The first Tizen phones may still be on the horizon, but at least one software provider is already planning ahead. Infraware Technology debuted software that can port Android apps to the Tizen mobile OS without additional development or customization. Both Android and Tizen are based on Linux, of course, but that doesn't mean their native apps are compatible.
The reasoning doesn't really matter. There's no reason that continued online support for these consoles should be at the whim of a company that obviously has no financial interest in them anymore. Nintendo and other console and game makers should take steps to release versions of their server code that allow players to run their own online infrastructure after the corporate servers are no longer available.
Rikomagic has spun a mini-PC version of its quad-core Cortex-A9 Rockchip RK3188-based MK802 stick computers that run Android or Ubuntu, starting at $105. The same week that Rockchip launched a new quad-core Cortex-A17 RK3288 system-on-chip, one of its earliest and most successful customers has eeked out some more life from the Cortex-A9 based RK3188.
Ubuntu GNOME (formerly Ubuntu GNOME Remix) is an official flavor of Ubuntu, featuring the GNOME desktop environment. It is intended as a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories.
Analysis IBM wants developers to build smartphone apps that use Big Blue's clever Jeopardy!-beating Watson software.
So Linux has a lot of games now, with plenty more still to come this year as it's early days yet, but I have decided to list a few you really need to keep an eye on. Since we post so much news nowadays I feel that it is a good time to reflect on what we have still yet to come, so you don't get lost in a sea of Linux games.
Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable.
A Debian port is now available for OpenRISC.
ADL debuted what may be the first PC/104-style SBC based on Intel’s Atom E3800 (Bay Trail-I) SoC, and featuring PCIe expansion, ruggedness, and lots of I/O. ADL Embedded Solutions is demonstrating the highly compact “ADLE3800PC” single-board computer at Embedded World in Nuremberg this week. The 90 x 96mm module is designed in accordance with the […]

Learn how to write simple, and increasingly complex, programs in the Linux shell.
Antivirus and anti-spam protection are the among the most important security features for a mail server. Unix/Linux based mail servers are typically invulnerable to malware and viruses, and there is a very slim chance that the server itself may get infected. On the other hand, the operating system of an end user device may not always be so secured. We certainly do not want our mail server to accept or distribute malware embedded emails. So setting up antivirus software on a mail server is a must. In this tutorial, we will be looking at how to secure our mail server by setting up Clam Antivirus, SpamAssassin and MailScanner.
I clearly understand that only incomplete Havana RDO setup allows me to activate spice USB redirection communicating with cloud instances. There is no dashboard ( Administrative Web Console ) on Cluster. All information regarding nova instances status, neutron subnets,routers,ports is supposed to be obtained via CLI as well as managing instances, subnets,routers,ports and rules is also supposed to be done via CLI, having carefully watch sourcing "keystonerc_user" file to manage in environment of particular user of particular tenant.
What is the point of .htaccess, anyway? It's just another cruel hoax to keep us scared and humble, isn't it. It may seem that way, and even the Apache devs consider it a form of near-magic. It relies on Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, so any rules you write for .htaccess are mostly punctuation...We're diving into Drupal 7 because it's a special case that needs more complex configuration. It's not well-documented, so hopefully this will help the hordes of frustrated Drupal 7 admins.
This is very interesting, Nothing To Hide is a game where you are your own watchdog, a game of anti-stealth and it looks pretty cool. Everything for it is in the public domain too!
Rockchip is the second chipmaker to jump on ARM’s recently announced Cortex-A17 processor design, after MediaTek’s octa-core MT6595 system-on-chip. This heir to the quad-core, Cortex-A9 RK3188, which fuels Android stick computers like the Rikomagic MK802IV and Ugoos UM2, was tipped at CES as being a Cortex-A12 processor. However, Rockchip instead converted the SoC to the similarly 32-bit Cortex-A17.
