Sold! (tentatively)

Site News

I guess tuxmachines.org has been sold for $1000. I know it's kinda low, but times have changed and the new owner plans to carry on the tuxmachines tradition.

I suppose that's all I should say for now until the deal is written in stone.

Thanks everyone for everything: all the visits, all the jokes, comments, and donations. But more on that later as well.

hi

what happened? is the new owner running the website now?

re: hi

Um, not quite yet, but the deal is done. The new owner has sent payment and I was gonna put up another post when it cleared and I handed over the reins. I expect payment to clear before the end of the week. At that time, I'll introduce him and hand it over. Until then, it's still me, Susan.

Oh, what happened? I just noticed that hits were falling, so, I updated the site and thought I'd work on it until the very end because I didn't want {new owner} to lose too many users. Besides, it's hard to adjust to not posting news. I keep seeing all these cool links...

thank you

You've done an excellent job with tuxmachines over the years, thank you for providing it to us all.

re:hi

I do hope you will still be at least involved Smile maybe post stuff once in a while Tongue

Hi hussam,

Everyone is welcome to contribute, especially Susan. The site will be community-driven and Susan will eternally be its mother.

I am starting today, but it's likely that news aggregation will properly start next week.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
