    Phoronix: GLAMOR Acceleration Might Work On Newer X.Org

    The widely-believed thought was X.Org Server 1.13 (or newer) wasn't working with the GLAMOR acceleration library to run 2D over OpenGL. GLAMOR is explicitly needed for AMD Radeon HD 7000 series acceleration support while it's an optional feature to the Intel driver. It turns out, however, that GLAMOR might already work with the latest X.Org Server...

        But on the other side, it's not funny at all! (Think about it)

          Well that is another proof rolling release community distros like Arch and Gentoo do more work testing and bugfixing while Canonical claims all the glory. If you notice, this email is an answer to an Arch-related question, i followed it too through the Arch bug tracker.

          The bleeding edge-rolling release model found this out, if we had waited for Ubuntu we would have waited months or even years more... And no, no systems were broken during this discovery and experimentation... That is how a serious distro works, people...

          Now you Ubuntu n00bs and fanbois, go around in other threads and scream "Rolling release model is bad and unstable" again...

            Arch/Gentoo have for sure more tech-oriented users, and tinkerers. No big deal that they influence upstream developemnt.

            If you want to compare rolling vs fixed point releas strategies you MUST compare distros with equall tech-oriented users numbers. Otherwise you risk basing conclusions on biased data

              I'm not saying rolling is unstable, but:

              How was your sysVinit-to-systemd migration back in october 2012? :3

                I was using arch at that time and had no problems.

                  Perfectly well.

                  Just switched off comp. service for sysvinit

                  But I switched to Arch AFTER it switched to systemd just to look at beautifil KDE 4.10 and to see how systemd performs. (Both experiences went well )
