There are different ways to manage virtual machines (VMs) running on KVM hypervisor. For example, virt-manager is a popular GUI-based front-end for VM management. However, if you would like to use KVM on a headless server, GUI-based solutions will not be ideal. In fact, you can create and manage KVM VMs purely from the command line using kvm command-line wrapper script. Alternatively, you can use virsh which is an easier-to-use command-line user interface for managing guest VMs. Underneath virsh, it communicates wtih libvirtd service which can control several different hypervisors including KVM, Xen, QEMU, LXC and OpenVZ.
Debian GNU/Linux founder Ian Murdock has died. He was 42. Murdock is best known for launching the open-source distro in 1993. Just last month, he joined the technology startup Docker in San Francisco. On Monday afternoon, he posted a string of distressing and erratic tweets, revealing he had been arrested by police near his home in the city, and that he was accused of assaulting an officer. Murdock was also threatening to kill himself. After people reached out to him, he appeared to calm down, vowing instead to clear his name. Murdock died that evening. His Twitter account has since been disabled.
Once new kernel passes the test system, Ubuntu offers you to install it through its update system. At the same time, old kernel remains in the system.

The original Raspberry Pi Model B and its successors put a programmable computer within reach of anyone with $20-35 to spend. Since 2012, millions of people have used a Raspberry Pi to get their first experience of programming, but we still meet people for whom cost remains a barrier to entry. At the start of this year, we began work on an even cheaper Raspberry Pi to help these people take the plunge.
