[Openchrome-devel] Project status
Sun Mar 25 16:42:59 PDT 2012
Time for another update where the project is at. First of all you
will noticed that the current release branch was updated to deal with the
move away from XAA. The kms_branch was moving in this direct for some time
but we thought the need for master to move that direct was in the more
distant future. Well we were wrong, Fedora 17 has disabled XAA so we had
to deal with that.
XAA was completely removed from the KMS branch in the latest
snapshot. A VT switching bug was fixed in the latest release so no more
lock ups when logging out of a session. This also fixed a bug that
prevented the DMA command buffer from starting. LVDS with EDID also did
not work but have been fixed in this snapshot.
Currently 3 major bugs exist. The CLE266 mpeg engine no longer
works properly. The next 2 bugs are related to LVDS support on the XO
and the NC20. This weekend I tracked down the cause of whey this is
happening but have not come up with a proper solution as of yet. Please
give it a try and report any issues you see.
