    Performance-per-Watt for 750Ti looks amazing here.

    But I refuse to run a non-free driver, so I'd love to see this working on the open-source drivers someday, then get benchmarks of those. And a...

    Incidentally, Debian Developer John Goerzen has written a series of articles on that subject, e.g.:...

    Valve's talk at DebConf14 mentioned working directly with some upstream projects, like Mesa I think was given as an example. This sort of thing filters into most GNU/Linux distros eventually (some...

    SteamOS built a console gaming platform out of Debian. But why pretend to be a dumb console, mimic its limitations, the fiddliness of its UI and hide its inner workings. Knowing that the hardware...

    To adjust the system clock - we can't let just any user do that. Most systems have a way for NTP to do that after dropping from root to a lesser-privileged user (e.g. /dev/clockctl on NetBSD).

    FreeBSD devd sounds exactly like acpid in that events can run scripts or other executables, which is a very simple interface and allows tons of flexibility to do what you want. Debugging is easy as...

    Oh I see, thanks, the HD 7850 (Southern Islands) support is not complete: https://wiki.freebsd.org/Graphics
    so an older card actually should perform better.



    By default I don't think the lid...

    Pretending it does not exist, would na´ve reader make.

    Thanks; interesting that only a few of the tests show a big difference in performance now.

    That graphics card should work on GNU/kFreeBSD for 3D acceleration, only the "firmware-linux-nonfree"...

    You might agree with me, that it's amazing what some people haved created, based on just a simple window manager, fvwm2:

  11. Odd shape for a phone; could well be a tablet...

    Odd shape for a phone; could well be a tablet (rounded sides for easier grip or to pick it up more easily from a flat surface).
    And they did say "countdown to something 'big'"...

    So it's more like a Debian packaging/integration issue, but it sucks.

    You upgrade from wheezy to jessie, because you want to have the supported stable release or just to get newer versions of your...

    HD6870 always seemed to work better on Linux than even some of their more recent cards. Although that may change someday in the future.

    And if you prefer to use a free, open-source drivers, this...

    From the overview, it doesn't sound like a hypervisor or full virtualisation at all. Just a supervisor for para-virtualised containers on a single Linux kernel instance... like OpenVZ was doing many...
  15. Probably the generic kernel has all you need. If...

    Probably the generic kernel has all you need. If not, you're probably going to recompile it anyway, because OpenBSD's build system makes it so quick and easy to do that. Then you don't even need to...

    Debian GNU/kFreeBSD in sid please :)

    KMS graphics should be now working with Intel i915, or Radeon with firmware-linux-nonfree, or some NVidia cards.

    Partitioning with separate / and /home...

    Pentium III was indestructible! I must have a dozen such machines still usable after 15 years, quite able to run core network services reliably, such as router / firewall / mailserver / DNS cache /...

    When can we start 3D-printing our own hardware?

    Or, maybe there's enough scrap hardware in the world that would be just fine if only the software became more efficient.

    Did that already; not often that I donate money instead of time or code to a free software project, but I think LibreSSL, OpenSSH, etc. are so important to our future.



    And I love the cover...
