TuxMachines: The AMD Radeon R9 Fury Is Currently A Disaster On Linux

Wednesday 29th of July 2015 05:10:11 PM

When AMD announced the Radeon R9 Fury line-up powered by the "Fiji" GPU with High Bandwidth Memory, I was genuinely very excited to get my hands on this graphics card. The tech sounded great and offered up a lot of potential, and once finally finding an R9 Fury in stock, shelled out nearly $600 for this graphics card. Unfortunately though, thanks to the current state of the Catalyst Linux driver, the R9 Fury on Linux is a gigantic waste for OpenGL workloads. The R9 Fury results only exemplifies the hideous state of AMD's OpenGL support for their Catalyst Linux driver with a NVIDIA graphics card costing $200 less consistently delivering better gaming performance.

Reddit: How much does hardware with open drivers and firmware lag behind its competitors?

Tuesday 28th of July 2015 09:56:19 PM

As we free folk know, the hardware doesn't need to be free, we need just open firmware if it's loadable and open drivers. And not tivoized interface.

How many hardware pieces of this type exists? I keep hearing about some Chinese MIPS processors, old RadeonHD driver that didn't need closed firmware to load etc etc (Freedreno?).

Have you used that kind of hardware? Why the companies that distributed it failed to be profitable/supported? How much does it lag behind modern CPUs and GPUs like Intel/AMD/Nvidia/Qualcomm?

P.S. I'm not trying to convert people here, just kind of anxious about the road companies are taking us to. Firmware signing from NVIDIA, firmware signing from Intel, laws that defend closed modems, laws that defend closed routers. Does free folk even have a chance now?..

Reddit: grep

Tuesday 28th of July 2015 09:14:40 PM

Hi Guys, Im trying to use grep to search the folder configs and output everything file that has the interface Tunnel100 in there.

I am using something like this.

grep -x 'interface Tunnel100' /configs/

Now where I am stuck is that I want the results from the above to be searched again using another expression such as grep -x 'Image: Software' so I can get the line with Image: Software in there. Basically a 2 searches, the second one being against the results of the first.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Making the Case for Koha: Why Libraries Should Consider an Open Source ILS

When Engard educates people on what open source is, what it means to use open source software, what types of software are available, which companies use it, and who trusts it, they see that their fears are unfounded, she says. To back up her discussions with facts, she maintains bibliographies on open source and open source security. She also has a set of bookmarks on Delicious, and she wrote a book, Practical Open Source Software for Libraries. “[W]hen people come to me and say open source is too risky … I have facts and figures, just what librarians want, to say no, all software has potential risk associated with it. You have to evaluate software side by side, and look at it, and really take the time to compare it. … I know you’re going to pick the open source solution over the proprietary because it is so quickly developed, so quickly fixed, so ahead of the curve as far as technology is concerned.” Read more

Review of Ubuntu Phone – A Work Still Under Progress

However, what one must remember is that the Ubuntu Phone is still a work in progress. The company is issuing updates every month and is relying on its current user base regarding the feedback and ideas. Right now, only three Ubuntu phones are present in the market ranging from $186 to $328 roughly. Ubuntu has been in hibernation mode for the development of this OS for a long time and it looked like they might be consumer ready now, however, after seeing the Ubuntu Phone it looks like they might be far from that scenario right now.
