Linux Foundation End-User Summit

We've known about this since April at the last Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit when this event was in planning stage, but today the Linux Foundation has announced their first end-user summit. The first Linux Foundation End-User Summit will take place in New York, NY this October. The Linux Foundation is hoping this event will bring Linux desktop users together with kernel developers and Linux vendors to increase the level of interaction between these different groups.

ATI & NVIDIA In The Linux Hollywood

FOSDEM was a week and a half ago, but the SD card containing a few extra pictures just turned up. The first main talk that occurred at FOSDEM was on the major growth of Linux within the motion picture industry and Hollywood. Linux is now the primary operating system being used in the render farms and post-production environments. In this talk by Robin Rowe and Gabrielle Pantera, this duo had discussed how Linux managed to succeed in this industry and one of the reasons was because of NVIDIA and their hardware support under Linux via their binary drivers.

Companies Attending The 2nd LF Summit

The 2nd Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is coming up in just over a month from now in Austin, Texas at the University of Texas Supercomputing Center. There'll be Phoronix coverage from this collaboration summit, and with the attendees list now online we've combed it over. As the event is still a month away, the attendance list isn't yet finalized, but we were looking at the break-down of different companies that will be in attendance -- mostly looking at the hardware companies. Below is the partial break-down of the number of representatives from each company planned for this second Linux summit.

Project VGA Hopes To Ship Next Month

Michael Meeuwisse of Project VGA, which spawned from the Open Graphics Project for creating a truly open-source graphics card, announced today at FOSDEM 2008 that next month he hopes to ship the first of his prototype graphics cards. However, before you get your hopes up, this is a very low-end graphics card. The current Project VGA board has 16MB of SD RAM, Xilinx Spartan 3 s400 FPGA under 100MHz, and uses the PCI bus. These first-run prototypes will cost over $200 USD with no guarantees to work or warranties. Meeuwisse at least has been able to secure an order of the first batch of graphics cards from his university. All of the Project VGA work -- including the hardware information -- is available under the GNU GPLv3.

X.Org Dinner @ FOSDEM 2008

While David Airlie and Alex Deucher were busy with implementing Textured Video in xf86-video-ati and even R500 and RS90 Textured Video support, those in Brussels for FOSDEM that are involved with X.Org had -- a good -- dinner. Among those that had attended were the RadeonHD developers, the Nouveau crew, AMD's John Bridgman, Jerome Glisse, Keith Packard, and others. Cheers.

RadeonHD Update @ FOSDEM 2008

Following John Bridgman's talk at FOSDEM, Egbert Eich, who is one of the Novell developers working on the RadeonHD driver, had talked about the status of the RadeonHD driver. This talk went over a number of topics from the ATI GPU block design to the software abstractions with the AtomBIOS layer. No major breaking news came out of this talk, but just iterating information about xf86-video-radeonhd such as MMIO-base XAA/EXA R500 acceleration, full mode-setting for the R500/600 series, AtomBIOS disadvantages, and full RandR 1.2 support. Egbert had shared though that TV-Out support should be possible soon and it just needs TV encoding support. Digital output support for the RV620/635 chipsets should come next week. AtomBIOS support will provide scaler support, the second digital output block on the RS690, and support for unknown connectors. The bigger issues to tackle coming forward are DRM setup and R600 2D support. More information can be gathered from doing a RadeonHD search or watch the video at RadeonHD.org. The X.Org FOSDEM videos will be uploaded to the RadeonHD.org server in the near future, once this Internet cooperates.

SCALE 2008 Linux Video Streams

Unfortunately, due to the grueling winter weather (and an added issue), we weren't able to make it out to the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) 2008. However, SCALE is providing Internet video streams of some of the speeches and other information. Jono Bacon, the Ubuntu community manager, had officially kicked off SCALE 2008 with his keynote on the evolution of desktop Linux thus far and where he believes its headed. An embedded video and more information on this keynote, which is entitled Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants: The Coming Of The Linux Desktop can be found on his personal blog.
