radv: status update or is dota2 working yet?
It only has been tested on VI AMD GPUs, Polaris worked previously but something derailed it, but we should fix it once we get the finished bisect. CIK GPUs kinda work with the amdgpu kernel driver loaded. SI GPUs are nowhere yet.

RadeonSI OpenGL Performance Has Evolved A Lot Since Early 2015
Yesterday I posted some benchmarks showing how the AMDGPU / R9 Fury performance has jumped up in the past few months just since the April release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. For those wondering how the open-source AMD OpenGL performance has evolved over the longer term, I took a Radeon R9 270X graphics card and re-did tests going back to Ubuntu 15.04 for looking at the RadeonSI Gallium3D performance for the past year and a half.
A look at Planet Nomads now it's in closed alpha and available on Linux
Good evening explorers, today I took a look at Planet Nomads a very early build of what could be a very interesting space survival game.
Note: If you do decide to pick it up, be aware right now it has issues with Unity and their new OpenGL version. I found that setting "-force-opengl" as a launch option helps.
I must stress it's very early, and access to the game is quite limited at the moment, but the developer sent me a key and it's interesting. It currently has a single planet and only a creative mode, but that's due to change as they build more into it.
I built a buggy, drove it for a moment and totally screwed up and carried on exploring.
The incredibly cool looking first-person adventure game 'Valley' looks like it's heading to Linux
I had never heard of 'Valley' before until it was emailed in by Colin (thanks!), and wow it looks marvellous. It's also heading to Linux!
BUTCHER, a blood-soaked love letter to the early 90s announced with Linux support
BUTCHER looks like a cross between Broforce and Doom and has jumped straight to the top of my watch list. The developers sent it in and tell me it will have full Linux support.
The game is from Transhuman Design, the same team who gave us Trench Run and King Arthur's Gold, both of which also support Linux.
- Early Access supernatural newspaper RPG 'Daily Chthonicle: Editor's Edition' is likely coming to Linux
- Crusader Kings II: The Reaper’s Due now available, brings more death and pestilence
State of Mind, a fantastic looking futuristic thriller game built with Unreal Engine that's coming to Linux
It's quite rare for me to be so completely surprised and thrilled by a trailer. While it didn't show all that much, what it did show certainly has me extremely interested! Also, awesome choice of song.
Addictive free arcade game 'Super Crate Box' has its Linux port released
Super Crate Box was briefly mentioned in this GOL article, regarding the developers' plans to port three of their games to Linux. Now the day has come for this title, so I tried it and it's really a truly addictive game and an instant recommendation.
Starting in 2017, LinuxCon will be renamed the Open Source Summit
Since 2012, Alex has had 14 patches accepted into the mainline Linux kernel. With his employer, Positive Technologies, he has helped develop a bare metal hypervisor that they hope to open source soon. And this year he spoke at LinuxCon Japan about his work porting Kernel Address Sanitizer (KASan) to his company's bare-metal hypervisor.
He is using the free training and certification provided by the LiFT scholarship to take the Linux Kernel Internals and Development (LFD420) course from The Linux Foundation.
i have a questions about SSH: i want to connect to my to my computer at work. To do so, i need to connect to the ssh server of our institute at first, from where i can than connect to any computer in the network.
The issue is, i would like to use some sftp or fish protocol in dolphin for easy GUI file drag-and-dropping.
Does anyone know how to accomplish that? Like can i access my work computer directly via some command i just don't know?submitted by /u/buuhuu
Hello internet, I am just posting a quick little idea I had that you may be interested in.
I, like many (I would hope all) of you, am a GNU/Linux user. And during my quote-unquote 'linux journey' have found myself on The Linux Documentation Project website many a time. My visit typically consists of viewing a how-to of some sort. And every time it irks me that while likely thousands of people have viewed this very same page, it is still unstyled HTML. Not to mention many of these articles have not been updated for a decade (give or take). This is what we refer to as The Linux Document Project, and yet we choose to leave it in shambles. It is seemly a dead project, yet it still receives many visits annually.
So my idea here is to take a second look at what we have, and make an attempt at reviving this project for modern day use. My idea consists of a few things in this order:
- Fork the existing LDP project hosted on GitHub, and convert it into a simpler format (I like to use Asciidoc since it is standardized unlike its more popular Markdown cousins)
- Add a static site generator to the project (Again, my preference is Middleman since it is extremely simple and can be extended)
- Style the converted docs into something more pleasing to the eye (I find this especially important for new users). This will be quite simple using the static site generator mentioned above
- Try our best to modernize these documents where needed (This will obviously be the hardest part)
All in all, I think it is an achievable goal for a small group to get this up and running through git. My only concern is overall interest in the Linux community. So here are a few questions for you readers to answer:
- Would you be interested in using such a site?
- Would you be willing to contribute (small or large) changes to such a site?
- Do you have any naming suggestions for said new project? :P
Thank you for your time, and please, if you're interesting, tell your friends! And please, if you have any criticism for my plan, feel free to share that too.
P.S., I am aware of the Linux Journey, but it irks me for a few reasons, including that it is not truly open source (only the markdown is available through a repo) and it attempts to brainwash new users occasionally. For example, on its kernel installation page it uses apt-get as the way to install a kernel. If find this extremely short-sighted to cite this as the only method. While it is far from the worst resource, I do not condone Linux Journey as a suitable guide to GNU/Linux as a whole. Thus, we need an alternative.submitted by /u/tedm430
Logic Supply has introduced a “ICM-3011” 3.5-inch board with a dual-core i.MX6, wide-range power input, and extended temperature support.
Like the recent Pico-ITX form factor ICM-2010 SBC that’s also available in an ICS-2010 mini-PC, the ICM-3011 was built by Taipei-based Embux, and is being distributed and supported by Logic Supply. Like the ICM-2010, the $253 ICM-3011 runs on the 1GHz, dual-core DualLite version of NXP’s Cortex-A9-based i.MX6 SoC. It similarly is supported by images for Android 5.0.2 “Lollipop,” Yocto “Daisy” Linux 1.6.2, or Ubuntu Linux 12.04.
Colorpick is one of my little side-projects. It is a tool to select colors. It comes with a screen color picker and the ability to check two colors contrast well enough to be used as foreground and background colors of a text.
So Antergos was recommended to me by a number of people and I have to say that the experience was decent.
It isn't difficult to install Antergos but if you have a slow internet connection then you have to be a bit patient.
Most things worked ok and hardware support was fine across the board.
The Steam thing I put down to something that the Steam developers need to resolve. Come up with a better installer.
Would Antergos make my top five now that I have tried it? I would say no to that. It isn't as good as Manjaro and that is the best distribution to pitch it against because they are both based on Arch. Manjaro has a more polished look and feel.
Nevertheless Antergos is a good distribution and well worth a try.
