Qualcomm Makes Open-Source 3D Snapdragon Driver

From Slashdot: Qualcomm Makes Open-Source 3D Snapdragon Driver

http://tech.slashdot.org/story/10/07/02/02...river?art_pos=5

Qualcomm today posted the source code to a Linux kernel driver for 2D/3D support on its OpenGL ES Core found on Snapdragon-based phones like the Nexus One. The company is trying to get this driver into the mainline Linux kernel, but it turns out that the user-space driver is still not open source, which has resulted in some problems already. The ongoing discussion can be found on FreeDesktop.org

Curious how this will affect development for our Liquid...

This event is only a pull request.

That driver is mostly the one that is in our kernel (it's even more like the one in liquid's kernel than N1's kernel, but that's another story), and has been available at codeaurora for months now.

This message just means that Qualcomm would like that this kernel goes into mainline, ie the ""true"" original linux kernel, so basically it just doesn't change anything for devs.

It will only help on the long run to have true linux distributions on our phones, but I think that not many people actually care :lol:
