recently viafb was added to linux 2.6.28. While it allows to use VIA's
graphic cards directly via framebuffer, it does not support all hardware
features (e.g. the mpeg-2 decoder or mpeg-4 accelerator). As far as I
know VIA will not publish any code about this, because of possibly
License problems . On the other hand, there is a X driver , which
does support at least part of these features (mpeg-2 decoder) and VIA is
working together with this project.
My question is: does anyone here now about future development of the
viafb driver to support these features?
Thanks for any info in advance.
