    So you like the Witcher 2 port better because it doesn't have a DirectX 11 renderer and it looks as shitty on Windows as it does on Linux? I don't see the merit here.

    What part of "pure luck" is so hard for you to grasp? Unless Microsoft stated in their Windos XP EULA (which is the closest to a contract you have with them) that any driver written for that version...

    What are you talking about? The latest driver for Windows was released in 2011, if it works on Windows 8 or newer it's pure luck, just like it would be with any of the external drivers for Linux....

    Since last year the default provider for virtual/ffmpeg in Gentoo has been changed to libav.

    Not sure why they did it but, like others have said before, Gentoo allows you to choose which one you...

    Most drivers can fry/brick the hardware they are supposed to manage. There was a few years ago a bug in an Intel network driver that bricked some cards. But there is no indication that this one is...

    By ABI changes you mean adding new functionality in a backwards compatible way? Otherwise, gcc did not break the C++ ABI since the 3.4 release. And yes, that breakage happened between minor releases,...

    1. Someone mentioned DDWRT as an alternative, that is not true. DDWRT is a restrictive binary blob on top of the Linux kernel. It might feel liberating if you switch from the crappy standard...

    I did try it, it complains my system is too slow to play it. I get the same on my desktop, an A10-7850K when using VDPAU, even though with XV it plains fine. Do yo use any special options? Other...

    According to vdpauinfo it's only capable of decoding H264 up to level 4.1 and 1920x1080@60 is level 4.2 so it might not be able to offload it at all, I'll give it a try anyway
  11. Power usage

    Hope nobody minds if I go a bit on topic on this old thread, but I think the article missed the essential about decode offloading. Lowering the CPU usage is a nice side-effect, but not the goal...

    I don't know where you got this, but it used to work verry well with the latest X server about 2 years ago when I last needed to run a stupid (Motif) app that only works on Solaris/SPARC64.

    Software falbacks don't cause BSoDs so this is unrelated. The certification process tests for stability, not performance and is done on binary blobs received from the vendors AFAIK, so I don't see...
