36:35 Linux drivers for the MOTU midi express
42:00 Twitter Tweak
50:20 Mini ITX for Raspberry Pi
- Why is this not on the Raspi?
- You know what could really use a wicked-light 3D accelerated desktop?
- Take a guess, I’ll wait.
- OpenGL over Zink+RADV on Haiku has been tested with Blender.
- It is so nice to see our favorite BeOS derivative getting vulkan love and 3D acceleration.
- It’s still software accelerated only.
- But it’s progress!
- And there’s been a lot of work to port the client/server radeon driver over to Haiku.
- With libDRM2 and the actual driver having to be written by hand.
- Haiku will be a very interesting OS to play with once you get full GPU acceleration on at least Intel and AMD.
Fedora Streaming Initiative (Mir)
- I’m going to assume this was a hastily thrown together skeleton.
- They intend to gather support from vendors and industry players to build momentum around this initiative.
- I would strongly suggest adding all devices and software with official Linux support.
- Magewell, AJA, Blackmagic, Nvidia, Digigram, Audioscience.
- All companies that provide official support for their A/V hardware.
- RME gets a mention since they provide the bits needed for developers to make drivers.
- Davinci Resolve is missing from the video editors.
- Using a Smartphone as a Webcam is straightforward with the NDI app.
- Bitfocus Companion for Streamdecks.
- There is no such thing as a High-end USB Microphone.
- The NVENC links to a post from 2016 talking about compiling ffmpeg with NDI.
- We made a script for that back in 2016 but it’s no longer needed.
- If ffmpeg /w nvenc is not available on your distro in 2021, change distros.
- Avoid Wayland & Pipewire, for now.
Fedora powered Amazon Linux
- Amazon has just made a big announcement that Amazon Linux will rebase from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) to Red Hat’s Fedora!
- Amazon Linux 2022 is now available via AWS control panel as AMIs.
- It will have two year standard support with quarterly minor updates.
- Followed by three years of maintenance support, which gets critical security updates as soon as they are available.
- And SELinux will be enabled by default.
- This is a great move, because it will put Red Hat’s bleeding-edge Fedora on even more cloud infrastructure, and thus even more updates and innovation.
- That’s a heck of a change from the behemoth that is AWS.
- Fedora land might be getting a bit more interesting.
- That should speed things up quite considerably in GNOME 41’s desktop with an Nvidia GPU.
- Making GNOME41 use the GBM renderer with the NVIDIA driver.
- Has some issues with Vulkan games but it seems to work.
- I do wonder, between GNOME and KDE, which one will the best experience with Wayland with all GPUs first.
- Considering KDE’s sordid history with NVidia, GNOME’s probably gonna win that one.
- CasaOS is a simple and easy-to-use, open source home cloud system which is based on the Docker cloud ecosystem.
- And because it uses Docker, it is easy to install NAS and home smart applications with just one click.
- There are apps for storing your camera recordings, controlling your lights, creating a cloud drive, or an entertainment center or VPN.
- CasaOS is fully compatible with Ubuntu, Debian, Raspberry Pi OS, and CentOS with an easy one-liner installation.
- CasaOS is still in early development, and the IceWhale team is looking for contributions from developers and testers in the Linux community.
- Cool, this looks similar to the open source Home Assistant that has been around since 2013.
- But Home Assistant uses a local server to store your data and CasaOS uses the cloud based Docker.
- May or may not run on RasPi and or OpenWRT.
- Casa =’s home.
- CasaOS originated as a pre-installed system for crowdfunded product ZimaBoard on Kickstarter.
- A cloud OS for your casa.
- Part of me likes the idea that you come home and you can access all your home stuff from one central machine on whatever device you have at hand.
MOTU MIDI USB
- USB MIDI has been a thing on Linux for some time.
- You might even remember my $5 MIDI cable from eBay.
- Sometimes you need more than one MIDI device but you don’t have eleventy USB ports.
- That’s where something like the MIDI express comes in.
- 8 In & 8 out with one USB cable.
- Only tested on linux 5.x, and with midi express 128, the 5 port version might work too.
- Looking for testers.
- I’ve been using this for the last week on chrome but it’s available for Firefox as well.
- For the few times you have to use non-Deck Desktop Twitter.
- It does a gang of things like nuking “Who to follow”, “What’s happening”, “More Tweets” and algorithmic tweets based on likes.
Slice of Pi
- I would love a desktop Pi box to play with.
- Yes, by play with I mean put a GPU in it and seeing what runs and what doesn’t
- $435 for just the motherboard, you must supply your own CM4.
- Jeff Geerling’s video apparently caused a bit of a shortage.
- Same here Pedro! I would <3 to have a Raspberry Pi Mini ITX build to play with!
