    Consoles force the major engines to carry a lot of abstractions, but a lot of games and engines started on a single platform.
    Stack-wise I get the impression consoles have been ghettos with a high...

    Devs on Twitter are promising official support for Linux in the future, both as a target and as a development platform.

    You'll find lots of good info on the FAQ (which addresses some of the "unanswered" questions in the Phoronix article).

    You're right, DEFAULT_MKFS_LEAF_SIZE is finally 16k.

    And I agree, nodesize and skinny-metadata are the tunables I acually care about, everything else has sensible defaults or is a no-brainer...

    NVIDIA could start reimplementing basic facilities with flintstones, or they could start using what the kernel provides.
    This is the reason they need a KMS driver, and it explains why their driver...

    KMS is also needed for a clean, graphical, flicker-free boot. NVIDIA still has large smudgy VESA characters.

    This feels like Unladen Swallow, another project that had high hopes and a team of Googlers working on it, to be given up in disgust. It was meant to speed up the Python interpreter (CPython) with an...

    This pull request has sysfs additions and doesn't come with the mandatory Documentation/ABI entries?
    Or user-friendly documentation for that matter?
    For shame.

    I made the mistake of buying an NVidia card recently, and I've already put it up for resale (bought second-hand in light of NVidia's inexistent open-source efforts).
    It turns out that stability,...

    I was thinking first person; actually the Psychonauts world is more inspired by Calvin & Hobbes than anything else. Your idea sounds like a theme park simulator for monsters.

    That might explain NIH and reinventing kernel interfaces, but doesn't work for high-level features like this one.
  16. This might be the only reason to keep their...

    This might be the only reason to keep their driver proprietary when they give it for free: they want to cripple the performance or functionality of their cheaper models.

    You failed to read the short technical explanation, so here's a tl;dr. dm-writeboost doesn't change a thing for databases.

    Disks use SCSI commands like FUA and FLUSH for barriers (ordering) and durability. Looking at the dm-writeboost pdf, it implements these commands by waiting for the SSD to return from a similar...

    It's not something I would personally use, but I would have said the same for an LZ4 initramfs, and squashfs is used in the same circumstances. Apparently LZ4 is good for embedded hardware. That...
