  1. aRTee, you are one of the lucky people I guess. For now, both my old Panasonic and Pioneer DVD-Rom drives would only read DVD-Rom and DVD-R, but not DVD+R. So the bitsetting feature is a life-saver in my case. I am going to burn the SuSE 9.2 DVD ISO tomorrow and will report how bitsetting performs under Linux. Hopefully it will be as good as on Windows.
  2. Seems like it is a bug which is fixed in the latest version of K3b, according to aRTee's Mandrake 10.1 review: One of the star applications of KDE, K3B, is even greater than before (and they fixed a bug that wouldn't let dvd+r's get burnt at the highest possible speed the drive and media combination was capable of). I know it actually says the selected burn speed doesn't matter when burning dvds, but it sure does. Thanks aRTee for reporting this bug.
  3. Finally with some update. The latest firmware for my Lite-On drive has enabled the bitsetting feature. Thumbs up to Lite-On for their commitment to customers. I have tried it on Windows, and it works! With bitsetting (change booktype) to DVD-Rom, even many older DVD-Rom drives can read DVD+R now. I'll test if it works on Linux in a moment after I fix my kernel panic problem (or maybe after a re-installation) mentioned in another thread.
  4. I think bitsetting (to DVD-Rom) is required in order for older drives to read DVD+R. I just tried to burn a Mandrake 10.1 DVD ISO with bitsetting enabled and it is now readable in my old Panasonic DVD-Rom drive, which was unable to read any DVD+R before.
  5. Booting the Mandrake 10 CD and entering the 'rescue' command, I tried to restore the LILO after installing Win2k3 Evaluation edition. This time, however I was met with the Kernel panic message like this: resuming from /dev/hda5 Resuming from device hda5 Kernel panic: Resume Machine unable to find supended-data signature ( - misspelled ? This worked in the past for Mandrake 9.2 so I wonder if anyone has encountered this problem or know how to solve it. Thanks.

  7. Those who are old enough should remember this 2D side-scroller game, the game that made Nintendo famous and accompanied many kids to grow up in their youth: Now it comes back in an open source favor: Super Mario Clone FX http://smclone.arturh.com/ http://sourceforge.net/projects/smclone/
  8. Great interview. Will Ryan take any other volunteer programmers as apprentice? I wonder how he could manage to deal with so many paid and unpaid projects at the same time...
  9. Take a look at this discussion, which might help you: 1. DVD+R burning under Linux? http://mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=14376 Other relevant information: 2.

    Cinelerra Install?

    The rpm of Cinelerra from PLF (version 1.1.8) is broken. I think you need to obtain it from other sources.

    Starting FireFox 10

    I use the official gtk2+xft tarball package from Mozilla.org, works great here.
  13. I thought the 'chkfontpath' tool is bundled with XFree86 4.x.

    True Combat Elite

    I think Counterstrike deserves a Linux client. For one, Linux deployment at internet cafe and nightclub will be boosted by the availability of many FPS and MMORPGs to the platform.
  15. The weird thing is the latest nVidia driver provides a very nice 15-40% performance improvement on GeForce 5 or 6 series. So, it could be a driver issue here.
  16. To Doom III Linux gamers: You can now upgrade to the latest nVidia driver 1.0-6629, which will provide some nice performance improvement. It worths it.
  17. 1.0 final seems more stable than the RC versions.
  18. linuX-gamers.net-How-Tos -> Doom 3 Linux Tweaking Guide http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/wfsect...hp?articleid=54 This guide is very good. You should take a look if you want to have Doom III run faster on Linux.
  19. Some tips to make it run smoother: http://ucguides.savagehelp.com/Doom3/FPSVisuals.htm From a comment at LinuxGames.com: "Make a text file called autoexec.cfg in your Doom3 'Base' directory and add: image_useCache - set to 1 image_cacheMegs - 1/3 -14th system ram image_cacheMinK - minimum cache in K not Meg 2048 com_videoram - make sure this value is the ammount of video ram your card has it won't add FPS, but it will be noticeably smoother. the other commands on that site can help, but don't go overboard otherwise you'll lose some playing experience."
  20. Just completed the demo.... Well the game is really scary, but perhaps the sound has made it more so... I don't think it's bored, but it is not very fun either.... Maybe I will wait for RTCW 2 then.
  21. Why not? Because you are scared of the intense, dark, vivid 3D monsters? :P
  22. Serial ATA (SATA) Linux status report September 30, 2004 http://linux.yyz.us/sata/sata-status.html Update: Status of NCQ in linux? http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/3359 [moved from Hardware by spinynorman]
  23. General consumer acceptance is harder, but corporate and developer acceptance is already there: http://lwn.net/Articles/104259/ Yes, piracy crackdown initiated by BSA will only further the trend to move away to Linux, especially in China.
  24. Haven't got around to play all the levels of UT2003 yet..... Do you think UT2004 is much better than UT2003?

    Medal of Honor Beta 1

    > mohaa isn't final yet, spearhead will be out after mohaa is final. EA never gave > icculus the breakthrough source so that is not likely to be released for linux. Hope EA will change their mind about Breakthrough because I want to get a box set of 3 games bundled together, once all the Linux clients are final.
