  • MATE is not a complete desktop environment... MATE Applications tour

    It's time to continue our trip down memory lane with MATE. As I've said in a previous video, I spent a lot of time on GNOME 2 when it was the default on Ubuntu, and I know most of its default apps like the back of my hand. It's been 10 years since I've used GNOME 2 though, and MATE has evolved past that, so let's see you get out of the box, and if that's any good.

NVIDIA Tegra SoCs and NVIDIA's 495.44 Linux Driver

  • Linux Continues To Improve Power Management For Older NVIDIA Tegra SoCs To Avoid Overheating

    While the Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 SoCs are a decade old, the mainline Linux kernel continues working to improve the power management / thermal behavior for them in order to deal with heating issues for devices relying on these SoCs. We've seen improved thermal code for these hot and aging Tegra devices, among other work. Most recently though is now a set of Tegra power management patches revised for a 14th time that are seeking to be included with Linux 5.17 (not to be confused with the Linux 5.16 cycle kicking off in a week or two).

  • NVIDIA 495.44 stable driver is out for Linux, adds in GBM API support | GamingOnLinux

    Following on from the NVIDIA Beta 495.29.05 earlier this month, today NVIDIA has a fresh 495.44 stable driver release that builds upon it with some additional extras. This is the big one for Wayland fans, since it now works with the GBM API. With this API now hooked up, it should mean a better Wayland experience and it's something that the KDE Plasma team are already working on supporting too. You will also find in this release an indicator (on supported desktops) for showing Resizable BAR and the minimum Kernel version got bumped from 2.6.32 to 3.10.

  • NVIDIA 495.44 Linux Driver Released With GBM Support

    Following the NVIDIA 495 beta Linux driver from earlier this month, NVIDIA 495.44 is out today for Linux users as the stable release. The NVIDIA 495.44 Linux driver is the stabilized version of the earlier beta, that most notably introduces Generic Buffer Manager (GBM) support for sharply improving the proprietary driver's Wayland support.

GitHub stale bot considered harmful

One of GitHub’s “recommended” marketplace features is the “stale” bot. The purpose of this bot is to automatically close GitHub issues after a period of inactivity, 60 days by default. You have probably encountered it yourself in the course of your work. This is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea. Read more

Android Leftovers

liveslak-1.4.0 and new ISO images are available

It’s that time again for a fresh batch of ISOs for Slackware Live Edition. The ISO files are based on Slackware-current of “Sat Oct 23 18:57:30 UTC 2021” and using the liveslak-1.4.0 scripts. The Slackware-current snapshot on which the Live ISOs are based contains a Linux 5.14.14 kernel. This is not yet the pre-emptive variant of 5.14.14 which you can find in “./testing” inside today’s Slackware-current mirrors. However, you can use liveslak’s “upslak.sh” script to easily upgrade the kernel on your persistent USB Live if you want. It’ll be interesting to see how it improves real-time performance on the DAW Live platform. Read more
