  1. In case you didn't notice, we have had PulseAudio...

    In case you didn't notice, we have had PulseAudio 1.0 since 2011. It was introduced precisely to fix the problems you mentioned. Of course one application blocks the others while using the sound...

    Yup, ALSA has been with us since 1999 (that's 16 years now - boy, I feel old) and OSS still works in the very latest kernel version exactly the way it did back then. What better backward...

    GPLv3 is actually better for commercial interests. It has an explicit patent grant and it's compatible with more FOSS licenses, such as the Apache one.

    There's a lot of 32-bit hardware out there. One of the key points of advantage of Linux is that it doesn't force hardware upgrades onto its users, and it can run even on the oldest hardware. And...

    Seems fair to me. People using the GPLv3 versions of bash have the warranty of being able to fix the bug. People using older versions haven't, and if they can't upgrade, this bug might go as far as...
  7. Security? Whose?

    Why should the hardware defend itself from the driver in the name of the user's security, when the driver is obviously already trusted by the user and can, if it wants, program the hardware to do all...
  8. Since Xorg is OSS, even if this took long, this...

    Since Xorg is OSS, even if this took long, this bug was seen and fixed by someone who had no relationship whatsoever with who created it. If it wasn't OSS, this bug would stay unnoticed forever,...

    I've heard that the VT code is somewhat limited, hard to maintain, doesn't support complex writing systems and doesn't fit very well with other modern kernel subsystems. However, from a user's point...

    He was wrong in the sense that GCC does accept add-ons and has done so for years now. He was told so in the list by GCC developers.

    Missing the point

    RMS didn't say that LLVM isn't technically useful. He said that LLVM is worse than it could be from the point of view of free software, because it helps people leverage free software to build...

    I think you probably already have this information, but I'm posting it just in case. An IP server can choose which interfaces it wants to listen on when it bind()s his listen socket to the IP address...

    Sigh, the cursed thing is new, clean, is using Intel's own "thermal solution", and it's winter. And I haven't even installed a graphics card yet. I'm afraid that the situation will get worse when we...
  17. A question: how hot is an Haswell cpu supposed to get?

    Dear CPU experts,
    I have a desktop box with an i5-4670K @3.4 GHz cpu, not overclocked, using the stock fan, and when I use all four cores, the thing gets quite hot: when building the linux kernel...

    Log priorities in the standard error? You can't have them unless the program is rewritten with the promise that its standard error is formatted in a certain way. Which is against (1) - and then a...
  19. The subshell is just an example to show that even...

    The subshell is just an example to show that even something as dumb as a bash shell can capture the standard error of a daemon and save it to a file. So saying that this is a "real problem that can...

    1) Aren't daemons supposed to use syslog for logging anyway?
    2) /usr/sbin/my_daemon 2> /var/log/my_daemon.log & ? Can't I do this with sysvinit or whatever else?



    You could argue that the only...
