I am working (as time permits) on the Appian Jeronimo 2000 board, which
has a gamma and dual pm3 (on two separate heads), so the code is very
similar to the GVX1, and i am actually working with John Gay who has
GVX1 boards. There is a very preliminary tdlabs-0-0-1-branch branch,
which contains code for gamma + permedia3 support on both the kernel
side and server side, but not yet on client side. The client/kernel
code, which i have not tested (how could i without having working client
side), supports the gamma+mx (more cleanup of the context swap could be
done, in the same way as the permedia2 code) the gamma+pm3, the pm3
alone and the pm2 alone.
Nextly i will be working on the 2D drivers so that my board work well
with the dual head gamma, which is broken right now, and once this is
done, i can begin working on the client code.
Also, M=E5ns Rullg=E5rd, did contact 3dlabs for permedia3 docs, and
apparently did get a positive answer, i think. he wants to work on
permedia3 DRI support (could be permedia2 also and generic delat in
time), but he mostly did video stuff for now, so i guess you could be
obtaining docs, if you are serious about his and ask, not sure though.
All this developpment could be done in the tdlabs-0-0-1-branch, i think,
and it would be best if we could coordinate ourselves so that we don't
walk on each other toe's, if it is ok with you Alan ?
I really don't have much time myself, so it will not be quick work on my
part, altough in october and later i may have more time.
