I just had a facepalm moment...
I would have expected C to always automatically cast to the more "powerful" data type. Obviously this isn't the case when comparing signed and unsigned numbers. In such a case the signed value is interpreted as if it were unsigned - binary. As negative integers are stored in the two's complement representation, this leads to odd results.

The following statement is true, for instance:

The reason is, that the two's complement of -1 is 4294967295, which of course is bigger than 2...

Help Needed  - 
Hi! Is there an easy way to install more recent versions of the open source AMD drivers on Debian Stable?

I'm having troubles with one of my OpenCL programs (I'd blame my code, if it wouldn't work well with fglrx...), and as OpenCL development is ongoing within Mesa (and llvm), I'm hoping that meanwhile the particular issue I'm seeing has been resolved.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe I'm blind, but I can't find the package you are talking about. How is the package responsible for Gallium3D based OpenCL called?
(I did find Intel Beignet, fglrx and nVidia though....)

Just saw this in the Linux community. I think it's an accurate depiction of KSP ;-)

Seems the sanity shown in FCCs net neutrality efforts was a one-off
Right now, the FCC is considering a proposal to require manufacturers to lock down computing devices (routers, PCs, phones) to prevent modification if they have a "modular wireless radio"[1][2] or a device with an "electronic label"[3]. The rules would likely: ...

I just stumbled across the "Don't Break Debian" page, and I think it should be a must-read for users of every Debian based distribution (Ubuntu, Mint, SteamOS,...),as it helps avoid many of the most annoying issues new users often run into.
Advice For New Users On Not Breaking Their Debian System. Debian is a robust and reliable system, but it's still very easy for new users to break their systems by not doing things the Debian way. This page lists common mistakes made by new users. Some of the things listed here can be done safely ...

+Nick Ravel yeah, for most of us "techies" that use Linux to learn that's true. But for the average Joe, for whom the OS is just a tool it is not acceptable to fiddle with its "internals".

The average user (99% of the potential users) just wants it to work. That's why OS X is so popular and this won't be the year of Linux in the desktop (again :P)

This is awesome!
AMD users now have one reason less to suffer from Catalyst. Together with the OpenGL 4.1 (and soon 4.2) compliance of the open source driver, there is now very little left that's speaking for the proprietary driver.

I did post logs.
I'm trying to tackle the issue with the help of Gentoo Forums now.

I just want to not need to boot Windows to switch GPUs.
Or have brightness controls working with nouveau. nv124 is apparently not supported

Discussion  - 
I was happy to see that Claw found a fix for the self-heating bug that makes 1.0.4 basically unplayable. Well, after some weeks without KSP I decided to give it a try.
Five minutes after loading my save from 1.0.2: "Z-200 Rechargeable Battery Bank exploded due to overheating". After some research on the forums I found out that while Claw's fix is for the general overheat bug of small parts, there's another bug that causes overheating of parts stored in service bays. As most of my craft from 1.0.2 have Z-200 batteries stored in service bays, I'm still stuck with 1.0.2....

Yeah that bug ground my space program to a halt. Guess I could have reverted but instead I'm taking a hiatus until 1.1
