[QUOTE=Jookia;33730124]Do they have x64 support?[/QUOTE] Only Bit Trip Runner has a 64-bit download. But 32-bit works fine on 64-bit Linux. You just need to install 32-bit libs like SDL or OpenAL. [editline]15th December 2011[/editline] Oh, and you'd need 32-bit graphics drivers, which was always a pain in the ass back when I used Gentoo.
It's totally worth it regardless, in my opinion anyway. Another bundle of awesome games for Linux? Yes, thank you! Now all we need is for them to get onboard desura as well.
I need some help. Logging off in xUbuntu 11.10 64bit isnt working for me. After trying to log off I got BSOD (rly!) - screen is going blue (something like this[URL="http://*********com/bsodlinux"][/URL]: "tinyurl com/bsodlinux") and I cant do anything : / Any solution on this? My PC: Athlon 3000+, 1GB DDR1, Radeon 2600XT.
The more I use Ubuntu, the more I'm getting to hate it. I wish I had time to install Arch, but I simply know that Arch is brilliant at getting errors that need some time to fix. Once set up Arch is way better than Ubuntu.

[QUOTE=T3hGamerDK;33732355]It's totally worth it regardless, in my opinion anyway. Another bundle of awesome games for Linux? Yes, thank you! Now all we need is for them to get onboard desura as well.[/QUOTE] Whats cool about this bundle is all 7 games were newly ported to Linux for this release. None of them had a Linux version before.
I just bought it, a bit of a waste of money though because Super Meat Boy (the main game I was excited for) doesn't run on Intel cards?
Super meat boy has audio problems for me. The whole game goes quiet in the middle of every level. [editline]15th December 2011[/editline] Smells suspiciously like a bad port. Hopefully they'll try to improve it.
Icculus is the guy who ported many of the games in the bundle (probably including Super Meat Boy), and here is what he had to say about Intel gpus: [url]https://twitter.com/#!/icculus/status/147335286895034369[/url] [quote]Every time I ship a new game and get the flood of "bug" reports, I'm mad all over again that Intel flooded the market with shitty GPUs.[/quote] I can understand why making games work on Intel would be miserable, but it does suck that it doesn't work for you.
Isn't Super Meat Boy made in Flash?
[QUOTE=thelinx;33742745]Isn't Super Meat Boy made in Flash?[/QUOTE] The original was, but I don't think this was. According to Wikipedia, the Flash game was just called Meat Boy and it came out in 2008.
Only the original. Yeah I can't give them any stick, at least they tried! Besides, it turns out the other ones I've tried so far have been awesome.
It's on Xbox too, and I don't believe it can run Flash games, so it's probably native. [editline]15th December 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=PvtCupcakes;33730779]Only Bit Trip Runner has a 64-bit download.

[editline]15th December 2011[/editline] Oh, and you'd need 32-bit graphics drivers, which was always a pain in the ass back when I used Gentoo.[/QUOTE] The download for Super Meat Boy contains a 32-bit binary and a 64-bit. You just run the SuperMeatBoy script and it picks which to run for you. I haven't checked the other games, so I don't know if they have both binaries as well.
Hi, new to Linux. I'm running the Arch Linux i686 distro on an old computer. I'm trying to figure something out. I created a new login and it a password, but then I removed the password with passwd -d username. The server is only accessible locally, so security is not an issue. According to what I've read online, removing the user's password should allow the user to login without a password; but when I try to login as this user, it prompts me for a password, I enter nothing, then I get "access denied". Any idea what's going wrong here?
You should always have a password for your accounts; instead you should look into [url=https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Automatic_login_to_virtual_console]Auto-login.[/url]
[del]Is there anyway to access a command line before reaching a login screen (Grub/boot time options?) I'm running Arch in a VM, installed SLiM and added it to daemons. When I reach the login screen, it won't accept mine or root account for some reason. Need to edit rc.conf before the login screen.[/del] Solved. (Ctrl+Alt+F2)
Bought the Humble Indie Bundle 4. 64bit pure system with FOSS drivers, BIT.TRIP RUNNER works great.

After using Ubuntu for many years, I decided to give Arch a try. Granted, it was into a VM, but doesn't make much easier. It was a bit of a doozy having to manually install everything, and took me three hours (actually, one hour was downloading the KDE packages, which took forever for some reason). The others were troubleshooting. But the effort paid off. I learned quite a bit, and I'm actually impressed with how well it runs. Its almost perfectly smooth, which is pretty good considering I'm in a VM and even HD video on Youtube plays perfectly. Maybe this Christmas break I'll find an old computer, and then install Arch on it for shits and giggles.
What exactly does a USB installer like UNetbootin do to an ISO to make it work with a flash drive? Why wouldn't it just work to burn the ISO contents as is to the flash drive, as is done with a CD?
[QUOTE=Elecbullet;33761143]What exactly does a USB installer like UNetbootin do to an ISO to make it work with a flash drive? Why wouldn't it just work to burn the ISO contents as is to the flash drive, as is done with a CD?[/QUOTE] It has to do with the filesystem on the device and where the bios expects to find the bootloader. CDs use the ISO 9660 filesystem and most linux distros use the isolinux bootloader. What unetbootin does is extract the ISO to the flash drive(usually FAT32) and installs the syslinux bootloader.
Is duplicity available on Arch?
[QUOTE=FlamingSpaz;33768420]Is duplicity available on Arch?[/QUOTE] Yep: [url]http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/duplicity/[/url]
[QUOTE=IpHa;33769209]Yep: [url]http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/duplicity/[/url][/QUOTE] Thanks. Currently installing arch now. [editline]17th December 2011[/editline] Okay, I've got XFCE running, do I need yaourt to use the AUR?

[editline]17th December 2011[/editline] Okay, I've got XFCE running, do I need yaourt to use the AUR?[/QUOTE] You don't need anything to use the AUR, yaourt just makes it easier. [url=https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages]Here's some info on installing from the AUR[/url] (you'll need it in order to install yaourt).
Linux is so much more pleasant to use in a Desktop configuration. I'm using an old laptop, though it is set up just like a Desktop so I don't have to worry about petty things like wireless drivers. And the fact that it uses a regular (but still shit) Intel GPU, it's still leagues better than the ATI one which had absolutely terrible drivers, and I actually get 3d performance worth mentioning with the Intel one now. The only thing I can really complain about is that my CPU is definitely being burdened by it, as it's a 1.4GHz Celeron M.
Well shit, my duplicity backups from Ubuntu won't work on Arch Luckily I had almost nothing to lose.

How can I execute a command at boot? I need to run a jar file every time the OS boots but I can't figure out where to write the command. It's like "java -jar app.jar" The os is Centos 5 I tried google but damn I am retarded and can't find a clear answer.
Add it to /etc/inittab
From what's I've read the proper way of doing this is to add the command to the bottom of /etc/rc.local
