    Isn't it "NaCl"...? When read in Spanish, be the last letter a lowercase "l" or a capital "I", it sounds like "nazi".

    Catalyst used to comprise a kernel module (named fglrx, I believe) and some userspace components, while the open stack had a kernel DRM driver called radeon and several userspace components. In the...
  3. XRender, which EXA, UXA, SNA, and GLAMOR -among...

    XRender, which EXA, UXA, SNA, and GLAMOR -among others- implement, is a dead end, because -as its name suggests- it's tied to X, and [because] it's the server who, in behalf of the client, draws....
  4. Wayland doesn't support any rendering API by...

    Wayland doesn't support any rendering API by itself, neither 2D nor 3D - it glues applications, which render using whatever method they prefer, and the compositor, which puts what they draw on the...

    It seems like reinventing the wheel. Why don't they use a fullscreen Wayland compositor, and add support for the wl_fullscreen_shell protocol? AFAIK, Weston already implements it.
  6. Without considering NVIDIA hardware limitations...

    Without considering NVIDIA hardware limitations or whether Mantle is tied to AMD hardware, since the Nouveau Mesa driver is based on Gallium3D, once the Mantle state tracker was added, it would just...

    (This is my understanding on the matter. Please, correct me if it's wrong.)

    In Mesa-Gallium3D, APIs such as OpenGL and OpenCL, among others, are implemented in state trackers, which turn...

    AFAIK, it would still be good to reserve memory for the GPU, so that there is less allocator overhead. I recall someone explained this a while ago, but I don't remember who nor where.
  9. Why are GNU dialects the default instead of...

    Why are GNU dialects the default instead of language standards? For projects using GNU extensions, switching the defaults to standards would make developers realise it, instead of inadvertently using...

    Thank you. The discussion and his patches are here. While this extension isn't important for desktop environments (they use OpenGL ES 2, AFAIK, so they don't need to specify a minor version number or...
  11. This bug...

    This bug may be related. In EGL versions prior to 1.5 (which Mesa does not implement), the EGL_KHR_create_context extension is needed to create contexts with a minor number (or other flags).

    Arch Linux is a binary distribution, as Fedora; its users can, but do not have to build anything. As for Fedora, I guess it wasn't enabled for legitimate reasons; after all, F2FS is not yet...

    On the second page, after the first OpenArena v0.8.8 graph, there's a mistake:



    It should be:



    Aside from that, it seems that only with a bare startx can the full performance be got. How...

    Thank you! To your list, I would add BIOS and UEFI implementations; especially in laptops, they tend to be pretty obscure. I guess it would still be prudent to search in the stored dmesg logs of...
  15. Component quality and failures

    Concerning computer components, are there any resources about recent hardware pieces covering their quality both at a hardware level and under Linux? It is very hard to keep up with open software...
  16. Thank you.

    Thank you.
  17. Why will Skylake be launched so quickly after...

    Why will Skylake be launched so quickly after Broadwell on the desktop side? How would it be worth it to get the later if the former would be available --reportedly, at least-- only some months later?
  18. The OpenCL API allows to retrieve the available...

    The OpenCL API allows to retrieve the available compute devices at runtime and to choose one of them [for each context], so it's up to each program to provide a way for the user to set up its...

    Yes. It's a possible application for gaming: let the iGPU, which is less powerful to render but enough for other things, and does not require slow bus transfers, do general computation (e.g.:...
  20. I am not sure, but I think you would still be...

    I am not sure, but I think you would still be able to use XWayland, because it uses the in-tree Glamor "DDX", which is not truly device-dependent. From http://wayland.freedesktop.org/xserver.html:
