A new linuxsystems overlay: wine-nine

This overlay allows you to build latest git version of mesa and wine with the gallium nine patches. Wine has to translate DirectX => OpenGL => Gallium, which add complications and brings inefficiency. Thanks to the gallium nine state tracker we simply skip the OpenGL translation.

New ebuild: app-emulation/wine-1.7.24 CSMT (d3dstream)

You can find it in the wine-d3dstream overlay: http://www.linuxsystems.it/overlay/

A new linuxsystems overlay: wine

Latest wine version is currently 1.7.26 while latest version available in gentoo repositories is only 1.7.21. This overlay allows you to build latest version of wine with pulseaudio, pipelight (compholio) and gstreamer support.

You can find my app-emulation/wine-1.7.26 ebuild in the new wine overlay: http://www.linuxsystems.it/overlay/

A new linuxsystems overlay: wine-d3dstream

This overlay allows you to build latest git version of wine with the D3D command stream patches which create a separate command stream / worker thread for WineD3D. This work moves OpenGL calls into a seperate thread in order to improve performance up to 50~100% and in some cases making the games under Wine faster [...]

A new linuxsystems overlay: radeonsi

In my previous post someone asked about my radeonsi ebuilds, so I decided to create a new overlay. This overlay allows you to use Keith Packard’s xorg-server glamor-server branch and Tom Stellard’s si-spill-fixes-v4 llvm branch (rebased from time to time by me). You will have to use my x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati and x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel ebuilds because otherwise they [...]

media-video/mplayer-1.1_rc1_p20120820 with vaapi use flag

I made an updated version of my mplayer-vaapi ebuild.

You can find my media-video/mplayer ebuild with vaapi use flag in my overlay.

[Gentoo] Folding@Home v7: fahclient-7.1.52 ebuild available

Latest sci-biology/foldingathome ebuild in portage is 6.34-r2. Thanks to Bas Couwenberg who did the original sci-biology/fahclient-7.1.43 ebuild I made a new version for 7.1.52: sci-biology/fahclient-7.1.52.ebuild

You can find both in my overlay.

media-video/mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20120116 with vaapi use flag

An mplayer ebuild which supports VA-API hardware acceleration isn’t something you can easily find. There is one in the calculate overlay but it’s quite ancient nowadays. This is why a made a new ebuild based on the latest git code from http://gitorious.org/vaapi/mplayer.

You can find my media-video/mplayer ebuild with vaapi use flag in my overlay.
