LibreELEC Jarvis v7. 0.3 MR is only a minor maintenance version , but also the last LibreELEC version of series 7.x. There will be another update for the Add-ons, but the basic system will not be updated. The developers focus already on LibreELEC 8.x. I use LibreELEC 8 alpha ( with kodi 17 krypton quite a while on a raspberry a PI 3 and have no problems with it.

who wants to take the plunge into Alpha water of LibreEELC 7.0.3, the can the update channel in the settings LibreELEC 8.0 set. Because it is a development version, you have to expect bugs however. As I said, everything works for me quite well. Maybe you do but other stuff, where there’s still corners and edges.

steam’s Kuscheleien with Linux has great influence on Microsoft – game stuff in the truest sense of the word

rich money Empire was one of the first developers in terms of steam Linux. He writes on my blog, that he will never forget the contribution of faster zombies . Mr. steam, Gabe Newell, wrote large parts of this post even before my eyes. He was reportedly taken aback and annoyed at the same time that the team has not published this information. It was that OpenGL to D3D had the nose front.

the developers could have done at that time L4D2 Linux slightly faster than in Windows. However, there were other priorities. It more source-1 games should be made executable. Also, we wanted to support Intel with their open-source GL drivers.

Left 4 Dead 2: Schnellere Zombies unter Linux

left 4 dead 2: faster zombies under Linux

a few weeks after the information was published, there was a visit by senior Microsoft Developer secret . The post has fallen where, because thus the Microsoft leadership realized that it must continue to support D3D development. Therefore Linux was very influential, because it made some Microsoft bosses fire under the butt.

money Empire post confirms what many have always been suspected. Valve uses the Linux efforts as a sword of Damocles for Microsoft. Therefore may be expected probably in the future that valve has its own Linux expertise in a healthy condition. Now Cuddles too Microsoft with Linux . Why does no one know exactly… 🙂

Ubuntu phones put on hold

new smartphones with Ubuntu there will initially be none. The reason is , that everything on snaps to be converted. The old click format is explained according to dead . It is not yet clear how long the transition takes. An OTA-15 there will be no also. Security updates will still be delivered. Let’s see where this leads.

VPNSecure life

who looking for a VPN providHe is, who can see the provider VPNSecure from Australia. Currently, there are lifetime licenses for only $39 . I don’t know how long the offer is valid or whether there is only a certain quota.

Firefox Developer Edition for Flatpak

friends a well-maintained distribution independence likely to a version of Firefox for Flatpak happy . These are but only to the developer version. The Flatpak version is actually an unofficial version of the developer version. So more is no longer on the edge . At the moment, the software is located in any sandbox and has full access to the home directory of the user. In the future, the developers want to put the Flatpak version in a sandbox.

the developers have successfully tested the packages with Fedora 25, openSUSE Tumbleweed and Ubuntu 16.10. Allerdgings they speak also of corners, edges, and problems which are yet to eradicate it. You need at least Flatpak 0.6.13. Fedora 25 launches version 0.8.0 and openSUSE 0.6.14 with it. For Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10 and there are corresponding derivatives a PPA . In theory, the procedure looks like this:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa: alexlarsson/flatpak sudo apt update sudo apt install flatpak 

then you need more GNOME runtime. After you get Firefox DE for Flatpak and open the browser in the connection.

 flatpak add-remote from gnome flatpak install - from flatpak run org.mozilla.FirefoxDevEdition 

a update runs as:

 flatpak update org.mozilla.FirefoxDevEdition 

and the uninstall process works as follows:

 flatpak uninstall org.mozilla.FirefoxDevEdition 

who would like to again remove the GNOME components:

 flatpak uninstall org.gnome.Platform flatpak remote-delete gnome 

who all want to undo , can of course also Flatpak uninstall again.
