    Spoke a little too soon, just experienced some minor corruption with unicode filenames on a Jessie system. This problem has already been fixed upstream but Jessie will need a kernel and/or fsck.f2fs...

    I mentioned previously that I got it working as a root filesystem on Debian Jessie without too much extra fiddling. The missing piece is a recent enough version of initramfs-tools, which I grabbed...

    My wife and I recently gave up waiting and switched to Kdenlive. We haven't looked back. It takes a little more getting used to but once you've figured it out, it boasts more features and is a hell...

    There is at least one person trying to make it work more generally using DRM but progress has been painfully slow.

    The machine stays on but Steam doesn't. I guess I've just been unlucky.

    I actually used Steam more last month than I ever have on Linux at least. But that's just me. :p I have yet to see the survey.

    I've installed it at work but haven't had a chance to really try it out yet. I've not long switched to Opera 27 but I think I might like this better. I wasn't going to say anything but there's too...

    Okay, we bought a new Geode-based PC Engines ALIX last month but it's not exactly the sort of machine you'd run a Fedora desktop on. It doesn't even have a graphical output. We opted for OpenWRT. It...

    We've been testing Jessie on a number of to-be production machines. Seemed silly to start with Wheezy now. Very happy with it overall. These include a couple of PC Engines APU boxes and I managed to...

    It did take some setting adjustments and time to get used to before it felt like my retinas weren't burning. Now I'm very happy with it.

    I had a P4 Sony Vaio that, apart from weighing a ton and being built like a tank, blew like the fires of hell. The battery life was so miserable, I rarely relied on it. I hated that thing. There's a...

    No, what I had was branded as Pentium 4. It had the Prescott core. And quit top posting. It's annoying on mailing lists but it's just plain wrong on forums.

    Surprised that after 7 pages, no one has remembered that the later Pentium 4s actually were 64-bit. I ran my first 64-bit Gentoo system on one.

    I knew about USR1 but Pipe Viewer is very nice.

    I've been thinking about this some more and I can't think where an EOF would actually be used in this context. The OS knows how big the underlying disk is. If I ask a utility to copy from a block...

    I was being a little facetious. I realised afterwards that tee would probably work but admittedly not quite as straightforward.

    Back in the pre-1.0 days, there used to be alternative clients that actually were compatible with the official server but they quickly fell behind.

    Good stuff. The vfork stuff is quite amusing though. It's a very controversial call and they appear to acknowledge that. I actually thought it did the same thing as fork on regular Linux systems but...

    I suspect fewer people have played it. I never did. It was the last Japan-only title to be released in the west.
