  • IsComputerOn - Updated nVidia driver
    TNT2 and TNT2 M64 cards The only downside is that it doesn t support downscaling As he also briefly mentioned in the aforementioned interview he still has not been able to solve the CRTC timing issue with the GeForce FX5600 cards Lastly he can really use your help if you have a yet unsupported card such as the brand new FX5700 and FX5950 cards If you do please do not

  • IsComputerOn - Interview with Thomas Kurschel
    In fact the official driver crashed because there was a bug in there if it encountered an unknown card And so I took the XFree driver and wrote my own Actually my intention was not to provide a general purpose Radeon driver but after I published the initial purpose many requests arrived asking for support of other Radeon chipsets and I found it wasn t that hard to add support for them so I did ICO You yourself haven t launched a new driver since March this year How come the driver wasn t updated in such a long time and when will it be Thomas The driver works quite well for almost all cards but the newest ones and I didn t have any specification or documentation of the new cards I tried to add support for the Radeon 9700 for example for 4 to 8 weeks long and I really couldn t find out why it didn t work so I had to give up in the first place A week ago I finally received documentation for these chipsets so things are looking much better now and ATI even wants to send me a Radeon 9700 card for free So currently I m waiting for the card because it s pointless to write a driver without having the hardware it s for I hope that a new driver will be there in the next 1 or 2 months but hey you never know what will happen Ed The above answer is slightly outdated on some points The new driver has been released yesterday on BeBits and the new card which he says here to be expected the next one or two months obviously already arrived within a week after this interview was held accompanied by the Radeon 9700 9500 2D DDK I love ATI Seems like it has been a busy week for Thomas ICO How did ATI react to your initiative what are they like towards alternative operating systems Thomas Without the help of several people such as ScottMC there was no chance for me to get in contact with ATI I think They are very restrictive with handing over documentation to any third party and even Bernd had to assure them that there will be a commercial future for BeOS Actually I don t really know which particular circumstances made them to cooperate for the BeOS driver But finally they are very cooperative especially to me I have sometimes received emails of driver writers of other operating systems because obviously they weren t that lucky with support ICO What is your view on the R300 Radeon driver that has been posted on BeBits quite recently Thomas Well it s a good solution to at least provide some support until the real quote unquote driver comes out but I think as soon as that happens the alternative driver will be incorporated into the new driver and disappear I don t like having two drivers for one card

  • IsComputerOn - Interview with Rudolf Cornelissen
    and then recompile the driver for it You see those IDs are hard to come by in another way If those cards are not compatible to the old ones we d have to wait for someone in the Linux community to do the reverse engineering While in theory I could probably pull that off too it just costs way too much time to be fun to me Besides I d better spend my time on other things which serves more people ICO In your latest news item you ve also been mentioning you will probably post the next driver version on BeBits as well What were your reasons not to do that before Rudolf I wanted to make sure the basic functions are up and running without trouble on most systems so I don t get overwhelmed by bugreports or create a negative buzz about the driver about my work By adding 2D acceleration and getting a limited number of bugreport after release we ve reached that point I think Also I sort of know now where the weak spots are so I know which sort of card types along with technical features need more work This way I won t be surprised much I expect ICO Figuring out how the card works without having the specs is simply a tough job Have you run into problems yet that you certainly cannot solve without nVidia finally helping you out Rudolf The toughest part has been done by people in the Linux community by probably reverse engineering Windows drivers The knowledge gained by that work has been implemented in several universal Linux drivers like Xfree and a few specific ones such as NVTVout and rivaTV What I did was reverse engineer all those drivers partly or competely to find out the register level specs of nVidia cards anew Alongside I used my own work on BeTVOut to set up some basic functions and I will use that to add TVout support to the driver later on as well Everything has been placed in the code of the openBeOS Matrox driver so it in fact became the nVidia driver So you ll find no copies of Linux sources in the BeOS driver In fact some things are ordered neatly now while they where put at random places in the Linux code Also some usually minor errors existing in Linux drivers do not exist in the BeOS driver because I tested a lot of stuff to find out the actual purpose of registers sometimes hardcoded in Linux drivers Also some stuff is implemented that did not exist in the Linux drivers I looked at by combining other stuff On the other hand of course I might have introduced my own mistakes as well Well you get the picture I think Things that cannot be solved are things I cannot test myself and some things that have never been done before like coldstarting the cards ICO Everyone gets discouraged to continue a project at
