    Phoronix: Libdrm 2.4.74 Adds Intel Geminilake, Etnaviv Changes

    Mesa DRM library updates aren't usually too notable, but that's different with this evening's libdrm 2.4.74 release...

    Vivante & Tegra support is nice, especially with all the android work i see on the mesa-dev mailinglist lately.
    Maybe we will see a step towards easier Android porting soon.
    How well supported are the Mali chips these days? I do see more reports for Freedreno than i do on Lima since a while now

      libv is the developer behind Lima and Tamil driver, AFAIK he is fed up with graphic drivers development as he suffered injustices/is tainted/something like that

          As it happens, Etnaviv was submitted for inclusion in Mesa just moments ago!

            I am not tainted. I am just sick and tired of always paying the same price for making very fundamental changes to the world of open source graphics drivers, and to, at best, not be smeared with shit. I get to lose customers and employers, i get to be blackballed at pretty much every single hw vendor, and then i have to take shit and useless nonsense multiplied (where did you get that tainted bit, did you even read that blogentry?), on top of which i get to see how everyone else gets to build a nice long career out of the stuff i pioneered or exposed.

            I just lost out on a 2y contract because i was stupid enough to state that i didn't want to give up on lima completely. That's about 4000h gone, only to see further people whine and make baseless statements.

              Do you mean there's lobbies against Open Source graphics drivers? That's something I always suspected in some way, but not sure.

              Is there a possibility to have a big & serious research and investigation involving really compromised and trustful people? Free Software and their developers need to be more supported

                I've read the blog entry at the time, I remember someone saying that you were tainted, don't remember if it were on irc/mailling list, sorry if that offended you.

                I've should worded better my sentence, as I've read a little bit about your situation,
