One thing I wonder :
In less than one year (we hope so), there will be big changes in the opengl stack in linux.
So from my AMD customer point of view : will fglrx be ready for those changes ?
How AMD is anticipating those changes through fglrx and radeonhd ?
I am pretty sure that some of these questions will be adressed at FOSDEM, I ask anyway.
As lead developer for http://ttxinsert.sourceforge.net/ I would love to support the ATI card too. Since ATI open sourced much of its driver model I should browse through the available specs first I guess.
My question would be kind of an sort cut here.
The nVidia driver allows a user to overscan the composite output in such way that it scales the framebuffer beyond one visible line. This is great, but not all what is possible...
For the ATI card:
- Is it possible to natively insert data in the VBI region, not using the framebuffer?
- If not, is it possible to overscan the *entire* output, visible or invisible?
Would you have any tips for us in getting it to work on ATI hardware, maybe related to timing? (We now use VSYNC in OpenGL)
