openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 Live CDs

Filed under
SUSE

Stephan Kulow has created and uploaded Live CDs of the 1-CD installations for your pleasure: GNOME Live ISO, KDE Live ISO. He writes: “Please put ‘live CD’ into the summary of bug reports, so we don’t confuse them with the installation CDs. The Live CDs are still very early in development, but we would like to hear your feedback in general.“

..."linux" for both root and normal user (also named "linux").

(Upon cursory inspection: The KDE version includes some games from KDE 4, although "kpat" doesn't run. Almost everything else is from KDE 3.5.7. It includes a few new - to me - things, like "Jarnal," a Java notetaking app, which didn't run; the "KDE Groupware Wizard;" and the "KDE Network Folder Wizard." A cosmetic bug: OpenOffice.org's splash screen is black. Fortunately, it includes the blue wallpaper from versions 10.1 and 10.2, so you don't have to stay with the "green dust mite" default.)

LIBINPUT INTEGRATION IN KWIN/WAYLAND

Today I pushed my outstanding branch to get libinput support into kwin_wayland. Libinput is a very important part for the work to get a full Wayland session in Plasma which means we reached a very important milestone. As the name suggests it allows us to process input events directly. KWin needs to forward the input events to the currently active application(s) and also interpret them before any other application gets them. E.g. if there is a global shortcut KWin should intercept it and not send it to an application. Read more

V is for Vivid

Release week! Already! I wouldn’t call Trusty ‘vintage’ just yet, but Utopic is poised to leap into the torrent stream. We’ve all managed to land our final touches to *buntu and are excited to bring the next wave of newness to users around the world. Glad to see the unicorn theme went down well, judging from the various desktops I see on G+. And so it’s time to open the vatic floodgates and invite your thoughts and contributions to our soon-to-be-opened iteration next. Our ventrous quest to put GNU as you love it on phones is bearing fruit, with final touches to the first image in a new era of convergence in computing. From tiny devices to personal computers of all shapes and sizes to the ventose vistas of cloud computing, our goal is to make a platform that is useful, versal and widely used. Read more

For the past year Mentor Graphics / Code Sourcery has been working on OpenACC 2.0 with GPU offloading as a big addition to the GNU Compiler Collection through their work with NVIDIA Corp. The offloading infrastructure has been worked on for a while and the code that soon looks like it will land is the NVPTX support. Read more
