Testing Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” Alpha 3

Filed under
Ubuntu

At this moment i’m testing the Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” Alpha 3 and wanted to give you a short heads up on my experience so far.

When the Alpha 3 was released i downloaded it and and made me a nice usb installer that didn’t work. I started my system and booted from the usb flash drive and waited for the installation setup screen that never showed up..

So i decided to shutdown my testing system and burn the image on a cd. When the cd was ready to use i booted my testing system from the cd rom player and there it was…. the installation screen. After entering my location and user name, system name and the partition i wanted to install Ubuntu 11.04 alpha 3 on it started installing. But when the installation was almost finished i got an error message that told me that it couldn’t continue with the installation because some files where missing and if i wanted i could file a bug report about it.

rest here

Run Linux on Android – part 2

If you want to make full use of Linux on your Android device, the best solutions require rooting it and unlocking its bootloader (see ‘Rooting questions’ section below). Whichever way you do it, this a major step as it will void your warranty and also runs a risk of ‘soft-bricking’ the device – although it can be made to work again if that happens. Another drawback is that unlocking the bootloader will factory-reset your phone and erase all its apps and data, so ensure that you make a backup beforehand. Read more

Is The Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Fast Enough For Steam On Linux Gaming?

While I generally don't recommend Nouveau for Linux gaming systems due to the re-clocking still being a huge work-in-progress to allow the graphics cards to effectively operate at their designated clock frequencies / performance states, I decided to run some fresh tests using the Linux 3.18 kernel and Mesa 10.4-devel to see where things stand today. For the tested Kepler graphics cards that support re-clocking, I tested them at their maximum obtained re-clocked frequencies where the system was stable -- generally still below their rated core/memory frequencies.
