AMD Zen 2 Performance Looking Even Better With GCC 10

Phoronix - 2. Srpen 2019 - 15:26
While this year's GCC 9 compiler release brought initial support for AMD Zen 2 processors with the Znver2 target, the support was sadly incomplete. While the GCC 9 support added some of the new instructions, it wasn't complete (such as RDPRU support remains missing) and the cost tables and scheduler model were not updated from Znver1 to account for the microarchitectural changes. Thankfully, SUSE's compiler experts recently fixed up this support for the GCC 10 compiler and more recently were able to get it back-ported for the upcoming GCC 9.2 for the Linux distributions that will upgrade to that point release. Here are some benchmarks looking at the performance impact of that updated AMD Zen 2 compiler code.

Trápení se souborovým systémem exFAT – chýlí se ke konci? - 1. Srpen 2019 - 23:00
[4 minuty čtení] V posledních týdnech opět vyvstala diskuse, co by bylo potřeba udělat, aby bylo možné začlenit podporu exFAT přímo do Linuxu. Je tu s námi už 13 let, z toho 10 let jako součást paměťových karet SDXC. Nadále platí, že sice je technicky možné začlenit podporu exFAT přímo do linuxového jádra, ale nikdy se tak nestalo. Důvody jsou stále stejné a tkví v původu tohoto souborového systému, který pochází z Microsoftu. A ač Microsoft od roku 2006 velmi změnil svoji firemní strategii vůči open-source projektům, začlenění exFAT stále není možné.

Intel's Linux Graphics Driver Begins Preparing For Multi-GPU Support

Phoronix - 1. Srpen 2019 - 12:29
Up until now the Intel Linux graphics driver hasn't had to worry about supporting multiple devices concurrently since, well, it hasn't been a possibility.
