pedjaHow is xorg handling monitor change these days?Is monitor section in xorg.cong still needed?10:01
Rotwangpedja: I have no xorg.conf at all10:19
pedjaRotwang: it will set it autoamgically?10:20
pedjacool :)10:21
Rotwangpedja: I don't know how it will handle it if you have xorg.conf available with monitor section though10:21
Rotwangit is probably best to remove that section10:22

Plazmaso isn't slackware also suppoed to be a KISS and simple distribution? i haven't used it since 7.0 .. i think i tried it again when it was 11 and it was kinda bloated18:05
joacimPlazma: this was merely a joke. a troll is intended to rile up emotion and cause sick in the channel.18:07
joacimmy three messages was nothing more than a plain old bad joke.18:08
Plazmajoacim: ohh ok .. sorry , and sorry if it appeared i was accusing.. wasn't trying to18:08
Plazmai just am not the best at picking up humor..18:09
joacimi've seen whole channels ban all of norway due to some people's humor =)18:09
Plazmai know the Finns have a pretty shitty sense of humor, too18:10
joacimthis thing about disk permissions is pretty common on some mac forums. there will always someone who tells you to repair your disk permissions, no matter what the problem is.18:11
Plazmai'm a os x and mac fan but, i know their stupidity and fanboism18:12
joacimfanboys can ruin things sometimes :/18:18
joacimseen enough crazy amiga people that i'm afraid of getting one18:18
joacimtho i've seen enough crazy mac people or pc gamer people too18:19

Plazmai'm a best tool for the job type of guy18:36
Plazmaif all you do is basic office stuff and need windows.. use it18:36
