Linux File Systems

,----[ Quote ]
| LINUX FILE SYSTEMS are an essential 
| operating system resource. Modern file 
| systems and disk drive technology are 
| robust and reliable â so, most 
| administrators put little effort into 
| planning or worrying about them once the 
| operating system is configured. This makes 
| me both smile and cringe.


Feature Plans For Xen 4.1 Come About

,----[ Quote ]
| Xen 4.0 was just released a few days back 
| with a variety of features from graphics 
| card pass-through support to online 
| resizing of guest disks, but features for 
| Xen 4.1 are already brewing. Xen 4.1 will 
| be the next major release for this once-
| popular virtualization platform and its 
| feature list is quickly growing. 


Ubuntu 10.04 Gets A New Catalyst Pre-Release

,----[ Quote ]
| A month ago the Canonical crew working on 
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS received an unreleased 
| Catalyst 10.4 driver from AMD for inclusion 
| with the Lucid Lynx since the publicly 
| available ATI Catalyst drivers had not -- 
| and to this day still do not -- support the 
| X.Org Server 1.7 used by this next Ubuntu 
| release. Similar pre-releases for Ubuntu 
| have happened in the past when AMD hasn't 
| been quick to the game in supporting new 
| Linux kernels and X Servers. This driver 
| was made available in Ubuntu 10.04 even 
| before Catalyst 10.3 was released. Catalyst 
| 10.4 still has not been publicly released, 
| but another updated 10.4 driver has made 
| its way into the Lucid repository. 


Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 "Lyngen" Alpha 3

,----[ Quote ]
| It's been three weeks since Phoronix Test 
| Suite 2.6 Alpha 2 was released (compared 
| the usual two weeks, due to the tour of 
| Chernobyl), but the third alpha release for 
| this next release codenamed "Lyngen" is now 
| available.
| Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 Alpha 3 is carrying 
| mostly internal changes and improvements to 
| pts-core, but there are some externally 
| visible changes too. The start of the 
| suite-to-pdf option has been introduced, 
| various bug-fixes, text-based interface 
| enhancements, tweaks to the generated 
| graphs, and compatibility with older 
| versions of PHP 5.1/5.2. 



Next-Gen Linux File Systems: Change Is the New Constant

,----[ Quote ]
| With support for over 50 file systems,
| excluding user space implementations,
| GNU/Linux has been extremely successful at
| supporting file system innovation. That
| success has no doubt been aided by open
| source development. However, the storage
| industry is experiencing major
| architectural changes, and understanding
| emerging file systems -- and how to apply
| them -- is critical to keeping up with
| today's demands.
