    Flashrom is not meant for noobs. Basically you overwrite everything incl. the mac adresses/serial numbers with defaults. A dos tool like fpt does the same but can be used with -savemac option....

    I really dislike that Ubuntu is keeping xserver 1.15. Debian never packaged glamor as external package therefore the xserver was updated immediately to provide glamor support. But AMD is so stupid to...

    @twriter

    It seems you have got no customers that use xserver 1.16 then, ubuntu is so nice to amd that they keep an outdated external glamor just to let fglrx work. But debian jessie/sid does not,...

    It's fine that mplayer could use vdpau but without xbmc support it is really poor. I really would like to know if the needed feature could be emulated.

    Well performance is one thing, the other is stability. This game crashes really every few minutes... I finished it with iorveth's help, but basically you would have to play it twice. About 40 h with...

    The game is slowly playable at 1680x1080 in a window with fglrx and a HD 5670. A GTX 650 ti is faster on my other box oft course, but what i really hate is how often the game crashes. Somewhere i...

    As long there are ppl who want to use Linux in a self-restricted way this may be useful for those. I see no reason not to provide needed firmware out of the box that all network (especially wifi), 3d...

    I recently tested 3.15.2 and 3.16 rc2/3 with btrfs/lzo. Only 3.16rc3 did not crash... Maybe 3.15.3 is better too, but did not check. lzo compression saved about 10% space with lots oft Steam games...

    Onboard gfx speed depends on RAM timing and gfx clock. My guess is that the fastest xmp profile was used by default and no standard ddr3-1600 timing with OC RAM. I dont think that using just...

    OSS AMD drivers are definitely a good idea in case you used an older card. Fglrx lacks vdpau support and has wierd lags in source enigne games with slower cards.

    @SphinUXer

    A nice way would be a nightly/daily generated iso. We have that for Kanotix since while now and it helps users to install always the lastest code with very few updates the day you dl...

    Impressive howto. The needed patch is already in the official Debian repository. But well, for some noobs ;)

    @bridgman

    Do you think it is reasonable to buy a highend AMD gfx card for Linux gaming? The lastest ones are not even supported by OSS drivers and fglrx you always have to patch. For 3.14 you...

    Sometimes when you upgrade from one driver to the next it is usefull to delete the cache:

    rm -rvf ~/.steam/root/SteamApps/common/Serious\ Sam\ 3/Temp/ShaderCache/

    For me it seems you need fully overpowered cards when you want to play source engine games on Linux. It is impossible for slower cards to use the same settings as you need to have constantly over 100...

    For Kanotix gfxdetect mode it is not allowed to have Intel active. In that case i do not activate fglrx. Certainly i would use something i know that works, if it does not it is a driver fault. From...
