AlmaLinux Announces ELevate Project: Migrate/Upgrade Between Any RHEL-based Distro!

Tags: , , , , , , , Date/Time: October 20, 2021 @ 5:26 pm, by raindog308

Alma Linux LogoAlmaLinux announced today the ELevate Project, which is their initiative to allow users to upgrade or migrate between any RHEL- based distro.  Using this technology, currently you can easily move between CentOS 7.x and any of these distros:

  • AlmaLinux 8.x
  • CentOS Stream 8
  • Oracle Linux 8.x
  • Rocky Linux 8.x

“Until today, it simply wasn’t possible to dream of migrations like these and that need has become very acute for CentOS users,” said Jack Aboutboul, community manager for AlmaLinux.

What he’s referring to is CentOS’s change from being downstream of RHEL (and essentially an exact copy of it) to being an upstream dev playground with no guarantee of RHEL compatibility.

Jack Aboutboul continued: “This is a cause the whole community can get behind. We’re often asked if there are any plans for collaboration between the various downstream projects and this is a great example of something that everyone, AlmaLinux, Oracle and Rocky communities can contribute to. We’re working with upstream on the tooling while creating a PES that is free and open to all for this reason. Oracle was very gracious to contribute a nice chunk of the metadata set and our hope is that the Rocky community and developers will be receptive as well.”

The ELevate code is released under the Apache 2.0 License.  You can learn more at the AlmaLinux Elevate site.

Why Do My Files Have Quotes in the Them When I Use ‘ls’?

Tags: , , , Date/Time: October 20, 2021 @ 12:00 am, by raindog308

Bin LSIf you’ve upgraded to a recent Linux version, you may have noticed a change in the output of your ls commands.

Specifically, files that have spaces or other special characters in them are quoted.

For example, when you run ‘ls -l’, your directory listings that used to look like this:

# ls -1
Screen Shot 1.png
Screen Shot 2.png
Screen Shot 3.png
Screen Shot 4.png

Now, depending on what version of Linux you’re running, they look like this (Using ls -l here for variety but ls -1 or plain ls will show the same):

# ls -l
total 37044
-rwxr--r-- 1 andrew andrew  9468684 Oct 18 09:41 'Screen Shot 1.png'
-rwxr--r-- 1 andrew andrew  8468468 Oct 18 09:41 'Screen Shot 2.png'
-rwxr--r-- 1 andrew andrew  9473048 Oct 18 09:41 'Screen Shot 3.png'
-rwxr--r-- 1 andrew andrew 10514923 Oct 18 09:41 'Screen Shot 4.png'

In fact, you may first encounter this when you copy something from Windows or macOS (where spaces in filenames are more common) to Linux, and then wonder if Linux has suddenly added quotes to your file names.

It has not.  The GNU Project did this to you.  Allow me to explain, and how you can eliminate this idiocy.


1 in 10 Chance of an “Internet Apocalypse” Before 2031

Tags: , , , Date/Time: October 19, 2021 @ 12:00 am, by raindog308

Solar StormScientists at the University of California at Irvine predict that if a rare solar superstorm comes to pass, it could cause a months-long outage for key parts of the Internet. Particularly vulnerable are undersea cables – approximately 1.3 million miles’ worth, on which intercontinental Internet depends.

Solar storms are not new, but obviously disrupting the Earth’s magnetic field didn’t matter much in the 18th century. In our current day and age, with so much of human activity dependent on the Internet, disruptions to these vital links could be devastating particularly if they are long-lasting.

The odds of this happening are between 1.6% and 12% per decade. However, the last time there was a major solar superstorm was 1921 (exactly 100 years ago). If a similar storm took place today, up to 40 million people could be without electricity for up to two years. Under the ocean, Internet links are made up of millions of miles of cable, which transmit signals in the form of light. Every 30-90 miles there is a repeater to amplify the signals, and these repeaters are vulnerable to electrical disruptions.
