Phoronix IRC Log: 2009-03-24
raevol: Ryan C Gordon commenting on UT3 linux port
raevol: he says he can't comment why it's not being released, but that "it will be released"
SlickMcRunfast: like the Duke
raevol: oh man, we have another DNF don't we
raevol: well, savage 2 got released :) miracles can happen
raevol: oh shit, and some harsh words for WINE
raevol: fight fight!
SlickMcRunfast: raevol, very good article thanks for the link
superdump: did i mention that i've been having some networking issues in ubuntu intrepid with a forcedeth nic?
superdump: strange behaviours like ping resolves addresses but doesn't receive any responses
superdump: then all of a sudden it will again
superdump: and it stops and starts working randomly
redeeman: i believe i saw something relating to that in the .29 thread on lkml
redeeman: but i thought that only related to .29
redeeman: you should go read the thread
redeeman: it may be of interrest for you
superdump: i shall
redeeman: they also mention forcedeth
superdump: because it's an annoyance for my parents' machine and for me to keep having to try to fix it with no reproducible way of doing so or permanent fix
superdump: i guess this is with an older kernel though
redeeman: no offense, but you're insane to deploy ubuntu for your parents in the first place
superdump: why? it does everything they need to
superdump: all they need is web, e-mail and occasionally some office stuff
superdump: and i got fed up of fixing windows
redeeman: because of the insanely crappy quality control and weirdness stuff
redeeman: you'd have been much better off installing debian
redeeman: and then theres the biyearly breakages due to dist-upgrade that creates insane new issues
superdump: is there any better way of browsing the lkml .29 thread than on lkml.org?
superdump: this is kind of painful
maligor: is MultiView in fglrx only for FireGL?
rramalho: booooooooooassssssssssss! hhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiii! :D
maligor: so... OpenSL ES 1.0 supports audio, leds and vibrators? what sort of device they're trying to put it in, I wonder :P
redeeman: i wonder where michael is
redeeman: those openssl results on .29 has to be inaccurate
redeeman: they are not reproducable
redeeman: and make no sense whatsoever
Kano: yes, they look really weird
redeeman: i wonder if he mixed 32/64bit installs
Kano: 64 bit is faster with openssl thats clear
redeeman: the question is, could michael really have been so drunk as to mix 32bit and 64bit data?
bkero: Would 32/64 even make that big of difference in openssl?
Kano: hi michaellarabel, can we see the official results for your kernel comparison, some results like openssl look like 64 bit while others could be 32 bit
Kano: redeeman: first test with 2.6.29 live: 87.87 with openssl+ E8400 stock
Kano: 64 bit
Kano: will test 2.6.28 soon
Kano: so tested 2.6.28 - 64 bit: 87.97
Kano: well not that much diff
Kano: will test 32 bit next
Kano: all tests running in live mode, fglrx installed, same usb stick...
Kano: saidly i dont have got a 2.6.29 32 bit yet
Kano: could somebody compare again with 32 bit?
Kano: 64 bit did not show any huge diff
Kano: michaellarabel: are you sure with your low benchmarks? i guess there must be another diff, maybe something running in the background or not the same system
Kano: michaellarabel: guess what, a test with 32 bit 2.6.28 shows only 35.50 with openssl
Kano: you must have used 32 bit for the other tests
Kano: your system description can not be correct
Kano: thats definitely 32 vs 64 bit
evocallaghan: michaellarabel: Howdy
michaellarabel: Kano: No, it was x86_64 during all testing. I am certain.
michaellarabel: Hi evocallaghan
Kano: michaellarabel: can not be, only 2.6.28 32 bit has such low results
evocallaghan: Acrobat 9.1 for Solaris x86 came out today !
Kano: in openssl
michaellarabel: Kano: I even just double checked, it was definitely x86_64 throughout.
evocallaghan: At last we have Acrobat on Solaris x86 and not just SPARC
Kano: michaellarabel: the last round certainly, but didnt you reuse the older results from tests before
michaellarabel: What do you mean by reuse older results? All testing was done today (2.6.29) and the other kernels were tested this weekend.
Kano: michaellarabel: can you show the pts link
Kano: with the system specs please
evocallaghan: Any way, that was my short bit of news before I fall over into bed
michaellarabel: It's not on Phoronix Global right now, but can upload a screenshot of the system info.
Kano: the result files have em
evocallaghan: michaellarabel: It was more a heads up, don't know if its news your be interested to get 'out there'.
Kano: those are interesting
evocallaghan: Nigth night
Kano: michaellarabel: you can use the live images for 2.6.28+2.6.29 which i did, basically same speed 100%
Kano: or do you think u slows 2.6.28 down that much
Kano: i really never saw such speed differences before
Kano: usually 1-2%
Kano: not even the scheduler changed in the last kernels
Kano: better hw support of course
monte84: hey everyone
monte84: Does anyone know of a way that i can disable or remove xrandr?
