Looking for news about Linux updates? The is only one source of Linux update news that is 100% credible and authoritative. Guessed what it is? It’s the Git repository. The Linux Git repository can easily be browsed from the command line at your own leisure. To clone the Linux Git repository to your system, just do the following in a directory of your choice: $ git clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git Let’s head into our clone of the Linux repo: $ cd linux To view recent changes, you can browse the log like so: $ git log –patch You will be dropped into the default pager for your system. This is mostly likely going to be less(1). You can use the h key while inside less(1) for user instructions. Most Git commits come with quite a descriptive commit message. If you’re unsure about something, you can always use your search engine of choice to look it up. While this may not directly be related to Linux update news, one particularly useful directory in the repo is Documentation; there is a wealth of information to be found here. Every user and developer should become intimately familiar with this directory of the repository. Remember to frequently update your clone of the repo to stay up-to-date; updates are easily done with: $ git pull The official Linux Git repository makes heavy use of tags. You can list all tags like so: $ git tag –list You can change the working directory to a previous tag like so: $ git checkout v5.8 Note that this will put you in detached HEAD state. You can use git branch -vv to see how that looks on your terminal. You can quickly get back to the most recent commit by doing: $ git checkout master A simple check with git branch -vv will show you that everything’s back to ‘normal’. If you read a piece on news on the internet, have a look at what the repository has to say about it. You can perform regular expression searches like so: $ git log –patch –grep=’regex_here’ There is another big advantage to keeping up with the Linux Git repository: the internet is awash with outlets that engage in FUD and concern trolling. Having an authoritative source to cross-check information is the best way to defend yourself against misinformation. Have a great weekend.
