Phoronix: You Can Help Bring Vulkan Support To Older AMD GCN GPUs

Saturday 16th of January 2016 03:31:31 AM
Earlier today I wrote about how AMD will only be supporting Vulkan with the AMDGPU DRM kernel driver and not the more common Radeon DRM kernel driver. Here's a few more points to clarify the situation...

Reddit: Help with a freeze?

Monday 11th of January 2016 07:56:08 PM

I've been trying to run various Ubuntu distros through a USB stick (One from the livecd, one from a distro installed directly to the USB) on a gen 1 Surface Pro as well as on a Dell Inspiron laptop, and everything seems to work fine until I connect to wifi and open Firefox. As soon as Firefox loads up the entire OS freezes and I have to do a hard reset.

What gives?

I've used Kubuntu 15.1 and the v14 LTS, as well as generic Ubuntu.

Also, I've attempted to apt-get chromium but it keeps failing. Could it be because of the xfinity wifi hotspot I'm connected to?

LinuxInsider: Solus Project's Virtues Begin and End With Stability

Monday 11th of January 2016 07:31:39 PM
The Solus Project is much like the little engine that still can't function. Version 1.0 was released last month as the first stable release from the twice-revamped Linux distro. Solus is built from scratch for the x86_64 architecture around a rewritten Budgie homemade desktop environment. Budgie is an open source project in its own right. It offers a simplified approach to implementing the look and feel of the older-style GNOME 2 functionality. Version 1.0 does work out of the gate. It does little to impress beyond not crashing, however.

LXer: MINIX NEO U1 Media Hub Review

Monday 11th of January 2016 07:04:44 PM
Whereas most other Amlogic S905 boxes have adopted the typical cost down approach, MINIX has done the reverse and built what they believe will be the number one Android box on the market. Their newest device, the NEO U1 is expected to surpass their own high-end flagship model – with more features at a lower price.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
