  1. IMO it would be much better to see working OpenCL...

    IMO it would be much better to see working OpenCL in MESA. This AMP stuff sounds really overcomplicated. And Microsoft around? Hmm, no, thanks.
  2. It would not happen this way, but if there will...

    It would not happen this way, but if there will be demand, some day someone can try to create driver like it happened with EXT4. However, btrfs is far more complicated and so it is less likely to...
  3. It is R600_DEBUG=hyperz environment variable....

    It is R600_DEBUG=hyperz environment variable. However, this method is not anyhow user-friendly. For good user experience things should work reasonably by default. Not after you've spent some time to...

    Catalyst driver suxx for sure. On other hand, opensource driver does works quite decent on HD5xxx series these days. Especially if you use things like oibaf PPA.
  5. I do not welcome blobs at all. However, there're...

    I do not welcome blobs at all. However, there're different kinds of them. Some could be tolerated. Some are unconditionally fatal and I can consider them as showstopper. This depends on system...

    I would agree it is clusterfuck when it comes to all this cheating with shaders. Actually looks like people all around got really fed up with all this crap to degree where OpenGL Next (and...
  7. If we talk about embedded, Nvidia actually...

    If we talk about embedded, Nvidia actually released opensource driver for Tegra if I remember correctly. Probably Tegra is one of first of embedded ICs with opensource GPU drivers. I wish Nvidia...

    I know about it. But...
    1) Its server-only. OTOH I do not see why decent CoW with snapshots is bad for desktops. Just imagine: you've deleted directory with photos by mistake. Or, even worse,...
  9. Windows and MacOS X are permitting to have very...

    Windows and MacOS X are permitting to have very restrictive EULAs in software, far more restrictive than any GPL and somesuch. So there shouldn't be issues with 3rd party drivers, etc. Say, there is...

    Unless I messed something up, this messasge comes from LLVM. Hence it seems to be LLVM bug.


    There is no mission to "spread FUD". But now we have some third-rate library which is a real headache...
  11. Of course I'm not, BUT I guess its possible to do...

    Of course I'm not, BUT I guess its possible to do it like this (assuming worst case: its both GPU dependent and program dependent): widespread test of certain GPU to decide if Hyper-Z is enabled by...
  12. What about enabling hyper-z for known-good scenarios? Or disabling it for known-bad?

    If I remember, MESA is basically capable to use different settings for different apps. What about disabling known-bad cases or enabling known good ones as a measure to speed things up for usual users...

    Sure, there're no bugs. Except GPU deadlock/blatant stderr flood on AMD GPUs.

    Sure. there're no release blockers. Except THIS LITTLE AND EASY TO REPRODUCE CRAP which is known to exist for a while. At least it floods stderr to the hell with internal LLVM errors and then GPU...
  14. IMO LLVM suxx.

    IMO LLVM just suxx. AMD devs spent over 2 years on their LLVM backend. And where any user-visible results out of all this stuff? On R600g it does not beats old in place shader backend and on RadeonSI...
  15. So, UFS story doomed to repeat itself another...

    So, UFS story doomed to repeat itself another time - now same would happen to ZFS. You can't just use "UFS" - there is about half dozen of different flavours, incompatible each other. So if BSD fans...

    But:
    1) It has been unstable for few years regardless of bold claims. Most notable "stable" filesystem in FBSD lacked correct sendfile() syscall support, causing heck a lot of deadlocks when some...

    As for changing license: Linux was here way before CDDL/ZFS and Sun probably intentionally made it incompatible with GPL in hope to reduce competition from Linux to their Solaris. But now we can see:...

    Good luck with it :).


    Interestingly I recently did such test with AMD GPUs of 57x0 series. And these proven to have at least some overheat protection. Thermal grease got dry and stopped doing...

    I prefer suspend-to-RAM on my notebook. Because storing and readin dozen and half gigz to slow notebook HDD each and every time system goes to powersave looks like really moron idea to me. And I...
  20. About swap files: ditch it forever.

    It could be much wise idea just add as much RAM as you can afford and forget swap files/partitions, preferrably forever. Dozen and half of gigz RAM would usually do without swap file at all. Needless...
