Subject: Humble Bundle for Android 3 is here

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

Recently, the new edition of the Humble Bundle for Android was released. While the new game compilation contains mainly the games for the Android platform, there are also Linux, Mac OS X and Windows versions of the games included. As usual it's “pay what you want”. Furthermore all the games can be redeemed in the Ubuntu Software Center and on Steam.

Subject: Intel Ivy Bridge: GCC 4.8 vs. LLVM/Clang 3.2 SVN

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

Kicking off the Linux benchmarks this weekend are some early numbers from the GCC 4.8 and LLVM/Clang 3.2 development compilers when running on Intel's latest-generation Core i7 "Ivy Bridge" processor. GCC 4.8 and LLVM/Clang 3.2 are still months away from being formally released, but this article provides a glimpse at how the open-source compiler battle is panning out.

Subject: Steam to debut Big Picture beta soon, make couch potatoes of PC gamers

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

According to Gabe Newell, the distribution services' couch-ready UI is almost upon us. "We should have both Linux and 10-foot betas out there fairly quickly," he told Geoff Keighley in the latest episode of GTTV, noting that the interface would be available on both the current iteration of Steam and the upcoming Linux version. Newell said that Valve has been showing the interface to hardware manufacturers, but ultimately feels that the community will decide its fate.

Subject: Coming Soon: A 'Pure GNOME' Ubuntu Linux

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

While Ubuntu Linux has embraced the Unity desktop in recent iterations, there have long been derivatives based on KDE, Xfce, and LXDE, for example. Now, it looks like fans of GNOME may soon get a community flavor of their very own. “At the Ubuntu Developer Summit in May, several of us that work with GNOME in Ubuntu discussed the need for a Ubuntu community derivative similar to Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and others but which will try to ship a relatively pure GNOME experience,” explained Ubuntu developer Jeremy Bicha in a recent post on the GNOME mailing list.

Subject: How to query a DNS server from Linux with DIG, by examples

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

In the past I’ve published articles on how to do a benchmark with namebench to see what’s the fastest DNS server for you and how to crypt your DNS traffic if you use Opendns but I’ve never done a comprehensive guide of the command dig, probably the best command you can have on the command line to query a DNS server, so today I want to show you the basic usage of this command and some trick, using examples that you can re-use for your goals.

Subject: SteamOS / Steam Box? Yes / No / Maybe / Both

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

A what-if piece over at Rock Paper Shotgun suggested the idea of Valve making a SteamOS. While a nice idea, I’m going to go with no. Some words from Gabe Newell in an interview with GT.TV lead me to think that my earlier speculation is closer to the truth, but not quite right either. Valve is not making a SteamOS, nor is it making a SteamBox. All they’re doing is enabling hardware manufacturers to build Steam-enabled custom hardware, whether it be “Steam Certified” desktop PCs or settop boxes.

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

Thanks to Ngewi Fet and Google Summer of Code 2012 for Gnome, we get the GnuCash App for our Android device. Ok, this is not the most exciting Android App that you will find, but it is Open Source and it can “sync” in a way with your Linux Desktop.It is great that Gnome Apps earn some of the Android sparkle and so more people can get familiar and get known Gnome through the successful Google’s OS.

Subject: A Book On Linux Graphics Driver Development

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

Next month in Nürnberg prior to the start of XDC2012, X.Org developers hope to get together and write a book about graphics driver development. An X.Org book sprint is planned in the two days leading up to XDC2012 at the SUSE offices in Nürnberg, Germany. This book sprint isn't starting from ground zero but rather the developers that show up to participate will be working off of the documentation that was begun by Stéphane Marchesin a while back (here's a PDF of where it's at today).

Subject: Get to know Mageia better!

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

Hmm, it is hard to address the target group of Mageia. A quick answer would be that targets to a lot of people. Yes, Mageia is one of the most popular distros around and is relatively a new one. Mageia isn’t for enthusiasts, isn’t about the latest packages, isn’t a LTS and it doesn’t ship any commercial support, but is user friendly. The best words I can find to describe it, would be a Community Edition of Canonical’s Ubuntu.

Subject: How to Setup A Document Versioning Tool With Subversion, Part 2 Linux

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

In our last installment, we created a set-up allowing you to keep all the various revisions to your documents, without the need to resort to tricks like appending file names with version numbers. So now you have this repository of documents, how do you take advantage of it? In this article we’ll show you how to recall a previous version of a document (we’re all familiar with thinking putting something brilliant in a document, only to have it overwritten), as well as how to download all your in-process work to another machine.
