Our latest Windows vs. Linux benchmarking interest has been seeing how the AMD Ryzen 7 performance compares with the latest operating systems / Linux distributions. We have recently posted some Windows 10 vs. Windows WSL vs. Windows Linux benchmarks, relative Spectre/Meltdown mitigation impact tests on Windows vs. Linux, and other benchmarks but has mostly been done with Intel or server hardware. For those curious, today's tests were done with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 platform.

Reddit: Touch-friendly apps that run on the framebuffer?

Saturday 7th of April 2018 05:13:42 PM

I would like to install some cool things on my Linux ereader. I was wondering if there are any apps that work without an X server and are touch-friendly? A graphical web browser that runs on the framebuffer and works on touch screens, for example, would be amazing.

Reddit: Are there any repositories that carry libsdl2 2.0.8 packages for Linux Mint?

Saturday 7th of April 2018 04:55:41 PM

I'd like to use some of the new functionality in 2.0.8, but the official packages for Mint only go up to 2.0.4. I'd like to not have to build from source as I've had issues with built-from-source libraries mucking up the package manager versions.

Reddit: XP Pen Drawing Tablet on Linux

Saturday 7th of April 2018 04:47:08 PM

Hey everyone. I have really been wanting a drawing tablet that I can use with Krita on my PC with Kubuntu 17.10, and I've narrowed it down to the XP Pen Deco01. It has many good features and a great design as well as a $60 price tag, but the only problem is that it says it only works with Windows and Mac.

Assuming that the driver is already in the Linux Kernel, I think it might work, but I just want some clarification before I buy it.

Has anyone got the XP-Pen Deco01 or a similar tablet to work with Linux?

Thanks in advance.

Reddit: Help me to choose a lightweight linux to run in a vitual machine.

Saturday 7th of April 2018 04:29:48 PM

I play a game which is extremely easy to bot, the developers actually added a feature which only requires you to click two times in the same spot to earn game currency(of course there is a "cooldown") and the cool thing is you only need to click there to bot forever. Until now I left the mouse recorder open in a Windows(7, 32bit*edit: not 64bit, home premium) virtual machine to be able to use my computer while I'm "playing". The problem is that my PC gets laggy when I have a lot of tabs and programs open(I only have 4GB ram and a modded lga771 xeon[4 cores, 2.66GHz]) with only one account but I want to be able to scale my "operation" a little bit ... I want to bot with 3 accounts at a time(yes, they are all mine) because the game allows you to send currency and resources to friends and I prefer to have 3x more resources free instead of buying the resources with real money.

What I need: -very lightweight linuxwhich performs well with max 512mb ram;

-has a browser with adobe flash player(required for the game);

-some kind of mouse recorder available for install;

-bonus points if it doesn't require a lot of space;

Also while we are here, I need some advice with the virtual machine program. Right now I use VirtualBox, are there better programs(which require less resources)?

TuxMachines: Canonical Releases Major Linux Kernel Update for Ubuntu 17.10 for Raspberry Pi 2

Saturday 7th of April 2018 03:11:26 PM

Canonical released a major Linux kernel update for Ubuntu 17.10 for Raspberry Pi 2, addressing various security vulnerabilities that were previously patched for 64-bit and 32-bit architectures earlier this week.

The security advisory mentions a total of 21 security vulnerabilities fixed for linux-raspi2, the Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2 on Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating systems, including a race condition that could lead to a use-after-free vulnerability in Linux kernel's ALSA PCM subsystem, and a use-after-free vulnerability in the network namespaces implementation.

The update also addresses a race condition in Linux kernel's OCFS2 filesystem and loop block device implementations, as well as a null pointer dereference in the RDS (Reliable Datagram Sockets) protocol implementation. Most of these flaws could allow a local attacker to crash the vulnerable system by causing a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.

GNOME Foundation to Receive $1M from Anonymous Donor over Next Two Years

The donation was made by an anonymous person, though the money will be received by the GNOME Foundation over the next couple of years. Honored by this gesture, the team pledges to use the money to hire more developers and streamline their operations to improve the GNOME desktop environment. "We are honored by the trust given to us and will work hard to justify that trust. This particular donation will enable us to support the GNOME project more widely, and tackle key challenges that the free software community faces," said Neil McGovern, Executive Director of GNOME Foundation.

UP Core Plus SBC launches with Cyclone 10 and Myriad 2 AI add-ons

Aaeon has launched an “UP AI Edge” family of products that builds on a new Apollo Lake based “UP Core Plus” SBC with stacking AI companion boards based on the Movidius Myriad 2 or Intel Cyclone 10GX plus add-ons including a quad-GbE board and a camera. Aaeon Europe quickly met its modest $11K Kickstarter goal for the new UP AI Edge ecosystem, which builds on its UP board products and community. The centerpiece is a new UP Core Plus SBC, although the official, Ubuntu-equipped UP AI Edge development package uses the larger, more feature-rich UP Squared SBC. Read more

MX Tools - A year later, the toolbox got better

Roughly fourteen full phases of the moon ago, I wrote an article on MX Tools, a unique and useful bunch of dedicated utilities packaged with the MX Linux distribution. This toolbox offered the ordinary (or new) MX Linux user a chance to perform some common configuration tasks with easy and elegance. In general, MX-16 was a great player, and the recent MX-17 is even better - and at a first glance, so is the new version of MX Tools bundled with the system. Good stuff. So I set about testing, to see what has changed, and in what way this set of utilities has improved, if at all. But I'm positive. Let us commence. [...] MX Tools turned out to be a predictable gem, just as I'd expected. Well, I'm cheating, because I wrote this article after some rather thorough testing. But then, if you look across the wider spectrum of Linux home distributions, there aren't that many unique players with distinctive features. Quite often, it's the rehash of old and familiar with some extra color, polish and rebranding. MX Linux goes the extra mile (or kilometer, if you will) in making the newbie experience meaningfully different. Future improvements could potentially include an interactive walkthrough - so users will be actively prompted and helped along in their tasks. Then of course, there's the matter of visual appearance, in the UI itself. But in general, MX Tools TNG is better than we had before. More elegant, more streamlined, better looking, and most importantly, more practical. This is a good and useful toolbox, and it makes a solid distro even more appealing. Well worth testing. So do it. And take care. Read more

The story of Gentoo management

I have recently made a tabular summary of (probably) all Council members and Trustees in the history of Gentoo. I think that this table provides a very succinct way of expressing the changes within management of Gentoo. While it can’t express the complete history of Gentoo, it can serve as a useful tool of reference. What questions can it answer? For example, it provides an easy way to see how many terms individuals have served, or how long Trustee terms were. You can clearly see who served both on the Council and on the Board and when those two bodies had common members. Most notably, it collects a fair amount of hard-to-find data in a single table.
