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.

New Arduino boards include first FPGA model

Arduino launched a “MKR Vidor 4000” board with a SAMA21 MCU and Cyclone 10 FPGA, as well as an “Uno WiFi Rev 2” with an ATmega4809 MCU. Both boards have a crypto chip and ESP32-based WiFi module. In conjunction with this weekend’s Maker Faire Bay Area, Arduino launched two Arduino boards that are due to ship at the end of June. The MKR Vidor 4000 is the first Arduino board equipped with an field programmable . The Intel Cyclone 10 FPGA. will be supported with programming libraries and a new visual editor. The Arduino Uno WiFi Rev 2, meanwhile, revises the Arduino Uno WiFi with a new Microchip ATmega4809 MCU. It also advances to an ESP32-based u-blox NINA-W102 WiFi module, which is also found on the Vidor 4000. Read more

DragonFlyBSD 5.3 Works Towards Performance Improvements

Given that DragonFlyBSD recently landed some SMP performance improvements and other performance optimizations in its kernel for 5.3-DEVELOPMENT but as well finished tidying up its Spectre mitigation, this weekend I spent some time running some benchmarks on DragonFlyBSD 5.2 and 5.3-DEVELOPMENT to see how the performance has shifted for an Intel Xeon system.
