As usual, I pre-announce systemd updates to make sure people are aware
that a new release is about to land. The upcoming v244 update is very
uninvolved and should be without issues for users.
We did our usual testing and didn't see any issues, however, so I expect
none for users either.
If you didn't know this: systemd upgrades do _not_ require you to reboot.
I had just been browsing the web trying to get a hold of LLVM, primarily
because I was led to believe that the Clang/LLVM tool-chest is a lot
more interesting than that of GCC.
Read a some details on the Phoronix and LLVM websites which claim the
superiority of Clang/LLVM over GCC.
Does anyone out here have first hand experience and knowledge of such
If yes, would Intel consider migrating to Clang/LLVM from GCC for Clear
The tooling from Clang/LLVM for C++ development is really interesting.
Don't know who or where else to ask, so out here.
Considering the fact that Intel has it's own high-quality compiler suite
in-spite of contributing to GCC, does Intel have it's own Assembler for
x64? If not, would Intel's work on GNU "as" be the only way to stay
up-to-date on the best support for working with modern instructions via

My manager has authorised our infrastructure team to begin evaluating
the server edition.
Have a few questions regarding the long-term goals for Clear Linux OS,
specifically the server edition;
Is Intel serious about Clear Linux OS? Or, is this more of a technology
show-case kind of thing?
Is Intel considering providing commercial technical support for Clear
Linux OS in the future? Like RedHat!
Is Intel considering partnering with hardware manufacturers to provide
integrated high-performant, high-reliability solutions?
Is Intel considering technology certifications for system administrators
like RedHat does?
The above questions are derived from the issues raised and the
discussion carried out after my presentation.
Hello Clear Linux Devs,
Before going further I must tell you that I'm an Intel System Engineer working as a Linux troubleshooter for current and future server products.
I'm finding that with AST2500 Video/BMC equipped systems that installing Clear Linux version ID 31800 must be installed with a nomoeset kernel argument, otherwise nothing displays. After rebooting into the newly installed OS, still no GUI displayed, using Control-ALT-F2 will get me a Terminal.
This Video/BMC chip is used fairly extensively, so I don't doubt that this is a known issue.
Can you point me, please, to any workarounds, fixes and or expectation of fixes?
Thanks so much.
Should it turn out that this isn't know, I'll gladly file a complete bug.
