This Week in Linux: ROSA, Magiea, Mint, Gentoo

Filed under
Linux

Things have been a bit busy in the Linux world this week. Besides openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 2 being released, ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 rolled off the assembly line, if not your tongue. Mageia released their lastest version 3 developmental ISO, better late than never. Linux Mint saw yet another spin release, this time the Xfce version and Gentoo marked the end of the world today.

ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012

Ok, who named this? Actually, the announcement said, "ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 is a new name for a line of non-commercial desktop operating systems developed by ROSA. The name underlines the fact that the system contains "fresh" versions of user software and system components (compared to enterprise editions of ROSA)."

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
