X@FOSDEM 2010 Video Status Update

For those waiting on our X@FOSDEM 2010 videos that we recorded, they still need to be uploaded. Each of the talks, which were less than an hour in length, are about 3GB in size with the original HD files. The Internet connection at FOSDEM in Brussels was better than last year, but still was slow and too unreliable for uploading these large video files. T-Mobile's WLAN connections in northern Germany seem to be not nearly as fast and reliable as they have been in the past in Bavaria, so this too is taking longer than anticipated and may mean that it's a few days until the uploads are in place and the videos embedded at Phoronix.

Until then, there is the following written coverage: How To Reverse Engineer A Motherboard BIOS, Cleaning Up The Linux Graphics Driver Stack, Notes From X@FOSDEM 2010: GLSL, X, Etc, and Jerome's Radeon KMS Short-Term TODO List.

There are also slides and presenter notes from some of the talks, including Eric Anholt's Cairo-GL talk, Jerome Glisse's KMS and Radeon work, and Nicolai Hähnle's R300 GLSL slides.

Besides the X@FOSDEM coverage, we also have videos from the CoreBoot talks the previous day. Those too still need to be uploaded.
