Today, everything will be leaked sooner or later, it may be just a matter of time.If you pay TI and the likes enough money, and sign the right NDAs they'll give you the source for the drivers, and you can then fix things yourself. Won't be able to release the source though, or I suspect even be able to release the binary except preinstalled on a device, but that's what smartphone makers used to do (before smartphones ran linux), and I guess what the military etc. still do.
And the worst thing is, the majority of the customers does not even care.Part of the "War on general-purpose computing".
They don't sell computers as computers, they sell them as disposable razor blades.
Imagination is shipping the CI20 creator (a new product) with an SGX 540 and Debian 7 with a first-party ES 2.0 + OpenGL 2.1 driver. The hardware has kernel 3.18 support afaict.Not TI, it's IMGtec, who have pretty much abandoned series 5 GPUs already, so no chance for updated drivers.
Good luck. Advertise the Pyra as supa-dupa device that is worth to have the best possible drivers. Which is actualy the truth.Right, just checked that... it's a MIPS board.
Well, time to ask Imagination then... maybe they can provide some kind of generic driver...
Hmmm, that graph only goes up to August for me. I guess they realized there's no way that Linux could be popular and decided to double check their data.
