Thanks for answering these questions
On the desktop I use discrete graphics from that other company that isn't spelled with 3-letters, but I use good ol' fashioned 4500HD graphics on a core 2 notebook and they do pretty nicely with KDE. I even do HD audio + video out over HDMI to my TV and it works out of the box on a composited desktop.
My question to you is more related to future graphics. I know you can't go into detail about the capabilities of IB and Haswell, but I was wondering about: 1. If you can give any predictions about how Wayland will develop alongside Intel products in the future, and 2. If you have any idea about getting QuickSync support in the existing Sandy Bridge systems working under Linux (If QuickSync is unrelated to your work then I apologize for being off-topic).
core i7 overclocking and kernel
Will we see a proper kernel support for core i7 920 and above ?
new kernels (starting from 2.6.36 I belive) panic when overclocking core i7 9xx.
also these 2.6.36 and above kernes don't show the multiplier i.e. cat /proc/cpuinfo
I have recompiled a kernel with different setting and can provide a working kernel config for i7 920 if needed.
However, my kernel still doesn't show the multiplier, it recognizes the overclocking.
Optimus switch OFF in bios as standard
Hi Intel spokes-geek,
please do enable this switch in laptop motherboard bios as a matter of standard operation procedure, so that Linux/BSD/Unix users do not have to put up with inferior (stop frowning, you know the nVidia is better! ;-) ), intel graphics. I actually want to use the superior chips, not the fall-back low power "stuff...."
You can start, pretty please, with the Gateway NV57H series? :-D
Please do the right thing, by Linux/BSD/Unix users. There is more to life, than the cash cow, of Windows zombies.
