Thanks. It looks like AMD and NVidia have similar performance with OpenCl

This test was needed for me to do decission about usage of CUDA. But now I see that it doesn't make sense. OpenCL on nVidia cards works also very well.

@zebastian
you are welcome. :)
the opencl version seems to be properly implemented by nvidia, though a little late. I think opencl should be close to hardware optimum on both platforms, as long as we use standard features of opencl and do not depend on specialties, which are only present in CUDA. But since we are "only" using the GPU as an offloader for the heavy rendering shaders, we should be fine with this.

hello there,
latest git master on archlinux shows some font scaling errors

other qt apps works well

setting size of fonts does not change anything

Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
Which font settings have no influence? When you change in system settings in Mandelbulber preferences dialog?
Martin

ui style will be applied
but not the font setting
i tried other qt apps on my workstation
font settings are working there
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
So if you change UI font size in Mandelbulber, font size is changing
But if you change it in the system no change is visible
Am I correct?
Martin
@acidhunter
yes
no sry^^
i try to explain
UI font size in Mandelbulber is NOT changing

@buddhi1980
I need to install archlinux to investigate it. Under Debian, Ubuntu and Windows it works properly
Martin
@acidhunter
okay
i could do this for you and give you a remote
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
do you use TeamViewer?
Martin
@acidhunter
i can install it
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
this would help
Martin
@acidhunter
i think i found something, seem to be arch related
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
is this something which I should know?
Martin
@acidhunter
i got this errors in all qt apps
Failed to compute left/right minimum bearings for "mtx"
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
hmmm
Martin
@acidhunter
thank you for the support!
it was relateed to my system font
Martin
@acidhunter
hello there,
finally i managed to dockerize mandelbulber2-git for gui usage on linux!
i forked https://github.com/dockercask/dockercask and add support for mandelbulber2-git
Martin
@acidhunter

get a fresh build archlinux container with mandelbulber2 from git master is real simple:

python2 dockercask.py add mandelbulber2-git

run:
python2 dockercask.py run mandelbulber2-git

update:
python2 dockercask.py update mandelbulber2-git

Martin
@acidhunter
because a dockerized gui client isnt enough^^
now there is a arch based headless docker image ;-)
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
Thanks. This will help people who use computing clusters
Martin
@acidhunter
the gui container does support passthru nvidia-dri and nvidia-smi
+pulseaudio ;-)
Martin
@acidhunter
is there any existing packageing?
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
what you mean by packageing?
Martin
@acidhunter
sry for my bad wording, waas a long night^^
what do you think about repositories for debian/ubuntu/arch?
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
There is already maintainer for Debian/Ubuntu package
Martin
@acidhunter
oh, i miss that
i dont use ubuntu since years
Krzysztof Marczak
@buddhi1980
But it's still better to compile the program by user to get better performance
