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.

Fedora: Fedora Workstation and Fedora Council

  • Looking back at Fedora Workstation so far
    So I have over the last few years blogged regularly about upcoming features in Fedora Workstation. Well I thought as we putting the finishing touches on Fedora Workstation 27 I should try to look back at everything we have achieved since Fedora Workstation was launched with Fedora 21. The efforts I highlight here are efforts where we have done significant or most development. There are of course a lot of other big changes that has happened over the last few years by the wider community that we leveraged and offer in Fedora Workstation, examples here include things like Meson and Rust. This post is not about those, but that said I do want to write a post just talking about the achievements of the wider community at some point, because they are very important and crucial too. And along the same line this post will not be speaking about the large number of improvements and bugfixes that we contributed to a long list of projects, like to GNOME itself. This blog is about taking stock and taking some pride in what we achieved so far and major hurdles we past on our way to improving the Linux desktop experience.
  • Resigning from Fedora Council for Fedora 27
    Since I became a Fedora contributor in August 2015, I’ve spent a lot of time in the community. One of the great things about a big community like Fedora is that there are several different things to try out. I’ve always tried to do the most help in Fedora with my contributions. I prefer to make long-term, in-depth contributions than short-term, “quick fix”-style work. However, like many others, Fedora is a project I contribute to in my free time. Over the last month, I’ve come to a difficult realization.

KDE Events: Akademy 2017 and KDE Edu Sprint

  • Hey Mycroft, Drive Me to our Goals!
    Almost three months after Akademy 2017, I finally found the time to write a blog post about how I experienced it. Akademy is where I learn again about all the amazing things happening in our community, where I connect the dots and see the big picture of where all the effort in the various projects together can lead. And of course, I meet all the wonderful people, all the individual reasons why being in KDE is so amazing. This year was no different. Some people voiced their concern during the event that those who are not at Akademy and see only pictures of it on social media might get the feeling that it is mostly about hanging out on the beach and drinking beer, instead of actually being productive. Everyone who was ever at Akademy of course knows this impression couldn’t be further from the truth, but I’ll still take it as a reason to not talk about any of the things that were “just” fun, and focus instead on those that were both fun and productive.

Software: Narabu, ucaresystem, Telegram Messenger

  • Introducing Narabu, part 2: Meet the GPU
    Narabu is a new intraframe video codec. You may or may not want to read part 1 first. The GPU, despite being extremely more flexible than it was fifteen years ago, is still a very different beast from your CPU, and not all problems map well to it performance-wise. Thus, before designing a codec, it's useful to know what our platform looks like.

    Since Ubuntu 17.10 has just been released, I have added new feature to the ucaresystem Core that can be used by the user to upgrade his distribution to the next stable version or optionally to the next development version of Ubuntu. For those who are not familiar with the ucaresystem app it is an automation script that automatically and without asking for your intervention performs some crucial Ubuntu maintenance processes, which otherwise would be done one by one and pressing Y / N each time.
