    no arguing with irrationality..

    someone better not tell 'em that dbus uses sockets, lest they try to build a kernel without socket support :-P
  2. I don't expect LLVM vs NIR makes any difference...

    I don't expect LLVM vs NIR makes any difference to re-use from other mesa drivers, so much so as figuring out how to plumb it through gallium..

    The non-mesa drivers, we don't care about one way or...
  3. TGSI is not a real IR. Every gallium driver that...

    TGSI is not a real IR. Every gallium driver that needs to do any sort of optimization, instruction scheduling, etc, turns TGSI into it's own private internal IR.

    I'd be curious if they make the...

    I see very little in common between mir vs. wayland, and LLVM vs. NIR. At least the latter does not have impact on application writers, toolkit writers, etc. It is merely an implementation detail...

    s/take/teach/ :-P

    I really doubt an undergrad level compiler course would teach cwabbot anything new at this point.

    re: LLVM.. I'm not really sure it is worth the headache. It sounds very...

    according to the first commit msg (http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/commit/?id=1850d0a1cbf044dc4d29b7a9ede2c634f667d853) it is based in part on some of the community work that had started...

    yup.. some customizations from aosp kernel tree and then generally a whole steaming pile of SoC vendor stuff. From there, device manufactures branch off and pile on some more.. if you are lucky the...
  8. Because it is a drm driver.. kms is part of drm....

    Because it is a drm driver.. kms is part of drm. Display-only drm/kms drivers are becoming more common with SoC's, and expect to eventually start seeing some render/gpu-only drm drivers for the gpu...
  9. anholt would know better, but I suspect it should...

    anholt would know better, but I suspect it should be able to support and emulate enough GL to be useful.. adreno is only GLES hw, but a2xx could do enough for a GL 1.4 context, and a3xx enough for GL...
  10. I don't expect gpu should be a problem.. from...

    I don't expect gpu should be a problem.. from what I've seen so far, all that really matters for userspace gl driver (of all the a3xx variants) is just the patchlevel. Ie. a320.0 is same as a330.0...

    I haven't.. although I expect it can..

    making a phone call might be another matter.. no idea what modem it has. Although I thought people tended to hook up modems w/ something like AT over some...

    well, considering that apq8064 is a variant that does not have an integrated modem, that page is mistaken.

    I can state that I have several apq8064 devices, including a nexus4, all of which work...

    Qcom is a bit difficult in some ways, but I'm not aware of any closed kernel part. There are some closed fw parts needed for bootloader. It isn't really that much different from, for example, omap...

    and also took down a tree from Sony's sonyxperiadev project..

    tbh, looking at the takedown request, it doesn't really make much sense. Anyone know anything about QinetiQ? They seem to be the...

    Just fyi, for most codecs, broadcom would have to be paying a per-unit royalty for supported codecs. It is not uncommon for low cost SoC's to cut costs by not "supporting" some codecs which are...

    So, before you and others embarrass yourselves too much, let me point out that daniels (and myself) are paid open source developers. And I think my experience mirrors his.. money is somewhat less...

    When I looked at the gpu docs that broadcom release a while back, when they first release the *real* driver code (as opposed to the shim that was released originally), it looked like it did not...
  18. That is the design of bcom's original closed src...

    That is the design of bcom's original closed src driver. But the ARM can drive the GPU just as well. I expect that Eric will be working on an ARM side driver. Not using the whole...
  19. I guess it is safe to assume that whatever...

    I guess it is safe to assume that whatever newer/faster next-generation SoC broadcom is cooking up will have a gpu that is based on what is in rpi.



    Well, this is actually moving the gpu driver...

    well, GO bit stuff is more for "pageflip" updates than "modeset" updates.. there has been some talk about possibly allowing for asynchronous modeset to speed up boot/resume. Which wouldn't make...
