Nah I'll stick with C and maybe I'll pick up another language down the line.

We don't have any support of antialiasing in our hardware, cairo and xrender have to calculate this on your main cpu. I am quite sure your Matrox Millennium can do this in hardware.


I'd be shocked as the Millennium I is 1995/6 vintage HW (the M II came out around 97 IIRC).

I guess VPro isn't much younger -- still, I'd be surprised if the M I can support proper AA (I'm skeptical if this card can do line AA let alone point).

I used to have the specs for this card, as I worked with David Dawes on the original XF86 server for the Millennium I and II while @ Sun. This was right around the time Glide came to Linux, and I moved onto this (http://openut.sourceforge.net/docs.php). I'm the "Jeffrey" guy. :) Anyhow, nobody was doing AA in any Linux GUI @ the time (either in the font or widget set). I'll give you the benefit of the doubt though.

I've often wondered how many of us are (or were) commercial Unix vendor employees. My first job out of college was for AT&T, back in the dark ages when they were still hoping to make an eventual profit from Unix. I think we all know how well that worked out for them... :lol:

Ha. I've got a couple reels on my office wall from the Encore system we used before we got the HP K250 (in the machine room, link below).

I think I have one (or a set of two) 9-tracks with 4.3bsd on it. IIRC I actually got the miniroot running on my 11/730 in 1990-91*, but the whole reason I got the thing was because the RM80 was throwing tons of bad blocks under VMS. A grad student in the magnet lab was using the thing as her personal workstation until that happened - I asked around and got her an 11/750 that another lab had taking up space in a hallway, along with a couple RA81s. Quite an upgrade...

I was surprised at even getting the thing to boot the miniroot, I had heard that the Nebula wasn't supported by any of the distribution/generic kernels.


* I had to run an extension cord so I could put the RM80 on it's own circuit, otherwise I'd just pop the circuit breaker.

By the way, I use diegel's rebuild on a daily basis and it is really MUCH faster than older builds.

Is this a known problem? I just upgraded from some previous non-optimized build of firefox 3.0.19 and got this:

Code: Select all

Removing orphaned directories
neko_firefox3.sw.eoe: ( if test -r $rbase/usr/lib/filetype/Makefile ; then chroot $rbase /sbin/sh -c "cd /usr/lib/filetype ; make -u > /dev/null" )
/bin/sh: syntax error at line 1 : `)' unexpected
ERROR: Command "( if test -r $rbase/usr/lib/filetype/Makefile ; then chroot $rbase /sbin/sh -c "cd /usr/lib/filetype ; make -u > /dev/null" )" failed (return status 2, subsystem neko_firefox3.sw.eoe 4)


I'm not sure if this is from the old or the new

This is the script to run the filetype makefile. It's only used for the icons. I don't see the problem here but I will check this.
