Congatec proposes API and middleware spec for COMs

LXer - Thu, 2017-05-11 04:23
Congatec has launched a “ComX” standard for computer-on-module API and middleware spanning COM Express, Qseven, and SMARC form-factors. At the Embedded Systems Expo & Conference (ESEC) in Japan this week (May 10-12), Congatec announced an “extended standardization initiative” called ComX. The proposed standard builds upon existing computer-on-module hardware standards such as COM Express, Qseven, and […]

As an evangelist for open organizations and an ambassador for open principles, I am fully aware of the challenges organizations go through when they're trying to effect lasting change. Changing deep-rooted organizational culture should not be taken lightly. It's something people should weigh very carefully, debate fully, and then embrace wholly.read more

Raspberry Pi Zero W fixes networking omission

LXer - Thu, 2017-05-11 02:06
Issue 40 of the MagPi magazine changed everything I thought I knew about computing and technology. In the 1990s and early 2000s, tech publications drew subscribers by giving freebies with their magazines. First, with CDs and then DVDs, magazines came with free demos of games, shareware applications, and even limited internet service provider memberships. In the open source world, magazines gave away Linux distributions ready to be booted and installed. Although it's not done as much in the U.S.read more

Marek Threads RadeonSI Gallium3D, Big Performance Gains For Many Games

Phoronix - Thu, 2017-05-11 01:44
Not to be confused with the recently-landed OpenGL threaded dispatch support that recently landed in Mesa Git, Marek Olšák has now published a set of patches for threading Gallium3D for RadeonSI: moving the execution of all Gallium3D pipe_context calls into a separate CPU thread...

I had the Linux Dream, my destiny is confirmed.

I just woke up from a nap (fun fact about narcolepsy, it makes you dream during naps) and I remember a big part of it. I was in a virtual reality environment, helping my mother with her job, which was apparently fixing rope bridges in virtual reality environments.

So, according to my mom, we had to tie the knots manually. I was incredulous, because then it'd be just as hard as fixing rope bridges in reality. I said that they probably programmed an automatic way.

I then brought two ends of rope together and said, I kid you not, "sudo tie knot". And it worked.

The craziest thing is that I don't even own a Unix-based operating system. I've never used the sudo command in real life. But I guess this is a sign that I should consider it. I'm going to college from high school in the fall for computer science, and Windows 10 has proven itself remarkably awful. Plus, I don't want to anger the PC gods.

(I don't know if this was the right place to post this, but I wanted to tell someone because I thought this experience was quite funny.)

Finally, I think it’s worth pointing out that Linux is not a product, it’s a community. Windows and Mac people have a hard time wrapping their heads around that. They’re used to venting frustration at Microsoft and Apple. If they do that in a Linux forum, they will most likely get flamed. It’s important to understand that attacking Linux is like attacking the entire community. Is Linux perfect? Hell no! Is there much room for improvement? Absolutely! How you present your critiques and/or ask for help makes all the difference in the world. I have found that a positive and constructive attitude goes a long, long way. I have had developers bend over backward to help me with a problem or point me to an alternative solution just because I came to them with respect and didn’t point fingers.

Getting AMD Drivers to work under Ubuntu

Reddit - Thu, 2017-05-11 01:06

Hey guys,

I recently switched to Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS from my Windows 10 machine, which I now only use for gaming.

I already posted this in the Ubuntu Reddit, but no one seems to know a solution, so I thought I'll try my luck here.

I tried to install the AMD Pro-GPU driver for 16.04, did everything as I should and then rebooted. After rebooting, I had a constant flickering on both connected monitors, even when not moving the mouse or using any specific program. That's why I uninstalled it and after rebooting everything seems to work fine again.

So my question is, is there any problem for me not using the official driver (also perfomancewise)? Cause right now it just is impossible to use my computer with it installed. Furthermore, I used the following command to set the refreshrate of my 144hz monitor to, well, 144hz :

xrandr --output DVI-0 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 144

Works okayish, some flickering and not as smooth as it should be compared to win 10, and only works till I log out. Using a batch file right now, but isn't there a more convenient solution to this?

Lastly, here is my current setup:

  • CPU: Intel i7 6700K
  • GPU: AMD R9 390
  • Motherboard: MSI Gaming M5
  • Ram: 16 GB DDR-4 3200 Mhz

  • Monitor1: Samsung Syncmaster 24" Full HD 60hz

  • Monitor2: Acer Predator 24" 144 HZ Full HD

I'm glad for any help!

PSA: Using Chrome/Chromium? Experiencing Laggy Video Playback? Check to see if hardware rendering is enabled.

Reddit - Thu, 2017-05-11 00:58

For the past year or so I've been wondering why video playback on Chromium was laggy on some websites. Turns out that Chromium was not using hardware acceleration due to a blacklist.

To check go to chrome://gpu and see if "Video Decode" is using hardware acceleration. If it is set to software then go to chrome://flags and enable "Override software rendering list" then restart the browser.

Install CSF/LFD to help secure your Linux server

There are many things that Linux admins do to try and keep their servers as secure as possible. Adding a good firewall and intrusion detection software package is always a great idea. Also, it will amaze you as to how many bad guys are attempting to get in.
