  • Tempted But the Truth is Discovered | LINUX Unplugged 394

    After all these years, what's made us stick with Linux?

    Plus the commitment just made by the GNOME team, and some new tools that are changing our game.

  • mintCast 355 – Deferred Update

    First up, in our Wanderings, Mike shreds a new axe, I’m more and more impressed by Proton, Joe has frozen joints, Moss is going to be rich someday, Tony Hughes gets immunities, and Josh panics with a crowbar. 

    Then, in the News, so much controversy, Linux on Mars, VLC on the moon, Mint and mintCast make the cut, and more

  • New service: https://debuginfod.debian.net

    Hello there,

    I would like to announce a new service that I have just configured for
    Debian: https://debuginfod.debian.net.

    debuginfod is a new-ish project whose purpose is to serve
    ELF/DWARF/source-code information over HTTP.  It is developed under the
    elfutils umbrella.  You can find more information about it here:

      https://sourceware.org/elfutils/Debuginfod.html

    In a nutshell, by using a debuginfod service you will not need to
    install debuginfo (a.k.a. dbgsym) files anymore; the symbols will be
    served to GDB (or any other debuginfo consumer that supports debuginfod)
    over the network.  Ultimately, this makes the debugging experience much
    smoother (I myself never remember the full URL of our debuginfo
    repository when I need it).

    If you would like to use the service, and if the service supports the
    Debian distribution you are using (see below), all you have to do is
    make sure that the following environment variable is set in your shell:

      DEBUGINFOD_URLS="https://debuginfod.debian.net";

    Currently, the elfutils and GDB packages in unstable and testing have
    native support for using debuginfod.  I will soon propose a change to
    the elfutils package in order to make it be configured with our
    debuginfod instance by default, so that users will be able to use the
    service transparently.

    For now, debuginfod.debian.net is serving debug information symbols for
    the following Debian distributions:

      - unstable

      - testing
      - testing-proposed-updates

      - stable
      - stable-backports
      - proposed-updates

    In the near future I intend to expand this list and include the
    debuginfo stored at snapshot.debian.org as well.

    Setting up a debuginfod service for Debian has been on my TODO list for
    some time now, and I finally got enough time & resources to do it.  I
    would like to thank a few people for their feedback and help:

      - Héctor Orón (zumbi)
      - Jonathan Carter (highvoltage)
      - Paul Wise (pabs)

    Last, but not least, you can find a wiki page about our service here:

      https://wiki.debian.org/Debuginfod

    Thanks,

  • Debian Launches A Debuginfod Server For Smoother Debugging Experience

    Debian is the latest major Linux distribution deploying a Debuginfod web server so that ELF/DWARF/source-code information can be supplied via HTTP to clients on-demand when debugging. 

    Introduced last year was Debuginfod with GNU Binutils 2.34 for distributing debugging information / source code on demand. Readelf and objdump utilities can query connected Debuginfod servers for source files / data based on a build ID. Debuginfod support was later integrated into the GNU Debugger too (GDB 10.1). The effort was led by Red Hat engineers while now Debian is getting in on this practical feature too.

  • GNU poke 0.91 pre-released in alpha.gnu.org

    GNU poke (http://www.jemarch.net/poke) is an interactive, extensible editor for binary data.  Not limited to editing basic entities such as bits and bytes, it provides a full-fledged procedural, interactive programming language designed to describe data structures and to operate on them. 

  • Null MX - We do not accept email here!

    By creating a NULL MX RECORD for a domain name which isn't meant to receive email, the domain will clearly state that it doesn't accept any email, period. Anyone attempting to send email to that domain will then immediately received a notification saying you cannot send email to that domain.

  • RFC7505 Means Yes, Your Domain Can Refuse to Handle Mail. Please Leave Us a TXT If You Do.

    If you do not want a domain to receive any mail, there is a way to be at last somewhat civil about it. There's a different DNS trick for that.

GNOME’s Very Own “GNOME OS” is Not a Linux Distro for Everyone [Review]

Whenever a major release for GNOME arrives, it is always tempting to try it out as soon as possible. But, to get your hands on it first to test it, you had to mostly rely on Fedora Rawhide (development branch). However, a development branch isn’t always hassle-free. So, it wasn’t the most convenient solution to try the latest GNOME. Now, by testing, I don’t mean just for users but also being able to test design changes for the developers as well. Read more

Top 14 Terminal Emulators for Linux (With Extra Features or Amazing Looks)

By default, all Linux distributions already come pre-installed with a terminal application or terminal emulator (correct technical term). Of course, depending on the desktop environment, it will look and feel different. Here’s the thing about Linux. You are not restricted to what your distribution provides. You can opt for an alternative application of your choice. Terminal is no different. There are several impressive terminal emulators that offer unique features for a better user experience or for better looks. Here, I will be compiling a list of such interesting terminal applications that you can try on your Linux distribution. Read more
