Dear Lazyplus,

What's your favorite way to get an 80x24 terminal? I upgraded to Fedora 24 and now the resize menu in my floating gnome-terminal doesn't work anymore. But maybe I should try upgrading to something else now anyhow... Or, has anyone else run in to this kind of problem? Thanks!

Alright, so for the coming week at least, I'm trying out the following. First, apparently it's easier to support high DPI screens now, so I've dropped one of my kludges and am now setting DPI correctly to it's full value (xrandr --fbmem in .xinitrc, .Xresources telling Xft my DPI). I tried Terminator and have run into some crazy issue where local echo is basically not working. Sakura just segfaults. I'm just going to see if most of my boards are in fact OK in 80x24'ish terminals now. In the forever-ago since I used urxvt it's gained tabs via a perl extension. So I'm reworking my main terminal quad to have tabs of urxvt. I'm going to try life again without a scratchpad too, it might not be so ingrained that I can't live without it.

This sounds important to me. And something I agree with too.

So, continuing on with what I said in +Jon Masters post the other day. Anyone can help make a difference. You don't need special skills nor an opportunity that matches up with your work skillset 1:1 (it's great if you can find one tho, sure). There's lots of places in your local community that would be happy to take some volunteers that are "only" reliable and able to think through a problem. Don't get angry, help others.

(And there may be a video clip later on, once the news has aired).
New Hanover County Schools is offering a summer program that opens up several school libraries, throughout the summer.

I just thought I would post a small ode to how awesome some hardware is. My Chromebook Pixel 2012? Sure, I have to use bluetooth as my workaround for audio but, that' not a big use case for me. Suspend/resume works. Screen works. Really, everything works. Battery life? Pretty awesome too. Next? Beaglebone White. Awesome. I stick it, an SD card and a USB cable in my backpack and bam, I'm productive and working from wherever.

Yeah, I like a lot of other dev boards that I have in my lab too with various levels of easy remote functionality.  But what really works for me on BBW is the single cable power+uart+debug.  Easy firmware recovery point is important for me :)  But that single cable really seals the deal when I'm otherwise having poor latency but still need to do some work.

PSA#2: Using dd-wrt and have an ISP that probably does dual stack IPv4 + IPv6 (which in the US seems to be most big cable companies now even, yay) ? You're looking for "DHCPv6 with Prefix Delegation" on the IPv6 tab and not "Native IPv6 from ISP" and on a related note, your favorite DNS servers have an IPv6 equiv of 2001:4860:4860:8888 / 8844.

My ISP assigned me a /48 and then later explained that they don't yet actually route IPv6 anywhere... m(

PSA#1: I got hit by this and the answer was simple and obvious. Don't use a widely known tunnel (HE) that then falls into the "we're banning people that are using known obvious tunnels" Netflix problem. I disabled IPv6 on the machines that cared about Netflix, done.
An anonymous reader writes: In another example of content owners putting the screws to Netflix and consumers, network operators are reporting that the popular streaming service has begun blocking many customers on IPv6 connections. Many users of Hurricane Electric's IPv4-to-IPv6 service have been bl...

It's true! And you might recognize some of the names on there too.

One can only speculate that perhaps this means that there will be some form of general availability of non-phone and non-maker platforms available. That sure would be interesting given the age of my current local build machine and being far far less than a stranger to having my primary development box be non-x86.
 
Let's make one thing very clear. This year, anyone is going to be able to take an unmodified upstream Linux kernel and install it onto on any Fedora or RHELSA system compliant with the ARM server specifications, and it is just going to boot and work out of the box. They're going to be able to triage any system stability or other kernel issues against an upstream non-vendor kernel, engage in direct development upstream (and help transition some of the core developers away from using only that other architecture for their daily driver), and know that long term enablement is in place for their chosen platforms so that they don't have to guess whether a vendor will enable a system next cycle.

I have only just begun the extreme pressure that is going to begin to land on vendors and others in the ARM ecosystem, and intensify exponentially if needed until this is all done. Before the end of 2016. This is server. In server we do things one way (the right, upstream way), and everyone will fall into line. There will be no exceptions. Pressure works - we simply refuse to enable features that aren't upstream and folks are already becoming acutely aware of how seriously we mean it. Linus yells, which helps greatly, but I can also use economics to compel compliance with good open source hygiene. And that's happening. Expect to see more religious conversions to upstream on the part of vendors over coming months.

Oh and that feature you wanted in RHELSA? Upstream it and then talk to us with commit IDs. We are going to be doing this just like other architectures do it. No zoos. So (just an example) if you want SMMUv3 support, go upstream SMMUv3 support under an ACPI regime properly before you call. Apply this logic to any shiny feature you want. Especially ones someone told you was "upstream" where they really meant "kinda works if you use DeviceTree". DeviceTree is irrelevant on standards compliant ARM server systems. We ignore any that are present, and aren't interested in talking about your reasons why this might be of any importance as a hack.

+Andrew Bradford probably will I think.  But yeah, they're too cost prohibitive.

Hmm, I wonder if +Plex is going to support ARMv8 platforms. Otherwise I suppose I could look into from source options to serve up my media..
