    So if I understand your argument, you are saying that there should be no pro or expert tools of any kind because a beginner might try to use them, find it difficult, and give up on the idea entirely....

    Are you seriously taking issue with people's hobbies? Because some people want to devote their time to making something they want instead of something you want, they're hurting the Linux community?...

    Yes, but the microcode is the hardware interface to the card. It should be the kernel/graphics driver's job to prevent people from abusing it. I mean, if I have hardware level access to the SATA...

    Not sure what that is.. Seems to happen to me occasionally, too. I suspect it has to do with the mouse-capture interfering with the window manager, but that's just a gut feeling. Alt-Tabbing away and...

    To answer my own question... This thing fails on my system because it can't find "/usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command". I don't run GNOME or a screensaver, so I just did a "ln -s /bin/true...

    Same here on Gentoo x86_64 - GTX 670. Well, I only get "after 149 requests" instead of 153, but otherwise it's the same. If someone figures out the magic incantations to make it work, please post it...

    Just out of curiosity, what distro are you running? I've never noticed a problem with CFS, and I've never been able to see a difference with BFS on my i7 3930k or my i7 920. But, I'm running a fairly...

    Why not? I've been using it on production systems where I work for years. It's a fine filesystem, and I trust my data on it. I can't (yet) say that about BTRFS.

    The only real problem with it on...

    You are making the mistake of assuming that all "programmers" have the same skill set. I, personally, might have the skills to modify a terminal program to support 32 colors, but I sure as hell don't...

    Well, I can only speak to what I've read on the Internet, but it seems that it would require a pretty serious re-write of the VT code to accomplish this. 8 (or is it 16?) colors is fairly fundamental...

    Not with the kernel's VT implementation, but if you are running a framebuffer console you can run fbterm which I believe supports 256 colors when TERM=fbterm.

    It had to be compiled sometime. Just because the distro maintainers do it, doesn't mean it wasn't compiled. I would expect that the distro was compiled with the GCC version they ship with it, so...

    It's not called "sse3" in /proc/cpuinfo. I believe the kernel calls it "pni" for "Prescott New Instructions" which was the Intel code name.

    I would caution you that this is not a "magic bullet." While it seems like an excellent compiler, it will not speed everything up. It appears to come from the HPC world and does a great job on heavy...

    The copy I got with the HIB works on Linux. Don't know if there's a demo or stand-alone copy for Linux available.

    Also, in the article, I think this is uncalled for:

    you find most of the Linux...

    Colorblind

    I'd like to add my complaint to the list. Those graphs are useless. I am red-green colorblind, so I frequently can't distinguish red from green, and I certainly can't tell green from green. Please...

    Well, I'm not much of a graphical tool kind of guy, so I really didn't think to look for anything outside of ObConf. And from what I can tell, there's no way to setup <keybind> from ObConf. Since I...

    Just my luck

    Last week I decided to convert my entire setup over to Openbox because Fluxbox hadn't had a release in over 2 years. I never used any of the Fluxbox-only features anyway and the only reason I stuck...
  20. Wow.

    I tried UNR 10.04 on my Eee PC on the day it was released, but thought it was too bloated for my the Eee's limited hardware, and I wasn't using most of the features anyway. So I decided to...
