TC meeting Week 11-2016 report

  1. Kernel and Hardware
    During the release report there was a discussion about hardware issues. The intel i915 driver has been causing issue for people for some time now. In particular some laptops which utilise dual graphics adapters for power saving. This problem shows itself continuous rebooting.
    Later kernels appear to perform better with these boxes we are working on making a later vanilla kernel available for users who are having these difficulties. We hope to include this on the upcomong beta

  2. AOB

  • IBM
    We were informed that we would qualify for some free processing time on IBM POWER servers. We hope to use this offer to speed up build times on our new abf.

  • ABF
    Finally one attendee offered us monetry or hardware support to help us to improve the abf infrastructure. Our thanks go to Blackcrack.
