    Any Gentoo users who don't mind using a live mesa package might like to give my beignet enabled ebuild a try:

    https://github.com/sjnewbury/gentoo-opencl

    To build with beignet you need to have...

    It's orthogonal to Crossfire/SLI. While Crossfile/SLI uses multiple GPUs to render to a single surface (which can be split over multiple screens), Shatter(/Xinerama) takes output from multiple GPUs...

    The Rage XL was a low voltage Rage Pro with a die shrink, it was part of the Mach64 family. That isn't supported by the Rage 128 driver.

    Thanks, I'll look into that. I'm pretty sure the tools weren't around when I first merged the phc driver. Doesn't seem to be anything in portage, so I guess I'll be adding something new to my...

    I've been running a server with a Phenom II 965 X4 for the last few years. I keep it pretty up to date, new kernel every six months or so to which I have ported the K8 PHC cpufreq driver. (I merged...

    The beignet devs haven't really put any time into performance work as of yet, they've been working on ocl-1.1/1.2 coverage. However, quite likely the problem here is due to gpu lock-ups (which I get...
  7. Gentoo Overlay

    I'm still maintaining a gentoo overlay with modified mesa ebuilds integrating beignet:

  8. Gentoo DOES support systemd

    What's with all the claims that Gentoo doesn't support systemd? OpenRC is the default, but the entire point of Gentoo is you chose which USEflags *you* want. I've been using systemd on Gentoo for...

    llvm/clang auto-vectorizes by default, right? I thought gcc did too on relevant targets at -O3, via "-ftree-vectorize", but according to "gcc -O3 -march=native -Q --help=optimizers" it doesn't!

  11. Journalism vs Reporting

    Do people really not understand the difference between journalism and reporting? Have people been so conditioned to only accept "official" press releases as "news", and should be reported as is;...

    "-Ofast" will almost certainly give you faster binaries. You just need to be sure your code is "fast-math" safe.

    Multilib/Multiarch works fine on Linux, and has done at least since the beginning of the amd64 port. The only real issues have been lack of a standardized approach as to where to keep the...

    That's probably because the btrfs default mount options are quite conservative: space_cache and inode_cache (once it's completed creating the cache*) should give noticeably better performance, as...
