With the Nouveau driver
earning itself some new attention now that its DRM code has been pulled into the Linux 2.6.33 kernel
, there is another important milestone worth sharing. The Nouveau driver now has TV-Out working and being considered "done" for the NV30 class GPUs (the GeForce 5 / FX series) and is mostly done for NV40 GPUs (the GeForce 6 series). The TV output support for the earlier GPUs and also the newer GPUs is still considered a work in progress.
This TV-Out status update for this open-source NVIDIA graphics driver was made on their Wiki Feature Matrix
, which also shows the status of other driver features for the different NVIDIA ASICs.
