    Default Nouveau Changes Will Make Features Like SLI Easier

    Phoronix: Nouveau Changes Will Make Features Like SLI Easier

    With the significant DRM changes in the Linux 3.7 kernel there's something to enjoy out of all the major open-source graphics drivers. For Nouveau users, it's particularly exciting right now and there's more hope for the future...

    I hope there wont be too many regressions.

    Only a code refactoring or is there any new versions too?

    Wayland doesn't work on nouveau.

    Well, this rewrite didn't hapen overnight and it has been in nouveau's tree for months now. However, we find and fix bugs as we go.
    On the other hand, a few strange bugs disapeared in the process, so I guess all in all, it is good

    As always, please test and report regressions!

    No new features (thanks to the rewrite) yet, we are fixing bugs first.

    As for wayland. Last time I tried, weston ran on the xserver but acted weirdly in drm mode. Seriously, if you want to see it fixed, fix it. It shouldn't be that hard.

    Yes, it works fine under X.
    But in DRM it just crashes the system.

    I don't know how to code in C, only some in higher level languages.
