Ivanovic: michaellarabel: could you run a force update on PTS git?
Ivanovic: i seem to not get the latest files...
michaellarabel: IvanovicL updated
Ivanovic: nice list of changes that was not in before... http://pastebin.com/d460674ff
Milyardo: Ivanovic: How long until I can expect to see Wesnoth in PTS with a new tricked out photo realistic 3D engine? :)
michaellarabel: PTS Linux Live is running... now to just find some mirrors so we can make an alpha release soon!
michaellarabel: It's based off of Ubuntu, but already changed a fair amount.
njdoyle: does anyone here know if the opensource radeonhd drivers have 3d acceleration support for Radeon HD 3650?
mattmatteh: wonders why Lightkey 'lol'
Lightkey: I just looked at the X wiki
mattmatteh: and ... ?
Lightkey: I am easily amused?
mattmatteh: i still dont know what is funny
Lightkey: why do you think I would tell you?
Lightkey: njdoyle: anyway, it says there is experimental support, though "not for the faint of heart"
Lightkey: and the howto to install it says you should not use it as even the howto is not complete..
njdoyle: this is what I expected. I mostly just wanted to see how possible it was going to be to move to a kernel beyond 2.6.28 and still have 3d accelerations some how or another (fglrx or radeonhd)
Lightkey: it even got 2D acceleration! ... disabled by default
mattmatteh: Lightkey, ok. could have said that before. i had an hd3200 and it worked fine. i know not every chip is supported, but thought that was out for a while, and would be, and it is similar to hd3200 ?
Lightkey: mattmatteh: thanks for the info, you could have said that before :-)
njdoyle: he did, problem is that the conversation sorta migrated from #gentoo lol
mattmatteh: Lightkey, njdoyle asked a simple straigh forward answer. the only response was 'lol' , sorry but that seems kinda rude
Lightkey: das leben ist kein ponyhof
