    This "release" sounds more like a ploy to get applications optimized for PowerVR, i.e. to lock people in, while keeping all the secrets
    secret (or like "our driver is crappy, so here's some specs,...

    If you look at the file, you'll find it contains source for wrapper around a precompiled binary and a basic script
    to compile it into a working module. it provides 2 ioctls which wrap some kernel...

    That's kind of the center of most criticism -- that systemd and the systemd way
    of doing things "infects" a lot of unrelated packages, i.e. even if you don't like
    systemd, all your other options...

    the dx (=windows) market is obviously much much larger, and their developers are most familiar with it too. there are also time and budget constraints
    to consider and now they obviously have some...

    i believe the sole reason acpi and uefi exist for arm/arm64 is windows. arm wants windows available on arm/arm64 as well, and
    it'll be a freezing cold year in hell before ms is going to entangle...

    The quote was from an official local ARM dealer. For the 5k€ I expect decent documentation about all parts on the board (main cpu register description, board schematics, datasheets for all other...

    I requested a qoute on a single board, ~around 5000 :) So you CAN get one, if you have the spare cash..

    Expanding on that: The compile time test is especially useless on ARM: Everybody working with ARM is going to cross-compile on a
    fast multicore x64 machine anyway!
  9. The documentation is there, and I find it quite...

    The documentation is there, and I find it quite adequate: You have man-pages for libc-provided functions, tons of source to look at if you want to know
    how to do things (conversely, this is how I...
  10. compare object code size as well please

    Oh and while I'm at it:
    How about you also compare the code size of the output the compilers produce?

    (I've been playing with llvm-svn on MIPS a bit, and so far it consistently produces larger...

    The list of individual benchmarks chosen looks really like someone is trying to make clang look shiny.
    GCC is better on the 2-3 benchmarks which handle real world stuff, the rest (compile time and...

    I very much doubt that. most if not all usb memories are shipped with FAT or NTFS, and the internal
    wear-levelling logic uses the known access patterns of these two FSs to spread writes evenly to...

    My distributor told me I'll get it sometime in May. It's rather disappointing that nvidia needs to announce it weeks before they can actually deliver it..

    A few years ago in a talk Greg KH mentioned that apple uses linux on newly developed iphone hardware to see if it works.

    The steam runtime I have doesn't include a libc.so, so it uses the default 32bit one from the host system.

    ffast-math makes some assuptions about float math which can lead to faster code and loss of precision. see the gcc manual about it.

    And it only contains SPEC results, which are as useful as a spaceship in the challenger deep, considering
    that especially icc uses shortcuts when it knows it is compiling the SPEC suite

    No kidding, since its sole reason for existing is Windows RT. "If it boots windows -> ship it" still applies today :)

    I run Gentoo with KDE on a few MIPS toys; it's surprisingly stable and gives no more headaches than say ARM (i.e. the usual
    problems with source written with x86 in mind).

    I like MIPS, it's a...
