It's time for another issue of the Nouveau Companion, which talks about the development work done on the open-source 2D/3D NVIDIA driver over the past two weeks. Among the topics talked about in this issue include PlayStation 3 graphics via Nouveau, using TTM memory manager, and the Gallium3D architecture. A stable 2D Nouveau driver is about completed with EXA support but currently lacks an EXA implementation on the older NVIDIA hardware and there are still problems with NVIDIA's GeForce 8 hardware.
I read on last news about Nouveau that some hardware has been given.
Would someone be interested by my old GeForce4-Ti 4200 / 64 Mb ???
I can send it to any developper that would be interested, instead of having this card rusting in my basement !
Let me know.
Hello, I've just updated the FAQ with information regarding hardware donations. http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/...9c78d7cf7f042b
We do appreciate them.
As far as your precise card is concerned, I suggest you send a mail to the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org, or join the IRC channel, and see who replies.
I don't need it myself just now because I'm busy with other things, but if nobody else takes it I'm interested, because I'll need NV2x testing hardware in a few months.
