Phoronix IRC Log: 2010-07-02
pike: be cool if you would investigate this, let's call it a followup on an old article :)
pike: seems there would be talk about flash and vdpau is this was the case
pike: and which vdpau / nvidia driver rev is needed ?
pike: ok, Im confused, I thought Adobe flash 10.1 for linux was the new release. seems it's quite old ? http://forums.adobe.com/message/2400965#2400965 and definetely lacking hw accel under linux
saras: so you think eve will run nivida with open drives
Sleepy_Coder: hmm steam update
Sleepy_Coder: er... at least a slew of bugfixes for the mac.
Sleepy_Coder: seems like they changed it so you can't `setinfo name whatever' in CS:S
Sleepy_Coder: I found I couldn't do that in TF2 or L4D2 anymore, also
Sleepy_Coder: Huge 750MB~ update for CS:S
FliPPeh: It's freaking 34 °C outside
GNU\colossus: it's 22°C in here. air condition ftw.
FliPPeh: I live in germany, everything above 25 °C HURTS
FliPPeh: Best purchase ever: USB Fan
wao: btw, irc renesance will come
wao: through node.js
Sleepy_Coder: FliPPeh: It was 39C here last weekend :p
giselher: 29,1 C here in Lower Austria
The_Muh: too hot here
The_Muh: 27°C indoor
AstralStorm: The_Muh, that's not hot, that's nicely warm
AstralStorm: actually, 24 C is better, but it's within tolerances
The_Muh: >20°C = too got
FliPPeh: For germany, everything over 30C is too much in my opinion :/
AstralStorm: The_Muh, lol what?
AstralStorm: are you one of those cold fish northerners? (e.g. finland)
The_Muh: <- german
AstralStorm: still why >20 C = hot. 24 C is the optimal temperature for humans
AstralStorm: unless you're not human...
The_Muh: i have Psoriasis when its too hot or in the sun its ... creepy...
The_Muh: begins at >20°C
Tigge: The_Muh: isn't usually the opposite?
The_Muh: Tigge: usally, yes
The_Muh: i know 3 other people who has it like me
The_Muh: hmm... damn sun
The_Muh: want to buy CS:S... but the sun...
FliPPeh: Stay inside
FliPPeh: Buy it in steam
FliPPeh: That's what I did.
The_Muh: FliPPeh: no virtual money
AstralStorm: The_Muh, that's sunlight sensitivity
The_Muh: _no_ virtual money ^^'
AstralStorm: affected skin is sensitive
FliPPeh: Principles are principles
The_Muh: neither paypal, nor at the bank
AstralStorm: btw, this autoimmune disorder is treatable
AstralStorm: go ask you doctor
FliPPeh: The_Muh: Unless you want a severly crippled version, you should buy it in austria or something
The_Muh: the doctor said "Psoriasis"
The_Muh: i know the german version
FliPPeh: The whole censoring stuff is bullshit
FliPPeh: I'm 20 years old, if I want blood, I WANT blood
The_Muh: should i bike to the supermarket in the next village or not...
The_Muh: damn weather...
FliPPeh: Sun is fine, but this is too much
FliPPeh: 32.4 °C now
AstralStorm: FliPPeh, yeah, it's extra ridiculous once they start showing bloody and agressive shows in TV
The_Muh: thats y i'm dont believe in god xD
AstralStorm: and they do, all the time
AstralStorm: The_Muh, do you believe in sun? ;)
The_Muh: i KNOW there is a sun... so i dont have to believe
AstralStorm: anyway, psoriasis is manageable and even sometimes treatable... although the treatment is fairly horrible local immunosupression (methotrexate afair)
AstralStorm: at least that works
FliPPeh: AstralStorm: They always pick the most sterotype looking scenes in movies
FliPPeh: Both when it comes to brutal games and computer sabotage
FliPPeh: They always take images of IRC to explain how crackers communicate :(
The_Muh: someone have a gift-code for CS:S? so i dont have to go outside
FliPPeh: Lemme see
AstralStorm: FliPPeh, that's actually true
AstralStorm: crackers do use IRC
FliPPeh: Yes, they do
FliPPeh: But also ICQ
AstralStorm: less often, these are harder to set up as botnets
FliPPeh: The_Muh: Where do I see my gift codes?
The_Muh: i dunno ^^'
FliPPeh: This still makes me lol.
pike: be cool if phoronix could write a followup piece on http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=NzU5OA Firstly 10.1 didn't add hw accel under linux right ? Secondly, does Adobe plan to ever add this support ? Thirdy if so, when
FliPPeh: I think Adobe gives a shit on Linux support.
FliPPeh: They discontinued the 64 bit branch
FliPPeh: I'm happy once flash dies
h4emp3ror: hey there
h4emp3ror: has anybody tested 2 nvidia cards with sli and vdpau to play one video with 7680x1080 (4x full-hd) on 4 different monitors with xinerama?
FliPPeh: 2 Monitors!
FliPPeh: Uhh, sweet women on youtube giving linux advice
FliPPeh: If I wasn't a linux user already, I'd be switching now
h4emp3ror: FliPPeh: is 2 monitors the max possible or what you've tested?
FliPPeh: The maximum I can do here with my single graphic card
FliPPeh: And the maximum amount of monitors I have
h4emp3ror: i see ;)
FliPPeh: But it is very possible to have the many monitors
h4emp3ror: and doesn't interfere with xinerama and/or vdpau?
FliPPeh: I don't know what VDPAU is :(
FliPPeh: But that's what Xinerama was made for
FliPPeh: Monitor spam
h4emp3ror: vdpau is video decoding with nvidia graphic cards
FliPPeh: I'm happy with 2 :)
FliPPeh: I don't think it should interfere
FliPPeh: But that's just a wild guess from someone who has no clue
h4emp3ror: ok, that's what i'm thinkin' too
FliPPeh: I suppose if it was made to work with multiple GPUs...
FliPPeh: And if it was NOT made for multiple GPUs, it will just work with one I guess, just like the multicore things
h4emp3ror: the only thing that makes me wondering is if in multimonitor sli mode the vdpau is only working on the master card
pike: something else Phoronix might want to investigate, whats happening with the vdpau chipsets for desktop cpu's? 8200/8300/9300/9400. When I checked newegg there wasn't many at all.
pike: And the atom cpu in ION(1) might also soon be out of stock, or maybe not, since theres no ION2 motherboard yet
Kano: hi, anybody using intel hd graphics?
Daekdroom: Hell. My iPod touch is broken :S
FliPPeh_: Get a real mp3 player now :D
tkmorris: a GNU/Linux based one :P
Daekdroom: No cash..
Daekdroom: and I won't get one as a gift..
Daekdroom: Well, I know it is broken but I don't know how much.
Daekdroom: Its screen cracked, but I haven't actually seen it because it happened at the very same time I lost it.
mikeplus64: There are around 7 ads on any phoronix article. :[
FliPPeh_: In soviet russia, there news on your ads page.
Daekdroom: FliPPeh_, I don't think there were any sort of ads in Soviet Russia other than governement's..
Daekdroom: Because it wasn't, y'know, capitalist..
tkmorris: there was coke
tkmorris: I don't know about ads
tkmorris: but it was for sale
tkmorris: and bought most competitors
Daekdroom: $*%$*% Even those socialist bastards sold themselves out.
nyxkn: now what the hell is this mode i always happen to accidentally trigger that keeps the cursor still while inserting characters on the right
nyxkn: damn kate
