radeon-profile: tool for changing profiles and monitoring some GPU parameters
I decided to merge branch, where I was reorganizing what is going on under the hood. App now support Catalyst (fglrx driver), can read clocks and temperature. This was done by request (https://github.com/marazmista/radeon-profile/issues/6) but thanks to that and how code looks now, there is an easy way to implement other drivers. I already booted livecd on pc with Haswell graphic and looked inside the files. Turns out, the only valuable info was current gpu clock, so I don't know how to approach this and don't know what nice stuff can be performed with this gpu. Maybe people with hybrid graphic would want to have Intel GPU support. In nVidia case, I saw nvidia-setting screens so I think there is no point in implementing closed source driver but maybe nouveau?
Anyway, next step is creating a daemon which provide functions that can't be done by regular use, and UI working in normal user mode, so there will be possible to add new features.
Finally, I managed to make radeon-profile work with system daemon and now the gui can be run as normal user with all its features. Of course, if daemon will be not installed in system, app will work in old way (requiring root privileges for full functionality).
Another update. I added Exec tab, where user can set environment variables and run apps with these settings. Most of variables I took from http://www.mesa3d.org/envvars.html, but I am aware that there is more useful variables regarding graphics not listed there, so don't hesitate to suggest some useful variables and I will append it to list.
*cleaning up the dust*
Hi. I was working on adding fan control feature that is available in >=4.0 kernel for SI+ cards. If you are using daemon, you must update it as well. There is also little UI adjustments. Hope you all will like it; new screenshots.
