I'm using vbox usually, but now i'm trying to report various 16 bpp depth issues
07:06
In intel-based hardware I get crashes, in vbox I get double image...
07:07
In 4.4 kernel it worked fine, now in 4.8 it's borked
07:07
Maybe it's time to default to 32bpp :(
07:07
Fortunately I haven't seen any issue yet on actual old thin client hardware
07:08
<vagrantc>
i'm partial to letting the driver decide what to default to
07:08
i know that 16bit saves a lot of bandwidth for thin clients... but it seems to introduce issues with some drivers
07:09
<alkisg>
It's been working fine in all schools here in the past
07:09
I haven't switched them to 16.04 yet so I don't know how the case will be with the newest stack
07:09
<vagrantc>
i even had issues at freegeek which was running some pretty old hardware
07:09
which was a few years ago now...
07:09
<alkisg>
But I did see issues with virtualbox and newest intel hardware, skylake etc
07:10
Do you remember which driver it was?
07:10
<vagrantc>
surely i forgot that particular issue to make space for more recent information :)
07:10
<alkisg>
Forgotten issue == no issue :P
07:11
<vagrantc>
been working on patches for nbd to not require our stupid workarounds in the nbd-server configs for ltsp today...
07:11
but i didn't have time to test them, and apparently they don't work :(
07:12* alkisg has started deploying 16.04 to some schools and has been pretty busy filling bug reports and sending patches everywhere...
07:12
<vagrantc>
though i'll be more confident they don't work if i can prove it to myself
07:12
<alkisg>
Ouch
07:12
<vagrantc>
https://bugs.debian.org/846998 in case you're interested in glancing at it...
07:13
i'm pretty sure it shouldn't impact ubuntu 16.04
07:13
anyways, gotta call it a day! :)
