LXer - Fri, 2016-09-23 17:01
Perl 6 came out in general release around Christmas 2015, and since then I've heard a lot of questions about it, both from people in and out of the Perl community. Jeff Goff is a longtime member of the Perl community and a good friend who's been heavily involved in Perl 6 development, so I asked him a few of the questions from what I've been hearing others ponder.read more

  • 2D Rendering On X11 Remains Barely Faster Than CPU Rendering

    In addition to being the organizer of XDC2016, Martin Peres also participated in several presentations at this week's conference in Helsinki. One of these pesentations by Martin was concerning 2D X.Org acceleration.

    Martin basically presented on that rendering 2D on a modern X.Org Server is barely faster than CPU rendering, unless compositing. While being barely faster, it consumes more power than CPU-only rendering. But the good news is that more and more software is moving away from X-based rendering.

    With the next GTK+ release there will be the GTK Scene Kit, Qt5 already has changed its renderer, and other projects are moving over to purely CPU-based rendering or GPU rendering with projects like Servo's WebRender, Google's Skia, and the new Intel FastUIDraw project.

  • AMD's DAL Was Just Presented At XDC2016, Still Not Clear When It Will Be Mainlined

    Harry Wentland of AMD just presented at the XDC2016 conference about DAL, the big Display Abstraction Layer code-base, which many AMD Linux users have been waiting to see merged in order to have Polaris audio support and this is one of the stepping stones for seeing FreeSync/Adaptive-Sync and other modern display capabilities.

    We have been covering DAL for months since AMD open-sourced it and since then they've been trying to clean it up, remove some redundancies compared to what core DRM offers, etc. DAL is a big piece of the puzzle that's left for getting mainlined so the AMDGPU open-source kernel driver can be closer to feature parity with the closed-source driver and what's provided on Windows.

Is Linux for consumers?

Reddit - Fri, 2016-09-23 14:48

Is Linux superior to, let's say, Windows?

Would consumers like myself benefit from it?

I mean what makes up for the additional complications and compatibility issues?

Who should get it?

4 command-line graphics tools for Linux

LXer - Fri, 2016-09-23 14:44
Images and the command line. They seem an unlikely pair, don't they? There are people who'll tell you that the only way you can manipulate and view graphics is with GUI applications like GIMP.For the most part, they're wrong. Command-line image tools do much of what their GUI counterparts can, and they can do it just as well. Sometimes, especially when dealing with multiple image files or working on an older computer, command-line tools can do a better job.read more
