Just received this in an email this morning: Important changes to the MR1750 Due to new FCC requirements, we're making changes to the way our dual-band devices work. Starting today, any new orders of MR1750 to the United States will be a modified version to comply the the new FCC regulations. The restrictions are the same as those on the OM5P-AC device, and include: Custom firmware versions can no longer be loaded onto the device. SSH access is now disabled for networks located within the United States. Custom.sh scripts must be approved and hosted by Open Mesh to ensure they do not take the device out of compliance. This change currently only affects resellers and distributors located in the USA. Existing devices are not affected. For international resellers, please order part MR1750-INTL. Once current stock is depleted, the FCC version will be available globally. Note that the hardware of the two models is identical. We're strong believers in open source software and it pains us to make this change. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to exclude only RF parameters with an open shell access or custom firmware. We very much would have preferred to keep it open but could find no way to reliably do so. In the end, we had no choice but to eliminate shell access and custom firmware or stop selling the product. We've been working with many customers over the past few months to prepare for this change, and include the most common firmware modifications into our base firmware. If you have concerns with this transition, please get in touch. Please note that our 2.4 GHz-only devices (the OM2P and OM2P-HS) are not affected by the new regulations and remain open. Does anyone know anything about this? I know the FCC was talking about this, but I do not see any articles about an actual ruling on the ban coming into effect.

Any advise on a good PCIe sound card that is well supported under Linux? My Realtek on-board audio actually works fine in Linux but sounds sub-par and has been giving me lots of trouble under Windows. The Windows but only matters during certain edge cases (LAN parties) but I'm tried of dorking around with it. I'd like an audio device that works everywhere (preferably that is gaming centric). I don't need any pro-audio stuff - I already use a FocusRite Saffire Pro 40 for music makins which I typically use under OS X. I can't use it at a LAN party easily and it doesn't work under Linux as a standard audio device (I haven't been able to make it work when playing games for instance).

Before I begin with my little rant, I just want to say that I love Linux which is, in my opinion, one of the greatest human achievements in history. The idea that we made something so complex with the help of thousands of people from all around the world, still blows my mind everyday. With that out-of-the-way, let's move on to my rant. I work as a sysadmin/IT guy for a medium-sized call center. We are a mainly windows shop, with a few Linux servers used for VoIP things (Asterisk). We are in the process of setting up a campaign for a new client, who demanded workstations running CentOS 6. The agents are going to be using a proprietary application based on JAVA. I was very excited about the fact that finally I was going to be working with Linux desktop for this new client. But the excitement quickly faded after I began setting up the test machines. Let's say that I got a glimpse of the reasons people have about staying away from Linux. The problems started showing up right away. First it seems there is a bug with the way CentOS 6 handles Xserver and the graphics cards on our desktops, I of course thought the solution was a quick google search away, but have not been able to get it working with the proposed solutions I found. It turns out this bug does not show on CentOS 7 but the client for some reason insists on using version 6. Second, the client requirements (or my boss's, not sure) call for AD authentication, which I thought was easy to set up. There are many ways to carry out this, so I followed one of the guides available online and it doesn't work for my environment. Try another one, rinse, repeat. By now I have spent a lot of time trying to get that to work, which it did. But I inadvertently changed something and it doesn't work anymore. So frustrating. Third, and this is JAVA's fault, we are getting new PC's different from the ones we currently use. The provider sent us a demo machine so I promptly set up the client's software, only to find out that for some unknown reason audio does not work. The OS plays sounds flawlessly but the java app doesn't. So of to another round of googling and testing. I normally love these kinds of bugs, when playing around in my personal time. But it's another whole story when you have a deadline and all these littles thing keep showing up. Now I understand a bit more the people who stick to windows, because they just want to use their computers to get their work done. If I were using windows, I would have been done ages ago. I realize that these are not Linux's fault, but rather manufacturer's lack of driver support, java's poor cross-platform implementation, Window's implementation of LDAP or kerberos or whatever and my incompetence but to another kind of user these would be seen as Linux's problems. Hopefully in the long run, using Linux will prove beneficial, only time will tell. TL;DR: I realized I'm not the guru I think I am. submitted by /u/dguerre [link] [comments]

Hey penguins, long time Linux user here. I want to know if there are any ways to install any form of Linux (preferably a desktop version) on this entertainment device. I'm trying to find the specs of the device, in the meanwhile the questions are "Is it possible to install any form of Linux into Jadoo 3?" "What are the specification of the Jadoo 3 device?" Thanks! submitted by /u/KatzenGaming [link] [comments]

I have a question. Earlier this year I read a post about BMW using GPL licensed code, and it piqued my interest in it. I noticed WhatsApp is using a library since not too long ago that is GPL licensed. They described using it in a technical white paper. I sent WhatsApp an email with this content: According to the WhatsApp Encryption Overview technical white paper (April 4, 2016) WhatsApp now uses the Signal Protocol library: "The Signal Protocol library used by WhatsApp is Open Source, available here: https://github.com/whispersystems/libsignal-protocol-java/" The Signal Protocol library is "licensed under the GPLv3" (https://github.com/WhisperSystems/libsignal-protocol-java/blob/master/README.md). Assuming it is known what is implicated by using GPLv3 licensed code, I hereby am requesting the WhatsApp source code that is associated with the Signal Protocol library. A URL suffices. I've sent it on the 14th of April, and I haven't received a response. Am I in my right to request this anyway? submitted by /u/WalrusTheSailor [link] [comments]
