    There is no such thing as "true freedom". The difference between GPL and BSD/MIT is that BSD/MIT emphasizes the programmer/developer's freedom while GPL emphasizes the user's freedom. You can't say...

    The point is - he doesn't have to. Just run the benchmark twice - once for the -fprofile-generate binary, recompile with -fprofile-use, and run it again. He already has the necessary 'representative...

    So, when are we finally going to see some PGO benchmarks? On some hardware due to PGO you can get ridiculously high speedups; Michael, why are you consistently ignoring this great (and free!)...

    I suggest you try using profile guided optimization on the GCC build. In extreme cases I noticed a 50%~100% speedup when using PGO, and most people ignore this really great optimization.

    As explained before, the color similarity makes these graphs almost useless. What is keeping you from fixing it yourself? You sound like a broken record soliciting the fix from your readers all the...

    Useless.

    My 8 years old machine can decode high definition DivX/XviD/MPEG4p2 on the CPU without breaking a sweat; doing this on a modern machine is a joke resource-wise.

    If someone's doing this...

    In six years I have not seen even one mplayer that was buggy, it always plays whenever I throw at it and I don't remember it ever crashing.

    Oh and, did I say that it's *the* fastest movie player...

    Right now it is not better (in terms of generated object code's quality), in the future - maybe. But, right now it is not, so again, there is no real reason to switch to it.



    I really would...

    As I said, there is no reason, besides the license, to switch the system's compiler to LLVM. If you want to write a compiler/virtual machine/whatever yourself, then LLVM is what you should use, but,...

    Well, they are wasting their efforts in switching to LLVM/Clang in the first place. GCC is a great, mature and very well supported piece of software, there is, as of now, virtually no reason to...

    Actually, it may not be an actual EXT4 bug. I was doing some work a few days ago on a tmpfs (I'm also using .32 kernel) and the whole directory just disappeared, by itself, while I'm using EXT4 for a...
