Confirmado Ice Cream Sandwich para Milestone 2 (Thanks Xda and Tzet ;) )

Standard

Ao que tudo indica o Tzet está matando a pau no Android 4.0.1 para o milestone 2.
Isto é muito bom pois em poucos dias teremos o S.O. disponível e bem estável.

Para conferir a nota completa acessem:

Se observarem em outros lugares versão que no repositório deles não existe mais correria em cima da rom 2.3.7x, até por que o foco da própria google está quase que 100% destinado ao Ice Cream Sandwich.

Para ver a última rom do gingerbread lançada sobre Cyanogenmod acessem:

Lançado novo Linux Mint 12 (RC1)

Standard

Veja nota:

The first release candidate for Mint 12, an Ubuntu-based distribution with a choice between a highly customised GNOME 3 and MATE (a fork of GNOME 2) desktops, is out and ready for testing: “The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 12 ‘Lisa’ RC. Linux Mint 12 is a new step forward, using new technologies and a brand new desktop, built with GNOME 3 and Mint GNOME Shell Extensions (MGSE). MGSE is a desktop layer on top of GNOME 3 that makes it possible to use GNOME 3 in a traditional way. You can disable all components within MGSE to get a pure GNOME 3 experience, or you can enable all of them to get a GNOME 3 desktop that is similar to what you’ve been using before. The main features in MGSE are: the bottom panel, the application menu, the window list, a task-centric desktop (i.e. you switch between windows, not applications), visible system tray icons.” Read the release announcement and check out the what’s new page for more detailed information and screenshots.

Código Fonte do Android 4 será liberado antes do fim do ano

Standard

Bem, temos percebido que muitos leitores já estão buscando no Google o termo instalando android 4 no milestone 2 ou coisa do tipo (mudando somente o smartphone), só que, não é correto correr atrás dessas instalações agora, pois o Google Android 4 ainda nem foi liberado (source) aos desenvolvedores. Segundo noticiado (pelo Notícias Linux e H-Online) brevemente veremos o código fonte disponível. Há poucos dias falamos sobre especulações de que hardware conseguirá rodar o android 4 (requerimentos mínimos para rodar android 4). Esperamos que os geeks do MIUI e CyanogenMod toquem no fonte e façam algum milagre para dar mais vida ainda aos nossos smartphones. (como já têm feito)

Bryen Yunashko has announced the availability of the beta release of openSUSE 12.1: “The much-awaited beta release of openSUSE 12.1 is here. If you’ve been following us, you know this release was originally called Milestone 6. However, the release team and its testers agreed that this round of testing showed milestone 6 to be so stable and ready for general testing, they decided to call it beta.

Quais os requerimentos Mínimos ou Recomendados para rodar MAC OS X Lion

Standard

Bom pessoal, boa noite, nós podemos nos questionar sobre quais equipamentos suportariam o Mac Os X Lion de maneira eficaz.

 

PROCESSADORES SUPORTADOS

Abaixo iremos descrever quais os modelos de processadores e detalhar um caso muito interessante (Hackintosh), abaixo seguem detalhes dos processadores suportados pelo Mac Os X Lion:

Processadores dos tipos-> Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5, Intel Core i7, ou Xeon (linha mac pro).
Interessante este ponto (e é oficial) citado acima, pois nós do APPUNIX conseguimos rodar com maestria o Lion 10.7.1 em cima de um Intel Dual Core 2160 :D.

Na verdade o mais importante é que seu processador (no caso de hackintosh) tenha flags suficientes para operar o Sistema Operacional da Apple :D.

 

MEMÓRIA SUPORTADA
2 gb de ram

Inclusive em nosso Hackintosh Intel Dual Core 2160 temos justamente 2 gb de ram. (recomendamos que use 4 gb de ram para ver que o que é top se tornará mais que TOP).

