Reddit: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Review

Saturday 30th of April 2016 04:56:35 AM

After consistently using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for 4 days I came up with a review. And I did my best to cover almost all the issues and features that I observed.

And, also as I always do, I've added a performance (boot-up speed, memory usage etc) comparison as well.

Thank you.

Reddit: Is Alpine linux messed up, or just me?

Saturday 30th of April 2016 03:29:12 AM

I installed Alpine 3.3, and it's one of the most broken distros I've used in a long time. I can't believe Docker would choose this distro, unless it's something on my end.

Thinks like 'who', and 'last' packages not working right because of musl. ( https://bugs.alpinelinux.org/issues/3282 )

Then there's missing packages... everywhere. Not a single doc on the wiki can be followed as-is. Everything is out of date. I was finally able to get this going by switching to both the 'edge' and 'testing' repositories. Not something I want to do with actual work stuff.

Anyone experience this or is there just something terribly wrong on my end? :P

I get this in Dmesg (and yes i'l be posting this to /r/linux shortly) [ 1481.581095] usb 3-1: Device not responding to setup address. [ 1481.782052] usb 3-1: Device not responding to setup address.

I even tried calibre but it's not got options for the nook glowlight plus yet.

[edit] sorry for the formatting errors... i'm not sure how to change it.... nothing seems to work.

TuxMachines: Yet another GTK+ update

Saturday 30th of April 2016 02:48:38 AM

GTK+ 3.20 was released a while ago; we’re up to 3.20.3 now. As I tried to explain in earlier posts here and here, this was a pretty active development cycle for GTK+. We landed a lot of of new stuff, and many things have changed.

I’m using the neutral term changed here for a reason. How you view changes depends a lot on your perspective. Us, who implemented the changes, are of course convinced that they are great improvements. Others who maintain GTK+ themes or applications may have a different take, since changes often imply that they have to do work to adapt.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
