LXer: Review: Simplicity Linux 15.4 alpha

Monday 2nd of March 2015 08:23:36 AM
Today I am looking at the latest version of Simplicity Linux 15.4 alpha. Simplicity Linux 15.4 alpha is based on Puppy Linux and I have to say is extremely light weight and stable. For those who may be interested I use a VM within my Mac mini to do videos, Simplicity Linux 15.4 alpha was one of the fastest I have used within that enviroment. You will see in video below how fast it is.

Reddit: Re-map my keyboard

Monday 2nd of March 2015 06:31:56 AM

Hi guys,

Is there a way to remap keys on my keyboard even when I am not in an X session? Currently I am using setxkbmap but that only works if I start X.

For what it's worth, I am using Arch+i3, and my main need is to remap Capslock to Control, although I'd like to do some other stuff as well if possible.

Thanks for the help!

Mesa's Android Support Is Currently In Bad Shape

While Mesa is talked about as being able to be built for Google's Android operating system to run these open-source graphics drivers on Android devices with OpenGL ES support, in reality there's a lot left to be desired. Over the years there's been a handful of developers working on Android Mesa support to let the popular open-source graphics drivers run over there -- from the Intel driver now that they're using HD Graphics within their low-power SoCs (rather than PowerVR), AMD has made a few steps toward Android netbook/laptop devices with Radeon graphics, and we're starting to see Gallium3D drivers for Qualcomm Adreno (Freedreno) and the Raspberry Pi (VC4) where there's interest from Android users. This year as part of Google Summer of Code we also might see a student focused on Freedreno Android support. Read more
