  • GPU things
    • Have emailed graphics people for info.
    • bug 1440206 - connect() brokering may not be a good idea
      • nvidia's thing is SOCK_DGRAM; Primus is… probably not common? But I don't think we have telemetry?
    • bug 1442055 to do something about Primus; need to gather more info in glxtest to even detect it
    • bug 1438391 - weakened sandboxing for VirtualGL (which helpfully sets env vars to announce itself)
    • bug 1438394 - Still no idea about fglrx; asked graphics people for advice on that too.
  • bug 1438401 - “fixed” Cairo shm usage by failing shmget()
    • Removed the XShmQueryExtension shim but forgot the #include. Oops.
  • Continued reviewing / advising on bug 1438678


  • bug 1438394 The fglrx detection from bug 1376910 is sometimes not working.
  • can't reproduce, individual parts are fine...?!?! last try will be installing same debian+fglrx

    • bug 1376865 - Canvas Permission prompt is done, landed in central and beta (yay!)
    • bug 1409973 - Locale/Timezone fix - landed!
