    There's a kernel 3.13 package for Manjaro, should make a big difference, specially in GPU benchmarks.

    Manjaro uses older packages than Arch, as it is supposed to be stability-focused. There are...

    It is possible to migrate a Windows installation to another computer, but usually it isn't or is troublesome (random crashes, slowdowns, etc.). I've tried several times, with WinXP, Vista and Win7....

    I totally agree. This is the reason I wen from Mandrake to (K)Ubuntu, and then later Ubuntu was just as bad, so I've been using Arch since a couple of years.

    Well, I use Windows 7, and yes Windows Update usually does a good job of installign drivers, but not for all hardware. Take for example newer ethernet and/or wifi drivers. You do a clean install, but...

    Well, that's right, most hardware does not until you install the proper driver. Some drivers are very difficult to find, and the only one available is the one supplied by the computer manufacturer...

    Well, I've been a Linux user since '98. Since then, I've had many computers and I've installed several flavors of Linux on them.

    It's really off:


    [ 15810.826] (**) RADEON(0): Option "EXAVSync" "off"

    Maybe something is broken in the driver for this chip? Any other options to turn on/off to increase performance?

    Problems with RS690

    Hello all,

    I'm using the radeon driver from git. Performance is really bad, as if I was using the vesa driver. Moving windows, resizing, scrolling, all are very slow.

    It makes little difference...

    Mobility HD4650 issues

    Two days ago I updated some kernel packages (Archlinux) and fglrx stopped working (it segfaults on X startup), so I decided to give another shot at the open source driver.

    I've never been much of a fan of desktop compositing, as it usually only adds eye candy but no real advantage. But this time I've decided to give it a try (again).
