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

Today marks five years since the revolutionary AMD Catalyst Linux graphics driver was announced to the world by Phoronix. While the driver still had a lot of work ahead, it was September 2007 that brought the brand new Catalyst Linux driver that shared more code with the Catalyst Windows driver and ushered in a new era for AMD with providing same-day Linux driver support, performance improvements, and new functionality to match the Windows driver...

We're entering the age of open source spectrometry, where the very chemical makeup of substances can be analyzed, compared, and improved. Is this the truest form of open source?

Subject: Customizing GTK themes just got easier!

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

You may think or imagine that customizing GTK themes requires special knowledge and a lot of time, but with my new tool it just got easier than ever!Here is a gtk theme configure tool that allows users to change some basic elements of a GTK theme (both GTK2 and GTK3) using a simple interface. You can select the colors of panels, menus and background and revert the changes with the pressing of a button. The toggle switch allows to just turn off the custom widgets without loosing the saved customization.

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

Last night, robots shut down the live broadcast of one of science fiction's most prestigious award ceremonies. No, you're not reading a science fiction story. In the middle of the annual Hugo Awards event at Worldcon, which thousands of people tuned into via video streaming service Ustream, the feed cut off — just as Neil Gaiman was giving an acceptance speech for his Doctor Who script, "The Doctor's Wife." Where Gaiman's face had been were the words, "Worldcon banned due to copyright infringement." What the hell?

With Android controlling the vast majority of smart phone marketshare, logic would dictate that developers would follow the eyeballs, but in fact, several studies suggest that developers follow the money -- and iOS has proven much more lucrative.

For those of you who are chomping at the bit, biting your nails and ruthlessly washing your cars over and over again in anxious anticipation of Steam for Linux, we’ve got good news for you. Database hacker Marlamin uncovered the first evidence of a Steam for Linux build on Steam’s servers using using CDR Steam database parser. Steam’s beta carries an app id of 16549 and was uploaded just today.

Subject: nobody will do it for you (and therefore they will)

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

There's an interesting paradox in many social cooperations that is readily observable in open, participation-driven creative projects (for which open source software is often held up as the poster child): nobody will do it for you. In F/OSS, that assumption translates to things like "nobody will write the patch for you" or "nobody will fix that bug for you". It turns out that this is the only safe assumption to hold. But that idea flies in the face of reality: tens of thousands of bugs are fixed in Free software code bases around the world every year; huge numbers of features are added to free software code bases on a regular basis. Yet most of the people who use Free software did not perform any of the work that went into it, and those of us who do put effort into it are never responsible for more than a tiny, tiny fraction of the global result. So obviously people will and do make things for us. I have DVDs full of the stuff; I use it on all the computing devices I own every single day. You probably do as well.PS: A little update on Vivaldi

Subject: AMD Catalyst For Linux On The "Blacklist Of Junk"

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

While the Catalyst Linux graphics driver was overhauled five years ago, not everyone is satisfied with the closed-source AMD Radeon Linux graphics driver. Here's some interesting comments by a prominent Linux developer and his less than stellar Catalyst experience. Some interesting Linux graphics driver comments were shared this week in an email by a prominent open-source developer who's been involved with Linux since 1996 and is responsible for one of the window managers. When I was liaising between this developer and a prominent game company, he shared some interesting driver comments, which he's allowed me to republish on Phoronix.

Subject: Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal): What to Expect

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

Slowly but steadily, Ubuntu is catching up with its competitors. The Canonical-made distro is getting better and better with every release. Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” managed to silence some of the Unity critics to a large extent. And though, work still needs to be done to take on the mighty warriors at Redmond, it seems that Shuttleworth’s untiring endeavors have started coming to fruition. Ubuntu 12.10 recently baptized as Quantal Quetzal is already looking promising.

Subject: Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Ubuntu 12.04

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

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on Ubuntu 12.04. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline three solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second and third solution are very similar - both use a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.
