Reddit: Do you use anti-malware tools like rkhunter and chkrootkit to secure your Linux machine? Are they relevant/useful for modern linux usage?

Thursday 8th of March 2018 02:48:46 AM

Title says it all. I just want to know whether I'll benefit by installing any of these two oft-recommended tools in the linux world. How are they useful, and do I really need them?

Phoronix: Vulkan 1.1 Support Lands In Mesa Git For RADV, ANV

Thursday 8th of March 2018 01:18:39 AM
Waking up this morning and preparing for Vulkan 1.1 I wasn't too sure what to expect from the open-source drivers and certainly wouldn't have envisioned in my wildest dreams that by the time of going to sleep there would be initial support merged into Mesa Git on launch-day for a major graphics API update... But open-source developers have achieved just that today...

Reddit: Terrible Audio with Linux Mint

Thursday 8th of March 2018 12:31:15 AM

I have a system here where the speakers themselves aren't all that great, it's a built-in All-In-One PC by ASUS, the audio sounds great under Windows 7 after enabling EQ Enhancers to even out the Bass, Treble and such, but on Linux Mint the audio sounds terrible, and I've tried using PulseEffects to correct the audio levels.

Under Linux Mint all I'm getting is high-pitched audio with too much Treble, and little to no Bass, when I try to use PulseEffects to increase the Bass all I'm getting is scratchy unbalanced audio.

Reddit: Something in latest kernels break wi-fi. Specifically, I cannot DHCP to Google's (specfically Google's) Starbucks, etc. wi-fi hotspots with them.

Wednesday 7th of March 2018 11:53:37 PM

I tried all the network configuration stuff, etc., and nothing helped. I also noticed my Gentoo box (custom kernel) didn't have the problem, while everything else I had recently kernel updated did.

Reverting Arch to Linux-LTS fixed the problem in it. I'm guessing some new, optional change has broken some aspect of networking somewhere or other--though it may be specific to certain devices/firmwares, as well.

Anyone who wants to try reproducing or whatever, please do. I'd like for this to be fixed.
