TuxMachines: AMD and Linux Kernel

Tuesday 26th of September 2017 09:05:37 AM
  • Ataribox runs Linux on AMD chip and will cost at least $250

    Atari released more details about its Ataribox game console today, disclosing for the first time that the machine will run Linux on an Advanced Micro Devices processor and cost $250 to $300.

    In an exclusive interview last week with GamesBeat, Ataribox creator and general manager Feargal Mac (short for Mac Conuladh) said Atari will begin a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo this fall and launch the Ataribox in the spring of 2018. The Ataribox will launch with a large back catalog of the publisher’s classic games. The idea is to create a box that makes people feel nostalgic about the past, but it’s also capable of running the independent games they want to play today, like Minecraft or Terraria.

  • Linux 4.14 + ROCm Might End Up Working Out For Kaveri & Carrizo APUs

    It looks like the upstream Linux 4.14 kernel may end up playing nicely with the ROCm OpenCL compute stack, if you are on a Kaveri or Carrizo system.

    While ROCm is promising as AMD's open-source compute stack complete with OpenCL 1.2+ support, its downside is that for now not all of the necessary changes to the Linux kernel drivers, LLVM Clang compiler infrastructure, and other components are yet living in their upstream repositories. So for now it can be a bit hairy to setup ROCm compute on your own system, especially if running a distribution without official ROCm packages. AMD developers are working to get all their changes upstreamed in each of the respective sources, but it's not something that will happen overnight and given the nature of Linux kernel development, etc, is something that will still take months longer to complete.

  • Latest Linux kernel release candidate was a sticky mess

    Linus Torvalds is not noted as having the most even of tempers, but after a weekend spent scuba diving a glitch in the latest Linux kernel release candidate saw the Linux overlord merely label the mess "nasty".

    The release cycle was following its usual cadence when Torvalds announced Linux 4.14 release candidate 2, just after 5:00PM on Sunday, September 24th.

  • Linus Torvalds Announces the Second Release Candidate of Linux Kernel 4.14 LTS

    Development of the Linux 4.14 kernel series continues with the second Release Candidate (RC) milestone, which Linus Torvalds himself announces this past weekend. The update brings more updated drivers and various improvements.

    Linus Torvalds kicked off the development of Linux kernel 4.14 last week when he announced the first Release Candidate, and now the second RC is available packed full of goodies. These include updated networking, GPU, and RDMA drivers, improvements to the x86, ARM, PowerPC, PA-RISC, MIPS, and s390 hardware architectures, various core networking, filesystem, and documentation changes.

Reddit: Purism tweets like every 2 hours, but cannot respond to a single question here on Reddit?

Go to their subreddit /r/Purism/ and as you can see there is not a single question answered. What the fuck?

Reddit: Fedora 26 - Virtual box kernel not loaded error (Fix)

Tuesday 26th of September 2017 02:48:03 AM

Received this error upon attempting to run virtualbox guests. This fix worked for me. Though i'm certain there are more ways to skin this cat. Should go without saying. Do this at your own risk.

Message: Warning: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64) or it failed to load.

Remove virtualbox if already installed.

sudo rpm -qa | grep -i virtualbox #Get virtualbox package name)

sudo dnf remove PACKAGENAME


sudo dnf install VirtualBox kernel-devel-$(uname -r) akmod-VirtualBox

sudo akmods sudo systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service dmesg | grep -i vbox #check logs

Before doing this i was able to import a guest. But they wouldn't run. After doing this the existing guest was functional.

==> EDIT: For oh the humanity readable format

TuxMachines: Ubuntu GNOME Shell in Artful: Day 14

Tuesday 26th of September 2017 01:36:20 AM

One of the latest thing we wanted to work on as we highlighted on our previous posts is the notification for new emails or download experience on the Shell. We already do ship the KStatusNotifier extension for application indicator, but need a way to signal the user (even if you are not looking at the screen when this happens) for new emails, IM or download/copy progress.

Andrea stepped up on this and worked with Dash to Dock upstream to implement the unity API for this. Working with them, as usual, was pleasing and we got the green flag that it’s going to merge to master, with possibly some tweaks, which will make this work available to every Dash to Dock users! It means that after this update, Thunderbird is handily showing the number of unread emails you have in your inbox, thanks to thunderbird-gnome-support that we seeded back with Sébastien.

TuxMachines: Download latest Linux-based LibreELEC Krypton -- Kodi addons like Exodus and Covenant will work

Tuesday 26th of September 2017 01:34:29 AM

The Kodi media center is facing a lot of scrutiny in the media lately. Some people feel that the negative coverage is "fake news." It is important to remember that Kodi is not illegal. With that said, it can be made so with piracy-related addons. Since Kodi is open source, even if the developers removed the ability to install addons, other people could easily fork the code to add it back. Pandora's box cannot be closed.

Many people that use Kodi do so with a dedicated Linux-based operating system, such as the excellent LibreELEC. You see, these distros exist only to run the open source media center, meaning there are no resources wasted on unnecessary things. Today, LibreELEC (Krypton) v8.1.2 BETA sees release. You can install it immediately, and don't worry -- your addons like Exodus and Covenant will work fine.
