Is it possible to read a user's twitter account without enabling javascript? The mobile and desktop versions are both now dependent on js.

Most things work without js, and those that don't are often not worth your time anyway.

>Most things work without js, and those that don't are often not worth your time anyway.

This is a good point. When I used to encounter sites that required js to display at all, I'd usually enable js (which took several round of "Allow this..." since they all wanted to load additional shitty js) enough to at least read the content. Now I don't bother. People who aren't publishing garbage don't put it behind walls of js. And 99% of what's on Twitter is fucking garbage.

Here's my story.
At first it started as autism when I was using tor, but after a while I enjoyed viewing websites like actual documents.

I just opened chromium to use a javascript heavy site. I have ublock origin and umatrix configured, plus most settiings manually set so I can lock down the browser except javascript because that's the only thing I use it for.

Once I opened the site, I clicked somewhere out of sheer muscle behaviour, a small pop-up in the right corner appeared even though I have them disabled, then it maximized itself, then a new tab appeared, when trying to close the tab I was asked if I was sure I want to close the tab by chromium and when i closed the pop-up the entire browser crashed.

I can't handle this shit. Once qutebrowser gets whitelisting capabilties thanks to the new config rework maybe I'll whitelist some sites I visit really often but fuck all other sites.

So I have this blog site which hasn't had any new entries in some time and I want to read it all one post a day.
How can I get rss feed which pushes chronologically all posts starting from the first one ?

I'm thinking of creating a subreddit, using automoderator and getting the feed for that subreddit but it's somewhat inconvenient since I have to get some karma on that account and wait 30 days.

Any other way I can be going at this ?

Gallium Nine Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:28:00 [Preview] No. 10010 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Can anyone here explain gallium nine to me please? I have been looking it up but the information is somewhat vague.
From what I gather, it passes data from directx emulation straight to the GPU via a mesa function, without translating it to OpenGL. Essentially a passthrough of some kind for wine.

Are all d3d9 capable radeon cards compatible? Is this the standard Mesa shipped with most distros or do you get a special version from somewhere?
More complicated: How can Mesa (an opengl implementation) pass direct information like that? Doesn't that go against what OpenGL does by design? Shouldn't this technically be for Vesa or whatever driver actually interacts with the hardware?

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:28:11 [Preview] No. 10011 del
Gallium nine is a linux native implementation of the directx9 api. No translation required. Any radeon or Nvidia card is compatible as long as it's using their open source drivers and Mesa is compiled with gallium enabled.

Mesa is no longer just an opengl implementation. For example, it also contains a vulkan implementation (radv).

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:28:22 [Preview] No. 10012 del

Gallium Nine is a state tracker implementation for the Gallium3D infrastructure presenting a Direct3D 9 API. As >>10011 says it's a "native" implementation, no emulation, no translation. It can work in other kernels too, not just Linux.

>Are all d3d9 capable radeon cards compatible?
"d3d9 capable" is marketing speak directed at windoze customers. Irrelevant. The smart question to ask is: is the GPU supported by a Gallium3D Mesa driver?

>Is this the standard Mesa shipped with most distros or do you get a special version from somewhere?
Gallium Nine was merged into upstream Mesa back in the 10.4 release (I think). So it should be available in all Gallium drivers shipped by current distros.

However, making use of Gallium Nine from Wine requires cooperation from Wine itself: it needs to know that it should look for, find, and prefer the native implementation provided by the DRI driver instead of the translation to OpenGL normally done by Wine. As of late 2016 the upstream Wine maintainer has refused merging the patches implementing this functionality. AFAIK, this hasn't changed in the last few months. Therefore, while you most likely can use your distro-supplied Mesa drivers, you will probably need to either compile your own Wine with the patches applied, or grab pre-patched binaries from somewhere (PPA, OBS, Copr, whatever).

>More complicated: How can Mesa (an opengl implementation)
Mesa hasn't been "just" an OpenGL implementation for a long time. Mesa is more like a software laboratory, or culture medium, or factory, for experimenting with, growing, and assembling (the userspace parts of) graphics-acceleration drivers.

>pass direct information like that? Doesn't that go against what OpenGL does by design? Shouldn't this technically be for Vesa or whatever driver actually interacts with the hardware?
What information? What is "like that"? What do you think "OpenGL does by design"? Vesa? I don't think you understand many of the words you use...

Because OpenGL is designed to go via the kernel rather than interface directly with the hardware, unlike directx. Vesa for example, a graphics driver, would though. By information, I'm only making a vague guess about what that actually is as I don't know anything about directx but I have read "d3d" data is passed direct to hardware by directx and in my ignorance I assumed that Mesa must also somehow do the same. This is also why I asked if a card had to be d3d9 capable, because I assumed it received the data directly, which I still assume it does rather than being translated in some way?

Thank you both btw.

>Because OpenGL is designed to go via the kernel rather than interface directly with the hardware, unlike directx.
this is pure nonsense
first: directx != direct3d
second: of course both apis "go via the kernel"!
and nobody had to spend much thought to "design" them that way, because what else would you expect? that's what a os kernel does, it multiplexes access to hardware! (which is why dos doesn't count as a real os btw)

>Vesa for example, a graphics driver, would though.
"vesa" is not a graphics driver
you don't know what you're saying

>By information, I'm only making a vague guess about ........
a gpu, even one that only advertises "direct3d capable" is not a "magical direct3d box"

a gpu is at its heart a collectionm of processors (mostly vector/superscalar/superpipelined architectures), some of them are fixed-function, some special-purpose, some general-purpose

a gpu driver will literally program those processors (the ones that are programmable anyway) in order to perform the intended "graphics processing", although it doesn't have to be "graphics"

That was informative, ty. Clearly I had no idea how directx functions, not sure how I got the idea d3d data was passed direct to the driver. I think I read it once in a directx to opengl comparison forum post, blind leading the blind I guess.

Also, just as a side note, vesa is a driver.

It's intended to be managed by the init system, as evidenced by the fact that the dnscrypt-proxy authors provide both systemd files and sysvinit files with their software.

Threre is NNTP protocol. Many years ago it was Usenet. Now it is ImageBoard. NNTPCHAN soft first.
And not DIBOARD perfect designed for accpet large files with minimal system requrements. Security, quality of code and anonymity.

DIBOARD and NNTPCHAN both use NNTP protocol and fully compatible.
NNTPCHAN use decentralized moderation.
DIBOARD use trust groups and captcha protection.
