Reddit: Simpler, open source document editor?

4 hours 49 min ago

Right now I'm using libreoffice writer, but I don't want an entire office suite, and writer itself provides much much more than I need. Is there an open source app that's more along the lines of google docs?

Reddit: Dual boot on imac late 2006

5 hours 7 min ago

I recently received a imac for free other than being way too complex to get macos 10.7.5 on there. I want to dual boot it now. I found an iso on mattgadieny.com for a iso with 32bit efi and 64but ow.

I can't seem to get a USB to boot and my non apple keyboard doesn't respond during the error screen for me to retry.

I used a Linux live DVD to install and it let's me install next to macos. But when I boot into Ubuntu the screen is extremely slanted and unreadable.

What am I doing wrong? Is there another way I should be installing Ubuntu

Qrefind is what I have installed for the boot menu

Reddit: Light epub reader?

5 hours 39 min ago

I've tried (and I'm unhappy with):

- fbreader (doesn't do two-page view)

- coolreader (doesn't render some html correctly, otherwise pretty good)

- mupdf (doesn't do two-page view)

- zathura with mupdf backend (tends to get heavy too)

LXer: 10 Efficient Raspberry Add-ons To Enhance Performance - Part 8

6 hours 6 min ago
Sometimes you may find yourself in great need to improve the functionality of your Raspberry Pi. There is a good chance your Raspberry does not support the functionality you want. There is also a chance that it supports your dream functionality but with the help of an external tool. An add-on in other words. It is pretty obvious that your dream add-on exists in the market or someone somewhere is cracking an algorithm to build. Never mind, here we compile a list of the best add-ons to get for your Raspberry in 2018.

Reddit: Alternative ways to watch YouTube?

6 hours 20 min ago

I tend to watch YouTube while I play games but that causes a lot of stuttering on more intensive games. However, playing videos locally like in mpv or VLC doesn't cause the stuttering What are some ways to watch YouTube videos using local programs? Support for playlists and Next Up recommendations would be a plus.

TuxMachines: A Look At The Windows vs. Linux Scaling Performance Up To 64 Threads With The AMD 2990WX

8 hours 12 min ago

This past week we looked at the Windows 10 vs. Linux performance for AMD's just-launched Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and given the interest from that then ran some Windows Server benchmarks to see if the performance of this 64-thread CPU would be more competitive to Linux. From those Windows vs. Linux tests there has been much speculation that the performance disparity is due to Windows scheduler being less optimized for high core/thread count processors and its NUMA awareness being less vetted than the Linux kernel. For getting a better idea, here are benchmarks of Windows Server 2019 preview versus Ubuntu Linux when testing varying thread/core counts for the AMD Threadripper 2990WX.

Toggled via the BIOS was SMT as well as various CCX configurations and each step of the way comparing the Windows Server 2019 Build 17733 performance to that of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with the Linux 4.18 kernel in various multi-threaded benchmarks supported under both operating systems.

TuxMachines: Kernel: RISC-V and Virtual Machine

10 hours 2 min ago
  • RISC-V's Linux Kernel Support Is Getting Into Good Shape, Userspace Starting To Work

    The RISC-V open-source processor ISA support within the mainline kernel is getting into good shape, just a few releases after this new architecture port was originally added to the Linux Git tree.

    The RISC-V code for Linux 4.19 includes the ISA-mandated timers and first-level interrupt controllers, which are needed to actually get user-space up and running. Besides the RISC-V first-level interrupt controller, Linux 4.19 also adds support for SiFive's platform-level interrupt controller that interfaces with the actual devices.

  • A Hearty Batch Of KVM Updates Land In Linux 4.19

    There is a lot of new feature work for the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) within the Linux 4.19 kernel.

TuxMachines: Kate/KTextEditor Picks Up Many Improvements To Enhance KDE Text Editing

10 hours 11 min ago

Even with KDE's annual Akademy conference happening this past week in Vienna, KDE development has been going strong especially on the usability front. The Kate text editor and the KTextEditor component within KDE Frameworks 5 have been the largest benefactors of recent improvements.

This KDE text editing code now has support for disabling syntax highlighting entirely if preferred. When using syntax highlighting, there have been many KTextEditor enhancements to improve the experience as well as improvements to the highlighting for a variety of languages from JavaScript to YAML to AppArmor files.
