[directfb-dev] Kernel driver
Hi, am new to this mailing list, i am C/C++ programmer and i am currently trying to improve the NVidia driver (i started reading the XFree nv driver code and utah-glx). Do you know if i could get additional info??? (other than by disassembling existing drivers :-) ). I would also pose this question: to make directfb working with many user-mode programs (i can currently run only 1 program with root provileges), there will not be the need of a kernel module?? How could a program be aware of the vidmem that has been allocated by other programs without a kernel mode surface manager??? A kernel module is not a sin: It would be easy to create (a i have tried yet). Linux has web servers and a lot of other things in the kernel, i dont know why it shouldn't handle graphics too!!! I have read in the site that the multiapplication core is at the end of the todo section, while i think it should be at the beginning!!! Even if it doesn't works well yet, let's make it usable first, then we'll make it work!!!!!!
