Nouveau driver Test Day on Thursday 26th

Filed under

A Test Day is planned tomorrow (Thursday 26th) for the Nouveau driver for NVIDIA graphics cards. This is a Fedora test day due to the inclusion of nouveau as the default driver in Fedora 11, but will be of interest to users of all distributions, as most are likely to switch to nouveau as their default driver in future, and all the work done by Fedora will be contributed to the upstream development of the driver. i586 and x86-64 live CD images are available, so anyone can easily help out with the testing without any kind of permanent changes to your machine. There's a short set of simple test cases to run with a results table on the Wiki page, and the Fedora QA team and Ben Skeggs (Fedora nouveau maintainer and one of the main nouveau developers) will be available in #fedora-qa on Freenode IRC all day to discuss the tests and any other issues with the driver. If you have an NVIDIA graphics card, please swing by and help with testing this driver both for Fedora 11 and other future distributions!

Simply take an Intel NUC server, install the Ubuntu Appliance and take back control over storing and sharing your personal data and files with Nextcloud. Next, of course, you want to read and edit your documents, now stored on your own server, wherever you are. Naturally you will be able to allow others to review and comment on text, presentations, charts and more, perhaps during a video call or chat. All this under your own control! The new Ubuntu Appliance with Collabora Online and Nextcloud offers you just that – and more too. Do read these articles about the Ubuntu Appliance and the Nextcloud features.
