ChimeraOS Linux for handhelds and couch gaming v43-1 released

By - | Views: 15,017

After their huge version 43 release recently bringing with it initial ASUS ROG Ally support, ChimeraOS Linux has a first bug fix release out. This is the Linux distribution aimed primarily at gaming devices, giving you a SteamOS-like environment with a bunch of extra tweaks along with wider hardware support.

ChimeraOS 43-1 is now available, as their first proper bug-fix version using their new release process allowing them to easily rebuild older releases with smaller updates.

What's in it:

Main Components

  • linux-chimeraos 6.3.9-chos2
  • OpenGamepadUI 0.19.2
  • Mesa version: 23.1.3

Fixes and improvements

  • Fixed a bug with flatpaks not starting in GamepadUI due to some Nvidia Vulkan shenannigans that affected non-Nvidia users.
  • Fix the Return to GameMode shortcut on Desktop mode to return to the correct session that was used before switching.
  • removed ryzenadj-controller (not ryzenadj itself) due to some incompatibilities with python's asyncio.

See more on the official site.

If you've been using ChimeraOS, be sure to pop along to the comments to tell us what you're using it on and how the experience has been for you.
