In some weekend Linux graphics news not related to the much belated X.Org 7.4
or the recent open ATI innovations
, there is another interesting change to report on coming from the Nouveau developers who have been tediously
reverse-engineering NVIDIA's binary X driver. Recently they began work on Kernel-based mode-setting
and NV50 series EXA Composite / X-Video support
, but this news is different. With a git commit
this afternoon they have abolished their old DRI driver, which totaled over 60 files and thousands of lines of code, from the Mesa tree.
