Milyardo: michaellarabel: How good are you Debian packaging skills?
Kano: michaellarabel: i see that we need an extra command for nexuiz
Kano: because you do a chmod -w
Kano: why do you do that?
Milyardo: Good Morning #phoronix
Milyardo: michaellarabel: Have you seen the AA3 developer Blogs?
michaellarabel: Milyardo: No. Link?
Milyardo: I don't know if I'm the only one whos noticed or not
Milyardo: but you can very plainly see the Sound engnieer playing AA3 on a Mac
michaellarabel: Milyardo: Link :P
Milyardo: click on developer diaries
michaellarabel: then the sound engineer video?
michaellarabel: Where is he actually playing it on OS X? I just see a video of AA3 footage on the screen and audio programs
Milyardo: Let me look again
Milyardo: hrmmm... I'm going to download the 720p version maybe it just a video played in quicktime
michaellarabel: thats what it looked like to me
Milyardo: Yes, how disapppointing :(
Ivanovic: michaellarabel: the radeon rewrite branch in mesa, do you know what it is exectly meant to replace?
Ivanovic: is it "only" for r1xx to r3xx or is it meant for all the radeons (later on) till (atm) r7xx?
vadi2: Does an 'ati radeon HD 2400' have working drivers for linux (3d acceleration, compiz + movies), and what distro ships them? anyone know?
maligor: depends on distro policy
maligor: dunno about compiz + movies
maligor: fglrx provides decent 3d acceleration
vadi2: ok, well best "out of the box" experience on what distro?
maligor: dunno :P
maligor: "out of the box" experience will probably have to wait until they get the opensource drivers to consumer state
redeeman: i just installed kde 4.2 in a KVM
redeeman: which i view over VNC
redeeman: and it's totally smooth
redeeman: KDE 4.2 on host, with nvidia, NOT smooth
redeeman: this is really really sad
cxo: congrats michaellarabel with the ubuntu repo
michaellarabel: Thanks cxo
cxo: how many years has it been since you first started PTS?
michaellarabel: It depends how you define "PTS"
michaellarabel: I have had written a set of scripts to automate most Linux tests for 3~4 years, however, they were all in rudimentary form and not bridged together, etc. In regards to the Phoronix Test Suite like its available now, it's been just a bit over a year since initial work began on the public version.
