nvidia's cross-platform and Intel's linux drivers are out immediately and generally good as expected.

amd's pre-beta driver still hasn't passed the conformance tests, is windows only, has no directx support on windows and is generally crappy as expected.

if he were competent there would just be release to release binary compatibility and drivers would just work, even across distros

That card is a really odd duck and I had the same issue with mine. I ended up having to drop into the console and install the nvidia driver that way. Works fine after that, and it's a lovely solution I know.

Every other nvidia card I have thrown at Fedora works fine, all the way up to the 980, but the 750 just doesn't like the open source driver. :shrug:

I was about to just give up, but I guess I'll try installing a real nvidia driver.

Sep 14, 2003



Yeah, I was thinking of getting a better card because I'm beginning to realize this one sucks.

I was able to get the NVidia driver installed in single user mode after following a guide, but it crashes on power down or reboot now and also crashed when I tried to install Chrome.

I'm giving up for the night, might try my luck with something else tomorrow.

Odd, I haven't had those issues with my 750. Have you ran dnf update?

yep. I don't think the other issues are related to the card. I couldn't reboot with "reboot" in single user mode either.

???? OSX and iOS have MAC its just that iOS enables it and it's administered by apple mostly

its what keeps apps sandboxed iirc

e: in fact the issue w/ selinux is the linux part w/ lots of one-eyed people leading around the blind

What is MAC? It's hard to google ios and mac for obv reasons.

the gently caress why wouldn't you handle that with HSTS and use response headers to indicate security policy vs. managing it in HTML documents which seems far more stupid

it's behind the "experimental features" flag in the account preferences, so i'm not too mad.

It's forums that are utter crap, look at how stupid SA is these days. Every single megathread should properly be a newsgroup.

Mailing lists with public archives are basically newsgroups with way shittier tooling and delivery largely thanks to the technical problems presented by spam plus the fact that nobody has tried to do anything to advance/replace Usenet excepting pirates in the last fifteen years.

We cope, but...
