New "NV30" Nouveau Driver Still Causes Pain
Phoronix: New "NV30" Nouveau Driver Still Causes Pain
One week ago following the committing of the major libdrm re-write for the Nouveau project, the "NVFX" Gallium3D driver was dropped and succeeded by a new "NV30" driver for the GeForce FX/6/7 series GPUs. Unfortunately, for at least some hardware, this Nouveau support is still a busted mess...
and the concludion is ...?
I don't get the intention behin bashing the open drivers again and again.
One could argue this could help to shift focus to open-source development and attrackt more developers - which as far as I can see hasn't happend.
Instead, what you do is to cause frustration for those few guys/girls that spend their free time writing those drivers, telling them over and over again how slow and feature-incomplete their driver is, compared to those binary blobs written by comapnies which invested millions and millions of dollars, because their whole buissness depends on these drivers.
