    This just in: bug in ancient glibc version found. Due to misinformation, much panic ensues, but in the end nobody cares.


    qt-sql wants to link to the mysql client libraries. Unless you can set...
  2. Funny enough, unison...

    Funny enough, unison is the name of an awesome bidirectional file synchronizer.


    rsync is only useful for synchronization when you have a "master" copy and a "clone".

    So how do you install Fedora on remote, headless machines? On my gentoo installs, I'm pretty glad I have remote root login until I'm far enough with the setup that I can add user accounts, install...

    Sure, but then you don't want a relational database with iterator-based operators, you'll need something that implements batch processing. Take a look at column stores. I'm not aware of any running...

    I'm pretty sure his suggestion of using GPU memory as an additional cache refers to capacity, not bandwidth.

    Of course there are situations were the DB gets bottlenecked by memory bandwidth. But...

    We have a winner.

    In many types of queries, compiling GPU kernels and routing data through your GPU only serves to slow things down even further. GPU accelerated query processing (or even FPGA...

    Here's proof that the CPU's internal RNG cannot be trusted. I've compared the random numbers from this SD card with the random numbers from my CPU.

    They were different.

    thanks for the clarification!

    Going by the commit, it looks like 32bit support had already been implemented, but was now.. not even removed, just disabled. 32bit processes are not allowed to open the device.

    Sure, all AMD HSA...

    Try actually using the pivot function, I doubt you'll find the viewing angles adequate after that. :)

    I guess it's a good bargain for someone who does only text-heavy office work, but I wouldn't...

    I don't see why it wouldn't work, but I haven't tried.


    Only if the application supports it, and I doubt many do. Buffer migration between different opencl implementations is not cheap. Your best...

    Yes. Gentoo has a group called "games", and games from portage are only readable/executable for users who belong to that group. It's a bit silly, but it's there.

    Having to pre-compile my openCL code is a bit of a nuisance when I'm dynamically generating the openCL code at runtime, but I'm excited nevertheless.

    Hoping for a compliant libOpenCL.so in the not...

    There are plenty of glide->opengl wrappers that can run glide games. Since performance is not a problem for old glide games, I don't see why one...

    Fair enough.

    mostly. I don't trust michael's headlines, so I checked the project's website. I still don't know why I'd want it, and the examples I checked didn't strike me as particularly...