 

OPEN CL (nosso amigo Q/E)

Informaremos a seguir as placas oficiais e, mais uma vez, citar a nossa config em nosso hackintosh:

  • NVIDIA GeForce 320M, GeForce GT 330M, GeForce 9400M, GeForce 9600M GT, GeForce 8600M GT, GeForce GT 120, GeForce GT 130, GeForce GTX 285, GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GS, Quadro FX 4800, Quadro FX5600
  • ATI Radeon HD 4670, ATI Radeon HD 4850, Radeon HD 4870, ATI Radeon HD 5670, ATI Radeon HD 5750, ATI Radeon HD 5770, ATI Radeon HD 5870
  • AMD Radeon HD 6750M, AMD Radeon HD 6770M, AMD Radeon HD 6970M

SE VOCÊ tem um chipset intel (daqueles x3100) não vai rolar Q/E não, mas dá para usar o sistema numa boa :D.

Estamos (em nosso hackintosh) usando uma Nvidia 8500 GT 512MB rodando com Q/E que é uma beleza :D.

 

ESPAÇO EM DISCO (em caso de Upgrade)

7GB de espaço LIVRE!

 

UPGRADE do SNOW LEOPARD para LION

Se sua versão for 10.6.6 (snow leopard), porém, para upgrades recomenda-se 10.6.8.

Lançado FreeBSD 9.0-BETA2

Standard

Ken Smith has announced the availability of the second beta of FreeBSD 9.0, more than a month later than planned: “The second beta build of the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. Note: the location of the FTP install tree and ISOs have changed slightly. What we used for BETA2 reflects a directory structure that would let us fully utilize building and distributing a wider variety of architectures. The new layout does add some extra complexity, so we’re actively discussing whether or not to change the layout from previous releases, and if we do change it whether or not to change it this much. What’s there now can be viewed as an almost ‘worst-case’ scenario. It’s entirely possible we’ll back off and revert to the old layout despite that layout potentially limiting.” There is much more information in the release announcement, including notes on what to test. Download links for the i386 and amd64 ISO images: FreeBSD-9.0-BETA2-i386-dvd1.iso (498MB, SHA256), FreeBSD-9.0-BETA2-amd64-dvd1.iso (607MB, SHA256).

Lançado Linux Mint 11 LXDE

Standard

Clement Lefebvre has announced the release of the “LXDE” edition of Linux Mint 11: “The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 11 LXDE. Linux Mint 11 LXDE comes with updated software and brings refinements and new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use. The Software Manager – many improvements were made to its graphical interface, and the Software Manager now looks much more polished. Application screens were visually improved, not only in the way they look but also in their layout and the information they show. For instance, the Software Manager now runs a simulation prior to showing you the application, so when you look at it, it can tell you precisely which packages would be added or removed to your system, how much data would be downloaded and how much space would be taken on the hard drive.” See the release announcement and visit the what’s new page to learn more.

PCLinuxOS 2011.6 Lançado

Standard

PcLinuxOS é uma distribuição baseada no Mandriva, mas totalmente independente.

Veja as notas de lançamento por completo:

Kernel – The kernel was updated to version 2.6.38.8. Additional kernels are available from our repositories such as a PAE kernel for computers with more than 4 gigs of memory. A BFS kernel for maximum desktop performance and a standard kernel with group scheduling enabled.

Xorg – Xorg server was updated to version 1.10.2. Mesa updated to 7.10.3 and libdrm to version 2.4.26. This update brings enhancements to the PCLinuxOS desktop including speed, 3D desktop support for most Intel, Nvidia and AMD/ATi video cards, better font rendering, black screen fixes for most Nvidia cards, better Flash playback and more. The most recent versions of Nvidia and AMD/ATi video drivers are included on the LiveCD and automatically configured for you. The bad news is users with older legacy video cards included in most dated computers may not function properly due to many depreciated xorg video drivers.

Toolchain – Gcc software compiler was updated to version 4.5.2 and glibc updated to 2.10.1. Locales were updated to version 2.12.1.

Package Manager – RPM was updated to version 4.8.1. apt-get and the Synaptic Package Manager were also updated to work with the updated rpm packages. yum and yumex will be available in the coming weeks as an alternative package manager.

