Guix deprecating support for the Linux kernel

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/816674/rss

GNU Guix is a transactional package manager and an advanced distribution of
the GNU system which uses the Linux-libre kernel. The project has announced
that Guix now runs natively on GNU/Hurd and the Linux-libre kernel is deprecated. “Running on the Hurd was always a goal for Guix, and supporting multiple kernels is a huge maintenance burden. As such it is expected that the upcoming Guix 1.1 release will be the last version featuring the Linux-Libre kernel. Future versions of Guix System will run exclusively on the Hurd, and we expect to remove Linux-Libre entirely by Guix 2.0.

FSF: HACKERS and HOSPITALS

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/816392/rss

The Free Software Foundation is focusing
on the shortage of medical equipment
and using 3D printers to make
more. “That’s why we’re looking into what we can make with our
in-office Respects Your Freedom (RYF)-certified 3D printers, and we’re
talking to the brand new Mass General Brigham Center for COVID Innovation
so they can direct our efforts. We’re also gathering resources for our
“HACKERS and HOSPITALS” plan at the LibrePlanet wiki page, and if you have expertise, 3D printers, or supplies to contribute, please contact Michael via [email protected] If you do not have the means to produce medical gear and you still want to help, research can be done from anywhere with only a computer and an Internet connection. Add any projects that are freely licensed working towards helping with COVID-19 to the wiki!

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/816386/rss

The Mozilla Open Source Support Program (MOSS) has launched
a COVID-19 Solutions Fund, which will provide awards of up to $50,000 each
to open source technology projects which are responding to the COVID-19
pandemic in some way. “As part of the COVID-19 Solutions Fund, we will accept applications that are hardware (e.g., an open source ventilator), software (e.g., a platform that connects hospitals with people who have 3D printers who can print parts for that open source ventilator), as well as software that solves for secondary effects of COVID-19 (e.g., a browser plugin that combats COVID related misinformation).
