    Phoronix: OpenChrome Driver Continues To Get Fixed Up, New Version Next Month

    The open-source VIA/Chrome Linux graphics driver stack may not have an up-to-date DRM/KMS driver or working Mesa/Gallium3D driver, but the lone community developer left working on this code has continued to improve the DDX driver over the past few months...

    Just a bit curious, is this hardware still on sale somewhere? Last time I heard about CX700 was like 10 years ago. Does the later Nano platform use same drivers?

      I do believe the Nano uses the same drivers. It isn't like there is a lot of these being sold though. There was talk of a new CPU coming out from VIA back in 2014 which would compete with Kabini and Bay Trail, but that was the last we heard of it.

        WIth all due respect for the current developer, but there are other projects more worthy of being pursued.

            Something 10 years more modern and still on sale would be a good start.
            Like say Mali GPU, or Vivante GPUs, or whatever more common GPUs you find in embedded and mobile chips.

              Will you be supplying such hardware?

                I can easily donate 30$ to buy a *serious* developer a banana Pi or somesuch (Mali GPU), but the low cost of such stuff tends to make me think you are likely trolling me.

                  Btw, for allwinner SoCs like the A20 used in the banana Pi there are also full hardware manuals available, hosted from the team that added support for most of the chip to mainline, but their GPU driver is a framebuffer-ish hack. http://dl.linux-sunxi.org/A20/A20%20...2013-03-22.pdf
