    Phoronix: Tamil: Bringing Open-Source Graphics To ARM's Mali T-Series

    It's been a while since last having anything to report on the Lima graphics driver as the project by Luc Verhaegen to provide a open-source, reverse-engineered ARM Mali driver. While it's been a while, it seems Luc is still working on the driver -- or what he's now calling the "Tamil Driver" as the Lima driver for ARM's Mali T-series hardware...

      Ya, was about to comment on that. Another ungoogleable name in the traditional FOSS fashion.

      Name notwithstanding, I wish luck to the effort.

        I have the tablet on that picture(the newer 1GB memory version), bought it when the KDE tablet was still a thing hoping to be able to play with plasma on it, but all I ended up with was an unsupported chinese tablet after that went nowhere, still stuck on ICS 4.0.4 and a crippled dpi setting with about two third party modded roms(still the same ICS) that fix the dpi issue but don't support the hdmi output. Hope this will open the door for other roms.

            So can we please have a source code release for Lima? The limadriver project hasn't produced any open code for like 2 years now. The least you could do is release what you have before starting a new project, even if they are related in some way. What good is limadriver if no one can use it? Meanwhile freedreno has been improving like crazy and vc4 came up and out of nowhere (though I still can't get it to run, but I can compile it at least).
