    Phoronix: DRM Development Documentation (TTM, GEM, KMS, etc)

    One of the common complaints that arise from hopeful X.Org / Mesa developers or those aspiring to contribute to this critical free software area is that there's not enough documentation that is up-to-date and covers the internals of the X Server, Mesa, DDX drivers, etc. Well, for those looking to get into any Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) work, a heap of new documentation is available...

    Good News

    This is very good for the whole process. Hopefully admins and packagers will be able to use the new features in time for the April round of distros.

      "This is very good for the whole process."

      Agreed. I read through all that's up so far, and it's definitely helped my understanding of the driver internals... Enough that I might just start hacking around a bit in my (admittedly limited... silly CPU architectures class...) free time.

          Well, well... About time. Might even get some hackers started much like we had with Utah-GLX back in the day.

            Was this never accepted upstream? Why?
