Kano_live: patched aufs2 into u kernel
Kano_live: now live images work with it
Kano_live: u kernel devs did not want to do that, they preferred to discuss it first if they really need it
Kano_live: i dont like discussions ;)
Ivanovic: is about to order a dell vostro a90
Ivanovic: basically it is identical to the mini9 that was already tested at phoronix
Ivanovic: and for 150€ incl taxes and shipping i can't resist...
Ivanovic: michaellarabel: how was battery lifetime with the inspiron mini 9?
Ivanovic: (yes, the battery is a really tiny one, i know)
Ivanovic: argh, damn it, sold out already...
Kano: michaellarabel: pts a 2 out soon?
Kano: 12 days is a long time...
michaellarabel: Kano: 2nd of June is when PTS 2.0 Alpha 2 will be out
Kano: would you use a1 or 1.8.1 till that day
michaellarabel: me personally? Alpha 1. I almost always use the absolute latest.
Kano: but a1 is old...
Kano: why not create a2 today or tomorrow and on 2nd june then a3
michaellarabel: Kano: What reason do you have for needing an imminent a2 release?
Kano: want to put it onto an iso image with 2.6.30
Kano: then you could live bench .28 vs .30
Kano: well you can of course use git too
Kano: but then it would be preinstalled
Kano: did you add a working way to block tests now
Kano: i need that
Kano: if you call something a2 without that feature it would not help me
Kano: or disable shaders in vdrift
Kano: michaellarabel: whats the status for a blacklisting option
raevol: is pissed about UT3
xcdfgkjhgcv: I bought UT3 a couple of years ago when I heard the Linux client was going to be in the box. I was then told that it will come a short while after the game is released, like ET:QW was.
xcdfgkjhgcv: Why hasn't it been released yet?
xcdfgkjhgcv: Where is my fucking Linux client?
redeeman: in someones ass at epic
redeeman: xcdfgkjhgcv: face it, your money is forfeit
xcdfgkjhgcv: I'm going to fucking blow up Epic Games' HQ.
laga: calls the feds
redeeman: you think they will provide the explosives?
xcdfgkjhgcv: laga: The feds are going to force Epic Games to release the client?
redeeman: xcdfgkjhgcv: but let this be a lesson, don't believe anything until you can get it
xcdfgkjhgcv: redeeman: The amount of games I've pirated has more than offset the money I wasted on the game now. :)
raevol: we should get some black hats to steal the code for us
raevol: open source it
redeeman: that'd be fun
xcdfgkjhgcv: raevol: We can't legally open source it.
raevol: then illegally :P
xcdfgkjhgcv: We can't GPL it or anything.
raevol: we'll use the Bittorrent Public License
xcdfgkjhgcv: raevol: Bittorrent?
xcdfgkjhgcv: raevol: :)
xcdfgkjhgcv: You've just got to love Bittorrent.
raevol: yea serious heh
xcdfgkjhgcv: Once it's uploaded, it's unstoppable!
xcdfgkjhgcv: WTF Quake Live says my browser is incompatible even though I'm using Firefox3!!!
xcdfgkjhgcv: Ahhhh I'm using Linux...
xcdfgkjhgcv: Hold on a second, why would I want to play a game in a browser when I can play a proper game such as OpenArena or Quake III Arena?
xcdfgkjhgcv: I have sound problems with both UT games. :(
xcdfgkjhgcv: Please can someone here send me their script to run UT2004?
xcdfgkjhgcv: I don't have one.
xcdfgkjhgcv: And the game's process remains running after I've ended the game.
xcdfgkjhgcv: Which is annoying because it's using RAM and the OSS is preventing other sounds from running.
maligor: and once you look at it, you become tainted
maligor: it's why I always avoid illegal source code
xcdfgkjhgcv: I'm not interested in illegal source code.
Azerthoth: heya Deanjo, pick on any stallmanites lately?
Deanjo: lol, na, I was brought up not to pick on the "special" people.
Deanjo: Mom always said "just because they ride on the short bus, it doesn't make them any less of a person"
Azerthoth: she's right you know
Azerthoth: it just puts a fine point on their ability to use logic
raevol: ryan gordon says UT3 is still on the way
Azerthoth: good lord, its bad enough that twits use twitter in the first place, tht you have to post 'follow me' crap in an irc channel
raevol: Azerthoth: that's news on the linux UT3
raevol: i don't use twitter
Azerthoth: and this changes my point in what manner?
raevol: it's not "follow me crap"
Azerthoth: twitter == follow me crap
raevol: ok maybe i'm misunderstanding
raevol: regardless, yay UT3
