MGA EXA status

Posted at 2006-08-26

I've been trying to get EXA working on MGA for the past few weeks. ajax posted a patch based on kdrive MGA driver on Bugzilla, and I fixed several nasties there.

Because of my own stupidity I couldn't get the Copy hooks working until yesterday. But now the two basic operations Solid and Copy are working nicely, it seems!

Getting composite to work is nasty though, I doesn't work at all atm :/


Composite is working a little bit; the problem was a bad define for the TEXTURE_TRAP opcode \o/


I suck at keeping this updated. Composite works mostly well, though there's some font rendering issues left. Expect a merge from the exa branch to master soonish (with either the bug fixed or a software fallback put in place).

XMMS2-Scrobbler 0.1

Posted at 2006-08-26

XMMS2-Scrobbler 0.1 has been released yesterday.

The code was stable for a while now, so I don't expect too much trouble.

Note that this release will work with both our latest XMMS2 development release, DrFeelgood and the development branch.

Leaving for Wacken Open Air

Posted at 2006-08-02

I'll leave for Wacken Open Air in about an hour. There's some nice bands on the billing, I can't wait to see Legion of the Damned (again), Arch Enemy and Amon Amarth :D I'll write about how the festival has been going when I'm back on sunday.

In other news, I've written a Ruby extension to read and write vorbis comments since all of the existing vorbis extensions only have read-only support. I'll use it to synchronize vorbis comments with MusicBrainz.


Wacken 2006 was cool. We were camping with/near friends of a co-worker of my friend, and some of them are nice guys :D

Weird enough, we also met some guys that were camping with us last year, by chance. wtf, there's only 50.000 people in Wacken or something. Cheers to Alex, who even still knew my name \o/

Opeth is cool, especially Mikael Ã…kerfeldt. In Extremo and Arch Enemy are good live. Yay for Legion of the Damned. Amon Amarth = disappointing. Too lazy to write more now.
