[directfb-users] MatroxFB in kernel 2.4 or 2.6 - which is the best ?
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
- 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...
