Description Alex Deucher 2004-03-16 07:25:15 UTC
there are also quite a few new features in the DRI tree that could be
merged in at some point (not including the updated 3D drivers in mesa).  off the
top of my head:

- mergedfb support for radeon
- dri-interface changes
- configuration infrastructure
- fbconfig support
- dri support, lcd dpms support for savage

I'm workign on this.
Comment 2 Eric Anholt 2004-06-16 03:43:41 UTC
All committed as far as I know, except for Mach64 and Savage DRI, due to
security issues.

Sorry to re-open this, but I have a Mach 64 chipset. What are the 'security
issues' ?? The package from the Retinal Burn and DRI SourceForge sites worked
just fine until a few XFree iterations ago. Then the compile still worked but
the XFree module fails to load due to unresolved references. But there is no
mention of 'security issues'. Please, please, please, pretty please, put in Mach
64 DRI stuff I am going through Tux Racer withdrawal symptoms !
Comment 4 Eric Anholt 2004-06-18 11:12:41 UTC
No, don't reopen it.  The Mach64 DRI *cannot* be merged, because it is
essentially a local root hole for anyone with access to the DRI device.  It's an
in-development driver suitable for testing on the machine that you're the only
user of (maybe), and you can get it using the DRI project's snapshots.
