After finishing up this weekend's AMDGPU R9 Fury + RX 480 benchmarks of DRM-Next for material that will land with Linux 4.8 along with RX 480 overclocking support, tables turned to run some fresh benchmarks of the Intel DRM-Next code that will premiere in Linux 4.8.
Material queued up so far in DRM-Next for Linux 4.8 includes better DisplayPort++ dongle support, L3 cache tuning, continued GuC work, and a whole lot more. There is also GVT-g para-virtualized GPU support.
The promising Unvanquished open-source first person shooter game has been in development for years, is powered by the Daemon Engine as a distant derivative of id Tech 3, and has shown much potential from the engine to artwork. However, the past few months have been eerily quiet.
The last Unvanquished release was Alpha 50, which came in April. Normally, Unvanquished Alpha releases have come the first/second Sunday of every month, but now we've missed that for May, June, and it looks like July too.
It's been a while since we last heard anything from Guild Software, the developer of the Vendetta Online 3D space combat MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) for PCs and mobile platforms.
The Vendetta Online 1.8.380 update was released a few days ago, and it promises lots of goodies, but only for PC platforms, including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. The rest of the supported platforms, such as Android and iOS, will get the new features in a future update.
About two weeks ago, some visitors of the openSUSE Conference enjoyed playing openSUSE Jeopardy.
The Germany-based SUSE Linux and Microsoft have inked a new deal that focuses on the public cloud business and has updated terms and commitments, according to Kristin Kinan, global alliance director for public cloud at SUSE.
This supercedes earlier agreements between the two companies, Kinan said, in response to queries from iTWire.
A while back, I found myself in need of two webservers that would terminate TLS (with different rules). I wanted to run some custom code I’d written (which uses TLS peer authentication), and also nginx on port 443.
The best way I figured out how to do this was to write a tool to sit on port 443, and parse TLS Client Hello packets, and dispatch to the correct backend depending on the SNI name.
The developers of the NAS4Free open-source and free embedded storage BSD-based distribution for GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and other UNIX-like systems, announced the release of NAS4Free 10.3.0.3.
We reported a few days ago that PCLinuxOS tester Ika has announced the release of his PCLinuxOS 64 Xfce 2016.07 and PCLinuxOS 64 LXDE 2016.07 Community Edition operating systems.
MiniTube is beautiful, lightweight and a native YouTube client. With MiniTube you can watch YouTube videos by typing keyword into the search-box and MiniTube will immediately loads the results. It offers two type of searches: channel search and keyword search. It provides endless video stream, playback on MiniTube is smooth and instant, without a noticeable buffering time, as I tested. Minitube does not require the Flash Player.
FFmpeg is a popular multimedia framework, that enables the users to easily ncode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play audio and video content.
Slightly later than on monthly schedule but Weblate 2.7 is out today. This release brings improvements to the API and is first to officially support wlc a command line client for Weblate.
Zbigniew Konojacki informs Softpedia today, July 10, 2016, about the availability for download of the Beta of the 4MLinux 19.0 operating system, which will be released later this year.
It's Sunday night, so guess what? Yes, that's right, Linus Torvalds has just announced the availability of the seventh Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 4.7 kernel branch.
We hope you are enjoying your time on our site and we also want to make it better. Its been a long time for this so today we are bringing seventh segment of "Introduction with Linux Distro" series.
Sometimes I might rant about a set of glitches I found in a Linux desktop. I am blamed of using some certain distro. "That is a toy distro and is known to have problems."
Then I might come across some problem close to hardware, such as suspend/hibernate not working properly, or display brightness going multiple steps with one keypress. This time I am blamed for using the wrong hardware. "That OEM is not working closely enough with the kernel developers. Use Dell, Lenovo or System76 laptop."
This leads to a situation where I have to distro-hop and computer-hop to find the perfect combination in which the stars are aligned. Maybe some young MacGyvers actually enjoy this kind of tinkering and exploring, but eventually it starts to get tiring and just unprofessional. I also lose time and money.
I am asking, has Linux gotten already too picky about software and hardware? Where is the dream of Linux fitting like a glove on any computer? A smooth experience like designed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.submitted by /u/jones_supa
