Longtime Debian Developer Tollef Fog Heen Resigns From Systemd Maintainer Team

Linux Slashdot - Sun, 16/11/2014 - 21:51
An anonymous reader writes Debian developer Tollef Fog Heen submitted his resignation to the Debian Systemd package maintainers team mailing list today (Sun. Nov. 16th, 2014). In his brief post, he praises the team, but claims that he cannot continue to contribute due to the "load of continued attacks...becoming just too much." Presumably, he is referring to the heated and, at times, even vitriolic criticism of Debian's adoption of Systemd as the default init system for its upcoming Jessie release from commenters inside and outside of the Debian community. Currently, it is not known if Tollef will cease contributing to Debian altogether. A message from his twitter feed indicates that he may blog about his departure in the near future.

Open Source Self-Healing Software For Virtual Machines

Linux Slashdot - Sun, 16/11/2014 - 18:46
An anonymous reader writes Computer scientists have developed Linux based software that not only detects and eradicates never-before-seen viruses and other malware, but also automatically repairs damage caused by them. If a virus or attack stops the service, A3 could repair it in minutes without having to take the servers down. The software then prevents the invader from ever infecting the computer again. "It's pretty cool when you can pick the Bug of the Week and it works." (Here's a paper with more details.)

Linux Format 191 - Hack the Pi!

Tux Radar - Thu, 13/11/2014 - 15:40
Issue 191, December 2014 - on sale now Hack the Pi!

We’re exploring how you can hack Linux on the Pi to ever greater levels with fun projects, advanced Linux services and essential skills. We hope you’ve brought your Pi with you. Not that we want to obsess on the Pi too much, even if it’s a great device that’s changing the world, a big part of that success is its Linux smarts.

We’re finishing our Nginx series, (which also happens to all work with the Raspberry Pi) but we’re also going deep into Cython to accelerate everyday Python, exploring how to use Git for your own projects and look at how you can get started developing PHP. We’re also trying to stay musical with a roundup of excellent players and even pro-level production.


On the DVD: Raspbian, KaliLinux 1.0.9, PiMusicBox, RetroPie, Jasper.
