Subject: Software RAID on Linux with mdadm

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Now that we've completed our initial examination of the basics of RAID levels (including Nested RAID) it's time to turn our attention to RAID functionality on Linux using software. In this article we will be discussing mdadm -- the software RAID administration tool for Linux. It comes with virtually every Linux distribution and has some unique features that many hardware RAID cards don't.

Subject: Here's The Special AMD Present For Ubuntu Users

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

As talked about at length yesterday, the Catalyst 11.3 driver that was just released is not compatible with the X.Org Server 1.10 final ABI. What this means is that this proprietary Linux driver update will not work on Ubuntu 11.04, Fedora 15, and other Linux distributions experiencing major updates. AMD for at least the past seven Ubuntu releases has been seeding Canonical with driver pre-releases to meet the support deadline on new versions of this popular Linux operating system. Over last night, they did this once more...

Subject: Using Gallium3D On AMD FirePro Workstation GPUs

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

How well do AMD's FireGL/FirePro workstation graphics cards work with the open-source graphics drivers for Linux? It's something we never have really focused on up to this point, since after all, most workstation users are satisfied with using proprietary display drivers on Linux. It is the workstation market that drives the proprietary Linux driver development after all for AMD and NVIDIA, and that is really the focus of development, not Linux gamers or enthusiasts. But curiosity got the best of me, so here's what happens if you try to use an expensive FirePro graphics card with the open-source driver stack and the Mesa Gallium3D driver.

Subject: Hotz Ably Fights for His Motion to Dismiss - Tells Court SCEA's Case Doesn't Belong in CA

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

George Hotz's lawyers are truly fighting hard for him. This case, SCEA v. Hotz, they forcefully tell the court in a newly filed Reply [PDF] to SCEA's opposition brief along with Objections [PDF] to various SCEA declarations, doesn't belong in California. One important reason is that Hotz is just an individual, not an international corporation with bags of money to spend on litigation, and it's obvious that New Jersey would be more convenient for him. He lives there. The actions complained of happened there. Having a blog on the Internet shouldn't make you suable in every state in the union.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The writer prefer KDE over Gnome, but:"Why KDE? I don't know... I sat down once and decided to put all the pros and contras of KDE and GNOME in one list. Result was quite strange... Kubuntu had same number of "pros" and "contras" on KDE side. While GNOME only gave me "pros" and no significant "contra". So, there is something irrational which makes me to choose KDE when I boot my laptop."To me is just a matter of your own likes, but what do you think?

Subject: Software RAID on Linux with mdadm

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

We’ve spent a great deal of time examining various RAID levels such as RAID-0, 1, 5, and 6, and Nested RAID levels such as RAID-10, 50, 51, 61, and 60 or even the more complicated RAID-100 or RAID-160. In all of these discussions we have assumed there was a RAID “controller” that performed the various RAID operations. This includes sending chunks of data to the appropriate disks, computing parity, hot-swapping, disk fail-over, checking read transactions to determine if the read was successfully and if not, declaring that disk as “down”, plus other important tasks related to RAID. All of these tasks require some sort of computation and have to be performed by a RAID controller.

The latest major revision to the Qt-based Krita painting application was released in late December, although due to the calendar timing and its packaging within a large KOffice release, it did not garner the attention it probably deserved. That was version 2.3.0. When the 2.3.1 point release came out in January, though, I decided to take a closer look.
