Re: Disable GPU on iMac 5.1

anyone? anything? Overheating of the GPU causes the system to crash..
I dont really want to use the display, a headless machine will do just fine.

Re: Disable GPU on iMac 5.1

I do not want to "fix" the gpu, i want to bypass it, as it cannot be changed (soldered on). XRANDR seems to work fine. (running xrandr prints some reports about available connectors and resolution). I am using the open-source driver, but it is not a driver problem. I want to disable the GPU complete...

Disable GPU on iMac 5.1

Hello. I have an iMac 5,1 (late 2006) with a faulty GPU (got it from someone). At the moment, i am connecting to it over ssh. But i am thinking that if it's only the GPU, it might be disabled, the video processing done by the CPU with software rendering (i know, no movies this way), and it might wor...

[solved]Tearing (Linux Mint 15 with Nvidia)

Installed Linux mint 15 RC with an CRT monitor as primary display. Now, i replaced it with a LCD tv. (via HDMI). I dont think that the fact that it's a "TV" should cause any problems... Native resolution : 1366x768 at 60Hz. I am getting 1360x768 atm at 60Hz. If any1 knows how i can get 1366 instead ...

Re: Linux Mint 15 Approved for RC Release

yeah, but in order to upgrade from RC to normal release you need to do a dist-upgrade.. Besides it's not that a big of a problem.. in 2 years dist-upgrade broke it like 3-4 times...and it was fixed like the next day.. (i dont mind breaking it). Not true. Just applying normal updates with the update...

Re: Chinese on other distros

I have searched google for stuff like this but found nothing...

Mint seems to be the problem because when i installed this particular time, i did a "clean" install (wiped /home too), so it was like format -> Mint -> OpenSUSE (problems with chinese) -> Mint (no problem) -> Ubuntu (chinese again).

I was running mint 14 x64 Cinnamon. But i was playing on several occasions with OpenSUSE and now with Ubuntu 13.04 and i keep getting Chinese characters on some programs(after install). This is most probably because of Mint, as it is not affected. For example now i just installed the chrome browser ...
