Clear Linux* OS announces Kata Containers to be set as default runtime
As previously announced, Kata Containers is available in any Clear Linux* OS version above 23380, and Clear Containers is scheduled to be deprecated.
As part of the Clear Containers deprecation, the default containers runtime will be set to be Kata Containers on August 21.
What should you do if you are already using Kata Containers?
No further action is required from you, since you already have the latest configuration in place.
What should you do if you are using Clear Containers?
Use the Migrate Clear Containers to Kata Containers*<https://clearlinux.org/documentation/clear-linux/tutorials/kata_migration> tutorial to migrate to Kata Containers if you want to migrate immediately. From August 21, after the next Clear Linux OS update performed on your system (either manual or automated), Kata Containers runtime will be the default.
Although further Clear Containers usage is not recommended, you will temporarily be able to do so by manually re-configuring your system to point to cc-runtime as default runtime until it is removed on August 21th.
For any issues or questions regarding Kata Containers in Clear Linux, please contact us through the mailing list: https://lists.clearlinux.org/mailman/listinfo/dev or the IRC channel: https://clearlinux.org/community/irc-channel.

I’m trying to play some movies on Clear Linux and VLC or gstreamer but they failed because of MPEG-4 decoder missing. Is there any way or bundle that helps to install the media codecs?
Firefox was working well for me on ClearLinux v24010. Today when I updated it to v24180, running Firefox would say missing i915_dri.so under /usr/lib64/dri, and it seemed to switch to software rendering mode. The aquarium sample on webglsamples.org was rendered as 9fps at default conditions. It was 60fps. I’m not sure if i915_dri.so was there before. Is there any recent change in libX11client that may cause it?
