Is AMD/ATI paying you guys or is just plain fanboyism!?!?
Ok, point taken.
But you must understand the reason behind my question, i see far more space dedicated to AMD/ATI news or related stuff in Phoronix, it would be a shame to see an excellent and a supposed impartial site like this turn to either one of the gpu manufacturers.
I'm sorry if i didn't express myself in a more appropriate way.
AMD pulls before each beta release and then one final time about a week before the final release.
So when do we get easy to use method?
I haven't used git before so i'm not-so-familiar w/ it.
As long as you don't modify things in your local tree, there are really only these things, that you might need:
Clones the Phorogit tree to fglrx-packaging.Code:git clone http://phorogit.com/repo/fglrx-packaging.git fglrx-packaging
Updates your local tree with the changes, that have been made in phorogit repository.Code:cd fglrx-packaging git pull
Right after clone it should said "Already up-to-date.".
View the log of the changes, that have been made.Code:cd fglrx-packaging git log
That should be all that is needed to get started.
Would there actually be interest for putting an ebuild
for gentoo in that repository, too?
Of course it would be useless, when it actually hits
portage, but during driver release and ebuild release in
portage it might be helpful to some people and it could
also be a nice way to have the latest ebuild using git,
until it's in the tree officially.
(Normally the ebuild changes a little bit from day to day.)
Actually I'm using git already for my local portage overlay.
