    I would figure Apple has a very vested interest in LLVM doing well on ARM. (They're likely holding back stuff, but still, they're moving to LLVM/Clang for iOS...)

    The problem appears to be that...

    I could definitely see this being useful in a hypothetical Chromebook CM10/11, and if Android on netbooks turns out to make sense, enthusiasts can get another taste of the future (much like the Nook...

    I feel that long-term, FreeBSD going to Clang is a Very Good Thing, even setting aside the license.

    There are many technically interesting applications for LLVM that gcc is not in a similar...

    Also, any idea how long it might take to get the register/assembly specs through? Since this is a much greater change from VLIW5->4, I could see it taking a while...

    I was hoping Michael was/is talking about PowerVR drivers... I don't see how Llano drivers can be that ironic even in that context, AMD's been good about such things lately.

    Also, this is a clean way to use excess video card memory.

    In this case, a rising tide lifts both boats... and things like this will make it easier to get new hardware working quickly.

    Release day drivers depend on vendors really - intel completely blew...

    Centos 3'd make a lot of sense actually for these kinds of things.

    Sadly since all-intel systems tended to work better in the first place, and so many P4/Athlon-era boards have died of bad caps......

    Keeping code continuity where possible is a Really Good Thing, actually. Having a nice bridge release between 2.30 and 3.00 will make it easier on everyone to migrate - KDE 4.0 changed far, far too...

    Yeah - it's like some memory settings are being handled wrong.

    Since there are unified graphics shaders it might make sense to do vertex shading (up to a point) on the CPU, too...
  13. Are there any 2.4/old-XFree distros out there...

    Are there any 2.4/old-XFree distros out there that are even vaguely security-patched? RH 6.2 was pretty bad when it was new, IIRC.

    Maybe it's time for a hybrid old/new distribution, but that's...

    If AMD is like nVidia (and vice versa) - where can I get .pdf register and programming docs for Fermi? (/me waits)

    Yeah - only the Voodoo 4 AGP supports 1.5V, so even if you could fit most 3Dfx cards in a Pentium 4 or newer Bad Things will happen.

    Dropping GF2 support from 9x.xx was rather arbitrary - GF4MX is based off GF2MX, which has even fewer features IIRC.

    ATI dropped support for <Radeon X/HD 2xxx hardware in Windows - even now you...

    Gallium basically requires a DX9 level card, so one'll need at least a i915 (someday), fx5200 or r9500. Noueavu devs were planning on getting it working on pre-DX9 nVidia chips but punted and made a...

    Yeah - any of those three are probably quite usable.

    And configuring a 128MB ramzswap on 10.04 or 10.10's likely to help desktop performance w/512MB ram.

    The r9200's a questionable choice...

    Yeah, X11 has a lot of cruft for today's code, but that today's code *can* run on it's a nice thing and actually validates the original design. ;)

    Since Gallium3D is only for DX9-level cards and up, the Gallium3D state tracker will be able to use more programmable features than the regular OpenGL backend, and without the overhead of producing...
