It seems the ongoing saga of getting the futex2 work into the Linux Kernel, which is supposed to help Linux gaming and Steam Play Proton, has another attempt up.
Currently limited to Zen 3, AMD has revealed their work on a brand new CPU frequency control mechanism "amd-pstate".
Time to put down that cake and try out a new Linux Kernel as Linux 5.14 has been officially released.
It was on this day 30 years ago that a younger Linus Torvalds announced a free operating system to the comp.os.minix group and from there it exploded across servers, desktops and now plenty more.
After attempting for some time now to get their futex2 work into the Linux Kernel, Collabora have cut it all down to focus on one part that has seen thorough testing to help Windows games on Linux with Steam Play Proton.
With the X.Org Developers Conference 2021 coming up, they've now announced that the initial program schedule is up and there's a fun sounding talk from AMD developer Ray Huang on working with Valve on new performance scaling design for AMD CPUs.
Another Linux Kernel release is out now with Linux 5.13 bringing with it, amongst plenty of other things, initial and early support for the new Apple M1 chip.
Here we go again, open source consulting firm Collabora have sent in the futex2 patches to the Linux Kernel for a fourth time now even more work has been done with the aim to help Wine and Steam Play Proton.
Collabora developers have been working for some time on back-end Linux Kernel improvements to help Linux gaming, and Wine / Steam Play Proton - the latest patches have now been posted for futex2.
Here is your daily dose of WTF. Linux Kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman has called out "researchers" from the University of Minnesota and banned them from submitting code to the Linux Kernel.
Linux is pretty secure right? Well, like everything else, there are and have been problems. Google is aware of this and they use Linux for a lot and now they're providing funding to help boost Linux security.
There's so much going on when it comes to Linux gaming it can be hard to keep up with it all, especially with many different companies getting involved. Collabora is one that has contracts with Valve and they have a refresher up on some of the work they're doing.
ARM virtualization company Corellium has managed to get Ubuntu Linux running on the next-generation Apple M1.
Wine developer Zebediah Figura has sent in a proposal to work on a new Linux Kernel interface for Wine synchronization primitives, one that gets closer to performance and behaviour of Windows NT.
Asahi Linux is the name of a new project aiming to get Linux properly supported and working on Apple Silicon, the new ARM based chips designed by Apple like the Apple M1 found in their latest hardware.
2020 was a really weird year with lots of surprises. Some good, plenty bad and Linux seeing a fresh port to the Nintendo 64 was also a thing that happened.
Roderick Colenbrander of Sony Interactive Entertainment has sent in a brand new and official Linux driver for the PS5 DualSense for even better out of the box support.
A brand new Long Term Support release is out now with the Linux Kernel 5.10, the very beating heart of the whole Linux system which brings plenty of new features and hardware support.
Collabora have sent in a fresh patch for discussion to the Linux Kernel list to help Linux gaming, acting as a follow-up to their previous attempt.
The highly anticipated update to the Linux Kernel has officially arrived, and the hard working kernel developers have been busy.
