Weekly Debian News #1

Filed under
Humor

As a regular reader of the "Debian Weekly News" I must say that I am very sad to see it go.

I laughed at the MLM (Mailing List Morons) and their zany antics, wept at the plight of all of those poor poor orphans, and rejoiced at the news of new packages arriving in the night (presumably delivered by the stork).

So, it is with great pleasure that I hereby step up to the plate, eat a delicious helping of spagetti, step back from the plate, and offer my assistance in this most dire hour of need.

Yes, please be welcome to the first issue of the "Weekly Debian News" (title subject to change - possibly "Weekly Debian Nudes", because that would be really neat).

So, on with the news...

Amarok is broken! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!

Full Story.

That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more
