Ubuntu 12.10 released

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxUbuntu 12.10 was released on October 18th, 2012.
A couple of major features: websites can now be treated as actual applications, integrating them into Unity. The divide between local and online content when searching has also been softened, which, they claim, makes it easier to find what you're looking for. On the server side, it includes the Folsom release of OpenStack, "Cinder, for block storage and Quantum, a virtual networking API. Ubuntu's Metal-as-a-Service bare-metal provisioning tool has been updated and now supports Calxeda hyperscale hardware based on ARM".

Baserock

GNU/LinuxBaserock aims to be a great way to build embedded systems with Linux. The initial releases target x86_32 and x86_64 for ease of development, but we're working on support for ARM based devices as well. Baserock is a new project - documentation is incomplete and likely to change.

GNU/LinuxTvheadend is a TV streaming server for Linux supporting DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C, DVB-T, ATSC, IPTV, and Analog video (V4L) as input sources. You need a frontend to actually watch your recordings, for example XBMC. Looks like a good alternative to MythTV.

Quick tip: Ubuntu - proxy settings for Update Manager

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxYou have set the proxy in"Network proxy" (Applications, System Tools, System Settings, Network) but update-manager still doesn't work. In Ubuntu, update-manager has its own proxy settings. You will have to edit / create the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy and put this line in it:
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxyserver:proxyport/";
For example
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy:8080/";
That's it.

Ubuntu and the Sky City Nano 11N USB adapter

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxI recently got a Sky City Nano 11 N usb wireless adapter (sku.54193), and planned using it in Ubuntu 10.10. However, the adapter wasn't recognized when plugged in. A bit of Googling led to this thread: NET-WL-UMD-606N and Linux. So I downloaded RTL8188CUS_linux_v2.0.1324.zip from Realtek and followed the instructions in the thread, and now I have a Realtek 802.11n WLAN Adapter on my Ubuntu machine. Cool!
