  • The HTC Vive and Valve's SteamVR don't yet support Linux and SteamOS

    The HTC Vive headset and Valve’s SteamVR are finally released and shipping! You might expect that the HTC Vive works with Valve’s own SteamOS and Linux, but it doesn’t. It’s Windows-only for now, just like the Oculus Rift.

  • Paws: A Shelter 2 Game & The Lonesome Fog both now available on Linux & SteamOS

    Paws: A Shelter 2 Game is a standalone, single player, adventure, platformer set in the world of Shelter 2. The Lonesome Fog is a living book that seeks to expand on the concept of storytelling and explores the plight of a young cub trapped in a cycle of fear, cowardice and uncertainty.

  • ARK: Survival Of The Fittest the free online survival arena is now on Linux & SteamOS

    ARK: Survival Of The Fittest, the spin off from ARK: Survival Evolved is now available on Linux & SteamOS, it's free too. Completely free that is, no pay for anything here as they are funded by the original ARK.

    This appeals to me much more than the original ARK game, as there will be more focus on action and taking down other players. That just seems more interesting than generally surviving to me.

    It might take you a while to get into a game, as you have to wait for everyone to either join or create a tribe before the game begins. Prepare to wait a while, as I joined a few with people just standing around doing nothing. I hope they implement a timer for people to join or create tribes so people can't spoil it for others.

  • There's an open source Standalone Steam Controller Driver

    I hope to see this project continue on and on, and eventually have it work alongside Steam as well. If you have the driver, you will need to disable it to use it properly inside of Steam, having that issue somehow sorted out by itself would be awesome without user interaction.

  • Survival game Rust adds female player models, assigns gender to Steam accounts at random

    Your gender is linked to your SteamID, so what you're assigned to you're essentially stuck with. I'm fine with this, as I understand it's just a game. Others however, are not happy with this change.

    I can understand both sides of the argument, people want their character to reflect them as an extension of themselves. I am a male in any game that lets me choose, simply because I also have that view of wanting it to represent me, but it's certainly not a deal-breaker.

How To Make Good Use Of 'grep' Command

​Linux and UNIX systems come with a shell command known as ‘grep’. This simply looks for a specified text, or pattern, in a file or an entire directory. The most common usage is for quickly searching a file for occurrences of a pattern, which can be in plain text, or in the form of a regular expression. Here, the patterns used will be simple text rather than regular expressions. Read

An Early Look At Linux 4.16 Performance On Five Systems

Here are some preliminary benchmarks of the Linux 4.16 development kernel compared to Linux 4.15 stable on five different systems. Last week I began testing out the Linux 4.16 kernel on a few different boxes and it's been going rather well (sans the ongoing AMD Raven Ridge Linux issues...). For some initial Linux 4.16 kernel benchmarks I have results today to share for a Core i5 6600K, Core i7 6800K, Xeon E3-1280 v5, Core i9 7980XE, and Ryzen 7 1800X as a few of the available boxes for testing. Tests on other hardware and a greater variety of tests will be coming in the days and weeks ahead as Linux 4.16 continues to stabilize. Read more

Oracle open-sources DTrace under the GPL

Oracle appears to have open-sourced DTrace, the system instrumentation tool that Sun Microsystems created in the early 2000s and which has been beloved of many-a-sysadmin ever since. As noted by developer Mark J. Wielaard, this commit by an Oracle developer shows that something is afoot. Read more
