Phoronix IRC Log: 2008-10-26
Kano: hi michaellarabel , did you ever test that voodoo ios variant of splashtop?
Kano: on read hw this thing is open as usual...
Kano: port 1080 apache gives you full access to win hd for all the network
Kano: extra funny is the 1.0 download on the webpage
Kano: there all nic modules are removed
Kano: and ndiswrapper is used for wifi
Kano: for 4965
michaellarabel: Kano, no, I have no voodoo PC.
Kano: you dont need to ;)
michaellarabel: I know, but that's the only way I would take the time to check it out.
Kano: it works just like express gate in a vm. just you have to reuse the old ce_bz header (first 1536) from splashtop to put in front on cefull
Kano: do you have got a laptop with 4965?
Kano: did splashtop boot there?
michaellarabel: Didn't try
Kano: well you have to be able to disable ahci in bios i guess
mrintegr1ty: lo guys
mrintegr1ty: can anyone advise me if this is a good board to use for a linux htpc? http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/motherboards/dg45id/dg45id-overview.htm I want it to be able to display full 1080p recordings
mrintegr1ty: i am so utterly baffled by all this stuff now :D
mrintegr1ty: I was about to buy it but read a bad review
Kano: well i think it has no legacy ps2 ports,but when you like usb then why not
mrintegr1ty: yeah ps2 doesn't matter
Kano: i guess you could use ubuntu 8.10, maybe update the intel video driver
mrintegr1ty: but h264 support.. can that be done with xvmc on intel hardware yet?
Kano: forget it
Kano: there is n h264 acc
Kano: buy fast enough cpu
mrintegr1ty: quad core intel?
Kano: dont know if quad is best or better higher clocked dual for h264
maligor: there's no ISA ports?
maligor: (read: Who the heck uses ps2 anymore?) :P
maligor: I think intel is one of the developers in vaapi
maligor: Their decoder hw isn't as good as nvidia/ati from what I've seen in benchmarks tho
maligor: or fast rather
ZeroHour: anyone using phoronix in gentoo? I don't quite understand how to properly use the ebuild it seems
redeeman: mrintegr1ty: dualcore intel for H264
redeeman: mrintegr1ty: an E8500 will do it
michaellarabel: ZeroHour: For Phoronix Test Suite? Ivanovic can answer your questions
michaellarabel: If you don't want to use the ebuild, you can just run it normally by extracting it and then running phoronix-test-suite with your arguments
redeeman: don't forget to install it's dependencies though
michaellarabel: redeeman: It will automatically do that on Gentoo
michaellarabel: aside from php cli
redeeman: also 'time' ?
redeeman: also, not all runs it as root
redeeman: and without knowing this, you should be a tad careful about simply issuing emerge commands - some people might not be using emerge, but rather paludis
redeeman: or pkgcore
ZeroHour: well if i just the src will it be based in it's own folder or is it going to add anything to /usr/* or any other dir?
michaellarabel: ZeroHour: If you run it within its own directory, nothing will be installed to /usr/
michaellarabel: redeeman: time is no longer needed with PTS 1.4+
ZeroHour: michaellarabel, it's not going to affect reliability or functionality wether its run from within it's own dir or not correct?
michaellarabel: you're fine running from own directory
