Linux Mint 11 RC Screenchots Tour

Filed under
Linux

With the release of Ubuntu 11.04, at the end of April, the countdown for Linux Mint new release had begun. As Lefebvre, the founder and developer of Linux Mint, announced the release candidate Katya for version 11 of Linux Mint, the moment of discovery is here.

Ver 11 Linux Mint Katya has…

The suspense of Unity or GNOME is coming on Linux Mint latest Ver 11 was quickly dispelled as it quickly became clear that despite the Ubuntu 11.04 ‘Natty Narwhal’ base, it was GNOME that finally resides on it. However, the developers have decided to go with GNOME 2.32 the earlier robust desktop environment rather than the latest GNOME 3.

Why GNOME 2 continues

Lefebvre confirmed that GNOME 3 was deferred due to its just-minted flavor, lack of major distributions/releases; poor feedback to use it to support the Linux Mint 11 tools and applications developed for full fledged compatibility with GTK.

Review: Kdenlive, the Linux video editor I want to use

There once was a time when video editing on Linux was an elusive beast. Well, that's not exactly true. Professional-level video editing on Linux has been solid and mature for many years now, with the likes of Lightworks, Cinelerra and Blender. But the "hobbyist" video editor market just wasn't very well-served. There were video editors out there… but they were often buggy and lacking in critical features. Read more

Atomic Mode-Setting/Display Support Progresses In Linux 3.20

Going along with many DRM graphics driver improvements for Linux 3.20 is the seemingly never-ending work on atomic mode-setting. Atomic mode-setting/display support has been talked about for years but is finally nearing a reality within the mainline Linux kernel with drivers like the Tegra DRM driver adding initial support. With Linux 3.20 there's the actual Linux DRM Atomic IOCTL and along with other changes means that Linux user-space can start accessing the atomic support, albeit it's hidden for now behind the experimental drm-atomic=1 flag.

Industrial box-PC takes Linux-on-Haswell to extremes

The Acnodes “FES8670″ is a rugged industrial box-PC that runs Linux on a 4th Gen Core CPU, and offers four GbE ports and numerous storage and display ports. So far, we’ve still only seen one company (Congatec) announce products based on Intel’s new 5th Generation Core (“Broadwell”) processors, although we expect many more to break cover at Embedded World next month. Yet, there’s still plenty of juice left in the 4th Gen Haswell Core chips, which drive Acnodes’s powerhouse FES8670. Earlier Acnodes industrial PCs have included the Atom D2550-based FES2215.
