    Given that these drivers have not been maintained in years i would be surprised to suddenly see people stepping up to maintain them.

    It is a Dell Latitude E6420. Core i5@2.3 GHz. Intel graphics card. 1600x900 screen. 97 Wh battery. Standard 7200RPM hard drive. To see the consumption i just use powertop2. When the AC is not plugged...

    I guess it really depends on the laptop. With my SB, with 3.0 i get typically 8-10 hours of battery life doing web browsing, with power saving options activated it drains about 10W. I do not have...
  8. Graphics card regression

    On Sandy Bridge, the regression in the 3.0 kernel is probably caused by the graphics card. If you add i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 to the boot kernel options the power consumption goes back to previous...

    Ah thanks, i think i see what you mean. So for instance an incomplete pipe driver might be able to run only some ST for instance due to some missing implementations?

    One driver per ST per chipset??

    Hi,

    There is something i do not quite understand in this matrix. I thought the aim of Gallium was to write only one driver per pipe and once this driver written, all state trackers would work...

    ATI plays the opensource game (partially at least) releasing docs to make Free drivers and their binary driver runs KDE 4 perfectly. Intel shows decent performance with KDE 4 too. So far NVidia has...

    Not constructive? KDE 4 is simply not usable at all with the nvidia driver. Konsole takes several seconds display when minised. The effects run at 2 to 3 fps. Moving windows is extremely shaky. My...

    After having tested it for some time finally i think there is some improvement on NVS135M. Far from perfect, especially in Twinview which gives quite a hit to the performances.

    And ... still dog slow on my NVS 135M. I am not sure this driver will ever get fixed on laptops. KDE has been out for 8 months now and still the same problems. :(

    It is still far from being reasonably correct. On my NVS 135M, in KDE 4.1, it takes a good 4-5 seconds just to resize konsole for instance. Try moving the folderview plasmoid, it is shaky (also the...
