    Phoronix: OpenIndiana With Intel Sandy Bridge?

    While Oracle Solaris has Intel KMS/DRI2 support, the Solaris port of this Intel Linux driver code isn't yet part of the open-source Solaris distributions...

    I'd like to see how well Oracle Solaris 11 supports Intel's Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge chipsets for desktop users.

      Intel 2.16.0 driver *IS* available for OpenIndiana distro

      Dear Phoronix (Michael L.),

      Before the pre-release of OpenIndiana oi_151, I worked on the Solaris port of the Xorg Intel 2.16.0 driver for testing purposes. I can make it available to Phoronix for review on Intel HD 3000 GPU-related platforms using OpenIndiana (or help create a test setup for you).

      In your other article, "The Sad State Of GPU Drivers For BSD, Solaris", this article is a bit misleading - but has a good point if OpenSolaris-based distributions want to keep up on Intel graphics development.

      I can provide the nouveau stack and libKMS ports as I'll list here:
      (thor) $: uname -a
      SunOS thor 5.11 oi_151a i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris

      (thor) $: ls /usr/lib/xorg
      TrustedExtensionsPolicy libdrm_intel.so.1 libfontenc.so
      amd64 libdrm_intel.so.1.0.0 libfontenc.so.1
      libXfont.so libdrm_nouveau.la libkms.la
      libXfont.so.1 libdrm_nouveau.so libkms.so
      libdrm.la libdrm_nouveau.so.1 libkms.so.1
      libdrm.so libdrm_nouveau.so.1.0.0 libkms.so.1.0.0
      libdrm.so.2 libdrm_radeon.la modules
      libdrm.so.2.4.0 libdrm_radeon.so pkgconfig
      libdrm_intel.la libdrm_radeon.so.1 protocol.txt
      libdrm_intel.so libdrm_radeon.so.1.0.0

      Test file: -rwxr-xr-x * * 311700 Oct 12 10:19 intel_drv.so (Xorg Intel 2.16.0 video driver)

      The OpenIndiana oi_151a distro officially uses Xserver 1.7.7 so you can't SNA-enabled features as provided by the current Intel 2.16 driver. This may change soon.

      There are possible kernel patches needed for a few other things...

      Hope this helps,
      Ken Mays (USA)
