[LAPTOP] And then there was one. Installed Kubuntu on HP laptop.view story

https://www.kubuntuforums.net – Previously, I had 2 Kubuntu computers I built myself and 2 laptops that came with Windows 7 and 8. I had the mentality that "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" for quite a long while and used Windows 7 on this laptop and it did work perfectly. However, upon hearing that Windows has possibly created custom made backdoors for the NSA, I had a change of heart. (HowTos)

Octodad on PS4 uses hardware PhysX?view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I was playing the demo for Octodad on PS4 in Gamestop earlier today, and I saw something interesting on the intro screen -- the PhysX logo. Now it's important to differentiate between CPU PhysX and GPU accelerated PhysX. CPU PhysX is hardware-agnostic on PC and has been a competitor to the Havok CPU physics engine on both PC and consoles for years. (Hardware)

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)

Peculiar GNOME / display resolution issue 13.1 upgradeview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hardware: Acer Aspire 5536, 4GB RAM, 320 GB hard disk, AMD Athlon X2 64, ATI Radeon graphics. Did a live upgrade from 12.3 to 13.1 by opting for Download first and then upgrade. Took me nearly 12 hours. After that, GRUB option 1, i.e., standard 13.1, does not boot fully. It goes to a white screen with a sad face saying something like "something went wrong, sorry'. (HowTos)
