  • PlayStation 4 Linux Hack Now Supports 3D Acceleration, USB Support Coming Soon

    We reported on the last days of 2015 that a group of talented hackers that go by the name of fail0verflow managed to hack Sony's PlayStation 4 gaming console to run the Gentoo Linux operating system.

    The hack was made possible due to a broken NOP command on the integrated AMD Radeon GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), something that Sony might not be able to fix anytime soon.

  • Feel like fragging? You can do that in your browser with QuakeJS

    Here's an interesting thing I stumbled upon while I was looking up ioquake3 stuff. QuakeJS is a port of the ioquake3 engine to Javascript and WebGL and it plays original Quake 3 maps.

  • Oculus Rift Pre-Orders Start, But Linux Support Is Still Halted

    Oculus Rift pre-orders opened up this morning for $599 USD and an anticipated ship date of April. However, the Facebook-owned company isn't yet back to providing Linux support.

    With today's pre-order launch, I was curious to see whether they would comment on restoring Linux (and OS X) support, but they have not. Oculus suspended Linux and OS X support last year in order to focus on their Windows support with no timeline for when they planned to come back to providing Linux support. However, now that everything is ready to go, they apparently aren't yet ready to jump back into the VR scene for Linux gamers. There's also nothing new with regards to Linux via the Oculus developer area.

  • Review: Bound By Flame on Linux

    Bound By Flame is an ambitious Action RPG developed by French development studio Spiders and published by Focus Home Interactive. It was originally released in 2014, but the Linux version was released out of the blue earlier this month. Thus far, it's the only title from the developer that's been released for our platform.

  • Steam for Linux Still Can't Get Past 1%, Survey Reveals

    The Steam Hardware Survey for December has been released, and it’s not good news for the Linux platform, which doesn’t seem capable of going past the 1% milestone.

    Up until a little over six months ago, the Steam for Linux market share hovered around 1.2%, but something changed overnight, and the usage dropped to about 0.8%. Most likely, Valve changed something in the algorithm, but since nothing of what they do is transparent, it’s simply just a guessing game.

  • The Steam Beta Client Has Received New Steam Controller Improvements

    As you may know, Valve has decided to conquer your living room with their Steam Machines, which are Linux-based gaming consoles that run SteamOS and the Steam Controller, which is the first remote control that can be used to play shooters like Counter Strike.

  • Linux Game: Volvox. Let's Kick Start Evolution.

    Volvox features the Trimoebas, who are triangular shaped unicellular organisms living in the primordial soup. They have but one goal in life: build the first multicellular organism. Simple, right?

    The game features 250 hand drawn levels, accompanied by a rather soothing soundtrack as you make your way through the microscopic world. Throughout the game the player crafts ever larger and more complex organisms from worms, to jellyfish, to the fish.

  • The open source Itch games store app needs translators

    The open source app for installing games from Itch.io needs your help with translations. I am in love with this little app.

    One reason I used to love Desura so much was their open source app, although that turned sour due to licensing changes for contributors, and now Desura is bankrupt so Itch.io is now my favourite smaller store.

  • PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac 4.2.10 Out Now for Linux and Mac, Based on Wine 1.8

    Today, January 3, 2016, the developers of the PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac software, two open source tools that let GNU/Linux and Mac OS X users play Windows games, have announced the release of version 4.2.10.

    Despite the fact that more and more games now have support for the Linux platforms, not to mention Apple's Mac OS, it would appear that software like PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac are still popular among gamers who want to migrate to a more secure and safe operating system.

Desktops, Rolling vs Stable, and New Internet Security

There is a lot of Linux news to report today as a lot of interesting things have been happening last few days. Over the weekend Jeff Hoogland, Bodhi Linux founder, briefed folks on the many graphical desktops for Linux including his own. Yesterday, Matt Hartley compared and contrasted long term versus rolling released Linux distributions and Jack Wallen said desktop Linux isn't really important anymore. Today, Jack Germain said Mandriva offshoot Rosa is a "real powerhouse" and the LF announced collaboration with the White House on new Internet security measures. Read more

Slackware Live 0.5.1, 1.0 on Its Way

Eric "AlienBob" Hameleers announced Slackware Live Edition 0.5.1 Saturday based on the latest Slackware 14.2 Beta. Hameleers said his livestak is "mostly complete at this point" but still lacks sufficient documentation. That's the goal for stable 1.0. For folks looking for a distro "well equipped to keep systemd out of our distro for a while" but still boots UEFI machines, perhaps Slack Live is the answer. It comes in Slackware default, Xfce, Plasma, and MATE versions, so why not book 'er up? Read more
