    I think the headline here is far overblown.

    I was never expecting a whole lot beyond being a decent HTPC and maybe playing some Mario clones.

    This is great news!

    I wonder if there's any chance of their binary blob also coming to support VDPAU?

    Will it be automatic, or do you have to do something to get your Tux?

    A sale is nice and all, but I'm hoping for DOTA 2 or Super Monday Night Combat or something similar to land soon. Not that I...
  4. One question only...

    Can this thing play 720p or 1080p smoothly over HDMI with Ubuntu/other distro of choice?

    If so, I am probably going to get one of these things now that I know it can have a real OS installed and...

    I think it's heartening how much improvement there's been.

    On the other hand, basing feature support on a process name is likely something that you can never really live down.

    I just got a 7770 not too long ago. Mine's an XFX.

    On mine it works fine with a couple caveats.

    Turn off the monitor auto off thing. There's a bug in mint that makes the cpu go crazy when the...

    Yes, and there aren't even screen-shots to compare what the different settings look like?

    There's no way a 'look' at Anti-Aliasing performance is meaningful without examining the actual visual...

    Setting screen to turn off never in Brightness and Lock CP seems to be a temp fix for the idle insanity.

    With audio, at least part of my issue seems to be power related -- I get a really big pop...

    Update again:

    I definitely seem to have something causing my CPU to go crazy the second the monitor switches off from idle.

    So I tried the two methods of controlling speaker pop I came across.

    First I tried disabling automute in alsamixer. That seemed to increase volume levels while make the pop less audible, but it...

    Update: Case top audio jack also has the intermittent speaker stack/click blip.

    I meant I needed the PPA for mplayer support, not VA-API, sorry if that was unclear.

    Am trying the watermark fix. Will reboot in a sec and see if it worked.

    *Update*

    Watermark fix worked!...

    Problems with configuration

    Without a doubt I think the number one problem for many things Linux is one of configuration and software/hardware -- for anything from PostgreSQL to MySQL to SSD tuning mdadm formatting, the...

    Hmm. So I decided to go ahead and put together a similar system and see what happens.

    It also looks like I'll get to find out just how terrible a (lower?) mid-range radeon is.
