Awesome (4/7)



  1. I was already thinking about the need of a lawsuit. :lol:
  2. As long as they keep a free downloadable version of Mandrakelinux and offer free updates (not only security related) it's ok. Although Gentoo is my main OS now, I was planning to download Mandrakelinux 10.2 and see what's new. I guess I'll download 2005 Limited Edition instead :lol: .
  3. The random X lockups appeared yesterday for me. It's seems that the only workaround for this is to set the RenderAccel option to "false". Other than that, we can wait for NVIDIA to release a fix or downgrade the drivers.
  4. They run excellent on Gentoo as well.
  5. http://www.shanseifan.com/Famille/05_Murie...xembourg9cu.jpg Let's raise some billions and buy ourselves a law against M$. Now ... on topic. Let's say the retards pass that stupid law. If all European software projects are relocated to servers in Africa, Asia or NON-EU Europe (as AI said) can they continue to function ?
  6. GCC 4.0 is available in Gentoo since February AFAIK but I don't know how stable it is ..... I'd like to know how it works for you. Maybe I'll also take the plunge ;).
  7. Well, you can read the changelogs at kernel.org and find out what's different. The nitro patch makes your kernel faster, more responsive, increases performance in games and adds new features. Go to the Gentoo forums and read about all the new features.
  8. .... and of course the nitro patch: :D http://www.sepi.be/nitro/2.6.11-nitro0/pat...6.11-nitro0.bz2 More details here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-302767-start-0.html
  9. I fully agree Cybr. Linux is way better. I've just finished installing Solaris 10 and tested it a little. The first boot was slow but after that, it's as fast as a normal Linux boot ~ 1 minute to the gdm screen. The default desktop is JDS3 which is GNOME + Solaris theme. I still haven't managed to get Sound and Networking going. One surprizing thing is speed. Although it is compiled for i386 it runs quite fast. I don't know if I will keep it ..... only if I get sound and networking going. ...... maybe.
  10. There was a bug in Vyqchat it seems. I wasn't able to compile it the usual way but it 'emerge vyqchat' did the trick. I'll stick with Vypress/Vyqchat for now ....
  11. I know about it but I can't get it to compile ..... it complains about qt libraries but I have qt installed. Anyway googling for chat software I found Akeni (www.akeni.com). It looks very promising but unfortunately it's not quite free. Does anybody know of an open-source or other free alternative to it ?
  12. The title says it all. I'd like something like BORGChat or Vypress chat (at least).
  13. The debate is getting hot ..... LILO vs Grub .... let's use NTLoader instead .
  14. LILO cuz I use Reiser4 and I really understand this bootloader :D and I'm too lazy to learn Grub. :P Yes ... there would be one more argument ... I don't like the way Grub sounds ... LILO is more pleasant to the ear . Paul, please give me some hints on how to make LILO look cool. I'd also need some nice themes for it.
  15. Most of the machines run XP. Yeah ... I'm an eye candy lover as well, that's why I hate LinNeighbourhood's look. Can I get iFolder for free ? :D
