  • DataBasin - object inspector and updates

    First, the underlying DataBasinKit framework got an important update.

  • In-demand dev skills, understanding licensing, and more open source news
  • Higher ed systems expanding access to open-source materials

    Open-source learning technology is at the core of higher education for institutions that want to reach broader audiences with very strict ideas about how convenient learning should be. But developing these initiatives does not happen quickly or easily. It requires strong leadership in information technology, expertise to determine which solutions work best for a campus, and a financial commitment to making sure the technology is sustainable.

  • Proxmark Pro Proxmark3 Standalone Open Source RFID Tester (video)

    Rysc Corp has unveiled a new open source board in the form of the Proxmark Pro which now offers a true standalone client and RFID test instrument, check out the video below to learn more.

    The Proxmark Pro will feature an FPGA with 5 times the logic cells of the Proxmark3 and will remove the need to switch between HF and LF bit streams during operation, to use developers.

  • ErupteD Brings Vulkan To The D Programming Language

    The D programming language is just the latest to have support for Vulkan alongside C++, Rust (via Vulkano, if you missed that project), Go, and many other modern languages getting bindings for this Khronos Group high performance graphics API. Should you not be familiar with the D language, see Wikipedia.

Phoronix on Graphics

  • A Significant Linux 4.7 Kernel Performance Regression Has Now Been Resolved

    There was a 30~40% drop in some of the SPEC Java benchmarks when using the Linux 4.7 development code, but fortunately this regression has now been discovered and addressed.

  • What You Need To Do To Your Linux System If You Want Open-Source RX 480 Support

    If you are hoping to get your hands on a Radeon RX 480 "Polaris" graphics card when they begin shipping in a few days, here are the upgrades you need to make to your Linux system if you are wanting to make use of the open-source AMD Linux graphics stack.

  • Some Of The AMDGPU Changes Being Worked On For Linux 4.8

    The AMD developers still have a few more weeks to get their new feature material ready for the Linux 4.8 kernel while here is an early look at some of the code merged so far.

    One of the changes we're looking forward to most with the AMDGPU DRM of Linux 4.8 is the OverDrive overclocking support. Finally the ability with the open-source AMD stack to overclock your GPU easily, but it's only supported for AMDGPU-capable hardware. There are commits though in the 4.8 W.I.P. branch for enabling the overclocking for Sea Islands with that experimental AMDGPU support. Another addition since the original AMDGPU overclocking support is there's now support for video memory overclocking too. Similar to the GPU core re-clocking, the memory overclocking can be done up to 20% in 1% steps.

Program that makes a tray icon

Reddit - Sun, 2016-06-26 18:55

I'm curious if anyway is aware of a program that will show an icon in the system tray, and be manipulable from a shell script.

Two examples of uses I would have for this is

  1. Calling it from a shell script that changes the refresh rate of my monitor (I have a high refresh rate monitor that I turn down when not gaming to reduce my graphics card clock speeds) to visually indicate whether the monitor is at a high or low refresh rate.

  2. Show whether various audio devices are muted in Pulseaudio or not. I'm aware that there are some tray icons for Pulseaudio specifically, but they generally only indicate mute for the main audio device, whereas I have several devices, and a few null-sinks that I would like to have separate icons for.

Let Attic Deduplicate and Store your Backups

LXer - Sun, 2016-06-26 17:56
Data loss is one of those things we never want to worry about. To that end we go to great lengths to find new techniques and software packages to ensure those precious bits of data are safely backed up to various local and remote media.

Any developers (use compile code, run db's, VMs) here who use power management like tlp, powertop? How much does it affect performance/development?

Reddit - Sun, 2016-06-26 17:06

I just bought a new laptop (Lenovo X1 Carbon 4th gen, quad core i7, 16GB RAM, PCI-Nvme SSD, openSUSE LEAP) and I'll be using it for Java/DB/Web dev, and simultaneously running Tomcat, MongoDB (server), MySQL, Play Framework, Spring, Hibernate, Grunt-served front end along with IntelliJ, Firefox, chrome and a UML app.

Performance is very important when running those all at the same time. But I'd also like better battery life. What's been everyone's experience?
