FreeDOS 1.2 RC2

tuxmachines.org - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 09:00
  • FreeDOS 1.2 Release Candidate 2

    We started FreeDOS in 1994 to create a free and open source version of DOS that anyone could use. We've been slow to make new releases, but DOS isn't exactly a moving target anymore. New versions of FreeDOS are mostly about updating the software and making FreeDOS more modern. We made our first Alpha release in 1994, and our first Beta in 1998. In 2006, we finally released FreeDOS 1.0, and updated to FreeDOS 1.1 in 2012. And all these years later, it's exciting to see so many people using FreeDOS in 2016.

  • FreeDOS 1.2 RC2 Arrives, Still Evolving After 22 Years

    The second release candidate of FreeDOS 1.2 is now available, approximately one month after FreeDOS 1.2-RC1 and twenty-two years after the FreeDOS open-source project began.

Love the Amazon Echo? Meet these 3 open source projects

tuxmachines.org - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 08:44

But where does open source fit into the picture? Is voice-controlled, connected future destined to be forever dominated by a few proprietary choices of custom-built hardware/software combinations that are essentially black boxes to their users? We hope not!

In fact, there are a few open source tools for voice control out there already, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the field grows as the technology becomes more pervasive. Looking for a weekend project? Check out a few of these options.

lags and freezes on ATI RS880 [Radeon HD 4290] with new xf86-video-ati 7.8.0

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 08:25
Hi,

Since the last Xorg update, I've been experiencing lags and fatal freezes in several apps (ie : MPV, Chromium).

After some troubleshooting, it happens that the problem comes from the move from xf86-video-ati 7.7.0 to xf86-video-ati 7.8.0 on cards like [AMD/ATI] RS880 [Radeon HD 4290].

If you encounter a similar issue, the following config may be needed to fix it :

Code: Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Radeon"
        Driver "radeon"
        #Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
        Option "AccelMethod" "exa"
        Option "DRI" "3"
        #Option "TearFree" "on"
        Option "ColorTiling" "on"
        Option "ColorTiling2D" "on"
EndSection Hope it will be helpful to some ;)

Cheers
JP
