    Yes, with poor X server DDX drivers you can easily hit scenarios when the performance gets killed. The solution is not to use poor drivers. Admittedly this is rather difficult. Especially on ARM...
  2. Yes and no. I'm not taking individual parts (just...

    Yes and no. I'm not taking individual parts (just the server or compositor alone), but looking at the graphics stack as a whole. The purpose of a window system is to provide multiple windows for...

    Based on what I know, the V3D hardware registers are accessible from the ARM core: https://github.com/phire/hackdriver/
    The proof of concept driver port (the target of this $10000 contest) is...

    Makes direct use to do what? Windows composition is just an extra overhead (even if it is the hardware accelerated overhead).

    Can any of the Wayland supporters in this thread answer the following...

    Can you elaborate on this? What exactly is accelerated? I mean, does it already offer something other than just fancy windows composition (which is optional and better to be disabled altogether on...

    The maintainers of the linux distributions don't have unlimited resources and do care about reducing the efforts that have to be done on their side. And the people who don't have spare time and...

    It's not always a technical superiority, but sometimes just a matter of fashion, shameless propaganda or other purely social reasons. Humans are not very bright on average and are easy to manipulate...

    If your primary intended use was a desktop computer replacement, then this kind of hardware was not the best choice. Cubieboard 2 uses a dual-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at only 912MHz by...

    The article says "The BeagleBone Black might be useful for specialized embedded use-cases or penny-pinching Linux hobbyists, but for any real ARM Linux development use or desktop experiments".

    Basically, Wayland now got something similar (or something that serves similar purpose) to child windows support in X11.

    Still the worst performing driver (fglrx) is developed by the professionals, who have full access to the hardware documentation. 2D is simply not seen as important. And the x86 desktop hardware is...

    How so? Actually I would say that the results with different versions of Mesa are not really relevant.

    A recent glmark2 snapshot from bzr, where they added the wayland backend (the 2012.12 version id is bogus in logs). The same hardware, the same version of Mesa. NOUVEAU is reclocked for best...

    So what was the glmark2 score in your case for Wayland vs. Xorg? Also sync to vblank is quite conveniently not supported for nouveau, and I'm getting glmark2 results not in Wayland favour there.

    I compiled XBMC in debian chroot by just typing the build commands from the wiki. This does not seem to be too difficult, except that native compilation is a bit slow on this hardware. I think I have...

    You are contradicting yourself. If the board can boot a mainline kernel (with just initramfs or over network via nfs), then it has at least *some* mainline support already. And now please read the...

    Which part of it looks correct to you?


    I think it's all about priorities. What's the point spending time rewriting the existing open source GPL kernel driver when there is still so much work to...

    Your Mele A2000 is a consumer product, which is coincidentally marketed as a freaking HTPC :) Just boot Android and use it for watching videos instead of launching XBMC. That is if you really don't...
