Red Hat and CentOS Fix Kernel Bug in Latest OS Versions, Urge Users to Update

TuxMachines - Wed, 2018-07-18 18:47

It would appear the there was a bug in the previous Linux kernel update for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5 and CentOS Linux 7.5 releases, which was released to address the Spectre V4 security vulnerability, making connection tracking information to not function correctly, which could lead to connectivity loss and leaking of configuration properties related to the respective connection tracking into other namespaces.

"Previously, the connection tracking information was not cleared properly for packets forwarded to another network namespace," said Red Hat in an advisory. "Packets that were marked with the "NOTRACK" target in one namespace were excluded from connection tracking even in the new namespace. Consequently, a loss of connectivity occasionally occurred, depending on the packet filtering ruleset of the other network namespaces."

Greg Kroah-Hartman on Linux, Security, and Making Connections at Open Source Summit

TuxMachines - Wed, 2018-07-18 18:40

People might not think about the Linux kernel all that much when talking about containers, serverless, and other hot technologies, but none of them would be possible without Linux as a solid base to build on, says Greg Kroah-Hartman. He should know. Kroah-Hartman maintains the stable branch of the Linux kernel along with several subsystems. He is also co-author of the Linux Kernel Development Report, a Fellow at The Linux Foundation, and he serves on the program committee for Open Source Summit.

In this article, we talk with Kroah-Hartman about his long involvement with Linux, the importance of community interaction, and the upcoming Open Source Summit.

Buy Dell XPS with Linux from a reseller or in person

Reddit - Wed, 2018-07-18 17:31

I'm unable to buy an XPS 13 with Linux from Dell's site, the order gets canceled every time due to "credit card verification issues", I call their off-shore support who tell me to do this or that but nothing has worked. My card works everywhere else, though, so I was wondering if there's anywhere else I can buy the latest XPS 13 (non-touch, i7, 16 GB, 512 GiB HD) with Linux. Dell sells the XPS through Amazon, but only Windows (I'll be reinstalling either way, but that's not the point).

Is there anywhere else I'm missing online where I can buy it? Or does anyone know a computer shop in NYC where I could buy one in person?
