Shame on id! :) I never understood why applications had fixed-size buffers to store the GL extension string. Was the extra call to strlen and malloc during start-up really that expensive?!? I think providing a way to work around buggy apps is good, but I'd like to make it optional. I much prefer, for example, to see glxinfo output extensions in the current order. I think the right idea, and sorting by year is the right start, is to add an alternate sort field to the existing table. If a certain driconf variable is set, extensions will be sorted by the alternate ordering. This will make it easy to blacklist buggy apps in the default driconf. All of this would be handled in the routine that generates the extension string. We'd just wrap the generator with a loop over years. Emit all the supported extensions from 1992, emit all the supported extensions from 1993, emit all the supported extensions from 1994, emit all the supported extensions from 1995, ... I'm also a bit surprised that not detecting GL_EXT_compiled_vertex_array has any impact on our Quake3 performance. After all, our CVA implementation doesn't do anything! Looking at the list, it seems more likely that GL_EXT_texture_env_add is the problem. Not having that will cause Quake3 to use additional rendering passes in quite a few cases. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iEYEARECAAYFAkufpJcACgkQX1gOwKyEAw/o3QCeMmXtkbQTp8I/yb0G7zNbotIs 0pYAn06BHrhmgc6rva4tqq9KfyNHaDXy =Uh49 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Download Intel® Parallel Studio Eval Try the new software tools for yourself.
