Re: LogDetail

Linux doesn't change the way plugins are made at all. It's just a change of tools to work with (and greater stability from the OS side). You still need to know C++ to be able to edit/write plugins and know how to use the console to actually build your plugins. I actually built logDetail (on windows)...

The cache file is cached by the client.

Re: Flag-Texture

I've heard something about this being possible with LUA in 3.0, but as far as I know it's not possible in 2.0.
You could still change the texture in your data folder ... but I guess that's not what you want.

Re: help please- new player.

Possible explanation 1 : You are using a wireless connection to the internets. This will fragment the data your PC/Laptop is sendting to the server which causes jitter and lag (lag is the time it takes for the data to travel from your pc to the server; short time=good, long time=bad).

Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

Did a quick google and it looks like the driver name for this particular package is "intel", so you would be writing "intel" to the driver line. Good luck.

Those drivers are not installed or "i810" and "i910" are obsolete names for them.

Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

@Cobra_Fast: The "Identifier" line has no modifier to the operation of the driver or equipment, it's only there in case other sections of the xorg.conf file need to associate themselves with a specific video device (such as when using a multiple display setup). It's perfectly fine to leave it as it...

I can perfectly tell what went wrong: You edited the "Identifier"-Line without changing it's referrences.

This is an xorg.conf extract I forund around the ubuntu forums when I was searching for your graphics chipset.
