  • Wine 4.6 Released With Initial Bits Towards Vulkan WineD3D Backend

    While not yet useful to end-users/gamers but as the first step in the right direction, there is the initial bits towards developing a Vulkan back-end for WineD3D. This will ultimately allow Direct3D 11 and earlier to be accelerated via Vulkan rather than WineD3D's current Direct3D-to-OpenGL translation layer. Wine already is working on VKD3D for Direct3D 12 to Vulkan while this Vulkan back-end to WineD3D is for D3D11 and earlier. Yes, there is already DXVK filling a similar void but this new CodeWeavers effort fits better into the Wine design, among other reasons for not re-using DXVK/D9VK but with some possible collaboration perhaps moving forward.

  • Wine 4.6 is officially out with the start of a Vulkan backend for WineD3D

    The Wine 4.6 development release is now available and it includes some rather interesting updates, along with plenty of bug fixes.

Mind maps are diagrams used to organize information visually in hierarchical ways that show relationships among the elements that make up the map.

Filesystem Hierarchy Standard

If you are new to the Linux command line, you may find yourself wondering why there are so many unusual directories, what they are there for, and why things are organized the way they are. In fact, if you aren't accustomed to how Linux organizes files, the directories can seem downright arbitrary with odd truncated names and, in many cases, redundant names. It turns out there's a method to this madness based on decades of UNIX convention, and in this article, I provide an introduction to the Linux directory structure. Although each Linux distribution has its own quirks, the majority conform (for the most part) with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS). The FHS project began in 1993, and the goal was to come to a consensus on how directories should be organized and which files should be stored where, so that distributions could have a single reference point from which to work. A lot of decisions about directory structure were based on traditional UNIX directory structures with a focus on servers and with an assumption that disk space was at a premium, so machines likely would have multiple hard drives.
