    I experimented with different window managers and terminal emulators, no significant difference

    just to note, on a 25 line screen you don't notice that much of an issue, but on a rotated HD screen...
  3. any way to test non-gameing performance?

    I have been running a slightly older AMD card with multiple rotated monitors and i've found that simple text scrolling in an xterm is noticably slow. I know that the 3D gameing performance is what's...

    I tried this keyboard as well and returned it.

    the ability to do on-the-fly macros would have been very nice, but lacking that, this is just a good, but plain, keyboard. I can get good, plain keyboards from http://pckeyboards.stores.yahoo.net/...

    one very important question is how the 64 bit flash compares to 32 bit flash on the same hardware.

    I upgraded to the 64 bit flash sometime last month, and it seemed to be smoother than the 32 bit...

    the real benifits would have show up with limited memory

    the real battery and power savings figures would have shown up if the ram had been limited to 256M or 384M, then the DEs that used more memory would have been exercising the hard drive for swap,...

    I disagree with you a bit here.

    it would be nice to see both SSD and rotational tests that are comparable, both so that people considering SSDs can see what difference is made, and also to find...

    next run please inclue XFS

    when you do the next round of such tests, please include XFS. I know that it's now new and sexy, but it's still reliably outperforming many of the filesystems in the test

    unless you mount the partition with the sync option it is not safe to run without barriers even with a UPS.

    command not found sounds more like it's not finding apt-get, not that ia32-libs is not there.

    interesting.

    what was it lacking? (so that I can pass it on the the git developers as a possible enhancement)

  12. did you use or recreate 'git bisect run'?

    git has the command 'git bisect run <script>' that will automate the bisect and testing process (the script returns one code if the test passes, a different on if it fails, and a third one if the...

    I think it's a bit more than involved than this. the fact that many video cards have write-only functions where only the process that did the write can know what the state of the card is makes it...

    with KMS the X.org code doesn't need to know how to configure every possible video card in existance. Instead it uses a standard interface to ask the kernel to configure things for it. The kernel...

    a large part of the benifit of switching to KMS is simplification. X.org is conenctrating on making this shift, and viewing kernel mode selection as the primary focus going forward.

    the cost of SELinux is not eliminated by just disabling it at boot time. there is a noticable cost to have it compiled into the kernel, even if it's not used. so it would be good to see a different...
