How to implement poll in linux driver that notices FD closedview story

This driver implements file_operations::poll and I want to make it so that poll(2) would return POLLHUP if the descriptor is closed. Supposed driver client code(userland code) follows. void ThreadA(int fd){ // initialization codes... pfd[0].fd = fd; pfd[0].event = POLLIN; int r = poll(pfd, 1, -1); if(r > 0 && pfd[0].revent (HowTos)

Can't select supported max. resolution with HDMI Ubuntu 13.10 AMD cardview story

http://askubuntu.com – I've got an AMD graphics card (6900 series) and just installed the beta driver (after fighting with the stable one). I'm also using a screen with 2560x1440 resolution connected via HDMI which works fine on Windows (so I assume there is nothing wrong with the screen itself) but not on Ubuntu. The maximum resolution I can select is 1920x1080 which looks ugly. (HowTos)

The Case for a Compulsory Bug Bountyview story

https://www.linux.com – Security experts have long opined that one way to make software more secure is to hold software makers liable for vulnerabilities in their products.

Synaptics TouchPad gesture suite driversview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I recently bought an Acer Aspire V5-572G-6679 with a nifty multi-touch pad and neat gesture software. It worked in windows 8, but I got rid of that and put on 12.04.