Theme Update – The 2011 release received a full makeover. PCLinuxOS features a new brush metal theme including updates to grub, plymouth, kdm, kdesplash and application splash screens. Additional themes are available as well as our previous theme from our software repository.

Theme screenshots located here: http://goo.gl/il3CG

Remastering Tools – mylivecd was updated to work with the latest release. mylivecd added the ability to install PCLinuxOS from the boot menu without having to go to the desktop first. There are 3 compression schemes available now for remastering your installation. xz maximum compression, xz normal compression and gzip for fast compression. xz max takes longer to generate the LiveCD but produces the most compressed image where as gzip will create a LiveCD fairly quick but the compressed image will be larger. mylivecd can also generate a LiveDVD with up to 4 gigs of compressed data. Usually a 10-12 gig installation will compress into a 4 gig DVD.

Software – PCLinuxOS 2011 LiveCD come with the latest versions of most popular programs such as KDE 4.6.4, Firefox 5.0, Thunderbird 3.1.11, Pidgin 2.9.0, VLC 1.10.0 and Clementine 0.7.1 just to name a few. OpenOffice Manager has been replaced with LibreOffice Manager. Due to the limited size of the LiveCD the office suite is not included but can be installed through the LibreOffice Manager either in LiveCD mode (3 gigs memory required) or preferably after hard drive installation. Addlocale has updated translations and can convert a PCLinuxOS installation into over 70 different languages. The software included on the LiveCD was based on community feedback as to what the PCLinuxOS users wanted to be included by default.

    net: fix rds_iovec page count overflow

    commit 1b1f693d7ad6d193862dcb1118540a030c5e761f upstream.

    As reported by Thomas Pollet, the rdma page counting can overflow.  We
    get the rdma sizes in 64-bit unsigned entities, but then limit it to
    UINT_MAX bytes and shift them down to pages (so with a possible "+1" for
    an unaligned address).

    So each individual page count fits comfortably in an 'unsigned int' (not
    even close to overflowing into signed), but as they are added up, they
    might end up resulting in a signed return value. Which would be wrong.

    Catch the case of tot_pages turning negative, and return the appropriate
    error code.

    [PG: In 34, var names are slightly different, 1b1f6's tot_pages is
     34's nr_pages, and 1b1f6's nr_pages is 34's nr; so map accordingly.]

    econet: 4 byte infoleak to the network

    commit 67c5c6cb8129c595f21e88254a3fc6b3b841ae8e upstream.

    struct aunhdr has 4 padding bytes between 'pad' and 'handle' fields on
    x86_64.  These bytes are not initialized in the variable 'ah' before
    sending 'ah' to the network.  This leads to 4 bytes kernel stack
    infoleak.

    This bug was introduced before the git epoch.

    xfs: zero proper structure size for geometry calls

    commit af24ee9ea8d532e16883251a6684dfa1be8eec29 upstream.

    Commit 493f3358cb289ccf716c5a14fa5bb52ab75943e5 added this call to
    xfs_fs_geometry() in order to avoid passing kernel stack data back
    to user space:

    +       memset(geo, 0, sizeof(*geo));

    Unfortunately, one of the callers of that function passes the
    address of a smaller data type, cast to fit the type that
    xfs_fs_geometry() requires.  As a result, this can happen:

    Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack is corrupted
    in: f87aca93

    Pid: 262, comm: xfs_fsr Not tainted 2.6.38-rc6-493f3358cb2+ #1

    [<c12991ac>] ? panic+0x50/0x150

    [<f87aca93>] ? xfs_ioc_fsgeometry_v1+0x56/0x5d [xfs]

    Fix this by fixing that one caller to pass the right type and then
    copy out the subset it is interested in.

    Note: This patch is an alternative to one originally proposed by
    Eric Sandeen.

    xfs: prevent leaking uninitialized stack memory in FSGEOMETRY_V1

    commit 3a3675b7f23f83ca8c67c9c2b6edf707fd28d1ba upstream.

