    The initial bug report was because it wouldn't get acceleration working. This change updates the microcode, now it appears to be working. Yes, theoretically, if AMD completely botched the microcode...

    Gabe Newell and Valve Customer Service both have said that in the event of Valve going bankrupt that a failsafe will go off that will ensure that games can be played without Valve. Also, for EA games...

    I don't have anything to add. I just wanted to make sure this post doesn't get drowned out by the trolls and the mob, to ensure it gets the attention it needs to.

    You obviously never read my Wayland writeup haha. You're right in that Wayland has no 'built-in' concept of networking. That being said, the protocol and the extensions are efficient enough that a...

    Okay so the Arctic Silver 5 dropped the temps a few degree, much closer to what it was before. I can't pull up the exact temps right now since a couple days after the AS5 came in, I had to RMA the...

    On Ubuntu I think it is. The other distros and the kernel all default to CFQ, I think.

    Didn't realize it was Rawhide, my phone doesn't like the mailing list for some reason so I couldn't actually see the log provided. So this really is nothing more than "DNF isn't idiot-proof!" Sigh..

    Read the above. With OpenGL you can claim "Support" if you manage to back the feature up with software rendering. Feature levels mandate that if you say you "support it" then you HAVE TO be able to...

    The speed aspect comes from a few places..

    1) The backend that handles the dependency resolution is a library taken from openSUSE and has, supposedly, already had the crap optimized out of it by...

    Yeah I'm with Luke on this one. If my hardware didn't do at least OpenGL 3... I'd be looking to upgrade. I get that its not viable for everyone because of one reason or another, but still. Hell this...

    Because even on high end setups you Vblanks will still screw you? Assuming you like image fidelity. Yes, frame rates that are lower than the monitors refresh rate can suck. Frame rates HIGHER than...

    If you have access to an exchange server to try it out, test Evolution. I know the GNOME guys were working pretty hard on bringing Evolution's Exchange support up to par.

    Status Notifiers are the basis for Ubuntu's AppIndicatora, as a way to drop the legacy way to do system tray icons which was via xembed. Dropping of xembed icons has been known for months and is kind...

    No its because Weston isn't really the place to put something like that. The idea of "minimize" is very desktop-centric. From the moment XDG-Shell was announced every blog post I read all said that...

    I'm actually very surprised to see Nouveau getting PRESENT so quickly. Even Intel devs were saying that DRI3 was relatively easy to do, but that implementing PRESENT was being a total pain in the...
