I hope this is the right subreddit for this. I have a ThinkPad T430S that I would really like to flash with Coreboot, but it has a WSON-8 layout for the BIOS chip that I am unsure how to remove and dump the FW from.
I've heard people will volunteer to actually flash Coreboot on some systems during these events and was hoping to find some help, but this will be my first time attending.

HPE and SUSE, a top Linux distributor, have a complex relationship. First, HPE spun and merged its non-core software assets with Micro Focus. Micro Focus owns SUSE, a major Linux provider. Now, SUSE has finished acquiring cloud assets of HPE's OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Stackato, HPE's Cloud Foundry implementation.
As usual, the week after rc1 tends to be fairly quiet when people are
still looking for bugs and taking a breather after the merge window.
But we've got a healthy number of fixes in, and there's some
cleanup/prep patches for the upcoming 5-level page table support that
I took after the merge window just to make the next merge window
I have a domain - example.co and I'd love to set up an email server so I can get mail at that address (e.g. email@example.com)
Furthermore, I'd love to have it set up where it forwards email to another account so I can manage all my email in a centralize location (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
Is there a simple mail server that y'all could recommend for a newbie who hasn't done much of this stuff before? I'm assuming even basic mail servers nowadays come with things like spam filters out of the box.
I'm running Ubuntu specifically if that matters.
Thank you!submitted by /u/UnderwaterPenguin

OK, you're probably thinking "WHY? There are plenty of perfectly good GUI calculators for Linux. Why build another one?" And my answer is "Because the available calculators are way too powerful and don't do what I want on-screen."
I manage my screen's real estate pretty carefully. I run Debian Xfce, and the screenshot below shows a typical workspace on my 1920 x 1080 px monitor. Applications (like the GIMP screen pictured) open maximised, but are restricted in size and position because I've set my workspace margins to left 10 px, bottom 10 px, top 60 px and right 400 px. The top margin leaves room for the 50 px panel at top right, and the right margin leaves plenty of room for me to read the keyboard shortcuts I've written on the desktop background image.
Google’s “Summer of Code” (GSoC) will be happening for the thirtheenth time this year, and the KDE project is yet again one of the 201 participating open source organizations. The project’s list of ideas students may tackle has currently grown to 54 entries.
In March, the Swift programming language rose to became the 10th most popular, at least by the measure of TIOBE Software.
Open-sourced by Apple in 2015, Swift has been touted as an appealing alternative to better-established programming languages because of its safety, speed, and approachable syntax. It combines modern language features like garbage collection and type safety with readability, not to mention decent documentation.
Swift is also ranked 10 in the PYPL Index, which derives its data from Google Trends. RedMonk's ranking from 2016 shows Swift a bit further back in the pack.
Swift also happens to top GitHub's list of programming languages being actively developed on the site (which of course omits development activity elsewhere).
CentOS 7 is a free enterprise-class community supported Linux OS derived from RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) sources and designed to provide compatibility with RHEL. That is, CentOS aims to provide a free community-supported alternative to paid subscription service of RHEL. Let us take a look at the latest iteration to this very popular Linux distro, CentOS 7.
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is now accepting donations to support the GNU Toolchain, a collection of foundational freely licensed software development tools. Many pieces of software depend upon the GNU Toolchain, including the GNU/Linux family of operating systems which runs the majority of Web servers, millions of personal devices and the most advanced supercomputers.
For those curious, here is how much various open-source projects have in the bank.
SPI Inc, Software in the Public Interest, is the non-profit organization serving as the organizational steward for many open-source projects from Arch Linux and Debian to recently X.Org. SPI Inc also manages the finances for smaller projects like Drizzle, GNUstep, YafaRay, HeliOS, Fluxbox, and many others. Those that somehow never heard of SPI Inc can learn more about their efforts via SPI-Inc.org.
A few hours ago, DragonFlyBSD 4.8 RC was tagged. This is a significant update with the changes to DragonFly since the 4.6 release last August. DragonFly in this time has seen improved UEFI installation support, NUMA-awareness and memory changes, updated DRM graphics driver code, expanded LibreSSL support, dropped PulseAudio, and many other changes.
Intel is going to more actively engage with the FreeBSD project and they've also made a hefty donation to the FreeBSD Foundation.

Every time I attempt to install Linux Mint I get the error message, "The 'grub-efi' package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot."
I don't fully understand how my drives work tbh. I originally had an HDD with Windows 7. I later added an SSD and began booting off of that and upgraded to Windows 10 on it
Now I'm trying to boot Linux Mint on that SSD. Windows Boot Manager is on my HDD as well as Windows 7 still I believe. I partitioned 20GB for Root, 16GB for Swap and 30GB for Home on my SSD. Those are what I used when installing Linux Mint. I get up to the last part of the installation process and receive the error message. Not sure how to proceedsubmitted by /u/hendawg98
