Most recent round of stable kernel updates were released while on one of these trains early in the morning.

You have all upgraded, right? 4.11, 4.9, 4.4, and 3.18 kernels are out there for you to install, what are you waiting for!!!

As no one seemed to make 4.9 blow up too badly, let's try this again!

4.14 == next LTS kernel I support for at least 2 years.

Any objections?

/me hops on a 12 hour flight to avoid the discussion...

Messy desks are a good sign, right? Here's the latest desk setup, too many wires, too many power plugs, and too many USB storage devices for backup and testing, I need to clean up. Maybe later...

Perfect for a developer to give to their manager for how to handle properly releasing the source code for your device when you are using Linux.

Highly recommended, as well as the free book, for anyone building a product with Linux.

As it doesn't seem that very many people know about this Linux USB feature, here's a link to the userspace tool to provide access control to USB devices.

Oh, and we've had support for this for over a decade now, this is not anything new...

"9 lessons from 25 years of Linux kernel development" from Greg Kroah-Hartman. Short release cycles are important, process scalability requires a distributed, hierarchical development model, tools matter, the kernel's strongly consensus-oriented model is important, the kernel's strong 'no regressions' rule is also important, corporate participation in the process is crucial, but no single company dominates kernel development, there should be no internal boundaries within the project, the kernel shows that major developments can spring from small beginnings, above all, 25 years of kernel history show that sustained, cooperative effort can bring about common resources that no group would have been able to develop on its own.

Another in the never-ending series of "where was that kernel released at?"

Today's installment is brought to you from 3/4 the way up of the tallest building in Taiwan. One of the best views I've ever had for this task. Not the first time it has happened here, and hopefully not the last.

Oh, and go upgrade, new kernels are out there, something for everyone:
4.4.54
4.9.15
4.10.3

Oh look, a new phone nice! Oh wait, 3.4 based kernel?

And an out-of-date 3.4 kernel at that? Go read the comments, Willy shows that this is a totally insecure device, over 5000 bug and security fixes are missing from the kernel.

Not good at all, something needs to be done for this issue, educating people and companies seems to be my full-time job these days...

The coreOS people have much longer beards than the BSD people here at FOSDEM.
