  1. I'd just like to point out, since everybody seems...

    I'd just like to point out, since everybody seems to have decided that AMD is the hot target for the night, that during r300g's initial bringup, this series of optimizations was done *in advance*,...
  2. Good luck!

    Good luck!
  3. The Catalyst codebase provides drivers for all...

    The Catalyst codebase provides drivers for all platforms, not just Linux, and it also contains HDCP information, which is proprietary and unreleasable.
  4. I currently work for OSUOSL, so I am not exactly...

    I currently work for OSUOSL, so I am not exactly inactive in the community. I also write lots of free-time things; examine Bravo, Darklight, Lye, etc. from my personal stash for some examples.

    Oh,...

    For those wondering about Marek, Tom, and I: Tom and I are still in school. I don't know about Marek but I seem to remember he is also a student.
  6. I would like to have a VDPAU video decoder simply...

    I would like to have a VDPAU video decoder simply so that people that write video players (mplayer, VLC, etc.) do not have to adapt to Yet Another Video Backend. Additionally, finishing and deploying...
  7. Entirely wrong; the chosen proposals were chosen...

    Entirely wrong; the chosen proposals were chosen based on their relative quality, and only four mentors were available, so only four proposals were chosen. Odds are good that, if we had had a fifth...
  8. Aw, airlied beat me to it. I, too, wanted to...

    Aw, airlied beat me to it. I, too, wanted to congratulate Mono on successful reinvention of modern Xv implementations.

    This, of course, comes as Gallium developers are preparing to start merging...
  9. I would say that it doesn't matter; the fact that...

    I would say that it doesn't matter; the fact that a lawsuit happened is enough deterrence for distros and users.



    Only in that mesa-dev is pretty unanimous on this point already. This isn't a...
  10. I am ignoring all other posts in this thread,...

    I am ignoring all other posts in this thread, because, frankly, they've kind of gone to shit.

    SGI *did* bring legal action against ATI for these patents; this isn't some idle threat that can be...
  11. Just woke up, so forgive thinkos, please. ...

    Just woke up, so forgive thinkos, please.

    VMWare already uses Gallium for their drivers on all platforms. At least one incarnation of the Poulsbo driver uses Gallium on Windows and Linux. If the...
  12. I got very used to hanging my GPU during the...

    I got very used to hanging my GPU during the initial r5xx 3D bringup. It was a very common, hour-to-hour thing, and I just would sigh and reset the machine. Ditto for r300g. Just gotta grin and bear...
  13. This. Out of all of the big committers to the...

    This.

    Out of all of the big committers to the stack, only a very small number *stay* amateurs after a couple months; people are definitely willing to pay for these kinds of high-quality coders. (I...
  14. John didn't say anything like that. Additionally,...

    John didn't say anything like that. Additionally, we get help from John all the time, as well as other AMD employees: Alex maintains (!) the 2D radeon driver, and Richard and Cooper wrote the...

    It's funny that you mention XGI; there's an XGI Volari hanging on my wall. I haven't gotten around to it. (Yet.)

    Most of the devs are powered by money or some other overriding circumstance. I'm...
  16. I've been taking a break from drivers and doing...

    I've been taking a break from drivers and doing easy userspace stuff. I have a few drivers to work on during break, though.

    As much as I'd love to take a job from AMD, I'm still in school and...
  17. Tom's code was merged prior to the end of his...

    Tom's code was merged prior to the end of his summer. He did a fantastic job, and his patches continue to come in. He's definitely a regular developer with commit access to Mesa.

    Matt's KMS driver...

    I'm sorry, were you going to pay me?

    My current state of Radeon affairs is like this.

    r300g is largely not something I need to worry about right now. Marek and Dave have been working on it, and...
  20. I've already pulled this patch into my kernel...

    I've already pulled this patch into my kernel tree, and I'll be making it available for Dave to test and pull once I can get it working on my Banshee.

    It's very cool to see this kind of code...
