Kernel: New Stable Releases and Hardware Support, Atomics Support in eBPF

  • Linux 5.10.9
  • Linux 5.4.91
  • Linux 4.19.169
  • Linux is Finally on Apple M1...Kind Of.

    Half of the reason to buy a Mac is to get native support for macOS, but that doesn’t mean Mac owners don’t also suffer from the grass-is-greener syndrome. While Apple’s operating system is known for being casual friendly and is also the OS system people who grew up on its products might be more familiar with, PC users are always quick to point out that the extra steps it adds to actions like installing programs can slow down more serious work. It’s currently possible to emulate Windows for ARM on Apple’s latest M1 Macs, but what if you want to take your power user cred a step further and use Linux on your new M1 Mac?

  • Pioneer DJM-750 DJ Mixer Handling For Linux Is En Route - Phoronix

    With Linux 5.11 came Pioneer DDJ-RR DJ controller support while for Linux 5.12 additional Pioneer DJ equipment will be supported. The latest Pioneer DJ kit to be supported by the Linux kernel is the Pioneer DJM-750 digital audio mixer. The Pioneer DJM-750 is a 4-channel mixer with built-in 24-bit / 96 kHz USB sound card and the same 32-bit DSP found in Pioneer's higher end models like the DJM-900NXS.

  • 2021 Could Be The Year That AMD Radeon Graphics Can Hot Unplug Gracefully On Linux - Phoronix

    It's been nearly one year that AMDGPU patches have been around to better handle GPU hot unplugging on Linux. The use-case for that being either removal via sysfs such as if then assigning the GPU to a VM or for external GPUs such as connected via Thunderbolt. Those patches are still baking but the latest iteration of the work has now been published by AMD. Currently the hot removal of AMD Radeon GPUs under Linux can result in a kernel oops or system hangs or application hangs, among related headaches. Reportedly, Windows doesn't handle the GPU hot-unplug situation much better.

  • Linux 5.12 To Add Atomics Support To The Promising eBPF - Phoronix

    The eBPF in-kernel virtual machine that allows for handling sandboxed "programs" within the Linux kernel continues on its stellar upward trajectory. eBPF remains one of the most exciting and revolutionary changes in recent years within the Linux kernel and new features continue to be tacked on to allow eBPF to fulfill more roles than the original BPF network packet filter use-case. Should you not be too familiar with eBPF, learn more on the technology at eBPF.io.

GNOME 40 Will Now Handle XWayland On-Demand By Default

Back in 2019 support was added to GNOME 3.34 to allow starting XWayland on-demand. With this opt-in feature, XWayland support would only be started up when needed (on-demand) for running X11 clients. That support has now matured enough where for the upcoming GNOME 40 it will be enabled by default. As of today in Mutter 40 is the enabling by default of the XWayland on-demand handling. This comes following a more robust check for helping to ensure X11 clients are no longer active prior to terminating XWayland. That plus other work now allows it to be enabled by default. Read more

Games: Bugs Under Ubuntu, Godot Showcase (Resolutiion), and Volcanoids

  • Embarrassing Bugs

    Well, this is embarrassing! I recently filed a bug against an open source project because I genuinely thought it was broken. It was (almost, probably, entirely) my fault. I thought I’d fess up and explain what happened. It might be useful for others. As I mentioned yesterday, I recently upgraded my Ubuntu machines, including my main desktop. It’s a funky Skull Canyon NUC with a weird hybrid Intel / AMD GPU setup and an external nVidia card in an enclosure. [...] Well, this is embarrassing!

  • Steampunk survival game Volcanoids has a huge combat upgrade | GamingOnLinux

    Stuck on an island where the volcano is erupting constantly, Volcanoids is an interesting setting for a survival game that gives you a big moving drill for a base. After sticking in co-op to the Early Access game a while back, the team at Volcanoid (yes the team is named like the game), have now boosted the combat in the game to make it actually a lot more interesting. To say this is a huge update would be quite the understatement. They added in aiming down sights, weapon recoil, bullet drop and spread, hit indicators, actual projectiles (no hit scans), lots of new animations, new guns and…you get the idea. [...] For me it's probably one of the most exciting open-world survival games (next to Valheim) supported on Linux.

    Most of us are often confused that what is the difference between apt and apt-get command. This confusion is common to all users, including newbies and experienced users.

In this article, we will show the difference between them. Make a note: Please don’t confuse the apt command with the APT, both are not the same. Before discussing apt and apt-get, let us discuss what is APT.

  • [Older] How to connect to an FTP server using Python

    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) needs no presentations: it is among the most used file transfer methods between one or more clients and a server. By design it supports both anonymous access and authentication, but in its most basic form it doesn’t provide data encryption, that’s why it is often secured via TLS.