    The FSGEOMETRY_V1 ioctl (and its compat equivalent) calls out to
    xfs_fs_geometry() with a version number of 3.  This code path does not
    fill in the logsunit member of the passed xfs_fsop_geom_t, leading to
    the leaking of four bytes of uninitialized stack data to potentially
    unprivileged callers.

    v2 switches to memset() to avoid future issues if structure members
    change, on suggestion of Dave Chinner.

    If the user-provided len is less than the expected offset, the

    size value.  While this isn't be a security issue on x86 because it will

    commit dd65c736d1b5312c80c88a64bf521db4959eded5 upstream.

    The dcdbas driver can do an I/O write to cause a SMI to occur.  The SMI handler
    looks at certain registers and memory locations, so the SMI needs to happen
    immediately.  On some systems I/O writes are posted, though, causing the SMI to
    happen well after the "outb" occurred, which causes random failures.  Following
    the "outb" with an "inb" forces the write to go through even if it is posted.

    fs: call security_d_instantiate in d_obtain_alias V2

    commit 24ff6663ccfdaf088dfa7acae489cb11ed4f43c4 upstream

    While trying to track down some NFS problems with BTRFS, I kept noticing I was
    getting -EACCESS for no apparent reason.  Eric Paris and printk() helped me
    figure out that it was SELinux that was giving me grief, with the following
    denial

    type=AVC msg=audit(1290013638.413:95): avc:  denied  { 0x800000 } for  pid=1772
    comm="nfsd" name="" dev=sda1 ino=256 scontext=system_u:system_r:kernel_t:s0
    tcontext=system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s0 tclass=file

    Turns out this is because in d_obtain_alias if we can't find an alias we create
    one and do all the normal instantiation stuff, but we don't do the
    security_d_instantiate.

    Usually we are protected from getting a hashed dentry that hasn't yet run
    security_d_instantiate() by the parent's i_mutex, but obviously this isn't an
    option there, so in order to deal with the case that a second thread comes in
    and finds our new dentry before we get to run security_d_instantiate(), we go
    ahead and call it if we find a dentry already.  Eric assures me that this is ok
    as the code checks to see if the dentry has been initialized already so calling
    security_d_instantiate() against the same dentry multiple times is ok.  With
    this patch I'm no longer getting errant -EACCESS values.

Cansado de Linux, Mac e Windows -> HaikuOs Feito para criativos :P

Standard

O HaikuOs é um sistema baseado em BeOs (vide: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/BeOS ). É um sistema diferente, simples e amigável.

Foi lançado recentemente o Alpha 3.

Haiku R1 Alpha 3 Release Notes

These are the release notes for Haiku R1 Alpha 3, our third official release. For this third alpha release, we strove to provide an improved version of Haiku that is more stable, introduces more features for both the end-user and developer, and has a greater chance of properly booting on more hardware.

We have tried hard to make this release as good as possible. Still there are a few known issues and missing features, some of them collected below. Please keep in mind that this is alpha software, which means it is not yet feature complete and still contains known and unknown bugs. While we are mostly confident in the stability of this release, we do not provide any assurances against data loss.

Another goal that has driven the release of the Alpha 3 was to provide current and future Haiku developers an updated and (mostly) stable operating system to work on their software projects. Therefore we have included the basic build tools, along with clients for cvs, svn, git and hg. This release of Haiku is capable of building and running binaries using either GCC 2 or GCC 4. The use of GCC 4 is discouraged however if not absolutely necessary, as no API compatibility is guaranteed with future versions of Haiku.

System Requirements

Haiku currently only works on x86 systems. Minimum memory required is 128 MB. If compiling Haiku within itself, 1 GB of memory is recommended. Haiku has been tested to work on CPUs as slow as a Pentium II 400 MHz, and requires as little as 700 MB of drive space.

