PCLinuxOS Preview Graphics

Got these going on my PCLOS system. Very clean and professional looking theme going here--nice work.

re: Graphics

The heartbeat thingy is pretty cool, but what's with the Brontosaurus in the circle? Looks like it has club feet, a snake head, and two tails.

I think the Brontosaurus is

I think the Brontosaurus is actually a charging bull. You are looking at it with the wrong eye, unless you are joking Smile

I think the Brontosaurus is

I think vonskippy need some new glasses to see the difference between a Brontosaurus and a Bull

lol

No BS, It's a Bull

A stylized image of a Texas longhorn bull. Older version of the image is named "dobie-bull.png". I think the bull image is named in honor (I'm just guessing), of the Texas writer and folklorist, James Frank Dobie.

Certainly an appropriate image since the primary guy for PCLinuxOS is Bill Reynolds (a.k.a. Texstar).

re: Bull

I don't see it. Maybe it's one of those 3D prints where you have to stare at it cross-eyed for a while?

re: bull

The snakehead is the tail and the two tails are the horns. It's kinda looks like it's poised to charge, ya know how they drop their heads to lead with their horns.

Oopsie

Ah! I had it flipped around. Much better. Although Dinosaurs are much cooler then bovines.

Skippy

It's Skippy the bull. moooooo

GNU Compiler and Bison 3.2.2 Release

  • Intel Cascade Lake Support Posted For The GCC Compiler
    Intel developers have submitted their GCC compiler enablement patch for the Cascade Lake 14nm CPUs due out starting in early 2019. The GNU Compiler Collection patch adds support for the -march=cascadelake target for generating optimized code for these upcoming server and enthusiast class processors.
  • Bison 3.2.2 released [stable]
    Bison 3.2 brought massive improvements to the deterministic C++ skeleton, lalr1.cc. When variants are enabled and the compiler supports C++11 or better, move-only types can now be used for semantic values. C++98 support is not deprecated. Please see the NEWS below for more details. Many thanks to Frank Heckenbach for paving the way for this release with his implementation of a skeleton in C++17, and to Nelson H. F. Beebe for testing exhaustively portability issues.

Industrial dev board builds on Raspberry Pi CM3

Kontron announced an industrial-focused “Passepartout” development kit built around a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Light and equipped with a dual Ethernet, HDMI, CAN, 1-Wire, RPi 40-pin connectors. Kontron announced its first Raspberry Pi based product. The Passepartout — which is French for “goes everywhere” and the name of Phileas Fogg’s valet in Jules Verne’s “Around the World in Eighty Days” — builds upon the Linux-driven Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Light (CM3L). The Light version lacks the 4GB of eMMC flash of the standard CM3 module but still supports eMMC or microSD storage. The CM3L is otherwise identical, with features including a quad-core, 1.2GHz Broadcom BCM2837 and 1GB of LPDDR2 RAM. Read more

Patches For The Better Spectre STIBP Approach Revised - Version 7 Under Review

Version 7 of the task property based options to enable Spectre V2 userspace-userspace protection patches, a.k.a. the work offering improved / less regressing approach for STIBP, is now available for testing and code review. Tim Chen of Intel sent out the seventh revision to these patches on Tuesday night. Besides the Spectre V2 app-to-app protection modes, these patches include the work for disabling STIBP (Single Thread Indirect Branch Predictors) when enhanced IBRS (Indirect Branch Restricted Speculation) is supported/used, and allowing for STIBP to be enabled manually and just by default for non-dumpable tasks.
