By - | Views: 24,266

ChimeraOS Linux 45-1 is out now as a minor update to the current release, but it still comes with a healthy dose of handheld gaming improvements for people who don't want Windows. 

While Valve still haven't released SteamOS 3 for download to other devices, the Linux community continues to show off how great open source is. ChimeraOS is an operating system that provides an out of the box couch gaming experience. Once installed, it will boot right into Steam Big Picture for a good handheld interface, and it comes with many additions for various handhelds.

From the official changelog the update notes are below.

Main Changes:

  • Added a configuration tweak to improve Steam download speeds.
  • Added BMI260 DKMS driver.
  • Replaced ayaled with ayaneo-platform DKMS driver. RGD LED's will be off by default at boot.
  • Updated ayn-platform driver. RGD LED's will be off by default at boot. The mode switch character file has moved up a directory into /sys/class/led/multicolor:chassis/.
  • Added acpi_call dkms package.
  • Added AYANEO NEXT Lite, AYANEO AIR 1S Ultra, and AYANEO AIR Plus 7320u support to HandyGCCS.
  • Enabled samba access in the file browser.
  • Added localization support to OpenGamepadUI. Currently French and Spanish translations are available.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug when using steam-plus session where input devices were being duplicated in steam.
  • Improved performance on lower end devices such as the Loki Zero when using the steam-plus and OpenGamepadUI sessions.
  • Fixed an issue with some AOKZOE A1 Pro's not fully detecting all input devices in HandyGCCS or OpenGamepadUI.
  • Fixed an error in the Chimera web UI when editing a game with non-ascii characters in its name.
  • Fixed graphical glitches in Wii games.
  • Fixed a bug where some newer ROG Ally devices were not being detected for device quirks due to a change in DMI strings.
  • Fixed an issue with the suspend-mods script that prevented mt7921e WiFi modules from sleeping/waking correctly during suspend.
  • Fixed device address for convolver script for the Legion Go. Improved audio soundstage should now be working properly.
  • Fixed an issue with the HandyGCCS on the ROG Ally starting before the controller fully initialized in some cases.
