Xiaomi Redmi Pro launched – Everything you need to know

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-07-27 12:53

Xiaomi is well known for their range of affordable smartphones and tablets, and the company continues to grow their device portfolio with some great options. After much anticipation, Xiaomi has finally taken the wraps off their latest smartphone offering at a launch event in Beijing earlier today. Here’s everything we know about the Xiaomi Redmi Pro!

The Redmi Pro features a full metal unibody construction with a brushed metal finish, and up front is a 2.5D glass that covers the 5.5-inch Full HD OLED display. The change to OLED, from the usually standard in this price range IPS LCD, is a nice touch, and should provide a more vivid and pleasing viewing experience.

Multi Boot problem!?

Reddit - Wed, 2016-07-27 12:32

Dear community, currently having tought times to make multiboot.

I got 2 physical discs /dev/sda - /dev/sda1 - Windows 10 - /dev/sda2 - Windows 7 /dev/sdb -/dev/sdb1 - Debian (Grub2)

Having problem with finding windows 7 entry in grub2 I used update-grub command for automatic entry find but Windows 7 is not there. Also When I try to boot up Windows 10 with grub after short loading of windows it says Innaccesible boot device and restarts . Maybe its problem that I installed Grub2 to second disk where only Linux is? I dont know please give me your advice ! :) Thank you

Why you should avoid vanity metrics and measure what matters

LXer - Wed, 2016-07-27 12:20
Metrics. Measures. How high? How low? How fast? How slow? Ever since the dawn of humankind, we've had an innate and insatiable desire to measure and compare. We started with the Egyptian cubit and the Mediterranean traders' grain in the 3rd millennium BC. Today we have clicks per second, likes, app downloads, stars, and a zillion other ways to measure what we do.read more

ura and the Challenges of Open Source Design

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-07-27 12:01

Elio Qoshi is the person behind ura, a fascinating design studio dedicated to improving design in free and open source projects. As part of that mission, ura works with projects of all budgets. When we talk about open source, we’re usually talking code first and then—maybe—documentation second. Design is often an after-thought. But as designers like Elio get involved in open source culture, that order could eventually change.

Bodhi 4.0.0 Alpha Release

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-07-27 11:29

Not only is our first 4.0.0 alpha release here – but it is here relatively on schedule. If all goes according to plan we will have something stamped as stable before September hits. I would just like to be clear that this is far from a polished / finished product. I would encourage anyone wanting to write a review to wait to do so until our stable release. If you are not someone who is interested in helping find issues please wait as well.

Games for GNU/Linux

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-07-27 11:20
  • Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II (new port!) released on Steam for Linux

    Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II are all now available on Steam for Linux. Overlord II is also a brand new port today!

    Note: You may have issues if you previously purchased them from bundles and other random stores. VP has reached out to Codemasters to add Linux to them. If you're only buying it now, you will be fine.

  • Epic Games founder thinks Microsoft will essentially break Steam in later versions of Windows 10

    Also, for the amount of complaints Mr Sweeney has, maybe it's time for him to be productive about it and start moving his company towards an open platform. Anyone know an open platform? Lin-something? Oh yes, Linux, that's it. Linux gives you SteamOS too remember now.

    Only Unreal Tournament (the new one) looks like it will have Epic's support and possibly not even officially. The Linux version has been seriously lagging behind the Windows version, repeatedly breaking with major graphical issues and it still has no launcher on Linux. It may still be early, but they don't seem like they're really putting any effort into it.

  • The Talos Principle updated with more Vulkan stability and performance

    Croteam have continued developing their Vulkan backend for The Talos Principle and have pushed the last beta to stable and released another beta with more Vulkan work.

  • Death Road to Canada released on Steam with Linux support, some thoughts

    Death Road to Canada is a brand new Linux game that released on Steam recently and a GOL user was kind enough to send me a copy to take a look. It's a randomly generated road trip with Zombies with lots of encounters and annoying people to find.

    I've been having more fun with this than I probably should have. Exploring random abandoned "Y'all marts", dismembering zombies and watching their brains and other organs fly out is grim and hilarious. What's even more grim is walking over those organs then squishes them!

  • Mojang working on new launcher for Minecraft, Linux might not see support [Ed: Microsoft loves Linux again. After killing GNU/Linux client for Skype now it does this... Microsoft loves Linux so much that not only does it not port software to GNU/Linux but it also buys cross-platform software, removes ports. I can feel the ‘love’.]

    For those still playing Minecraft, you may know that Mojang is working on a new launcher that doesn't use Java (hooray!), but it might not run on Linux (boo!).

  • HaxeFlixel, a free and open source cross-platform game framework needs funds on IndieGoGo

    HaxeFlixel, a free and open source cross-platform game framework that was used in the creation of Defender's Quest is needing a bit of funding on IndieGoGo.

    They need only $3,000 (even more helps obviously), as it's for a full time developer to work on it for a year. The core HaxeFlixel contributors are providing $3,000 themselves, so crowdfunding is just to top him up essentially.

    For the past decade NVIDIA GPUs have shipped with a proprietary micro-controller they've called Falcon (also for Nouveau users you may recall it through "FUC" for the Falcon micro-controller), but a next-gen controller is being built now for future NVIDIA GPUs and it's going to utilize the RISC-V ISA.

    Wayland's Weston reference compositor picked up support for some new features this morning.

    Finally landing within Weston Git this morning is the longstanding relative pointer protocol. The Wayland relative pointer protocol is currently an unstable protocol and after numerous mailing list patch series is finally in Weston Git. Relative pointer support is important for first person shooter games and other applications.

    The usercopy protection was sent in today for pulling into the Linux 4.8 kernel.

    This user-copy protection support isn't about any form of digital rights management but rather about safeguarding objects being copied to/from user-space. I covered this work in more detail a few days ago in Hardened Usercopy Appears Ready To Be Merged For Linux 4.8.

    Shingled Magnetic Recording is a magnetic storage tech used by HDDs with high storage density.
