Software Freedom Law Centre is organizing a Round Table Discussion
tomorrow at Taj Lands End, Bandra West between 10.30 and 5.30pm. I
thought some of you may be interested in participating in this meeting.
If you are coming, please send me (off the list) your name. Sorry for
the late Invite.
Please find the agenda of the meeting attached.
The Supreme Court of India in the Puttaswamy judgement recommended the
need to examine and put into place a robust regime for data protection.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology had constituted a
Committee of Experts to deliberate on a data protection framework for
India, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Justice B.N. Srikrishna. On 27 July
2018, this expert committee submitted its Repor
along with a draft bill titled The Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018
to the Ministry of Information and Technology (MeitY). On 14 August, the
Ministry issued a call for comments
on the draft Bill to be submitted by 30 September 2018.
The data protection framework would have immense implications for the
privacy rights of citizens and for the open Internet. It is important to
deliberate whether the draft bill is in tune with the privacy rights of
citizens as laid down in the Puttaswamy judgment as well as the
expectations of various stakeholders. SFLC.in is organizing a
round-table discussions in 3 cities across Indiato facilitate exchangeof
ideas between various stakeholders so that organizations and individuals
can submit informed responses to the Government on the Bill, these are:

I needed some help with graphics drivers
I have a AMD graphics card (r9 280x)
I've been using the x86-video-ati driver but I also have the amdgpu driver installed.
I wanted vuklan support so I need to use the amdgpu driver.
How can I switch between what driver I'm using?
lspci -k shows in using the "radeon" driver (which is the ATI driver)
I've tried adding MODULES=(amdgpu) in my /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and running mkinitcpio -p linux but the kernel still uses the radeon driver.
Also I'm using arch and I've installed the xorg-drivers group.
I actually tried uninstalling the xf86-video-ati package but even after uninstalling that I was still stuck on the same driver. (I've tried rebooting)
Let's say I also install the amdgpu-pro proprietary driver. Is there a way I can switch between the various drivers and how do I check what driver I'm running?
Note: I'm checking vulkan support with vkmark and trying DXVK support in Lutris (with wine)
All the recent threats to digital netigens are arising due to ignoring
the visionary warnings RMS gave us several decades ago. Whether it is a
threat to privacy, or the dangers of cloud computing. The 'open source'
vision though may have spread the development of technology, it failed
miserably in adhering to the ethical and political dimensions of the
movement. I think it is relevant to discuss such issues and awaken the
community to why we still need to address the issues of software freedom.
RMS will be in India during early 2019. Would any of you be interested
in coordinating with me to check for a good venue and to find a host in
the first week of January. The date will be around 7th of Jan, + or -
