Wine 2.1 Adds More Shader Model 5 Instructions, Direct2D Rendering Improvements
The Wine developers announced the general availability of Wine 2.1, the first development release since the launch of Wine 2.0, which includes various improvements and multiple bug fixes.
Wine 2.1 comes about 10 days after the release of Wine 2.0 to implement additional Shader Model 5 instructions, add improvements to Direct2D rendering, as well as various line breaking improvements in DirectWrite, enhance the handling of MIME messages, and make the HID bus service run by default.

Wine 2.1 is out with more Shader Model 5 work
Wine 2.1 is the first development snapshot of the newest Wine code since they release the big 2.0 update. It's a pretty good start too!

I have a Asus x550vx-mh71 running ubuntu 16.10.
If I run with the nvidia driver I get stuck in a loop and can't log on. If I use the generic nvidia driver the system works but the graphics are choppy and slow.
Far as I can tell the kernel doesn't see the intel video chipset so that's not an option in additional drivers.
Does anyone have a suggestion about getting the intel gpu detected?submitted by /u/warpedwigwam
I have an application called reflector that updates pacman's mirror list for Arch Linux. I have it set to run automatically weekly via a service provided as an example in the Arch Wiki. However, I've noticed that this service has failed in all instances.
It turns out that journactl reported that it could not connect to the internet every time the service was initiated. This is certainly because networkmanager doesn't connect to the internet fast enough (I often find myself having Firefox autostarted on login with tabs that fail to load because the system is still trying to connect to the internet). So I did some reading and it seems like I needed network-online.target to make is so that the service starts after I have connected to the internet. For some reason it's still not working (it still says it's unable to retrieve the mirrors because it failed to establish a connection). Below is my service and a timer that runs it weekly.
reflector.service:[Unit] Description=Pacman mirrorlist update Requires=network-online.target After=network-online.target [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/usr/bin/reflector --protocol https --latest 20 --fastest 20 --sort score --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
and reflector.timer:[Unit] Description=Run reflector weekly [Timer] OnCalendar=weekly RandomizedDelaySec=12h Persistent=true [Install] WantedBy=timers.target
And help is much appreciated. I've been having this issue for so long and it's frustrating after trying so many times.submitted by /u/seductivec0w
OK so I'm working at a web hosting company that is solely Linux based, I've learned a few things, like how to read most of any specific man pages, how to use the terminal, some of the root folders and log locations in Linux, and some bin dirs as well as a small amount of SSH commands, as well as the difference between SSH, terminal, and ftp and a bunch of other things, but mostly centered around newbie performance tips, such as using top to isolate the process I'd, and then going into proc/process-id/maps to possibly determine what it does and if it should be killed. (Process-id is a substitute for random process numbers)
The catch is that I've kinda hit a wall and I'd like to not go through it or above it, but to tear it down. So far I've been asking questions, and I've bought a few books, like on the humble bundle from a coupe months ago. I bought a physical copy of the Linux Bible eighth edition , and a complete introduction of the Linux command line and I'll be reading those in my offtime at work. Does anyone have any advice on how I'd be able to tear down that wall, given the above information?
Thank you for your time.submitted by /u/kuriatsu
Hey guys I was on r/linux a while ago and asked what would be a good distro for someone new like me. I still haven't chosen yet because I was planning to put it on my laptop but something inside the laptop is stopping it. I'm planning to put linux on my gaming pc. What would be a good distro for users that play games. Also I know that not all games will run on linux and there are some games that I play on windows that run on linux. I play mainly H1Z1, DOOM, Rocket League, and other titles I know that won't run on linux. Would it be worth to transfer to linux or should I just stay on windows until the time comes. I'm interested in Linux and theres alot of Distros to choose from but I want to be able to play my games without having to worry or sweat about.submitted by /u/Fazerino
