HowTos

I will use the free nouveau driver in this tutorial instead of the proprietary NVIDIA driver. nouveau is an accelerated Open Source driver for NVIDIA cards that comes with experimental 3D support on Fedora 13 - on my test system 3D support was working without any problems.

The Embedded Linux GPU Mess & How It Can Be Fixed

Filed under
Hardware

Earlier this week Qualcomm released an open-source 2D/3D kernel driver for their Snapdragon SoC that's found within the Nexus One, Dell Streak, and many other mobile phones. However, it was just the kernel driver that leveraged their own driver design and no open-source user-space driver, which leads to a dirty mess. David Airlie, the DRM maintainer within the Linux kernel, will not accept open-source kernel drivers that is only used by a closed-source component and as such there's been a lengthy mailing list discussion over the past few days.

Software

It was patch day for the test environment, the group of servers dedicated to testing locally developed code before it is pushed into QA, and then into production.

My Linux story: Coding not required

For more than 15 years, I have earned a living working exclusively with open source products. How did I get here? In many ways, my journey started before Linux existed. In college, I had friends who were admins in the engineering computer lab. Although I did not do too well in my CS programming classes, as a hobby and to spend time with my friends I learned about newgroups, ftp sites, and Unix systems. As a data aide student intern, I realized I made a good translator between the astronomers and the C programmer computer support staff. I could read just enough code to identify the problem, but not enough to actually fix it. Read more
