DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CREATE_DUMB failed: Out of memory

more like out of sanity :G

@realcaseyrollins I made this comment on hackernews earlier about the Apple release. It got down to -4 at one point.

Ugh, I forgot Mastodon doesn't support Markdown formatting...

Is there any manual for libDRM API? I'd like to set new mode with custom timings

[0] bluraf!3@motoko:~ $ man 3 drmModeGetCrtc
No manual entry for drmModeGetCrtc in section 3

Today I was trying to get 480i/480p image from Raspberry Pi using VGA666 adapter, but I couldn't get any stable image on my JVC monitor. Maybe VGA666 is outputting too weak/too strong synchronization signals?

Any tips?

I had to buy VGA-BNC cable and ready-to-use SCART-VGA adapter, because my DIY sync stripper wasn't working... or this CRT just needs separate VSync and HSync signals to work properly.

What are some small and well-written C++ open source projects one could use as study material to learn writing real-world C++ code?

so yeah, I'm trying to get my Amiga 500 working with some basic expansions, like a god-damn storage other than floppy disks

Corporate software path to nirvana, in 6 easy steps:

Step 1: build a prototype, get in debt with VC money.
Step 2: acquire technological lead, spend a fair amount in R&D and proper engineering, build a good product people actually use.
Step 3: hire a middle management layer.
Step 4: fire the tech top executive, replace it with a business executive.
Step 5: cut out operational cost by laying off your engineering and r&d workforce.
Step 6: Blame covid.

hey yall i just got a hot new idea for an app

its icon is a blue-cyan circle with white detail, and its only purpose is to make it slightly harder to find every other app on your home screen

2 hours "wasted" while trying to find usable PLL chip for video synchronization, because I want to make a genlock for Amiga for fun :3

jk, I simply can't find any used genlock in Poland.

Anyway, gotta go back to parallel port sampler project. After 2-3 years of studying EE I want to finally make something useful...

tell me how incorrect this is:
by writing more efficient software that can run on weaker more power efficient hardware, we can help decrease many individuals' carbon footprint, thus making a greater change than by changing our tooth brushing habits

My old-new WinXP machine started working again, this time with nForce2-based motherboard.
Unfortunately Pro Tools LE is hanging for some reason, so I can't use digi001 sound interface with it for now. Maybe there is an broken DDR RAM stick installed?

Now it's time to collect all post-2014 updates! (not those from POSready 2009, as I can't find an actual list of updates compatible with non-SSE2 systems yet)

Hmm, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to buy one of these OpenDingux-powered handhelds...

> DirectX on Linux
You know, maybe we should bring back Glide to Linux and use Voodoo cards in protest?

computing enthusiasts: microsoft is supporting linux apps in windows and adding DX support! this is amazing!

me, cynical:
extend <-- you are here
