Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Hope y’all Firefox users like snaps
- Gnome 42 and a horizontally oriented workspace workflow
- Wayland by default.
- I think it’s Wayland by default unless Nvidia?
- On the long-term stable 5.15 kernel.
- Man, missing out on the kernel 5.16 goodness.
- I understand why, because not long term.
- For the fashion-conscious, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS offers ten different accent colours, applied to both the dark and light variants of the Yaru theme.
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS adds Rust for memory-safe systems-level programming.
- It also moves to OpenSSL v3.
- Users of Ubuntu WSL can upgrade to 22.04 LTS directly.
- Optimised Ubuntu 22.04 LTS images for AWS Graviton.
- Shuttleworth noted he now expects it to go public next year.
- Canonical is not in a situation where it has to raise outside money and that going public for him is not about fundraising.
- Say what you will about the company but they have been taking their time doing this and trying to do it correctly.
- Company culture changes when you go full-business.
- Ubuntu 25.04 “Stockmarket Stork”
- Shuttleworth said there isn’t enough talent on the market for the company to hire.
- If they’re so concerned about talent recruitment and retention, perhaps they should revisit their byzantine interview process.
- Still perplexed about moving the Fox to Snap.
- I download the *.tar and run it on Debian.
- However, there is still a PPA maintained by the Mozilla Team.
- *Gru evil plan meme*
- There is still a PPA maintained by the Mozilla Team?
- Makes sense for users who want the latest without necessarily waiting for ubuntu or debian to catch up
- Lots of legacy devices were nuked due to AOSP’s removal of iptables in favor of eBPF.
- Only devices with Linux kernel 4.9 or newer have the needed capabilities to make use of eBPF.
- Backporting that is going to be a mother.
- Settings > About phone > tap on Android version.
- 4.14 on the S6 \:D/
- Do people still plop Lineage on their Android devices?
- I started tinkering with CyanogenMod back when Googs nuked support for the Nex10 after 7 minutes.
- Somewhere between then and now I developed a habit of only buying devices I could install CyanogenMod or Lineage on.

Slice of Pi
- Don’t try it with a non pi4. Heatsink is in the wrong place otherwise.
- I’m still amazed coolermaster crowdfunded it
- Fancy new GPIO protector door
- STL files are always nice. Good on you coolermaster
- Like my Argon ONE case this does the “suck all the heat to the lid” trick.
- Unlike the Argon ONE, Cooler Master added fins to dissipate the heat.
- The Pi Tool GUI management bit is nice and it’s open-source.
- It works, technically… kinda.
- X does not realy give it to ya.
- I want to see what can be done with the new Blackmagic ARM drivers.
- Apparently PCIe on consumer grade ARM isn’t so great a love story
- A busted up pci root complex means that certain memory operations are gonna eat poo
- A hacked together r600 driver sorta works
