LXer: Intel Poulsbo DRM Proposed, But Rejected

Published at LXer:

Back in January we shared that Intel's Poulsbo driver was a bloody mess. This Intel GMA 500 Chipset is used by a few select devices at the moment and its core is originally based upon a PowerVR ASIC. When it comes to the Linux support, the xf86-video-psb driver is ill maintained (it hasn't been updated in over a year), the 3D driver is binary-only, and the driver is in a badly broken state. The Intel Poulsbo driver and its Linux support is in a completely opposite state of where the xf86-video-intel driver is at and the Linux support for standard Intel IGPs. Today though there's a new part to the Poulsbo Linux story.
