Linux 4.2-rc4 Released, But 4.2 Isn't Quite Calming Down

Linux 4.2-rc4

Filed under
Linux

I really wish that things were calming down, but it hasn't happened
quite yet. It's not like this is particularly big or scary, but it's
also not at the stage where it's really starting to get quiet and the
bugs are really small and esoteric.

So we still had some bugs due to the low-level x86 asm cleanup work,
and the 32-bit compat 'syscall' instruction (only used on AMD) was
subtly broken. That should be all fixed now, so if you run a 64-bit
kernel and have 32-bit user space (including things like wine etc) and
saw problems earlier, go ahead and update.

Filed under
Linux

The following OEM installation images are now available:

Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon OEM 64-bit
Linux Mint 17.2 MATE OEM 64-bit

Reminder: OEM images are for computer vendors and manufacturers. They allow Linux Mint to be “pre-installed” on a machine which is then used by another person than the one who performed the installation. After an OEM installation, the computer is set in such a way that the next reboot features a small setup screen where the new user/customer has the ability to choose his/her username, password, keyboard layout and locale.

Leftovers: Software

  • gtkmm now uses C++11
    All the *mm projects now require C++11. Current versions of g++ require you to use the –std=c++11 option for this, but the next version will probably use C++11 by default. We might have done this sooner if it had been clearer that g++ (and libstdc++) really really supported C++11 fully.
  • Pixman Baking ARMv6, PowerPC 64 Improvements
    Pixman 0.33.2 RC has many new ARMv6 optimizations, bug fixes for PowerPC 64-bit, and various other fixes and enhancements to the MMX code.
  • Obnam 1.13 released (backup software)
    I have just released version 1.13 of Obnam, my backup program. See the website at http://obnam.org for details on what it does. The new version is available from git (see http://git.liw.fi) and as Debian packages from http://code.liw.fi/debian, and uploaded to Debian, and soon in unstable.
  • MusicTube Review - Use YouTube as Your Source of Music
    MusicTube is a very interesting music player designed for multiple platforms using YouTube as the music source. It's not made for locally hosted music, and you can't add other online sources, but YouTube is a huge resource.
