Last week we reported that version 0.1.0
of the Avivo driver would soon be released and that following day were several noteworthy commits to the driver such as new PCI IDs added and cleaning up the code. Over the weekend, Alexander Larsson has added shadow frame-buffer support
. To use the Shadow frame-buffer with the Avivo driver using the latest code from git, the ShadowFB
boolean option needs to be added to the device section of the xorg.conf
. Jerome Glisse has also fixed the 15 and 16 bits
screen color depth with the driver.
