  • Costa Rican group ICE joins Linux Foundation 5G Super Blue Print initiative [Ed: What the heck is the connection to Linux? Just about nothing. Sometimes the OS, but this isn't about the OS.]

    Costa Rica's state telecom and energy operator ICE is the first Latin American operator to join the Linux Foundation's (LF) 5G Super Blue Print initiative, the LF press office confirmed to BNamericas.

    LF Networking, the LF group that works on open source networking projects, announced last week that seven new member organizations have joined the community to collaborate on the 5G Super Blue Print initiative, including the Costa Rican operator and ANTTEC, ICE's main union of technicians and engineers.

    The 5G Blue Print initiative is a big focus for Linux Foundation this year and the organization expects more companies to join the community.

  • Hot new summer items from GNU Press! — Free Software Foundation

    The Free Software Foundation's (FSF) summer fundraiser is underway, and that means there are new items in the GNU Press Shop!

    First and foremost, there's the latest GNU hue: the gnu head T-shirt in "thirty-fifth anniversary" coral. You will stand out from the crowd in this exuberantly colored shirt. We're taking orders for a limited time for these, until July 16th, and then printing the shirts -- you should have yours in your hands and on your shoulders a few weeks later.

    We are also very pleased to present the GNU Press Shop's most novel novelty item yet: the software freedom advice orb. This "apparently-smart" tool offers words of wisdom to free software developer and layperson alike. Whenever you can't decide whether to "read the docs" or "file a bug," the orb can help. It's usable on any number of occasions and requires no charging or maintenance. We have a limited number of orbs, so get yours before they're gone!

  • Age discrimination case against IBM leaks emails, docs via bad redaction

    An IBM age discrimination lawsuit filed in Texas last year has become a bit less opaque after The Register found an inadequately redacted court document that discusses plans to present evidence obtained from company emails and documents.

    The case involves 16 former Big Blue employees who claim "IBM’s highest executives created and attempted to conceal a multi-faceted 'fire-and-hire' scheme with the ultimate goal of making IBM’s workforce younger."

    Since the publication of a 2018 report by ProPublica and Mother Jones alleging systematic efforts within IBM to get rid of older employees and findings to that effect by the United States' Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), there have been multiple lawsuits against IBM claiming that the IT titan engaged in a pattern of discriminatory behavior.

    There's a case underway in New York involving several former IBM employees. Last April, another case in Texas involving plaintiff Jonathan Langley was unexpectedly dismissed – and presumably settled.

  • 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.
