    Phoronix: Linux Kernel Developers Discuss Dropping FBDEV Staging Drivers

    Toward the end of November was a discussion that started about potentially dropping all of the FBDEV Linux kernel drivers that are currently in the staging area, but it doesn't look like that will go through, at least until the relevant hardware has seen basic DRM driver ports...

      There is a package on AUR, it's basically just a systemd service file for starting the same stuff with a kernel supporting the same features.
