Hi,
Is there a way to compile the latest dt for a Ubuntu 14 trusty tahr,  where I can use AMD catalyst driver for an old graphic-card?

For what is worth...

I am using DT on Dell XPS (mid 2011) - this is i7 (gen 2) - machine 8GB
RAM SSD Samsung 512 GB with Ubuntu 16.04.

Compared to

DT on Dell Inspiron (late 2014) - this is i5 (gen 4) - machine 8GB RAM
same SSD Samsung 512 GB with Windows 10 64 bit home edition fully updated.

For now - I am _not_ going back to Windows. And the issue is not only
with DT - everything on windows is much slower. So much so that nobody
at home can stand it most of the time except my daughter who plays some
games on it.

I know I am comparing i5 vs i7 but the windows is 3 years newer machine
(and I have tested it on Linux - live CD and it does work much better in
terms of speed).

Regards,

B

Hi Matej,

Yes, I have:
$ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
*OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 17.3.2 - padoka PPA*

But I still cant get Opencl to work.

In fact, I've been thinking if this slowness may be fault of these
alternative drivers.

    Hello dt users,

    I don't use Windows for more than 5 years and used to be very
    happy with Linux (Ubuntu, in my case). Until Ubuntu 14.04 or
    15.10 I was, at least. In that time, I could use the AMD HD 7730M
    2gb GPU of my Dell Inspiron 7520 Core I7 notebook, 8gb RAM.

    When dt started to use GTK 3.0, I had to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04,
    in order to be able to compile the package.
    With Ubuntu 16.04, I lost the graphics card proprietary driver.
    No more AmdGPU, no more Opencl, and my computer is like a snail
    nowadays... Even with fresh installation of Ubuntu 16.04.

    My options are:

    Buy a new Laptop (maybe a Gamer machine with Geforce 1050) for a
    lot of cash,

    or.....

    Say goodbye to Linux and go back to Windows, since AMD still
    supports my graphics card (last update february/2018) and dt now
    runs on Windows.

    My questions are:
    1) Is dt for windows stable, right now?

    2) What are your opinion about the above scenario?

    Thank you in advance!
