    AMD was having a problem even getting OpenCL support to the point where it could run even basic features in Blender in Windows. It may have improved, but about a year ago, it was more or less a lost...

    I've only seen one machine that didn't support legacy boot yet (that I'm aware of and that we had to try booting other media on): I believe it was a toshiba laptop.

    As a repair technician, let me describe what I feel is the worst outcome with UEFI: It isn't microsoft locking you out of running Linux (though it can complicate it) - the real problem for us is...

    Maybe i'm in the minority but I think what X needs is aggressive refactoring and code cleanup in the name of maintainability. Backwards compatibility and network transparency are its strongest...

    I'll also add my two cents that it is a good performing filesystem on flash media from personal experience. Because, ya know, that's one of the main criteria for wanting to use such a filesystem. ...

    There is at least a rationale for some of that - grub2 can load boot files from a filesystem in lvm2 inside a raid-5 volume. It practically requires an operating system to accomplish that, and it's...

    I just thought I would mention it here, because it didn't seem to be mentioned besides at the end of the mailing list thread:

    This is not real 16 bit code generation support - it is 32 bit code...

    Great, now that everyone's finished tripping out over nothing (I'm especially impressed and inspired by the people who claim to change their buying behaviors in response to unsubstantiated garbage),...

    What's up with RadeonHD.org?

    Having #radeon IRC logs easily availble would be nice but the site as it is doesn't perform much useful function.

    I think there's very little performance improvement to be had from cruft removal - CPUs are so fast now and memory so large compared to even a few years ago, that X just isn't a performance...

    OpenCL support is not yet in a good state - expect a big performance difference from fglrx and as far as I know it's only to the point of running bfgminer on bitcoin (and you can run some opencl test...

    My guess is it positively affects it, as writing out changes sequentially tends to let the software order things the right way without much effort. I'm imagining this works like an overgrown journal...

    Hi, I'm trying to replicate the opencl-example test on gentoo - I've got llvm, mesa, libclc, libdrm all built from the x11 overlay (running on 3.8.5 kernel), and the opencl-example seems to compile...
