    Default A DRM Driver Appears For The i.MX51/53 SoCs IPU

    Phoronix: A DRM Driver Appears For The i.MX51/53 SoCs IPU

    A new open-source DRM graphics driver has appeared in the embedded space. Sascha Hauer with Pengutronix has released the initial DRM base driver for the i.MX IPUv3 as found in the i.MX51 and i.MX53 SoCs. This driver supports the SoC units necessary for frame-buffer support...

    oh come up michael it doesnt take to much work to work out what it might be , LOL freescale not very popular, not really you just dont know were their SOC's is popular Ereaders etc, now if you were trying to say the i.MX51 and i.MX53 were a little crap for today's PAD's then sure compared to A9/A15, they do have a PCiE on SOC though so not all bad.

    ill spell it out , pengutronix do ARM support and recommend the boot loader Barebox .on their Board Support Packages page , http://barebox.org/ has a Mailing List and you find Sascha Hauer posting there http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail...ch/thread.html and low and behold you have your "connections" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcSxL8GUn-g http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connections_(TV_series)


    now the fact freescale have FINALLY got around to porting the existing i.MX code to their ARM i.MX6 quad inside linaro ( i told you to keep and eye on that ML) then its probable (i didn't check so take it with salt etc) sascha did a i.MX mono/dual/quad driver for barebox, that happens to be very similar in functionality on the face of it to the genesi boot code , the same genesi https://www.genesi-usa.com/corporate that use and have made i.MX devices and stated they will do an ARM i.MX6 (we assume quad but who knows) and their developers have been responsible for bringing you that faster ARM hard float etc.....you ignored their top developer when he posted here a while back about that hard float when you didn't give them credit remember.

    thats odd i was OC replying to yesterday's http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTA2NTM rather than this one, but no matter, was it more partial code for several of the freescale Invisible Pink Unicorn (IPU)/Digital_image_processing parts in the A8 i.MX51/i.MX53 for pengutronix's recommended boot loader it would appear probable and perhaps finally some i.MX6 related code http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I.MX
