  1. One more note about System 76

    The System 76 driver repo disables overclocking in the nvidia-settings utility. While I understand their motivation, my system has a card that I bought before they were shipping the 9xx series...
  2. Yes, you are just doing it right

    When I first got my GTX 970, System 76 wasn't shipping systems with the 9-series card yet, so their PPA didn't provide it. After "manual" installation the driver worked quite nicely, and I saw few...
  3. not true...

    Are you living in 2008? I've never seen this with Ubuntu. The driver just works, and far better than any AMD or Intel driver. I find the AMD driver regressing or performing poorly and hard...
  4. how to solve the display problem

    This solves the problem:

    $ sudo install kubuntu-desktop

    And then use KDE, which displays perfectly. When I buy a System 76 system with stock Ubuntu, its the first thing I do.

    OTOH, it...
  5. As others have pointed out, the other part of you...

    As others have pointed out, the other part of you trouble, outside of a poor GPU choice for Linux games, is the distribution. Suse is quite different from Ubuntu - I know I support both, but I run...
  6. ... and there's your problem

    You actually bought an AMD card to run on Linux and expect demanding games to work? Its not a decent machine for Linux thanks to lousy drivers. All my steam games run extremely well on my GTX 970.
  7. ARM has that ...

    I have Flash, Oracle Java 8, Chromium, and Firefox installed on my Jetson TK1. They all work very well. I even tested WebStorm 9 running on Oracle Java 8, and it runs quite nicely.

    While...

    Get a new joke

    When I was putting myself through school, I waited tables. One thing that got old very quick was some "genius" customer thinking he had thought of a brilliant joke for the very first time, repeating...
  9. Classy response!

    Classy response. Please ask your therapist about your anger issues.

    The reality is if you want high performance, stable graphics on Linux, NV is the only company that has delivered a complete...
  10. you're right

    It is not open hardware. But they are trying to get the entire software stack OSS. Originally it came with Nvidia graphics, but they changed that. On one hand, it cuts out a binary blob, but the...
  11. This looks much better

  12. No regressions? Let's see about that...

    Every AMD Linux solution I have ever tried has been riddled with constant regressions. A feature will work for a year, and then break for 6 months, and then be semi-fixed for 3 months until it is...
  13. blow an extra $30 on the GTX 970

    If you are going to spend nearly $2,000, you might as well spend the extra $30-$40 to bump up to the GTX 970. Its got better overall performance (around the GTX 780 / r9 290x range) and much better...

    I agree

    I agree. I do not like coffeescrpit and typescript and other silly languages that compile to js. They usually add much more complexity than they avoid, especially when debugging. Code standards,...

    JavaScript is evolving

    Yes JavaScript is evolving. And yes, it's not a very nice language, with a fair amount of cruft and frustrating limitations. And because it has been treated like a disposable language and is often...
  16. Shield tablet + Ubuntu

    The Jetson TK1 does a very good jog of running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS thanks to NVs L4V distro. I'd like to see the Shield tablet - which runs the same Tegra K1 SoC - run Ubuntu. That tablet has very...
  17. Plasma 5 doesn't appear as ambitious as KDE4

    I think they learned their lesson on KDE 4 - at least I hope so :). Plasma 5 already looks pretty good, and they have been getting feedback for months.
  18. Recommended distro

    I've had the Jetson TK1 since early May. It runs L4T (Linux for Tegra) which is a lightly tweaked Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and uses the same repositories. It runs very well with KDE and 2GB of ram,...
  19. Polished in every possible way?

    Obviously, you must be referring the the turd called Apple Maps. Its been polished now for, what, two years? Or maybe Siri, which is so behind the (more open) competition that is literally comical....
  20. if you want a good android tablet...

    For about the same price, the Tegra Note 7 (a tablet almost a year old) is better in almost all respects (stock android, much better upgrade support, superior graphics, comparable compete, front...
