HP/Gram donates five super hefty servers to WebOS Ports

. Having spent the time building Open webOS for the Galaxy Nexus

, I have an inkling of the kind of power needed to make things happen in a timely fashion - using a virtual machine with two 2.6GHz cores and 4GB of RAM committed to the processes it took at least three hours for my computer to piece things together, and that was just once. Imagine doing that over and over again to test changes made and you have an idea of how much time is spent just staring at a Terminal window that says "preparing runqueue".

HP's looking to make things easier for WebOS Ports. Two years ago

. These servers start at $1827.00 each, but as they're each configured with 12-cores worth of processors, a mind-boggling 256GB of RAM, and 4TB of storage, HP's pushed the value of the entire kit-and-kaboodle to over $40,000. The next

has some pressure to live up to, eh?

Of course, HP's $40,000 gift to WebOS Ports is without strings, and while it's an awesome demonstration of support for the homebrew community and webOS, it's also a means for HP/Gram to help further webOS. By putting more power in the hands of WebOS Ports, the porting process can be accelerated and expanded, Open webOS can get onto more hardware, and more people can be made aware of webOS, and thus increase exposure and the likelihood that somebody makes new hardware meant to run Open webOS. Plus it's just plain good PR to give away servers - 60 processing cores, 1.5TB of RAM (buh...), and 20TB of storage can do a lot of good for the WebOS Ports effort.

      Hi there,
       
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
       
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
       
      Thanks,
       
      PS: Some other related posts on this.

      Merhaba arkadaşlar,
      55LB670V-ZA smart Tv mevcut, Tv açılışta LG logosu bekleme bekleme süresi uzadı. Bazen takılı da kalıyor, TV'yi kapatıp açınca düzeliyor. Bazı formlarda Yazılım güncellemesi yapılması gerekli olduğu belirtilmiş, LG nin kendi işletim ve TV de olan son yazılımı 05.05.70 mevcut webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley) mevcut. Yeni firmware ve webOS sürüm nereden bulabilir ve yükleyebilirim. Yardımcı olursanız çok sevinirim.
      Teşekkürler

      Hello friends,
      55LB670V-ZA smart TV is available, the waiting time on the LG logo screen at the TV startup has been extended. Sometimes it gets stuck, it gets better when the TV is turned off and on. In some forms, it has been stated that it is necessary to update the software, LG's own page and the latest software 05.05.70 available on the TV is webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley). Where can I find and install the new firmware and webOS version. I would be glad if you help.
      Thank you
      Turkey, Istanbul
