Filed under
Linux

raiden.net: For ages people have complained about how there's no drivers for certain products in Linux (or insufficient drivers), despite Linux having the largest driver database in the entire world, easily twice as large as Microsoft's largest collection. However, the problem doesn't lie in what's supported, but rather when it's supported.

NVIDIA Posts Tegra Gallium3D Patch For K1+ Support

NVIDIA has out a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise... New Mesa code for Tegra K1 GPUs and newer! While NVIDIA has already pushed Nouveau Gallium3D support patches for Tegra K1 after providing Tegra K1 DRM/KMS kernel driver support, there's more code coming out today. NVIDIA's Thierry Reding sent out a nearly two thousand line Mesa patch that introduces a new Tegra Gallium3D driver. This "Tegra" code at gallium/drivers though isn't a complete 3D driver -- the Tegra K1+ still use the NVIDIA NVC0 Gallium3D driver for the actual rendering. This patch sets up a screen and forwards on the work to the Nouveau Gallium3D driver given that the Tegra K1 uses a Kepler-derived graphics processor. This work is needed since the GPU and display are exposed as separate devices by this NVIDIA ARM SoC. Read more
