Why the open source community needs a diverse supply chain

At this year's Opensource.com Community Moderator's meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst made a comment that stuck with me. "Open source's supply chain is source code," he said, "and the people making up that supply chain aren't very diverse." Diversity and inclusivity in the technology industry—and in open source communities more specifically—have received a lot of coverage, both on Opensource.com and elsewhere. One approach to the issue foregrounds arguments about concepts that are more abstract—like human decency, for example. read more

Banana Backups

Even though the modern Raspberry Pi 3 has a faster CPU, the old Banana Pi still beats it on network and disk I/O. This makes it pretty ideal as a standalone system for home network backups, depending on your needs.

  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups: Linux
The much awaited release of Ubuntu 17.10 and its shift from Unity to Gnome has got both positive and negative reviews. But it is important to note that when Ubuntu left Gnome, it was Gnome 2. Supported by a group of FOSS enthusiasts Gnome 2 lives as Mate today. Also, Mate is one of the officially supported flavors of Ubuntu. So here is LinuxAndUbuntu’s review of the Ubuntu Mate 17.10.?

7 tools for analyzing performance in Linux with bcc/BPF

A new technology has arrived in Linux that can provide sysadmins and developers with a large number of new tools and dashboards for performance analysis and troubleshooting. It's called the enhanced Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF, or just BPF), although these enhancements weren't developed in Berkeley, they operate on much more than just packets, and they do much more than just filtering. I'll discuss one way to use BPF on the Fedora and Red Hat family of Linux distributions, demonstrating on Fedora 26. read more

You are probably also aware of xargs as well as the find command. Our trusty friend locate can also play nicely with the --null option of xargs by outputting all of the results onto one line (without spaces which isn’t great if you want to read it yourself) by using the -0 switch like this:

  • Groups: Apache; Story Type: News Story
This tutorial describes how to implement a modern learning to rank (LTR, also called machine-learned ranking) system in Apache Solr. It's intended for people who have zero Solr experience, but who are comfortable with machine learning and information retrieval concepts. I was one of those people only a couple of months ago, and I found it extremely challenging to get up and running with the Solr materials I found online. read more

Font licensing and use: What you need to know

  • Opensource.com (Posted by bob on Nov 21, 2017 5:43 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
Most of us have dozens of fonts installed on our computers, and countless others are available for download, but I suspect that most people, like me, use fonts unconsciously. I just open up LibreOffice or Scribus and use the defaults. Sometimes, however, we need a font for a specific purpose, and we need to decide which one is right for our project. read more

How to organize your passwords using pass password manager

If you have the good habit to never use the same password for more than one purpose, you have probably already felt the need for a password manager. There are many alternatives to choose from on linux, both proprietary (if you dare) and open source. If you, like me, think that simplicity it's the way to go, you may be interested in knowing however to use the pass utility.

LVFS makes Linux firmware updates easier

Traditionally, updating a BIOS or a network card's firmware in Linux meant booting into Microsoft Windows or preparing a MS-DOS floppy disk and hoping everything would work correctly after the update. Periodically searching a vendor website for updates is a manual and error-prone task and not something we should ask users to do. A firmware update service makes it simpler for end users to implement hardware updates.
