System76 goes Pop! Kernel 4.12 adds support for Vega, the Free Software Foundation certifies several new devices, and a handy guide for building your own PiCorder.

- Radeon RX Vega support, BFQ and Kyber schedulers, proper USB type C port management.
- One of the biggest changelogs ever.
- Great deal of it because of the RX Vega support.
- Initial open-source accelerated support for NVIDIA GTX 1K.
- I’m of the age to where i’m over distros.
- Give me something that boots and i’ll sort the rest.
- Pop!_OS is basically a GNOME skin-job with custom System76 drivers.
- While it’s good for them to no longer rely on Ubuntu I will say this.
- I don’t know a single person who purchased a pre built anything and didn’t immediately wipe it.
- Compared to system76, this isn’t just Xubuntu with a different wallpaper and theme.
- You get that, as well as plenty of tweaks, newer kernel version, optimized RAM and battery usage on their laptops.
- This is still not a good enough reason to release your own Yet Another Ubuntu-based Distro, but it’s still more justified than Pop!_OS
- That battery life claim is wicked-fishy.
- Send Pedro one and let him independently confirm.
- At least it’s XFCE based.
- Again, step #1 should always be WIPE the machine and install your OS of choice.
- Ah, yes! The one that only works on Cent/RHEL 6 and their default 2.6.x kernel.
- That’s a lot of boxes.
- Requires use of yet another undisclosed exploit to deploy remotely
- And if your sysadmin is doing his job, would last as long as it took them to run iptables -F <CIA-chain>; iptables -X <CIA-chain>
- It’s been so long since there was any I think even Intel forgot what competition even is.
- It also does not include consoles or any computer systems running operating systems other than Windows.
- This really boils down to a bunch of Windows users benching their new Ryzen chips.
- A bunch of thinkpads, an Opteron 6276 motherboard, and more USB wifi and bluetooth adapters both internal and external.
- Do you want to build a botnet?
- If you watch that Saturday show what we do, you’ll know that RPCS3 is a PS3 emulator which not only makes with the Linux, but supports Vulkan as well.
- Over the past few weeks they had mentioned they would like to bring RPCS3 to Qt and ditch the old WxWidgets based UI.
Slice of Pi
- SSH record.
- Make a script and map it to a button.
- Basically stay away from the Samsung 850 Pro and 840 Evo.
- Price per gig isn’t as good right now as it used to be but this 250GB 750 Evo I have on this laptop cost me €60 at the time, that’s €0.24/GB.
- I was discussing SSDs with Martin Wimpress awhile back and he says the current Toshiba/OCZ ones are pretty good. I would just add to stay away from the Trion series, they’ve been reportedly flaky.
- I didn’t have to talk with anyone because it’s 2017 so buy whatever.
- Seriously, SSD drives are now a commodity and no matter what you end up with it will annihilate a spinning drive.
