    Grim Fandago Remastered with OSS drivers

    Hey everyone,

    I'm pondering to buy Grim Fandango Remastered:

    http://www.gog.com/game/grim_fandango_remastered

    The page explicitly says that OSS AMD drivers are not supported. Does anyone...

    The ARM11 in the Pi has a pretty capable FPU as well. This isn't the first time I'm seeing people claim that it doesn't have an FPU. Where are you people getting that from?



    That's maximum...

    Do they? I just checked the donor list, and it doesn't look like they are short on donations at all. They have three "Uranium" sponsors apart from WhatsApp, each one donated at least 250K. Plus tons...

    In fact floating point support is a strong point of the Pi. ARM11 has a much beefier FPU than Cortex-A8.

    For video decoding and playback, VA-API is not better, neither on paper nor in practice. Especially the presentation layer of VA-API is extremely lacking.

    There's just one thing: VA-API supports...

    Please read the spec for NV_vdpau_interop. The extension exposes video surfaces as separate fields. So the video decoder either needs to output fields directly or the frames have to be split up.
  8. Yes. Like I said, the API is field-based, and...

    Yes. Like I said, the API is field-based, and field output apparently isn't supported by those old R600 GPUs. I guess it should be possible to make this work with some additional overhead (buffer...

    VDPAU-GL interop is required for some software that implements custom video postprocessing or scaling, like XBMC or mpv. The interop API is based on fields, even for progressive content.

    Patches for r600g and radeonsi already exist and work fine, someone was just quicker to push it out. :)

    It can generate code for R600-class hardware, yes. Whether it can really handle it properly is up for debate. ;)

    Nah. Hardware (if anyone makes some) isn't going to be cheap due to low volume. If you want to start with driver development, look at the popular choices like AMD and Intel.

    In fact, it has already supported IPv6 for some years... since 2010 or so.

    Well, Debian doesn't clearly communicate how they want to go about LTS releases, so this is easy to understand from Spotify's point of view.

    Yeah, the china knockoff boards are hopeless... zero support. However, none of the Allwinner boards come close to the level of the Pi in terms of support and the amount of functionality that actually...

    No, this is unrelated to OpenCL. It's disabled by default because it's somewhat broken.

    Clover OpenCL development is pretty slow. Not much is happening right now, so it's hard to believe anything substantial will change in the next couple of months. I regularly test it, and I can...

    It's you (and Fedora) that want to ignore upstream. The OpenCL implementation is still very much work in progress, Mesa doesn't claim to even support OpenCL 1.0 properly. Frontend API support is...

    Wait, so you're saying Canonical should ship Mesa's OpenCL implementation, but knowing that it is not functional they should make sure that they disable OpenCL in the apps that they ship? That's...

    That's seriously wrong. A broken implementation is worse than no implementation. Applications that try to use Mesa OpenCL will most likely crash. And worse, if there's a bug in the backend, it might...
