It was OFFlist but is certainly useful as public AddOn, so I reply to myself:
Ironically Ken - despite all of his really very good userland Xorg and Mesa
work for a decade - never tested SNA on the last official Intel-Xorg-ddx which
is still 2.21.5 or something (rather than 2.99).
In winter I created a test-ddx for Xorg running on Hipster (Xorg-ABI matches
If I find it I gladly upload it and then youb can test and see what I mean.
Then you witness that SNA is rubbish on Solaris kernels (and it appears that
even Oracle doesn't know how to make it really work on Solaris).
Maybe some kernel-performance engineer could debug it with dtrace to find out
what's eating up all the cycles. But UXA works fine and the performance gain of
SNA over UXA isn't that large, even on LinUX where it works fine.
As for qt5.8: Something is different on your (probably more modern) Hipster
But despite putting all, then some, then specific ones, then none /usr/gnu/bin
tools in front of /usr/bin (via $PATH plus permutations of lofs mounts) I
always ended in
and never managed to isolate what exactly causes it (including running gmake
-d did'nt show me why it is trapped in re-iteration loops).
But the point when I finally had enough was after qt5.8 was finally built and
vbox linked against it and then rather than a window coming up it ended with
"gtk_menu_attach_to_widget(): menu already attached to GtkMenuItem"
We can deal with qt5.8 later, as of now it doesn't have any release
stability/quality whatsoever, neither for building it nor for using it.
But as said: qt4.8 *is* in the repo plus is *rock-stable*.
And it was braindead easy to get it working in Vbox 5 again:
