CrunchEee — the netbook Linux for snobs

Filed under
OS

CrunchEee comes with the custom Array.org kernel built-in, so WPA-encypted WiFi and the unique ad-hoc connection of Joikuspot are supported on start-up. There’s also an Eee-specific panel that lets you manage Bluetooth connections, your webcam and also gives you some performance presets for your Asus machine.

And… that’s about all you get. Seriously. Clearly, n00bs aren’t welcome here.

DXVK 1.7.3 Released

  • DXVK 1.7.3 Released With Fixes, Support For New DXGI Interfaces - Phoronix

    DXVK 1.7.3 is out as the latest stable update to this project implementing the Direct3D APIs atop Vulkan for accelerating the Linux gaming experience. DXVK 1.7.3 adds support for new DXGI interfaces recently exposed on Windows 10, an option for scaling the DXVK heads-up display on HiDPI displays, various fixes, and several optimizations. EverQuest 2 and Trine 4 also saw some targeted fixes.

  • Direct3D 9/10/11 to Vulkan translation layer DXVK 1.7.3 released | GamingOnLinux

    The open source DXVK project which translates D3D9, D3D10 and D3D11 to Vulkan for use with Linux and the Wine compatibility layer has a new release up. A little while between releases, since a lot of the current effort from contributors is going into VKD3D-Proton which is the D3D12 to Vulkan layer. Still though, DXVK isn't quite done and will see plenty of updates over time as and when needed.

Games: Steam, Mask of the Rose, Oxygen Not Included and More

  • Steam On Linux Marketshare Remained Flat For November - Phoronix

    Valve has just updated their Steam Survey results for November, showing how the Linux gaming marketshare continues to evolve during this pandemic-driven year. From August to October it was 0.89% to 0.94% to 0.90%... Generally keeping with the 0.8~0.9% average we have been seeing for quite the long while since the advent of Steam Play (Proton + DXVK) pushed up the percentages from the prior all-time lows.

  • Failbetter Games announce romantic visual novel Mask of the Rose, prequel to their others | GamingOnLinux

    Failbetter Games known for their fantastic games Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies and their popular narrative browser game Fallen London have revealed their next game with Mask of the Rose. Acting as a prequel to their other games set in the Fallen London universe, it's a romantic visual novel set in 1862 months after London was stolen by bats. Failbetter say the art style they went for is inspired by Film Noir, Victorian photography and Blitz-era Britain with it being an evolution of what began with Fallen London but with more detail and depth to the style.

  • Free and open source modern level editor 'LDtk' now ready for more users | GamingOnLinux

    Level Designer Toolkit (LDtk), which was originally known as 'LEd' has a huge new release out and the developer mentioned it's now ready for production. It's a modern, free and open source 2D level editor for indie developer with a strong focus on being as user-friendly as possible and it's being built by Sébastien Bénard, who was the former lead developer on Dead Cells. LDtk 0.6 rips off the Beta label and brings with it some huge features like a World Map, allowing you to organize levels in the project into different themes like a vast 2D map, a large grid system and also either horizontally or vertically.

  • Oxygen Not Included - Spaced Out! to enter Early Access on December 8 | GamingOnLinux

    Klei Entertainment are expanding their fabulous space-colony simulation game with the first full expansion in Spaced Out, which enters Early Access on December 8. I fear for my free time, as Oxygen Not Included sucks it away so easily. They've said like any normal DLC it will require the base game (it's not a standalone) and be priced at $14.99. When it leaves Early Access, the price of Spaced Out may rise based on the growing size of it.

  • The latest update to hybrid tower-defense sandbox factory game Mindustry is amazing | GamingOnLinux

    It's free, it's open source and it's absolutely awesome. Mindustry just had an almighty update bringing with it huge changes and it's just as awesome as ever. While the basics somewhat resemble Factorio for the factory building and production lines with elaborate supply chains of conveyor belts everywhere - that's really where the similarities end. It's much more about strategy and getting into the action of it all. It is quite easily my favourite open source game, as I wrote about before.

  • Tricky Towers is a really great game I've discovered far too late | GamingOnLinux

    After releasing originally in 2016, it seems Tricky Towers is one game that I just seemed to have forgotten all about and that's such a shame. During the recent Steam Autumn Sale, I decided to finally pick up a copy after it being in my wishlist for probably a very long time. As it turns out, this was a good idea because Tricky Towers is actually quite fantastic. Giving a warm blend of Tetris falling blocks, along with some physics and a touch of magic - it's a wonderful mix that keeps me wanting to come back for more.
