Would it be possible to have one day a version of BBQLinux that supports AMD/nVidia Graphic cards out-of-the-box in the Live edition so I can make a bootable USB and use it natively on my PC with the correct resolutions detected?

I'm asking this because I saw that the only distro that works this way is Ubuntu, which is starting pretty good on Live and the Desktop is really smooth. If BBQLinux could accomplish that, would be definitely the "ultimate USB Linux" to have: for working, for surfing, and even play some 3D game on the fly :)

Thank you in advance!

I am trying latest plasma and I can say it feels fast, on par with mate on my machine. I am mate fan as well, but change is good sometimes.

bbqlinux has been working great recently, (I even found a solution for hdmi and nVidia issues).
But, after the last time I updated I get segmentation issues and vlc stopped working.
The packages causing problems are:
gtk3 ( sudo /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-3.0 --update-cache )
gdk-pixbuf2 ( sudo /usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache )
vlc (  sudo /usr/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen -f /usr/lib/vlc/plugins )
Nothing seems to get the segmentation issues to go away.
Any suggestions on how to solve the problems?
Or recommendations for vlc replacement?
Thank you

A user over at Arch mentioned that this worked: http://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/33laqv/segmentation_fault_in_vlccachegen_after_updating/cqm1ogl

I reinstalled system and then updated via pacman and so far did not come across segfaults.

+Jonathan Zuniga no probs .. ccache will bite you on the ass if you move between versions. It especially gets confusion if you go backwards and then forwards again. It a f**king PITA if you are doing stuff with multiple flavours too. so much so that I now make sure I have individual ccache for each version .. dunno whether that was your problem but that's just what I and others have observed .

Hello considering buying a high end video card since mine overheats, but worried about Arch drivers. Considering this one. I still swap out ssd to run Windows 7 to work with Adobe Software Thats why I want a decent video card. Any suggestion?

Hi All, This is probably  a very silly question to ask but thought i would ask anyway to make sure.  I'm primarily a windows user but its annoying me constantly trying to find drivers that work with my devices.  I've been using bbqlinux for a good 6 months now and love it.  I have it on a usb key that i boot into when i want to use it.  I've recently tried to boot it using virtual box and found it works really well.  My question is, is there any difference in Installing BBQLinux and just running the live image off the key?  I presume its possible to do a full install on the key using the "Install BBQLinux" icon.  Is there anything i should know or is it as simple as just following the wizard?

I feel like i should know more about this area but as a occasional linux user the installation options isn't really my strong point.

Thanks!

During install the whole system gets copied to your harddrive. There's no difference. A native installation is running faster than a virtual machine or a live system on usb.
