Nvidia 352.30 Stable Driver for Linux Has Lots of Fixes
(Wednesday, July 29, 2015 5:00:41 PM IST)
Nvidia maintains a number of branches for the drivers, and it's getting harder and harder to keep track of them. There is the short-lived branch that gets most of the action, the long-lived branch that usually lands in repositories, and the stable branch, which sits somewhere in the middle.

You might think that it's enough, but that's not the case. Nvidia also has a Beta branch, which is used to test all the new features and various changes, and there are three other different legacy branches. And, to make things even more difficult, sometimes Nvidia releases a new driver that doesn't fit in any of the above categories. It's almost like Nvidia is on the exact opposite side of AMD. One releases too many drivers and the other not enough.

What's new in the Nvidia 352.30 driver

According to the changelog, support has been added for the GeForce 910M GPU, a bug that caused poor video post-processing performance in VDPAU when operating on a large number of video streams simultaneously has been fixed, a bug that could cause an Xid error when terminating a video playback application has been corrected, the nvidia-installer has been upgraded in order to avoid recursing too deeply into kernel source trees under /usr/lib/modules, and a rare deadlock condition that occurred when running applications using OpenGL in multiple threads on a Quadro GPU has been fixed.

You can download Nvidia 352.30 Linux Stable driver from Softpedia for Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD. Please keep in mind that if you manually install the Nvidia driver, you might have to do it all again when the Linux kernel gets updated, provided that you will even be able to start the system.

Move over, Ubuntu Touch and Android. There's new competition in town. The KDE community just unveiled Plasma Mobile, a free and open-source mobile operating system.

This is nothing new for the KDE project. Before Ubuntu Touch was ever announced, the KDE community had a long-term vision of convergence. Plasma 5 on the desktop has a “converged shell” that can switch between different interfaces for different device types. KDE even attempted to release tablets with their Plasma software preinstalled, but this never worked out.

Malware on Linux - When Penguins Attack
(Wednesday, July 29, 2015 2:30:42 PM IST)

It didn’t just share some software code with the world. It agreed to let an independent party oversee the development of the code.
