Open source users: It’s time for extreme vetting

LXer - Thu, 2017-02-09 09:40
Open source software is the norm these days rather than the exception. The code is being written in high volumes and turning up in critical applications. While having this code available can offer big benefits, users also must be wary of issues the code can present and implement proper vetting. Josh Bressers, cybersecurity strategist at Red Hat, emphasized this point during a recent interview.

Network diagram tool that supports interface labels?

Reddit - Thu, 2017-02-09 09:23

Which linux-based graphics tool do you use to draw network topologies where you want to show interface/port labels?

I'm looking for a tool where I can put text labels for the interfaces. Something like this: https://packetpushers.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Example-network2.jpg

Preferably, it should also be possible to group objects, for instance a switch, all of it's interface labels and interface connections/cables, so that you can drag it around and all related objects will follow it.

I don't want to use Visio or something web-based but something Linux based.

Linux Home Server

Reddit - Thu, 2017-02-09 06:52

Hey guys, I've been looking to build a personal linux server for some time now. The main use is going to be a web server, GitLab host and FTP server. Possibly with some mail server running later, and some VM's for some testing.

Specs are:
- HP Xeon 12-core 2.2GHz CPU
- 24GB RAM
- Quadro FX3700 GFX
- 240GB x 3
- 500GB x 1

I got the computer off a buddy of mine. It's pretty beefy I know. I'm a computer systems student in my 3rd year of my degree. I know my way around a computer for the most part, but just want some extra input.

I've been doing a lot of searching online and I had centOS 7 on it before. Couldn't get it working and it's just been a pain. I figured here might have some ideas and some input as to what I should do. All comments are welcome and I will be checking frequently. Hope you guys have some good ideas!

This is more of an open discussion and question rather than pure help. I know how to do most of the work, I would just like some input and a discussion on what to do as a whole, and maybe some past input and stuff from other users

Bixby AI assistant to support up to 8 languages, further benefiting Tizen ecosystem

TuxMachines - Thu, 2017-02-09 03:06

We are excited about the possibilities that Samsung’s new Artificial Intelligence (AI) virtual assistant, named Bixby, will bring to Samsung devices. The latest news today is that Bixby will support for up to 8 languages at launch, which will include English, Korean and Chinese.

Samsung acquired Viv Labs with the sole purpose of building a new and powerful virtual assistant that rivals those offered by its competitor’s. The first device to support Bixby will be the Samsung S8 and we are hoping soon thereafter it will be the next Tizen smartphone, which will be released later this year. This should help raise the profile of Tizen in the smartphone world and offer consumers another reason to choose Tizen.
