[directfb-dev] Re: Savage driver status

hi denis,

i worked on it for a bit, experiementing stuff, added some trivial stuff to
support the ProSavage DDR. i didn't get around to commiting it and i
actually lost the code somehow :P but it's trivial to add. i had a look at
the open source xfree driver from VIA and it had a lot of new stuff in it
like DRM etc. i might work on improving the Savage driver if my company
wants me to otherwise the Savage driver development is on halt for now. who
knows, i might start working on the CLE266 (pending on company approval) ;)
we will see.

btw, savage driver works ok for me on a PN133T twister board and a ProSavage
DDR board.

I don't think so, Alex?
