The next generation of AMD GPU's have launched, and it begins with the AMD RX 480. Benchmarks are now out there along with plenty of info.
I don't have the card myself as I have no contacts at AMD, but luckily Phoronix managed to bag a card and he's done plenty of testing as you can imagine. I will be referencing the green site due to other sites obviously focusing on Windows.
Today SteamOS has a new beta, which brings a much newer Nvidia driver to the table and a fresher build of the new AMD PRO driver.
The Nvidia driver is now 367.27 and AMD GPU PRO is now at RC2. The Nvidia driver was especially out of date, so to have both updated is really going to help it.
Today, June 29, 2016, Valve's engineers working on the SteamOS gaming operating system based on the stable Debian GNU/Linux 8 "Jessie" distribution have released a new Beta update.
SteamOS Brewmaster update 2.83 is now available for early adopters, it was pushed to the brewmaster_beta, and it comes one month after the release of the previous Beta version, SteamOS 2.80, to enhance both the Nvidia and AMD Radeon graphics drivers.
While it's sad to see it as a stretch-goal, I have big faith in Nightdive Studios due to their previous good support of Linux. System Shock is being remade and it's probably going to be funded quite well.
System Shock is a complete remake of the genre defining classic from 1994 built by a team of industry veterans. Remember Citadel.
Welcome to the “Container technologies in Fedora” series! This is the first article in a series of articles that will explain how you can use the various container technologies available in Fedora. This first article will deal with systemd-nspawn.
Fedora 24 was released last week, so of course I had to upgrade my machines. As has become the norm, there weren’t any serious issues, but I hit a few annoyances this time around. The first was due to packages in the RPMFusion repos not being signed. This isn’t Fedora’s fault, as RPMFusion is a completely separate project. And it was temporary: by the time I upgraded my laptop on Sunday night, the packages had all been signed.
I’ve been working on a shirt design for this year’s Fedora Flock in Krakow, Poland and figured that I’d share what I’ve put together! I’m also including some of my earlier attempts at the design as well to show my thought process as well. Ps. for those who may not be familiar with landmarks and iconic images of Krakow (and yes, I too am one of you too… much research was needed!) here’s a list of some of the imagery that I tied to incorporate in the designs.
Honestly, nothing from the features in the announcement of the Fedora 24 release didn't manage to excite me intro upgrading my desktop from an old, out-of-support Fedora. It's main task is to edit digital photography and for some years a Linux solution is decent at it.
We have upgraded our beloved evil super villain IRC bot on freenode from an old version of supybot-gribble to a new shiny version of limnoria ( https://github.com/ProgVal/Limnoria ). This doesn’t change much in the interface, but it does mean we are using something that is maintained and gets updates and is a good deal more secure. If you notice problems please do let us know with a Fedora Infrastructure ticket.
2 days ago, I woke up to a mail from Google saying that I passed the mid term evaluations of GSoC and could continue working towards my final evaluation. "What a wonderful way to kick start a day, I thought".
