Linux: Reiser4 and the Mainline Kernel

Hans Reiser [interview] sent an email to thelkml titled, "I request inclusion of reiser4 in the mainline kernel". He provided a list of objections raised earlier, noting that all had been addressed. Among the listed issues, Reiser4 now works with 4k stacks. "There have been no bug reports concerning the new code," Hans added.

The request was followed with some suggestions by Christoph Hellwig, including general comments about the coding style. This was one of many issues that led to debate in which Hans commented, "most of my customers remark that Namesys code is head and shoulders above the rest of the kernel code. So yes, it is different." Alan Cox [interview] replied that while the kernel coding style isn't his own style, he tries to follow it when working on the kernel, "one big reason we jump up and down so much about the coding style is that its the one thing that ensures someone else can maintain and fix code that the author has abandoned, doesn't have time to fix or that needs access to specific hardware the authors may not have." Much of the rest of the thread was less friendly, leaving the question of merging Reiser4 into the mainline kernel still up in the air.

Welcome to this year's 38th issue of DistroWatch Weekly. The major news of the past week was, of course, the release of Slackware Linux 10.2 - a distribution with a clear focus on simplicity, stability and reliability. Next on the release calendar: Mandriva Linux 2006 - with the second release candidate announced last week, we can't be too far off from the final release. Also in this issue: an explanation about the delay of KNOPPIX 4.0 CD edition, news about a live CD that uses Xen to boot a host operating system, and two free learning resources - one for OpenBSD and one for Linux. We also take a brief look at a new book for Xandros users - Linux Made Easy. Happy reading!

CLI Magic: CDargs

Typing long path names at the command line can get to be a chore very quickly. Even with tab-completion, it can take a lot of typing to move from your home directory to /var/www/ or something similar. Wouldn't it be much better if you could "bookmark" long path names and type something simple, like cdb site, to get to a directory? That's where CDargs comes in. CDargs is a program that provides bookmarks and browsing at the command line. It takes a little work to set up, but it's well worth it. I've been using this program for a few years now, and it really does help speed up work at the shell.

New Notes shows IBM 'is serious'

  • ComputerWorld; By Randal Jackson and John Fontana (Posted by tadelste on Sep 18, 2005 6:29 PM EDT)
New administration features include a Linux-based Web Administration client and tighter integration with Web services standards, as well as back-end hooks to IBM’s DB2, WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Portal. DB2 is an option that offers much faster processing because it is a relational database and Notes is not. IBM estimates the new release will allow many customers to run up to 50% more users per server, requiring up to 25% less capacity for the same workload.

Microsoft looks to spread authentication technology to Firefox ...

Looking to ease the way customers manage their digital identities, Microsoft has begun working to integrate its InfoCard authentication technology with Internet Explorer and is in discussions with the Firefox and Safari browser developers to have them include the technology on their platforms. According to Microsoft officials, InfoCard integration could show up in Internet Explorer 7.0 even though InfoCard is currently not on the feature list. The goal is to improve security and privacy on the Internet using the InfoCard model, which puts users in control of their personal identity information and would eliminate the need for user names and passwords to sign into a Web site. "We are still working on if there is enough time to get this done" for Internet Explorer 7, says Michael Stephenson, Microsoft's group product manager for Windows Server. "We expect many different applications, smart apps, Web apps and browsers, to use InfoCard. Our own browser will take advantage of it."

Tax collects Linux for open source analytics

  • Story Type: News Story
Despite its strong ties to proprietary software vendors, the Australian Taxation Office has finally dipped its toes into open source by establishing a Linux-based system for information analytics. Tax has had a Teradata warehouse for 10 years but the change program initiated by chief knowledge officer Philip Hind in November last year is a "series of activities to enhance the ATO's ability to collect and analyse data", assistant commissioner of information management John Body told Computerworld. As a result the ATO invested in Teradata's Warehouse Miner, SAS Enterprise Miner, and hired CSIRO's principal computer scientist for enterprise data mining Dr Graham Williams who pioneered open source analytics for organizations like the Health Insurance Commission and NRMA.
