Thursday 6th of November 2014 08:45:17 PM

Having your own private cloud is another excellent use of the Raspberry Pi’s capabilities, because you can store it hidden away somewhere and it will require very little day- to-day maintenance.

Run Linux on Android – part 2

If you want to make full use of Linux on your Android device, the best solutions require rooting it and unlocking its bootloader (see ‘Rooting questions’ section below). Whichever way you do it, this a major step as it will void your warranty and also runs a risk of ‘soft-bricking’ the device – although it can be made to work again if that happens. Another drawback is that unlocking the bootloader will factory-reset your phone and erase all its apps and data, so ensure that you make a backup beforehand. Read more

Is The Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Fast Enough For Steam On Linux Gaming?

For the tested Kepler graphics cards that support re-clocking, I tested them at their maximum obtained re-clocked frequencies where the system was stable -- generally still below their rated core/memory frequencies.
