    Phoronix: Linux 6.1-rc1 Released With Rust Now In The Kernel, MGLRU Added, New Hardware Support

    Linus Torvalds just issued the first release candidate of Linux 6.1 and in turn marking the end of the merge window for this feature-packaged kernel release. Linux 6.1 stable in turn should be out in December and will likely serve as this year's Linux LTS kernel release...

    phoronix Michael, could you benchmark intel arc with rebar disabled? Some people are saying that configuration will eventually perform better on linux than on windows

    If tagged him incorrectly, let me know

      Typo: Broken end of link: "... printing the CPU cores where seg faults occur, a feature that would have caught all the memcpy-based buffer overflows/a> of recent years, and much more."

          Why would you think he had brand loyalty to a brand that just now exists? Also, there are some seriously good use cases for this card, if you aren't using it for gaming. Myself, I like reading about tech even if I will never use it. Why can't it just be that?

            You do know that we are talking about Intel?

            Arc is just a line of products from them.

            But seems like I touched a loyalty nerveā€¦

              This is not the place for this discussion. But I would point out that the Arc line of GPUs are terrible, but cheap. And they are the only current cards for a decent price that have working AV1 encode ability. That does count for something.

                GunpowderGuy Perhaps this will help?

                  Rewriting kernel algorithms from C to Rust will bring performance improvements, not because Rust code runs faster than C, but because a rewrite from language X to language Y offers an opportunity to rethink the algorithm. In my opinion, major rewrites are unlikely to happen before kernel version ~6.10 though (~2 years from today).

                    I am telling you your algorithm for detecting BS is off. I also want more competition in the marketplace. Frankly, I would prefer 20+ designs on the market, because it would be good for consumers. And more than anything, I enjoy tech, and have since the 80's. I don't have brand loyalty, I have tech loyalty, and welcome good ideas, features and designs.

                    You didn't hit a nerve with me, you hit one with yourself, so that you are deceiving yourself in your understanding of motives.

                    Now, back to the discussion. It is a shame that the LTS release is the first one with Rust this year. That seems like it was badly planned. I would have preferred it being the next cycle, so that Rust had more real world usage under its belt.

                    I am definitively looking forward to MGLRU, which has been in production with Google for quite some time
