jonwilI think the problem is is that so many web sites use all kinds of crap in their HTML and hence rendering engines need to add support for it09:56
jonwili.e. its impossible to make a lean lightweight rendering engine that doesn't break half the web09:56
BostikSuperpelican: your memory probably is correct, and to the point, literal - "[...] WebKit *WAS* [...] lightweight [...]"09:59
Bostiknowadays it has the complexity of an operating system, if I'm any judge10:00

Bostikjonwil: I expect that some future CSS spec will have provisions to use the GLES2 system for visual effects; AFAIK currently that's limited to webgl canvases only but once those become staple for all engines, I don't really see why the capabilities wouldn't be further intermixed10:24

jonwilI wish the CoApp project would move forward, that project sounds great11:56
jonwilBeing able to install popular open-source programs and libraries native for windows easily is a great idea11:56
jonwilEspecially with its great visual studio integration11:56
jonwili.e. being able to install e.g. zlib and then open Visual C++ and just add #include <zlib.h> and know the environment has been updated to pick up zlib automatically :)11:57

Stskeepsheya vgrade, how is it going?15:19
vgradenot bad, just been sent a cubieboard15:20
Stskeepswhat's SoC was that?15:20
vgradegot a bit stuck on maliit but have some things to try. I think its the systemd, dbus interaction15:22
vgrademaliit server seems to think its already running when I try to start it15:23
Stskeepsi'm still hacking on the wayland on libhybris still.. so close but it's giving me grief15:23

poldowhy is Intel using a PowerVX gpu in its Medfield SoC instead of Intel HD Graphics (which has foss drivers)?16:18
dm8tbrpoldo: we wouldn't know, but maybe their IGP cores are not good enough for SoC type applications16:19
*** zalan has joined #mer16:22
*** Superpelican has joined #mer16:25
jonwilMy guess is that Intel GPU isn't good enough for use in such low-power environments16:26

SuperpelicanStskeeps:Which mobile ARM graphics are best supported on Linux? PowerVR SGX vs Mali vs Adreno18:23
Stskeepsadreno's not really18:23
Stskeepssgx and mali18:23
Stskeepsif you mean non-android18:24
*** XenGi is now known as XenGi_18:25
SuperpelicanStskeeps:I thought PowerVR was a complete hell18:25
SuperpelicanStskeeps:Yes, I meant non-Android (of course :P)18:25
Stskeepsyou're used to this kind of stuff on embedded18:26
Stskeepsit's more OK to have closed source EGL/GLESv2 libs18:26
Stskeepspowervr isn't bad18:26
SuperpelicanWell at least that's what I read on Phoronix18:27
SuperpelicanBut some people say Phoronix isn't that reliable18:27
Stskeepsphoronix isn't exactly a reliable..18:27
Stskeepsyeah, what you said18:27
SuperpelicanStskeeps:Well could you suggest me a nice Phoronix alternative :P18:27
SuperpelicanTo get my daily Linux news18:27
SuperpelicanBut I did read that there are already DRM kernel drivers for both Exynos (Mali) and PowerVR18:28
SuperpelicanBut what's the point of those if you don't get real hardware acceleration?18:28's good18:28
SuperpelicanStskeeps:I would also like to buy a Linux ARM board some day18:29
SuperpelicanWhich is the best choice when looking at graphics support also18:30
SuperpelicanI would prefer to run openSUSE on it18:30
SuperpelicanI read Beagleboard and Pandaboard are currently supported18:30
SuperpelicanBut those have a PowerVR GPU18:30
Jadedmali's support is not too good, but it's very very active18:30
Jadedthere's a lot of sunxi boards around with mali40018:31
SuperpelicanJaded: I know18:31
SuperpelicanThat's why I'm curious which ARM Graphics are better supported18:31
SuperpelicanMali or PowerVR18:31
Jadedpowervr is wayyyy more supported18:31
Jadedmali is very bare18:31
Jadedi have both here and mali is just.. horrible18:31
Jadedmight get better over the months, hopefully18:32
SuperpelicanJaded:But if you have no hardware acceleration, will you also have no openGL support?18:32
Jadedit will be software rendered, it will work but very slowly18:32
SuperpelicanJaded:So you're GPU is pretty useless actually18:33
SuperpelicanJaded:No Video decoding support, no openGL18:33
Jadedpowervr has decent 3d acceleration on linux18:33
Jadedyeah, for mali18:33
Jadedthe issue with sunxi is the video decoding uses a separate unit called CedarX, and the libs are all closed source18:33
Jadedso even with working mali400 drivers, there won't be any video decoding18:33
SuperpelicanJaded:Phoronix said PowerVR closed bin blob with open source DRM was a complete mess on Ubuntu 12..0418:34
Jadedto be honest, they are all a mess18:34
Jadedthings arent in a very good state anywhere18:34
SuperpelicanThat makes me very sad18:34
Jadedme too18:34
SuperpelicanIt's really a shame18:34
Jadedi'm happy to see work being put into mali400 drivers though, but they are far, far from having a decent driver18:34
SuperpelicanBut at least Nvidia(!, the company called worst company ever dealed with by Linus himself) was contributing to the Tegra 2 driver18:35
Stskeepstegra support for x11's pretty good18:35
Stskeepson arm18:35
SuperpelicanJaded:But which driver do you think will eventually be the best? Mali or PowerVR18:35
Jadedi'm not sure18:35
Jadedat this point i'd probably say powervr18:35
Jadedbut things might change18:36
SuperpelicanJaded:Because there's of course a difference between the community needing more time to develop and the community not having enough documentation18:36
SuperpelicanJaded:If for example Mali needs some more manhours and PowerVR is currently better but lacks enough docs18:36
SuperpelicanJaded:Than eventually Mali will catch up and beat PowerVR18:36
Jadedi think that's pretty much how it is actually18:36
Jadedfrom what i remember reading18:37
Jadedand if i'm not mistaken, XBMC got cedarx video decoding working (somewhat)18:37
*** halVIII_ has joined #mer18:38
SuperpelicanWhat's CedarX, you mean PowerVR GPUs in Intel Cedar Trail18:38
Jadedcedarx is the video decoding unit that usually comes on sunxi boards with mali40018:39
* ljp yawns18:39

*** leinir has quit IRC18:46
ljpsee what happens when your working on secret projects? you forget things.18:46
SuperpelicanJaded:But isn't ARM giving away more documentation then Imagination?18:47
Stskeepsimagine how traumatised some people were to come back and deal with harmattan level code again ;)18:47
JadedSuperpelican, they do18:48
*** halVIII_ has quit IRC18:49
SuperpelicanSo Mali drivers will eventually be better then PowerVR, just like I sort of said?18:50
Stskeepsthe tendancy is probably going more towards that nobody's caring about normal linux, though - it's already quite bad18:50
