frinnstradeonhd has been a dead end for a couple of years now03:33
frinnstStatus 09/2010: Linux distributions, including Novell's openSUSE, have now abandoned radeonhd as the default driver, instead using the radeon driver. radeon has more features, including Kernel Mode-Setting support and more 3D support, and it supports all Radeon generation from original R100 Radeons to R800 Radeons (HD 5000 series). Radeonhd can be continued to be updated as long as there are people find it useful.03:34
juefrinnst: thanks, I'm a bit confused, though03:50
jueis radeon a binary driver?03:50
frinnstati = radeon03:50
jueah, I see03:50
frinnstradeonhd = another, dead, project03:50
frinnstati (used) to include support for all ati hardware, radeon is a driver under that umbrella03:51
jueI'll add a section 'cleanup xorg ports' to our TODO28, where we can add stuff like radeonhd03:52
frinnstyeah. i doubt anybody uses drivers like xorg-xf86-video-i128 etc :)03:53
juefrinnst: done initialy, feel free to add other stuff03:56
juefrinnst: ok to commit the new btrfs-progs?04:00
frinnstyeah, should be safe04:02
frinnsti've not heard of any issues04:03
frinnstadded  i128, mach64, nv, tdfx, voodoo  to the todo04:06
frinnstall of those sans "nv" are probably a non-brainer04:07
frinnstbut unsure about nv04:07
frinnstit is deprecated, no? but possible ppl still use it04:08
jueyeah, it is04:09
juebut I don't see a reason to use it as we have nouveau now04:09
frinnstdamn, its hard to really find out exactly what hardware the various drivers support :)04:10
jueat least nv builds with 1.1304:10
frinnstxorg-xf86-video-tga, xorg-xf86-video-ark, xorg-xf86-video-cirrus, xorg-xf86-video-geode, xorg-xf86-video-glint, xorg-xf86-video-neomagic, xorg-xf86-video-newport, xorg-xf86-video-openchrome, xorg-xf86-video-savage, xorg-xf86-video-siliconmotion, xorg-xf86-video-sis, xorg-xf86-video-trident, xorg-xf86-video-xgixp ? :)04:13
juehmm, according to the man pages, nv supports more cards than nouveau :(04:14
frinnstyeah.. stuff like tnt and early geforce are probably not supported in nouveau04:14
jueno, I mean newer cards like GeForce 8 and 904:15
frinnsti believe there are new drivers from xorg that we dont carry. iirc, i got an announcement for a kms-driver a while back04:15
frinnstoh. but they are supported in nv?04:16
jueyes, at least the man page say so04:16
juesounds like a useful addition04:20
juefrinnst: how about joining the xorg team? ;)04:21
Romsterhow good is nouveau on a 250gts any 3d acceleration at all yet?04:23
Romsteroh that my card is above a geforce9 i'm guessing it's a no go still...04:24
jueRomster: I think no, but should work again with new mesa, version 9 probably04:24
Romsterhow long do i have to wait for nouveau to do even the basics and let mesa3d do the rest in software.04:25
jueRomster: just try it, nouveau works really well for me04:25
Romsteri guess i can give it a spit last i tried it wouldn't even work but that was a good 6 months ago now.04:26
Romsteri'd get a ati card if i knew the open soruce driver was working in 3d04:27
Romsterotherwise i'm a nvidia person, unless intel step up now they got opengl certification for mesa standard04:27
Romsters/give it a spit/give it a spin04:28
jueyeah, please test it, might be that the man page is outdated and it works with newer cards04:30
frinnsti've only bought ati/amd since they started to release docs04:30
Romsteri'm waiting on who gets the 3d driver stable first and since nvidia driver works the best in wine so far i'll stick with that.04:33
jueRomster: well, a simple test wouldn't hurt and give us some more info about how/if nouveau works with newer cards, I have only a old GeForce 6600 here04:58
Romsterjue, yeah i'll try it later, i'm reading up and playing around with scrapy currently.05:00
juegreat, thanks :)05:01
Romstermoving my version sort up a notch and indexing pages.05:01
Romsteri also found this neat site
Romsterwish all projects did that.05:02

*** acrux has quit IRC05:07
frinnstjue: sure. I even offered after tilman left, but it fell on deaf ears so I took that as a subtile hint :D05:37
Romsteri drove tilman crazy not intentionally.05:48
Romstermust be a personality conflict with him i guess.05:48
juefrinnst: thanks ! added you to the xorg group05:49
frinnstso, who does what?05:50
frinnstI dont want to step on any toes :)05:50
jueyou can commit to our xrog repo ;)05:50
frinnstfree-for-all after a general consensus pretty much?05:51
jueyeah, I'd say so05:51
juethere was a mail form jaeger, in which he defines some general rules05:52
frinnstI'll look into it05:52
jueI'd say the modesetting driver is something we should add ...05:55
Romsteris there i don't i read that...05:56
Romsterwas looking at that and a copuple of emails from alan that i haven't done yet.05:57
Romsteri can't concentrate on any code atm... guess i'll just relax watch a movie or something06:02

pitillocan someone check libxslt 1.1.26 build with current libxml2 2.9.0? Here it breaks in a fresh 2.7.1 install inside a safe-crux (depinstalling xorg). Version 1.1.27 is building right20:13

*** mavrick61 has joined #crux-devel21:40
horrorStruckpitillo: it fails here too. 1.1.27 builds fine. also it seems there are a few CVE patches we should apply on 1.1.26 (looking at gentoo)22:15
