    I'm 99% sure this is about nouveau - it's still severely lacking (reclocking/fan management).

    More importantly how many backdoors does Viber contain? Or it just sends its traffic via NSA HQs? I guess the latter. Why bother with hidden features, when you can sniff everything?

    I stopped updating GCC after version 4.7.

    All later releases generate super bloated code which usually runs slower than the one produced using GCC 4.7.4 or GCC 4.5.4.

    I cannot understand where...

    This whole situation sucks big time.

    Like the one with LibreOffice vs OpenOffice, like KDE vs TDE, etc.

    I mean we don't have that many dedicated open source developers, we have many software...

    Here's your new Linux kernel: here's a number of new regressions. We, Linux developer, love regressions ;-)

    What really sucks about DNF is:



    For that, I can only say fuck you, guys. People who run DNF in CLI want to see this information. GUI users might not care at all.

    Too much fuss about exactly nothing.

    Yum won't remove systemd/glibc/rpm 'cause they are hardcoded.

    Such preferences can be hardcoded into DNF as well. I guess it will take just a few lines of...

    Hooray!!

    I've been using kinda old 3.2.4 so far 'cause I refuse to use anything based on GTK3.

    Run it under a separate user (it's in Russian but the instructions are easy to follow).

    usermod is only required if you have problems with audio/video capture - so, adjust for your system (you...

    Linux: how are we going to fuck our users today?



    Likewise here - still using 2.2.0.35 and not going to upgrade any time soon. Fuck new features when crucial old ones are constantly removed or...

    God, without any source of income, how do you expect them to live on and prosper?

    They have no money, nor manpower to run their servers or develop anything.

    Count them dead. Being them I'd have...

    Unigine is not worth mentioning any longer: they have long stopped being a game engine ...

    They are all about geoapplications and simulation nowadays.

    Either you are extremely dumb, or you just know nil about the kernel.

    Among other very CPU intensive things that the kernel does, are 1) Encryption (even AES can be stressful on CPUs which don't...

    A pointless comparison for one very important reason.

    For normal tasks the kernel uses very little CPU time so you won't feel the difference between different compilers, or between different...

    Michael, you've tested zero actual games.

    No one buys these beasts to play HL2 or run Unigine benchmarks.

    This makes no sense, Michael.

    The ACPI performance governor cannot be slower than ondemand one. It just cannot - it keeps the CPU at its highest frequency all the time.

    More importantly: does it shrink?

    It's my most significant concern before I ever start using it again.



    Once I lost over 150GB of data on RHEL 5 when I was using it (six years ago). The data...
