HW Acceleration Working

Even if he were interested in getting GPU HW going... it's not like he's going to get paid for the 10 or so years it'd take him to get it done... unless we can bribe him with beer donations?  Big Grin  Big Grin

Its one thing more, and longsleep will tell you this with his own mouth; in fact I can almost quote him... the only reason he even develops these kernels (for all of us too) is that he wants them for his own interests in headless linux servers and virtualization.  Please don't miss the next part...  and he'll admit this too readily to anyone who will listen... the only reason we even have hdmi support in the kernel at all , is that it was easy for him to do it !!!  If it had not been trivial for his skill set, hdmi would not have happened either... that is just the truth (and we should be very thankful that gnu+linux on the PineA64 even has an hdmi capability).    Dodgy

There is one more thing to add... and its fairly important... for this entire discussion.  Our kernels thus far have not had a cursor on the fbcon from the beginning (I don't know how many of you have noticed that) but real gnu+linux affectionados notice it immediately !  Angry  The fbcon is the ctrl-alt-F1 (thru F6) black screen consoles on a gnu+linux system.  Well, one of the things that the experimental drm integrated kernel does (by accident if you want to know the truth) is restore the fbcon cursor !!   Big Grin

Have any of you ever tried to edit a file with vim , um , without a cursor !  ... talk about a mental nightmare.

If you want to see this for yourself, download the Gentoo image that Xalius built; it has the integrated direct rendering manager , and it has an fbcon cursor !!
