Phoronix IRC Log: 2009-07-08
Ivanovic: michaellarabel: your question about the xorg7.5 release schedule is 100% rethorical, isn't it?
evocallaghan: there is no such thing as a xorg release date. They just make it up when they feel like it.
carldani: michaellarabel: AMD just released docs for the SB700/SB710/SB750 southbridges.
michaellarabel: Thanks for the info carldani
carldani: We coreboot developers have been working with them for a few months to get this out the door and we're extremely happy
carldani: You're welcome, Michael.
maligor: oh, cool
carldani: I'll post an announcement mail to the coreboot list in a few minutes with the possibilities this opens for coreboot.
carldani: michaellarabel: do you want to be in BCC?
michaellarabel: Sure carldani
carldani: Will do
evocallaghan: Oh that is good !
Kano: Deanjo: pavlinux seems to be in phoronix not nvnews now ;)
Deanjo: He jsut posted there yesterday
Kano: Deanjo: i guess he wants to avoid banning by nv devs for the torrent link ;)
Deanjo: Meh it will be public soon enough anyways. Final tweaks to docs were made to Cuda docs today
Deanjo: "CUDA 2.3 is still on track for public release before then end of the month"
Deanjo: We will probably see 190.14 pop up at the end of the month as well as an official
Kano: i dont get why there is no new driver with 2.6.31 support for the latest cards, i can patch it easyly but why not release a new one...
Deanjo: 2.6.31 still isn't in a freeze yet so it's not surprising
Kano: 3 legacy drivers support it without patch
Deanjo: Why push a release when the kernel fucktards would probably break it again anyways before coming close to being final
Kano: then update the driver again
Deanjo: With a new official on the way at the end of the month I'm thinking they would just hang off till then
Deanjo: lol your getting spoiled with the weekly updates Kano
redeeman: the kernel people should break api if it gives them just the tiniest advantage
redeeman: nvidia will just have to adapt :P
Deanjo: As they always do
redeeman: its good
Kano: Deanjo: usally 3d drivers break in the beginning of a new kernel. rc2 should be relatively old for that already
Deanjo: not necessarily, remember when they removed crap thinking it would only break nv blob and then later had to put it back in for another kernel release at the last minute because it broke virtualbox too?
Kano: thats not the normal case
Kano: but some said that .32 will be a much huger change, so 3d dev have some more work
Deanjo: is still waiting for a linus "untested crap" pushback yet
Deanjo: Gotta have at least 1 quotable from him each kernel development cycle
Deanjo: heh, just saw what you were referring to Kano http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?p=81120#post81120
Kano: yes thats what i meant
Kano: i prefered the direct driver links but he removed em
Deanjo: lol that God takes $10 thread is taking on the life of a slashdot thread
Deanjo: So Kano, remember that whole "Can't find a damn decent satellite card" talk we had a while back? Well I bit the bullet and just subscribed to the telco's IPTV setup. No tuner needed, just a plain NIC spoofed to be a receiver.
Kano: no encryption?
Kano: that sounds too simple
Deanjo: Just a plain simple UDP stream
Deanjo: Hell even the m3u was already made lol http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Sasktel_IPTV_Saskatoon_Channels
Kano: i guess you need to have got the right ip to receive em
Kano: would a vpn be fast enough for that?
Deanjo: Ya, you have to subscribe
Deanjo: Not sure
