KMS Drivers To Unseat FBDEV For Embedded Linux
Laurent Pinchart talked at last month's Embedded Linux Conference about kernel mode-setting (KMS) and how it's beginning to unseat FBDEV for the dominant kernel display API for embedded systems.
The Frame Buffer Device layer within the kernel has been popular with embedded Linux developers for years, but kernel mode-setting drivers are now becoming common among ARM SoCs and other embedded systems.
Pinchart is one of the developers behind the Common Display Framework, called for Linux FBDEV to be deprecated, is responsible for the Renesas DRM driver, and has improved Linux DRM documentation.
For those interested in KMS/DRM for embedded systems, embedded below is his Embedded Linux Conference presentation.
