NVIDIA Adds Open-Source Gallium3D Support For the Tegra K1 17

An anonymous reader writes "NVIDIA's latest rare open-source contribution is adding Gallium3D support for the Tegra K1 SoC to the Nouveau Mesa driver. After they added support for the Tegra K1's 'GK20A' Kepler GPU to the Nouveau DRM kernel driver, it was just a small step to get it working with the Gallium3D user-space code as it builds upon work done by the Nouveau developers earlier with reverse-engineering the existing Kepler GeForce graphics cards. When it comes to desktop graphics, NVIDIA is still predominantly pushing their proprietary Linux driver but they have begun contributing hardware and information to Nouveau developers."

    This might be related to the Nvidia Jetson TK1 [nvidia.com] that will be released pretty soon.

  • The Nouveau driver crashed and burned on my system whenever I tried to set a resolution greater than 1280x1024.

    Absolute junk.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.

Working...
