Software

Phoronix: We thought it was already clear what graphics processors and drivers work and don't work with Linux desktop eye candy such as Beryl and Compiz, but it seems based upon the number of e-mails we have been receiving along with messages in community bulletin boards that the line isn't so clear after all.

Filed under
Microsoft

ComputerWorld: Microsoft’s posturing about its patents being infringed by open source software have received an almost universal reaction of scorn and disbelief. Comparisons were drawn with SCO’s similar, but rather more desperate claims from a couple of years ago.

Software

Fabrice Facorat: I've just have a look at the Gnome roadmap. The roadmap is giving the expected features of future versions of the gnome platform ( 2.20, 2.22, 2.x, 3.0 ). There are some interesting things to note:

Konversation, A simple irc client with a few surprising features.

Filed under
Software

DPotD: A sense of community remains is a powerful feature of Linux. Few tools reveal the power of open source, and none more clearly link this community better than IRC clients. Dozens of clients exist, from the small and powerful (irssi) to the complex (centericq). I prefer a lightweight gui: Konversation.

blogbeebe: Remember that iconic scene from the start of Poltergeist, with Carol-Anne sitting in front of a T.V. screen full of static and making that announcement in her high, sweet voice? That odd little feeling of dread? You don't know why, but the warning flags are going up in your mind. That's the way I feel with the official arrival of Dell's Ubuntu systems.

How to get the most out of your Intel graphics chip

Filed under
HowTos

the distrogue: It's well known that Intel's i8xx/i9xx/GMA9xx graphics chips, which are used in several types of laptops, don't bring their own on-chip RAM, preferring to pillage it from the system's memory. For most users, 4 megabytes of VRAM is fine, but gamers will clearly want more than that! Here's how to do it:

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
