Phoronix: Linux 2.6.32 To Get R600 KMS Along With 3D
David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support...
And what about R800? When do they come on-line?
*** niceFedora rawhide users, just wait for a day and it should all be available.
So tomorrow all I gotta do is an easy "yum update" and 3D should start working...
The naming convention is (generally) to have the folder name indicate the oldest generation supported, eg r300 supports 3xx, 4xx, 5xx and rs6xx while r600 supports 6xx, 7xx and possibly future generations.
rbmorse, our focus right now is getting the 6xx/7xx code base solid so that we have a good starting point for future GPUs.
