Re: DRM/KMS for Intel graphics

Hi folks! Sorry for the long delay in updates about DRM/KMS, but it's
time to report that it roughly works, if a little flakily, with a
slightly tweaked but current libdrm, xorg-server, xf86-video-intel,
If you want to build it and try it out, check out the riastradh-drm2
branch as of now and build the amd64/DRMKMS kernel. (No other
platforms yet, although i386 might work too.) You will probably want
a serial console when you test it. Textual wscons should work. If
you have some spare time, you could also try a building a current X
server and libraries with the attached patches. twm seems to work
fine for me; x11perf fairly quickly wedges the GPU and/or driver, but
the X server can be restarted without trouble after that.
The next steps will be:
1. Update all the userland components in xsrc and pkgsrc.
2. Update kernel drm again -- which should be much less painful now.
3. Port the non-Intel drivers, particularly radeon and nouveau.
Let me know if you have any questions!
I will give it a try!
