Phoronix: Another New KMS Graphics Driver Tips Up
Another new open-source KMS (kernel mode-setting) kernel graphics driver has tipped-up. This time it's for.....
Does David ever sleep? You're absolutely amazing! Go team!
.The open-source driver itself is based upon the design of the AST driver along with earlier work done by Matthew Garrett.
Dave wrote the AST driver as well. The G200 driver is based on the Matthew Garret's Cirrus KMS driver for QEMU. The Cirrus driver is based on my GLINT KMS driver, so the G200 driver is as well.
Wow, the G200 is a 14-year-old graphics card and its seeing new device driver development work in the open source community.
So things go from accelerated UMS to cpu-only KMS? How is that an improvement?
Is there any docs for the desktop cards? Might be fun to try and get the driver working with some of those.
