I have recently stumbled upon a great article written by the uselessd maintainer that revolves around the topic of systemd debates. It can be found here:...
How much work is needed to complete the missing features?
GL_ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 started (Dave)
Gnome 2 (from Ubuntu 10.04) and current Firefox run very fine on my Athlon 1800+ (with 1GB RAM, Geforce 4 MX 420). Everything except for flash and high-res video is usable.
LXDE and XFCE would work...
Yup, but they're for people very experienced with Linux (power users).
Old hardware may still be of use. E.g. it could run a backup (or web) server (yes, I know about the Raspberry...
So what should they be using instead? Take a week and compile Gentoo (I'm not against Gentoo, it's very nice, but just not for everyone)? Ubuntu is (was?) the first choice distribution for many...
There are really people out there that cannot afford new boxes (I'm not speaking about myself).
And the whole argument: drop WinXP, install Linux stops making sense.
Many companies have dev centres in Israel.
It does not mean that Intel supports the war there and conduct of Israel.
Well, NVIDIA could just sign firmware images developed by Nouveau.
EDIT: On the other hand, it is very kind of NVIDIA that it does allow loading independent firmware images, albeit with slightly...
So this deals mostly with possibility of damaging the card.
(excuse me for the image size)
The API is stable AFAIK and therefore the work with packaging is minimal.
Ubuntu has been blacklisting all non-KMS drivers (except for uvesafb) since 12.04.
This is probably a good...
I have once read on LWN.net some Linux kernel confence coverage (I do not remember what was its name and am not able to find it).
The developers were discussing doing the kernel 3.0 release. There...
Systemd provided a very strict design discipline and I am afraid that this will be gone now.
I would miss especially:
- the read-only /etc dir (which was a really sensible idea, configuration...
There are software patents in Europe, just not that nasty.
Well, You always can have backdoors in the CPU:
if (rax == MAGIC_1 && rcx == MAGIC_2) jmp [rbx]
It is the i810 that has KMS missing.
Yup, since 2010.
Does Linux support KMS on the i830?
I meant relatively high-performance, faster then the David's patch.
It would be great if somebody wrote a decent (high-performance) KMS kernel driver for VESA.
The interface is very common, and works very good if the firmware knows your monitor resolution.
