    Actually, someone's already beaten me to it:

    Unfortunately, this bug has been around forever and a day:

    Honestly, what'll save me more grief is to just get a laptop with an NVidia based chipset. Which is what I intend to do when this one finally bites the big one.

    It's fairly pathetic that to use...

    Sigh.

    The radeon OSS driver is the biggest pile of trash I've ever had the misfortune to use. And, unfortunately, I'm stuck using it because my laptop has an older ATI chipset that ATI no longer...

    Why not just write the test suite in something like Perl, if you need a scripting language.

    It seems a bit silly to be developing a test suite using PHP.

    Yet my brand spanking new ATI card with either the ATI drivers or the FOSS drivers doesn't perform as well (in Linux) as my older tech NVidia card.

    So, seriously, I hope NVidia keeps doing what...

    Don't forget to mention that XV still crashes when you go to fullscreen, you get odd video effects with XV and composite, and occasionally X won't start.

    But when it does, man, that...

    Exactly.. Redhat has given us NetworkManager and other gnome related projects, and Novell is probably one of the biggest contributors to both KDE and Gnome.

    Damn those corporations!

    Wow... considering that those corporations (RedHat, Novell, IBM, and Intel) provide about 1/3 of the code that goes into the Kernel, clearly you're not a Linux supporter.

    But then again, I'm...

    I'd recommend OpenSuse. I've been using Linux for about 10 years, and I've reached the point where I just want things to *work* and not have to worry about fixing broken bits myself.

    On that...

    Amarok. Hands down, it's the best media player on any platform. If you do a lot of media burning, you may also want to look at K3B.

    The thing I like most about KDE is the network transparency. ...

    Totally agree.

    I sometimes wonder, really do, if all of the people who clamor for open source drivers and refuse to touch NVidia's closed (and working) drivers are either (a) really windows users...

    Because I only need it on certain networks. Hence the dispatcher scripts.

    Somehow, someway, either this or NetworkManager needs to have proxy support. I've hacked around this with ugly dispatcher scripts, but it's very, very ugly.

    I picked up an ATI 4650 because I wanted to support ATI. I ended up picking up a GF9400GT because the ATI drivers were so bad.

    Take my advice, stick with NVidia until ATI gets the driver...

    And hey... maybe when that happens, I can pull my 4650 out of the closet and use it for something again. Until that day when I can use an ATI driver in Linux for something useful, it's staying in...

    How does NVidia do that? Contrary to ATI, which is dropping support for older chipsets, NVidia maintains and updates legacy drivers for their older hardware.

    Really? As far as I can tell, doing anything on Linux requires compiling your own software or using a repository. And from the repos, I can get ffmpeg and MPlayer with VDPAU support.
