Cantankerousun_operator - yes, but that has no effect on ARP. Switches just learn where each MAC is. If a server has multiple MACS with the same IP, you could in theory send to any one although in practice you would only send to the MAC in teh current ARP table. IP responses could come from any interface and therefore have any of tose MAC addresses. This does not affect the packet meanings at IP level01:09

Pie-rateWhy does linux seem to be worse than windows at multitasking, especially for games?

thoreauputicmakuseru: heheh - not strong on metaphors are you ;-)03:32
kenThomsonAshton_K: The Ext3 file system is the Ext2 file system which has been extended by journaling. Ext3 is backward-compatible to Ext2 - an Ext3 volume can be mounted and used as an Ext2 volume. Just as older Linux Kernels which do not know the Ext3 file system can mount Ext3 volumes (as Ext2 volumes), the Ext2 file system driver ext2fs.sys for Windows incorporated in this software package can do...03:32
kenThomson...it without any problems, too. Of course you do not take advantage of the journaling of the Ext3 file system if you mount it as an Ext2 file system.03:32

Spistersright, my question is, is there any reason to duel boot, can Ubuntu look to windows for drivers?06:51
Ashton_KBut if Windows is installed second, it'll overwrite grub with the MBR, which won't see Linux.06:51
Ashton_KFor drivers? No way.06:51
Ashton_KOnly if you have some software in Windows that you REALLY want.06:52
Ashton_KOr Games.06:52
Spistersthen if I have other computers with windows and need this as a server this is no reason to do that06:52

Ashton_KAs far as linux is concerned, it's just taking up space.06:52
Ashton_KIt can't borrow drivers, executables, anything.06:52

adriftholycow, well for one thing, getting games to play on Ubuntu is sometimes a chore. I have to use Wine, and even then there's stuff i'm struggling with, like being able to switch between a running game and the desktop. i know it can be done (in windows you just hit the "super" key). That's just one example.07:22

wantamad7.1 has aiglx built-in. it makes beryl run on less cpu usage08:20
adrifti'd say... probably moderately to advanced08:20
sciboyadrift: There is no such thing as an unbiased opinion though, i've been using Debian for 5 years and counting now.08:20
thoreauputicwantamad: OK - I don't know what the edgy version is to be honest08:21
PORDOdebian needs to stop using Condorcet elections, and switch to range voting.08:21

sciboyadrift: I highly recommend Ubuntu, it's friendly without being crippled in any way.08:21
thoreauputicadrift: people from non debian distros often don't understand the Debian Way (tm)08:21

adriftsciboy, well as far as i can tell, according to time lines and what not... seems that most folks find Debian to be ahead of the curve only just recently. and that eventually something bigger and better will come along with one of the older or other distros08:21
PORDOI hate how ubuntu is all african themed.  I want something blue and european feeling...something very empirialist.08:21

adriftTo tell the truth, i've always found IRC chats more complicated than they have to be, but with XChat and this channel, i feel pretty comfortable to ask questions to you all and getting straight answers that i often can't get even in online forums08:25
thoreauputicwantamad: I don't know for sure, but I think edgy probably uses a newer libc6 - so you would be looking at some serious breakage I suspect08:25
PORDOthoreauputic doesn't work.  i still need the gstreamer plugins.08:25
wantamadyea. ill try edgy out08:25
PORDOi feel trapped though adrift, because i just have this...sort of "basic' question about getting dmix working, and i can't find the answer anywhere.  i use forums, i ask in #alsa... nothing works.08:26
thoreauputicPORDO: if you have lots of room, install all the gstreamer plugins ;) sudo apt-get install gstreamer*08:26
PORDOi've spent the past two weekends on it.08:26

thoreauputicPORDO: what exactly are you doing (ie there may be a diferent answer)08:27
SuperLag/lastlog is your friend08:28
cstrippiehope - the general consensus was that the Radeon 9800, not the P4 was the problem08:28
adriftholycow, i realize that lol. still, like you said before, sometimes knowing the why helps understanding the how08:28
sciboyPORDO: For the record you don't need to use grep, apt-cache search gstreamer vorbis should work fine.08:28
sciboyPORDO: Oh and apt-cache shouldn't require superuser priveleges either.08:28
