Re: questions over Open3D Radeon 7500 on OpenVMS

A last little question for Steven

Have you see total black screen from time to time when running OpenGL tests (bounce for example)?
I see black screen during over 3-4 sec every time ~ 1 min

I didn't notice anything like that, I get
these warnings:

GLUT: Warning in alp$dka0:[sms.itrc]gl2.exe;2: glutSetColor: current window is RGBA
GLUT: Warning in alp$dka0:[sms.itrc]gl2.exe;2: glutSetColor: current window is RGBA
GLUT: Warning in alp$dka0:[sms.itrc]gl2.exe;2: glutSetColor: current window is RGBA

and the disc moves too fast to look good
until I kill the program, but I haven't seen
any all-black time. Knowing nothing, I'd
guess that your system is busy doing
something else what that happens. Have you
tried a higher process priority? (Or more
memory (for your process or the system)?)

> DS10L, Radeon 7500

This implies IDE mass storage on the box. That can get pretty CPU bound during disk I/O and cause visible slowdowns. That's a big reason I keep looking for a free/cheap DS10/DS15 to update one of my DS10L units; the tradeoff between graphics and a fast SCSI adapter given the single PCI slot.

Ooh. Good point. I use an IDE DVD-writer in
an XP1000, and that eats most of the CPU when
it's working. I can easily imagine a page
fault (or almost anything else) on an IDE
disk stopping things for a while.

I almost bought a DS10L at a local junk store
some years ago. The price was tempting, but
that one PCI slot was just too big a
limitation.

Or a DS20E/25. I figure that I'll be stuck
with XP1000 systems until approximately the
end of the world (21 May 2011?) or until the
last power supply dies, whichever comes
first.

Still no audio support on IA64? I might
switch to my zx2000 if it could do everything
an XP1000 can do.

Another interesing question -
it would be good to have XV extension (Xvideo, not the famous Bradley's product).
Would be nice to add support to the X11 server, but I cant see any sources of the OpenVMS X11 server (totally proprietary or XFree86 based? Some words provided by xdpyinfo like DRI-XF86 touch me to think)

And friends, did you hear anybody about plans to support PCI sound for I64?

Re: questions over Open3D Radeon 7500 on OpenVMS

there is some support for sound in OpenVMS I64 V8.4

OpenVMS V8.4 has limited support for HP AD317A PCI sound card on Integrity servers. Have a look at following link:

I assume that a genuine HP AD317A costs more
than $5. Does anyone know what this card (or
the chip on tis card) is? (What's in
SYS$CONFIG.DAT?)

What does "limited support" mean here? MMOV
or not?

The sound support does not include multimedia support just beeps.
