Is Gallium driver bugged?
Comment 1 Richard Jasmin 2015-09-11 04:15:29 EDT
Notes: This world has existed for many a day.
Maybe we need a code review on the following package groups:
Gallium driver

TVision gave us a Windowy IDE.(some would calls this ncurses) People demoed the main core of it.BORLAND made good $$ off it. Look back at TC3. I dunno why gcc doesnt have a TUI IDE.There have been others made(RHIDE)...

People modified the Tvision code for graphics(GVision) <-- needs more testing.And for the most part we have been using the same code ever since.BUT HAVE WE? Does GTK/QT rely on this properly defined structure and OOP code? Or does it try to implement it some other way?


Fine seems to implement this somewhat ok, but the issue there is that there is no actual desktop manager and changing the menus is not easy.

Sorry, both the DE and the window manager (marco) seem incredibly slow.My Pentium of yesteryear can slap 100 windows on the screen, remove them all in mili-seconds. My 486 could do it.

So why is my GIGA-HERTZ SUPERCHARGED nearly overclocked system misdrawing and sttutering on this? My screens are tearing.This is just awful.

Maybe file previews need to be turned off? I can live with that.
We sure as hell dont need to exactly emulate windows file search "feature"(malware) when locate and find do the job WAY faster.

We need a SERIOUS LOOK SEE in this department.

I know kernels of late have ATI breakage.Some versions are showing issues beyond source build.We need to reject the code until it works PROPERLY.

3D and wobbly windows are nice(yeah....where is my wobbly windows?)but expensive to write code for.3D is enabled and running. So if we are using it, then WHY is it STUTTERING?

CMON people, I can do this shit in dos.REAL DOS. Why is it so hard in X11? Who bugged what and how do we take thier cookies and embarrass them?

If you want more info I will have to dig up some code, and well it aint written in C, so bear with me.I do have a few cheat sheets conversion units from my days of OS DEV attempts.
