    Sure. I was only joking.

      I'm pretty sure Michael is paid by cannonical

      It would explain why there isn't any bad press this time.

      I don't think michael would have the patience for gentoo. I doubt he'll ever use it or benchmark it.

        Gentoo is the way of the righteous!

          Good to see Phoronix posted a bug report. It will be nice if you'll be posting bug reports about kernel bugs or regressions too.

          Sadly, it seems the Phoronix is ubuntu and gnome centric site. While some time ago I even thought about Ubuntu (but I mainly cared about Kubuntu) as a major Linux distribution I've changed my mind. Kubuntu is nearly not supported in comparision to Ubuntu and I realized Ubuntu is just messed up because of idiotic policy when comes to fixing bugs, release deadline, not upgrading packages versions, bugs (I have a very strong feeling Arch Linux is much more polished and a bug free!) and using crippled DE as a default one. However I don't consider Michael is paid by the Canonical (and if he is then it's nothing wrong of course), but he just likes Ubuntu.

            Yeah the bug report pretty much shows that this is PEBKAC , Nice to see a bug was actually raised however.
            Actually it is still a bug. If the driver requires that libdrm be at a certain level then it should check at load time for such a dependency and report back if it detects if you are running an old version. This usually gives the developer/user a clue that an old lib is installed in the LDPATH.

              Given that all packages in this case are simply snapshots of a development trunk I don't think it's a real issue. Plus on a production system you have a package manager to take care of that.

                @ Everyone who criticized Micheal:

                Your accusations may be right, but still give some credit to him since he listened to the suggestions from the kernel regression related comments and I think he really tried his best this time.
                Even if this time it was not a real/big bug I'm sure it will be able to find some nasty ones in the future.
                Certainly, this is a step in the good direction.

                Keep it up, Micheal!

                  Exactly. It counts Michael reported this what was or looked like a bug.

                    SourceMage and CRUX are 2 other source based distros
