This week:

NetBSD ported to the Infineon <a
M5120. The ADM5120 is a 175 MHz MIPS32 4Kc processor featuring a 6-port
ethernet 10/100 switch with Auto MDI/X, a PCI controller, USB 1.1 controller,
UART, watchdog timer, eight GPIO pins, and a multiport memory controller with
both NOR and NAND flash support. This Port supports most of the devices on
the ADM5120, including the 6-port switch (each port attaches as an ethernet,
admsw0 through admsw5), the PCI controller, USB controller, GPIO, watchdog,
and UART. Many low-cost routers, including the RouterBOARD 100 series at <a
href=""></a> use these chips. Ruslan Ermilov
and Vsevolod Lobko did the initial porting. [David Young]

NetBSD now has Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) support. More information on
DRM is available at mail. This work was done by Yorick Hardy against NetBSD
4.0 Beta 2 and has since been adapted to current. Work is on going with
several developers getting in on the action. Work is also being done to get
this working on amd64. If you have an intel or a radeon based graphics card
you should be able to get hardware acceleration going. [Various]
