    I'm *really* hoping that the entire of Intel are off working on OpenGLNext. They were doing so well up until August last year, then they seem to have just stopped - they didn't even get to finishing...

    The problem is: (1) video codecs are patented and hardware is a ?!?good?!? way to pay for those patents (2) battery life. Hopefully this will all get fixed soon, though - hardware acceleration...

    Anyone remember a time where something called "RC1" actually had some chance of being shipped?
  4. Fair enough - I haven't used firmware with AMD...

    Fair enough - I haven't used firmware with AMD chips.

    In terms of "how to check that the firmware is loading", if you move/delete the firmware files and you think are loading elsewhere, the...

    That is probably the wrong location. If I understand correctly, it should be in initrd. Isn't UVD officially packaged for Debian?

    The OpenBSD guys do concentrate on security, but they are *definitely* not as infallible as they like to think that they are. In fact, I think I'd prefer my crypto written by people who are...

    Ouch. So that basically means that if there is a security problem, the Fedora security team members will have to run around in a panic, find the source, fix the issue, figure out how to build it,...

    My understanding is that all shipping packages are built from source by the online Fedora "Koji" build system http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Koji. It is bad practice to build shipping binaries on...

    Is it just me, or has Intel been losing people and slowing down Mesa work recently? They were a huge driver in getting Mesa almost to 4.2, but the commit log on the GL3.txt file has been quiet since...
  10. I'd be interested in just a grid of various games...

    I'd be interested in just a grid of various games running on various cards/drivers and a quick "working/not working" report. Performance testing would be a bonus, but I'd like to know if there are...

    They did admit to doing a redesign of the controller. At a guess they were overly ambitious with their timescales, which is understandable given that this is their first major hardware project.

    Maybe - but I think that this is more likely to result in the next Xbox being a PC running a locked-down version of Windows. I just don't see Microsoft wanting to lose the 20% (or whatever) cut that...
  13. I'm not sure what Microsoft's Xbox vs Windows...

    I'm not sure what Microsoft's Xbox vs Windows strategy is going to be, but I am pretty sure it isn't going to involve Steam... I suspect that Valve will eventually lose unless they gamble on Linux

    Correct - you'd install Eclipse instead.

    If Linux is to succeed even just a little bit in the real world, it'll need a "sandbox" environment for the retards^H^H^H^H to play in. Also known as the...

    This is a (minor) kernel bug if I am reading the code right. You should probably grab bridgman or agf5d for a proper diagnosis.

    The WARN message (and note that there is no message logged in this...
  16. Yawn

    I think that JPEG 2000 showed the problem with patented image formats. Also, improvements in network bandwidth and storage mean that this is a solution looking for a problem. Heck, I'm not...

    Fedora may be a little too bleeding-edge for your requirements. Debian or CentOS are my "boring/stable" distros of choice.

    Well, over the years I have coded extensively with systemd, the old sysv init tables and RC scripts (on both RedHat and Debian). I have had no particular problem with any of them. To be honest, I...

    VP8 encode and decode is mandatory for the Android KitKat CDD. Most high-end mobile phones already have hardware for it too if I understand correctly. Hardware seriously lags software, of course -...
