      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

My desktop regularly goes black while I am in X. It than goes back to the login screen. Here is the log:

If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is

newer than the above date, look for a newer version before

reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

Sorry, :oops: yes I did.


Strangest thing. Finnished Wolfestein again (4th time) and the thing never crashed. Working on Open Office or surfing on Mozilla than X has been going buggy for the past two weeks or so.


Installed Nvidia's 3123 drivers (rebuilding the .src).
