  1. Changing DPM power state with Fedora 19

    I recently installed an RV630 GPU into my HTPC so that its screen could use its DVI input and because the on-board Nvidia was giving me some instability problems with Nouveau. As this computer is not...

    That is besides the point, really. All I am saying is that XBill was kind of immature to begin with.

    It should point out here though that I doubt any of you had a problem when it was Bill Gates and Windows that was being mocked in the original XBill.

    I do not have a problem with Lennart...

    Yeah, at this point I am probably going to go with the Cable Matters adapter I linked to previously on Amazon. It is normally around $35.00 CDN, but it is around 50% off at the moment and has nine...

    Based on my research it looks as simple as replacing Option "ZaphodHeads" "DVI-0" with Option "ZaphodHeads" "DisplayPort-0" in my xorg.conf file.

    I suppose the only way to find out now is to...

    Both of my monitors only have VGA outputs, something I did of course check beforehand. I also have several spare VGA only monitors around my house, and through the use of this adapter I could in...
  7. Dual Head with two VGA monitors on a Radeon HD 6870

    So after seeing all of the glowing coverage that the Radeon HD 6870 was getting with the FOSS drivers on Phoronix I finally broke down and found myself a good deal on Kijiji that got me two Sapphire...

    I actually really like the fact that I can configure certain screens while other stuff is installing with the new Anaconda; I only wish they could make more actions available.

    Micheal should really do another article based on those blog posts.
  10. Agreed, to claim that the radeon drivers are at...

    Agreed, to claim that the radeon drivers are at 30% the performance of Catayst is laughable in this day and age.
  11. Well, I switched to Xfce when 4.10 was released...

    Well, I switched to Xfce when 4.10 was released as GNOME 3 was never going to support my chosen monitor configuration, which later resulted in two of my brothers switching soon after as they usually...
  12. I understand the sentiment but in the case of RWS...

    I understand the sentiment but in the case of RWS you are being completely unfair - Postal 3 was essentially stolen from them by their publisher at the time, meaning that they could not even get the...
  13. Which completely ignores the fact that one of the...

    Which completely ignores the fact that one of the main purposes of these benchmarks is also to show how the drivers themselves have been progressing rather than just testing what games work at the...
  14. Seconded. All of these people complained back...

    Seconded.

    All of these people complained back when it was all Quake engine games being used, so Micheal eventually managed to get the Valve games working in decent enough shape for benchmarking in...

    Preacher sermonizing the converted of course, but I for one am more than happy to accept slightly smaller frame-rates for all of the convenience that a properly mainlined Linux kernel graphics driver...

    Well, I was of course aware of the Arch Wiki given the fact that I just wrote an article for it; my main problem was the assumption that architectures had to be more hard set than they actually are.
  17. So I did manage it by using the steps outlined...

    So I did manage it by using the steps outlined here:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Migrating_Between_Architectures_Without_Reinstalling#Install_kernel_.2864-bit.29

    If nothing else, I am...

    At any rate, I decided to spread the knowledge around a little bit by making a page for this on the Arch Wiki:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bisecting_Mesa
  19. Interestingly enough my system was also immune...

    Interestingly enough my system was also immune from the HyperZ problems with Brütal Legend about a year ago because mine was still 32 bit while my brother's was 64 bit, something which allowed me to...
