      • A journey in the RTC subsystem – Bootlin’s blog

        As part of a team effort to improve the upstream Linux kernel support for the Renesas RZ/N1 ARM processor, we had to write from scratch a new RTC driver for this SoC. The RTC subsystem API is rather straightforward but, as most kernel subsystems, the documentation about it is rather sparse. So what are the steps to write a basic RTC driver? Here are some pointers.

        [...]

        RTC counters rely on very precise clock sources to deliver accurate times. When the source is not matching the expected precision, which is the case of most cheap oscillators on the market. Some RTCs have a mechanism allowing to compensate for the frequency variation by incrementing or skipping the RTC counters at a regular interval in order to get closer to the reality.

        Secrets contain sensitive information, but they aren’t encrypted by default. Learn how to encrypt an etcd database to manage vital information in OpenShift.

        A secret in OpenShift is any critical resource or object type that provides a mechanism to hold sensitive information, such as a password, sensitive configuration file, Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate, Secure Shell (SSH) credential, or OAuth token.

        A secret is used in internal connections between different resources. For example, applications and services can share secret data within a namespace.

      • AddictiveTipsHow to install Parrot OS 5 Home Edition

        Parrot OS 5 is out, and a new Home Edition release comes with it. Home Edition 5 is packed with new stuff, like Pocsuite3, Findmyhash 2.0, version 5.16 of the Linux kernel, and much more. Here’s how to get Parrot OS 5 Home Edition working on your computer.

        Where to download Parrot OS 5 Home Edition

        Parrot OS 5 Home Edition can be downloaded from the official Parrot Linux website. “Home Edition” is a general-purpose operating system and can be used as such. However, users can still use it for security and pen-testing like traditional Parrot OS.

        Go to the website to get your hands on the latest Parrot OS 5 Home Edition ISO. Once there, click on the download button. When you select the “Download” button, the “Home Edition” should be the first edition that appears.

        Select the “Download” button to start the Parrot OS 5 Home Edition download process. Alternatively, select the “Torrent” download link. Torrenting Parrot OS helps developers save on bandwidth costs.

      • OSTechNixFind Default Gateway IP Address In Linux And Unix – OSTechNix

        A gateway is a node or a router that allows two or more hosts with different IP addresses to communicate with each other when connected to the same router. Without gateway, devices connected on the same router won’t be able to communicate with each other. To put this another way, the gateway acts as an access point to pass network data from a local network to a remote network. In this guide, we will see all the possible ways to find default gateway in Linux and Unix from commandline.

      • H2S Media4 ways to install Spotify App on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Linux

        Spotify is one of many Music Streaming Services over the Internet, you can listen to songs via stream legally on your smartphone and PC. Meanwhile, Spotify is also available as an app on many TVs. Thanks to providers such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, and Co., the download of music is no longer necessary. The music is streamed over the Internet, i.e. only temporarily cached. On request, however, a download of individual songs is also possible.

        Due to the cooperation with the major music labels such as Universal, Warner, and Sony, almost all artists are represented on Spotify. Only very small artists without a label can often not be reproduced. Using the search function, you can always search for your favorite songs, albums, and artists. If you listen to certain songs over and over again, you can create your own playlists and share them with friends.

        If you don’t want to put together your own music, you can take a look at Spotify’s numerous ready-made playlists. From the workout to the shower playlist, Spotify offers the right music for every occasion. In addition to music, Spotify is also offering more and more audiobooks and podcasts, for which Spotify has now created a separate category.

        A decade back terminal-based games were quite popular when you did not have visual masterpieces such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Spiderman, and God of War, or Grand Theft Auto 5. Most were played on DOS or hacker-like screens.

        The Linux platform carries its own share of good games but keeps in mind that these are not always the “latest and the greatest”, there are ASCII games to which we can never say no or turn our back. Most of the collection below can also be played online or in the browser depending on your setup.

        Please remember: Installing such games is time-consuming and you may encounter some games which require building from source.

      • Boiling SteamThe Steam Deck’s Sales Pitch for Japan: It Could Have Been Better, To Say the Least

        The launch of the Steam Deck in Japan, with a large presence at the Tokyo Games Show 2022 (TGS 2022) is yet another chance for us to discover how Valve is doing its sales pitch over here. There was hardly much advertising in other geographies so far, and Japan is a very big market when it comes to handheld gaming. Product positioning is crucial to make a dent into Nintendo’s turf.

        A video displayed at Valve/Komodo’s booth during the show explains to Japanese gamers what the Steam Deck is all about. Here’s an edit we just made (based on this original video) to help you see the points they make and the visuals they attach to it.

          While Plasma looks very similar to Windows out of the box, all it takes is a few clicks to make it look like macOS or virtually any type of operating system (OS) or DE you can imagine.

          Plasma also includes a full suite of applications that round out its features, including an Outlook-style PIM suite, powerful text editor, image viewer, file manager, music player, and literally dozens of other applications. Obviously, different distros package different KDE apps for their users, but anyone can download any applications their distro doesn’t include by default.

          One of the standout KDE apps is KDE Connect, an app that connects your Android phone with your Plasma desktop. This gives you the ability to get SMS notifications on your computer, share files, and even use your phone as a trackpad for Plasma.

