Nouveau Companion 39
Phoronix: Nouveau Companion 39
In the 39th edition of the Nouveau Companion, this open-source NVIDIA driver development crew talks about their latest driver achievements over the past few weeks. Among the progress made includes further enhancing the NV50 support, a Nouveau XvMC implementation for Gallium3D (initially through a software-based implementation), and MMioTrace being postponed to the Linux 2.6.27 kernel.
Some G80 updates at last ;) Funny to think that once they do kernel modesetting (having tried it with an Intel X3100, I can testify it is the best thing since sliced bread), that elusive code to restore text mode will be useless.
Currently in Fedora 8: xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-2.1.6-1.fc8
Currently in Fedora 9: xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.10-2.20080408git0991281.fc9.x86_64
Looks like Fedora is going the wrong way!