New Features

This is a glimpse into some of the more notable improvements and additions to Haiku, since the previous release, R1 Alpha 2. It should be noted that over 950 bugs closed as fixed since R1 Alpha 2. Additionally, more than 250 subtle bugs have been fixed, which were discovered by Coverity.

Improved read (and write support) for various file systems, which includes btrfs, exFAT, ext2, ext3, ext4, NTFS, UDF, and others.

Various enhancements for hardware support, such as IO-APIC, ACPI, video drivers, network drivers and USB.

Gutenprint is utilized to provide additional printer support.

Partial fallback for displaying unsupported glyphs of any font. For example some Japanese and Chinese characters will now display.

MediaKit’s support for decoding and encoding file formats has been improved.

Addition of a general MIDI SoundFont by Tim Brechbill which enables support for many BeOS MIDI applications.

New IMAP implementation. Mails are now synchronized with the server and not just downloaded like in POP3.

The mail daemon replacement (MDR) and parts of the Mail Kit have been rewritten. MDR crashes are fixed now.

Integration of StackAndTile, which was originally pioneered by the University of Auckland (available via setdecor SATDecorator).

Additional window management controls for moving and resizing windows (CTRL + CMD + first mouse button and CTRL + CMD + second mouse button).

Update of the secondary and experimental compiler to GCC 4.4.4 (available via setgcc gcc4).

Support for weak symbols and symbol preemption in GCC 4.

The user interfaces of several programs have been overhauled and include BootManager, DiskUsage, MediaPlayer, ReadOnlyBootPrompt and ShowImage.

The locale support was extended and consolidated to use a single backend (ICU) for both Haiku’s native and POSIX’s locale API. The interface and reliability of the Locale and Time preflet were improved considerably.

More applications now use Haiku’s Layout API, making their GUI’s more resilient to font changes and localization. Furthermore, the layout API has continued to progress towards being stable and public. However, this API is not finalized: it may change at any time, so developers beware.

Support for PAE (Physical Address Extension) was implemented, so that physical memory beyond 4 GiB is used now.

Missing Features

Haiku does not yet support WPA encryption for wireless networking, only WEP encryption is supported.

Package management is still being developed and is not included in this release. For the time being, a temporary script is included to help install a small set software (available via installoptionalpackage).

USB keyboards attached to OHCI or to USB 2.0 hubs do not work in Kernel Debugging Land (KDL). They need to be connected to UHCI root ports to work in KDL. Also note that when entering the kernel debugger by means of a panic it is possible that the keyboard does not work. To work around this issue you can manually enter the kernel debugger once and leave it again to enable the USB keyboard.

Known Issues

LiveCD and first boot performance: After an initial installation or a boot into LiveCD mode, some background tasks are executed to finish the installation setup. This is known to degrade performance. On hard disk installs this usually is not a problem as the tasks are done quickly. In LiveCD mode the performance hit is more prominently visible due to the usually bad seek performance on CDs. Since the CD is read-only, this setup takes place on every start of the LiveCD. On writable media it will only be done once, so further boots shouldn’t experience the same delays.

Font rendering, while improved due to the expired font hinting patent, is still not optimal. Due to the uncertain situation about patents, the official release has disabled code, which is known to be patented. This sadly includes the subpixel code used by FreeType. Once the situation is better understood and a decision has been made, subpixel font rendering may get re-enabled for official releases.

Haiku’s ACPI support, which is enabled by default, might cause problems on some hardware. ACPI can be disabled in the boot loader’s safe mode options menu.

Copying large amounts of data from faster to slower disk drives (like USB sticks) can cause the system to start paging.

The Haiku boot loader has been reported to hang on some hardware.

Support for localization/internationalization is still a work in progress. Some applications might only be partially translated and have issues with long strings in languages other than English.

Firmware for some wireless network cards need user acknowledgement, prior to their intsallation. This includes Broadcom 43xx, Intel ipw2100, Intel ipw2200 and Marvell 88W8335. As a temporary measure, a script is included to assist in this process (available via install-wifi-firmwares.sh).
