I think the way it used to work in the official forums was fine, as long as you were logged on to the site with a useraccount. But do whatever works best for you.
I appreciate the work you've done with the P-series drivers. Thank you.

Best regards

Why not having a separate volonteer "mailing-list" announce ?

The other "clean" way would be to have a "sticky" thread "announces" which is locked and you manually "bounce" it when new updates come out. (so that people can subscribe to it and get informed).

Have to check how that works with phpBB...
I'm able to send mass mails to all users out there, but I don't want to spam
you all out there with news about driver development etc. :)

I created two sticky threads already that can be watched, but I don't know
how to make them read-only. But I doubt that anyone will answer on this
two threads and if so, I'll delete the message :-p

Lock them !

(you will still be able to post on it).

Tell people to "subscribe to the thread".

To mass-mail :
1. edit the first post.
2. reply to the thread telling "Updated !". (and people will recieve "someone replied in the topic you watched....")

Lock them !


Within the administration panel, I'm able to lock a whole forum but not
single topics... At least I haven't found a way to do so by now :) Maybe I'm
just too stupid for phpBB...

Try Moderator pannel, or the small "lock" Icon under threads (under the "reply" button)

Thanks, that did the trick :)
I thought the moderator panel is just a lightweight interface for
non-administrators, but it isn't...

have you considered packaging the drivers so they can be updated with apt/yum/rpm/etc.?

Then please tell me the address of your local chinese man and I'll mail
him for new releases.

He then just has to print the mail and wrap a cookie around it :)

matrox configuraturer

Postby myfanwy » Sun Mar 18, 2007 5:28 am

while we're on the subject of essentially one-click installs of your matrox drivers, a nice gui control panel, similar to nvidia nview/matrox powerdesk, would be really useful, particularly for configuring multi-displays. i'm not thinking of the 'getting 3 displays to work' part, more the selecting which display windows/dialogue boxes/etc. open on, getting the displays in the right order, etc.

and of course to help everyone who can't edit xorg.conf themselves
