A recent string of patches posted to the lkml attempted to clean up compiler warnings, and lead to numerous discussions about the appropriate way to fix warnings. One thread discussed a warning caused by what the compiler inappropriately believed was an unitialized variable, to which Alan Cox replied, "hiding warnings like this can be a hazard as it will hide real warnings later on." He went on to suggest the warning was a good thing as it encourages developers to continue to review the code, "while the warning is present people will check it now and again."
All these years with Linux and the stable LAMP platform and still no one has invented a barcode inventory web app for IT departments?
Koan Software has certified a BSP (board support package) based on its GPL-only industrial embedded Linux distribution with an ARM-based half Euroboard SBC (single board computer) from Taskit. Klinux (formerly K-Linux) supports the Portux920T, based on an Atmel AT91RM9200 with a 180 MHz ARM-920T core.
uCertify, a premier IT certification exam preparation tools provider, announces the release of its upgraded Exam Simulation PrepKit for CompTIA’s Linux+ certification exam (XK0-002).
An interview with people from the PC-BSD development team after the recent release of the first stable version 1.0. The guys talk about their pre-release journey, features unique to PC-BSD and where the project goes from here.
Linux offers a number of file systems. This paper discusses these file systems, why there are so many, and which ones are the best to use for which workloads and data. Not all data is the same. Not all workloads are the same. Not all filesystems are the same. Matching the file system to the data and workload allows customers to build efficient scalable and cost effective solutions.
Draft GNU GPLv3 (General Public License) language would require embedded systems and devices incorporating GPLv3-licensed software to be user-modifiable, stated license author Richard Stallman in a recent speech. The draft license's "anti-TiVo-isation" rider drew criticism early on from Linus Torvalds, who called it "insane." Where do LinuxDevices readers stand?
Until AMD undermined Intel's PC hegemony, most designers believed faster processors had to eat more power and create more heat. Since then, the industry has aimed to reduce power and cooling costs, while continuing to build ever more powerful processors. And a tiny startup is applying the mobius loop concept in an innovative way to assure that more powerful, less power-hungry processors keep coming
My name is Henry the Adequate, and I am a superhero computer guru person.
A year ago, I reviewed Ututo-e, an Argentinian distribution based on Gentoo. Ututo-e is known mainly as the only GNU/Linux distribution endorsed by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation (FSF). This endorsement is based on the fact that Ututo-e, in the words of Peter Brown of the FSF, "makes a commitment to follow the philosophy of the FSF as to what makes a distribution ethically free software." Last year, this endorsement seemed premature, because Ututo-e, while promising in some places, was buggy in many more. A year later, the 2006 release of Ututo XS is more polished, especially in its desktop and selection of administration tools, but its English version still falls below the standard of leading distributions such as Debian or Fedora Core.

GPLv3 will likely be adopted for Linux kernel, according to luminary Bruce Perens (pictured at left). "It's a negotiation... I'm expecting the embedded manufacturers and the Free Software Foundation and Linus to get the license to a point they can all live with," Perens says.
The Internet is a wild and unruly place. When people talk about Internet governance, the conversation is normally related to IP allocation and domain name management, rather than censorship or control. The Internet actually is tightly managed with regards to network allocation. This edition of Networking 101 will clear up those mysterious organizational acronyms and explain what their purpose really is.
As the Free Software Foundation (FSF) works toward finalizing the next version of the GNU General Public License (GPL), free software developers are still trying to make sure companies are complying with the current version of the GPL.
It's not my goal at this blog to nominate myself as the official FUD Ombudsman for the contest between the ODF standard and Microsoft's Open XML (especially since the connotations of the name "Ombudsman" in this saga ain't what they used to be). But...
As our fetish for monitoring tools begins to subside, we realize that one of the neatest monitoring tools available has nearly been forgotten. Cacti is “a complete frontend to RRDTool,” as they say, which makes SNMP and script-based monitoring very worthwhile. In this article we’d like to talk a bit about Cacti and how it can be used to create some excitingly useful graphs of various data
"Public Relations" is one of those funny phrases that has very little to do with what it really means. At sixty thousand feet, it's about influencing opinion, which (at that altitude) doesn't sound all that bad. But when it gets down into the bushes, it starts to become a bit less innocuous, and more unsavory.
For those who believe this way…for those who think that our differences can be settled at the Alter of Port 25 and those sincere friends with only our best interests at heart… Misconceive this.
The custom designed M210 is a powerful smart box that relays content and display management information wirelessly and plays back video content stored in its built-in hard disk. It enables location owners and operators to deploy a full digital signage system to pinpoint audiences with targeted content such as advertising and promotions, without the hassles of wiring or laying cables.
