  • CodeWeavers Releases CrossOver 21 - Rebased On Wine 6.0 - Phoronix

    With CrossOver 21.0 the software has been re-based against Wine 6.0 that in turn provides "thousands of improvements", including the initial Vulkan back-end work around WineD3D. CrossOver 21.0 also delivers on Xbox and PlayStation controller improvements under macOS, dark mode support on macOS, and various Microsoft Office 2016 and Office 365 fixes for running on Linux. CrossOver 21.0 also provides faster start-up times under Linux and Chrome OS.

CrossOver 21: MS Office for Linux runs better, macOS Monterey...

  • CrossOver 21: MS Office for Linux runs better, macOS Monterey doesn’t yet [Ed: Automated translation]

    Wine 6.0 was released in January 2021. Among other things, the update included a Vulkan backend for WineD3D, expanded the implementation of the console and integrated the Media Foundation framework. The developers also continued their work on converting the libraries to the Windows binary format Portable Executable (PE).

    The Vulkan backend for WineD3D is aimed in particular at games and is now used by default for 64-bit applications with Direct3D 10 or 11 under macOS, provided DXVK is not activated. The latter is a translation layer between Direct3D and Vulkan. DXVK is now included in version 1.7.

    CrossOver is now included with Wine Mono, a free and cross-platform implementation of the .NET framework. As of macOS Big Sur 11.3, Xbox X / S and PlayStation 5 controllers also work with CrossOver 21.0.0 via Bluetooth. However, the package cannot be used with Monterey at all. The developers want to submit support later by the end of the year.

  • 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.
