    Perhaps it would be worth talking to the AdBlock people to get Phoronix on their list of "non-intrusive advertising".
  2. It will be useful (or not) to Linux only insofar...

    It will be useful (or not) to Linux only insofar as it provides additional test coverage. Regarding user space and kernel space, code and the way it works is largely independent of which of those...
  3. Device driver environment

    A couple of things I was wondering about your DDE - have you made any attempt at getting other small OS projects to make use of it too, so as to spread maintenance and testing work? And have you...

    If you take a wee peek at the xorg-devel archives, you will see that this is not even Chase's first upstream contribution on behalf of Canonical. (Hint: multitouch.)

    Certainly, but we already have the situation where the DDX driver and the KMS driver are working in tandem. Naively I would imagine that acceleration in the DDX driver could go through the DRI...
  6. Out of interest, what are the main reasons not to...

    Out of interest, what are the main reasons not to aim at a generic X.Org modesetting driver for typical "modern" hardware? Maintaining three hardware-specific drivers seems a bit wasteful.

    I know you are really right there, but there is still something inspiring about the Nouveau project. (And of course there are people who end up with nVidia hardware accidentally, or on a company...
  8. User support

    I remember a while back there was a pledge drive to try to organise money for paying for Nouveau's development which attracted a lot of people. I wonder if something similar couldn't be done again,...

    I would be interested if you could elaborate a bit. If you think it is too off-topic for this thread, you could also use e.g. the vbox-users-community@lists.sourceforge.net mailing list (I will...

    While I don't like the names that the kernel developers use, I can sympathise with them if they ask people to reproduce problems without vboxdrv loaded. Both the kernel and VirtualBox are highly...

    Just a quick(ish) comment as a member of the VirtualBox development team. I have only used VMWare a couple of times, so I won't comment on them or on comparisons to them (though I see that there are...

    Using this as an excuse to ask what is probably a rather basic question - why do modern graphics cards need such complicated heap management, rather than just say telling the kernel which areas of...

    Unless the software renderer can get a handle on the X connection (which does make some sense for GLX stuff anyway). VirtualBox does this.

    What can I say to that, given that we don't currently have (enough free developer) time for it either? :-)

    I would be interested to know whether it can run GNOME Shell (which will not even run with the old MESA software rasteriser). The speed would also be interesting to see of course - as far as I can...

    If you wait until it is done you might be waiting for quite a while. I assume that there is nothing in the Gallium archetecture that would require the use of Video RAM (at least not if a software...

    As far as I know VirtualBox does not yet put textures or anything else 3D-related in guest video RAM, instead sending them straight to the host from "normal" guest memory (which the host can of...

    I don't know how up-to-date it is, but http://www.x.org/wiki/DRI2 does not mention any particular duties of the DRM driver (just the module, which is the in-kernel bit). DRI1 requires a drm driver,...
