They did it!

Yeah, I'm now running my Intrepid setup with a shiny new fglrx-8.543. It installs, it runs, it works with Jockey! Right in time, when I've started to lose my hope...

And I can even watch the video and play games - something I've been missing since I have installed Intrepid back in August :) My huge thanks to all the AMD/ATi and Ubuntu developers who have brought the driver back to us!

Time for some colliding under Ibex...

Dang, it looks like I write in this blog, only when I publish the new SuperCollider binaries... Anyway, if you're interested in trying the latest (7803) SVN snapshot the easy way, it's now available (for Intrepid as well)!

The instructions for installing the SuperCollider debs (and making some sounds) may be found in an earlier howto, but I also think of writing another introductory tutorial on Synths and SynthDefs in the next few days...

And most importantly, I'm probably going to perform a bit of live SC noise by the end of October. So any comments and tips, esp. from those of you, who have played live with SC/Linux are kindly welcome :)
