blackorca: switching my clocksource to jiffies gives me a solid 63 FPS (that's the cap in doom 3)
Kano: hi michaellarabel , does cf work now in amdcccle?
michaellarabel: It should
Kano: can you take a screenshot
Kano: the old instructions do not work with 2x 4870 on a dual xeon nehalem
superdump: i thought maybe you guys would know the answer to this...
superdump: i have a gigabyte ex58-ud3r and core i7 920
superdump: running xubuntu 9.04
superdump: just trying to get the temperature from the sensors in the cpu
superdump: hdd temps have come through just fine
superdump: i have lm sensors installed
Kano: nice hardware
Kano: did you run sensors-detect
superdump: i did just now and it seems not to detect the sensors
superdump: i had them working just fine in debian, but i don't remember doing anything special
Kano: kernel too old then
superdump: guess so
superdump: .28 i think
Kano: superdump: try karmic if you need xubuntu
superdump: i had ubuntu on here last week and i updated that to karmic
Kano: but why do you have got .28 then?
superdump: a bunch of packages broke (apturl was having issues, but some others too)
superdump: and then i decided to install xubuntu
superdump: apps were regularly crashing in ubuntu karmic x86_64
superdump: so i'm inclined to stick with jaunty for the time being
superdump: thanks though
Kano: superdump: why didnt you use a daily iso?
superdump: Kano: i didn't originally plan to try out karmic
superdump: Kano: works fine in karmic ;)
superdump: cupsd crashed, but what the hell, i don't have a printer connected to this machine
Kano: i could give you kanotix with .31 kernel too ;)
Kano: but kde 3.5 not xfce
Azerthoth: freinds dont let friends buntu
superdump: meh, i quite like it
Azerthoth: although I admit I do go into #ubuntu now and again for comedy relief
superdump: a while back i used to use gentoo, but then somewhere along the way i couldn't be bothered with it anymore
superdump: suse and fedora never impressed me so i've been using debian or some 'variant' since
Azerthoth: thats what they make Sabayon for, gentoo minus a whole lot of fiddling
superdump: but sabayon bundles everything including your mum and the kitchen sink
superdump: or it did last time i checked
Azerthoth: look at new corecd, drops you off basically at the end of a stage3, but still get the use of the binary packages
Azerthoth: although I do have to admit I am a bit biased
superdump: aren't we all?
bkero: uses binary packages with gentoo.
