Im still having some printer, network printer and usb issues with pclinuxos updates. I've been digging into hotplug and udev and have gotten a few more printers functional now. Usbkeys are still dead and I know it is related to udev and hotplug. Im hoping these issues will clear out in the next few days and I am able to cut an updated iso.

I also found xorg 6.8.2 released today so I built a set of binaries and uploaded them to the premuim server and ibiblio.org. Tonight I noticed in the forums a person who has the unichrome video card that will only go 800x600 so I downloaded the r30 unichrome driver release and added to my next build of xorg 6.8.2-2tex which I will post tomorrow. Hopefully his video will be able to go to a higher resolution.

There was a posting on one of the kde mailing lists about adding export KDE_NO_IPV6=1 to /usr/bin/startkde that might improve the performance of KDE. I tried it and had Sal give it a try on his machine but neither of us could see any difference.

Tom sent a few emails about some good updates to the mklivecd scripts. He has done a tremendous job of getting these scripts updated. Ivan and Tom almost have unionfs working with the livecd making the cdr appear writable like a hard drive. It seems to be working with fluxbox but not yet with KDE.

I finally got around to jrangels new logo graphic for pclinux. I think is looks pretty good and I posted a poll to get some user feedback. I'd like to get away from the little blue penquin due to some possible future problems using it.

  • When you need the numbers just right – benchmark and profiling applications in the Snap Store | Ubuntu

    The world of software is a vast and complex one, often too difficult to easily assess by human intuition alone. Which is why detailed and accurate measurements of software behavior are essential in helping us understand and gauge how well our applications perform. The Snap Store has a fair share of productivity tools and utilities, including a wide range of benchmarking and profiling tools. These are designed to help developers, system administrators and hardcore enthusiasts get a precise sense of their software, whether as part of research and design or for troubleshooting ongoing problems in production environments. Let’s have a little tour.
