Kano: hi michaellarabel , do you also have got videos that crash with xvba?
Kano: hi redeeman
redeeman: i don't use xvba
Kano: hard to do without fglrx yes, but how about a critical review on phoronix about it
Kano: like crashes and bad colors...
Kano: i dislike that many buy ati cards and will be disappointed later
redeeman: yes, the reviews do not seem to portray reality
teprrr: hello there, has there been some changes in phoronix-test-suite a packager should be aware of? just wondering that for some reason fedora's newest one is 1.8, any troubles with newer releases or..? :P
michaellarabel: teprrr: It should be pretty much the same.... Please contact the Fedora maintainer and tell him to update
teprrr: michaellarabel, ye, mailed him after upgraded a package myself..
michaellarabel: Thanks! Unfortunate to see Fedora's package get out of date.
teprrr: hm, gtk is the only gui there, right? weirdly enough the package .spec file has qt4-devel as a dependency :P
michaellarabel: Right, php-gtk is needed for the GUI. If you can get that packaged for Fedora it would be amazing.
michaellarabel: Or are you talking about qt4-devel as a dependency for the phoronix-test-suite spec? If so, the way Fedora's RPM works is it includes all PTS external dependencies for tests...
michaellarabel: If you look on the Red Hat BugZilla for phoronix-test-suite you should find the discussion
teprrr: yup, looks like it isn't packaged, but there's some package available found via google
teprrr: ahh, yeah.. will take a look
teprrr: yup, looks like some troubles with php-gtk and php5.3
michaellarabel: Ugh, that's unfortunate.
teprrr: ye, I'll try to build it and see if it would be possible to get it in
teprrr: yay, with 2.2 x11perf tests seem to work.. didn't do with 1.8 :P
