Well, saw the news item on /., but it didn’t really make a connection until I hit the BeBox Zone. Our BeBoxes - the older, authentic BeBoxes - could have a security problem. Seems it may be possible to determine data being processed by watching LEDs. Sound crazy? Well, the BeBox part might be, since it is only processing CPU usage, not data being shot across, say, a network interface. But hit link to the actual paper from the BeBox Zone if you want to see what we are talking about.
If you haven’t heard of ReOS yet, you should check it out. It’s in the veins of Software Valet and helps manage the install of replacement components for BeOS (ie, OBOS components).
Now 5Sight has recently added the recently released OpenBeOS patch as a package to the ReOS package manager’s
distribution collection. What does this all mean? Essentially, this means that the OpenBeOS patch is now available to users
for installation in a new manner. See the 5Sight ReOS page or its page on BeBits for more information about what ReOS is and how its package manager works. Also keep in mind that this is “ALPHA” grade software, and is a work in progress.
Nurbana, a 3D modeler for Linux, Windows, BeOS is currently behind on the BeOS version. Roger Andre Lassen wrote in to ask about it, and the response was:
Hello, you are the first to ask about this in a while… I had difficulty getting BeOS working during last version and that is why there is only version 1.02 avail for BeOS and not 1.03. If you can gather a list with at least 25 names on it, then I will schedule a BeOS port for 1.03.1, otherwise it just doesn’t seam feasible.
So there you go, if we gather a list with 25 names, the port will likely happen.
Update - Do not email Roger, email me, and I’ll forward him the list of names interested. Please note, neither I, nor Roger, can answer technical questions about Nurbana, we are only collecting a list of names interested.
We just can’t seem to keep the server up, now can we?! Nutcase has been working on the system, and is settled in at his new apartment/location, so we should see less downtime [crossing fingers].
