[directfb-users] MatroxFB in kernel 2.4 or 2.6 - which is the best ?
Hello, I was wondering which version of the matroxfb would be the best to use in conjunction with DirectFB ? I am running kernel 2.6. - 2.4 : Even for 2.6 kernels, the author of matroxfb, Petr Vandrovec is offering backports to the 2.4 version (look at ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/linux/matrox-latest/) - because he doesn't agree with the new framebuffer architecture of the 2.6 kernels. I remember reading a post about this, but cannot seem to relocate this. Do Petr's patches already include the proposed patches in the DirectFB/patches directory ? * matroxfb-full-memory-linux-2.4.21-rc2.patch.bz2 * matroxfb-g400-clock-2.4.22.patch.bz2 * matroxfb-vsync-irq-2.4.21-pre6.patch.bz2 - 2.6 : I suppose the proposed patches in the DirectFB/patches directory cannot/are not applied to 2.6 kernels ? I wonder which option people running 2.6 kernels are using... Kind regards, Kristof -- Info: To unsubscribe send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "unsubscribe directfb-users" as subject.
