currently I'm the only person working on this driver ( AFAIK ). But I
don't want to claim that I'm responsible for it. During the break
between winter and summer semester I was able to make some progress but
now the development is a bit stuck because of lack of time. I have to
admit that I'm a newbie, too. Jose Fonseca pointed me to thing things
that need to be done.
First, you have to checkout the savage-0-0-1-branch.
It should compile and and run, but if you check the logs ( dmesg and
XFree86 ) you would find out that adding of vertex buffers fails.
You might want to have a look at the archive of this mailing list and
read the messages which contain savage in the subject to get an overview
of what has been done so far.
Personally, I prefer looking at working code ( radeon source ) to teach
myself. But you should have a look at the developer FAQ [
http://dri.sourceforge.net/doc/faq/ ] first and the other documentation
stuff on the website.
