Supergamer2 ISO Available

Filed under
Linux

Darin has written to announce an updated Supergamer iso. If you'll recall, Supergamer is a wonderful system based on PCLOS that offers immeasurable gaming pleasure at the mere boot of a cd.

He states,

we have an updated iso done with the addition of postal 2 to the line up...I updated the nvidia drivers some and the ldetect to allow 7 series cards to be selected....I also have a version that is a total desktop solution for older hardware (2-3 years old) and at least a gforce4 card to run the big 3d games....also I am forcing dma mode on the dvd to increase some response time....a slight increase but every speed increase helps..this increase only happens running live though as I did not increase the bootup time.....

The download torrent file can be found HERE, or Direct Torrent Download.

Don't forget to visit the wonderful Supergamer Forum for any questions, comments, suggestions, or to help out others.

SuperGamer WebSite

Masta in the PCLInuxOS Forums noticed that SuperGamer has its own little Web-Site now: SuperGamer

So it looks like the SuperGamer Project will be around for a quite while now that they have started their own little website. I am sure that there will be lots of people participating who use Darin's SuperGamer DVD.

Heads up.

re: SuperGamer WebSite

Oh cool. Thanks for the pointer.

you can skip the torrent and get a disc at http://on-disk.com/product_info.php/products_id/193

$1.80 from each disc we ship is going to support further SuperGamer Development.

SuperGamer-2 Nvidia video problems

Does anybody succeed to start it with Nvidia based videocard and Nvidia Driver? I was unable - SuperGamer-2 won't work with Geforce 7900GS (MP, referent Nvidia 7900GS, Gigabyte), Asus 6800GT (PCI-E), Axle 6600GT (AGP), Gigabyte 5700 Ultra (AGP). I am tired and will not try to test Geforce 2, 4 MX, 4600 (4 TI) or even Riva TNT2 and Riva 128ZX Smile

re: SuperGamer-2 & Nvidia

Yeah, it booted fine here with a 6800, albeit 1024x768. I could adjust that too btw.

What sort of problem are you having exactly? What happens?

I have some problems with

I have some problems with this site.
Anyway, I can't boot SuperGamer-2 with Nvidia Driver enabled, only with frame buffer... This is weird, because I am able to boot SuperGamer-1, except with MP 7900GS...

re: problems supergamer nvidia

Well, I can't even venture a guess with such sketchy info. Might I suggest you collect your thoughts and then post a detailed question at the supergamer forum? They will need some hardware details and what exactly happens. But they'd be able to help you much faster. In fact, there is an extensive archive of q & a at the old forum as well. You might search there and perhaps come up with some ideas. Sorry I can't be more help.

Ok, no problem

Ok, no problem, sorry to bother you. BTW, what exactly do you understand as "sketchy info"?! Isn't enough? I think it is more than enough - nothing happend, except that Nvidia drivers for some reason won't activate, so X starts with default driver - without D3D & OpenGL support - only clean frame buffer, VESA driver.

re: Ok, no problem

Oh, no bother. I just know I'd be stabbin in the dark here and they could probably fix you right up there, seeings they work with it everyday.

New SG is now based on VL (not PCLOS)

Just so you (srlinuxx) know and every one reading this is aware that the latest re-incarnation of SuperGamer has for quite a while now been based on VectorLinux and is called by the name of "Big Mamma" SuperVL. I believe that there is still some support in their forums for the previous SuperGamer2-PCLinuxOS. But I believe that all future development of SuperGamer will be based on VectorLinux.

Check it all out here http://www.supergamer.org

Finally FYI the "the old forum" at the PCLinuxOS forums (your reply 01/03/2007) has been discontinued (again for quite a while now) you may care to amend your statement above ?

The only SuperGamer forums that I know of are at their own site.

The 32-Bit Packages That Will Continue To Be Supported Through Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Earlier this year Canonical announced they would be pulling 32-bit support from Ubuntu ahead of next year's 20.04 LTS. But following public backlash, they stepped back to provide 32-bit support for select packages. Today they announced the 199 32-bit packages that will continue to be supported through Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Based upon popularity when looking at i386 packages that are not x86_64 (AMD64) packaged as well as feedback from their customers/partners, they have come up with a list of the 32-bit packages they will continue to support. Their list is 52 packages but with dependencies comes out to about 199 packages in the i386 realm they will continue to support.

AMD EPYC 7302 / 7402 / 7502 / 7742 Linux Performance Benchmarks

Last month we provided launch-day benchmarks of the AMD EPYC 7502 and 7742 under Linux in both 1P and 2P configurations for these exciting "Rome" Zen 2 server processors. For your viewing pleasure today is a fresh look at not only the EPYC 7502 and 7742 processors under the latest Linux 5.3 kernel but we've also expanded it to looking at the EPYC 7302 and EPYC 7402 processors as well with those processors recently being sent over by AMD. Under Ubuntu 19.04 with Linux 5.3, these four different AMD EPYC 7002 series SKUs were benchmarked along with some of the older AMD Naples processors and Intel Xeon Gold/Platinum processors for a fresh look at the Linux server performance.

Mozilla: Media and Truth, Security and More

  • Examining AI’s Effect on Media and Truth

    Today, one of the biggest issues facing the internet — and society — is misinformation. It’s a complicated issue, but this much is certain: The artificial intelligence (AI) powering the internet is complicit. Platforms like YouTube and Facebook recommend and amplify content that will keep us clicking, even if it’s radical or flat out wrong. Earlier this year, Mozilla called for art and advocacy projects that illuminate the role AI plays in spreading misinformation. And today, we’re announcing the winners: Eight projects that highlight how AI like machine learning impacts our understanding of the truth.

  • Mozilla Open Policy & Advocacy Blog: Governments should work to strengthen online security, not undermine it

    On Friday, Mozilla filed comments in a case brought by Privacy International in the European Court of Human Rights involving government “computer network exploitation” (“CNE”)—or, as it is more colloquially known, government hacking. While the case focuses on the direct privacy and freedom of expression implications of UK government hacking, Mozilla intervened in order to showcase the further, downstream risks to users and internet security inherent in state CNE. Our submission highlights the security and related privacy threats from government stockpiling and use of technology vulnerabilities and exploits. Government CNE relies on the secret discovery or introduction of vulnerabilities—i.e., bugs in software, computers, networks, or other systems that create security weaknesses. “Exploits” are then built on top of the vulnerabilities. These exploits are essentially tools that take advantage of vulnerabilities in order to overcome the security of the software, hardware, or system for purposes of information gathering or disruption. When such vulnerabilities are kept secret, they can’t be patched by companies, and the products containing the vulnerabilities continue to be distributed, leaving people at risk. The problem arises because no one—including government—can perfectly secure information about a vulnerability. Vulnerabilities can be and are independently discovered by third parties and inadvertently leaked or stolen from government.

  • Time for some project updates

    I’m going to begin with some of the less-loved things I’ve been working on, partially in an attempt to motivate some forward-motion on things that I believe are rather important to Mozilla.
