    I really wish they would state up-front if the various games in each bundle have 64-bit linux builds. I haven't installed a 32-bit system in about 5 years.

    While the proprietary drivers do provide...

    I too am dismayed by the hardware's inability to recover from error conditions. Hopefully AMD's long-term plans to integrate GPU functions into their CPUs will result in more robust GPUs, rather than...

    From the writeup, it looks like Gnash is "mostly complete" for ActionScript 2, with no real ActionScript 3 support. LightSpark is "mostly complete" for ActionScript 3, but does not handle previous...

    Not to mention that there is a reason that Luc is not "part of the group", despite his obvious talent as a programmer and his interest in improving linux graphics.

    By amusing coincidence, I was working on a git bisect for this exact problem when I decided to take a break and browse phoronix. Certain flash video sites trigger it with great reliability on my...

    Almost certainly not. Lucid is a long term support release, and I cannot imagine them updating to mesa 7.8 a bare month before release.

    From what I understand (from recent messages on the mailing list), the issue is providing the Signed-Off-By: line on the patch. This would be an assertion that the code (including microcode/firmware...

    It would be nice to reverse-engineer the microcode, but not necessary to have the driver go upstream. At least one other driver (b43, for broadcom wireless cards) uses firmware the cannot be...
