  1. Borderlands PreSequel running on Linux, with free AMD stack

    Haven't played the series for lack of time but since it is running on Linux I read the article quickly.

    It's in German...

    I believe it when I see the first fully working free driver that works on more than one specific chip for a specific vendor. Everything else is a fairy tale they make up to get into news again.

    But together with other handles installed it can. I might also be stretching the TPM / TCPA and what it stands for a bit over pure TPM 1.2 or 2.0 specifications. Generally DRM cast into hardware.

    Horray for more TPM weirdness!

    I don't know how long I keep warning people about technologies like this. It seems hopeless.

    There is one side: crypto accelerator ASICs. That can be a nice thing...

    Questionable benchmarking?

    I want to voice a concern.
    All these binary drivers... they are known to come with a lot of "optimizations" -> cheats when it comes to common benchmarks. They will detect benchmarks running and...

    Would probably be for the better. The free driver went with VDPAU and they worked on openmax and vaapi for the unified part, too. So I guess since most software supports vdpau and vaapi it wouldn't...

    Exactly that. And for me that also included intel. (Not only for ImgTec stuff though). But you never knew if you were getting a "real" intel when intel was printed on a chip. Could as well be Poulsbo...

    "let's drop support for ext2/3/4. Unnecessary features like this make it difficult to implement a feature that matters"

    Wow, just wow. Regardless if "external mount" or not, I mean, either way...

    W.T.F.?!

    Are these folks nuts?
    1st: ext2/3/4 is okay
    2nd: WTF? VFAT? NTFS?
    Those aren't good file systems or / and they are patent encumbered!
    In the end LOTs of companies ended up paying a...

    Well. As predicted the other free operating systems can participate from a strong Linux position. Good parts of userland are shared anyway, but the stronger Linux becomes, the better for all the...
  11. short REVIEW The Biostar AM1MHP mainboard for AMD's socket AM1 (Kabini)

    So I got myself an AM1 finally. I patched a nice little box together, featuring the AM1MHP mainboard. Here is a quick review.
    Linux = Gentoo Linux, Linux kernel 3.16.3, recent GPU stack, recent...

    I like the idea that she is tech not business. Of course you also need business people but for a tech enterprise there should be a techy CEO.

    That point is sadly so true.
    Vendor specific extensions and such nonsense. This is also why a lot of chipmakers tell W32 users to go to the laptop / mobo website and get drivers from there. Of...

    It is interesting to see how people suddenly are fleeing towards other shells. But does that really make sense? Nobody can assure you that other shells don't have similar problems. After some mass...

    One more step in the direction to abandon fglrx when time is right. For now, for the people who still need fglrx, it should facilitate things. One day I hope the free driver will be so strong and...

    It's all for your security.
    Probably it is against the omnipresent terrorism.
    Think about the children! Why doesn't anybody think about the children!?
    It is just for your own good.

    Fine that they are adding stuff and looking into issues. Seems the fglrx team finally woke up in terms of Linux/SteamOS. Good move.
    But I think it is ridiculous that you have to write the driver...

    First thought: HD 7950 and R7 260 x, umm, true 2d-office-chips. Weren't there any other chip available for that kind of test? (e.g. E- and C-Series kind of chips)
    Second thought: Ouch for the R7. /...

    A little addition to the thread:

    The GA-E2100N (soldered Kabini) board also features the ITE IT8620 Super IO chip.
    I couldn't read the chip info from any pix on the net (photos were just too...

    Their little AMD boxes do look sexy. (Okay, the intel ones, too.) But it would be really awesome if they would deliver them with a coreboot option. That might give a wonderful car-pc or something....
