    Since last year the default provider for virtual/ffmpeg in Gentoo has been changed to libav.

    Not sure why they did it but, like others have said before, Gentoo allows you to choose which one you...

    Most drivers can fry/brick the hardware they are supposed to manage. There was a few years ago a bug in an Intel network driver that bricked some cards. But there is no indication that this one is...

    By ABI changes you mean adding new functionality in a backwards compatible way? Otherwise, gcc did not break the C++ ABI since the 3.4 release. And yes, that breakage happened between minor releases,...

    1. Someone mentioned DDWRT as an alternative, that is not true. DDWRT is a restrictive binary blob on top of the Linux kernel. It might feel liberating if you switch from the crappy standard...

    I did try it, it complains my system is too slow to play it. I get the same on my desktop, an A10-7850K when using VDPAU, even though with XV it plains fine. Do yo use any special options? Other...

    According to vdpauinfo it's only capable of decoding H264 up to level 4.1 and 1920x1080@60 is level 4.2 so it might not be able to offload it at all, I'll give it a try anyway
  8. Power usage

    Hope nobody minds if I go a bit on topic on this old thread, but I think the article missed the essential about decode offloading. Lowering the CPU usage is a nice side-effect, but not the goal...

    The solaris was a headless server that only ran the app, the X server was on my local desktop running Gentoo Linux. And it was definately using KMS. Maybe you are confusing it with OpenGL indirect...

    I don't know where you got this, but it used to work verry well with the latest X server about 2 years ago when I last needed to run a stupid (Motif) app that only works on Solaris/SPARC64.

    I think he expects you to tell him something like "we went through 2 more iterations since last time you asked"

    Software falbacks don't cause BSoDs so this is unrelated. The certification process tests for stability, not performance and is done on binary blobs received from the vendors AFAIK, so I don't see...

    It's not Adobe that maintains/releases the PPAPI version, it's Google. And you can already get them (for use with Chromium) from dl.google.com, though that site is not browsable so to actually see...

    Feature levels do not mandate anything, if anything does mandate that it's Microsoft's policies. And I king of doubt that they actualy do. At least in the D3D8 days ATI used to lie about having HW...

    Kwin has 2 OpenGL backends, one for OpenGL 3 and one for OpenGL 2. I remember back in March when I just got my Kaveri system it also lacked hw 3d acceleration and Kwin had problems with the OpenGL 3...

    When building the radeon driver into the kernel (as opposed to building it as a module) you also need to include the firmware into the kernel image. Look here for instructions on how to do that and...

    You can't just install them all and let the driver handle it if the driver is built into the kernel. Then all required firmware must also be built into the kernel. And for that you have to specify...

    sqlite from 2007 is recent stuff. The first use of this tech that I am aware was in KDE 2 with the --enable-final argument to configure. But it looks like in those dark ages it didn't work so well so...

    Funny that a Gentoo developer claims the users don't care about build time. Though, in a way, it is true. I, as a Gentoo user, care less about the build time as about the memory usage. I have...
