    Our IBM server with UEFI takes over 5 minutes to boot. The OS portition (with sysvinit) takes less than 10 seconds.

    So is 5 minutes the norm for UEFI while faster UEFI systems just skip...

    Funny that I have two almost identical systems with Sabertooth 990FX R2 bios 2501 + FX-8350 + 16GB ECC memory both running 3.17.4 and vfio.

    I do not remember any unstability with 3.17.x but I did...

    Yeah, I noticed that too. It's mentioned on Wikipedia.

    Foxconn is such a huge corporation that it's likely the quality and production requirements are written on contract and THAT determines the...

    But that's just unnecessary. It's in fact better if they have the same name if they do the same basic task. This only applies to generic names of course.

    If they were named differently and I had...

    Sigh. Whenever "GNOME" or "KDE" is mentioned trolls attack the comment section. In fact I have been ignoring comments on these articles recently and unless the situation changes will probably...

    I believe they already decided to call them "Gnome System Settings" and "KDE System Settings", but with the prefix removed under native DE.

    And a possible long term solution is to remove the need...

    yes

    I'm getting occasional GPU lockups in Nexuiz with effects set to "ultra". If effects are set to "high" the problem disappears. And this is indeed with HD 5650.

    Confirmed with Mesa 7.11-rc2,...

    I suspect it wouldn't work with fast-paced games, but with games like Fallout 2 it might.

    It would certainly be possible to interpolate some more clock frequencies between clock modes and then...

    I think desktop effects or things like that may need faster upclocking. (Not sure I don't use any.)

    Also if I play a video clip with "mplayer -vo gl" sound tends to go out of sync if upclocking is...
  10. Thanks for that link. I wouldn't have even...

    Thanks for that link. I wouldn't have even considered a delay that long. I think it makes sense on desktops where power saving is not that important.

    I have determined that the dynpm switching...

    I guess the actual problem is that dynpm does not really know the workload. It simply polls the queue every 100ms. If by pure chance it happens to be empty enough times downclocking is initiated.

    Correction. I actually meant: "do not downclock unless the peak workload during certain period X has dropped below threshold"

    Thanks.

    I already made v2 of the patch (right after sending, DOH), but it doesn't actually change anything so I guess there is no need to send it. I have some additional features in mind, but I...
  14. Radeon power management patch

    I posted it on bug 38917 because Phoronix does not allow attachments?
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38917

    It could probably use some more documentation. See my earlier post for...

    All right. I'll try to post it soon. Possible in a few hours.

    Btw. I have made these modifications mostly just for fun and practice (my C was rusty). I was totally expecting that similar patches...

    Thanks, that's very useful information. Just yesterday I noticed I may also have that problem. At least there is something shady about it. I didn't properly test it yet, because I also found some...
  17. Power profiles

    This is correct, but there are also bugs in the kernel code.

    I have made an almost proper patch for debugging and manually fixing these problems. If there is any demand I might complete it. The...

    Right. With only 1 power state the file is disabled. But you could still enable it if you wanted. Just move these 3 lines:

    They are fixes to the generic power management code so yes.

    That said I have not tested any other systems except mine. It's fairly easy to fix individual systems, but generally the kernel code...
  20. Dynpm

    That's correct. It's in the kernel.

    Btw. I have almost fixed dynpm on my evergreen box. At least it's now usable!

    Some facts about dynpm and flickering on my system:

    1. There is simply not...
