bkero: and I'm done with public transit
GNU\colossus: hi folks
GNU\colossus: Deanjo, you might be the man to know the answer to this: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14550
Deanjo: Sounds like he has to adjust his screen saver
GNU\colossus: he = me :)
GNU\colossus: no screensaver running
Deanjo: Any powersave daemon running?
GNU\colossus: it's plain xorg, not even a wm running. just a fullscreen program using xine
GNU\colossus: as its backend
Deanjo: OK, not sure then.
GNU\colossus: is there any kind of "load detection" on the DVI-port?
Deanjo: Have you tried the 180 series drivers to eliminate that?
GNU\colossus: no, as it isn't in my distro_s repos as of today
Deanjo: Well you would have to it the manual install way
Deanjo: using the nvidia script
GNU\colossus: hmm I'll try that tomorrow, if there aren't any other suggestions popping up
GNU\colossus: thanks a bunch
Deanjo: Sorry I could be of much more help
rramalho: deseja Optimo XMas para todos
Kano: hi michaellarabel , some speed problems on xmas?
michaellarabel: Kano: what?
Kano: the forum is slow as hell
michaellarabel: I'll give the server a reboot.
Kano: maybe a google bot
Kano: now it is a faster again
michaellarabel: Oops, too late, rebooting now. I'd been meaning to reboot anyways.
Kano: server is fine again
Kano: but i guess the addserver is not
Kano: maybe depending on the add it wants to serve it is delayed
Kano: The latest stable version of the Linux kernel is: 2.6.28 2008-12-24 23:45
Kano: did you see this?
Kano: at least my little alsa patch was added in time. but i still have nfs issues
Roberth: is it just me or does the linux kernel suck big time to schedule applications that uses multiple threads?
Roberth: for me it seems like its fully loads one thread on gives all the other threads barely any load
Kano: dont you think thats app specific?
Roberth: for example mplayer with the ffmpeg multithreaded branch
Kano: because one thread has to wait for others to sync
Roberth: Kano: well then whats the point of making apps multithreaded?
Kano: more responsiveness, when you run the gui as thread
Roberth: hmm well then using multithreading mplayer wont give me much benefits since it cant share the load over the cpu cores
Kano: well usually only h264 would be multihreaded i guess
Kano: the problem with mplayer was just always that when you use gmplayer it can be out of sync
Kano: it is not trivial to split it right
Kano: external gui like smplayer was usually better if you need a gui
fow: Has anyone here taken the 2.6.28 plunge?
fow: preferably someone who wants GEM as badly as I do
