Valuable News – 2020/10/26

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

    Cześć, czy na takiej płycie głównej SiFive HiFive Unmatched pod procesor ARM, mogę zbudować mini PC pod systemy Linux i BSD bez ukrytych trojanów sprzętowych w chipsetach płyt głównych intela, czyli to słynne IME? Podobno cały ten podsystem u intela to system Minix i może ci mikrofon oraz kamerkę uruchomić bez udziału naszego systemu. Rozumiem że w procesorach hardware open source RISC-V w połączeniu z tą płytą główną, wszystko będzie działać od ręki bez sterowników własnościowych?

      Fajna plytka, przypomnij mi o niej jak bedzie 10 razy tansza i w formacie Raspberry Pi 🙂

      Teoretycznie nie powinno byc tam dodatkowych ‘przyjaciol’ jak IME.
