And when I say specifics I mean S-P-E-C-I-F-I-C-S if you know what I mean.
I answer PMs when i see a use in answering them. If someone PMs me just to say how great he thinks LAV is, well, good for them, but nothing i really care to comment on. If someone has real questions, they are better off asking in a public thread anyway, not only that someone else might also be able to answer them, but if i answer, other people also see it, and that may avoid double questions.
And yes, i'm developer, i'm not in user support. A support person may be willing to ask you loads of follow-up questions to get to the bottom of the problem, but they only do it because they get paid to do it, no-one is happy doing first-level support.
I explained that before, this is my free time, and i do with it as i please, and hand-holding people through the install process is not something i want to spend my free time on, because then i wouldn't get any new work done.
If it makes you happier, i could just behave like most developers, hide in a dark room and just develop, not talking to the users at all.
The issue that guy had was most likely a too old NVIDIA driver. 0.8 requires a 270 series driver. There is a special build of 0.8 for older drivers, if you for some reason are unwilling to update (which i do not see a really good reason for, these are not ATI drivers)
