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.

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.

Linux company SUSE outbids competitors for fast-growing start-up Rancher Labs

  • Linux company SUSE outbids competitors for fast-growing start-up Rancher Labs

    SUSE, a Linux distribution company controlled by private equity firm EQT, has agreed to acquire Rancher Labs, a start-up with technology that helps organizations run software in virtual containers across many servers. The companies announced the deal Wednesday but didn't disclose the terms. Two people familiar with the deal said SUSE is paying $600 million to $700 million. The transaction suggests that even during a recession, demand remains high for technology that can enable companies to operate more efficiently. Talks between the companies began in the spring, and the process became competitive with additional bids, Ursheet Parikh, a partner at Rancher backer Mayfield Fund, told CNBC on Tuesday. There were "lots of Zoom calls," Parikh said. In the past few years, with the rise of start-ups such as Docker, containers became a trendy alternative to more traditional virtualization technology for running applications on each computer server in a company data center. Amazon, Microsoft and other cloud providers came out with services that developers can use to place code in containers, and in 2017 SUSE introduced its own service for managing containers. The companies haven't finalized integration plans as the deal still faces regulatory approval.
