Re: EMGD Xorg and Linux.

I'm no expert in this at all, but i know on PowerPC macs with radeon graphics cards, I get an error from Xorg about the (in this case, radeon r100 - r300 series) card not having a VGA Bios - as in this case, the code on the card's ROM is built for OpenFirmware. The radeon drivers are more tolerant t...

Re: Joggler Ubuntu 14.04.05 EMGD + Kernel 4.4.121

This is a great OS release - unlike the Buzz! build, i can get Kodi 17.6 running on it by adding their PPA :) And anyone who downloads it can just run fsck on the image before writing it. However, the main issue for me is that the screen is on all the time and doesn't power down, also i have to manu...
