Posted by , | Views: 6,247
Hey guys, sorry about the non-weekly nature of these posts. It just so happens that no new updates were released nor did I have anything to say. Until now...


Today Pierre-Loup announced that update 120 has been released. Most notably this release includes:

I'm excited about this update as it contains the AMD-specific fixes for the Witcher 2. If you have any praise/excitement over this update please feel free to let me know in the comments below.

Coolio, I was just refitting my machine for a triple boot (Win 7, Ubuntu 14.04 and SteamOS). Now to reinstall SteamOS and see if that works out well or not (it definitely works in dual boot). Glad they finally included the new AMD drivers, I hope it works out alright for me. I fear the day my 5750 is dropped from official Linux support is soon...

EDIT: Triple booting works!

Last time I tested SteamOS, it was ... At the very first release.
Quickly, I've uninstalled it because of conflict at boot with W8.1.
I didn't installed it since that last time because I couldn't get the sources.list to be editable.

Does anyone can tell me if it's now possible to add sources ?

What conflict at boot? I just have to select which drive I want to boot off of.


Yes you can add sources as long as you set up the sudo password, etc.

Ok, thanks for the answer.

What boot conflict ... Windows, for some reason, wasn't ok to boot after the installation of SteamOS, on a different drive.Not gonna be exhaustive, but W8.1 is kind of virus. That's what I felt ...
