    Interesting to see such an old thingy to be still kicking tho, I kinda dismissed emacs (and variants) as tools that only dinosaurs use...

    It isn't part of the stable release because it is not stable.
    Untill recently, 64bit support for firefox running cairo-gtk3 backend was lacking, plugins (flash...) didn't work at all and it was...

    Im well aware, my main point was that you can't take D/Haskell/etc compiler and simply generate 'user space like' code constructs in kernel.
    Also, kmalloc doesn't really work as drop in replacement...
  8. This is nice and all, but im still waiting for...

    This is nice and all, but im still waiting for <threads.h> support (for like 3 years).
    Kinda wish that we finally had a push towards portable threads, even if only for _some_ architectures (x86,...

    The sad thing is that nvidia drivers aren't perfect either, but alternatives are worse (ati has a bad drivers, intel has fairly limited hardware but excellent driver support).
    And then there is mesa...

    My bad, I stand corrected. These guys are raising airbrows lately.

    Geez, this is gonna be yet another pointless debate :(

    LP let trolls get on his nerves, since he is overprotective of his projects. Bad thing is that both constructive and destructive criticizm...

    Community is full of assholes (myself included), deal with it.


    If a 'change' makes your box unbootable or breaks some userspace program (ulatencyd...),
    LP tells you to fix your setup and close...

    Memory allocation doesn't play a role here, kernel doesn't have malloc()/new keyword or other perks that userspace code has.
    If you want memory, you have to manually allocate it, page by page....

    Did not see any performance gain after the update, laptop that I have pushes 100fps@high on windows and external monitor (1920x1200),
    on linux I have about 30-60fps and sometimes when I turn the...

    Well, instead of complaining here, try complaining at amd support.

    Or better yet, try to purchase nvidia hardware in future if you can help it.
    Yes, it works better on linux, but it's because...

    Wikileaks presented the proof months ago and this is indeed happening (things similar to 'great seal bug' for targeted spying), but to this date there is no proof of some well known vendor doing it....

    Panicking ain't helpful either, what would help the most is awareness. Seneral statement that you are gonna get owned if you connect to public wifi is false.
    Sysadmins should indeed be aware of the...

    1) Debian had this for loong time, can't remember which site, but you used to put in hwids coming out of lspci and you get back info & kernel modules to use with the device.
    2) Since linux isn't...

    Inotify is kernel mechanism, this thingy is an userspace tool that takes advantage of it (and other similar mechanisms on other supported OSs).
