  1. Bug #'s?

    You forgot to link to the detailed bug reports you filed upstream on each of the issues you found.
  2. graph

    This is a development workflow graph, it's not a metric and should not be used to compare quality between drivers. There are several parameters used for generating this graph which make it...

    Er, not quite.

    Canonical isn't demanding anything, we're actually pretty flexible here. The VMWare guys want to make certain that mesa 7.12 is in Ubuntu 12.04, because that's what their driver...

    Someone came up to me Friday night during the UDS party to ask about rootless X.

    I thought he said, "Roomba Sex", and had to ask for clarification.

    Someone else at the table thought he said...

    "Is it just me who think that the X.Org shouldn't focus on a particular distro. This sounds as if Ubuntu is getting X.org to follow Ubuntu's pipe."

    No, you seem to be on crack. In terms of giving...
  6. Geez you guys are reading way too much into this.

    I'm seeing a weird meme here in this forum of "backporting is bad". It seems like people believe that by backporting some stuff to a given release, it makes that release less stable, and that moving...

    The amount of backseat driving that occurs on this forum is crazy.

    Timo posted a proposal to the ubuntu-x@ mailing list. So far, no one has replied giving any feedback on his proposal. (I've...

    "However, with Ubuntu now looking for people to test out the proprietary ATI driver and emailing Pulido for instructions, it looks like they're getting ready to roll out an unreleased Catalyst driver...

    @colo, actually I did include a "drop to root prompt" option in the original implementation. Problem was that dropping to a root session without prompting for a password resulted in a security hole....

    Policy for xorg-edgers is no kernel updates, just X bits. For new kernels go to the kernel team's mainline ppa (links mentioned above in this thread).

    If you remember having 3D on your ATI card...

    No. Again, this is hand-wavy profit modeling. It's not like Blizzard is going, "OMG, it's too hard to program graphics on Linux, we can't support it." Rather, they're saying, "It's too hard to...
  13. Well, really he said the following (wildly...

    Well, really he said the following (wildly paraphrased):

    1. "Money means nothing to Canonical and they have an infinite amount of it so they should spend more of it." Canonical is a for-profit...

    We're short on billionaires actually. Please go become a billionaire, or perhaps convince one of your friends to become one. It can't be that hard, I'd be one it if I only had the time. Don't...

    It's not a matter of numbers. You can have an infinite number of developers and still not meet schedule, or have only 2 people and meet it on the date every time. It's a matter of priorities of...

    I'm waiting until after UDS to merge in the more extreme X changes like the new mesa, kms, intel 2.8, etc. If I break people's laptops right now, I won't get anything done at UDS. ;-)

    "Now the xf86-video-intel 2.7.0 is the latest stable. http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...il/045117.html"

    However, for Ubuntu we are already in final freeze for some days, so it is far too late...

    Fwiw, on my laptop (a Dell 1420 w/ i965 gfx), the "greedy" option has the effect of turning the compiz border shadows black and slowing the performance down severely. So YMMV.

    I would be very...

    Thanks for running these tests Michael.

    For arm-chairing -intel integration strategy, also keep in mind performance is just one parameter. Stability can be an even more important concern (ruling...

    Like whizse says, the -dbg symbols are shipped separately. We also have a tool called apport that catches crashes and uploads the core files (privately), which the retracer can use to generate the...
