Intel graphics and other stuffs
Arch got a kernel update, kernel26 126.96.36.199-1 and xf86-video-intel is at 2.4.3-1. This seems to have fixed the issue with the TTM buffer manager in glxgears somewhat. I now get a fps of around 350, which is way better than the earlier 62fps.
However, the lag is visible just using xcompmgr along with xmonad. Transparnet urxvt seems to have problem displaying more than a couple of pages of scrolling text. Hopefully, the next update will improve it. 🙂
Transparent terminals are probably useless but still somewhat beautiful looking for an otherwise dumb tiling WM.
Yaourt broke due to some update in the AUR website, although its been fixed now. Just enter this command to update yaourt,
yaourt -S yaourt
simple, ain’t it? I just use arson though. Somehow I like to manually do a makepkg and pacman -U 🙂
