newly built pc. The first week was great on the pc. It ran amazingly but then came this week. I went to restart my pc as I would usually do but then couldn't sign in through the disk encryption... A box on top left pops up and all text I type goes there. I'm trying to figure this out and took hours. Then I learned there was no way to fix it. I gave up, deleted everything and restart from scratch. This time though without the encryption. I figured ok maybe I can try out 16.10 and enable the encryption. I load up the live boot and my mouse wont work!!! I look up the issue and there it is. They all say the same thing and that is you can't fix it. Now I'm sitting here with my now installed 16.10 ubuntu on my new and first built pc with a mouse that won't move. The mouse works perfectly fine. It's ubuntu that's the problem. I don't want windows and want to run ubuntu but all its been for me right now is hell.

At the Open Source Leadership Summit in Tahoe today, the Linux Foundation and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) announced a free new online course for event speakers.

I got news about Ubuntu Studio in 2007, and moved to it. As a musician and sound technician, I had used a digital Portastudio to record and mix because I enjoyed turning actual knobs when mixing. I used Ubuntu Studio for mastering in Audacity before I had the chance to upgrade all my studio equipment with a new laptop and sound card in 2010. I did a lot of research to get the best USB sound card and compatible laptop for recording. I was quite sad when I realized that even though it looked good on paper, everything didn't quite work well in reality. I could only get the card work on 16 bit in Linux, but in Windows it would record with 24 bit and 96 KHz. I felt frustrated, I was back to a dual boot life.
Then Ubuntu Studio 12.10 was released and my sound card and laptop finally played nicely together. What a joy! However, much had changed in my life with family and work, and I wouldn't be doing much recording at home for quite some time. Instead I found out I could contribute to open source without being a programmer, which had never occurred to me before. Because I had so much joy and benefit from open source I wanted to give something back. I had participated in the Ubuntu Forums for a while and reached out to the Ubuntu Studio team.
For a few years, I would contribute when I could with the little time I had available between family, work, sleep, and all the other things I wanted to dabble within the 24 hours available each day.
We already had confirmation that Torment: Tides of Numenera [Official Site] would launch day-1 on Linux here on GOL from an email chat with inXile, but it's always good to see fully public confirmation.
Entering my mailbox recently was 'Holobunnies: Pause Café' [Steam], a two-player co-op brawler that will have full Linux support and it looks pretty good!
Epic Games announced the release this morning of Unreal Engine 4.15.
Tested for this Radeon cross-OS comparison was a Radeon RX 480 and R9 Fury graphics cards. Under Windows 10 Pro x64 the latest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.1.2 driver release was used for testing. On the Linux side with Ubuntu 16.10 x86_64 the only option is using the open-source driver stack. The latest RadeonSI/RADV driver stack was tested via the Linux 4.10 Git kernel and Mesa 17.1-dev Git (built with LLVM 5.0 SVN, via the Padoka PPA) using these latest Git components as of the end of this past weekend.
The developers of Eternum [Greenlight Page] emailed in to let us know that their pretty good looking platformer will have Linux support. They are looking to get some Steam Greenlight votes, so if you like the look of it be sure to show your support.
Samsung has launched a new, Fedora Linux ready Artik 530 COM and development kit, which unlike the dual -Cortex-A7 Artik 520, moves to a quad-core -A9 SoC.
Hey new Linux users, you may be wondering that which Linux distro to choose after seeing so many distros based on Linux
Hey new Linux users, you may be wondering that which Linux distro to choose after seeing so many distros based on Linux. Most of you might be switching from windows to Linux and want those distros which are easy and simple, resemble like windows. So today I will cover those Linux distros whose Desktop Environment is much similar to windows, so let’s start.
People are using github to code together. Good! But as anyone knows, programs in its infancy have lots of security holes. One of those is often, that you punch in a clear text password. I.e. for a database.
In open source projects, that is a danger in itself, usually not hard to find.
But it gets easier to find when people finally remove their passwords from the code and want to be good guys, naming their commits accuratly, similar to "removed password", thus announcing to the world there might be something interesting:
A simple search on https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=&type=Commits&ref=searchresults shows how often this is being done. This particular search has been called a lot in the recent days and people are actively contacting developers to be aware of it. There are a lot more places than github!
Don't hardcode passwords!
