Phoronix IRC Log: 2009-10-12
LordHavoc: bkero: it was a long time ago, before DRI2 existed
LordHavoc: bkero: and yes, I'm pretty sure the API docs were under NDA, and register specs were completely unavailable even under NDA, so understandably the DRI team had no interest
bkero: So they're still assholes
LordHavoc: bkero: I was citing it as an example of NVIDIA being completely unreasonable
LordHavoc: whenever there are good full featured radeonhd drivers I'll probably stop buying nvidia cards entirely
LordHavoc: I don't like secret, and it even affects me as a game developer - if I could profile the libGL it would help
LordHavoc: (profiling the kernel component would be nice, too, but that requires oprofile, which I've never gotten to cooperate)
LordHavoc: or rather, I got oprofile to cooperate once, a couple years ago, and never again - but it is remarkably good at filling my root drive :P
LordHavoc: I like what I've seen of the nouveau project, however they'll always be at a disadvantage compared to any other driver project where the vendor does release specs
GNU\colossus: LordHavoc: it's from Apple, so -by definition - it has to be a FAN-TAS-TIC feature, actually
PetoKraus: hello guys, just a wee question for you
PetoKraus: what quiet PSU would you reccomend for me? I'm looking for someting cheap as well...
bkero: Ask the silentpcreview folks
Yaroze: PetoKraus: Be Quiet! ones are usually pretty quiet and good :)
PetoKraus: right. How does one launch the phoronix-test-suite gui?:)
maligor: cheap aren't good
maligor: high efficency psu's would probably be relatively quiet
bkero: Cheap can be fine. You just have to do your homework.
bkero: and expensive power supplies aren't necessarily efficient.
maligor: no, but there are some that are
blm: when you do the iozone and memory tests with a different set of RAM modules, do you have to re-build the tests so they fit the new memory size?
