    Wow, this is in two years. Is it really going to take this long to migrate? I'd say a few months should be enough to get it done. And they basically have most of the work already done in Fedora and...

    He hoped that T vs L discussion would end up with realizing that neither is practical with systemd as default and so upstart would have been chosen as default, as it is potentially portable to other...

    To me it's: use systemd for linux, and something else for BSD and Hurd variant. That's up to mantainers to vote on what they want.

    For the latter:
    Upstart might support non-Linux, but that's...

    The catchup game is accelerating now that the whole driver stack is getting better. Hopefully in some time they will be able to implement features which still aren't released in an official GL...

    They should switch to systemd. It's more mature and has more killer features. Upstart never lived up to the expectations. Let Ubuntu be left alone with their NIH. For kFreeBSD or whatever other Unix...

    One thing to suggest to Valve is to start blogging about what they are changing, and why, in their kernel and OS. It can also help with eventual upstreaming of their patches (that makes life easier...

    While you are correct, Wayland *can* support headless operation which can be streamed over network (through backend plugins).
    Given that there is a lot of client-side rendering, it won't be...

    I was reading the X12 list back in 2010. It is essentially a list of what has been done wrongly in X11. New protocol requires applications to be updated. So it's better to do with something like...

    SNA-enabled driver lives in Xorg and is optimized around the X protocol, I think it's mostly XRender, maybe more. It runs in the server process. The performance might not directly translate to...

    MS will be hostile because Mantle allows GPU cross-optimization between PS4 and Xbox One. Also it might allow simple + performant ports to Linux (Catalyst) once support is added, of games that are...

    In one of the replies, the guy asks why does the firmware allow a bare user to access anything on the hardware, including the physical memory of the system :) I hope it isn't that bad.

    Otherwise,...
  12. How to workaround

    Someone will read the code, write description of how the driver looks like, and smoebody's going to write a clean-room driver. Patent research would also help, if it's possible to workaround them.

    It looks as DRM interface to DMA-BUF, shared by drivers. Almost certainly it won't impose GPL requirement for usage, and so lets NVIDIA blob use DMA-BUF implicitly. It won't allow use cases of...

    My theory

    I believe there is a lot of optimized third party algorithtms/code that are licensed for closed source graphic stacks and this is why those perform better. This is probably also a reason why all...

    New rpm/deb nightmare incoming, but distros fortunately did have some practice with the x86/x86_64 multiarch support. Adding a third one is nothing fundamentally new.

    However I'd treat this...

    The mistake was that Wayland was submitted together with Xorg (Mesa is still OK IMHO). As it currently stands, the latter one will be slowly phased out and more interesting development will be in...

    PA doesn't use hw mixing by design, because many sound cards don't support it anyway and sw support allows full control over details like per-application volume, switching outputs, and now even echo...

    Interesting. If I understand correctly, VGEM could work for applications that want to do their own software rendering more efficiently because it provides a kernel RAM buffer directly (why can't such...

    OK, I misread. The emulator in question doesn't care because it emulates 16-bit code inside it's own process which is either 32 or 64-bit.

    Regarding native 16-bits, CPU in long (64-bit) mode...

    No, 16 bit mode has nothing to do wih it. 16 bit modes were supported on 32-bit x86 in a same sense as x86 (32bit) is supported in 64-bit mode on Intel/AMD processors. This emulator runs only as one...
