SuSE 10.1 RC3 or Final

Filed under
News

The OpenSuSE Roadmap for their 10.1 release schedule has been updated: It now appears that a RC3 might be in the works and possibly announced on Apr 28.

It's still being quite vague about the final release date by sticking by the open source creedo, 'It will be released when ready.' Actually the Roadmap states, "Further release candidates and the final goldmaster will be announced when ready." There were no further announcements to the mailing lists or forums either at this time.

yeah, it's shaping up nicely. RC2 was looking good, I figured they were about ready to go gold. I'm anxious to see the changelog for rc3 and see what they've improved this time.

Yeah, it's becoming quite the dominant distro. Biggest problem is their lack of multimedia support. I got an email this morning reaffirming that thought today. Too bad that doesn't work out of the box real well and folks end up needing to fiddle with howtos and download/install rpms etc to get full capabilities.

But otherwise, it's killer! Big Grin

NVIDIA Posts Tegra Gallium3D Patch For K1+ Support

NVIDIA has out a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise... New Mesa code for Tegra K1 GPUs and newer! While NVIDIA has already pushed Nouveau Gallium3D support patches for Tegra K1 after providing Tegra K1 DRM/KMS kernel driver support, there's more code coming out today. NVIDIA's Thierry Reding sent out a nearly two thousand line Mesa patch that introduces a new Tegra Gallium3D driver. This "Tegra" code at gallium/drivers though isn't a complete 3D driver -- the Tegra K1+ still use the NVIDIA NVC0 Gallium3D driver for the actual rendering. This patch sets up a screen and forwards on the work to the Nouveau Gallium3D driver given that the Tegra K1 uses a Kepler-derived graphics processor. This work is needed since the GPU and display are exposed as separate devices by this NVIDIA ARM SoC. Read more

This week I posted some OS X 10.10 vs. Ubuntu 14.10 benchmarks from a Haswell-based Apple MacBook Air. Ubuntu 14.10 out-of-the-box was largely performing better than Apple's latest OS X Yosemite release while today are some more Ubuntu OpenGL numbers tossed in for the graphics tests when upgrading against Intel's latest HD Graphics code for Linux.
