Gaming On Linux Loses Editor, Plagiarist to Blame.

Gaming

Gaming On Linux, a popular online portal for Linux gamers, shut down today. And it’s a shame. For all intents and purposes, The Powerbase is shut down as well — but not for today. Gaming on Linux has shut down because of the incessant troll behavior of the Gaming on Linux Podcast. It upsets me that the Editor of Gaming on Linux can’t just ignore it — but that’s beyond the scope of this rant. I am not so much reporting the news today as I am speaking out against the rampant, virus-like stupidity that is the Linux Game Cast. The crew at Linux Game Cast are some of the most unhappy, loneliest, skill-less vagina repellants I’ve ever encountered on the Internet. And I’m mostly just talking about Pedro…

Ubuntu

It didn’t happen overnight, but Steam’s catalogue of Linux games has grown significantly over the last few years, no doubt helped by the release Value’s Debian-powered SteamOS.

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.
