Linux Plumbers Conference 2010 Call for Track Ideas


Linux.com T-shirt Design Contest Finalists Announced

,----[ Quote ]
| The 100+ designs we received proved that 
| the best ideas come from the community. We 
| also know that the community knows best, so 
| weâre asking you to vote for the very best 
| design. We have six finalists, not five as 
| we originally said we would have. Like I 
| said: it was hard to choose!
| The community favorite will win a trip to 
| Boston to attend LinuxCon as well as the 
| fame and fortune garnered by having their 
| design displayed on Linux.com Store 
| merchandise worn around the globe. 


The case of the overly anonymous anon_vma

,----[ Quote ]
| During the stabilization phase of the 
| kernel development cycle, the -rc releases 
| typically happen about once every week. 
| 2.6.34-rc4 is a clear exception to that 
| rule, coming nearly two weeks after the 
| preceding -rc3 release. The holdup in this 
| case was a nasty regression which occupied 
| a number of kernel developers nearly full 
| time for days. The hunt for this bug is a 
| classic story of what can happen when the 
| code gets too complex.

| We dig into the centre of the Linux kernel 
| to uncover why sound can be so... unsound



Google open source guru says Android code will be in Linux kernel in time

,----[ Quote ]
| Googleâs Android code will assume its
| rightful place in the Linux kernel â in
| good time, the companyâs top open source
| guru says.
| The Android code was stripped out of the
| last kernel release, version 2.6.33, after
| Google reportedly failed to provide
| necessary changes and subsystem code
| required by kernel.org.


Android and Linux are growing back together

,----[ Quote ]
| Google's Android, the increasingly important
| embedded Linux, had one major problem: it had
| been moving slowly away from the Linux
| mainstream. Now, after the recent Linux
| Foundation Collaboration Conference, Android
| and Linux are coming back together.
| Not only is Google going to be hiring two new
| Android developers to work more closely with
| the Linux kernel development team, they're
| also working on re-merging its driver code
| with Linux. Indeed, the first series of driver
| patches that will bring Android and Linux back
| into alignment have already arrived.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
