  • Unvanquished 0.52.1 Brings Rendering Fixes, Flatpak For This Promising Open-Source Game - Phoronix

    Following last month's Unvanquished 0.52 beta for this open-source game that has long been in development, Sunday marked the release of Unvanquished 0.52.1.

    Over last month's big 0.52 release, v0.52.1 primarily is about shipping some prominent bug fixes for this game built atop their Daemon engine, which amounts to a distant fork of the ioquake3 code-base. Unvanquished has been one of the most promising fully open-source games over the past decade but only recently did they return to their frequent practice of delivering new versioned releases.

  • Rolled Out! is a wonderful spiritual successor to Super Monkey Ball | GamingOnLinux

    While Rolled Out! from Polarbyte Games / Skymap Games is currently in Early Access so it's not finished, it clearly has an excellent setup ready for you to get rolling. Note: key provided by the developer.

    Super Monkey Ball is a series that has a lot of passionate fans and with a new one releasing across various platforms later this year, they've got their work cut out for them if they want to cut through the noise. Rolled Out! is here right now though and I had been meaning to actually try it for a while since the EA release back in March. It already feels fantastic including the level design, the overall visual style and the controls all fit together nice and snug. It sure does bring back some nice memories.

    What's surprising is the amount of content Rolled Out! launched with. They said it would be a good year or so before it was ready to leave Early Access but even so it already has over 150 levels to bounce around in so you're not going to get bored in a hurry across multiple difficulty levels. Custom level support is in too, along with the developer providing a plugin for Blender to help people make more - although as of yet there's no in-game browser for downloading levels.

  • Classic open source RTS Warzone 2100 has a Beta out for the upcoming 4.1 release | GamingOnLinux

    After the huge 4.0 release back in April that added in the Vulkan renderer, a new update for Warzone 2100 is in need of testing as they clean up a backlog of bug fixes. Info: Warzone 2100 was originally developed by Pumpkin Studios and published by Eidos Interactive and was release in 1999, much later it was open sourced in 2004 and the legacy of it continues on as a completely free game. To this day it's still one of the most innovative RTS games around.

  • Pawn of the Dead is a fun Zombie twist on Chess in the style of Battle Chess | GamingOnLinux

    Love Chess but want something a little different? Pawn of the Dead seems like it could be exactly what you want.

    Designed more in the style of another classic, Battle Chess, the idea in Pawn of the Dead is that it's a zombie apocalypse in Chess form. Each time you lose a piece to the zombies, it turn into another zombie you then need to take down. There's a tutorial, a full campaign mode and when you're done with that there's also a random level generator to keep things interesting but there's always a way to win of course - it all depends on your tactics.

  • 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.
