  • Linux 5.10.70 lands in Debian 11 Proposed Updates

    Debian 11 is bringing in the latest LTS Linux kernel very soon.

    This morning, I noticed that Linux 5.10.70 was available in Debian 11’s proposed updates and installed it over 5.10.46. A quick line count shows roughly ~2,200 bugs fixed all around the kernel tree between the two releases.

    Nothing out of the ordinary. Wifi, bluetooth, file system, graphics adapter, power management bugs zapped. Many HP laptop owners get better audio and hotkey support. Many, many other small improvements.

    Some Intel Wifi problems, in particular, should be smoothed out, although at least one of them was functionally pointless. “Inclusive language”. Blacklist = Blocklist, Whitelist = Allowlist, Master = Primary, Slave = Peripheral. Woke crap that doesn’t really fix anything in the driver.

  • If Fedora won’t package KDE properly, they should drop the packages and tell people to use some other operating system.

    A while back, IBM bought Red Hat and now exercises complete control over Fedora. They really are just a GNOME distribution, and it’s quite apparent that nobody there really cares if KDE works properly or not.

    As a guy who uses GNOME, I do want to point out that KDE isn’t bad software, but many distributions don’t do it justice, and the last time I even bothered trying Fedora with KDE, it was so hopelessly broken that it’s essentially not even worth downloading anymore.

    For example, they kicked out the one person left who did care, over bullshit “Code of Conduct” violations. He hurt the “feelings” of corporations, for example. That would be Kevin Kofler.

    Then they essentially turned it over to people who use Microsoft Edge and Windows 10 as their main systems. I know this because Fedora-KDE’s official rooms on Matrix dot org expose what browser and OS the person is logged into, and the top two Fedora-KDE people with mod hats and activity in the Fedora build system, primarily use Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 and Safari on a Mac.

  • Open Mainframe Project Announces New Milestones and Opportunities

    The Open Mainframe Project recently announced record growth in contributions--with more than 105.31 million lines of code written and more than 9,600 commits submitted by Open Mainframe Project communities so far this year. This is 100% more code than last year with an increased number of active participants in the 20 project and working groups. These numbers will only increase as Open Mainframe continues to be the cornerstone of governance and innovation for modernizing the mainframe and its path to IoT, Cloud and Edge Computing.

  • Raspberry Pi Pico Brings ‘Goblet of Fire’ to Life

    Nick Rufflio had magic on his mind when he created this interactive ‘Goblet of Fire’ project, inspired by the fourth Harry Potter book of the same name. It’s powered by a Raspberry Pi Pico and does more than just replicate the classic goblet.

    The best Raspberry Pi projects have a functional purpose and this project doubles as a chip dip bowl for parties. Dipping your chip in the bowl will cause the goblet to play audio as if the chip dipping has been recognized as an entry for the TriWizard Tournament.

  • WooCommerce Marks 10 Year Anniversary of Forking Jigoshop

    WooCommerce is celebrating 10 years since WooThemes launched the first iteration of the WooCommerce plugin. Paul Maiorana, WooCommerce’s current CEO, covered a few high highlights of the plugin’s rising popularity over the years in his anniversary post. After 16 months in the wild, WooCommerce had been downloaded 500,000 times and passed the 1 million downloads milestone just 137 days later. In 2014, the night before the very first WooConf, the plugin celebrated passing 5 million downloads. It was acquired by Automattic in 2015 in a deal rumored to be more than $20 million.

    WooCommerce’s anniversary post, which glossed over its checkered origin story, reignited some of the controversy surrounding the Jigoshop fork. While the post mentions that WooThemes hired two Jigoshop developers “to create a dedicated eCommerce plugin called WooCommerce,” it neglected to mention that the initial version was actually a fork of Jigoshop. WooThemes had convinced Mike Jolley and Jay Koster to fork the work they had done for their previous employer, Jigowatt, after failing to make a deal with the Jigowatt team.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
