Renegade Solutions has announced the availability of scientific instrumentation libraries for Linux. Currently offered are a basic driver for the Epix Silicon Video MUX series of video frame grabbing boards, a driver for a low budget serial port D/A and A/D device and a driver for a custom DSP board based on the TI C25 and C50 series DSPs.
The Silicon Video MUX family of framegrabbers provide up to 752x480 8 bit grayscale images making it suitable for demanding computer vision and research applications. The basic driver package includes a simple GUI program to demonstrate the boards capabilities as well as source code for the library, and is priced at $500. Motif based image editing, processing and analysis software is also available. The driver for the serial port module also includes a GUI demonstration program and sells for $200. A driver for a low cost DSP board built by FroZen Technologies is also priced at $200.
Renegade Solutions will develop custom drivers for the above hardware, as well as for other instruments. For more information, call Renegade Solutions at (208) 524-6440 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
March 20, 1995—Darwin Open Systems today unveiled the OPEN LOOK, XView and NeWS Archive. This CD-ROM includes the full text of two books from the O'Reilly X series: the previously-unpublished Volume 3, User's Guide, OPEN LOOK edition, and Volume 7, XView Programming Manual. Both are on the CD in PostScript and in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF). There are also many other documents such as FAQs, and man pages for everything (included in troff, cat-able, PostScript and PDF, and usable from the CD-ROM by setting MANPATH). There is source code for the latest XView Toolkit, full source for many other OPEN LOOK programs and games including sample programs from several textbooks, pre-built search indexes for tools such as Glimpse, LQ-Text, viewers for PostScript and PDF, and other goodies. Also included is the full source code for two complete window systems:
The X Window System, Version 11, Release 6, (latest patch Level 11), including XFree86 (3.1.1.), and
The MGR Window System by Steve Uhler of Bellcore.
In addition to the textbooks, tool, and source code, there is an online “tour” of OPEN LOOK, XView, and other parts of the CD-ROM. The Tour is written in validated HTML, usable with Mosaic, Netscape, TkWWW, or your favorite Web viewer. If you are on the Internet, you can follow links to the outside. HTML hyperlinks are provided to the original FTP sources for much of the free software so you will be able to obtain updates, later versions, binaries for other platforms, etc.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
