    Most monitors can only show 60fps and most desktops and drivers enable vsync so the game won't render more than 60fps anyway.

    Why do you think a dependency on a systemd library (like libsystemd0) is not a dependency on systemd? Do you realise that the systemd libraries are part of systemd and are built directly from the...

    That's not strictly true. What Lennart said (at least in the sandboxing Gnome video) was that packaging systems are useful for developers writing apps, and that he expects individual libraries etc....
  5. The reason not to make btrfs a dependency isn't...

    The reason not to make btrfs a dependency isn't because "btrfs is too new", it's because making a package manager depend on a specific filesystem is probably a bad idea.

    Advantages of relying on...

    Users should not have to use experimental repos, third party repos or compile their own to get stable graphics drivers. If you install Fedora or Ubuntu right now you will get recent and more stable...

    That excuse doesn't change the fact that the version in Jessie has lots of bugs, whereas the more recent versions in Fedora and Ubuntu have far fewer bugs. If the newer drivers are just "pre release...
  8. Glad to hear it works well for someone. Just...

    Yet the bug reports are still open for the version in Jessie. If the bugs have been closed, then the bug reports should've been closed.
  9. If you install two different desktops on the same...

    If you install two different desktops on the same system you might run in to problems and quirks, but this is true regardless of whether you are using Ubuntu or Debian. The problem is that the...

    Yes, it is just the default DE. If you run KDE or Gnome or XFCE or whatever it will still use Xorg.

    There is still Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu Gnome etc. for those who don't like Unity. One reason to use Ubuntu over Debian is that Ubuntu has hardware enablement (backports of modern kernels and drivers...

    What you describe is the problem of sub-project dependencies in testing. It is possible to bisect these kind of problems, but you have to plan a bit more since git doesn't do it automatically (even...

    Backtraces are usually useful - you won't know if your backtrace is useless or not until you get it.





    Are you talking about two separate issues here? You say that nobody managed to find a...

    Tracking down such a bug is not impossible, it just takes time and patience. The bug report you are linking to is a mess, as pointing out by others, it has become a dumping ground for different bugs...

    Some ideas:


    Timed AOSP build: AOSP has "notorious" build requirements, stretches new hardware, would be interesting to compare 4/8+ core CPUs.

  16. int is always 32-bit on Linux and Windows...

    int is always 32-bit on Linux and Windows otherwise compilers wouldn't be backwards compatible - you don't want to compile your code on 64-bit and discover that it doesn't work any more because some...

    I just posted an analysis of Ubuntu 14.04 running Firefox, Libreoffice writer and localc in the other thread. With those apps running in parallel the overhead was 32% which agrees with your figure....

    IMHO there is no need for 32-bit even on a 2GB system. It is easy to test specific use cases. From a 2GB VirtualBox VM with Ubuntu 14.04.1 ISO booted into the live desktop, run some apps and look at...

    What's up with Postmark? There's no obvious reason why a 64-bit database would do 10x more transactions than a 32-bit database, when databases are usually IO and not CPU bound. A CPU running 32-bit...

    Have you ever seen any benchmarks that show this claim to be accurate? 64-bit programs will use slightly more memory because each pointer is longer, but the effect of that on most programs will be to...
