Libpciaccess Ported To Windows To Help Nouveau

The generic PCI access library (libpciaccess) used on Linux and other POSIX platforms by the X.Org Server and other components has now been ported to Windows via Cygwin. This porting to Windows was done to help in the Nouveau open-source NVIDIA reverse-engineering process.

Nouveau 3.14 Gets New Acceleration, Still Lacking PM

The Nouveau open-source NVIDIA kernel driver changes for the Linux 3.14 kernel are now known. The Nouveau changes are exciting in having hardware acceleration support for some new GPUs but is less exciting as it's yet another kernel release without proper dynamic power management / re-clocking support.

Nouveau Gets Page Flipping Fixes, Sync To VBlank

Last week was the main set of Nouveau DRM driver changes for the Linux 3.13, which included new power management and re-clocking code for this open-source NVIDIA driver. Prior to David Airlie sending in the DRM pull request a few hours ago, a few more Nouveau changes were merged.

Nouveau Receives Greater Re-Clocking Support

The Linux 3.13 kernel has major power management and re-clocking changes -- including automatic fan management by default and initial support for Fermi/Kepler GPU core re-clocking -- and now separate from that work are some more re-clocking improvements. This time around the re-clocking work is for some older NVIDIA integrated/mobile graphics cores.

Reading The Clocks With Nouveau's New PM/Re-Clocking

If you have checked out drm-next since yesterday when Nouveau received new re-clocking and power management code that's still experimental but brings initial support for Fermi and Kepler GPUs, you may have noticed the disappearance of the performance_level sysfs.

Nouveau Publishes New Power Management, Re-Clocking Code

Ben Skeggs of Red Hat published his set of kernel DRM driver changes for Nouveau to enter in the Linux 3.13 kernel... The changes are super exciting as they work on new power management and re-clocking support! From my point of view and that of many Linux enthusiasts, the lack of proper re-clocking support has been the number one limitation of this open-source NVIDIA GPU driver.

Reverse-Engineering Could Yield A Linux NV "PerfKit"

Samuel Pitoiset of the Nouveau driver project, and the student who was participating in this year's Google Summer of Code, has made great progress in understanding and documenting NVIDIA's "NV50" GPUs performance counters.

Nouveau Keeps Pushing Forward With Improvements

While the Nouveau driver has been developed entirely through reverse-engineering the NVIDIA binary blob and is largely developed by community-based developers (many of whom are students), they have made a lot of progress in recent months in pushing forward with new features and functionality for this open-source NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.

Nouveau Still Working On Power Management

Martin Peres gave a status update this week during the XDC2013 X.Org conference on the status of the project but in more particular its big troublesome spot right now: power-management / re-clocking.

Nouveau Might Enable Fan Management Soon

The open-source Nouveau graphics driver has supported fan control management on some NVIDIA GPUs for several kernel releases now, but the support hasn't been enabled by default. Fortunately, that may soon change.

Nouveau Driver Changes For Linux 3.12: Not Too Much

For those that were hoping there would be NVIDIA GeForce 400/500/600/700 Fermi/Kepler GPU improvements or better re-clocking or anything fundamentally advanced in the Linux 3.12 kernel for the Nouveau graphics driver, that is not the case.

NVIDIA VP3/VP4 Engines Exposed On Nouveau For MPEG-2/VC-1

The open-source and reverse-engineered Nouveau driver is now able to tap the more recent "VP3" and "VP4" video encode/decode engines on recent NVIDIA GPUs that make up NVIDIA's PureVideo HD technology. With utilizing these VP3/VP4 engines, there can be MPEG-2 and VC-1 acceleration using this hardware.
