    Don't know why some vocal Arch users claim the system is faster than other distros, e.g. Ubuntu. I use Arch myself and the main advantage is mostly being cutting edge (or bleeding edge if you choose...

    Well, that's not "touching" a file… Well, I'd never consider using VLC for MP3 or any media that another player plays, but this is just personal preference, but it wasn't included in your initial...

    Implying you don't use any advanced disk setup, i.e. RAID or LVM2

    Touching them is not enough in most cases, you actually have to put in some data. touch just creates empty files.

    Well, now you...

    EricG got it right. This is something that eases stuff for maintainers. This way, you enable systemd's network support and your livecd will most likely boot once if it ships with systemd. Bigger...

    (emphasis mine)

    Is this correct or an error? I cannot imagine there encoding support for these formats, and the name VDPAU implies otherwise as well.

    The "systemd is linux only" argument made by some is totally moot IMHO. If components which cannot be swapped between debian versions are a matter, why do they support jails? They don't work on...

    Even as only a "casual" system administrator (I run Arch, so I'm not a complete stranger to my systems' internals), I was amazed by the step from initscripts to systemd, because let's face it,...

    Did anybody expect Kaveri to beat Intel performance-wise? It should be clear by now that with their current CPU architecture, they won't beat Intel neither performance- nor efficiency-wise. Intel is...

    I didn't mean the actual cost of the JTAG chip, more that there are few people who actually need an x86 development board so the run is smaller. I bought (or got bought by my university) a weaker dev...

    A mini-itx-board is something else entirely. This one offers, for example, JTAG, so the audiences are completely different, and the one for a device like the gizmosphere is much smaller, so prices...

    Well, looking at it, it is expensive, but it does offer improvements over what you can usually get in the ARM department - the Ethernet appears to be Gigabit (I have the Wandboard which is actually...

    About the twitch.tv plugin (which I also use a lot)... last change broke it and according to forums, a manual intervention is required. What is actually easier is to go to MrSprigster's GitHub fork...

    I heavily suggest trying out the mesa-git repo. I use it as well and it is frickin' sweet. Also, add the kernel parameter to your boot options as explained here and in the arch wiki.

    Thanks to...

    Does this mean the 7000 and 8000 series of AMD cards can be used with the radeon driver for stuff like compositing for your window manager with 3.14? I am considering building a new PC and would like...

    It does, but when I checked, it seemed to work for WiFi only?! Perhaps it was my fault. I remember there being a plugin that wasn't suited for my use case.

    Man, finally. Setting up systems without a classical DE and NetworkManager (my XBMC HTPC is an example) has always been a PITA, and the available command line tools didn't always work perfectly.

    The open drivers work exceptionally well for older cards. Doesn't help the 7XXX owners, but if you had told someone five years ago that you'd today be able to watch full screen hardware accelerated...

    AMD has the chance here to become more important. Valve always said they prefer the open drivers by Intel, and AMD has good ones.

    AMD's Linux support (that the public knows of) is much older than Valve's, and on a different level. It always takes them some time to release newer specs and docs, has always been that way. But...
