Open webOS gets a website all its own, Nyx hardware abstraction layer gets a rel

a continues, with today seeing the release of the . As described on the nyx-lib GitHub repository, "Nyx is the webOS portability layer used to isolate the remainder of webOS from dependencies on the hardware and core OS upon which it is running." Essentially what that means is that Nyx picks up where the drops off.

So while open source kernel integrates a number of Android drivers and the like, Nyx takes it a step further for Open webOS, enabling the OS to run successfully on an even greater variety of hardware. And since Nyx is open source like the rest of Open webOS eventually will be, it's conceivable that it could be adapted in conjunction with the Linux Standard Kernel to enable other operating systems to run on other hardware. Not that we'd want that - we want webOS, of course. How exactly Nyx works, well, that's over our heads here. Dammit Jim, we're bloggers, not programmers! All we know is that we're glad to see it released and excited by its potential. There's a wide world of excellent hardware out there running less than optimal operating systems, and we want them to run webOS. That's our hope, now that we've been reduced to dreaming about a day where webOS hardware is produced again.

Today also saw the launch of a new website for Open webOS: openwebosproject.org. The new site is styled very much after the old Palm.com and the current webOS Developer Center, and right now serves more as an introduction for the uninitiated and a portal to content on other sites. But eventually it could be more. Not that we'd recommend you go somewhere else to get the latest on Open webOS. You're already reading this, so clearly you're smart enough to know where to look.

Nyx, for the record, is yet another Greek goddess (joining , , and ). She's the goddess of the night, and is only seen in the shadows and just a glimpse at that. An appropriate name, we suppose, for a hardware abstraction layer that's supposed to do it's job without being seen or heard.

      In the specifications of this LaserTV it is shown that WebOS 6.0 should be installed on this device.
      The latest Device Firmware Version is 3.01.02 and i am missing the RTL+ App (Germany) which should be available with WebOS 6.0 
      So any info when there will be a "real" WebOS 6.0 available on the Cinebeam HU915EQE?

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!
