The Summit

I know I promised on-going blogs on the Linux Collaboration Summit, but I failed. From previous experience I knew not to count on reliable Internet access at the conference site; I was planning to just post the blogs I had written during the day when I returned to the hotel. What I didn't count on was the conference rooms would have less electrical outlets then your average dorm room. We blamed the nearby super-computer for taking all our power.

nvidia performance problems (again)

It’s that never ending story once again. Upgrade the video card, suffer extreme performance loss in the desktop:

  1. swap nvidia 7900 card for 8600 (a meager upgrade, but still)
  2. notice the desktop has dramatically slowed down (expected)
  3. recompile the newest nvidia kernel drivers
  4. reboot, and to no avail, no performance increase
  5. repeat steps 3 and 4, each time tweaking something else. xorg.conf, ubuntu restricted drivers etc

DRI is enabled:
seb@hammerhead:~$ glxinfo | grep "direct"
direct rendering: Yes

ubuntu 5-a-day-stats?

Apparently hit 1000 triaged bugs... as first team ever!!! *jump* *party* ... ah well, no time for partying, more bugs are waiting ;-)

Still it makes me proud to be part of such a wonderful community, not only but also Ubuntu as a whole, including all of *buntu.
