|Subject:||Kernel mode-setting and PCI video on MIPS?|
|Date:||Sat, 1 Mar 2008 00:42:39 +0100 (CET)|
I saw some of the recent work in trying to get graphics setup out of the X server and into the kernel. I was wondering if that work (which is planned for 2.6.26) would mean that any card with a supported kernel part could then be used by an X server that supported the new kernel API. Also, since this mode-setting directly addresses the hardware and does not rely on BIOS, if this means it would effectively be cross-platform (or at least easily portable).
