OpenSuse 10.2

Filed under
SUSE

I remember installing a Linux distro for the first time back in April 2000. I had bought the magazine Chip(now renamed to Digit), which had come with a cd of Suse 6.3 Linux. I was curious to know how other operating systems looked like. So after a lot of convincing at home I finally installed it. I was shocked with the number of applications that came out of the box. It was amazing to use another operating system. Forward to 2007, and I go buy ‘Linux For You’ and they give Open Suse 10.2 - As expected I was curious to see what they had done with their distro. I was impressed with Ubuntu 6.06LTS. But it did not detect my serial mouse out of the box which was a bit painful. It also did not detect my onboard video card - because of which I was stuck in a resolution of 640×480. And I couldn’t get my reliance modem work on Ubuntu. So I had plenty of reasons to try a new distro.

I pop in the Open Suse 10.2 DVD and reboot.

Transcend Wifi SD Card Is A Tiny Linux Server

He read a post about these cards on the OpenWRT forums. They’re all a similar configuration of a relatively large amount of memory (compared to the usual embedded computer), a WiFi chip, and an ARM processor running a tiny Linux install. The card acts as a WiFi access point with a little server running on it, and waits for the user to connect to it via a website. It also has a mode where it will connect to up to three access points specified by the user, but it doesn’t actually have a way to tell the user what its IP address is; which is kind of funny.

The OpenGL Speed & Performance-Per-Watt From The Radeon RX 480 To Radeon HD 4850/4870

With the Radeon RX 480 Linux review now being out of the way and our various other RX 480 Linux benchmarks, the latest results I have to share with being a benchmarking fanatic are RX 480 results with high-end AMD GPU tests of each generation going back to the Radeon HD 4850/4870 (RV770) days. This article has high-end GPUs from the RX 480 to RX 200, HD 7900, HD 6900, HD 6800, HD 5800, and HD 4800 series compared side-by-side with the latest open-source Radeon Linux graphics driver code. Not only is the raw performance being looked at but the system power consumption was also being polled in real-time for looking at the performance-per-Watt too. For any other benchmarking fanatics curious about the Radeon GPU evolution over the past eight years (RV770 launch in 2008), here are the numbers to enjoy. Read more
