  1. That's what happens when they insist on using old...

    That's what happens when they insist on using old kernels (patching the Hell out of them) for "stability"

    I got a server with RHEL 4 (the current redhat distro at the time), it was nothing exotic,...
  2. I'm no longer playing Steam games in Linux (back...

    I'm no longer playing Steam games in Linux (back to good old Slackware64 now that it's got a more modern graphics stack) but ironically, even though it used a DirectX wrapper rather than being...
  3. Installing software to /usr/local when a distro...

    Installing software to /usr/local when a distro package exists will cause problems too. I don't just care about runtime dependencies, I actually want to be able to compile and link without having to...
  4. Yes, with power comes the ability to shoot...

    Yes, with power comes the ability to shoot yourself in the foot. To me this sounds like good news, I'm sick and tired of the dumbing down and crippling of Linux distributions.

    When a stupid...
  5. I'd like to be Linux exclusive, but unfortunately...

    I'd like to be Linux exclusive, but unfortunately we're just not there. I was, up until around 2007 or so. I only bought games that had native Linux ports. Unreal Tournament games, Doom 3 and...
  6. This isn't as bad as I thought it was going to...

    This isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, with all the buttache I've been reading about.

    It's a bit sluggish for me, but playable with "Medium" settings at 1920x1080 and it still looks...
  7. That sounds suspiciously like the problem I had....

    That sounds suspiciously like the problem I had. It's likely the 32 bit direct rendering GLX context (that Steam is aware of). What I found is that the xorg/mesa updates (at least the i386...

    There's no denying that Nvidia is a better supported option on Linux, but that doesn't give people license to write things that only work with the proprietary Nvidia driver and take everyone else's...
  9. Quoting myself, but thinking about this, I can't...

    Quoting myself, but thinking about this, I can't actually say nothing has ever done that. Call of Duty Ghosts, when it crashes, leads to an unrecoverable lockup if using beta and the current stable...

    See, that's the thing, it's a hard lockup. There is no net... the machine neither responds to ping nor higher level requests.

    Nothing else does that in Linux or Windows. (But yes, I'm sure it is...

    Developers don't get to dictate hardware.

    I have a lot of games that work well, and I wasn't born yesterday.
  12. Too bad Painkiller and Deadfall Adventures don't...

    Too bad Painkiller and Deadfall Adventures don't actually work correctly. Pretty hard to take them seriously... that's some of the worst rubbish I've ever seen.

    It's probably OK if you have Nvidia...

    I have only one thing to say to anyone complaining about pictures of beer.

    Go and get yourselves a life, and stop trying to cheapen everyone else's.

    No, I'm not one of those "Arrrrr! Beer!"...
  14. I haven't seen that in a long time, but it's LCD...

    I haven't seen that in a long time, but it's LCD displays now and they take some time to mode switch, so there could just be a black screen in that instant most likely.

    P.S. This is about images...
  15. I am sorry to be negative, but I don't think the...

    I am sorry to be negative, but I don't think the latest drivers benefit the 5000 series at all. For me, with my HD 5870, there is a serious performance degradation with latest fglrx betas (13.11 Beta...

    You're of course right that an easy peasy remote root exploit is probably the worst sort of thing overall, but in the context of this particular situation, with OpenSSL, it's of dire severity because...

    I remember in the good old days, flaws in the DRM drivers like not clearing graphics memory and having images appear on the screen at untimely moments. For example while mode switching, or shutting...

    I also got on the beta (I didn't realize there was one until I saw someone else say it) and found that it improved performance, and even better last night after the last update.

    I'm still using...

    Bear in mind that we're talking about different hardware here. Mine is an HD 5870, an old chipset. You're in the 7000 series, the newer drivers may be better for you.

    That often happens... the...

    I have no problem (essentially) saying "a bunch of creeps from China have the audacity to try to patent this"

    If Chinese people are offended, do they group themselves in with these creeps, or do...