          Last month, I was in Saumur (France) to attempt a KDE Promo sprint. This was my first sprint since the pandemic, actually this might even be my first ever official KDE sprint as before the pandemic I primarely attended conferences (Akademy, Fosdem, Libre Graphics Meeting, Linux App Summit, …) but no official sprint.

          The sprint took place during the weekend and was a great occassion to meet Allon, Aron and Neophytos for the first time. Aside from them I also meet Claudio, Paul, Joseph and Aniqua would I had already had the chance to meet before.

      We’ve always maintained and believed that one of the most powerful and essential aspects of Linux is the diversity and choices it offers its users. MakuluLinux is living proof of this. But first, let’s give readers a quick overview of this Linux distribution.

      MakuluLinux is a distribution focused solely on desktop Linux users and gamers. It is available in two free-to-download editions: MakuluLinux Shift and MakuluLinux Gamer.

      However, both have their own PRO editions with extra features, which we will review later in this article. So, understandably, MakuluLinux Shift Pro and MakuluLinux Gamer Pro are paid, priced at $30.

          Firefox 105 was yet another attempt for Mozilla to implement the long-anticipated two-finger swipe horizontal gesture on Linux systems for navigating back and forward on a website without having to hold down the Alt key. Unfortunately, while the feature worked well during beta testing, it’s missing in the final release.

          Instead, Linux users get more performance improvements with the Firefox 105 release, ensuring that the web browser is less likely to run out of memory when memory is running low. This also ensures that Firefox is more reliable and will perform better.

      • The New StackThe Different Token Types and Formats Explained – The New Stack

        When building security solutions using OAuth and OpenID Connect (OIDC), we frequently discuss tokens. Sometimes these systems are even referred to as token-based architectures.

        Tokens play a core role in authorizing access to applications, services and APIs. They also enable secure, flexible and scalable access management. Using tokens means applications don’t have to maintain a static API key or, even worse, hold a username and password.

        The type of token used in a given scenario is often not explicitly outlined, but more or less assumed. Different tokens have different purposes and should be used appropriately for each use case.

        We have piloted a Conan-based package manager as an alternative way to get the Qt binaries since the beginning of this year. While we have gotten a lot of good feedback and some users have found this approach valuable, overall, there has not been as much interest in Conan as we expected. We, therefore, plan to end the pilot by December 2022. No new Qt versions will be offered via Conan package manager, and we will take the experimental Conan server offline by the end of the year. Note that this does not affect the recipes on ConanCenter, which are maintained independently.

        • What I meant by the “soul of Rust”

          Re-reading my previous post, I felt I should clarify why I called it the “soul of Rust”. The soul of Rust, to my mind, is definitely not being explicit about allocation. Rather, it’s about the struggle between a few key values — especially productivity and versatility in tension with transparency. Rust’s goal has always been to feel like a high-level but with the performance and control of a low-level one. Oftentimes, we are able to find a “third way” that removes the tradeoff, solving both goals pretty well. But finding those “third ways” takes time — and sometimes we just have to accept a certain hit to one value or another for the time being to make progress. It’s exactly at these times, when we have to make a difficult call, that questions about the “soul of Rust” starts to come into play. I’ve been thinking about this a lot, so I thought I would write a post that expands on the role of transparency in Rust, and some of the tensions that arise around it.

      • MakeTech EasierHoliday Inn Parent Company Hacked Through Weak Password

        If you’ve wondered why having a strong password is necessary, this recent trouble is the reason. Intercontinental Hotels Group, the parent company of the Holiday Inn and other hotel chains, was hacked, and a Vietnamese couple is claiming responsibility for deleting the chain’s data, saying they did it through a week password.

        [...]

        A Vietnamese couple came forward and admitted to the BBC that they were behind the ICG cyberattack, yet deleting a large amount of data wasn’t the original plan. Initially, the plan was to launch a ransomware attack after they gained access to the company’s databases through a very weak password: “Qwerty1234.”

        The couple, going by the name of TeaPea, reached the BBC through Telegram and supplied screenshots, which IHG confirmed were authentic, that showed them gaining access to ICG’s Outlook emails, Microsoft Teams chats, and server directories.

        The only time you’d need a firewall is if you’re running some kind of server application on your system most of the time. In this case, a firewall will restrict incoming connections to certain ports, making sure that they can only interact with the proper server application. Again, there is no harm in not having a firewall activated on your Linux machine. All we are saying is that you should think about implementing a firewall using firewall-cmd for increased security!

      • AccessNowAuthorities in Iran must keep the [I]nternet accessible in Saqqez

        As civil society organizations, and members of tech communities, we are alarmed by the internet shutdown in the city of Saqqez, Kurdistan Province. This is Iran’s third internet shutdown in less than 12 months, and the repressive, knee-jerk response to recent protests seriously interferes with people’s right to freedom of expression and assembly.

        On September 16, 2022, in protest over the death of Mahsa Amini, dozens of people came to the streets of her hometown, Saqqez, Kurdistan Province, to mourn. During this protest, authorities cut off mobile data, and reportedly disrupted Instagram and WhatsApp. The order was given by the Provincial Security Council (شورای تامین استان in Farsi) — the provincial-level division of the National Security Council chaired by the governor.

        On September 14, Iran’s so-called morality police arrested Mahsa, 22 years old, in Tehran for what the government described as “improper” hijab. Two hours later, authorities informed Mahsa’s family that their daughter had been taken to a hospital. She died the next day after falling into a coma.
