    Accelerated Xinerama

    4:08pm by rudeboy in category: Linux

    I finally got around to installing my GeForce 6600 GT this weekend. Installing mesa and the nvidia drivers was actually a lot easier than I remembered it from my original geforce-on-linux days. I’m not much of a PC gamer anymore, but I didn’t waste much time in tracking down the demos for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Doom 3. Not flawless, but more than I expected with the sorry state of closed graphics drivers on linux. Nvidia is set to release a new driver at the end of this month that is rumored to be a large improvement over the current 7676 drivers. We’ll see.

    Command & Conquer: Renegade still won’t run on wine proper, nor a cvs checkout of winex. I’m all but convinced that TransGaming purposefully cripples their cvs tree to intice people to pay for a subscription to the pre-packaged version (which actually works). Who knows, maybe I’ll pay my tithe and pick up a copy some day since several people tell me the few pc games I still play work perfectly on it. Anyone care to loan me a copy?

    "How is a military drilled and trained to defend freedom, peace and happiness? This is what Major General O'Ryan has to say of an efficiently trained generation: 'The soldier must be so trained that he becomes a mere automoton; he must be so trained that it will destroy his initiative; he must be so trained that he is turned into a machine. The soldier must be forced into the military noose; he must be jacked up; he must be ruled by his superiors with pistol in hand.' This was not said by a Prussian Junker; not by a German barbarian . . . but by an American major general. And he is right. You cannot conduct war with equals; you cannot have militarism with free born men; you must have slaves, automotons, machines, obedient disciplined creatures, who will move, act, shoot and kill at the command of their superiors. That is preparedness, and nothing else." -Emma Goldman, Preparedness: The Road to Universal Slaughter
