    Steam has a bug in it that would make it difficult to support Fedora outright. Some of the libraries they used request both write and execute permissions on the same heap memory mapping. This...

    Of course. I haven't tried a Debian-based distro since Ubuntu 12.04 came out, but in April, multiarch still wasn't fully-realized. There were still many packages to be converted; meanwhile, the lack...

    The main reason I prefer Fedora's packaging system over Debian systems' is because it doesn't treat 64-bit x86 like it's a completely different architecture. Debian's 32-bit compatibility libraries...

    For what it's worth, I'm experiencing the same or similar bug with F17's 3.5.3 kernel and a Radeon HD 5570. Occasionally, I do get the first word of the ALSA test sounds to play (i.e. "Front" in...

    Bah, this is a message from leader to followers on how Valve's initiative is a mixed blessing for their mission. If you don't ascribe to the same belief system, then there's little point in...

    Some of the colors are pretty far off for the S2TC version. Wonder what's going on there.

    I'm an engineer, and I do care about Linux, open source, GPL, and all those "socialist" concepts. I'd love to contribute as much of my work as possible to the open source ecosystem. My colleagues are...

    That's it: prerendered scenes! FPGAs are just a sea of lookup tables, right? This one will only be a little bigger...

    Aha, I don't think this will really do much for open-source graphics. It appears to be a basic fixed-point, non-programmable pipeline, if I'm not missing a lot by skimming the code. An actually good...

    Maybe the open source drivers are bad at keeping the GPU fed, so more of the functional units sit idle for longer periods.

    If Michael was referring to speedup, then he has it right for Himeno. I don't think it fits in with normal English, but in computing, speedup is defined by the ratio of execution times. So a speedup...

    Haha, well I know this is the internet, but you might want to have some experience with whatever it is you're criticizing before you do it (joke or not). You sound misinformed at the very least.

    I...

    What are you smoking? RPM allows for both file and package dependencies, if you want. Frankly, the real dependencies are the files, anyway--the loader isn't searching through your package database to...

    Hm... you may be right. It looks like SPICE's primary focus is the environment with a remote virtualization server, though. For local VMs, does SPICE have features not already in VirtualBox?

    At...

    /yawn. Version bump release like the others.

    Not saying there wasn't a lot of hard work put into the release, but from a desktop user's standpoint, I don't think there's anything exciting here.

    I'd say yum is a little slower at search (and a hell of a lot slower if you use it with bash-completion), but it also has finer-grained dependency tracking than your typical DEB repositories. AFAIK,...

    Heh, except for Fedora. They seem to have no qualms with integrating the very latest display server and drivers (including releasing with beta versions at times). To be fair, it generally works out...

    For end users? Unless I'm reading something wrong, that's not true. It's free for whomever is serving AVC videos on the web for free (which may not include services that include advertisements).

    I beg to differ, Luc! I just did a couple days ago... but it was a pain. ;) Is there a document somewhere that tracks which versions of modules are compatible?

    The autoconf scripts tend to take...

    If it's only name changes, it shouldn't be a hard thing to fix. Search and replace on all your source files, and you're done.
