Signed up for the webcast of an OSCON talk today. When I registered I noticed a littel link in the corner that said, “Test Your System”. So I did. The results are below.It struck me as a tad ironic that Fedora 19 is viewed as an OS that fails the test to view content from […]
I’ve got a desktop that I use as my primary work machine. It runs Fedora 18 and drives 2 monitors via an old but serviceable GeForce card. Unfortunately what that means is I’ve got to live in a world of crappy compromises. It took me quite a while just to get things working. I started […]
