I was wondering about just adding something like DSCAPS_AGPONLY so the impact on the rest of the system would be minimal. For Matrox cards and mplayer this would be enough since the card can blit directly to/from AGP memory. There's no point in copying back and forth between video and AGP memory. It will need to register another surface manager for the AGP memory. I think the surface code wouldn't need much changes since each surface is already linked to it's surface manager. We'd only need to add AGP-only surfaces to the various switch statements. gfxcard and card driver code probably need some more changes though. Perhaps I'm jut being too optimistic. Dok, what do you think? -- Ville Syrjälä email@example.com http://www.sci.fi/~syrjala/ -- Info: To unsubscribe send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "unsubscribe directfb-dev" as subject.
