Fedora Core 5, nVidia drivers, and circus hoops

March 24th, 2006

As of now, to get nVidia drivers working on FC5, you have to jump through hoops. This has partly to do with the FC5 kernel and partly to do with the driver. Sadly enough, when I reported this in FC5t3, the developers closed it with a NOTABUG (nVidia’s problem).

Here are the hoops you need to […]

Kororaa Xgl Live CD

March 16th, 2006

The latest linux buzz is Xgl, a new graphics subsystem which Novell is pushing, with uber-awesome graphical desktop effects. I decided to try out Kororaa, a Gentoo-based live-CD distribution which runs Xgl.

Adobe Reader 7 for the impatient

March 16th, 2005

It isn’t official yet but you can get Reader 7 via Adobe’s ftp server.

If you can’t afford CrossOver Office ‘cos are out of cash buying gifts - what with the festive season and all - here’s a tip […]

Qt 4 Beta 1

December 22nd, 2004

The wise men at Trolltech have released the first beta of Qt 4, the next major revision of their development framework. The Dot has the details.

KDE changes major version number when Qt does, for obvious reasons. Since Qt 4 has been somewhat delayed, we won’t be getting a KDE 4 anytime soon either. But instead […]
