[SOLVED] PlayOnLinux Game Launches in full screen with GNOME panel at end of screen
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 16, 2011
I installed a game in POL for my niece in Linux Mint 11 (the game ran perfectly in full screen). I have since downgraded to Ubuntu 10.04. I use manual partitions so all my settings remain in the home directory. I went to launch Sims 3 in POL and it runs in full screen alright but the GNOME panel appears at the end of the screen.
I did go to Wine config and selected 'Emulate a virtual desktop' and then tried to launch the game via
~/.PlayOnLinux but it wont launch that way.
Can someone help me solve this? At least could someone tell me how to launch it in a window?

End of Popular Games for Older hardware with newer Precise
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 14, 2012
Older popular 3d games like Neverputt, Neverball GL Billiards, Brutal chess and the likes which worked on older Celeron boards with ATI Rage Pro 128's with the Precise alpha 3.2.0-12 kernel can no longer be excpected to work at all with beta1 +. The newer features of Ubuntu Precise and made it practically impossible for those older popular games to run at all. Although Unity 2d and other Unity features work really swell, the 3d games appear to be gone for good unless a processor or video adapter upgrade is part of the new hardware build.
So anyone trying to restore older PCs may find a very limited amount of success.

Sexing up linux with "unclear" spin re: "Old Computer, New Life"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 16, 2011
I am having a bad day with my empathetic premenstral condition, perceived head ache, suspected bloating and all...
And I am feeling a little bit antagonistic about sexed up "blanket statements" as one of the Linux myths and legends gets rehashed.
It's this one.
"Old Computer, New Life: Restoring Old Hardware With Ubuntu"
Marketing departments want us to believe that PCs, laptops and netbooks become obsolete after a couple of years, but it's not true.
The computer industry has evolved over the years more rapidly than any industry in contemporary history. Year after year engineers have worked valiantly to bring us, the end users, faster and more capable hardware without sacrificing reliability. Programmers and application developers have been equally quick to develop new software that puts to use the new hardware specifications. However, while striving to sell more and more products, marketing departments want us to believe that PCs, laptops and netbooks become

High End System? Performance...
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 16, 2003
Hi there, I'd love to hear from users that have what they consider to be a High End System, running Linux.
I'm interested in all hardware details and obviously Linux version.
I've tried a few different distrobutions and hardware setups, but don't seem to be able to find anywhere near the performance of my Win2K machine, which is VERY slow compared to 9*/NT
I've had a RH7 server running now for a couple of years, it does what I aks, but as a workstation, for surfing, watching movie clips, and dare I say it, playing a game or two, forget it.
I've posted similar posts to this before, but right now, I feel as though all that is really prevening me from dumping Win, is to find a Linux setup that meets my desktop performance requirements.
All comments are appreciated...
[SOLVED] SDL code optimisation / change of library for low end systems.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 23, 2011
I have a question about choice of library to be used on low-end systems.
I've so far been using SDL to create a user interface for a media system, and it's been working fantastically on my development machine, a dual core 2GHz machine with 2Gb RAM and an Intel graphics card. I get a frame rate of up to 100fps, and there is no slowdown at all. However when I run the exact same program on an embedded motherboard, the VIA EPIA EN15000G, which has a 1.5GHz processor, and a VIA P4M800 graphics chip (possibly the worst graphics chip ever invented as far as Linux support goes), I get a frame rate of less than 5fps. This makes the entire program totally unusable, and I've been left in a bit of a pickle. I've looked into alternatives like SFML, but that looks like it won't help at all on an unaccelerated system. I've also tried using OpenChrome drivers on it, and that made a negligible or nonexistent difference.
Can anybody suggest anything I could look into re: optimising my code or
SUCCESS STORY: "Error loading Operating System" at end of BIOS bootup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 6, 2004
I just posted this to my company's internal knowledge base.. I thought I would pass it on to you folks in case you have this issue.
I had to google hard, high and low until my head hurt to find the answer, so I wanted to also make it easier for me to find the solution again by also submitting it to here
FYI this applies to all OS's, including WindowsXP *ducking*
"Error loading operating system" at BIOS bootup screen (WinXP, Linux, Unix)
I think I nuked the boot sector of the HD, or maybe the HD crashed... This applies to WinXP, Linux, Unix, all OS's.

I tried installing WinXP again, fixmbr, restore consolr, etc etc.. even installed Debian, FreeBSD, SuSE, made it all FAT32, nuked it, made NTFS, made it reiser,ext2, ext3 everything, NOTHING worked, I kept getting "error loading operating system" no matter what OS I "successf
Unable to get Java running on my redhat box.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 25, 2006
Recently a very kind friend of mine was nice enough to hand over a dv to me (dedicated virtual server). Seeing as how this has a good amount of bandwidth and I am provided with ssh access I decided to setup a blog based on blojsom This means that I would need to install java, tomcat, mod_jk and blojsom itself...
The only thing is that this box is running Red Hat which is not exactly the debian/ubuntu flavor that I'm used to. I did install apt and configured some repositories to try and get it feeling a little more like debian, but rpm sure isn't dpkg despite the similarities.
For a while I mulled around trying to decide what the best method of getting java on this box wold be. First I tried looking for the JDK on DAG Wieers repos, no luck. So I moved on to the fresh rpms repos, still no luck on a JDK rpm. In my searching I stumbled across the jpackage repositories, took a look around, and realized I understood very little of what they where trying to explain and went straight
