Weakly Debian Nudes #4

Nothing happened this week. Sorry.

But that never stopped me before, so let's begin with the strange rumour that Novell is having Microsoft's love child. This kind of thing is completely unwarranted, and the people spreading these fabrications - bloggers, analysts, so called "Novell Spokespersons" - really need to, well, knock it off. Novell have enough going on at the moment without having to deal with this kind of unfounded innuendo - why they still need to figure out a way to take advantage of Oracle's recent attempt to cripple Red Hat.

Moving on to some slightly more debian-related bits.

Full Story.

  • More Radeon & AMDGPU Fixes Line-Up For Linux 4.10
    Alex Deucher has sent in another batch of fixes for the Radeon and AMDGPU DRM drivers for the Linux 4.10 kernel. These fixes include support for a few peculiar Southern Islands graphics processors in AMDGPU and Radeon drivers. The affected SI GPUs now supported are those needing the "si58" memory controller microcode. Unfortunately, haven't been able to find much other details on the particular SI chips affected.
  • Mesa 17.0 Saw Less Code Changes Than Earlier Releases, But More Notable Features
    With Mesa 17.0 up to its release candidates and being under a feature freeze, I explored this morning how the size of the changes for Mesa 17.0 compare to earlier Mesa milestones. Mesa 17.0 ships with many exciting end-user changes such as OpenGL 4.5 for RadeonSI, OpenGL 4.5 for Haswell, many RADV and ANV Vulkan driver improvements, improved OpenGL 4.x Nouveau support, and many other features I'll recap shortly in a Mesa 17.0 feature overview article.
  • The open source Vulkan driver 'radv' for AMD on Linux has patches for geometry shader support
    Dave Airlie sent in a massive patch-set of 31 patches for 'radv', the open source AMD Vulkan driver, to support geometry shaders.
