  1. GCC's compilation stages

    Just add "-fdump-ipa-all -fdump-tree-all" option to GCC and it will fill the working directory with ~100 files, one for each stage. How many stages does Clang/LLVM have?

    How is this new?

    I don't understand. For years, I've been doing this:

    1. Go to KDE3 menu > Start new session (or "Switch user" in KDE4)
    2. To switch between the previous and new Xservers, use ctrl+alt+F7 or...

    HAL works on Linux, BSD and Solaris. Udev, on the other hand, is a Linux-specific thing. If they remove support for HAL, won't that decrease portability in X.Org?
    This might be a silly question. But...

    It would win them all hands down. Try the following command on any distro:

    What about programming documentation for GPUs? Any plans on disclosing them? Or still want to continue to lock people into using windows and linux?

    Slackware or openSuSE
