VIA Pushes Out A Few More Driver Patches
Phoronix: VIA Pushes Out A Few More Driver Patches
Late last month the open-source community was presented with Chrome 9 series DRM support as the first step in providing 3D acceleration for these VIA IGPs atop a free software stack. Today we have been greeted with more patches from VIA's Bruce Chang. The patches submitted to the DRI-devel mailing list fix a system hang with multi X support, fix a system hang issue caused by 3D scaling+ACPI, and address a segmentation fault when playing video with AGP after resuming from the system suspend mode. These VIA driver fixes will likely find their way into the Linux 2.6.29 kernel...
Way to go VIA! I hope these will get merged with Thomas Hellström's recent work.
