    Phoronix: Open-Source GPU Drivers For Embedded Have Been Improving But RE'ing Take A While

    Robert Foss of Collabora was back at the Linux Foundation's Open-Source Summit this week to present the latest state of open-source graphics drivers in the embedded space...

    Takes A While?

      For me it was not immediately obvious that RE stood for Reverse Engineering. Maybe not abbreviate that in the title at all? Because I don't think that is a very common abbreviation.

          Thought exactly the same.

              Are you merging upstream? How's the PS3 emulator?

              What about PS4?

              PS: Do you know about ScummVM?

                If more stuff works, also takes even more time polishing everything even more, plus might be rejected for number of reasons. PS3 emulator does not run Linux, it is emulating a higher level API to just run the games fast.
                What about PS4?
                Have enough x86 hardware ;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOUFRu349qM

                PS: Do you know about ScummVM?
                Yes, of course: https://t2sde.org/packages/scummvm

                  He held a similar talk last time, despite not being involved with any of the projects in any way, shape or form. He had the same useless plots last time round, and totally blew off correlating why all the ARM GPU driver projects started in 2012. He held a talk, and totally missed talks like this: https://archive.fosdem.org/2013/sche..._open_arm_gpu/ and then later claimed that he had no idea. I am sure that his ATI/AMD plot misses out on the fact that SuSE's Matthias Hopf was the first to show a triangle on r600.

                  Robert is one of those people who writes previouis talks on his conference bio. All he wants is a free ticket to the conference.

                  This sort of talk should not be accepted at any technical conference.
