For desktop computing (i.e.: GUIs) the display server and the protocol it uses is probably the most important thing ever. it determines the state of driver support for video cards.
Mir uses its...
Staging is for experimental stuff isn't it?
So why is an obsolete driver being pushed to staging instead of being marked as (DEPRECATED) or (OBSOLETE) in the sources?
Just to go off on a tangent:
Bolded parts aren't true. Fluoridation does not do anything to make water 'cleaner' or more potable. It is done simply because it is a very cost effective way of...
By slow, you mean slow to detect and authenticate with SSIDs?
That writeup, if it can even be considered as such, is full of nonsense.
Lunar New Year (aka Chinese New Year) is just 6 days away.
IIRC, some of the patches were mainlined but a huge chunk still isnt.
Generally i don't think the kernel will be Clang-compatible for the forseeable future until Linus and his crew actually makes...
Hopefully it won't be long before the entire Linux stack from kernel to libraries and drivers and userland applications are made clang compatible.
Off the top of my head,
- AMD GPUs newer than Sea Islands
- Intel GPUs newer than those found in Ivy Bridge
- A huge chunk of printers
- A HUGE chunk of WiFi cards and usb WiFi adapters
You still need java to build the thing. The last git clone i did about 2 weeks ago errored durinf the build process due to no jdk being found
I hve not tried the --without-java option in the...
Then put your money where your mouth is and use Hurd.
Can't do it?
Then keep quiet.
This about sums it up.
It's public knowledge in here that I do not like the GPL; i tolerate it because of its usefulness in software improvement and development. Same way Linus Torvarlds chose GPL...
OS X is Single-UNIX certified; do you see any OS X software working on Linux or other UNIXes like BSDs?
There's no such thing is portability anymore; deal with it. Developers love to make...
Just had a look at the mailing list; seems like Stefan has (very politely) told RMS to sod off with his opinions because he has no intention of entertaining them:
Y'know, at this point of time even Windows and OS X are better choices. At least they are governed by people who know how to cater to users and developers alike.
Anyway, if it is of any...
Unfortunately there's still too much reliance on GNU stuff. We still need GCC for building tons of applications (especially the upstream kernel, which is still not fully Clang-ready) and asking...
Nvidia likes working with Nouveau? That's nice.
In return, how about Nvidia return the favor and finally get down to seeding the signed firmware blobs to the upstream firmware tree for Maxwell and...
I use Windows Phone.
Doesn't support GPU acceleration and the cellular modems?
Then it's more useless than useless.
