My ideas for Mandriva 2010.0

Filed under
MDV

1 week ago, I submitted to http://ideas.mandriva.com/en/ my proposals/ideas for Mandriva 2010.0. In order to let people comment on them, I will post the list of my submissions. I was planning to add more, but unfortunately, I'm presently in holidays ( at La Baule ), and so don't have time to do this Smile.

So here are my proposals :

* UXA and KMS support in drakx11">UXA and KMS support in drakx11">UXA and KMS support in drakx11 : As Mandriva 2010.0 will support UXA ( for Intel graphics cards ) and eventually KMS, the goal is to allow to enable/disable them directly from drax11 UI.

* Add runlevel 3 boot menu entry in grub options menu : This would allow to boot Mandriva directly in text mode without having to edit the kernel options.

* UPnP support in drakfirewall/shorewall :

rest here

New Google Nexus Leak Confirms 192-Core, 64-bit Apple Rival

Last September Apple AAPL +0.16% caused a stir when it announced iOS 7 and the accompanying iPhone 5S would support 64-bit operation. The move to this much faster architecture gave it the jump on 32-bit rivals Android and Windows Phone and brought Apple’s products in-line with desktop and laptop-class computing. But now Android has caught up and may well go speeding past. No less than three devices lead the charge: a teaser, a leak and an official announcement. Interestingly all come from HTC and the one which will attain by far the most headlines is the new Google ‘Nexus 9’ tablet – also dubbed the ‘Nexus X’ – which will do battle head-on with the iPad mini .

20-Way Radeon Comparison With Open-Source Graphics For Steam On Linux Gaming

When it comes to Linux gamers wanting a discrete graphics card backed by open-source drivers, the only solution right now to truly recommend for those serious about performance and making use of the hardware is really AMD Radeon graphics. While Nouveau has been making much progress, until re-clocking and other issues are worked out the performance can be unbearably slow depending upon the particular graphics processor or run into other problems. (Of course, when talking about proprietary graphics drivers on Linux, the story is entirely different, or if considering integrated Intel HD Graphics.) For those pursuing a AMD Radeon GPU for their own Steam Box/Machine build and hope to use the open-source Gallium3D drivers, here's some Steam on Linux gaming benchmarks from almost two dozen different GPUs.

Ubuntu 14.10 Beta 1 (Utopic Unicorn) to Arrive in a Couple of Days

"So Beta 1 is this week and I'll be taking care of the builds and paperwork. Could participating flavours please get in touch here or on IRC? In the mean time, I'm going to assume a participation similar to Alpha-2 and configure cron, propose-migration and the tracker accordingly, then build a first candidate for each of your flavours," wrote Canonical's Stéphane Graber.

Optimize your Linux rig for top-notch writing

I'm a big fan of Scott Nesbitt's writing, which has a technological bent, but is usually more about working effectively, rather than how tools can make you effective, which is a key distinction. Scott's setup reflects his focus on production rather than tweaking. He has his work tools and everything else is pretty much white noise—which is why LXDE/Lubuntu probably makes a lot of sense for his workflow. It's simple and it stays out of his way. Scott also gets bonus points for moving his family to Linux. That's a tough move, but given that his wife stole his ZaReason laptop, the conversion seems to have taken. Read more
