    Default Announcing The Lima Open-Source GPU Driver

    Phoronix: Announcing The Lima Open-Source GPU Driver

    There's still one week until the work will be officially announced, but the open-source "Lima" open-source graphics driver project has surfaced...

    lima is also an anagram of mali, i'm not sure if the devs or anyone else noticed that.

    If I had to guess... I'd say yes. Somebody else noticed it...

    Bugzilla really isn't the place for a pissing contest

    So is this project crap? Otherwise why can't the guys at fdo be professionals and accept this project?

    Is the kernel piece going to be open source too, or are they trying to implement the _entire_ driver in userspace (except for using already-existing mainline Linux kernel components)?

    Default Sounds like Reiser4

    Where it doesn't matter if the code is good or not if you can't get along with the project.

    Wow. _my_ friction...

    I really wonder how many project creation requests start off with Daniel asking whether a mailing list is really needed. Why else would one request a project unless to get a) git repositories b) a mailing list c) bugzilla. Asking whether a mailing list is really needed but not asking whether creating a separate project is really needed then seems quite off.

    Daniel has a long history of attacking radeonhd from the X.org/Fd.o side (there was this mailing list thing, there was him silently dropping radeonhd from the build script, and then it was of course his fd.o admin access that was used to hack/vandalize the long unused radeonhd repository), while not contributing much in code/software to the radeonhd versus radeon feud.

    I was hoping that after RadeonHD's rather disgusting climax, things would've changed at fd.o, that the same games would not be repeated. I could not have been more wrong, and i was very stupid to even try filing for a project at fd.o.
