    Not at all. amdgpu just opens up new possibilities for recent and future GPUs. The old driver won't disappear and will still be maintained. The new driver stack also shares various components with...

    This only affects 32-bit systems, on which ASLR has limited use anyway (due to lack of address space). And nobody in their right mind should use 32-bit Linux on a modern x86 CPU. If anything, this is...

    Hey guys... does anyone know if this affects FreeBSD 10.1 release? The information presented in this thread doesn't really make it entirely clear.

    The amount of RMS/GNU cultism is really frightening. "RMS' predictions were always right" - well yeah, except when they weren't.

    Oh this is ridiculous, Mediatek is the worst SoC vendor and this is non-debatable. Many Android phones were stuck on Android 4.2 until very recently because of Mediatek. Their support package is a...

    Limiting the program to certain minorities is discrimination, which is never good, even if it is well-meant. The new name is also a bit too silly in my opinion.

    Well, I meant the Rakudo implementation of course, I'm not trying to twist any words. 'Perl 6' is often used as a synonym for the Rakudo implementation, even on the Perl6 website. Anyway, no, Rakudo...

    Eh, I think the improvements in LLVM (VGPR spilling and machine scheduler) are much more important for performance and correctness than these changes to Mesa. Still, looking forwarding to benchmarks.

    Yes, Python might be 100x more popular than Rust. Rust is a pretty new language though. Perl6 on the other hand, is old. Nonetheless, Rust is already far more usable because developers actually try...

    I think the justifications are a bit strange and inconsistent. Wine's GL-D3D translator was modeled and optimized to work well with Nvidia's closed-source drivers (because that is what the developers...

    I'm not trying to move goalposts. A small number of ethusiasts simply doesn't matter much. It doesn't say much about Perl6 popularity at all that a particular talk on a conference had some number of...

    It doesn't really matter. Is the language actually used for real projects? Is the specification stable? Are any of the various implementations mature? Is there any good documentation? Nope. It's...

    We already were at the "too little, too late" stage back when Rakudo Star was released in 2010. Today Perl6 is simply laughing matter. The few remaining Perl aficionados are sticking to Perl5.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm pondering to buy Grim Fandango Remastered:

    The page explicitly says that OSS AMD drivers are not supported. Does anyone...

    The ARM11 in the Pi has a pretty capable FPU as well. This isn't the first time I'm seeing people claim that it doesn't have an FPU. Where are you people getting that from?



    That's maximum...

    Do they? I just checked the donor list, and it doesn't look like they are short on donations at all. They have three "Uranium" sponsors apart from WhatsApp, each one donated at least 250K. Plus tons...

    In fact floating point support is a strong point of the Pi. ARM11 has a much beefier FPU than Cortex-A8.

    For video decoding and playback, VA-API is not better, neither on paper nor in practice. Especially the presentation layer of VA-API is extremely lacking.

    There's just one thing: VA-API supports...

    Please read the spec for NV_vdpau_interop. The extension exposes video surfaces as separate fields. So the video decoder either needs to output fields directly or the frames have to be split up.
