    Isn't using a VCS (Git in this case) for binaries kinda defeating the purpose of a VCS?

    Woohoo, It is working for me. No more Machine Exception Code. It starts automatically in DRI2 mode too. Great.

    I'm pretty sure that the purpose of a VCS is to track different versions of files.

    Define "track." It's not as if you can make any sense out of a "diff -Nau binary_blob_1 binary_blob_2" unless your brain can interpret machine code.

    I think that large files with slightly changed segments between versions could share portions in the .git objects storage.

    Quoting Linus:

    «git is not an SCM. it's a filesystem designed to _host_ an SCM»

    «In many ways you can just see git as a filesystem — it's content-addressable, and it has a notion of versioning, but I really really designed it coming at the problem from the viewpoint of a filesystem person (hey, kernels is what I do), and I actually have absolutely zero interest in creating a traditional SCM system.»

    Stupid 1-minute-to-edit.
