  • You could pull Linus' 2.6.37 final from git, then only merge the drm changes, leaving the other stuff untouched.

    It's possible with git, but you might run into a conflict or two, which you'll have to resolve.

      lol you didn't get too far.

      Very interesting question, though. I don't know how to do it myself.

      • Here's the basics (not sure this is 100% right, doing this from memory):
        #clone Linus tree:
        git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
        cd linux-2.6
        # check out 2.6.37 on a new branch called my-2.6.37
        git checkout -b my-2.6.37 v2.6.37
        #add Dave's tree:
        git remote add airlied git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/airlied/drm-2.6.git
        # fetch the updates from Dave's tree
        git fetch airlied
        # merge drm-next into the current branch
        git pull airlied/drm-next

          • They in the kernel. Does xorg-edgers provide kernels?

              are they in linux-next?does xorg-edgers use drm-next?
              thats proper community support u would never get from a closed source dev!
              thanks
              With closed source I can at least update the GPU driver without needing to update the whole freakin' kernel to an experimental, pre-beta version

              • Use closed source then?

                • pageflipping requires the kms-pflip branch of the ddx and is on by default.

                    That's a ddx (xf86-video-ati) branch, not the kernel:
