Wind River has expanded the hardware support in its embedded Linux for the latest ARM, Intel, MIPS, and Power architectures as well as updating the kernel, toolchain, and user space for the latest Yocto Project release.
Vendetta Online is a 3D space combat MMORPG for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. This MMO permits thousands of players to interact as the pilots of spaceships in a vast universe. Users may build their characters in any direction they desire, becoming rich captains of industry, military heroes, or outlaws. A fast-paced, realtime "twitch" style combat model gives intense action, coupled with the backdrop of RPG gameplay in a massive online galaxy.
I still remember buying my first 64-bit processor -- the AMD Athlon 64 3200+. I bought it a decade ago for a system built in 2003. At the time, home computers were still mostly using 32-bit processors and running 32-bit software. However, one of my favorite Linux distributions, Ubuntu, has been offering 64-bit versions since 2004 with the Warty Warthog release.
Canonical is now offering the 32-bit of its Ubuntu operating system, either the LTS or the regular one, as default, but this might change soon.
Utorrent has released a 64 bit build for Linux platforms (see details here). The release is built on Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). The problem is that if you try to run it on a distribution like RHEL/CentOS or any older distribution with old libraries, it will fail because of the newer dependencies like glibc 2.14 and libssl 1.0.0 etc.
While 64-bit Linux desktop support has been in good shape for years, it seems there's a surprising number of Intel/AMD Linux desktop users undecided whether to use the 32-bit or 64-bit installation images of their favorite Linux distribution. For the latest perspective on 32-bit versus 64-bit Linux performance, here are said benchmarks from the latest Ubuntu 13.10 development state.
Valve has launched a new stable version for its Steam for Linux client, bringing a lot of interesting new features.
The purpose of this video is to demonstrate a basic installation of Kali Linux from Offensive Security in a new Virtual Machine guest created in VMware Workstation 7x. Installation of this Linux distribution was performed using the Kali Linux installation disc ISO available for download from http://www.kali.org.
Today, I had to install the Java plugin for 64bit Firefox on CentOS 6.4. The procedure wasn’t too bad, but it wasn’t exactly straight-forward either. So, I’m recording what worked for when I have to do it again. Hopefully, you might find it useful too. This is not a descriptive tutorial; it’s just quick notes, so you may have to do a little reading between the lines.
In this tute we'll get to coding some little ASM algorithms. First we have to look at how parameters will be passed from C++.
Today we'll look at integer data types, bits, bytes, words and all that. We'll also look at the general purpose register set. I didn't really mention it in the tute but the suffixes for AT&T that match the register sizes are (using RAX as the example register):
Hello, everyone! I’m writing from my hotel room here in Bellingham Washington where I’ve been attending the Linux Fest NorthWest all day, and managed to get 4.0 released on schedule! It’s only for 64-bit systems at the moment, mainly because that’s the only ISO I have here on this PC, but I’ll be finishing up Descent|OS for 32-bit systems and for powerpc and releasing them next week.
