I know there is a function for this in DirectFB, but this way I can ask the hardware where the IO registers are in the physical memory space, instead of assuming that they are right behind the framebuffer. At any rate, this is just a stopgap solution until a real framebuffer device is developed. When that happens, changes to the DFB driver will be minimal. Off topic: Btw, isn't the framebuffer becoming somewhat of a shared resource? Wouldn't it be appropriate with a memory manager for it, in the DRM module perhaps? /Andreas -- Info: To unsubscribe send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "unsubscribe directfb-dev" as subject.
