Phoronix: There are a lot of other exciting items on the roadmap for developers working on Mozilla's Servo next-generation engine written in Rust.
Yesterday Feral Interactive published the Linux system requirements for Tomb Raider. They mentioned Mesa 11.2 support on the AMD side, but the graphics card's minimum requirement is very different from what's actually the minimum requirement.
I finally decided to check out Super Cane Magic ZERO, a game I purchased on a whim back in January. The game is rather silly and I actually quite like it.
Duskers is the rather unique strategy and survival game in procedurally generated worlds. You pilot drones into spaceships and figure out what's going on.
Last week, an extensive comment attributed to DHS was posted on the open source policy's GitHub page.
Open source allows users to openly share and collaborate on code and offers advantages in terms of cost, control and innovation. Many big tech companies use open source in one form or another today.
When it comes to performing ongoing maintenance, stomping out crises, or scoping new projects, most administrators either execute tasks manually or write a script to automate the process. But the really smart ones look for a capable tool to do the job.
Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation, will take centre stage at ITS America 2016 San Jose on Tuesday, 14 June as the keynote speaker for day two of the event, The Infrastructure of Things.
CoSoSys develops data-loss prevention products for computers and mobile devices that access and store sensitive data. The company’s Endpoint Protector 4 features device control to manage Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux machines.
Recently, CoSoSys joined The Linux Foundation and released a private beta version of Data Loss Prevention for Linux, which is available upon request for Ubuntu, openSUSE, CentOS, and Red Hat. The company is also investigating the possibility of expanding its technology to help manage wearable devices.
While our updated Linux.com boasts a clean look and fresh interface for our users, there’s also an entirely new infrastructure stack that we’re happy to take you on a tour of. Linux.com serves over two million page views a month: providing news and technical articles as well as hosting a dynamic community of logged-in users in our forums and Q&A parts of our site.
The previous platform running Linux.com suffered from several scalability problems. Most significantly, it had no native ability to cache and re-serve the same pages to anonymous visitors, but beyond that, the underlying web application and custom code was also slow to generate each individual pageview.
The Wine Staging team announced a few minutes ago, April 19, 2016, that the Wine Staging 1.9.8 development release is now available for download via the official channels.
Time for another release! Wine Staging 1.9.8 is now available. This version contains improvements for 64 bit support and MSYS2.
Adding in more experimental patches over last week's Wine 1.9.8 development release is the routine Wine-Staging update.
Wine-Staging 1.9.8 is carrying more patches to improve support for running 64-bit Windows software -- particularly on OS X, there is improved compatibility with MSYS2, and a variety of other improvements that are ready in the Wine-Staging realm but not yet ready to be mainlined in Wine.
Already it's looking like the research from the recently covered The Linux Scheduler: a Decade of Wasted Cores that called out the Linux kernel in being a poor scheduler is having an impact.
While we haven't seen any major upstream improvements yet to the Linux kernel scheduler, it looks like some parties are beginning to take note and better analyze the scheduler for possible performance improvements. Intel's Clear Linux distribution that's known for being focused on high out-of-the-box performance (even faster Intel graphics) already took action and landed some changes to their kernel's scheduler.
ostechnix: Good starting points for those new to Docker.
Meizu, based in the city of Zhuhai in the Guangdong region of China, is not a company or a name most US consumers are familiar with.
Compared with some of the other Chinese giants I have been dealing with in this series, such as Xiaomi, Huawei, and ZTE, Meizu is downright scrappy, reporting about $17M of revenue on $452M of net income according to their public filings from 2013.
The VAR Guy: RMS is still a voice to be reckoned with ...
