Put a Puppy in your PC, part 5

Filed under
Linux

It's time to say goodbye to Puppy Linux but before you put your disc away, in readiness for a disaster that will hopefully never happen, here's some more configuration tips and features you might like to try.

I mentioned in part 3 that the sound might not work when Puppy boots for the first time, if so here's what to do. Go to Menu > Setup > ALSA Sound Wizard. Click OK and the audio devices on your PC will be displayed. Select the first one on the list, click OK, confirm the selection (a couple of times) and you will hear a test sound (a dog bark). If it doesn't work go back and try the next option. If your PC is barking you can try out Puppy's audio recorder and mixer, audio and video replay (most formats, including MP3 and DVD), ripping and burning CD and DVD features, which you will find under Multimedia on the Menu button.

Now let's install your printer.

Windows 10 vs. Linux Radeon Software Performance, Including AMDGPU-PRO & RadeonSI

As alluded to earlier and on Twitter, the past few days I have been working on a fresh Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux graphics/gaming performance comparison. This time it's looking at the latest Radeon performance using an R9 Fury and RX 480. Tests on Windows were obviously done with Radeon Software Crimson Edition while under Linux were the two latest AMD/RTG Linux driver options: the hybrid AMDGPU-PRO driver and the fully open-source driver via Linux 4.8 and Mesa 12.1-dev.
