Given the importance placed on CLI usage by many in the Linux community it's weird that a terminal isn't open by default on many Distros. Today I remembered that while on Antergos a few years ago I'd installed a terminal that you could call simply by pressing a hotkey.

Enter Yakuake ("Yah-quake")

Yakuake smoothly drops down from the top of your screen in response to the hotkey (the default is F12) and voila!: a ready to use terminal! Add it to Autostart and it'll run whenever you run a session of Linux, forever saving you having to load Konsole (or whatever) every time you want to use it.

And as I'm running KDE the fact it uses Konsole tech means it has that familiar look and feel, but shows Session tabbing by default foregrounding the ability to run separate terminal sessions and putting it within easy reach of GUI users and a mouse-click.

What Terminals do you folks run with?

@SirBoostALot @Uraael gnome terminal and konsole both have tabs. Why is iTerm2 so important?

@SirBoostALot @Uraael ctrl+shift+t to open a tab. Profiles down below.

"It appears that the upstream kernel endeavor on Rocky Linux may be gated to their commercial customers as opposed to making all the assets freely available and just gating their commercial support."

Where is my surprised face... oh, here it is: 😯

@sesivany outright copying the business model they criticized. I wonder if they will copy and paste our legal language on terminating support too.

sageofredondo,
@sageofredondo@mastodon.social avatar

@purpleidea @sesivany are you sure you are not confusing public with a requirement to distribute the source code under the GPL? Red Hat is complying with that.

What the clones were upset was is that we were providing debranded access to the source code for them for the main release of RHEL to easily repackage and we stopped. They criticized us for that, claiming we went closed source. They are now doing the exact same thing. Only providing source code to those that got binaries.

    A employee reported some out-of-tree code broke after something internal was renamed recently in 5.15.y – and as expected was told this is no regression at all, as the does not have a binary kernel interface, nor does it have a stable kernel interface:

    https://lore.kernel.org/all/924449dc-9b1f-4943-afe3-a68c03aedbb5@canonical.com/

    Christoph Hellwig in a reply also wrote: "given that Canonical ignores our licensing rules and tries to get away with it I'm not going to offer any help to Canonical at all."

    sageofredondo,
    @sageofredondo@mastodon.social avatar

    @kernellogger Thorsten, you may want to reword this. Greg KH clearly wrote in the context of kernel drivers there is no stable API. That has always been true.

    The way I read as he was talking about userspace where there is a stable API.

    P.S. Oracle needs to relicense ZFS.

    @popey your experience sounds similar to me. Except with Red Hat health care I was able to see someone in two months and a prescriber in a month.

    As you get older, ADHD gets worse. I have dual Autism and ADHD inattentive.
    Atomoxetine is a non-stimulant. Lisdexamfetamine is a stimulant. Surprised they also did not suggest Adderall XR. I tried 3 stimulants; then tried Atomoxetine and it seems to work well for me so far. Still learning myself.

    Them: we're excited to offer the project a grant of $2,000 in USDC.

    (USDC? Quick Google. What's that?)

    Me:Sorry, I'm not interested in any crypto currencies. If you can't pay real money then I'm not interested.

    sageofredondo,
    @sageofredondo@mastodon.social avatar

    @bagder they want you to use it and talk about it?

    Took a quick look. In theory you can exchange it without fees at coinbase, but it essentially is tokens that claims to be dollars so the people sending it would have to collect tax info from you.

    https://www.coinbase.com/usdc

    It is funny. How are they suppose to make money with no fees? Seems they skim part of the interest the dollars from the treasuries they hold?

    Spread the word. From that new AGPL v3 or higher project to liberate your data to secret AI software that will make robots do the dishes Vultr can claim the right to use whatever you upload for a server you paid for.

    Pretty sure it was just a lawyer being overcautious due to something internal they do not want to talk about, but any corporate attorney will be grinding their teeth now.

    Yes I check Vultr's current TOS; it is still there.

    @popey irc was shut down a while ago inside Red Hat. My team still does use IRC to chat with upstream kernel subsystems.

    Hey copyright people! What's the difference between "Copyright (c) Foo Bar" and "Copyright Foo Bar" from a legal point of view?

    I'm wondering if I can standardize them in my projects, and if so, which version should I be using. Thanks!

    sageofredondo,

    @hughsie I believe you should always have the © in case court change their view or the law changes. Not a lawyer, you can ask Red Hat's lawyers for more info as why.

    Did a few migrations from CentOS Stream 8 to AlmaLinux 8 today ahead of CS8 going end of life in 2 months. The migrations were quick and easy.

    sageofredondo,
    @sageofredondo@mastodon.social avatar

    @vwbusguy really? Stream is ahead of Alma 8.9. Did you migrate to the 8.10 beta or 8.9 Alma? As far as I know; Elevate does not support migrating from Stream.

    If any of you are running GNOME Shell (on any distro) on Wayland (on any GPU), can you run "nvtop" to see how much GPU memory "/usr/bin/gnome-shell" is using?

    It's using ~50% of the (512MiB) GPU memory here. Is that normal?

    sageofredondo,
    @sageofredondo@mastodon.social avatar

    @popey I was not expecting something starting with nv to work for Intel graphics. But it does, barely. Shows the percentage used, but not memory; using Fedora 39 GNOME Wayland Intel 12th gen Alder Lake graphics.

    My Nixos experiment was going so well… genuinely I am a bit miffed by this!

    Alas, I am having repeated hard lock ups with large zfs replications.

    Things I have tried:

    • memtest for 5hours. ✅
    • s-tui cpu stress test for 3hrs. ✅
    • booted in a live Ubuntu iso and performed the same zfs replication for 2hrs. No lock ups.

    Because the machine just hard locks I get no stacktrace or kernel panic to help me here. No logs I can find or anything.

    So it’s got to be one of the following.

    • A hardware issue. I’m not ruling this out because even though the majority of the system was untouched there is a new HBA (LSI 16i) in there. And a couple of new SSDs.
    • A software issue. Is there something in the Nixos implementation of zfs that’s causing this? Seems so unlikely but I think I owe it to try a different OS today for testing.
    sageofredondo,

    @ironicbadger what is the kernel and openzfs number?
