Now that basic functionalities like standby resume and runtime screen resolution change are working reliably, these are the remaining issues of OpenChrome DRM I need to take care of.
I will categorize the issues by type.
- Add support for VIA Technologies VT1632(A) TMDS transmitter for DVI
- Add support for Silicon Image SiI 164 TMDS transmitter for DVI
- Temporary corruption of hardware cursor right after standby resume (annoying)
- Corrupted display when VX900 chipset’s integrated HDMI is connected to an HDMI TV
- Hardware cursor stays on after switching to a VT (Virtual Terminal) screen
- Replace the previous developer written GEM / TTM code with a newly rewritten one
Administrative Issues (Linux kernel tree mainlining issues):
- Convert file names starting with via_*.* to openchrome_*.*
- Convert functions and variables starting with via_* to openchrome_*
- Convert white spaces to tabs
- Removal of fencing related code written by the previous developer
If I can get through these issues, then I think OpenChrome DRM is ready for Linux kernel mainline inclusion. If the DRM maintainer insists on universal plane and atomic mode setting support, then this is when I will go implement them.
I appreciate your work on via’s graphic chip. I have pico-itx mb with via chrome 9 hd igp and
am currently running win7 on it as I haven’t been able to get linux with X running on it
probably since fedora 18 or so.
Even with the window drivers there is no opengl so I cannot run stellarium.
