    You run a 400-server cluster, in which you 'adapt things and control them' through the init system often enough that you care, but you can't spell the name (SysVinit) of the init system you...

    Nope, just yet another crazy name.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_kernel_names

    It's far less strange than, say, "Erotic Pickled Herring" or "Err Metey! A Heury Beelge-a Ret!"....
  3. Doesn't look like the ffmpeg return suggestion...

    Doesn't look like the ffmpeg return suggestion got anywhere, then. Debian/Ubuntu/Mint get stuck with buggy, poorly-supported libav for another two years. :(
  4. ext2, as a non-journalling filesystem, is better...

    ext2, as a non-journalling filesystem, is better suited for small removable media (thumbdrives, SD cards etc) than ext3 or ext4. It's quite possibly still the most commonly used fs in that role...

    Isn't dust an issue, with all the 'rear panel' vents/fans/ports facing upwards? :confused:
    For anyone who isn't a hardware reviewer, I can't see how the added bulk and reduced internal space would...

    They're generated from branches by git-send-email in a standard format, and the commits in question can be pulled, examined and fiddled with using whatever review tool you like.
    Very different from...

    They're caching per-user (how? why?) in the home directory: "~/.AMD/GLCache".
    I'd have thought a system-wide cache in /var would make more sense, but apparently not. :rolleyes:
  8. Doesn't this put Linux's OpenGL support on SB...

    Doesn't this put Linux's OpenGL support on SB ahead of the Windows drivers (which only expose 3.1 IIRC)?
    Is that a first for mainstream consumer hardware? :D

    As a regular KDevelop user (C++, PHP, Python...), this is great news! ;)
    The QtHelp and PHP fixes in particular will be very useful.
  10. Thinkpad HDAPS is even better than these Dell and...

    Thinkpad HDAPS is even better than these Dell and Toshiba things - the full accelerometer data is accessible by the OS* - and fully supported by Linux .

    *this means you can use it as a fake...

    There are quite a few ultrabooks with ridiculously high DPIs now, from most of the major manufacturers. Within a year or so it'll be a significant requirement, so Qt needs to get support in now, so...
  12. Yes. It does lower CPU load when watching videos...

    Yes. It does lower CPU load when watching videos (from ~50% to ~25% IME), but at the cost of some distracting flickering at 720p and being just about unwatchable at 1080p.
    Not worth it IMO, after...
  13. I can't help but think there should have been at...

    I can't help but think there should have been at least one stable release by now, perhaps without all the new features.
    It's already well past the point where improvements for most people outweigh...
  14. You can do most of the same sorts of things (but...

    You can do most of the same sorts of things (but not all, obviously) with a smartphone or tablet, and none of the free-tablet initiatives seem to have got anywhere.

    The closest you can get without...

    The maximum input power is unchanged (at 5W for a decent adaptor), so 1W less used by the board itself -> 1W more for USB.

    Now maybe you can plug a keyboard and a mouse in simultaneously, and not...

    Not 'System D', 'systemd', in the ancient fashion of UNIX daemons. If $PURPOSE'd' is a stupid name, a good chunk of your core system is stupidly named. :rolleyes:

    On-topic, this does sound like a...

    Yup, KDevelop's context-based tooltips/file-opening/renaming/search tools are awesome. Better than anything else I've tried for C++, and one of very few IDEs I've seen that gets any useful...

    I don't see how 'converting' Openbox to be a Wayland compositor could make any sense - it does almost nothing beyond allowing you to drag windows about, with minimal UI, so just about all the code...

    Well, in the literal sense of processing code before the compiler sees it, I don't think the OP calling it a 'preprocessor' was that wide of the mark.
    Anyway, it's nice to have a short dicussion on...

    He's not referring to the standard C++ preprocessor - which, while rather clunky, is at least familiar to all C or C++ devs - but to the moc. Which is rather weird and difficult to understand the...
