  • This Week In Solus - Install #43

    We’ve been hard at work after last week’s snapshot on various items. We got some early reports of hardware incompatibilities with Wayland as well as issues on the GNOME edition of Wayland breaking important functionality like the ability to re-login after a logout.

The new Q4OS 'Orion' 1.8.4 stable release is out to implement several improvements and fixes.

  • How to Safely and Securely Back Up Your Linux Workstation

    Even seasoned system administrators can overlook Linux workstation backups or do them in a haphazard, unsafe manner.

    Let’s explore each of these methods in more depth. You can also download the entire set of recommendations as a handy guide and checklist.

  • Google zero-trust security framework goes beyond passwords

    With a sprawling workforce, a wide range of devices running on multiple platforms, and a growing reliance on cloud infrastructure and applications, the idea of the corporate network as the castle and security defenses as walls and moats protecting the perimeter doesn’t really work anymore. Which is why, over the past year, Google has been talking about BeyondCorp, the zero-trust perimeter-less security framework it uses to secure access for its 61,000 employees and their devices.

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days.

But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more
