Filed under
Hardware
Software

phoronix: The open-source Avivo driver is currently bound to supporting the ATI R500 GPU family and with efforts now being focused on the RadeonHD driver, this reverse-engineered driver will likely never support the newer GPUs.

Running Nvidia display drivers with X.Org 7.3

Filed under
HowTos

linuxinsight: I'm pretty convinced that X.Org 7.3 will work well for people, unless you're using proprietary display drivers, that is. I feel forced to use Nvidia drivers, because open source ones are quite slow (nv) or not yet ready for general usage (nouveau).

The new version 0.3.3 of the Windows 2000 clone already has a lot to offer and has significantly evolved in almost all areas compared to the last release. The developers have made a lot of progress in the lower system area (i. e. the NT® Kernel) as well as in the application segment. Let’s have a look at some new features!

Ultimate Linux on the Desktop

Over the past couple of years I have set out to create the ultimate Linux on the desktop experience for myself. Obviously everyone who runs Linux has their own opinions on things. What this post will outline is my ultimate Linux on the desktop experience. So just remember that before you get your panties in a knot on HackerNews because you live and die by Xmonad (I live and die by i3, fight me). First, you should already know that I run everything on my laptop in containers. I outlined this in my posts about Docker Containers on the Desktop and Runc Containers on the Desktop.

Dedoimedo interviews: DistroWatch

I don't there's much for me to add. Jesse provided a very detailed drilldown into what DistroWatch is, what it does, and most importantly, how you can help, whether you're a reader or a distro developer. Getting involved may be intimidating, but it also has its rewards. And there's potential for blooming tech writers to spread their wings, too. Anyhow, I'd like to thank Jesse, introspect on our uncanny pseudo-genetic similarity, and go back to plotting and hatching additional stories, reviews and interviews. To wit, if you have any ideas or recommendations, or if you crave some spotlight yourself, feel free to contact me. WARP 9, engage. Read more

GoboLinux: A Linux Distribution With New Filesystem Hierarchy

GoboLinux introduces a lot of new ideas and designs into the Linux distributions world. Things like the filesystem hierarchy and the compiling scripts are amazing examples of what “modernizing” Linux distributions may really mean. However, the distribution wasn’t intended to be “user-friendly” or “ready-out-of-the-box”. Because of this, it can be said actually that the distribution manages to achieve its goals. An experianced user with a lot of time would definitely enjoy using and tweaking GoboLinux to fit his needs and learn in his way. Read more
