    Sure, the SGX bits are probably similar or identical, but gma500 isn't split up properly so you cannot just stick it in another driver. Well, the MMU and blitter code is pretty self contained. But...

    I really hope that you're right. But I'm not convinced just yet.
  3. Just like to point out that this is also targeted...

    Just like to point out that this is also targeted at Oaktrail / Moorestown and Cedarview, which might be platforms people still care about. It might also apply to Merryfield when it's released.
  4. I did look at it a while ago and the problem is...

    I did look at it a while ago and the problem is that the vaapi driver needs an overlay to render onto so we can blit/map that overlay into the framebuffer and automatically get any format conversion...

    Yeah, then it looks like the panel is powered differently. There might be an ACPI method for turning it on and off but that's just a guess and requires some tinkering to figure out.
  6. Not sure, but we might have talked about this...

    Not sure, but we might have talked about this before. It should be a regular LVDS panel hooked up to your system and in that case it looks like it's just a matter of getting the backlight code...

    The motivation is obviously to have the Ubuntu logo rotating on a cube during boot. Go Ubuntu Go!

    If I bring a 4000 km long fiber cable we can all surf on my home connection with only a 20ms penalty. Perhaps it's intentional to not provide visitors with a connection. Makes people actually look up...

    From what I recall, it was a bit too simplistic to use for more serious projects. This might have changed since I used it but because it's not a good fit for everyone using SDL I figure they don't...

    Basically it comes down to not allowing kernel code that nobody (in the open) can say what it does. If you can't test kernel features openly, then it's not possible to say if it's stable or secure....

    Not exactly. What he suggests is that Nouveau and Nvidia share the Nouveau code. If they don't share it, it wont get into mainline because the kernel doesn't accept shim drivers.

    There might also...

    The more I think about this bounty approach the more I start to dislike it. It's not compatible with how driver development works.

    There are developers that would like to start contributing (or...

    I totally get you, but It depends on what you think a feature is. I'll try to explain with an analogy: You're building a house and someone installs the toilets, sinks and showers. This is what the...

    I agree. In order to get the most amount of money from donations we need hard facts and numbers. But I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's not a fixed amount of work and it will be very hard to...

    Your idea is interesting, but I don't think it is feasible. It could work if you put up rewards for very small problems like bug fixing. But stuff like OpenGL 4.2 i just a too big time investment. I...

    Sounds like a brilliant idea. I'm a freelancing programmer that would gladly take on this challenge and I would definitely also donate to such a project.

    Here are a few points that I think are...

    You can probably find something second-hand. That way you don't support any of the involved companies but you get access to the hardware. I found an Asus 1201ha pretty cheap. Had to replace the LCD...

    Yes the US15W uses about 40% (2.3 / 6) of the power that 945 does and transistor power consumption isn't linear to the clock speed either. Down clocking the 945 to match that would make simply make...

    Uhm, I don't really get that PR.


    So if the drivers where open they would stop giving same-day support and Windows parity?

    Intel had nothing that could compete with PVR's performance / power ratio at the time. Using their own technology would have put their product outside the TDP requirements for their intended use. If...
