Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 24 April 2013 at 12:40 PM EDT. 13 Comments
Gears On Gallium continues to be maintained as an experimental live Linux distribution based upon openSUSE that's shipping the very latest open-source Linux graphics driver packages.

The latest release of Gears On Gallium happened earlier this week (2013.04.22) and is based upon openSUSE 12.3. This new release ships all of the latest Linux graphics code as of this week -- including Mesa 9.2 Git, Linux 3.9-rc6, libdrm 2.4.44, X.Org Server 1.14.1, xf86-video-ati 7.99.99, xf86-video-intel 2.99.99, xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.99, and LLVM 3.3 SVN.

Gears On Gallium uses the KDE 4.10 desktop and also ships with Wine 1.5.28 and version 4.4 of the Phoronix Test Suite. In fact, the independent Gears on Gallium continues to make great use of the Phoronix Test Suite for delivering numerous independent Linux GPU benchmarks. They're doing a nice job at using our open-source automated testing software.

For those wanting to grab the latest Gears On Gallium release or would like to see their PTS/OpenBenchmarking.org-powered benchmark results, visit GearsOnGallium.com.
