    So, UFS story doomed to repeat itself another time - now same would happen to ZFS. You can't just use "UFS" - there is about half dozen of different flavours, incompatible each other. So if BSD fans...

    But:
    1) It has been unstable for few years regardless of bold claims. Most notable "stable" filesystem in FBSD lacked correct sendfile() syscall support, causing heck a lot of deadlocks when some...

    As for changing license: Linux was here way before CDDL/ZFS and Sun probably intentionally made it incompatible with GPL in hope to reduce competition from Linux to their Solaris. But now we can see:...

    Good luck with it :).


    Interestingly I recently did such test with AMD GPUs of 57x0 series. And these proven to have at least some overheat protection. Thermal grease got dry and stopped doing...

    I prefer suspend-to-RAM on my notebook. Because storing and readin dozen and half gigz to slow notebook HDD each and every time system goes to powersave looks like really moron idea to me. And I...
  6. About swap files: ditch it forever.

    It could be much wise idea just add as much RAM as you can afford and forget swap files/partitions, preferrably forever. Dozen and half of gigz RAM would usually do without swap file at all. Needless...

    Also Btrfs fixes made it into that kernel.

    Btrfs fixes mentioned as rejected have actually made it into kernel on 2nd attempt, even though patch has been somewhat reduced.

    What (not to) do when you got raw hardware access :)

    So, once you've got direct hardware access, kernel mode or otherwise, you can try the following:
    Caution: doing these things can be extremely harmful and/or destructive. Think twice it its what you...
  9. Reduced patchset has made it to 3.17 before -rc1,

    Somewhat compacted version of this patch set (i.e. fixes of nasty issues rather than less significant stuff) has actually made it into 3.17-rc1.

    Just looking into GIT commits log:

    MS vs Linux, etc

    They should compare licensing for sure :p

    MS: you pay the price like if it was full ownership but rather getting some non-exclusive right to use copy of their crap. You're prohibited from changing...

    I can propose couple of another benchmarks:
    1) bfgminer --scrypt --benchmark (https://github.com/luke-jr/bfgminer.git) - massively parallel computations with incredibly heavy GPU memory demands. GPU...

    I'm not even sure it is bug in LLVM. Could be some kernelside issue or so. I can see heavy activity related to memory management patching in Linux kernel, etc. Any hints from AMD guys? After all it...

    Bench shows what it should!

    Benchmark shows what it should: in computation loads its >90% of raw hardware power. When it comes to I/O it could get a bit worse. Just as with any other full virtualisation.

    And I'm sorry to...

    As for me I would prefer to see ffmpeg, because:
    1) Libav devs are uncooperative and this often delays their project compared to ffmpeg in adoption of various techs. Ffmpeg is generally faster at...
  15. What I hate about x86? BIOS/UEFI in first place.

    Here we can see how sucking proprietary software could be. Just one example: my computer's BIOS would hang if you press someything on USB keyboard between BIOS logo disappearance and boot loader...

    They are. And from theoretical point of view, they should be da best when it comes to launching some proprietary winduz crap since they reimplementing exactly same API and ABI in its native form.

  17. SCons suxx. And this is python crap as well?

    Scons proven to be really unusable and bugged piece of shit when it comes to building programs. Its my least favorite of all build systems at all. And this one is some python crap too?

    And to be...

    MESA haves potential. Attempts to mimic proprietary API is a dead end though. Its really silly waste of time to mimick proprietary API rather than improve (or even create new) open APIs instead. Same...

    Ahh, I see, libs updated - now it seems to be correct from logical point of view.

    Yet, I wouldn't call LLVM3.5 perfect. Now it can build and run kernels where previous versions failed....

    Has nouveau got working reclocking, after all? This is absolutely mandatory for anyhow serious competition with anything around. From what I've read from Phoronix, it looks rather pessimistic and I...
