    Phoronix: The DRM Pull Request For The Linux 2.6.39 Kernel

    David Airlie has just emailed Linus Torvalds with his main DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) pull request for the Linux 2.6.39 kernel that 2.6.38 was released earlier this week. As was mentioned a few days ago, the Linux 2.6.39 kernel will feature a number of interesting changes to the open-source graphics drivers, among other areas...

    Wrong

    AMD published the patches earlier this month for Radeon HD 6900 series open-source support in the DRM/KMS driver, but there is currently no 2D/3D/video acceleration support with this code.
    Michael, you've been told this a couple times now. The KMS driver does have the acceleration support included, you just have to use an updated userspace driver to enable it. Maybe it's buggy, but hopefully in a few months when this kernel is ready to be released the userspace drivers will be done as well.

      It seems this is now in linux-next. For example:

      Code:
      --- a/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/radeon_family.h
      +++ b/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/radeon_family.h
      @@ -84,6 +84,7 @@ enum radeon_family {
      CHIP_BARTS,
      CHIP_TURKS,
      CHIP_CAICOS,
      + CHIP_CAYMAN,
      CHIP_LAST,
      };

        855 fix?

        What is the 855GM fix? The pull request doesn't really make it obvious (to those of us not in tune with development)
