    Brunch with Brent: Quentin Stafford-Fraser - Jupiter Extras — Brent sits down with Dr Quentin Stafford-Fraser, computer scientist, serial-entrepreneur, inventor (perhaps) of the webcam, Augmented Reality Ph.D. who ran the very first web server at the University of Cambridge, among much more. We explore topics including computer science as an art-form, the origins of the Raspberry Pi and T9 predictive text, philosophies around innovation and invention, challenging the patent system, and more.JB London MeetupDNS Toys — A DNS server that takes creative liberties with the DNS protocol to offer handy utilities and services that are easily accessible via the command line.Mars helicopter needs patch to work around failed sensor — The patch inserts a small code snippet into the software running on Ingenuity's flight computer, intercepting incoming garbage packets from the inclinometer and injecting replacement packets constructed from IMU data.Software upgrades help Mars helicopter keep flyingUmbrel 0.5 — Umbrel 0.5 brings the very first redesign of Umbrel’s UI since we launched. We went back to the drawing board to design a completely new homepage, a refreshed UI with beautifully crafted glass-like elements, a new dock-based layout, and the option to pick and choose from one of the 16 gorgeous, hand-curated wallpapers. And, of course, there’s a dark mode.Dr Quentin Stafford-Fraser's Website — I’m a computer scientist, entrepreneur, part-time academic and full-time gadget enthusiast based in Cambridge, England.Quentin Stafford-Fraser's BlogJellyfin 10.8.0 has been released!Jellyfin Release v10.8.0 — After a rather long development cycle the Jellyfin team is proud to announce stable version 10.8!

    London Meetup — Sat, Aug 6, 2022, 2:00 PM GMTNewest Version of Systemd Includes Experimental Feature for A/B-Style Updating — "Let's popularize image-based OSes," writes Lennart Poettering, "with modernized security properties built around immutability, SecureBoot, TPM2, adaptability, auto-updating, factory reset, uniformity — built from traditional distribution packages, but deployed via images."Fitting Everything Together — In this blog story I hope to provide that from my personal perspective, i.e. explain how I personally would build an OS and where I personally think OS development with Linux should go.systemd-sysupdate — This tool implements file, directory, or partition based update schemes, supporting multiple parallel installed versions of specific resources in an A/B (or even: A/B/C, A/B/C/D/, …) style. A/B updating means that when one version of a resource is currently being used, the next version can be downloaded, unpacked, and prepared in an entirely separate location, independently of the first, and — once complete — be activated, swapping the roles so that it becomes the used one and the previously used one becomes the one that is replaced by the next update, and so on.Thoughts on software-defined silicon — The benefits to Intel are clear. The company can do price differentiation among its customers in an attempt to extract the maximum revenue from each while simultaneously reducing the number of different hardware products it must carry in its catalog. The revenue stream from a processor will not necessarily stop once the CPU is purchased, and might continue indefinitely. The benefit for customers is not quite so clear. In theory, customers with minimal needs can avoid paying for expensive features they don't use and can "upgrade" their hardware without downtime if their needs change.platform/x86: Add Intel Software Defined Silicon driver — Intel Software Defined Silicon (SDSi) is a post manufacturing mechanism for activating additional silicon features. Features are enabled through a license activation process. The SDSi driver provides a per socket, sysfs attribute interface for applications to perform 3 main provisioning functions.Boost without Switching Podcast Apps with BreezNew Podcast AppsPick: Mainline — A tool for installing the latest Linux kernels on Ubuntu-based distributions.

    London Meetup — Alex from Self-Hosted will be in the UK in August and is proposing a meetup in London on August 6th at 2pm GMT (meetup.com is based off JBs Pacific Time).HP Dev One — Get ready for a laptop that’s customized for the way you code. Featuring preinstalled Pop!_OS Linux and a tuned Linux keyboard with a Super key, HP Dev One was designed with developers in mind.HP Preparing An AMD-Powered Linux Laptop Powered By Pop!_OSHP teamed up with System76 for the HP Dev One laptop with Pop!_OS LinuxBringing bcachefs to the mainline — Bcachefs is a longstanding out-of-tree filesystem that grew out of the bcache caching layer that has been in the kernel for nearly ten years. Based on a session led by Kent Overstreet at the 2022 Linux Storage, Filesystem, Memory-management and BPF Summit (LSFMM), though, it would seem that bcachefs is likely to be heading upstream soon. He intends to start the process toward mainline inclusion over the next six months or so.Bcachefs Principles of OperationTow-Boot — Tow-Boot a user-friendly, opinionated distribution of U-Boot, where there is as few differences in features possible between boards, and a "familiar" user interface for an early boot process tool.OpenSats — Support contributors to Bitcoin and other free and open source projects.Pick: Briar — Secure messaging, anywhere.

    After losing contact with its helicopter, NASA put the entire Mars mission on hold — Mars is only going to get colder and darker for the next 10 weeks as winter deepens.
    Why the open source driver release from NVIDIA is so important for Linux? — Today NVIDIA announced that they are releasing an open source kernel driver for their GPUs, so I want to share with you some background information and how I think this will impact Linux graphics and compute going forward.NVIDIA Releases Open-Source GPU Kernel Modules — NVIDIA is now publishing Linux GPU kernel modules as open source with dual GPL/MIT license, starting with the R515 driver release.Hector Martin on Twitter — So NVIDIA "released" their kernel driver as open source.

    By which they mean, they moved most of it to firmware and made the open source driver call into it. There are almost 900 functions implemented in the 34MB firmware, give or take, from what I can see.

    Broadcom vibes...Longhorn on Twitter — Note that the 30MB+ firmware supports multiple GPU generations, and that’s an important factor.

Christian Schaller, the Director for Desktop, Graphics, Infotainment and more at Red Hat, gives us the inside scoop on this historic announcement.Tailscale raises $100M… to fix the Internet — This is not our first rodeo. We don’t know where the economy or the market are going. We don’t want to be pressured into juicing growth numbers beyond where they belong. We don’t want to put revenue ahead of quality, because our stats say quality is where all our growth comes from. sshuttle — where transparent proxy meets VPN meets sshDocumentation · Tailscale — Welcome to the Tailscale documentationGuides · TailscaleAccess a Pi-hole or Raspberry Pi from anywhere — One common use of a Raspberry Pi is to run a Pi-hole, a DNS-based ad blocking services.

My favorite podcast out there!

One of my favorite Linux-related podcasts

I enjoy the discussions and topics had on this podcast but I wish they would cover Debian more often. Debian doesn’t get nearly the coverage or respect that it deserves on this show.
