I am so f****king tired of installing linux only to find out that your graphics card needs some special tweeking or my sound is full of static noice and so on. Yes I know sudo this and sudo that. or “it is only” to do this or that. I have over the years (+15) off and on been playing around with linux and it is just as unstable as it has ever been. If you are lucky and have the correct hardware you might get lucky. Im sorry but this is the last time I devote my time to linux. I think it is spot on that Linux has a none flying bird as a mascot. Linux like the Penguin will always be stuck on the ground hoping for more
For those tracking this tread, lets give xorfodan a chance to ask some specific questions wrt what is causing his frustration and how he has asked us to aid … xorfodan, I note Camaleón tried to assist you here, but you did not reply to his efforts: Monitor problem - openSUSE Forums
Our forum is here to help users, … there are not many developers on this forum. We do not code the Linux software, but we do try to help.
So please provide specific questions (with appropriate technical details) so that help efforts can be made.
I would suggest that if he really needs help, he starts a new thread and explain his problem with as much details as possible. Not in this one since his post is 1) not directly problem related as it doesn’t state what exactly the problem is - it is a fed-up rant thread, and 2) very provocative and if kept alive, will eventually no doubt explode thus wasting time of all who participated in it just so in the end it will be closed (and people banned due to it)
I do know that there is a lot of nice people here, willing to give a helping hand, don’t get me wrong. I this case I do agree that my manner was not the best, I needed to blow of some steam. I wasn’t directing my rant to anyone in particular ( Maybe a little bit to ATI )
But your post shows off your ignorance of why linux doesnt support all hardware.
Graphics card issues are not the fault of linux, linux is a system made by volunteers and people who dont get paid much for their services.
The real blame goes to ATI, who has always been a thorn in the side of linux.
To use linux one must know of its limitations, BUT also be aware that those limitations are no fault of linux.
