GCC 5 To Boast New x86 Optimizations
GCC 5 already boasts an incredible amount of new compiler features as laid out now over dozens of Phoronix articles, but there's even more abound for this major compiler update due out in 2015.
I was very impressed with Linux Mint 17.1. The common feature upgrades and bug fixes add real value to this distribution. The changes in Update Manager, the Login Screen, Language Settings, Kernel Menu, and artwork should please almost all Linux Mint users. And the huge range of background wallpapers, along with the slideshow feature make it a great choice for those who want frequent changes to the look of their Linux Mint systems.
With the official Fedora 21 release due out soon and the release candidate being available this weekend, I ran some basic performance benchmarks comparing the speed of Fedora 21 64-bit to that of Ubuntu 14.10 on an Intel Xeon workstation.
Fedora 21 Workstation was compared to Ubuntu 14.10 using the x86_64 version of each and maintaining the default settings. Fedora 21 is shipping with the Linux 3.17 kernel, GNOME Shell 3.14.2, X.Org Server 1.16.2, Mesa 10.3.3, and GCC 4.9.2. The package versions this time around aren't too far off from the Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn release from back in November with the main change being the use of the Linux 3.16 kernel.
Things are calming down nicely, and everything looks pretty normal.
In fact, if it wasn't for the pending issues with odd watchdog (and
possibly rcu) lockups I'd be pretty happy. As it is, that isn't a
regression from 3.17, but is still very disturbing.
At the same time, with the holidays coming up, and the problem _not_
being a regression, I suspect that what will happen is that I'll
release 3.18 on time in a week, because delaying it will either mess
up the merge window and the holiday season, or I'd have to delay it a
We'll see. Maybe DaveJ will be able to bisect it a bit now that the
false lead of "3.17 was ok" has been shown to be wrong (right now it
looks like the problem seems to have crept in between 3.16 and 3.17).
Annoying, because as mentioned, other than that we seem to be doing
well. The rc7 patch looks very normal, with two thirds being drivers
(spread all over: usb, networking, staging, thermal, gpu, sound..) and
half of the remaining being arch updates (mostly mips, arm, powerpc).
The remaining is mainly networking and some filesystem fixes (nfsd and
I am making an HTPC, I am using a ful desktop for a few reasons; I want to be able to stream games from a windows enabled PC if i want, I am more comfortable with a full desktop(But i want an easy way to use it to stream music and videos.). I am just wondering What software is best for this?
Are there any applications that i can open when i just want to use it like a tv?(more of a traditional carousel type app selector.. for lack of better words)
Are there any other uses for this (what im going to call) server, that arent going to take up to much resources? (Should i try to make a DNS server for the home? Is there a way to make it serve a page like hotels, where when you get on the network, you sign in through a web page? any other cool networking ideas?)submitted by String_user_equals_T
