KDE 3.4beta2 Released!

Filed under

Whooohooo! KDE 3.4 Beta 2 was released on February 9th, 2005. Read the official announcement. Come on Gentoo, where's the ebuilds!

UPDATE: Looks like the ebuilds are available at this time.

Let us know

Let us know how it goes. I'd like to start working on some rpms for unstable some time next week if I can resolve some other issues with pclos.

okie dokey, will do. :) -

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: Let us know

Well, the packages built once I took kdeaccessibility and kdewebdevelop outta the ebuild and it looks great. I used gentoo's kde-meta method and I was thinking it'd get slow with all the extra stuff I don't use, but it's still lightening fast on my system. I had to mv my .kde directory cuz it was a tad unstable at first, but it's stable now that I moved that. There are new eye candies and features. I really like it. KDE just keeps getting better and better. The only trouble I've seen is getting arts to play the ogg system sound files, no prob with wavs. ymmv. I put a few preliminary screenshots in the gallery, but maybe I'll do a better album when I get home from my real job. Tongue Anyway, I give it the big thumbs up!

Radeon DRM Linux 4.4 + Mesa 11.1 + DRI3 vs. AMD's Proprietary Driver

On Friday I posted benchmarks showing Nouveau's re-clocked performance relative to NVIDIA's proprietary driver for showing the performance potential of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 600/700 series with the performance state code there beginning to work. That article was followed by AMDGPU driver tests on Linux 4.4 against Catalyst for the newest AMD GPU tech that uses this newer Direct Rendering Manager driver. The third test now is comparing the Radeon DRM performance on Linux 4.4 against AMD's binary blob when using older AMD GCN GPUs as well as a Northern Islands GPU for reference. Read more

Would stock Android make you more likely to buy a Chinese smartphone?

Huawei, like any manufacturer that puts time and effort into a software layer of unique features and enhancements, believes wholeheartedly in the value its interface adds to the core Android experience. As Android nerds, we naturally tend to gravitate toward a stock experience that we can customize ourselves, but we are also aware that we are hardly representative of 'average' smartphone consumers.

KTU exams to run on open source software

All examinations of the A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) — which run on an online platform — would switch to open source software from the second semester onwards. For the first semester examinations, the KTU would use a proprietary, Microsoft, software. In response to demands from student organisations, the KTU has pushed back its first semester examinations by two days. The first of the examinations would now begin on December 4 instead of December 2. The first of the results would be published on December 19. Read more Also: KTU goes ahead with exam outsourcing
