LXer: The state of AI: 10 eye-opening statistics

Tuesday 20th of February 2018 02:53:47 AM
For IT leaders early in their AI talks, consider these recent stats and trends.

Reddit: PSA: If you're on Intel Skylake or above and getting bad graphics performance (e.g. GNOME 3, video playback). You might need to enable Intel's Linux Graphics Firmware.

Tuesday 20th of February 2018 02:15:38 AM

I've been having performance issues with GNOME 3 and interpolation on mpv. It was weird since my hardware isn't that old. Turns out some Intel graphics features aren't enabled by default. Enabling them considerably increased performance.

LXer: How To Make Good Use Of 'grep' Command

Tuesday 20th of February 2018 01:10:51 AM
Linux and UNIX systems come with a shell command known as ‘grep’. This simply looks for a specified text, or pattern, in a file or an entire directory. The most common usage is for quickly searching a file for occurrences of a pattern, which can be in plain text, or in the form of a regular expression. Here, the patterns used will be simple text rather than regular expressions.

LXer: Rugged, Linux-friendly industrial PC serves up dual PCI or PCIe slots

Monday 19th of February 2018 11:27:55 PM
Axiomtek’s “IPC962-511-FL” industrial computer offers 6th or 7th Gen Intel CPUs, an extended temperature range, 2x swappable SATA drives, 2x PCI or PCIe expansion slots, and a choice of serial and DIO I/O configurations. Axiomtek’s new IPC962-511-FL that follows the rugged design tradition and multiple PCI/PCIe expansion options of other Intel-based IPC computers, such as its 4th Gen “Haswell” based IPC932-230-FL-ECM.

Reddit: ISA sound cards

Monday 19th of February 2018 10:59:17 PM

Anyone know of any linux distros that still support ISA sound cards? I have a PII think pad with an old sound card I wanted to get running for fun. A few years ago drivers for ISA were dropped. I could use an old distro but I wanted something that can still get new software.

TuxMachines: KaOS 2017.11 review - Chaotic and unfriendly

Monday 19th of February 2018 10:32:09 PM

KaOS 2017.11 feels like a very buggy product. While I do like the Nvidia setup right from the start, this little gem is offset by pretty much everything else. Most other recent distros rarely had any issues with the LG RD510 laptop - apart from the ATA link reset on wake after suspend, which affects all of them - but KaOS is an exception to that rule with a rather depressing hardware record - Bluetooth, Wireless no-reconnect, smartphone support. And let's not even talk about Samba.

The responsiveness was quite bad, Kaptan did not work, and I wasn't enjoying the visual side of things one bit. In fact, I really do not understand the eye-killing choices that go with the default theme. All in all, there are very few redeeming factors to KaOS. If you're looking for something avant-garde, the Arch-based Antergos or Manjaro fit the bill rather well. If you want mainstream, Mint or Ubuntu or whatever. This falls somewhere in between, with nothing amazing in return. 2/10. Perhaps next time.

TuxMachines: GNU/Linux Experiences With AMD's Latest

  • AMD's Raven Ridge Botchy Linux Support Appears Worse With Some Motherboards/BIOS

    With my launch testing of the Raven Ridge desktop APUs with the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G there were some stability issues to report and some hangs within games and mode-setting issues. It appears those issues are exacerbated with some motherboards: the past few days with two different AMD B350 motherboards have been a real pain getting the current AMDGPU driver stack working -- and even Linux 4.17 AMDGPU WIP code -- on either of these Raven Ridge APUs.

  • XDA’s First Full PC Build: An All-AMD Linux Desktop Featuring Ryzen and Polaris

    With GPU prices increasing exponentially over the past few months, it’s been hard to price out a PC. This particular build took us nearly a year to assemble; getting all the parts together was a challenge. (TK, our video producer, delivered the last piece of the puzzle after the Consumer Electronics Show in January.)

    Our goal was to show what a decent budget can get you in an all-AMD build, and what kind of performance you can expect from it. Thanks to AMD Ryzen and Polaris, we were able to do just that.

  • Ryzen 3 2200G Video Memory Size Testing On Linux

    One of the discussion items in the forums this week was about the video memory allowance for the Vega graphics on Raven Ridge APUs as well as efficiences or inefficiencies around the TTM memory manager as used by the AMDGPU kernel driver. Here are some vRAM size tests with the Ryzen 3 2200G.

LXer: Perl hashes and arrays: The basics

Monday 19th of February 2018 08:02:04 PM
I get asked from time to time why I enjoy programming in Perl so much. Ask me in person, and I'll wax poetic about the community of people involved in Perl—indeed, I have done so more than once here on already, and I make no secret of the fact that many of my closest friends are Perl more

LG releases webOS Open Source Edition, looks to expand webOS usage

LG’s smart TVs ship with an operating system called webOS, which is the latest version of an operating system that was developed by Palm to run on phones, acquired by HP to use with tablets, and eventually sold to LG, which is still using it today. But now LG wants to expand the adoption of webOS and the company is working with the South Korean government to solicit business proposals from other companies interested in using webOS. LG has also released a webOS Open Source Edition version of the operating system. Read more

Test driving 4 open source music players and more

In my last article, I described my latest music problem: I need an additional stage of amplification to make proper use of my new phono cartridge. While my pre-amplifier contains a phono stage, its gain is only suitable for cartridges that output about 5mV, whereas my new cartridge has a nominal output of 0.4mV. Based on my investigation, I liked the looks of the Muffsy phono kits, so I ordered the head amplifier, the power supply, and the back panel. I also needed to obtain a case to hold the boards and the back panel, available online from many vendors. Muffsy does not sell the “wall wart” necessary to power the unit, so I ordered one of those from a supplier in California. Finally, inspecting my soldering iron, solder “sucker,” and solder, I’ve realized I need to do better—so a bit more shopping, online or local, is in order there. Finally, for those, like me, whose soldering skills may be rusty and perhaps were not all that great to begin with, Muffsy kindly offers links to two instructional videos. Read more
