Just wrote some stuff on how to cross-compile WebKit2GTK+ for ARM
I haven’t blogged in a while -mostly due to lack of time, as usual- but I thought I’d write something today to let the world know about one of the things I’ve worked on a bit duri…

Just to try and spread the word a bit more: that story going round about #Microsoft forcing #Lenovo to block Linux is not true.

https://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/44694.html
There's a story going round that Lenovo have signed an agreement with Microsoft that prevents installing free operating systems. This is sensationalist, untrue and distracts from a genuine problem. The background is straightforward. Intel platforms allow the storage to be configured in two ...

We deal with Lenovo on a regular basis at Red Hat, they have a pretty sizeable business selling Linux laptops and they actually collaborate in many aspects. We also have a pretty well working relationship with Microsoft on the Secure Boot and the UEFI spec.

Common sense points to a most likely a mistake by the PR person confusing Secure Boot with the real engineering reason behind the problem.

But of course, blaming E Corp. is always more headline friendly :)

Any of my London fellows want to buy an easy to use FPGA with a libre toolchain?

This is the baby (ICEStick FPGA Evaluation board):
http://dangerousprototypes.com/blog/2013/08/22/lattice-debuts-icestick-fpga-evaluation-board-at-24-99/

It's 15 GBP but I need two more buyers so that delivery is free (12 pounds otherwise, almost as much as another board).

Sad that I couldn't make it to #LibOCon this year :(

Unfortunately I concatenated two conferences (Flock and GUADEC) and a vacation and my body can't take it anymore :/

Hope you guys are having a blast! //cc +Bjoern Michaelsen +Michael Meeks +Caolán McNamara +Eike Rathke +Florian Effenberger

+Jiří Eischmann is looking for a junior GNOME developer based in Brno, Czech Republic in the printing and document viewing areas.

Jiri is a great manager and the overall desktop group is a great place to grow as a developer so if you fit the bill I wholeheartedly recommend you to apply.
 
We're looking for a new member of our team. Thanks for sharing! #gnome #desktop #linux #redhat

I agree, I don't appreciate hostilities towards other toolkits, most stuff people care about are in HTML these days anyway :-)

With no shortage of sweat and tears, +Oliver Gutiérrez, Miroslav Chodil and I are proud to announce Fleet Commander 0.8, some highlights:

- Fleet Commander's admin interface is now a #Cockpit plugin!!!!
- NetworkManager support for Ethernet, Wifi and VPN connections
- Initial support for GNOME Online Accounts templates
- Drop usage of libshh2 in favour of ssh for libvirt
- Dropped Websockify as a dependency as Cockpit provides a replacement
- Much better reliability of the SPICE connection and libvirt handling

And much more!

We're updating the documentation wiki with the new setup instructions and putting together a COPR repo for CentOS/RHEL7.2. Both should be ready early next week.

Builds are hitting Fedora 24/25/Rawhide as we speak.

Great analysis of the current HPE-MicroFocus deal and its implications for SUSE.
 
Here is the long version of my analysis of HPE's acquisition of Micro Focus as a spin-out home for its legacy software. Most important take-away: SUSE is back.
