00:27--- ---> Newsome [] has joined #linode
00:36@caker I think I decided on a notebook finally .. IBM T42p
00:37@caker 15" 1600x1200 display, 1.8Ghz Pentium M, 1GB RAM, etc.. screen rez is probably most important to me
00:37roast-guinea-| get one with 64M RAM and play around with it for a little while :P
00:39Newsome caker, what video card?
00:40@caker Newsome: 128MB ATI Mobility FIREGL
00:41Newsome do you care about 3D acceleration?
00:41@caker kinda
00:41--- Netsplit <-> quits: Jeremy
00:42@caker ATI Mobility FireGL T2, is what it is actually
00:42Newsome I haven't been very impressed with ATI's Linux drivers.
00:43Newsome My last two laptops have had Nvidia cards, and they've worked great.
00:43Newsome My current one has an ATI, and I've never succeeded in getting acceleration working.
00:44@caker not impressed by their drivers how? 3D performance? 2D quality?
00:44@caker ahh
00:44Newsome stability issues
00:44@caker damn
00:44@caker How do the binary drivers come into play with custom kernels?
00:45Newsome ATI just (a couple days ago) released drivers that will work with Xorg. They've had XFree86 drivers for a while, but...
00:45Newsome ATI's are similar to NVidia's
00:46Newsome ATI stores stuff in /lib/modules/fglrx
00:47Newsome There's a script "" that you run, and it compiles up the module for the currently-running kernel
00:48Newsome then you install it.
00:48@caker interesting
00:49@caker POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D apps
00:49Newsome I'd have to say that the NVidia proprietary drivers are more stable and usable than the ATI proprietary drivers
00:51Newsome ATI's most recent drivers _do_ actually run in accelerated mode on recent kernels, so they are obviously making some progress.
00:52Newsome As far as 2-D performance and stability goes, I really have no complaints.
00:52@caker cool
00:53@caker If I get this thing, I need to figure out how to get my Microsoft refund

20:10adamg 800mhz 512ram
20:10dataw0lf You shouldn't have any problems with Ubuntu on that.
20:10dataw0lf which is the best desktop distro, imho.
20:11adamg havnt run x in years, so gotta be easy to set-up, cant be arsed with fecking around
20:11dataw0lf incredibly easy to setup.
20:12adamg wwhat is it based around?
20:13dataw0lf Debian.
20:13dataw0lf it's #7 on distrowatch and it's been out for just a handful of months.
20:14schweeb yes, officially released for like 4 months

20:57mikegrb 20:51:57 topping | 1280x1024 is minimum to get any work done these days
20:57mikegrb ^-- defending his 1280x1024 minimum screen res for his website
21:03--- ---> sighup [] has joined #linode
21:03--- Channel: mode/#linode [+o sighup] by ChanServ
21:05schweeb mikegrb: sure, most people are using 1280x1024+, but that doesn't mean their browser window will be open that large
21:05mikegrb schweeb: indeed
21:06tierra|w actually, most are using 1024x768 I thought
21:07tierra|w it gets more confusing with everyone getting these widescreen laptops
21:07schweeb it'd be hard to find a regular size laptop with less than a 1400x1050 display
21:08schweeb and desktops, most people are buying 17" or 19" monitors... or flat panels... all of which are probably set at 1280x1024+ by default
21:08tierra|w my laptop can only do 1024x768 (14") ... I wanted that XSVGA screen, but it was just barely out of my budget
21:09tierra|w default windows install jumps to 1024x768 I though...
21:09mikegrb schweeb: I have 1024x769
21:09mikegrb er 768
21:09tierra|w every website statistics page I've seen that included screen res showed most people at 1024x768
21:10schweeb I've been using 1280x1024 since like 1994, heh
21:10tierra|w given I'm at 1600x1200 right now, and have a hard time dealing with 1024x768, but that is what most people are at
21:10mikegrb heh my desktop is much larger
21:10mikegrb two 17" and going to add a 15" soon, need to find a cheap non-3d pci video card
21:11schweeb my laptop does 1400x1050 (didn't have the money to get the 1600x1200)
21:11schweeb and I have 2 17's at 1600x1200 on my work desktop
21:11schweeb desktop_size++
21:12tierra|w it's pretty rare to see 17" monitors that can hit 1600x1200 actually... or maybe I'm just behind the times
21:12tierra|w err... no, I'm thinking of a higher resolution
21:12schweeb if I had a desk big enough at home, my home desktop would have 2 19"s and a 17", the 19"s at 1900x1200 and the 17" at 1600x1200
21:13tierra|w since I had a 17" that could pull off 1900x1400 or something close to that
21:13schweeb well, before shadow mask/aperture grille were popular, not many 17" monitors did above 1280x1024
21:14FesterCouples| sighup seen caker
