  • AMD Sends Out Linux Support Patches For "Yellow Carp" GPU - Phoronix

    AMD Radeon open-source Linux graphics driver developers have sent out their initial support for the yet-to-be-released "Yellow Carp" RDNA graphics card.

    Yellow Carp is a new GFX10/RDNA2 GPU that is yet to be released by AMD. The enablement comes in at another 215k lines of new AMDGPU kernel driver code but as usual the vast majority of that new code is auto-generated header files.

  • DXVK-NVAPI 0.3 Released For Being Able To Expose More Of NVIDIA's Public API Within Steam Play - Phoronix

    A new release is now available of DXVK-NVAPI, the currently separate portion from DXVK that provides an experimental implementation of NVIDIA's NVAPI for Direct3D 11 games using this public NVIDIA driver API.

    NVAPI is NVIDIA's API for offering publicly accessible SDK interfaces around NVIDIA GPU topology, driver management, frame rendering control, GPU overclocking, and a variety of other interfaces not available under other industry standard APIs or for other NVIDIA-specific feature controls. Some Direct3D games make use of NVAPI for NVIDIA features and thus DXVK-NVAPI is about supporting the API with DXVK to properly handle those games and features running within Valve's Steam Play.

  • Mesa 21.1.2 Released - RadeonSI Now Disables DFSM For Vega To Fix Performance Drop - Phoronix

    Mesa 21.1.2 is out today as the latest bi-weekly point release for the latest stable Mesa 3D series.

    As usual, the new Mesa point release is made up primarily of open-source Intel and AMD Radeon graphics driver fixes but also random other fixes collected over the past two weeks.

  • AMD Queues More Beige Goby Bring-Up, 16bpc Format For Vulkan, Smart Shift For Linux 5.14 - Phoronix

    AMD has submitted their latest batch of feature work on the AMDGPU kernel graphics driver to DRM-Next of new material queuing for the upcoming Linux 5.14 cycle.

    Already for Linux 5.14 they previously queued GPU hot unplug support, Beige Goby GPU support, HMM SVM and other feature work.

    With this week's updates there are more Beige Goby bring-up updates, clean-ups to eliminate code/compiler warnings, fixes for the Aldebaran accelerator work, a rework to ACPI ATCS/ATIF handling, SR-IOV and RAS fixes, a new information query for additional video BIOS information, and other fixes.

  • NVIDIA 460.84 Linux Driver Released With GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Support - Phoronix

    NVIDIA has now published the 460.84 Linux driver as the latest in their long-lived 460 driver series.

    The only listed change with the NVIDIA 460.84 driver release today is support for the newly released GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. See our GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Linux review for benchmarks of this new Ampere graphics card.

AMD's Yellow Carp GPUs Swim Into Linux Drivers

  • AMD's Yellow Carp GPUs Swim Into Linux Drivers

    AMD has begun to enable driver support for what could possibly be its new GPU based on the RDNA-series architecture and equipped with the company's next-generation DCN 3.1 display controller. At present, it is unclear whether the new "Yellow Carp" GPUs are high-end, midrange, or low-end graphics solutions, but we have some ideas.

    AMD's post about its Yellow Carp graphics processor (first noticed by Phoronix) says that the graphics processor is actually an ASIC (i.e., a standalone GPU). Meanwhile, Another AMD entry in a Linux repository indicates that Yellow Carp is actually a family of GPUs that includes Yellow Carp and Green Sardine, which is an integrated GPU set to be used for upcoming accelerated processing units (APUs).

    The current speculation around the watercooler is that Yellow Carp will come to market in the Rembrandt APUs. The key features of both Yellow Carp and Green Sardine GPUs (which continue AMD's 'fishy traditions') are said to be an RDNA-series graphics architecture as well as AMD's next-generation display core next 3.1 (DCN 3.1) engine. AMD's RDNA2-based standalone Radeon RX 6000-series features the DCN 3.0 engine, yet the difference between version 3.0 and 3.1 is unknown.

Samsung, Red Hat to Work on Linux Drivers for Future Tech

The metaverse is expected to uproot system design as we know it, and Samsung is one of many hardware vendors re-imagining data center infrastructure in preparation for a parallel 3D world. Samsung is working on new memory technologies that provide faster bandwidth inside hardware for data to travel between CPUs, storage and other computing resources. The company also announced it was partnering with Red Hat to ensure these technologies have Linux compatibility. Read more

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
