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.

The Linux Kernel Is Still Rectifying The Year 2038 Problem

The Linux kernel is still working to rectify the Year 2038 problem whereby the time values stored as signed 32-bit integers will wrap around. If you somehow are not familiar with the Year 2038 "Y2038" problem, you can learn more via Wikipedia. The Linux kernel has been receiving fixes and workarounds for years now through many Y2038 commits to work through the many different areas of the kernel that are relying upon 32-bit signed ints for storing time values. With Linux 4.15, this work has continued. Read more

KDE Student Programs is pleased to announce the 2018 Season of KDE for those who want to participate in mentored projects that enhance KDE in some way. Every year since 2013, KDE Student Programs has been running Season of KDE as a program similar to, but not quite the same as Google Summer of Code, offering an opportunity to everyone (not just students) to participate in both code and non-code projects that benefits the KDE ecosystem. In the past few years, SoK participants have not only contributed new application features but have also developed the KDE Continuous Integration System, statistical reports for developers, a web framework, ported KDE Applications, created documentation and lots and lots of other work.

How To Get Started With The Ubuntu Linux Distro

The Linux operating system has evolved from a niche audience to widespread popularity since its creation in the mid 1990s, and with good reason. Once upon a time, that installation process was a challenge, even for those who had plenty of experience with such tasks. The modern day Linux, however, has come a very long way. To that end, the installation of most Linux distributions is about as easy as installing an application. If you can install Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop, you can install Linux. Here, we'll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Linux 17.04, which is widely considered one of the most user-friendly distributions. (A distribution is a variation of Linux, and there are hundreds and hundreds to choose from.) Read more
